Wow, I love Cardinals on Christmas Cards. This one is going to my Brother-In-Law-my husband's brother and my kids favorite Uncle. He is a "Cardinals" fan and collects Cardinals. He will love and appreciate this one for sure-It has lots of Cardinals on it...lol The products used on this card is as follow:
Spellbinders: Lace Doily Motif and Lace Doily Accents
Paper- K & Company
Rhinestones, Ribbon, Stickles, and a Prima Poinsettia with brad
Here are some cute baskets I made to give away during Thanksgiving. I have always loved to give away little things like this to people I work with, the tellers at the bank, the man at the post office, my favorite grocery store clerk-people I want to touch that I see almost everyday and want to thank them. God has blessed me recently with the ability to do these little things again. After losing my job three years ago, I had to stop doing what I love. But recently things have changed for me with my new job and I am able to pass my blessings on to others.
I just made these up on my own from memory from when I did my Easter Baskets. This is made with the following items.
Spellbinders: Pumpkin Nestabilities, Fancy Tags 3, Oval Nestabilities
Punch- Marvey Medium Daisy (This was for my sunflowers)
Sizzix: Leaf die
Ribbon, stickles, Martha Stewart Micro Beads, Ranger tea dye distress ink, Cell bags, ribbon, and candy to fill the baskets.
Thanks for stopping by. We have one more day, so I will see you tomorrow with my last creation. Stayed tuned for Saturday when our new Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge begins and next week we will bring to you the "12 Days of Christmas" projects. It is sure to be fun and inspirational and in time for you to get your Christmas crafting done in time for the gift giving season!
ABC Christmas Challenge - "U" is for unused stash. I used some of last years K& Company Paper in my card and the Poinsettia flower is older than that!
