You've Got Mail

One thing I love about the Christmas holidays is getting Christmas cards in the mail.  Often these are generic store bought cards with a nice message inside letting you know that they've thought of you during the holidays.  So Sweet!  Sometimes they are photo cards with a sweet family pic or cute kid picture on it sending smiles.  Love these!  And sometimes...if you're super lucky you get a handmade card in the mail.  LOVE LOVE these!  Maybe it's because I know what kind of thought and care goes into a handmade card that I appreciate these the most.  Sooooo a couple days ago I was the proud recipient of a handmade card all the way from out west in Edmonton, AB.  My friend, Carrie V sent me a beautiful card that I just have to share!

It's soo gorgeous it inspired me to use the same idea on a holiday card I made for my daughter's teacher.  I didn't have double sided Christmas paper so as per Carrie's suggestion I stamped on the white side to snaz it up on the inside of the cones and added some glitter to boot!  I'm submitting it for this weeks Simon Says Stamp Bingo Challenge where I used the top row of items.

Here is my version.  Her's hoping I'll get lucky this week!
