Whew!  I had a few days of missing mojo there and I was starting to panic!  I think I’m experiencing sensory overload with all my Christmas stamps and papers set out on my worktop.

I coloured and fussy cut some Moose images on Sunday and then had a devil of a time deciding what layout to use with them.  I am loving the clean and simple card designs that are so popular right now but I want to use LOTS of patterned paper when making my Christmas cards so the layouts that are inspiring me don’t work with my plans.

 …and now I have 4 Christmas cards in my stash!  It’s a start!
