Traditional Homespun Holiday Cards

Ok, so did I say I'd be back Monday? Well... this week slipped What a week... it must be Christmastime!  I just got tickets to The Nutcracker and I am so excited because my girls are finally old enough to go see it... I have the best memories of going to that performance every year when I was a kid and I hope this starts a new holiday tradition for our family.

Here are a few traditional holiday cards and tags that I made this season using red & green mostly paired with cream, white or kraft. I hope you enjoy!

They are all stunning. What a fabulous color schemes. I love love love them all. My personal favorite is that square card with the red/white gingham ribbon bow; that beauty is just breathtaking!

Enjoy the Nutcracker with your girls!

love all of these to bits!! I'm so excited for you to be taking the little people to the nutcracker!! My Hadley was 3 the first time we went & ABSOLUTELY mesmerized! She's even made a 'good list' for herself & if she fills all the boxes she says we can go see it again this year (we were already planning to go-this Saturday!- but it was fun watching her ask if I thought the day deserved an 'x'!!!! Have a great time!!!
