Merry Christmas

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with people they love. I wish there was more peace and joy in the world. Real happiness that comes from within.

Here are some cards I did over the holidays.  They were requests from a friend at work. She asked for bigger cards that my usual so these are 5 x 7

The die of the lamp is by Sizzix.  The background is also a Sizzix embossing folder. My friend Maria got it earlier this holiday season and share some die cuts but I was able to get my own at JoAnn's in the clearance area.  I printing the words using the Stampin Up digital program, My Design Studio. 

The paper came from a pad, I love the nontraditional colors. I got the pad after Christmas last year and haven't seen it again. I think I got it at JoAnns. The stamp of a poinsettia is by Stampin Up. 

This is a digital print set from CraftUPrint. com.

55 Christmas Cards for the Veteran's Home

I organized a service project at my office for the locale Veteran's Home. We did 55 Cards and they have hundreds of signatures. They are great ideas for simple cards. Some are the maker's first time at making a card.  Here are a few of my favorites:

This card was hand drawn by Brent Chase.  He borrowed someone's hairspray to seal it. Isn't it wonderful?!

The words on this were die cuts I got long ago from a friend on JustCards.
