A Homespun Christmas

Just checking in first to say thanks for your prayers for my mother-in-law and the family. Although Mom is currently holding her own--she's an amazing lady--the prognosis isn't good. We are providing hospice care and just taking things day-by-day. We are thankful for each day we have with her and try to remind ourselves that God never promised it would be easy. He did, however, promise to be with us and we're leaning on that promise.

Second, I had a few minutes today to actually try to make something and wanted to share it before too much more time slipped away. 

This is just a simple, homespun Christmas card. Most of the supplies are PaperTrey, except the patterned paper, which was from my stash. The cute doubled ended flag is a die from PaperTrey, too. I think it adds a fun touch for the sentiment, and when popped up on dimensionals, it adds a bit of texture. A few buttons and baker's twine, and another card is ready for the stash. 


  1. Missed your posts...and prayers were with you always (and will continue to be!). This card is NOT "simple"'s got all kinds of interesting going on...the plaid paper ties everything together and I love the the sentiment individual letters?

  2. Lovely Cathy. Glad you found time to post it. I always enjoy your cards
