Santa Claus

Is it too early to make Christmas cards?  We have 11 months to go before another Christmas!

I have always taken pride in my early preparation and no stress during the holiday season, until last year.  A box of Christmas cards I prepared for my mom was lost in the mail.  I can't tell you how upset I was as I was used to the stress-free Christmas card making but last year the process was not so fun.

The lesson learned is to make them early and send them early.  In case it gets lost in the mail I will have enough time to catch up.  I like this activity as my creative outlet, not a source of stress!

To warm up my Christmas card-making mode I used one of the sketches from Make it from Your Heart Volume 2 and some stash:

I know it is too early to say this but I do feel a bit of relief after I have just ONE Christmas card done.  It's a good start, isn't it?

My card is linking up to the following:
