Through the Eyes of Children

"In the eyes of children we find the joy of Christmas. In their hearts we find its meaning."

Author: Leland Thomas
Wow I can't believe we are in the month of December already! Now we are in the thick of the holidays what better way to see it than through the eyes of a child. I'm lucky enough to have 14 grandkids and it's a joy to Christmas through them.
If you have come from the Card A Day Blog welcome.

The card I made today came from the Cricut Cartridge A Child's Year. What a great cartridge about all kinds of things going on with kids. If you are making christmas tags this year take a look at this cart to for that it has lots of ideas. 

Now for the card: My card base came from the Heritage paper pack from the paper company, also the Santa and Child were cut from this paper too. my background paper is from DCWV Christmas Combo 180 pack and the corners were punched with the fiskars heritage corner punch (that has 3 different corners). This was a fast and easy card to get put together. I cut the image out @ 4" and also the shadow. Popped it up with 1/16" pop dots, added a present sticker I got off a sticker sheet I got at the local dollar store and red stickles to give it more of a pop. The sentiment is a stamped ribbon piece I got at my local scrap shop and I added red stickles to each of corners. Brought the same background paper and sentiment to the inside of the card to dress that up. This was a fun card that didn't take to long to make.

It's easy to get caught up in all the rushing around that often characterizes Christmas these days. If you want to recapture the innocence and wonder of Christmas, then see the holiday through the eyes and hearts of a child.
Have a fantastic day and thanks for stopping by.
