Christmas Card Fundraiser

Hello fellow card makers,

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, I find myself thinking of everything that I am so blessed to have and very thankful for.  So I am doing a very special Christmas card project this year.  I have created two different designs - see images  below - for this year's Christmas cards. This year is a little different.  I will be donating $1 from each card that is ordered to the Lydia House/.

The Lydia House is an emergency shelter for women and families that are victims of domestic violence. Some families end up staying here through the holidays and donations help bring a little holiday spirit to their lives.  The Lydia House is operated through the Open Door Mission.  Check out their website if your want to volunteer.

The first Christmas card design, Madonna and Child, has a red and gold color scheme. It is made with gold mirror paper and embossing to add a little sparkle and shine. The inside of the card reads: May the miracle of Christmas live forever…
