it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

I don't know about you... but I'm getting the sneaking feeling that Christmas is approaching - FAST!  This weekend I got that first hint of overwhelming craziness when I went to grocery shopping and it was packed.  Now it may just be a coincidence.  I mean, there is a strong possibility that everyone needed to be in the grocery store at exactly the same time with kids, husband and grandparents in tow, but I'm getting a little suspicious that the Christmas crazy is starting early this year.  My new strategy for dealing with this is order everything online from a cafe.  That way I can just watch the crazy go buy and enjoy the best of the season.

Speaking of the season I'm still making Christmas cards.  Here's another simple but stylish one I made recently.  I love the slightly old fashioned hand made look of this card.  Bunting has been everywhere this year, so I couldn't let my Christmas cards remain untouched by this trend.

My first card I stayed with the more traditional red & green, and for the second iteration I went for something with a fresher palate of blues and reds.  This was a super easy card to make, but I really like the simplicity of it.  What do you think?
