Yes! I finally managed to get a hold of last year's SU Christmas Cardinal set and I'm using the christmas rose stamp in there. I started yesterday. Have 4 watercolored images. At this rate, I better learn to watercolor in my sleep!

I am on my way! I start my Christmas Stamp-a-stack workshops in August so have to have 12-15 designs done by now.

ON SCS there is a thread/forum/challenge about Christmas cards , the idea is to do 10 a month and share them with the group. I saw this around April and have done about 100 since then. So I should be good to go come December.

Here is my mock up. I need to get started on production now. I wanted to do something a little less traditional this year.

I've been working on mine for awhile. I think I have 40-50 done. I always feel compelled to make a few each of many different designs. Maybe someday I'll pick one design and make a bunch. I think I want to get the most bang-for-my-buck from my Christmas sets!

I'm trying out a few to see what I like. I just learned how to do the dryer sheet technique, which gives a great look to a snowy picture. I'm thinking I may use this for my card this year. Here's the link: http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=72594

I am using the Oh my Word set and doing Christmas ornment bulbs in real red and handsome hunter around the edges and on the bottom stamping the words Merry from the Meyers. I am then going to cut the middle out to insert out family picture. I think I will mount it on a Dotted BG in real red and then mounted again on handsome hunter.

I'm using a retired set. I've stamped all my Santa images but haven't colored them yet. I did decided what to do with them after they are colored, though. I really need to get busy.

Just the regular size we use for cards. They'll be a little big, but I'm not going to fuss with finding the perfect size envelope. If I was ambitious, I might make the right size - but that's too time consuming for the number of cards I send.

I start my stamp-a-stacks with my demo in August. After I stamp with her for several months and participate in a swap (also with her) I end up only needing to make about 10-12 additional cards. I usually take one of my favorites and reproduce it.
I did order festive favorites yesterday, so I'll probably do something with the reindeer tag.
