I know I said I wasn't going to do holiday cards, but each time a beautiful handmade card made it's way into our home, I was slightly tortured (how's that for holiday spirit?). So I made a few. I used fabric scraps for trees and the trunks, and decorative gold thread stitched on as the "garland" (which my machine was not fond of, by the way), and then tacked on a kiddo picture on the inside. But apparently, I wasn't the only one with this idea! Both Steph and Amanda made some beautiful fabric tree cards as well. And bizarrely enough, I think I used fabric sent from each of these women on my cards. Which leads me to one conclusion: the fabric told us to do it. ;)
Now, getting them written and in the mailbox is a whole other feat unto itself that isn't likely to happen. Perhaps I'll just consider them a start on the 2006 holiday card stash.
Oh! And I want to wish a very merry sunny shiny happy birthday today to someone very special. :D
