Christmas Flashback-Year 1

I found almost ALL of my previous year's Christmas Cards! Year 2 seems to be AWOL, and last year, but all others have been accounted for!

Let me first start by explaining that I mass produce one card each year. And our "list" averages right around 100 people. With family, co-workers, college friends, neighbors, etc. it adds up fast! Creativity is the biggest challenge, and I tend to me a "Last Minute Lucy!", so multiples of 1 idea works best for me! I believe these cards are from 1999. There are 3 versions, with the background being different one each one.

Let me also point out that I was not a demo at this time, and I'm pretty sure this was my first year stamping. I attended a workshop early in the year, and started with Valentine's project for my older son's preschool class. It snowballed from there!

The set was called Stitched Santa. I parted ways with him long ago, but I would bet he's still available out there somewhere! Colors are Glorious Green and Real Red, or was it "Rocket Red" back then??? Santa was stamped in Green, and accents were done with a marker. The ribbon must have been from Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

Enjoy! Year 2 is missing, so I'll be back tomorrow with Year 3!
