Christmas Cards!

This year, I thought I was going to be so on top of it, at least better than last year.  My goal with Christmas cards is to make between 30-35, usually about 15 separate designs.  I know that I could make it WAY easier on myself and just send everyone the same one, or maybe have only two or three designs.  But, I enjoy making them so much (and I have to justify why I have SO many Christmas stamps).  Last year, I had planned to be working on them throughout December, but I ended up sick for the whole month so that didn't quite work.  Instead, I had a marathon few days and with help from my awesome husband got them all done.  But it nearly killed me (and him)...really.  This year, I have things planned out to make 2 designs a day until I have enough.  I'm still on track and now have a backlog of cards to share!  This is the first, and I can't quite decide which version I like best.  But, I'm leaning towards the first one.
Stamps: A Muse peace on earth (prototype), Savvy Stamps Merry Christmas (inside), and Putting on the Ritz "Bethlehem scene"
Paper: Memory Box sapphire A2 notecard, Impress kraft paper, A Muse white cardstock
Inks: VersaMark, VersaMagic Night Sky chalk (inside)
Misc.: JudiKins white embossing powder and A Muse sheer white ribbon
