Winter cards (belated Christmas cards)

I hope everyone had a blessed Christmas & Happy New Year!  I'm a bit behind in sending out my Christmas cards this past year.  I was tempted to hold these for next Christmas, but since I didn't send any out the previous Christmas (on a roadtrip in Mexico) I felt inclined to send them out. ;)  It didn't help that a bad cold hit me Christmas Eve, wiping me out for most of the next week. Every year, the week between Christmas & New Years seems to be the week I normally scramble to get them done but eh, not this year, errr, last year, uh, last month, right.

Since they were so late I wasn't feeling especially creative. I have a hard time making more than 6, 10 or even 3 of the same card, but I stuck with it this time. I finished over 20 of these, with just 2 variations of the same design. :) Simple and flat!  A few of my family members (as they will notice if they see this post) received completely different cards, cards that I had made earlier in the year, just in case I were to run out of these. :)
