Christmas on a budget







Last year I made about 75 cards and spent about $45 on postage for those cards. This year DH told me to either mail less or make it cost less for postage. LOL So the theme of these cards is beautiful but small postage. haha



I got my new Flourishes stamps yesterday that I had won in the drawing for Sept. I am sure Jan Marie will cringe if I win anything again, I caused some confusion for her. haha Hopefully she won't hold that against me. Flourishes is having blog candy on their Newsletter be sure to check it out if you own Flourish stamps!



I love this Angel and the set has so many options to it. I really like how these turned out and hope you do too. If you want to see the scoring better or a closer look just click on each picture. Make sure to check back Monday for another Monday Mouse Madness challenge. Have a wonderful Saturday!

These are all just beautiful... I hear ya about the cost of mailing. I make a few cards that cost more but for my mass mailing I keep it with the standard postage. Gosh, how are we all going to afford Christmas this year?!!
