Love all the cards, great job ladies. I like to make cards just to let people know I was thinking of them.

I love to make those everyday kind of cards the most as I donate 95% of my cards to Operation Write Home. Christmas card making is a close second. BTW, I just got the Christmas Cheer pad and have already made two cards with it. It's my favorite Christmas pad for 2012.
