Cards for Cousins ...

 Hello Friends!

WOW!  Christmas is only 3 weeks away ... YIKES!
Are you ready?  I'm not ... lol!

Today I have sets of Just For You Note cards to share with you.

 I am blessed with a large family and have many cousins (there were actually 41 FIRST cousins) though we have unfortunately lost a few along the way.  Luckily, we still make a big effort to stay in touch and one way we do this is to get together at a restaurant in PA (where a lot of them live) for breakfast on the 1st Friday of every month.  

With yesterday being the 1st Friday in December, and of course I always make the trip (only takes an hour & a half),  I thought ahead (for a change lol) and decided it would be fun to have a little surprise for all my female cousins that were able to come.  Sometimes there may only be a dozen of us ... other times there could be 25-30.  Just depends on who's available on that day.  

There are 6 cards & 6 envelopes in each pack and of course they are blank inside so they'd be able to write their own message when the time came.  But using a variety of 12x12 papers (of which I have an abundance) they came together quite quickly and everyone could choose a pattern that they liked.

I had 24 packs ready to go and they were thrilled with the surprise!

That's it for me today!
I'm still making holiday cards as I was lucky enough to sell several at my craft shows last month but now I've sold myself SHORT on what I need to send to family & friends!  LOL

Have a fabulous weekend and please stay safe out there!
Seems like every time I listen to the news there's another covid variant to worry about! Ugh!

As always ...


  1. What a lovely thing for you to do. I wish I had a huge family that lived close together. [Bunny]

  2. I am sure they were very happy with your gift... I am working on some for my daughter, need to get them in the mail to her soon.

  3. I feel fortunate that I was one who received a Christmas card and it's adorable with the stenciled trees and little fawn. Thank you! What a great group of cousins and cards!


Thanks for taking the time to leave me some love!
