*GASP* --- A Non-Challenge Card!

The busy time of year is approaching and if you're a card maker you know that it's already here.  My focus for the next several weeks is on holiday cards and tags.  I love to play along with Tracey McNeely's 25 Days of Christmas Tags which started this past Monday.  Last year I made sure I had my holiday cards completed before the start of her daily challenge.  This year?  Yeah, didn't happen.  So while I hope to hop in with a few challenges here and there, I probably won't be participating much until mid December. 

Which brings me to today's card. Every year I mass produce one holiday design to mail out to my friends and family members.  I do a single design solely because I would never remember the card/recipient each year and I do not want to blunder and send out the same card two years in a row.  *Gasp*  The Card Maker Faux Pas!  So it's one card design for everyone! 

Because I'm very much behind this year I am forcing myself to go CAS.  (I say this every year but this time is 'fo reals.')  While I like this design below, I didn't love it.  I will use it for some of my local helper bees who help keep my life clean and beautiful.

I do have another design that I'm working on now which I love a bit more.  I'm chugging away assembly line fashion, alternating between it and holiday tags.  I need 85 this year so even with CAS, it's gonna take awhile.  If you don't see me here, I'm busy in my craft room.  :-)

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I will be sharing my 25 Days of Tags here in small groups.  Hopefully I'll get the first one posted soon.  See you on the crafty side.....



  1. We'll ALL be in our craft rooms, Jules - no worries! I love your Floridian Christmas design!! and the strings of lights on the ship are just fantastic!! happy making, my friend!

  2. I'm not sure I could make 85 of any one card! Kudos to you! And for a runner-up design, this one is a lot of fun. Like the clean design and sense of movement from the waves.
