Cards are such an important way to share friendship at any time and any occasion during the year. But especially at Christmas.
I can't even begin to express how much it means to my husband and I to receive them. It's so exciting to reach into the mail box and discover some special envelopes. These cards bring sunshine and smiles to our day, and just knowing someone has taken the time out of their busy lives to acknowledge us and share some of their seasonal updates makes us happy!
I must admit that at this time of year there are some cards that stand out from the rest and I pick them up over and over. They are the hand crafted cards and today I want to share seven such cards. I was amazed and thrilled with the love that went into each and every one of these cards.
Card One by Betty Lee:
|I really loved this card stamped with the Reindeer from the Stampin' Up Cookie Cutter Christmas stamp set. Betty Lee has punched out the cute hat in from Red and Dazzling diamonds glimmer paper and the Stampin' Up! Jolly Hat Builder Punch. What a great card Betty Lee! Loving it!|
Card Two By Debby Evoy:
|Isn't this a gorgeous combination of the Stampin' Up! Starlight Thinlet Dies and Candy Cane Lane Designer Washi Tape. I totally loved the design! Great way to use the Washi tape Deb! This card was made by mygood friend and fellow demonstrator Debby Evoy from Abbotsford BC. |
Card Three By Elise:
|My sweet and talented sister-in-law Elise from Vancouver, BC made this super cute card with fun foam stickers. We loved it Elise. Beautiful inside and out, just like you! |
Card Four by Cheryl LeFore:
Every year I receive an amazingly beautiful card from the very talented Cheryl LeFore, a Stampin' Up Demo from Laquinta California. Cheryl was Stampin' Ups! Artisan of the year in 2012, so it's such a thrill to get one of her creations. I love all the elements Cheryl's used on this card and the background snowflake stamping. Cheryl, thanks for thinking of me!
Card Five by Heather:
|My sister Heather's been participating in the Merry Monday Christmas Card challenges and the Watercooler Wednesday weekly challenges during 2016 and has made some simply amazing cards. This very cute card features some happy little "snowbirds" and snowflakes inside and out. It brought a smile to my face Heather. Super cute! Thanks so much!|
Card Six by Ethel DeTemple:
|I'm totally loving this Christmas card made with the Jar of Love Stamp Set and Dies set and Cookie Cutter Christmas Designer Series Paper. Ethel you did a fabulous job with this shaker. It's so perfect! Thanks so much for this fun card! My good friend Ethel is also a Stampin' Up! demonstrator in the Surrey Fleetwood area of BC.|
Well, there you have it for today. Beautiful and much appreciated cards from friends that I love! Thanks everyone for making my Christmas memories in 2016!
