Yikes! I can't believe the amount of cards I have made and I don't need one of them...LOL. I made so many last year, that I have a whole drawer full. I'm not talking little craft drawer here...I'm talking dresser drawer full, packed, jammed!. I probably wouldn't have to make another Christmas Card for 5 years, but I love making them. I will have lots to choose from, thats for sure. Anyway I made up my mind, after today's cards, it is time to start working on those stocking stuffer gifts and last minutes things for when unexpected guests stop by, no more Christmas Cards, however I do have plenty that I have not posted yet so if they fit the challenges,...watch out, they'll be posted! Will also not be crafting as much as I now need to start working on addressing the cards I will be sending, decorating and beginning my baking. Before I know it, the big day will be here. Thankfully most of my shopping is done, but I need to start wrapping and I also have to do my parents shopping yet.
Here is the last of my Christmas Cards (not all I have made)
This little Nativity is a favorite stamp. I do love the meaning of Christmas and this portrays it perfectly.

O Christmas Tree
My next project was inspired by this little $1 box of candy that I found in Target in the Hot Spot isle.
I thought these would make great stocking fillers but I didn't want to just wrap them or pop in the stockings plain, so I made a tall crayon type box for them to fit into.
These would be great for the guys in your life because it is so hard to find little things for them. What do you think?
This one looks so masculine! I forgot I had this pine stamp. Bought it at a resale a few years back.
Perfect for making something for men.

don't know why my kraft card base looks so dark. In real life it is
normal kraft color:?? The second picture shows the gate fold. I used natural
color jute to dress up the sides.

(this was the closest image I had of something that resembled warm and fuzzy)
