Rock the House

This is a spoiler alert – Don’t let Benjamin see this 🙂 As if a 5 year old would be reading this blog! This is the card I made for my grandson. I really like the way it came out. This stamp set is “Rock Star” by Inkadinkadoo. I thought it would be perfect for kids who love Guitar Hero. I used all Stampin’ Up card stock and Basic Grey patterned paper. This was my first try at making a charm with shrink plastic. I could not get a good picture but it came out cool.

It is hard to believe that tomorrow is Christmas Eve. I hope you have finished your shopping and are at home enjoying family and friends. We will be leaving Christmas Day to fly to Denver. Can’t wait to see the grandchildren and their parents :-0

Have a Peaceful and Merry Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by today…. Rock On!

Christmas Card Wreath

I have had all my friends saving old Christmas cards for me. I saw a wreath in Good Housekeeping that used old cards to make a wreath so I decided to make one. It was so easy. You cut Christmas cards into a holly shape, hot glue a toothpick to the shape, and stick it in a foam wreath. Done! I made mine this morning and now it is serving as the tree skirt for our tiny tree. We just have a very small tree because we are not here for Christmas and neither one of us like to come home and un-decorate a huge tree. Our ornaments on this tiny tree are mostly from our travels. I have included some from Russia, Finland, Amsterdam, Germany, Ireland, and Egypt. Enjoy the tour of our tree. Thanks for stopping by today.

I am a little slow

On this one. I loved Sharon Johnson’s accordion tag when I saw it. It just took me awhile to get it made. Then I was in a hurry to get it packaged to give as a gift so the pictures I took are awful. I am ashamed to post such awful pitures! In real life it is a prettier red, green and teal. Oh well, I liked it and so did my friend.

Today I finished this banner for another friend. I tried to make it shabby chic without going overboard. Some glitter, lace, rhinestones, and ribbon finished it off.

Have a good one.

Florishes Blog Post

Yesterday I got an e-mail from Julie Koerber, the blog manager for Flourishes. She asked if she could post one of my cards on the Flourishes blog. Of course I said “YES.” Remember the Liberace Sleigh? She liked all the bling on it. I was so excited!  Click here to see my card and all the other great cards from fellow crafters. Thanks for stopping by today.
