Waiting a long time...

My wonderful MIL gave me a Christmas stamp last year.  I had already made my holiday cards for the year; but, I wanted to be sure to use it this year.  

I had to figure out a design that made making 50 of them not too difficult or time consuming. I like the metallic look this year and decided on gold embossing. I had purchased gold cardstock for my Thanksgiving cards, but did not end up using it.  Luckily I had just enough for my holiday cards.

Thanks for stopping by.
