A Handmade Christmas

Now that my Christmas Cards have all been mailed, I can share with you the three designs that I chose for my cards this year.

The first one was something that I adapted from one I had seen while surfing the internet. Simple and classy, I couldn't resist ordering the supplies needed to make them.
