Some Christmas Creations

Well, Monday marks the end of the Caring Hearts Card Drive. This week I made up a few more cards to get out so that Vera, the sweet lady running this card drive, would get them by Monday!

(This card didn't actually go out, this was one of my Christmas cards.)

I used some non-traditional colors for these cards. I got these papers and embellishments as an addition to a Card crafting magazine that I recently purchased.

On the last card, I used a silver gel pen instead of actual string for the ornaments, but it doesn't show so well in this picture.

Thank You Minis

Hello Ladies... It's been a few days since my last post. It's been a busy couple of weeks. I just started on a new project at work and am getting used to a new schedule with about 2 hours more travel than I'm used to, so I've been a bit exhausted in the evenings. I have been crafting though, just haven't had the opportunity to get any posts up. These are some mini thank you cards that I made almost a month ago. 

Paper: Solid cardstock from Michaels, patterned paper from My Minds Eye
Sentiment: TLC Creations
Embellishments: Ribbon from Target dollar aisle, flower from a stamp and cut out, Gem from Michaels dollar aisle

I also made a few Christmas related projects... some mini cards and some mini gift bags

I haven't decided whether I am going to give these to someone or use them for Christmas tags myself.

Paper: Solid cardstock from Michaels
Embellishments on Gift Bags: foam snowflakes from Michaels, patterned paper and ribbon from a friend
