My 7th Batch of Christmas Cards - A Cutie by Whipper Snapper

Hi Peeps!  How are you all doing with your Christmas "to do" thingys?  Would you believe I crafted for at least 17 hours this past weekend?   Yup, no exaggeration.  But these cards aren't what I worked on.   I'll post my "project" after all of my Christmas cards are mailed and received.   During the 4-day Thanksgiving weekend, I usually get a lot of crafty stuff done but since we were on a trip, I had to jam like crazy.   I told my hubby I'm not cleaning house this weekend, crafting takes priority.  LOL.  I don't think our house is very messy.  :-)  Well, whatdaya know, he cleaned house for me, toilets too.  Woo-hoo.  I should tell him that every weekend.   Nah, nah. 
 
For this card, I used the cute stamp by Whipper Snapper which I bought at Cute Stuff on Oahu.  That was a "must have."  I altered it a bit to make this a "Christmas" theme by adding a gift image by Dandelion Design on the wagon. The original stamp has a flower and kitty in the wagon.  I also used Spellbinder dies including "Fancy Tags",  Copics, sentiment by Dandelion Designs, punch by Martha Stewart, DP from stash, holly flourish by Cheery Lynn, and ribbon by Offray. 
 

 And here are 7 of them....

I'm entering my first card in the following challenges:
Papertake Weekly - "Anything Goes"
Loves Rubberstamps - "Week 29-Anything Goes"
Top Tip Tuesday - "Challenge #91-Christmas"

Yikes... that's lots of hours of crafting that you did over the weekend. Did you need a massage after working for so many hours?

Whipper Snapper stamps are always so cute. What a good idea to put gifts in the little girl's wagon. You always come up with such great ideas and layouts for your cards. If I had to make as many cards as you did my Mojo would definitely have gone on vacation. So glad that your's is sticking around. :)

That is so awesome that you hubby did all the housework last weekend. :)

Hope that you are having a good week so far. Hugs!
