Christmas cards for Operation Write Home

So, I'm not good about sending cards out to my family and friends...  But, Operation Write Home is such an amazing cause, that I did get in the Christmas spirit early.  Maybe I will keep up the cardmaking after the deadline for OWH and actually send out some of my own this year.  :)

I just realized that I forgot to take pictures of the quilt I made before I gave it to the happy couple.  I will get my friend to take some pictures for me so I can post them....

Here are some pictures of the cards I made. The first ones were made with a chipboard set that came with a cardmaking magazine I just bought.

These were made with different stamps and little help from my new Cricut Imagine.  I used the Winter Wonderland one to make the poinsettia, trees and snowman, with color from the Imagine.  The holly was a brad set with the leaves and berry brad.

Inspiration for this one came from this post:  I thought this was very classy- I may try to find a different stamp...

The rest are with my Imagine and some stamps- but not Christmas themed...  I'm really liking the Imagine and can't wait to have more time to play with it!
