The holidays are coming...













  Ohhhh yes they are....it is snowing here.....the air is crisp and oh soooo nippy.  Try 8 degrees nippy this morning.   yep.  So I am sooo getting in the mood for the holidays.  I popped in yet again to share some fun creations.....things that make me smile because I just dearly loved making them.   I started my paper crafting with banners....I don't do as many as I use to..they take some time...but I forgot how much I enjoy the process and the outcome.   I love the colors I used in this one....soft, subtle, and vintagey.  I topped it off with many layers...and lots of glitter.   I also am sharing a few cards made from Melissa frances  tags and envelopes.   Ohhh what fun these are to make.  The tags are large enough to make cute cards from them...and there is just someting about tucking it inside the pocket.  Makes me happy!  It is a hoot to add toppings to these....mini wreaths or candy canes...whatever suits you.   Many of the ones I find are from good ole Micheals.   Last but not least an altered plaque ...I think you know I love to make these.   I got some red vintage style tinsel through etsy and had to use it on this.   Again more toppings ....and a handmade rosette folded accordian style.   Rows of vintage buttons with twine...which I have used over and over again and never tire of.   Well that is it...hope it inspires you to maybe get your hands dirty with a little paper, glue, and glitter!    I will be back with an announcement I am excited about!  night, night, cherry

I love those little numbered Christmas flash cards. Are those Melissa Frances? I've googled everything I can think of and can't find them. Would you mind sharing where you got them? Love your cards.

Oh my gosh these cards are just amazing! I love your work, and I know they take a long time but you're right, the outcome is wonderful! I can't stop looking at the details of these beautiful vintage style cards! I want to go outside and go sledding or ice skating or something wintery!
