another sheetload of cards adventure

I have received a lot of crafty goodies this year from YouTube creators who were giving things away.  My husband thinks I'm very lucky (I am, but the main reason I think so is because we're married!) and that the YouTube crafting community is filled with awesome, generous people (it is!).  Even though I cut my Christmas card list in half this year (due to laziness and lack of holiday spirit) I wanted to send cards to the people who sent me so many wonderful packages of happiness, so I needed one more batch of cards.  Call Me {Crafty} Al and her #SYUSDec2019 made that possible:
stamp set - Itty Bitty Christmas; ink - Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green; card stock - Cherry Cobbler, Garden Green, Whisper White thick and regular; designer series paper - Dashing Along (retired); punch - Scalloped Tag Topper; Big Shot and Banners framelits (retired); mini Stampin' Dimensionals

This time I fully followed the layout, using three pieces of double-sided paper.  I made it a bit easier by using a punch for the tags and a die for the larger banner shapes (although they're still off-center, because that's how I work).  Normally I would not make a batch of cards (I get bored) but these SheetLoads make it easy and using different sides of the designer series papers makes each card unique.

Just as I was finishing up, I noticed that the Christmas Kickstart Challenge posted their last challenge for 2019, Last Minute Madness, and that's exactly how I feel about making and mailing a dozen cards one week before Christmas!

Glad the title meant something to you too! It's how the run-up to Christmas always feels sin't it. Thanks for linking to the final challenge of 2019. Hope you'll come back and play again in 2020. Hugs, Jo x
