Holiday greetings

I love holiday cards...giving and receving them...and I enjoy looking at the different designs each season. (All part of my paper fixation...mmm...pretty paper...) My favorites usually are letterpressed, but the cost can be prohibitive. So this year I decided to make my cards.

Holiday greetings
Green square cards

The beautiful rubber stamped creations at Paper Source are always so enticing, but my stamping efforts never turn out so lovely. Ah well, there is always next year, I suppose...

The cards were sealed with stickers and mailed in brown square envelopes... don't forget the extra postage!

It was a delight to receive one. I could tell a lot of work had gone into it. Right down to the seal on the envelope.

Carol, for a busy teacher, homeowner, beagle wrangler, you amaze me with your ability to
bake
sew
knit
and all other things craftish.
Happy Christmas, Celadon Cupcake friends!
