A Very Merry Christmas to All

Fun Sunday

That was yesterday and boy was I busy. I made my first ever "Side step card". I have always made my own cards on the computer...I like personalized things. I graduated to premade cards that I could add things to and make them my own. But, I have never made a card from scratch. So out came the Cricut and all my fun papers (which I collected with no idea as to why) and I began to play. I had watched a video on card making and a friend of mine is very into it. Ceil makes beautiful cards. So between both I had some good advice on what to do and how to do it...It took me 8 hours LOL I'm sure they go faster then that, but I was pretty happy with the results. I then made my DSIL a BD card, he collects dragons :-)
I can't show you everything I have piling up on my finished table. But since I mailed the Card and the Charms out today...I will show you those. The charms are for a steam punk exchange. One was created from watch parts, some twisted copper wire and a bottle cap and the other was a piece of Citrine I had in my stash...I wired it along with some lock washers...sometimes less is more...You be the judge.
I don't think I've ever sent anything out that I wouldn't like to get myself, so you know I'm pretty happy with the results of both of these swaps...
Stay tunes <evil grin>
