How does this ALWAYS happen?!!!

Christmas is the same time every year. Same day, marked on the calendar. Yet it never fails, it seems to sneak up on me & all of a sudden BLAMO!! It's only a few days away. I think I am very near done with my shopping. I got most of my out of town gifts shipped. I have most of my cards made....I think! I have not started to even think about my Christmas card list, so I'm not really sure if I am near the finish line. Hopefully the boys will give me a little quiet tonight so that I can think & get some envelopes addressed. Cross your fingers for me. I may have to unplug the xbox just to guarantee it happens lol!
So that cards that I have been able to finish I have been making in sets of 4 or six. these ones I made using a Stamp Fairy image, i think he is called Barry January. I added a few stamped in snow flakes, colored him using my Prisma pencils. I had planned to add glitter to the snow, but in my late night crafting adventures, I forgot.
I have been crazy busy getting all my crafted Christmas presents made that I haven't been able to post any of my cards. Hopefully I will be able to get caught up soon!
I am entering on the following challenges:
Stamp Fairy, Celebrate the Holidays
