Ghost from Christmas Past

I can't believe how close Christmas is!  I have so many cards I need to be making, but I get so distracted by fun challenges and other ideas in my head.  Here is a card I mass produced a couple of years ago.  My husband was out of the country for a few months including Christmas, and I just wasn't very motivated to get my cards done.  So I can up with a simple but cute layout, used my Cricut to mass produce, had a friend come over to help adhere all the layers (I probably still owe her!) and voila 100 cards were made!  Being a military family that moves around every three to four years we make a lot of great friends (so I need a lot of cards); however, we also make a lot of friends that are like us and move around a lot!  Many of them, the only way we can keep up with, is the annual Christmas card and family letter.  We so look forward to hearing from everyone and know that they want to know what is going on in our lives as well. 

Anyway, I share all that because here I am with Christmas closing in and I don't have my cards done!! YIKES!!  So I may have to figure out something similar to this one:  quick, easy, and can be mass produced in a hurry!  And I thought it might give someone an idea for last minute Christmas cards! 

I hope you like it in its simplicity!
