Christmas letters

Christmas letters..

I remember as a child, loving the Christmas season, for its decoration. My grandma would make us put up all the Christmas trinklets of gold, silver, blue, green and red and all the ruffles. We lived in a large old shophouse that has grown with age, and practicality rules the day!. We would put up our silver Christmas tree ( I think its the only one in town, for it was brought in by my nursing aunt who worked in London). We would put all the Christmas cards received on string (talk about banners of cards :p) hovering over our sofa set and wall. We always looked forward to our Christmas mails from aunties across the sea, pen pals from around the world.. small but wonderful treats for us then … I am still smiling πŸ™‚

Today I share this card using Sew Many Cards (SMC) digi – Letter with Berries, reminding me of all these childhood memories of Christmas and today.. since I started crafting, I have received many happy mails (from crafters and craft companies :p) fills me with such delight. πŸ˜€

This week itsΒ SMC Challenge is ANYTHING GOES.. do drop by and join us for crafting during this festive season.

Blessed Christmas everyone. Hugs to you all. Thanks for all your love πŸ™‚

Hugs… .Annie
