Craft Sale Card Designs

Good morning everyone...I hope y'all had a great weekend!! We had lunch with Mom and Dad for Father's Day....my boys all spent the day with their families. It's hard to believe that my little boys are old enough to be fathers....sure makes me feel old!!!  I need to apologize to all of you on my email list...I was hacked this weekend and spam was sent to your emails...I am so sorry!!!! What makes those idiots think that they are going to sell their products by spamming people....what jerks!!!! I have changed my email password twice and have stayed logged out most of the day...I hope it all goes away!!!! Anyway....

I have been working on my Christmas card designs for the Christmas in July sale at the church. I worked on three designs yesterday that I can mass produce for the sale....sets of 6 and 8 sell real well especially if they are flat for mailing!!!
This one features an old retired stamp set from Stampin Up! called Nature's Christmas. The paper is from Anna Griffin and the doily die, pearls, and seam binding finish it off. I may have to take the bow off because it's just a little bulky.

This one features the Santa stamp from A Crafty Secrets Christmas set and the sentiment is from Flourishes Christmas Wreath set....the paper is Echo Parks Merry Christmas collection and the ribbon is the finishing detail.
I used Papertrey Ink's Holiday Button Bits set for the little button ornaments. The green background was embossed with a snowflake folder and the paper from echo Park and ribbon finish it off.

I'll be working on a few more designs this week and then the mass production begins!!!
Have a great day...I'm so glad you came by today!!!

I figured you had your email hacked, I just deleted it, it was obvious you didn't send it :) Wish all those that figure out how to hack or send virus used their knowledge for good. Anyway, your Xmas cards are beautiful, I love the layout, images and all the fun DP you used.

It is not nice when they hack your email and send out there spam, it seems to happen so often these days.
All three cards are gorgeous, I like the designs, but my favorite has to be the first one.

And no worries on the hacking, Joan. Same thing happened to me a few years ago. I knew immediately what had happened to you. So sorry.
