Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays to those who visit my blog these days!

This is a small sample of a family tradition. Every year I bake many pounds of Christmas cookies of different shapes and flavors. Some days before Christmas, along with my children, we invite their cousins, from little ones to grown up, sometimes some of their friends, to paint the cookies. It is a traditional day for us, listening to carols, where each one receives an equal number of cookies to decor and then take home. Sometimes it's a bit stressful, because, believe me, knead, cut and bake several pounds of cookies is a lot of work, but the joy of this day will remain in their memories forever:)

I hope you have a great time!

Hugs, Edith

Happy Snowman

Hello! Thanks for your visit today!

This is my new Christmas card...

I love to put snow in my cards! Where I live there is no snow at Christmas. It is a bit nostalgic thinking about Santa Claus in his sleigh on the snow and it was my frustrated desire since I was a little girl. I would love to see a little snow out my window, of course not much, because I have seen how some of my friends are suffering from the cold and heavy snowfalls, even before winter arrives.

I made this card using the Mojo Monday Sketch and the Happy Snowman, a drawing that I made for the occasion. I usually use typical colors on my Christmas cards, like green, red and gold, but in this case, as I will enter the card in other challenges, I used other colors.

Card supplies: Image © of EdithDesigns, German metallic blue and silver cardstock, K & Company Winter Wonderland designer paper, Sizzix Sizzlits snowflakes Die, snowflake punch paper, Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder, Duncan snow paint, translucent glitter paint, silver metallic ribbon and, of course, my sewing machine:)
