12 Days of Christmas Tags -- Day 5

For today's tag, I wanted to share another set of cards that I made as a gift for Jonah & Sage's science teacher. She was Austin's kindergartin teacher and I remember that she used to take the kids to look at her apple tree throughout the year, so they could observe it during the different seasons. This memory prompted me to make her a set of cards using my PTI Falling Leaves stamps set, with the sentiment from Happy Trails. I made them all using PTI rustic white cardstock. She'll get two of each card.

And a close up of the tag:

I used PTI cardstock (kraft, dark chocolate, simply chartreuse, harvest gold), felt ((dark chocolate, simply chartreuse), stamps (tremendous treats: Christmas, Christmas labels), twine, button, woodgrain impression plate & dies (tag sale #5, double ended banner, love lives here: holiday, Christmas labels).

Since we were all dressed so nicely for church this morning (Jonah & Sage have their Christmas concert tonight at church), I suggested that we take some photos in front of the tree. I got this shot of Sage to test the lighting-- she was making goofy faces, but then I got this one when she laughed:

We took this group shot with the timer & tripod, which is always a little hit or miss:

And Austin took this one of Cameron and me:

Thanks for looking!
