Let's Mix it Up!

Let's mix it up, shall we? This weekend I'm doing two art fairs - on Saturday, the South Austin Artist's Co-op show, and on Sunday, the Hadassah Bazaar at the Jewish Community Center (Details here on the Understand Blue Facebook Page).

To prep for Sunday I've made some beautiful Hanukkah cards - quickly becoming my favorite holiday cards because of their BLUEness, but the nice lady putting together the show also asked me to come up with a "mixed" holiday card for people who have half Christian, half Jewish households and want a nice holiday card.

I was stumped until yesterday, when I came up with a nice, wintery, simple card I think does the trick!

What do you think? The star is from Mazel Tov (Papertrey Ink) and the tree is from my FAVE sizzlits die - Merry Details - the one with the bird with the foofy tail. I now have 8000 foofy tailed green birds I can do something with after making these cards.

The icicles are from the Martha Stewart Icicle border punch, which works for drippy goo for Halloween or for icicles! At first I added glitter to the icicles, but it broke up the simplicity and I bagged it. BAG IT DANO!

Greeting is from Sincere Salutations and the ornament hanger is from Tree Trimmings.

Happy Tuesday everyone! You've been so quiet - what are you making this month? Tell me! :)

Have you signed up for the UBlue Cyber Club? Attended one of my Webinars?? Come on - get your geek on! :)

  1. Hi! I think that the card is great and just the right thing for your situation. (can't wait to see what you do with the bird)

    I have been knitting socks mostly and cleaning out my sewing room and my stamproom. My son is moving back home and needs a place to sleep.

    Been making a few quilts too. I am loving it!

    Have a great time at both of the shows.


  2. i think this is nice!

    i made a beautiful hanukkah card for bob's cousin's family one year, using blue and gold tissue paper candles as the theme. loved how it turned out. took a picture, but have no idea where it is...just thought i'd share that if you need some inspiration.

    i've been making turkeys out of scallop circles for the kiddos at the ronald mcdonald house and concocting vegetarian lasagna for tonight's meeting at work where we find out all the deets about the holiday promos.

  3. What a clever idea... and a beautiful CAS card! Jo x

  4. Beautiful card! Just perfect.

  5. Perfect card. You do outstanding work!

  6. Lydia,

    Too cute! You just gave me an idea for using my Merry Details Sizzlets die. Thanks for the inspiration!
