Wow I am cutting this one close! We have had a few busy days and thus I have not been spending much time crafting. But if there is one of the challenges I am currently taking part in THIS one I cannot miss!!!
For my Merry Monday card I chose to break into the vault of holiday dsp that I have. For some reason I have no trouble parting with regular dsp as it retires but I hold on to ALL of the holidays papers! Deep down I believe Christmas cards are my favourite to make.
So I went with The Merry Holiday dsp and colour theme: Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Old Olive, Garden Green and Very Vanilla. Hope you like!
I decided not to colour in the pressies the little elf was holding onto as a personal stab at commercialism at Christmas time lol We are trying to make sure Ethan & Baby Kew grow up with a healthy understanding that Christmas is not about receieving but about giving to others! Last year Ethan and I made 24 cupcakes for a local homeless shelter and he picked two Angel's (children in the comminuty in need) to buy a Christmas present for and this year we plan to make 36 cupcakes and pick three Angel's!
Thanks for stoppin' by!
