Christmas Cards

The cards have gone out so I will share the pictures. They were a good idea until I started working on them. I only made 20 and that was plenty.
There is a red and grey card and a blue and white card. I love snowflakes so that is what I usually do on our cards.

Easy Teacher Gifts

I made note cards for one of the teachers. I hope she likes them. I know she sends personal notes. I stamped the background with versamark and let that dry. That just made a watermark. I used the same patterned paper on everything. I also used her first initial. The card holder is a 6x6 page protector. I cut off the side that had the holes. I also cut a sheet of paper about 6x9 inches and I fold it over to make an envelope. I added more of the same patterned paper. There are 6 cards and envelopes inside.

OWH (Operation Write Home)

Operation Write Home is a great organization that gets crafters to make cards for troops that are away from their families. I love the idea behind it and since I am a crafter I try to make as many cards as I can for them. I am sure you will see me mention them often. Here are a few cards I have made for the troops. If you are about to help they take any and all handmade cards or cash donations to help with shipping costs.
