Merry Christmas!

Wow, two full years since I last posted!  I didn't want one more calendar year to pass without a post, and noticed that Christmas Cards All Year Round, which I've been enjoying this fall as I created these cards, had an "anything but a square/rectangle" for their challenge ... I hope that despite being placed on a rectangle, my hexagons will count!

With the business of grad school, cardmaking has been limited, but I've had a burst of activity this fall ... I didn't realize how much I missed regular card making!  This summer, I purchased the Happy Hexagons die from Papertrey, and decided to make a set of Christmas cards for a friend for whom I used to regularly make sets of cards.  Just as I was getting into the swing of making these cards, I had a request for cards from someone with whom my husband works, so I decided to make a lot more of these cards.  This person wound up buying my entire stash of cards, which I had anticipated using for my own Christmas list, so that in turn caused me to make even more cards.  So, here they are!
