Is it time already????

Now that we have survived Halloween and those cute little "trick or treaters", it's time to look forward to Thanksgiving and beyond. For me, it's time to start stressing about Christmas cards!
As my family and close friends already know, I often fall behind on Christmas cards and as long as they are postmarked by Dec. 24th I figure they are "on time". I have often ended up on the "every other year plan" for sending Christmas cards but I figure that if I get going soon then maybe, just maybe, this year our cards will be ready to go and postmarked prior to Christmas. Wouldn't that be crazy? Did I mention that my maiden name is DeLay? Surely that will explain it all!
At any rate, here is an elegant but simple Christmas card that I actually designed myself however it's not a particularly complicated design so I'm sure that many of you have thought up very similar cards. This one is the card we made at our New Creation Presbyterian Church Card Ministry last week and we'll be sending out holiday "thinking of you" cards to members we haven't seen lately. I was so proud of our card ministry stampers for doing such a great job on our cards this month....the majority of them have minimal stamping experience but are ready to tackle any challenge. They did a great job on these cards as well as several other projects. For a small group, we sure can stamp!
If you would be interested in more information about our church card ministry, I would be happy to share, just drop me a note at inkerzaway@aol.com and tell me what you want to know.

Great idea! Simple is often better.

I'm known to send mine out in January. This year, August!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who tends to be be more on the "every other" plan.......i always have great intentions but quite often they don't make me reach my goal. This year everyone I want to send a card to WILL get one :-)
BTW, I really like the card.....I hope I'll be able to get a bigshot soon.

nice card! I've thought about starting a card ministry, but not quite sure if I want to tackle it. Is it an awful lot of work?

This card is great for those with minimal stamping experience! I like the simplicity and the colors are so elegant looking. I'm still thinking if I should send cards this Christmas or not. I have good about it in the past but this year I'm on the fence. We'll see! TFS!
