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-decorateÂ 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.
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.Â

Have a good one.
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 â€œYES.â€ Remember the Liberace Sleigh? She liked all the bling on it. I was so excited!Â Â Click hereÂ to see my card and all the other great cards from fellow crafters. Thanks for stopping by today.
