Cards? Good Grief Here I Go Again!

Do you seriously want me to crumble up in a mush of paper and ink?  Just tell me it's World Card Making Day and I'll do just that.  I've have this total creative block when it comes to making cards.  Don't ask me why but I do.  World Card Making Day is my kick-off season to try and get a few Christmas cards made.

Do you believe I fought myself all weekend for the one simple design?  I did.  I even procrastinated by washing my car.  LOL  My goal is to make 4 cards from now until it's time to mail them for Christmas.  I thought I would make one design each week and create the card 4 times.  It was easier on card 2, 3, and 4!

I am so not happy with the photos.  I'm trying to do more photos indoor, but I'm trying to figure out the setting to get a truer color. 

On a Personal Note

This is Papa's little girl.  Mimi and Ali was carrying on a perfectly good conversation when Papa walks into the room and says "Hey!"  (hello in the south).  Ali's face lit up with the world's biggest smile.  This smile was just an afterwards smile.  I've never seen a baby with such a big beautiful smile like this one.  We love our little granddaughter Ali. 

Have a Crafty Day!
