I usually make 4 of the same design each month, but for this month, I decided to use parts of cards sent to me over the years, so I have four different cards. Each card will go to the original sender with an explanation of the year the card was sent to me. The bunny card was given to me in 1989! Yes, I'm a pack rat!

Got my April cards done. I used the same design as my March cards, which I finally finished, but changed the colors from greens to blues.

Thanks to vikkijo for hosting this challenge.

You're very welcome, I'm loving looking at the galleries!

Cards uploaded yesterday but only got a chance to post on the thread today. I've been making several birthday cards which are getting in the way of Christmas mojo so I'm glad I've got this month done.

Hey girls!

I am back home. Severe weather moving in this afternoon but all should be clear tomorrow and I can get back to normal schedule and get everything caught up. Thank you so much for your patience. Can't wait to see everyone's creations.

I think I will jump in and get started on my Christmas cards. Thanks for this challenge encouragement. Here is mine for today:

Done!
 
I got my ten done!

Seems like I can't escape Crumb Cake this year. I tried River Rock this month (cut the panels and everything) but I still used Crumb Cake after putting the first one together.

Here's my design for April. I wanted something quick and easy. Embossing and inking in with a gel pen was faster than coloring each ornament. Though someday I do want to spend time coloring each ornament in a rainbow of colors. I'm making at least 10 of these cards but might vary the background paper. Though I do love this SEI Glitzmas paper.

I realised I'd named it incorrectly and changed it but didn't realise it didn't automatically update. Boy, I'm still very much learning the ropes here!

Hope you like the card when it shows up eventually!!
