I've decided to issue myself a personal challenge. I must complete 52 (1 per week--I will have to catch up on 9) Christmas cards. They will all have to be from a different Christmas set. (yes I actually have 52 Chrismas sets... yikes!) With that in mind, I will have a very small amount of cards to make during the busy holiday season. I will still have to make my cards for card classes and complete the weekly challenges I started participating in. No problem! I will count them off as they are posted...stay tuned!
