What I forgot to mention on my previous post was that the card I made was on a recycled base. I used cards that I bought more than a few Christmas' past - before we started sending newsletters for the holidays; before I started making my own cards. Here is a picture of the original cards I started with:
August'09 Small kit. Baker's twine from DKMdiva. The rest are scraps from my stash.
May'10 card kit. Eyelets from Eyelet Outlet & Brads. Ribbon from my stash.
I'll also send these to Operation Write Home.
