An idea a day... #5

Handmade Christmas Cards
I bought this cute cat and dog fabric just because it was cute.
Yesterday, as I was looking at my Christmas fabric stash I had an idea.
And it worked!!
Just cut, sew, and add a ribbon.
They're ready for a personalized Christmas greeting inside.

I have many more cut out... will sew them this morning.

I made these cards earlier.
They're just made from my scrapbook supplies.
I don't like repetition... so they're all different.
Actually, I have a whole basket full of them... as our card list seems to grow each year.

I hope you're all enjoying this Christmas prep time.
My feeling of panic is gone and I've slipped into an excitement mode.
When stressed remember...
"A good laugh is sunshine in a house".

Love the fabric cards! We 'bugged' out because we had a power outage for a few hours.

I went to Hobby Lobby and A.C. moor (same family as Michael's!) Lots of fun treasures to play with!!

What a wonderful idea! My Christmas cards all look the same and aren't nearly as creative as this.
