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.

“There Really Is No Place Like Home” Card

Begin with a pretty envelope from a past greeting card, scrap paper, an old road map, and…

Hello, everyone, and welcome to Leisure Lane.  I’d like to share my latest decorated card.  I began with some scraps, and ended with:

this fun and cheery card.

I, also, had an extra envelope which matches and gives plenty of room for a little bubble wrap in front of the card for protection, if I decide to mail it to someone.

I wrote the verse on paper, which I added to the inside of the card.  The stamp added a nice touch.  I have a few really nice ideas for this verse, vintage pictures of cottages and such, but the printer is out of colored ink, so, I’ll just have to be patient.  In the meantime, it’s nice to know butterflies, the free-spirits they are, roaming here and there, call each flower their home.

Have a wonderful weekend, and…Until next time, may happy days abound!
