Decorating for Christmas

     A couple of days ago I told you that I had been working on Christmas cards all weekend and here is the first of them.  I have two additional reasons for needing lots of additional cards this year and both involve a local craft fair which we will be holding as a fund raiser in support of our local "Relay for Life."  I just committed to doing this so all the cards I'll need are in addition to the ones for family and for donating to our local senior center.

     Not only will I have a booth to sell Christmas cards but I'll be doing a Make and Take for kids with Christmas card kits which I'm putting together myself.  Those will be fairly CAS, mostly die cuts or black and white/sepia Vintage images and mats/frames of holiday colored CS, made with really simple die cuts.

     But today's card has a Sarah Kay image and is actually going to be used for family, probably my great-granddaughter.  :-D


     I adore this darling girl getting ready to make her house warm and inviting for the holidays.  She's cut with an Unbranded die.  Both papers are scraps which originally came from a Recollections stack.   The sentiment came from QKR Stampede.  The sparkly gold ribbon was in my stash and I dyed a hand-made, white, satin bow with my ProMarkers.
