5 Card Friday - Month 1

Hello Everyone,

Happy 5 Card Friday!  Christmas has come and gone and this year I was slow creating my cards to send out.  But with the new year upon us I have made a vow/challenge to myself not to let the same thing happen again.  So I have put myself on a year long challenge to complete 60 Christmas cards by December.  That breaks down to 5 cards a month.  Each 3rd Friday of the month I will show the 5 Christmas card I have created. Here are my first 5:

Card # 1 - This card is made from a brown lunch bag that I used the bottom of the bag to create a pocket to hold the gift hard.  Super simple!

Card #2 - Kraft card stock, stamps and a ribbon. Can't get any easier.

Card #3 - A simple layout and great paper from Colorbok made this card adorable...

Card #4 - ...And this card as well.  Images from Sliekje.

 Card #5 - A quick 10 minute card.  Yup, 10 minutes from start to finish.

So here they are.  I am proud of myself for getting on the ball and getting them up. I can't wait til next month to see the next 5.

Thank you all for stopping by and will see you soon with the next project.
