As Christmas fast approaches, I’m in the studio humming along to holiday tunes, crafting up a final batch of cards, and at the same time remembering good times spent with my family last year. Last year, my niece and I made sugar cookies with royal icing and I recall those pretties got eaten up lickety split by the boys. This year, hubby and I are staying put – his father isn’t doing too well, so we will stay in California and have a quiet holiday. While I am sad that I won’t be seeing the kids, on the up side, I have been able to get a number of things done without any of the stress that’s normally a part of having to travel etc. If I can get it together, I may even give a room or two a fresh coat of paint. Reminiscing about the holiday cookie making, I was inspired to make a set of cards for the kids. I think the results were too cute!
I hope you’ll enjoy the video, and if you feel so inclined, please share with your friends. I am about 900 short from reaching my year end goal of 10,000 subscribers. It would really make my year to get there, and your help would be much appreciated!
Gingerbread cookies, sugar cookies with royal icing, candy canes and sweets galore.
The great thing about these cards is that the bulk of the design came from one Sizzix “My Christmas Wish” Set (see below) which includes several embossing folders and a bonus Sizzlit. The rest really was pulled from my stash of buttons and fibers.
FYI, this set is not a new release, and I’m not sure when it will be retired. So if you like it as much as I do, you might want to pick one up before they are all gone!
