"Card?," you ask. Well, naturally I have a card. It's a Christmas card. And I'm funny about Christmas cards. I stopped sending them after about the 12th grandchild was born. The postage got to be ridiculous, as we sent out what seemed to me to be 500 cards. And I like to keep things personal - I'd add a note in the card for each and every person/family. Waaaay too much time. I did try just signing our names, but it just didn't feel right. DH started doing a Christmas letter. Good idea, but that also, got to be waaaay too wordy. And postage kept going up (and up). So one year, I dusted off my hands and said "no more." It's been at least 8 grandchildren ago. Maybe one of these years I'll start up again. "But why are you making Christmas cards," you may ask, "if you don't send them?" DH still sends out a few to colleagues and special people. So dear friends, please don't be offended if you don't get a card from me. I promise that I'm thinking of you and praying for you in this Holy season, and always.
And now to the card I've made... It's for CASology. Had a small ping, and went with it. Here's the cue-card:
And my CAS take on it:
A big thank you to dear sweet Anita for the amazing linen-textured paper that frames my card. The branch is a NBUS from Memory Box, and the ornament is a cut file from Silhouette. Both the branch and ornament papers were out of my scrapbox. Michaels white base. There's a sentiment on the inside. I didn't want to take away from the simplicity of the design with anything else. I think it speaks of Christmas well enough on its own. And now I'm off to call the birthday boy. Happy dances everyone.
