Red and Gold

Hello sweet bloggers,

Yesterday evening was lovely - some close friends and I went to a fusion restaurant for dinner to bid farewell to a dear friend who is relocating back to Melbourne with her hubby after living in Indonesia for 17 years. We had a great time with good food, drink and lots of laughter. 

As you know, I have sold enough cards to continue supporting the five kids which I did last year. And I have been lucky enough to have another USD 170 left over which may increase to USD 200. I am thinking of donating this amount to Red Cross in Philippines for the victims of the recent storm tragedy. It is a small amount but am sure it will help in some way. And thank you, dear bloggers for all that you do for me. It makes me stay motivated to do what I am doing.

Here is my card to show you today - the base is a browny gold paper and the red layer is handmade paper from India and the dull gold is fancy gift wrap embossed with my pretty snowflake folder. The ribbon looks even prettier in real life and the crystal you see in the centre is from Kaiser.

Down below is a shot of the 30 cards all packed and ready to be delivered.

Happy Thursday,

How beautiful your holiday cards are, Monica! Each one so unique with satiny and elegant touches. Monica, I did not realize Christmas cards would sell very well in Indonesia - you have educated me! Thank you for always showing the pretties CAS style cards. It takes real talent to continually come up with lovely ideas like you do. I hope to learn from you in 2014 to make some similar cards. In the meantime, we are celebrating our season of thanks. I offer thanks for the joy of knowing you, dear Monica, and for the friendship we enjoy on line. Thanks for being you. hugs, de
