Christmas Countdown

I heard the groan when you read this post title. After all, who wants to think about Christmas when the leaves are still turning and there are pumpkins on the doorsteps?

If you make your Christmas cards like me, you now have 77 days, only 76 if you consider that there is no mail on Christmas Day. Countdown Clock

For the past few years it has taken me longer to shop for the stuff I want to use (changing my mind ten times) than to actually make the cards. Who thinks I should just start shopping now?


Just to get you inspired to start creating, here is a pocket card for an article at Scrapjazz which will appear soon. These are what I am making for anyone that gets a gift card for Christmas.

I love it! where did you get the stamp on the center? I love the way it adds a punch of color.

oh my thanks for the reminder of how many days I have left to get Christmas cards and shopping done! geez if I wasn't stressed already. but really I finally have a design I'm happy with and now must get the supplies. now if only I could get stuff marked off the shopping list for gifts I'd take a breath!
