Lauren's Christmas card

This is my second post today... If you would like to see my posts for She's a Sassy Lady and Sketches in Thyme..... click HERE!


I was busy in my office the other day (working on Christmas cards that should have been done weeks ago) when Lauren walked in and decided she wanted to make some cards for her friends too. She got busy right away... cutting, sewing, glueing, writing.... and here is one of the cards she made....
She hand cut all the candy canes from patterned paper and then layered them on the green to create her own background. She made sure she had plenty of glitter because she wanted to post it on my blog so she could enter her card into the Frosted Designs glitter challenge!! How cute is that?! I love that she sewed the ribbon all the way around her card! And I thought her sentiment was very clever! (But I'm a mom... what else am I going to say?! I think she is brilliant!! heehee!!)

So... If you get a chance, please leave her a little blog love! I'm sure a little encouragement from all of you would totally make her day!! Thanks for stopping by!
