Christmas is for giving

Happy Sunday everyone.  Hope you are having a great day.  I worked for 4 hours but am home now, to enjoy the great sunshine today. 

I got a wonderful idea from Jennifer McGuire.  She is collecting Christmas card to be distributed to Retirement homes.  This gave me an idea.  One of my daughters teachers has been talking to them about giving back, and making a difference.  She and her friends will help me make some cards, and I will get her and her brothers class at school to sign and write in the cards.  Then taking them to the retirement here in town.  Thanks Jennifer for the idea.  Christmas is a depressing time of year, and to have no family to come visit you.  Hopefully the cards will bring a few smiles at such a joyous time of year.

On to my card.  I have had fun with this polariod frame from Stamping Bella.  The image is a Penny Black.  I colored the pinecone with pencil crayons and added some crystal stickles to make it look like snow on it.  The bows were drawn on with gellyroll sakura dk green pen. 

Happy crafting

OH, I love the simplicity of this card. Less is more is definatley perfect with this image. The blue background is perfect and the stickles add a wonderful touch.
