Snowy Christmas Card

Good day everyone! I hope you are well and enjoying this happy Friday.

Back in the day, I sent out handmade Christmas cards – that was about thirty years ago. I haven’t done it since and last year a friend who lives in El Paso told me in an email he always looked forward to my homemade Christmas cards. So, this year I decided to do one – and who knows, maybe two or three. But one will definitely go to him.

My apologies for the dark photos – we’ve had dreary weather most recently.

I finished a card last night (shown at top of post), though I’m still working on little paintings. It’s a snowy watercolor, with a background of odds and ends I had on hand which are glued to a piece of card stock tied with a raffia bow. I should paint more corrugated cardboard, as I’m running out of what’s in my stash. They’re always a nice touch to anything.

Thank you for stopping by Leisure Lane today and letting me share with you. Enjoy your visit, and feel free to stroll around the Lane.

Until next time, may happy days abound.

    Marianne – – Brrrrrr….your Christmas Card brings back many nice memories decades ago when everyone sent out Christmas Cards. I saved a few of the ones I would create and still put them on my Christmas Tree. Now with the internet, home-made cards have gone out like high-button shoes! Here in NJ it has been in the 30s and it is made colder by the high winds! Brrrrr. Merry Christmas!

      Thank you, Tom. Yes, I loved making my own cards, and would like to get back into making more. Everything old can be new again ;). Sounds cold in New Jersey – I do miss the snow. It can’t seem to get out of the 60s and 70s down here in Texas. But we are expecting a slight cold front in a couple of days, so I’m looking forward to that. In the meantime, I hope we see a white Christmas..I hope, I hope, I hope ♥
