  6. This card is destined for my friend's little girl who got a sledge for Christmas last year but couldn't use it because we had no snow. She is desperate to use it so fingers crossed for this year!

  9. My second card (#24) is a sympathy card for my cousin's family. His wife's father recently passed away. Thankfully they are Christians and know that Grandpa is with his Lord and Savior Jesus now. Still, he will be very much missed.

  10. Card #25 is for my adorable nephews I don't get to see as often as I'd like. Living 9 hours away means I can't go to their Upwards! Sports games or see their school programs, but Aunt Carrie can still send them a card for all their birthdays and all the holidays!

  11. The BooBulldog card I have entered here is actually a "second, and different, take" on a card we gave some dear friends this past week as a thank you for their hospitality. English Bulldogs are the family's favorite, hence this stamp, which I got specially to make cards for them. Likely, I will be making more cards featuring Boscoe to send to their adult kids this week. It was fun entering this challenge. Thanks, Taylor!

  12. My treat bags (#26) will go to my friend who is the hugest witch fan ever and to my husband who is the hugest candy fan ever. :) I love making treat bags because I can't bake or cook worth a hill of beans, so at least I can look cool if my packaging is snazzy!

  14. I'm going to send my card to a relative or friend who enjoys a good laugh. I'll decide to whom it'll go when I have more or less met my target number of Christmas card to create. :)

  16. It's such fun reading where all these cards are going. Happy sendings, sad sendings, just because sendings. Had a couple of emails from folk who got cards in the post and it just makes me happy. Thanks TE for inspiring me to send out more of my makes. Have a sunny day. Hugz
