I think I've finished my Halloween cards for this year, unless I get a request from someone, and now I can totally concentrate on Thanksgiving and Christmas. My Christmas stash is coming along quite well; I have probably half of what I'll need done and ready.
Each year, I make about 25 for family and friends, then another 50 to75 which I donate to a local Senior Center. I've been doing that for the last 7 years. The first year, I took maybe a dozen or so Christmas cards which were extras I had made and dropped them off at the center, asking only that they be offered to those seniors who were least able to get out to purchase cards for their grandkids/family. The following year, I got a phone call from one of the center's volunteers, asking me if I was going to have extras to donate again that year. The cards were popular enough that the seniors were hoping there would be some available.
I scrambled around, made as many as I could, and promised myself (and the Center) that I'd have cards for the following year. Each year the number of cards I have for them has grown and last year I managed to donate 70 cards. Not a single one went unused. :-D
This card was made with one new die, one old die, two embossing folders, and it's all scrap bits of this and that.
That's it for today. With any luck, I'll be able to post again tomorrow so be sure to stop by. Happy Crafting. NanaConnie
