Whew! Managed to meet my challenge!

With the four of these cards that I completed this afternoon, I managed to meet my personal challenge to make 80 Christmas cards for Operation Write Home from a 4 1/2 x 6 1/2" stack I found at Hobby Lobby.

In fact, I got 81 completed and still have 8 sheets left in the stack.  I saved those for last because they have newsprint and music printed on them and can be used for another purpose.

The sentiment was embossed so that it would stand out on the textured paper.  The boxes as well as the scalloped border pieceare made from paper scraps.   I tied some bows and attached them with mounting foam pieces.

Just when I thought I had used the Christmas paper I have on hand, I found an entire Cropper Hopper full in one of the bottom Jet Max cubes.  ***sigh*** Guess I'm not through with holiday cards after all!
