The Holidays are Coming...

While summer is still here I'm not really ready to think about Christmas, but it is coming.  The shopping centers are thick with Thanksgiving and Halloween and I'm finding sprinkles of Christmas everywhere too.  I hoped to get myself in to the holiday mood early this year but it hasn't worked so far.

Nonetheless, I did have a cardmaking day for the Southern Ontario Animal Rescue (SOAR).  Each participant had to create two handmade cards for the SOAR.  I will deliver them to SOAR and hope they find them useful at holiday time.

So, the next few posts will be pictures of what was made.  I hope it will help to get you in the Holiday mood and maybe give you a few ideas!

This cards were made by a co-worker of mine, Debbie H.  The cards here were made from our Christmas card workshop from last year.  Debbie put her own spin on each design.

I just adored the chocolate mint paper line from SEI.  The foiled swirls were so vivid against the chocolate-striped background.  I called the design on the right the "milk hot chocolate" design.  It's hard to see in the photo, but the design on the left has sparkles applied to the snowflakes.

Hope you enjoyed looking!


  1. Pretty cards by your co-worker! I can't wait to see the ones you made for SOAR.
