The Reason for the Season Cont.......Kind of

I know that the reason for the season is not the gifts we give and the cards we send.  But if it weren't for the season - we wouldn't be sending cards of giving gifts.  So in honor of the reason for the season - I am sharing 2 cards that I made.

I am still on the quest for the perfect Christmas card.  I have some ideas - so there might be a variety of cards this year.

Here are 2 simple cards that I created:

This first card features a corner of a sheet of 12 X 12 paper from a paper stack by Reflections.

I just cut out the corner.  I also traced the Merry Christmas with my glitter pen.  This is a card for someone on my Christmas card list who might not appreciate a more sophisticated hand made card.  In other words, they'll trash it when they're taking down the tree.  You have them on your list, too.  You know you do.  Don't judge me.  LOL


This card is kind of a CAS of a balloon card that I saw on Doublestick Heaven.  I used the same technique on the Christmas lights and used some background paper from the same paper stack as above.  This card is really growing on me.  Maybe this is the one!  Here is the actual post where I got the idea:  DieCember Blog Hop.

Thank you for stopping by the blog today.  Stay tuned tomorrow for WOYWW.  I might even have created a project with the real theme for this week.

Have a great day and be inspired.

2 Corinthians 12:9  But he said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.'  Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
