Christmas in January

I know, I know Christmas was in December.  However, on the weekend I finally had time to go through a growing pile of stash and projects that has been on my desk since our house renovations last year.  I re-discovered three Christmas cards that I had started, if only I had remembered I would not have had to be so busy at Christmas.  :-)  Anyways, I have now finished the cards off and they are now tucked away safe for Christmas 2014.  I have hidden them away as I find if I look at a card too often I then don't want to use it as it feels old.  

For all of these cards I have used the wonderful shaped 'Speciality Cards', then added a 'Hearty Crafts Christmas 3D Papertole Die' all from Blue Edge Crafts.  I trimmed the cards with stickers, rub-ons, doilies.  Inside each card I have added some patterned paper the first and third card has SU paper.

Thanks for passing by, hope your Tuesday continues to be a good one.

Great Christmas cards. I know what you mean too about if you look at them too much they seem old and then you don't want to use them. I have a box of cards I have made that I don't send out for the very same reason.

Well done on being ahead on your Christmas cards for 2014! :o)
