My Favorite cards to make are Christmas cards, but I do all occasions

Awesome. Thanks for sharing the picture! I love cardinals. - Krista, Editor

I love cards that are unique and have that extra something special. Every single one of these has that! What a way to WOW...

My favourite time of year to create cards is for the Christmas holidays!! There are so many embellishments, stickers, stamps, papers punches, ( even more) to choose from, making it a lot easier to create a variety of beautiful cards! Take care. Anita
