First Christmas post of 2017!




Too early to talk about Christmas cards you say?  Sure if you are going to buy factory made cards.  But......homemade cards you really need to at least start thinking about it now.  Here is one of my first group of cards:


Ten cards to start!  Yea me!  I saw the making of this card on RG Presents.  This is what persuaded me to buy the bundle (Poinsettia Baskets Bundle #BD-0296) in our new Holiday Catalog!  

Here is a closer view of both the outside and inside of my cards:


Wow, I love this card!  Homemade does take more time definitely!  But it is so fun to make and is filled with a lot of heart into each project.  It's like sending a little gift to all our family and friends!
