Its been a minute...its the sleep thing again.  But I am trying to roll with it. 

I am trying to make 5 Christmas cards a month so I will not be scrambling at the end of the year.  This month I made 10 cards of two different designs bringing my total to 30. My year end goal is 60; coming down from 120 5 years ago. Last year was 75.  

We usually get about 35-40 cards each year. I guess unless you're a cardmaker sending Christmas cards is not a high priority. I miss getting them, but will keep sending them out to family, close friends and my crafty friends.

Today's card is visiting the gallery at Christmas Kickstart, the theme is mini slimline.  This was an easy and quick card. 

Thanks so much for visiting.

I am wondering are strawberries a spring or summer fruit for those of you in the northern hemisphere?  Having lived so long in California, they are definitely spring for me. We have them in March, in Maryland we can pick them beginning in May which leans a bit towards summer in my mind (corrupted by those years in California when summer was May to October weather wise.)

None the less, since Summer doesn't officially start until late June, I think Strawberries will be perfect for the Spring challenge at Four Seasons.  I appreciate that the challenge gives a mood board (below) but doesn't require that you follow it.  I am also sending this to the gallery at Die Cut Diva's who has an anything goes theme this month.

I am using supplies from The Greetery, copics, inks and some white embossing of the Sugar Pea Designs Sentiment.  I made several of these cards, some on white and some on that pale yellow green cardbase. There is a little brass SU ladybug hiding near the blooms.


Thanks so much for visiting.
