Christmas Wishes!

Merry Christmas!

Hope all is well with you!  I'm still doing some Christmas cards.  This one is for a friend who collects bears.  I just happened to come upon a tag with a bear on it and knew it would be for my friend, Peggi!  I added some red glitter to the berries and a few gems.  Ribbon, cord, and sewing to finish off the card. 

We are off to my mother-in-law's tomorrow for the Christmas get-together.  I finished baking more sugar cookies this afternoon.  My husband told me enough with the goodies.  He said, "I've gained two pounds!"  But, I love baking at this time of year.  Anyways, I hope your holiday preparations are going well.  I still have a little shopping to do.  Take care and thanks so much for stopping by today, hugs!!:-))

  4. What a sweet card, Maria! That little tag is just perfect for your friend. Love the paper you used and the traditional color combo, and your zig zag framework is just fabulous!

  5. oh my! isn't that bear so sweet! wonderful card, Maria! love the tag and sentiment!

  6. I usually bake much more than I am this year. Just running out of time and energy. I'm feeling mostly better from surgery, but there's still a limit to my energy, that's for sure.

    This bear card is SO sweet. I love those elegant papers you used too. Merry Christmas, Maria!

  7. How pretty and adorable at the same time with your cute bear! I like your stitching around too!
