Christmas Cards: Cosmo Cricket

Hello again!

More Christmas cards yet today :)

I've started making this year's Christmas cards in early October, with the objective of making a big dent in my Christmas papers from last year.  Well, it backfired! LOL!  As soon as the Christmas papers started coming out again in the LSSs here, i just had to have some of them!!! For me, it's the much anticipated My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Christmas (and the L&F2 collection too, needless to say).  It took me a while before i could start cutting up the 6x6 pad to make cards.  And the 12x12 pack? Hibernating in my Christmas papers bag. Oh, well, there's always next year heehee!  :)

Among the pads i liked is Cosmo Cricket's Dear Mr. Claus

I think the same thing every year: "Well, I already have a lot of Christmas patterned paper, so I really won't need to buy any this year..." and then I see the new lines and that theory goes right out the window! LOL!
I love how you used the Cosmo Cricket papers to make your cards-- they're all fabulous!
