The Love of White Pines Christmas Paper

I am enjoying the White Pines Christmas paper X7200B and it is so versatile to work with.  One of the things I love about the holidays is our family traditions.  I enjoy carrying them on and sharing them with my two granddaughters.  I hope you enjoy your holidays and look forward to sharing some of my traditions with you.  I hope you share some of yours too.

Thank you for visiting my blog and have a great day on purpose!

Christmas Cards

Now is the time to get started on your Christmas cards if you are one of those people that mail out a lot or live far away from your love ones.  For many years my family has lived away from our parents and love ones because we are a military family, so I send out a lot of Christmas cards along with a letter giving everyone an update for the year.  One year we were in the middle of a move and I did not send them out.  Boy did I get an earful about not sending out my cards and letters.  So I start early and haven't missed a Christmas since.  A Christmas card is a very simple way to share your love with a love one.

Over the next couple of days I will be sharing cards made from my fellow Consultants using the White Pines Christmas paper pack.  I hope you enjoy and have a great day on purpose!
