Love you Card

I entered this card into a contest about 2 months ago and obviously didn't win LOL Anyways I waited to post a picture because in the terms it said so anyways I'm looking for something to post. So here it is.

We didn't go to Knotts today ralph had to work we are attempting to go tomorrow although there is supposed to be rain. The tickets were a gift to us from our friend Chris. Wether we stay til 5pm when it closes or even for a few hours it will be fun!

Christmas we will be getting up and opening presents(which I'm going to wrap after this post) and going down the hill to my grandmas house for dinner. Frieday will be a rest and let the kids play with goodies, Saturday we will be going to my dads for "christmas" again. Sunday another day of rest and playing with more new goodies LOL. Monday is back to normal. Thank God!

I am getting together my New YEars Resolutions, I'm making a Scrapbook page for WhoGAS group I'm apart of. I have it all planned out on paper and just need to do it already so that will hopefully be my next post.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone!

Hostess club card swap and projects

I decided to give my blog a make over. I hand drew ..well hand mouse this in my MSpaint program. Pixel by pixel, this is extremely time consuming but used to be a hobby of mine. I really like the way it came out. Hope you all enjoy looking at it, when you stop by.

We stamped on this Candle on Friday night for or hostess club meeting. I think it came out really cute. Everyone really liked it. How cute would this be in a cello bag with some paper shreds and chocolate, dress it up with a cute little tag!

We also made 2009 calendars. There's a magnet on the back so it will look adorable on your fridge.
This was my swap card. Everyone wanted to participate in a card swap, I just love pink and it's such a different color to use for Christmas. I used the Irridecent ice embossing powder on the entire piece of whisper white card stock to really give the snowflake some sparkle. I'm very happy with how it came out. It was really quite simple too.

Decorating for the Holidays!

Here's a picture of my mantle! I made these Christmas Trees using the Dashing Designers series paper from last year. I bought some small pots from Home Depot and painted them, put some styrofoam in and a dowel for the trunk of the tree. Then hot glued some fake moss to the top of the foam in the pot. I added some of our Real Red 5/8 inch ribbon to the top I just LOVE these trees!

On the side of the trees I made some matching explosion boxes. They are empty and just look like presents by the tree..
See they are empty...
Last but not least some Pine cone ornaments again with the same ribbon and paper. I just adore these decorations and will be putting them up for years to come!

Happy Holidays Enjoy making your decorations.... make it a Family tradition!
