Okay, so the only reason I’m posting these cards is to share them with a friend of mine in Tennessee who refuses to join Facebook, AND my flicker account is taking ages to upload, so I figured this was the best way to share the photos with her. However, if you’re not “my friend from Tennessee,” and landed here anyway from my home site, NOTE TO SELF: Daily Reminders from God, I hope you like the cards I made this year for friends and family.
To start with, after my mother died, I discovered that my mom also loved to make cards. When I was going through all of her colored papers, I found two stamped, embossed Christmas images. I wanted to do something creative with them, and felt that “collaborating” on a Christmas card was a unique idea. It was a way to still share Christmas together and share something we both loved doing—yet never knew about each other. So this card is something I made with the image I found. I cut it out and colored it, and then created a card around it.
Miss you so!
I wrote a letter to my mother in the inside and kept it for myself. The other image was used for another card I gave to my son who was very close to my mom.
The rest of these cards were sent out to friends and family using my new Cricut Mini—which I love! However, I hate my camera. It takes TERRIBLE pictures, so excuse the glares, blurriness and bad lighting.
This is by far my favorite. It’s Tavin’s thumbprints as Christmas lights!
I ADORE this card! So simple and elegant!
