Default WT289 Holiday Headstart (09/23/10)

Anyone ready to get a head start on the holidays? It's always great to work ahead and save yourself a little stress, right? Do you create one design in mass or create many different cards? I'm in the latter as I have a hard time making a design twice. I know it makes more work but I love it anyways.

So. What constitutes a holiday card? Christmas, Hanukkah, Happy Holidays, Thanksgiving even. Have fun with it!

Please remember to put WT289 in your keywords section and link back here. Please link only newly uploaded creations for this challenge to keep it manageable. Thanks!

My sample: Rustic Noel

WT289 Gallery Submissions

Thanks for playing along!

Happy creating,
Juila

I make 3 1/2 to 4 dozen cards using two designs. Because I make so many cards of one design, it does tend to become a bit boring making cards on an assembly line. I made this earlier for a sketch challenge, but I like it so well that I'm going to use if for one of my designs this year.

Thanks for the challenge Julia. I make lots of different holiday cards. I get bored making more than one of something too. It's all in the creating for me. That's the fun part.

Here is my newest Christmas card in rather unconventional Christmas colors.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks, Julia, you gave me the push I needed to use this stamp that is new to me. I've found, what I think are great, some old PSX stamps on EBay. I like to color and they offer plenty of opportunity for that! : )

I'm not sure if mine counts, it's not a card today, but is for the holidays. I've been getting a head start working on holiday home decor. I've made a menu, place card, wall hanging, candle stick and napkin holder.
