Soon It Will Be Christmas Day!

A quick check of the calendar proves it is December.  It is not only December, but it is the eve of St. Nicholas Day.  When we were kids, this is the day we hung our stockings.  St. Nicholas brought mostly oranges, nuts and some candy and we were as excited as if it were a new bicycle! 

In honor of St. Nicholas Day I have made two Christmas cards using a couple of my favorite Penny Black stamps. 

First, here is Snowy, stamped with the woodblock stamp of that name dating back to the year 2002:
Kay Miller is a Simplicity Sister on the Penny Black blog and recently she posted this card, using a color combination of kraft, red and white.  I had to give it a try and love the result:


I have two little grandchildren that will be receiving these cards for Christmas.  It's hard to believe that Evelyn Rose is now 2 1/2 and Jack Lincoln is a year old and walking! 

I have almost finished with my card making projects; next step: mailing them out!

Thanks for stopping by.

I'm getting closer to finishing my cards too. I love the ones you're sharing today, Judy! One of my fave snowmen - sooo cute! And your take on Kay's card is adorable! Hope you're well. Sending holiday hugs! ♥

Both wonderful cards, Snowman is cute and the use of kraft cardstock with red and white 'perfect'. Your grandkids will love them.

Judy, both cards are fabulous! I adore that snowman...I wonder if they still sell that stamp? I love him every time I see him! I also love the kraft & red card, so pretty!

These are delightful - I hope their mommy's will be saving these cards for them to look at when they're older.
