Back today with another card for Scrapbook Boutique.  How are things going on the Christmas card front in your house? Here is a very simple idea to make those ‘last second’ cards, you know, the ones that your husband comes home and says ‘can you just make me….. ‘ and it’s usually about 10 or so cards lol.
