Festive Friday on Sunday

I've never been one to make Christmas cards all year long.  This year I've made four already.  I know it's not a ton, but usually I pack up my Christmas goodies in December and don't look at them again until July or August.  I'm not sure what's different this year.  Maybe it's the 3 feet of snow we've gotten over the past week :)

My cards were inspired by this weeks Festive Friday Challenge.  

I hope you are having a nice weekend, maybe even a nice LONG weekend if you are in the US and have off for President's Day!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!

I have a goal to do 1 a week, and I think I do at least one every other, still not bad, and it gets those Christmas Stamps loved all year long!!! Especially that once I receive the awesome stamps for Christmas, Christmas is over!!! LOL.
