Merry Little Christmas Cards

Hi Everyone!

Well Christmas draws ever closer and as we run about doing our last minute gift buying or like me a day of baking let us pause and remember what Christmas is all about. Christmas is that special time of year when we reflect on how rich our lives truly are because of the special people in them, a time that you should stop take a breath and marvel in the beauty of the season and for no reason help those who are less fortunate than yourself. Hold your loved ones close, partake in a tradition that perhaps might have gotten lost along the way and celebrate the true meaning of the season. I wish all of you a very happy holiday season.
I thought I would share some of my holiday cards with you as my final entry before Christmas...remember a hand made card is a present all in itself because you took the time to create it for someone.

Hi everyone!

Well the holidays are in full swing and as we all run about searching for the perfect gifts for our loved ones I thought it might be fun to have my monthly Freebie Friday with a little Twist! So what I have decided to do is share some of my favorite pictures with you and challenge you to create something with one of  the images below, you know.....a card....a tag.....an ornament......what ever your imagination can dream up. Then place a comment to this thread and a link where we can see your creation (or you can email it to me at fripperiesandbutterflies@yahoo.com ) and then on January 19th (my birthday) I will feature a blog entry that shows all the entries and will let all my followers email in a vote on who their favorite is....and the winner will be announced on  January 29th. And what does the winner get? You will get a $25 shopping spree at Gecko Galz on line store www.geckogalz.com . And 4 runners up will get a collection of images put together by me! So this will be my last blog challenge for 2012 and I hope everyone will take part...I want to see your art!
