Every year I try to make my Christmas cards and I never seem to have enough time and the process becomes stressful and a chore rather than a labor of love. Soooooo, last year I sent out store bought cards and saved the ones I made last year to send out THIS year. Currently I am working on NEXT year's card. I know that seems a bit odd, but it sure takes the pressure off. If I don't get the cards done it's no big deal because I can work on them after Christmas, even into the new year. Stress kills, ladies!!! Let's plan on living a long time :-)

This photo was oriented the correct way in photo program. I do not know why it sometimes does this sideways act upon transferring to blogger, but it does. Sorry about that. I've said it before, I don't know how to correct this. Would be nice if they had a way to rotate the photo after it's been downloaded.
Used for this card: Snowflake Cuttlebug folder, Spellbinder's Oval nestie, Copic markers to color the lamppost stamp, Cranberry Stampin' Up ink for stamping Christmas Hugs.

*Note*  This is an old post from the former Paper Kisses blog.

'Tis the Season

Good morning~  No, I haven't forgotten to post, it has just been crazy around here and I have had aand and dealing with a few health issues, so many things have had to be put on the back burner.  But it will all sort out I am sure.
This is a previous post from the old Paper Kisses blog, but truly I have not had time nor the energy to sit down and actually do any scrapbooking and when I realized I hadn't posted for TWO MONTHS, I though I should at least save a post or two from the old blog and let you know I am still alive and kicking.
This is my middle grandchild's pages
for his album. Obviously it is Christmas morning. My favorite pic is the one with my youngest son with his arm around Fletcher. Those two are something else. Jerry is such a good daddy! There are no mats on this layout. I let the tree-patterned paper be the only background and I didn't think mats were needed; I rather like the look of everyone being wrapped in fir needles! 
Thanks for stopping by today, hope your week is a good one.  Hugs, Shawna
