Getting Ready for Christmas 2014

Happy New Year Peeps! I hope you are all well and enjoying the first day of 2014.

The tree is still up and I am still crafting Christmas cards for next year. I've been getting organized a bit too. I bought a couple of photo boxes at Michael's last week. They were on sale and I got them for $1.66 each. One is now holding my Christmas stamps. The other has completed cards, as well as Christmas images, sentiments and papers. Having everything in two neat boxes means being able to put together Christmas cards in a snap.

Here are two Christmas cards I put together in less than an hour. I had previously made the tag and coloured the image.

Foil background previously made

Sentiment cut from a card years ago

Thanks for visiting my blog. My 2014 bring many good things into your life.

Blessing hugs,
