Card Sharing

A Rosy Little Christmas by Susan Rios

If you go to the Susan Rios Designs site, you can click on this painting for a much larger view.

Today I am sharing a couple of Christmas cards. There is no artist cited anywhere on the back of the card. I like this one because the design and decor idea could be used year round.

The roses make this tree very soft and attractive; comfortable.

This is a card with the teacup put on 3-d tape.

I finished the mother and daughter dresses from the flannel. They do not look as good on the hanger..they are wrinkled like the picture shows. The camera shows two different shades but in reality the fabric is the lighter color. It is a high quality cotton flannel with a bit of a sheen to it like polished cottons, and is very smooth to the touch.


These dresses look very elegant on the models, but the photographs do not give them justice.

Close view of the girls buttons.

I used the large buttons for the mother dress and the small ones for the daughter dress. They matched the snowflakes in the fabric print.

I hope this brightened your day.

Thank you for sharing the cards. It's so difficult to decide on which Christmas cards to purchase some years. The paintings are so comfy and cozy and warm, even if the pictures are of snow. Also, thanks for sharing the dresses. That was quick! Wish the picture with them wearing the dresses turned out.

Merry Christmas Lady Lydia!

I really enjoyed the cards you shared and the lovely dresses for mother and daughter that you made. My you are fast at sewing!

I have saved many Christmas cards over the years. My favorite thing to do with them is make mini-ornament boxes with them and hang them on the Christmas tree or give some small gift in them such as a party favor or truffle.

Your ideas always brighten my day.
