My daughter was watching me address all my Christmas cards yesterday and made the comment, "Are you giving us a Christmas card, Mom?" (referring to her and her two brothers who no longer live at home). I was ashamed to admit that I had just addressed her brothers cards, but had not made Carly one since she still lives at home. What a bad mom I am. I made her lots of tags to go on her gifts, but no actual card. I asked her if she wanted a card and she jokingly said yes, and she wants one that is "heartfelt", not funny. Oh how I wish I had the new Love Lives Here set from PTI. It would have been absolutely perfect for a "heartfelt" card. Since I don't have it, I made due with really putting a lot of home-made effort into her card. I stamped a music background onto Pinefeather paper with Vintage Cream ink. I used Vintage Cream felt to die-cut a Christmas Tree and stitched on it with green thread. I added some buttons for ornaments with glue dots. I cut a little border and actually used some of my beautiful PTI saddle-stitch Pinefeather ribbon. I cut a little tag and stamped the sentiment on it. Carly won't realize how many different elements it has on it, but it was definitely heartfelt. The inside is where I will totally make her cry. I wrote a little letter to her talking about all the wonderful Christmas memories I have of just her and I together. She probably has forgotten lots of them and I hope the letter will bring back some happy memories for her. I know they did for me. I am tearing up just thinking of it. Heartfelt.
