Christmas Merry


Hello Blogger Friends and a happy Wednesday to you. Well it had to happen. My granddaughter was coughing while she was here for her Christmas visit and now I am down with a cold.

It's just a runny nose and some minor body aches but enough to keep me from the gym today. I took a hot shower and just got right back in my lounging pajamas. Hope I am feeling well enough to go to pre-school tomorrow. Thursday is my day there.

I cut back to 1 day a week for January and February. Then in March I will move back up to 2 days. The winter months can be a bear for driving and I don't like driving in the snow or ice. We have another assistant so I do have some flexibility with my schedule.

Let's move onto my card for today. This is another I made for Christmas. I found an old Stampin'-Up card photo kit in my stash. I was initially going to get rid of it and then I opened it up to take a peek. I knew I wasn't going to send a photo card but there were also instructions to make a greeting card. I was able to make 12 cards fairly quick using this kit. I sent 60 handmade cards this year.

So today I am showing the different cards I made with the kit. The kit came with the card bases, the scalloped frame, the die cut holly branch and the red border trim. On the first card, I added a die cut merry word, stamped the sentiment and added some sequins.

That's my cards for today. I hope you aren't getting tired of seeing my Christmas cards. I have just a few more to show and then I will move on. So until next time.......God bless.
