Christmas cards

I stitched two Christmas cards and sent them off yesterday. They have a long way to go, to Croatia for a charity bazaar. Hope they get there on time...

Here's Santa Claus! Couldn't resist to use one of the fabrics to enhance the stitching. Instead of cross stitching it, used a heart button. The card is Christmas red, and used a corner craft puncher with stars to add a small detail inside, but forgot to picture it and the envelope.

This cute snowman is a freebie from Tiens donc! The buttons are Jesse James snowflakes and country buttons.

Added hearts inside and on the envelope to match the one on top of the tree.

Right now I'm finishing the items for the exchanges, and this weekend I hope three of the peace angels will be ready, if that is so, well I'll picture them but without saying which one will go to whom!

Happy stitching!!!
