2010 Christmas Cards


I thought I would show you some of the Christmas Cards I made last year. Since Christmas is one of the only times we correspond with people by mail  (versus email and phone and texting) I wanted to make each card unique.  For some of our family a religious card worked best, others something fun, and for others I went with their favorite Christmas theme. I got to either watercolor or use my copic markers on Snowmen, Snow families, moose, reindeer, angels and of course Santa Claus! I swore I was going to do 2 or 3 cards each month this year so I was not overwhelmed, but… Oh well, I have about 8 completed and will just have to up my monthly goal to5 or 6! As I blog more I am already learning so much. For example, do close up photos. Bear with me, I will get better at this!

About JoAnne Freeman

My name is JoAnne Freeman. I am married to my best friend, almost 35 years already! We have three wonderful children and two beautiful grand daughters. I am been sewing since I was five years old, in fact my earliest memory is sitting in my Mom's lap with her hands carefully placed over mine as we sewed a scrap quilt. Sometimes when I am sewing I am struck by how much my hands look like hers. Deja Vu moments. I have been scrapbooking and card making for about 12 years, seriously addicted for about 5 years. I discovered Copic markers about a year ago and have to add this to my other addictions (fabric, digital stamps, ribbon, card stock and scrapbook paper, machine embroidery designs to list a few). I have completed my Copic certification and hope to complete the Intermediate certification in 2012. My excitement with this new blog stems from my delight and enjoyment that I have in following so many of the talented artists that blog out there! I learn everyday, shamelessly watch tutorials and LOVE the outlet that these crafts provide for showcasing the talent out there.
