Christmas cards

What a great couple weeks it has been.  November is a hectic month in this house.  Marianne's birthday was the first weekend and 3 of the kids in my daycare as well.  We had cake at least once a week this month!!!  Zoé loves to help me bake them.  I had an Epicure party where Zoé won the bingo draw and purchased the kid's bundle, complete with apron and kid's size utensiles.  She is so cute! Today, we made a marble cake for Emily's birthday with...... Maple Syrup boiled frosting!!!  it was sooo tasty! 
Besides parties, I am so proud of a decision to clean my scraproom and put some of my stuff in a facebook auction.  It all started when my husband decided that he could not do Movember this year.  I though maybe I could raise a little money by selling some of my scrapbooking overstock and giving 50% to the Tree of Hope campaign.  I had alot more stuff than I had originaly imagined, so I kept placing pictures on my facebook page and taking bids.  So far I've raised close to 200$ and I still have lots of auctions still open.  It's a win/win/win/win situation : I get a cleaner scrapbooking room, Someone gets to make use of great products that I won't use, Money is going to charity and I get to have a little money for some Christmas shopping!  I'll post my grand total once all the auctions are closed after Dec 1st.   To take a look just visit my Facebook group.
This week I've been busy with LCOM online card crop.  I've completed all the card challenges so far, but might to revisit a few in order to finish all my Christmas cards.  Just hope I remember to mail them this year :)  Here are some of the cards I made this week :
