Waltzingmouse Secret Santa Holiday Card Exchange

I know it is January but I have 2 more Christmas cards to post from the Waltzingmouse Secret Santa Holiday Card Exchange .  Cathy Weber from Empty Nest Crafters was sweet to enough to get this event organized and she did an amazing job. Thank you so much Cathy! This is my second year participating and I look forward to doing this over and over again.  It is so much fun getting homemade cards for the holidays and the one I received is just so adorable.

My card was from Julia Aston and she was sweet enough to put me on the "Nice List". Julia this is one adorable card, just as sweet as the gingerbread people in the cookie jar. 

This is the card I made for Polly Johnson, but I know my card has not quite made it over the pond yet.  When I addressed the card I forgot to put the country on it and was so lucky that the post office brought it back so I readdressed it in a new envelope complete with country this time and it is on its way once again so I will be posting this photo for Polly. 

Cathy, thank you again for all that you did to organize this card exchange.  You are so awesome!
