Bells & Boughs and Blog Candy!

By | September 20, 2010

Hi Stampers

I've been forgetting to post the swap cards from the Fort Worth Regionals.  This is one is from my friend Norma Hodges.  Isn't this card gorgeous?  She cut out all the poinsettia flowers!


I'll try and post a couple more in the next couple of days.

And now it's time for another blog candy give away!

As we enter the holiday season, we all begin to think about Christmass cards.  Now if you've been attending my Christmas in July classes, you already have 20 completed cards to send out.  But for the majority of you, how many holiday cards do you plan to send out this year?  Are they hand made or store bought (gasp!!)?

Leave your response  in the comments section and I'll draw a lucky winner on Sunday, 26 September 2010.  The winner's name will be announced on this blog.  The winner will win a $25.00 giftcertificate for Stampin' Up! products.  I'll pay shipping and taxes.

  • Please leave your name and e-mail address
  • Claim your prize by 1 October or I'll draw another name
  • US only please

Thanks for stopping by today

    Love your blog Rachel…….ok….I hand stamp all of my 30 (plus) Christmas cards every year. I usually make 3 different kinds and mass produce them in 1 weekend. This is my favorite holiday to shine with making cards!
    thanks for asking.

    Oh it will be here before we know it too! I usually make around 50 Christmas cards, but I like to do a personal design on each one and for their individual personalities. Some are on the jovial side, but most are traditional. This should be easy with all the new trends this year! :)

    What a beautiful card. I love the image. I usually send out around 40 cards, all handmade and usually not the same one to everyone, I like to have a bunch of different designs. Thanks for a chance.

    First…LOVE this card! I handstamp ALL of my Christmas cards, and this year I am aiming for 80. I have about 20 done thus far, and do a few each week. I love seeing how everyone makes their cards…so much talent and love goes into them!

    Rubber Hugs,

    Norma did a beautiful job with the poinsettias and sponging.

    Of course I make my own cards! Including the ‘special’ family cards, I usually make between 35 & 40. I have a design in my head for this year’s card, but I haven’t started them yet.

    Pretty card…..I usually make 25 or more Christmas cards. I am going on a 4 -DAY stamping retreat in November with the ladies from our Stamp Club. I will be making my cards during the 4 days. Thank you for a chance to win.

    Beautiful card. I buy mine, I send (75 to 100) cards. I made ornaments last year and will do the same this year.

    I make Christmas cards all year long and I send out about 100 all hand made cards. I make just a few at a time and use many different stamps and designs. I make quite a few cards for some older members of our church who are no longer able to attend services regularly and a few for our troops overseas as well as family and friends.

    As always, I get many wonderful ideas from Rachel

    This will be my first year sending out all handmade Cards (since I’m very new to this)! I send out about a 100, maybe a few more…. we have a HUGE family & then add in friends! But I love Christmas…. so I can’t wait!

    Thank you so much for sharing & the chance to win!!!

    I send out about 40 handmade Christmas cards each year along with about 15 handmade Thank You cards to my co-workers. I did get most of them finished up over summer break and will make the last batch in October. I just love your blog! Thanks for inspiring us!
