My Start to Holiday Creative Fun

Mini Misteri 'n Mila - Choristers  Joy 'n Peace Sentiment
available at the DigiStamps4Joy Store
Hi Everyone,
It's time for me to start working on my Christmas cards and I have not even done one Thanksgiving card so I need to get the ball a rolling. I will be doing a few...because I am gracious for you as friends and followers. I love that I can share them with you because I have so much to be thankful for including this wonderful journey in cyberworld  with all sorts of creativity.
Last month I decided to reorganize my craftroom which still has me a little out of sorts.  I am still needing to make a couple of additional changes. I can't wait to see the final setup.  My son will be putting some shelves I ordered together for my final work station.   
This year on my Christmas cards I decided to do a variety...a total of twenty with ten of them each being unique with some of my favorite digital and stamp images. I will try...seriously it is so hard for me...I did say try to make ten of them regular postage Post Office worthy . The others I plan to go fun crazy with dimension and layers because I will be giving those in person.
Here is one I will be putting in the mail with my favorite 'Choristers' image from DigiStamps4Joy.
Supplies Used:
Digi Image: Choristers by DigiStamps4Joy
Sentiment: Digi -Joy 'n Peace by DigiStamps4Joy
Ribbon: Michaels

As it’s something I don’t like doing will admit to this being a copy and paste comment because I am unable to type properly at the moment, but didn't want to miss the opportunity to take a look at your lovely creation and thank you for joining us at Stamping Sensations challenge.

What an adorable Christmas card! I'm sure the 10 people to receive one of these will get a big smile out of it.
Thanks so much for sharing this in our Red & Green Christmas challenge this week at CWLC.
While I was admiring this cutie, I noticed that you're having an issue with your badges/blinkies along the sidebar re-sizing themselves. I found an easy fix for that (after it happened to me too) and you can see the steps for that here:
Fix for your blogger photos going out of size
Please be sure to leave me a comment if this works for you. I'd love to know that I was able to help you!!
