Beginning my Christmas cards... finally!

I started.. One down, about a million to go! Geesh!
I am so late in the season this year for everything that I'm about to go CRAZY! I usually have all my shopping done, wrapping paper bought, etc., I have YET to buy ONE single present! ugh... I am ashamed...

So last night I really made it a point to stay up late and get at least one card done, and I did but the picture stinks! I am going to work on cleaning out my camera pics and posting some good pics, these BB pics are killing me!
So here it is...
White card stock for the base, I got this red printed paper on the sale rack at HL (which by the way is having another great sale this week, 50% paper and lots of other goodies!) White chipboard letters that I love!
The flower thing was cut from the cricut, an asteric, and three circles that I ended up trimming down with some crazy edges scissors... I added the black for a punch, I thought it would be different... These pics are really horrible.
The trees were cut from the cricut, I popped up the two on either side with some pop-dots. I roughed up the edges of the circles on the flower and the red paper, then I used my water paint pen (black) and went around the edges of almost everything. What do you think?
And my question for the day... How many cards do you typically send out every Christmas?

Thanks for reading and... Happy Crafting! :)
