12 Weeks of Christmas – Winter Woods

Hi there!  If you have been waiting all week for the next Chrstmas Card sample for the 12 of Weeks of Christmas campaign I want to apologize.  I had a VERY exciting week starting with an emergency appendectomy last Sunday evening. I am recovering, but it has been a VERY slow process and you really don’t wait to see what I might have come up with for projects or posts while in terrible pain and/or on pain meds.  It might have been interesting, but it might also have been a disaster! So, better late than nver is this week’s sample using the Winter Woods stamp set.


If you are in the Raleigh area and want to attend one of my Countless Christmas Cards events this is one of the samples from which you may choose this year.  Look for more Countless Christmas Card Samples coming soon!


If you don’t live close enough to come stamp with me and want to make this serene Christmas card all of the details are below.  If you have questons, need help or want to order any of the supplies I used please contact me. I would be happy to help you!
