My Gift with a greeting!

Tammy Louise here, and it's my turn to share again on the Whimsy Inspiration blog!  One of the favorite projects this year at my craft show is the greeting card that keeps on giving!  You send this to your favorite relative telling them how much they mean to you and that you miss them and that this greeting has a secret surprise!

Comes out of the envelope like this

New October Release Image
"Bart Loves Christmas" from Crissy Armstrong 

Then you take the ornament off the velcro ~ place the ribbon on the card front 
The ornament adorns their tree and reminds them of you and your greeting every time they gleam at their tree this year and every year following!  Now that's a Christmas greeting they won't forget!
