One More Christmas Card...


I had some time to participate in the Teapot Tuesday Challenge at SCS this week. The goal was Christmas images with a touch of pink and our creations are going to bring some Christmas Cheer to someone who needs a little more Christmas Spirit. If you have never participated in this challenge, you should consider it (HERE is the link to this particular one). Every week the story is so fun, the pictures are inspirational, and there is always an optional destination to send your card (they go to bring love, encouragement, and cheer to someone). The group sent my MIL cards when she was in her last months, and I can't even express the joy it brought her. The cards that were sent were all beautiful and she kept them in a basket by her recliner. She told everyone that she had new friends from all over the world, and she would smile when she showed them to everyone. She even kept the envelopes so she could tell everyone what country or state or city they were from. Few things brought a smile to her face in that dark time, so I KNOW for sure this challenge is making a difference in the world.

I love the sentiment on this wonderful LilyPink Christmas Baubles image. Hope your holiday preparations are going smoothly and things are staying calm.

  4. I commented on your card at Split Coast and wanted to comment on it here...Great Design Nancy, and great card for the challenge. This has been my very favorite challenge. If I don't find time for any of the other challenges, I try very hard to find time for this one. My heart just goes out to the recipients of these challenges. They go through so much, so I always hope that my cards bring a little sunshine into their day. I know how happy it makes me when I get a card from someone in my mailbox...always nice to have something besides bills and junk mail...smile. Hope you are having a good week.
