Samantha's Christmas Card



This is the Christmas card that I made for Samantha. She loves the color yellow and Riley. Of course I had no problem finding a cute Riley image for her card, but finding yellow in Christmas paper was a little harder. I found the yellow bell paper in the same pack of paper from Cosmo Cricket that my pink card came from. Samantha keeps up with the Riley releases, so I knew she would recognize this Elf Riley as one of the new ones from the last release. She hasn't even had a chance to play with these yet either. She was very happy with her card and loved seeing yellow on her Christmas card.

I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Year. We normally stay in, in part because I have a hard time staying awake past 10:30! This year another couple had invited us over for dinner and a game night. It was still pretty low key, but we had a good time. And I managed to stay awake to ring in the New Year!! I am off work today so I am doing my yearly tradition of cleaning out closets and drawers and trying to get rid of stuff and organizing what I am keeping. I am making pretty good progress and have gotten rid of stuff that I didn't use at all last year. Next area? The craft desk, and that will take a while!

This is a really fun card and how fun to find the yellow Christmas paper. Sounds like you had a great New Year's, we usually don't stay up, but at least made it to the ball drop in NYC (we are central time).
