De-Light-ful Christmas !

     I love everything about the Christmas holiday - making cards, planning menus, wrapping gifts, making personalized tags for them, decorating... hmmm, maybe not the decorating part so much, at least not when it comes to lights on the tree.  :-(  I think this poor zebra agrees with me on that one!


     The image is from Sasayaki Glitter's Progressive challenge on Facebook. I colored with my ProMarkers and cut the image with a die from Cheery Lynn.  The striped paper is embossed and glittered, and the red snowflake ribbon was in my stash.  The bow is one of those I sew together by the dozens to have ready as needed and I dyed it red with a ProMarker.

     The bow is the only real embellishment because I wanted a masculine Christmas card.  I have many more guys in my family than gals so 'guy cards' are kind of necessary.  :-D

     Does it feel like Monday today?  Don't concern yourself - it IS Tuesday.  Our internal clocks are just disarranged because of the holiday yesterday.   However, because there's always a chance of serious mental illness due to internal clock disarray, I suggest calling in sick and taking the day to craft and create.  Those two things, along with lots of laughter, are the best medicine for that insidious illness.  :-D  Happy Crafting.  NanaConnie
