Altered Christmas Cards

 These are the few Christmas Cards I altered the last couple of weeks.  Much too late to get them sent out to family or friends this year, but I will have a head start for next season.  Quite simple in the construction, but, fun.  The green one and the one with the snowman background and button ornaments are my favorites.  I had a hard time getting "into" creating for Christmas this year.  I'm still stuck in the Halloween "mode" !!  Merry Christmas, everyone !!

Grapevine Wreath

My awesome grand-daughter made this grapevine wreath for me when when she cut her vines back this month.  I have a "bin" of Christmas ephemera out  in the garage - you know, those things that you think you "might need" - someday !!  Sure enough, I found just the right things to add to the wreath and hung it on my front door.   The poinsettias and pine cones are a candle ring that was perfect to use.  The little Santa Claus figure -- I have no idea where he came from, but, a little hot glue came in handy there.  A large zip lock bag of Christmas themed ribbon unearthed lots of red stuff to make a fluffy bow.  Zip ties added to the back of the wreath made good hangers.  YES, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus !!!
