Christmas Extravaganza!

Hello everyone! Christmas was such a great time; spending time with family and of course all the Christmas cards I was able to make.  :)  This was the first year I tried making cards for teachers I work with often and staff that I communicate with on a daily basis.  I was fun trying to come up with ideas and actually creating the cards.  I decided with the amount of cards I had to make for everyone that it would be best to make mini cards, which were about 4x2.75 inches.  I made a total of 30 cards with 22 designs.   I forgot to take photos of the last couple of cards that I made for my sister to give to her children's teacher and the cards I ended up sending out to my friends - party fowl :(.  I started making the cards in September and slowly worked on them through out the couple of months.  It was a slower process as I had to squeeze in time to make so many, mainly because I also had a Scrapbook Project I was commissioned to make for a co-worker.  I had a few Christmas stamp sets, but found ways to stretch my other stamp sets to fit the theme.

The stamps sets I used are:
- AmyR Stamps: Snowman Sentiments
- AmyR Stamps: Happy Christmas Sentiments
- Avery Elle: Home Sweet Home
- Lawn Fawn: Cheery Christmas
- Lawn Fawn: Home for the Holidays
- Mama Elephant: Raindeer Games
- Mama Elephant: Girlfriend
- My Favorite Things: Beary Birthday
- My Favorite Things: BB Beast Friends
- My Favorite Things: BB Lucky Dogs
- My Favorite Things: BB Santa's Elves
- My Favorite Things: BB Jingle All the Way
- My Favorite Things: BB Somebunny
- My Favorite Things: LJD Home Yourself at Home
- Paper Smooches: Bitty Bungalows

Here are the series of cards...
