National Christmas Card Day – Dec 9th

Today – December 9th – is National Christmas Card Day.  You would think that it would be something I already knew since I make cards but no.  This is the first time I’ve heard of it. 

CHRISTMAS CARD DAY – December 9th

Each year around this time, friends and families begin mailing their holiday cards. Christmas Card Day serves as a reminder to get your stamps, envelopes, and cards together so you can share your holiday cheer.  Are you making your cards this year?  I did not get cards made this year – well I got some made but not enough to send out to everyone.  Since we moved I’m working on a photo card instead.

These days everyone mails a variety of cards at Christmas time. In our modern world of social media some just post online or send emails and messages but cards are still around too.  There are handmade cards, store bought cards, photo cards, Christmas letters, post cards, business cards and even New Year’s cards. Just remember it’s a way to say “I’m thinking of you” no matter what form it comes in.

Here is a fun set of cards that I made with products from our Mini Catalog.  These were really fun with non-traditional colors.  Some of these products are on the LAST Chance List – so be sure to order them now before they sell out.

Happy Holidays to you!

♥ Monika

Paper Pumpkin Blog Hop – The Adventure Begins

Hello again.  Sorry it has been so long since I posted on my blog.  This has been a very busy year.  If you haven’t heard the news we are building a new house and moving out of our current house.  The first move is this weekend and I’ll be in a temporary spot for a few weeks until the new house is done.  Anyway it’s time for our monthly A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop.  A blog hop filled with alternate ideas using contents from the monthly kit. This month our kit is – The Adventure Begins.

I’m short on time so I’m going to add the photos of my projects for you.  And I’ll try to come back and add more details later.  I will tell you that if you watch the Paper Pumpkin Team FB Live from August 3, 2021 you can see my projects there.  And if you watch the FB Live on my page – At Monika’s Place – from August 2, 2021 – you can see how I made the box along with another card that I don’t have any photos of.  My kit is already packed and moved so I don’t have it to take a photo right now either.
