For the past few weeks, I've had this crazy notion that I wanted to hand paint all of my Christmas cards. I couldn't get the idea of snow-covered spruce trees out of my head, and so I headed over to Youtube for a quick tutorial. I had to improvise a little, as I don't own professional supplies, and I've now got 15 little pictures done, ready to matte and place onto cards. I can't tell you how much fun I am having painting these little trees,
I've handmade cards in the past. One year, I drew a few different snowman scenes, then I made several copies and coloured them to adorn my cards. I've used my stamp collection to make sets, and I have a Cricut machine which was fun to use one year.
In the past few years, I have truly enjoyed the process of making and writing out these cards, then shipping them off. I would love to add more of my blog friends to that mailing list, so please send me an email with your address if you enjoy receiving Christmas cards.
