Handmade Christmas Cards 2010

I enjoy making cards, but I just love getting handmade cards! This year I received 3 of them that I would like to share with you!

This one is from Lisa Padley, who is a CTMH representative here in Kamloops. She is featuring a challenge on her blog Moments Matter right now.

My sister Izzy always makes me handmade cards, and this one is hers.

This Christmas Eve we had an additional celebration in the family. My brother John got engaged to his sweetheart. She also enjoys cardmaking (yes, she's going to fit in very well!)

...and this is the card Janell made!!
 This Christmas my husband was very good to me! He bought me a Your Story/Cricut Expression bundle!!  YAY!! I have no idea how to use it, and I've been too busy with Christmas company, New Years, and tearing down the tree to even start the learning curve....but this week, for sure!! I've also downloaded SCAL and am going to download Inkscape once I know what I'm doing.

Have a wonderful week!



  1. Love the cards, Carmen! Thanks for doing the shout-out about mine. *blush* I love doing the homemade ones for friends and family.
