~ JOY holiday cards ~

 Rich red and warm yellows, greens - such cosy colors for the days ahead. I have a couple of cards to share tonight before bed.

I found this soft, luxurious crocheted trim in my mother's box (again!) ... little things piled together onto the palette of kraft cardstock - and a happy, warm card is created!

Crinkled paper flowers ... and velvet leaves. Makes me happy.

And I've got to say it again, that trim is so beautiful! Watch for more of it in the coming days :)

Another card for you ...

... grosgrain ribbon, fussy-cut flowers, more pretty trim, and a mini, mini tag.

 See the little pile of tags in the corner? That's something I will share in the store soon ... coming in bundles of tea-stained tags, 25 or 50 each, for your own crafting craves. I'd love for you to share my craze for them :)


OH! and before I forget...... the happy one who wins the set of holiday tags is..........
Number seven.

Yes, it's you, Jo! :) pop me an email at viola.mahr@gmail.com and off your tags will go!

Hugs, and good night.

  1. Love the cards and the tiny tag. so cute. Thanks for sharing.

  2. So glad the other demands of life (like me!) have not kept you from doing what you do best! I love both of these! I do like the trim, the colors are perfect, and I really like that bow holding those roses! (The give-away was a really fun idea...lucky Jo!!). Have a good day, my friend!! Oh, yeah, my good friend has been to my blog since the switch...she LOVES it!!

  3. Beautiful vintage style cards! Love the soft colors and lace! Pretty green ribbon on your second card. I like the way it is tied. Thanks for sharing and visiting my blog.

  4. Oh my Viola these are stunning! I'm in love....
