Joy

Hi everybody. Welcome to day 9 of the 25 Days of Christmas. Today and tomorrow I will be showing you my holiday Christmas cards that I sent to family and close friends. I decided that this year no more buying photo cards, that I could make my own. I used this fun retro SU paper and used my cricut to cut out the rectangle in the middle - this made it a whole lot faster, trust me. I used riding hood red cardstock for the base. I then used my ornament stamp set and stamped in riding hood red and used the ornament punch and tied a black ribbon around the top of the ornament. Very simple but it still took awhile. When I started to address all of my cards, I realized that I would about 7 cards short but out of paper so tomorrow I will be sharing my second version of the photo card! Have you wrapped your presents yet? I started but I still got a ways to go! Happy day!

Cute photo of your kids! I loved your treat box... but then, it is red - and that's usually all it takes.
