Hello crafty friends.
My 25 year old daughter, Alex, told me last night she wanted to make her own Christmas cards with my help. She wanted to make them all right then. Yikes! And.... she wanted them to look like they came from the 1970s! Double Yikes!! I was pretty skeptical about getting them done in 3 hours - but we did!
She actually helped, and she was so creative. I was proud of her, and I had the best time!
She found all the stuff in my paper and flower stash so we used up a lot of things that probably would have ended thrown away or donated. I was thrilled.
When she showed me the picture she wanted to use, I could see why she picked 1970s. She dressed in bell bottoms for the picture and it does look 1970-ish. By the way, she just moved and she did her house in 1970s theme too. Whenever I visit, I feel like I stepped back to High School. LOL!
After we were done, I asked her which one was her favorite. She picked this lace one she made.
Fun memories - even her 5 year old son helped. Her cards remind me of the cards my Mother made. I could just feel my Mom smiling down. Maybe this is the start of a love of card-making in my daughter. One can only hope!
Thanks for visiting.
