I have so much to say!!

3 Dec

Where do I begin?  I will announce my Christmas card winner from last post.  I am behind on that.  I did not really have any takers on the edited pic, so I am assuming I can skip that?  If you were hoping to win that..you just need to let me know.  Today..I will share..2 cards!

First, my card for tuesdaytrio.blogspot.com

Here is our current challenge sketch:

The Key word/ingredient : HOLIDAY

Here is my take on the sketch:

I do not know if any of you follow or play along in the challenge, but today I will announce something NEW.  Any of my followers, if you participate and place in the TOP 3 or get the spot as the Weekly Winner, you will get your choice of my CARD for that sketch.   So..I will be watching for the linky’s on the Tuesday Trio Blog.  I would love for you all to play along.  This is INTERNATIONAL, which is why I love it so.  I love to see the different styles and talents that we all have, worldwide.  So..come on!  Play along!!


I borrowed a tutorial for a wallet card from my bud, Jamie over at Bits of Paper.  The link for the wallet is here.  Here is Jamie’s description about the wallet: “This wallet works perfect for housing several gift cards or even homemade coupons (for date nights, homemade dinners of your choice, back massage,etc.)”

I wanted a card for a friend.  The card is SORT OF a joke.  See, there is nothing in this world that I could BUY, that he would need.  Also, anything he would WANT, I could never afford.  So the card has coupons for him to get things for himself, and allows for SOMEONE, other than me to pay for it!

He has a vested interest in a store called UNIONMADE.  Jamie gave me the idea of mkaing the wallet as a card, and I have designed it to go along with the Theme of the store.  The theme being, vintage, rare, highly sought after mens clothing.  Here is the card:  What do you think?  I might do my own version of this tutorial for the pattern challenged, as it took me a bit of working to make the pattern work.  Wondering out loud..if anyone would use a tutorial on this???








Love the COLORING on this Picture!!  Wallet and Fronts of Gift Cards.


Backs of Gift Cards.


I made some of my own papers for this, I also used some Graphic 45 embellies, twill tape, brads, mini clips and my sewing machine.  What do you all think??


Lastly..my winner of my Angel Miriam (Mary and Jesus) card.  Look at the picture below..if you see your name, email me your info and I will send the card off to you!!



I have some very fun news to share tomorrow, but for now!  I gotta get more things done!


Goodbye everyone!!
