Snowflake lantern

Well, I made cut files for several new Christmas lanterns but never finished making all the actual lanterns. Just was not able to make them all. 

Here is a snowflake lantern that I did get made.

Guess there is always next year for all the other ones I made files for. LOL

Hope you all have a great Christmas Eve and a wonderful Christmas.

Thank you for Quilt

Wow, it has been almost 3 weeks since I posted. I think this is the longest amount of time I have ever gone without posting to my blog. All is well. I just got busy with Christmas stuff. 

I made this card as a very special "thank you" for my friend, Judy.

She made me a beautiful quilt! 
Yes, a lovely quilt just for me!
I am not sure I deserve it, but I REALLY appreciate it. It makes me warm on the inside and outside. I think about all the work and effort that went into making it and I feel "hugged" :)

It has my very favorite colors and wonderful butterflies.

So I wanted to make her a special thank you card. I used more Bo Bunny The Avenues patterned paper and some beads from Art Glitter...

It is called Gala Glitz (brown) and contains seed beads, micro beads, glitter and mica flakes. It is so very pretty. I used it for the centers of the flowers and the swirls. For the swirls, I used a stencil to lightly trace the pattern then went over the line with white glue. Then I just sprinkled the Gala Glitz on like glitter.

Hope you all have a wonderful holiday season and a very merry Christmas.
I will post again soon.

Fleur de lis Panel Card

I wanted to make a special card for my mother's birthday. I brought out a beautiful patterned paper from Bo Bunny, The Avenues, which I have been hoarding for a while now. It is one of those papers that are so pretty that it is hard to cut into. (I know all you paper crafters know what I mean:) I decided to go with two main panels of cardstock and one of my Fleur de Lis cut files for the focal point. I added some Recollections bling, seam binding, and some of my handmade flowers.

I was really happy with how it turned out.

Thanks for dropping by.
