Wow- how do you manage to create 2 beautiful cards in a day?! These are the colours I'll be using for lots of my Christmas cards as I decided to try out Kraft. I need to get a move on as I haven't finished the 2 very important birthday cards for the weekend yet alone my Christmas cards. I'll have to follow your lead and go for 2 a day! Mine will never look as good as yours though!
