Christmas Cards

Yum

(from my friend Zoe in St Louis--a Performing Arts card with 3D jewels on it!)

I absolutely love Christmas cards. I love sending them and receiving them. I save them, too, to use in my scrapbooking and card making. Here are some of my favorites from 2008 (excluding photo cards, which are my all time favorites!)


(from my friend Tammy in California... this is a Carol Wilson card. It is a cut out card, a craft that has been lost lately)

The card below is a handmade card by my friend Linda. I didn't get many of these this year but I adore the paper selection and the sleigh stamp.


This card is from my friend Jenny in Arizona. It is a Carlton Card, with a real ribbon and 3D embellishment across the ribbon.


This card is so beautiful in person! It is from my friend Denise and is a Brother and Sister Card out of Oklahoma City. It is 3D all over.


This Lang card is from my friend Marion who lives in Maine. I love Lang's work and this artist, Susan Winget, is very good.


So for those of you who are considering stopping the Christmas card sending thing, please think of us who love them and cherish them and remember the love and thoughtfulness that goes into them!


PS The holes you see are from hanging the cards on a tree in our foyer. I love how the tree grows and grows as the season gets closer and closer to Christmas!

  5. Love the cards, I should have posted some of mine. Gives me an idea for next year. We went on a tour of MIZZOU recently with my daughter. Beautiful school and campus. My daughter did pick Truman though even though her father is a huge Tigers fan.
