10 Days of Home-Made Christmas Cards: Day 8

This card is one of my very favorites. I know, I've probably said that for each post. This one features the "Terrible Tea Time" ladies. I hope you can read it. Honestly...my hand writing HAS improved since 1991 when I drew this up.
At the end of the cards look for a special holiday extra.
We were having a raffle at the library for Patron Appreciation Day on Wednesday (the 21st) and a patron donated an item that I REEEEAAALLLLYY wanted. It was Christmas in a jar.
It was perfect. It really captured everything about decorating for the holidays without all the bother. Christmas in a Jar is all you would ever need.
The only problem was...the staff wasn't reallly supposed to try to win. So I put in John's name. Hey, he's a patron. Right? Well, almost. But I knew I would never win. The odds were against me. Then, yesterday, I got a call from Tami, the Assistant Director. She said... to come to the library. She had something to tell me. So I went in and she, Patience and Randi surprised me!
They had basically put in names of relatives so that if any of them drew a name, they would give it to me!

That was SOOOO nice! So thanks, ladies. Have a very Merry Christmas!
