A Few 2021 Christmas Cards

Hi everyone, hope you are having a good 2022 so far. Hard to believe the last time I posted was in November already. Time does fly. My header card is a napkin card. Glue the card stock then lay one layer of napkin on and smooth it like you would wallpaper. You can add your embellishments or whatever you desire.

The top card, the tree, was embossed, then I added little gems for ornaments and white speckles for the star and garland.

The "silent night" card was left over die cuts of the sleigh and trees. Just added gems, snowflakes and stickers. Nothing fancy, just using up what I had laying around.
Now both these cards were a lot of fun to make, I made a lot of these cards, mailing to friends and family. So here again, glue the card stock the size you want. Then lay ribbon on top of the glued card stock, any way you like. After completely dried, I used different embossing folders and then added sticker snowflakes and ornaments.
I can't really say that I enjoyed Christmas and New Year's, it was pretty lonely since JP died. Hard to believe he is gone 5 months now. I have my brother and sister-in-law from Chicago calling once a week and I give a review of what happened the past week and how things are going. I have two other people that call once or twice a week just to talk. So, that part is not lonely. My next store neighbor shovels my snow when it snows, I talk to him every now and then.

As for my future plans, I am not sure what will happen. I would like to stay in my home for as long as I can. Hopefully for at least another year, that will give me time to down-size and get rid of stuff. After 30 years of accumulation...there is a lot of stuff to go through.

This covid (crap) is too much to take, somehow, I am glad JP did not have to witness and experience what is going on right now. It is very sad to watch this USA go down the tubes because so many people want control and desire to live under socialism and communism. They have been led astray, thinking socialism and communism is better than capitalism. One thing I know, God has complete control of all that is happening and going on. Someday soon every knee shall bow, and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

So, you all have a great day and keep looking up, better days are coming. Cheers ~ Louise
