Today has been a very long day with my other business (Longaberger Baskets & Pottery), so I have not been able to post until now.  Sorry!

I have had many requests from readers wanting to purchase my tutorials for my Christmas Punch Class.  Due to a jam-packed schedule right now, I don't feel I have time to do complete pictorial tutorials that I feel I would need to do to have people pay me for them before it would be too late for Christmas Classes or Cards.

For now, I will just post the "recipes" for my cards this week with a picture of the punches used and limited directions.  I hope that is enough now to help you create your own punch cards!  In the future, I will try to occasionally do projects with full tutorials that I can offer to my readers and customers for purchase. However, I will still share most of my creations for free as I have been doing.

This card was mostly designed by my daughter, Jenni.  I am making 12 of these for a swap Tuesday night and as I am 300 punches into it, I am beginning to think I am insane!  :o)  I hope you enjoy it!
