This is the last of the Christmas cards for 2011. We had a two week break in making cards for our Inventory Reduction Challenge. Sure seems like a lot longer. I have been very busy trying to finish up my Christmas cards and December birthday cards. I also have a new baby boy card to get done too. If I wait just a little longer I can do one for his first steps or maybe first day at kindergarten. His birthday was October 12 - the same as my daughter.
Our Inventory Reduction Challenge this week is to use charms on the card. I had to think about what I wanted to do for a long time - nearly all of the two week break :C
I needed a special Christmas card for our mail carrier, Todd. He is just an angel bringing me all my stamping boxes and right to the deck steps if the box won't fit in the mailbox.
Here is what I finally came up with for him.
Looks like Santa Todd has lots of mail to get delivered before the big day!!
The upper half of the inside has a poinsettia and the Peppermint. The charm attached to the ribbon says "Ho, ho, ho" on it. I couldn't find one that said "Bah Humbug!".
He looks like he's thinking about all the work he did to get all those Christmas cards and parcels delivered on time. And now there are lots of things under his Christmas tree.
WOW! Is his tree ever decked all out! Just look at all those ornaments. The star on the top is a brad. That gold bead garland is so pretty. There's a snowflake, a candy cane and holly berries and leaves. The red balls are some beads I came across in a box of stuff given to me by a friend. The small red and green boxes are about 1/2 inch square and really difficult to get to stay put!
I wonder who the sled is for - Todd seems just a bit old for it! Or maybe Santa Todd let him keep it for a day or two until he has time to rest up. He does look a bit tired.
I'm so glad you took time out to stop by for a minute. Hope you enjoyed it.
Now please be sure to stop by my team mates' blogs and see what charming things they have done!
