Fröhliche Weihnachten!

Hello!   Right about now, I soooooo wish I were back in Germany - the wonders of the season ... the snow ... the Christmas markets ... the snow ... the cathedrals celebrating the Savior's birth ... the snow! :)  I am mailing a package to my brother for the holidays and wanted to put in a small Christmas tag, and ended up with a card somehow :)  Although he's a typical guy and not into cards, I still wanted to personalize it just a bit with a "guy" image and knew I wanted to ink up my lonely CC Designs "Hansel with Lederhosen!"  He's too cute!  I also knew I wanted to use non traditional colors just a bit and pulled from the blue and orange in the papers.  I doubt he will even notice that Hansel doesn't have a mouth, ROFL!!





Wishing you a most wonderful weekend!  We are starting the holiday shows with our daughters and their schools - several performances this weekend, combined with a birthday celebration.  The busy-ness has officially begun!

    Blessings to you!
   Big hugs,
~Kelly

  9. What a great card!!!! It is so perfect and reminds me of Germany ( worked for a German company and traveled there) Great colors! I saw your comments about Xmas, what about a small fake tree to bring on your trip? Of course any decorations you put up at home, I am sure they will be gorgeous. Have fun making your GBread house, birthday and concerts, always the busy one :)

  11. Kelly, as usual, your fresh take on colors is perfect! The image is soooo cute & expertly colored to match the CS. The twine & buttons finish it off nicely. Your brother should really appreciate your creation, even if not a "card guy"!

  12. Great card for a guy. I like that you used more nontraditional colors too. Ahh, the business of the season has started here too. We have no kids, but all the nieces and nephews are having their holiday concerts, plays and all that too. Enjoy!

  15. Love your Hansel in Lederhosen! A town near us has an annual German festival in the summer and I always tease my DH that I'm going to buy him a pair (his family is Scottish/Irish and mine is German).
    Your card is wonderful and I love the scallop edge at the bottom! Of course your choice of papers are completely perfect!
