Hip Hop!

Holy, Heck! It's December!!!! I'm feeling the time crunch! Are you??? I'm hoping to knock off most of my holiday to-do list by the end of this weekend, and then I'll be feeling better. I'm thankful for basketball practices, because that's where I'm crankin' out my holiday cards.
So glad you are here today. Hip Hop always brings some sunshine and smiles to my day! This week we are showing off some Holiday cards. The ones I've got today are similar to the ones I'm making for our family and friends this year. I keep it CAS, so I can mass produce! I make about 80 cards to mail out. In years past, I make all 80 the same. This year I decided to mix it up a bit, by keeping with the same products (so I can still cut them assembly line style) but mixing up the designs a bit. So all of them will have the same Baja Blue (SU cs) and a kraft tag. The embossing, dp, Stamps, twine and ribbon will vary-keeping me from getting bored making them.

Here are the first 3 I've completed. I used the two Holiday {ippity} stamps-Season of Joy and Kissamas & Mistletoe!

I will add a picture of the boys to the inside, along with a handmade, signature stamp I use to sign the cards. I figure that's okay, cuz I put extra love into making my cards. I love getting photos at Holiday time, and I love to send them! It's always fun to show off my boys!

here they are upclose.
