Christmas in February?

For the first time in many, many years, I did not send out Christmas cards in 2016.  (Hanging head in shame!)  I decided that if I want to send them out at the end of 2017, I best start early.  So here we are just about 6 weeks after Christmas and I have my first card.  I am going to TRY to get a few done a month so I have a good stash by the time December rolls around.

The Layering Deer by Hero Arts stole my heart when it released.  It is so life-like and just my style.  I love deer and it reminds me of our home in PA where we saw many, many deer daily.  We do miss that since moving but were happy to spot one deer just last week.  It felt like home.

I'm playing along with the Merry Monday challenge, a CAS Christmas card.  Thanks for getting me inspired to get started on my Christmas cards!

I still have another SOA The Perfect Reason card to share.  I'll likely be back tomorrow with that.

Have a great day :)

So beautiful Maureen, you have inspired me to start on my Christmas cards early. It's nice to hear I'm not the only one who didn't post any cards out last Christmas!
