"Five for Fridays" Joy to the world card

It's THAT Friday!  Yes, it's "Five for Fridays" with Tammy Tutterow's  Creative Team.
It's that busy time of you .. I know. But I hope you can still find time to sneak a way for a little creative time. For me, it's just such a time to unwind.  Even if it's just sitting down to make a few gift tags or a simple card for someone special.
Even tho a love making cards and I always send Christmas cards, believe it or not, I don't send handmade Christmas cards, for the most part. ( I can almost hear the gasp). lol   I love sending Christmas cards, but I do not find it fun or relaxing to make 50 cards all alike, and I'm never ambitious enough to start months ahead.  So... long ago I  gave myself permission to not feel I needed to. lol  I totally enjoy sending Christmas cards, and I always seem to find some that I really like. 
  I do make a few each Season and I send those to my elderly Aunts. Or to some close friends elderly parents.
I decided to look up the history of Christmas cards. (link below)
 The  history of Christmas Cards

Tammy has some really great stamps for Christmas.  For cards, altered projects and gift tags.

I have to say Happy Birthday to two of my three favorite guys.  Dan and Jarad (our youngest son) both had birthdays this week.

Now, I need to get busy making cookies before I eat these!

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend!

This is such a fun, festive card, Vic! Love the gold glitter banner flag layer! You and I share a love for banner elements on a project. I know your cookies will be fabulous! Merry Christmas hugs!

Vicki, I've been considering going back to store-bought cards, and hearing your story may have decided it for me. I love your idea to send your hand-made ones to special people. That may be my plan of attack next year - so much less stressful! Love how this one turned out with the golden glitz!
