Getting ready for Christmas...

I LOVE Christmas! I love the colors, the lights, the decorations. This is MY holiday, so much like Halloween is Barb's! :) First off though, I LOVE the reason for this season...the celebration of the birth of Jesus! What a great time of the year to remind us all what is really important.

Another of my favorite Christmas time activities is to send Christmas cards or pictures to friends and loved ones to let them know that we are thinking of them. Getting something handmade in the mail is so much fun!

Here are 2 of many, of my handmade cards to send this year!

The glitter strip is actually a piece of Wonder tape! I just cut it to fit, took the red backing off and sprinkled with glitter! SO much easier than glue!

Here is another one with the same layout....just a different background.


Super simple and fun cards for this time of year! Hope all is well! Have a great day!
