Christmas Card Set

 Here are some really simple cards that I actually made at work today.  I know... WORK?!  Yep.  I am a church secretary and we just had our 7th annual "Sounds & Tastes of Christmas" program last Saturday night and it was wonderful!  We invite other area pastors to come read a portion of the Christmas story, and invite their churches to bring special music and I alternate them throughout the service.  Then we enjoy a time of fellowship and cookies/punch/coffee etc.  SO... it has been my "thing" to make up thank you's to send all the participating churches and this is what I decided to do this year. 

I got the digital paper and image from Doodle Pantry Digital Doodles.  These went really quick because I kept em simple and used the "assembly line" technique.  Was able to make this whole set in about an hour and a half.  There's 3 or 4 basic designs and the rest are duplicates.  I also used raffia (to resemble the hay) and a Martha Stewart punch for snowflakes and dew drops for the centers.  Here are some close-ups of the styles.



BTW... there's LOTS of chances to WIN FREE DIGIS at Doodle Pantry!  They have  bi-weekly challenges on their Blog (5th and the 20th) in which one player will get a $20 Gift Certificate to the DP store, and 3 will win one FREE digi of their choice along with a "Top 3" badge for your blog (only allowed one entry per challenge), and then they also have a monthly challenge in their CDAC forum where 2 or 3 winners will win a FREE DIGI of their choice... all you have to do is upload your DP creations (one allowed per week) and winners will be picked at the end of the month  =) 

Hope you're enjoying a wonderful Christmas.  And Terri (from Home Fedral), if you're reading this... THANK YOU for your time and friendliness in getting us all set up!  You're so sweet.  Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!!
