First Christmas Card of 2016


Happy New Year!  I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays.  I had a wonderful time with my friends and family.  My oldest son made it home safely from his study abroad semester in Bhutan. I have enjoyed listening to his stories and looking at his pictures.  We also spent an afternoon cooking together one of his favorite dishes from Bhutan, momos.  Momos are little steamed dumplings.  He said his favorite ones were stuffed with cabbage and carrots so that is what we made.  He also made us dahl or dal which is letils, tomatoes and spices cooked into a thick puree like a soup.  So delicious!
Today's card is my first Christmas card of 2016.  It is also my first  Christmas card as a DT member for Crafty Hazel Nut's Christmas challenge extra.  My blog post is late and I hope that is not how the rest of 2016 will go for me.  My only excuse is that I just got overwhelmed with the holidays and didn't look at my calendar.
My favorite projects to make are Christmas cards so I hope you join us in making your Christmas cards through out the year instead of in a mad dash during November and December.

Such a pretty background paper you chose. The red gives a great visual punch with the other neutral colors.
