... and glue.. and cut..and punch...yeappp! Few more weeks till Christmas.

I made all these Christmas cards at a lovely friend of mine, Marlene's place on last Friday for a Christmas bazaar. We challenged each others to make at least 24 cards (at least). We had a great laugh when the clock hits 2 am in the morning and we still have few things to touch up. So basically both our challenges kinda failed... in a good way :) need to sleep.'d get this if you get challenge up at midnight...

I played around with my new PTI's stamp set. Love the simplicity and Marlene is kind enough to lend me her baker twine. 

... a "merry Christmas"

The original of this card is without the berries die... and I thought..'it looks kinda bored'. So that's the reason I decided to add on the berries and leaves die cut. 

... a "Holiday Greeting"

I didn't expect this card will look gorgeous with this patter paper. The leaves in the patter paper are glittery and just love the red, black, gold color combination.

... a "Peace be with you"

Decided to leave it as it is. Again, love the simplicity of all the cards above. Even though it took some time for me to apply the foam tape at behind of the tiny slimm-y font die, it worth doing it when I know the outcome is gonna be awesome.

Anyhow, I managed to sell two sets of these cards (3 pcs in one set) and few old cards during the Christmas bazaar on last Sunday. It was a great experience for me. I didn't earn big money but earned the experiences. Thank you to an aunt who been doing this years now. She told me, "as a crafter, never give up easily. Life is all about learning and experiencing disappointment, it doesn't mean end of the world. You just have to keep going and keep trying."-  Thank you for the reminding, auntie. I will keep that in mind. Never give up but keep trying.

November gonna end in few more days. Geez.. time flies. Few more weeks till Christmas and I need to send all the Chirstmas cards out before it is too late. 
Anyways, if you would love to drop a comment regarding my cards, please do so. Till then, stay safe and god blessed y'all. Love xoxo
