Finally Decided! ~ ready to mass-produce...

The hardest part of choosing a card for an occasion is to stop myself from designing and playing with more designs… because I know I will “recognize IT” when it becomes.

I liked several of the designs I came up during my 2-week creative journey to design THE card I know will arrive... (I'll share those too), but knew THEY hadn't arrived yet, but would.  The night before my 11-year-old son discovered the wonders of embossing and spent 30 minutes being creative on his own... I need to give Jake credit for inspiring the 2 designs that I've finally happily decided to use as our family holiday cards. I have to make the Christmas greeting more prominent (my husband he couldn't see it) & will add that revised one later; I do like it the way it is though...  You have no idea how happy & relived I’m to be able to start mass production.  :P  NOTE: Don't look if you're a relative or personal friend who wants to be surprised.  :)

Stamp Sets Menorah is part of a retired Stampin' Up set - can't find the name (TBA).
The Dreidel and "Happy Hanukkah" are from an old rubber/foam set I bought for my kids.

I need to come back with the recipe for this and all the others I'm about to post (as well as the altered one). I'm sorry, I need to get some of the zillions of designs I've created up for someone to look at  :)  More later i promise!
