Christmas Cards Received

I love cards! So receiving all of the beautiful cards in my mailbox each day was a little bit of heaven for me. I have to admit that picture cards are my personal favorite. And it seems that each year we get more and more photo cards. (Keep 'em coming I say!)

A favorite photo card was from my son and his new bride. They were richly blessed to have the best wedding photos I have ever seen and the rights to use them however they desired. (Photographers who are close relatives are indeed a blessing!) Megan created her photo cards on Snapfish and I LOVE the color scheme. I believe they would match SU's Wintergreen paper to a tee!










Of course, I have to show you my beautiful Godchildren. Best friend, Peggy had her cards made with her Christmas pics from JC Penneys! Aren't they the cutest kids?



Our family received 12 picture cards in total, 25 regular cards and 8 stamped. I've shown you 3 of those, so here are the other 5.


This first card came from Rachel and featured my favorite color- Soft Sky! I love the simplicity, but depth she included with the embossed snowflakes where paper and textured cardstock meet. Very pretty, Rachel! Thank you for thinking of me!





Next comes this fabulous creation from my super star blog friend Maria Bell. She also sent a little magical cocoa packet. And I thought it was SO cool. I think I pulled the cocoa up by the satiny ribbon a dozen times or more. Quite spectacular, Maria! Thank you, friend!

My close and personal friend Chrystal sent this simple vanilla and red card. I enjoyed it so much since we are so blessed to watch the beautiful cardinals in our back yard each day. The card was perfect for us.






Rita sent a sparkly "Sprinkles" card which I adore! Isn't it cute? Thank YOU, Rita!

And last, but certainly NOT least is this spectacular masterpiece by the one and only Rose Ann. She used a CHF Thomas Kinkade stamp in Close to Cocoa. I am in awe, Rose Ann! Your cards are SO amazingly cool in real life! Thank you!
I love cards!! I hope a few more trickle in. That will be fine by me. I love them all!
Have a great weekend and hug someone you love today!
