2017 Christmas Cards Series Card: 9

Today's card is so cute I can't stand it!!

I am using MFT's Jingle all the way stamp set - a favorite of mine!
The design of this card is the same as card's past. 
My goal this  year was to use the same design and change the images for different looking cards.
In 2016 I did a different approach - I used the same stamp set and designed 10 different cards around it.

I have to say I like this better, 
easier to make multiple cards.
Anyway, I am 1 card away from my 10 cards goal for this series.
See you soon!!!

Christmas Card Series: Cards 7 & 8: Same design but new images


I am taking a break from the polar bears to bring you
MFT's Santa's Elves 
I got this set last year and it was too late to use it on my cards.
I still love it and wanted to create a few cards for you.
Close up! 
Close up 2!

Notice the design is the same as other cards I have shown here, 
but by changing the image I created a brand new card!

Sometimes we need to create a bunch of cards and it helps to have a go to design.
I guess this one is mine for this holiday season!

Hope you like it...more cards to come!
