One of my favorite memories from each Christmas is receiving Christmas cards from friends and family.  I have always had the tradition of posting our Christmas cards on the inside of our front door... so I decided that I wanted to take a picture of it for you and also as a memory for me!  My cards are the last to go down.  I usually keep them up for a month after Christmas! Sounds crazy but I just love to enjoy them a little longer!  And sometimes there are a few more cards to add to the collage. The Tin Soldiers and the Mistletoe doll will be put away this week with the rest of the decorations.

Several weeks before Christmas I received this surprise package in the mail.  Inside was this gorgeous Christmas card from Linda, one of our dear DT members at Sweet Sketch Wedneday along with the Cuttlebug Sledding Embossing Folder that I had been wanting to purchase but couldn't find at any craft store.   Instead of the embossing being raised, it is indented.  I love the look it gives!

Thanks you, Linda, for your beautfiul card and your thoughtful gift!

Happy Undecorating!


  1. Ohhh, how sweet is that. Linda is a real sweetie!! I can see why you love that embossing folder. It is super cute. I love having my christmas cards up too. I didn't do it this year. But then, I didn't get many Christmas decorations up. I hope I am more in the spirit next year. We had a good Christmas though. It was great to have the kids here with me. Happy New Year Judi!!!
    Love Nancy

  2. What a fun tradition with your cards Judi. I love Christmas decorations and sad when they come down but then it's fun to get the house back in order too. I love those tin soldiers - very cute!

  3. Oh that Linda - how very thoughtful of her!!!! Love what you do with your Christmas cards. I hate taking everything down after Christmas - so sad :(

  4. Oh Judi, you are so very, very welcome!!!!! How sweet of you to post this. I love what you do with your cards. We usually take everything down New Years Day, but maybe I can talk hubby into leaving them up just a little longer. Happy New Year!!
