Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas Cards

I'm completely disillusioned with the whole christmas card thing.  I have been making cards for so many years, I put a lot of time and effort into them, and I rarely get any back in return.  The excuses are usually "I have no time".  Because You know it takes  alot of effort for people to sign a name to a premade card they bought at some cheap dollar store, stick a stamp on it, write an address and walk to a mail box.  But people always say "I love getting your cards".  So I guess its okay for me to spend hours making cards cause I have the time.
Anyway so since that is the response I usually get  I decided not to make cards this year for most people.  I've made cards for the people my kids and I want to thank, like their teachers.  I will make the odd card here and there for friends, but not even close to as many as I normally make.
The first three cards below are cards my two kids made for their cousins.  I especially love the reindeer card.  The others are the thank you christmas cards for teachers.
