Late Christmas Card Sharing

Hi friends,
It's been awhile since I last posted here.  December has been a difficult month.  As you know, I have been having back problems.  However, other things became more important.  My mother-in-law's health has been on a decline this past year and took a much more turn for the worse this month.  We buried her the week before Christmas. 

Also, our computer crashed.  We did purchase a new one and I am trying to learn how to use it.  As you may be aware, I am not computer saavy.  I did manage to make some a card and a tag before this all happened and here they are.

For this card as well as the tag, I used papers from Maja Design's new Christmas Season collection.  I love the colors used for the papers.  I am trying to use items in my stash so the bits of lace, diecut holly leaves, bells, gems, and seam binding all came together on this card.  I also tucked some cheesecloth under the layers.

I do love the vintage image on the card and the contrasting layers.

Last but not least is this tag.  I loved the image of the lady sitting atop the hat boxes.  I fussy cut her from the paper and added foam squares for dimension.  Once again, all the items used to decorate the card are from my stash or gifted from a dear friend. 

Well, that's all for now.  I wish you all a belated Merry Christmas and hope that you are having a wonderful holiday week.  Happy New Year!  And thanks for stopping by!
