Hi, Everyone,

With December well underway, the holiday cards have begun to arrive.  I received the most beautiful Christmas card I have every received from my friend Gisèle.  I met Gisèle on an online scrapbooking website called Bella Creations.  This card is truly a work of art, and I am so touched to be remembered in this very special way by Gisèle.  Thank you, my friend!

First, even before opening the card, I was greeted by this gorgeous handmade envelope:

Next, the front of the card.  If you look behind the image, you will see a tag poking out--that is a personal greeting to me!

And, finally, the backside:

This beautiful card will be a cherished decoration each year from now on.  Thank you, my friend, for making me feel so very special!

So glad you stopped by my blog today.  Leave a comment so I will know you were here....comments make me feel special, too!!




  1. What a stunning card you receive Kay, it has so many wonderful elements to it. I can see why you would cherish it and want to display it each year.

    I am so glad to have you back on the Design Team for Let's Scrap. I look forward to working with you over the next 4 months.

  2. Need to definitely send cards like that to someone who appreciates the work & love thats put into it! What a special friend. It's truly a beautiful card.

  3. This is beautiful. I love the vintage look and all the textures. I need to get in the habit of making and sending cards out.

  5. The most common sentence in a Christmas card is “Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year” but it is okay to be a bit more creative when you write you greeting.
