25 Days of Christmas Cards: Day 6

Hi Everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours was great! We took a little family trip up to Washington DC to see “A Christmas Carol” at Ford’s Theater. It was so good and we all enjoyed it very much! Then the next day we visited a couple of museums before heading back home. Just a quick trip; but well worth the family time together. I thought I would share a family photo of us at the theater!

Ok, well back to our regularly scheduled program! Day 6 of the 25 Days of Christmas cards. This is another card featuring a cross-stitch background. I saw this color combination on pinterest and I really liked it; but I wasn’t quite sure if I was going to like it with the thread. I really had to think about how I wanted to alternate the colors. I was rather pleased with the end result, however! I wanted to keep the focus on the background, so I just did a simple silver embossed sentiment in the center.

That is all for today, my friends! I am off to start making cookie dough for the CRAZY amount of holiday baking I’m doing this holiday season! I mean, seriously I try not to think too much about how much I have to do because it kinda panics me when I do!

Have a fabulous day, everyone; and I’ll see you all again tomorrow.
