It's just the cutest pillow box for hanging on the tree with candy inside.
I chose not to cut out the tree shape window from the front of the box, but decided to make a 3D tree. I printed out two Penny Black Christmas star stamps and decoupaged them for the front of the pillow. Some twine is used to hang the box up. I also chose to decorate the box on the reverse side to accomodate my poinsetta.
My Christmas card for the latest Colour Challenge. The Wreath is an image from Graphics Fairy as is the background music paper. There are 3 colours of this wreath to choose from, this one is brown. I have used foam pads to make the wreath pop out but not too clear on the picture. I used a tan linen texture for the main background paper and the green and brown ribbon from my stash of seam binding. My buttons are a mix of dark tan wood and pearl. Sorry if my photo is not too clear!
A very good friend underwent a Hip Replacement Monday.
Here is the card I created to try to make him feel a bit better. As you can see my sense of humour ran riot a tad with this one. Inside the little bag are old rusty screws, washers and some string, a plaster, or in America, a bandaid, and not least a rubber band.
As it's Remembrance day soon I have made my own tribute card to those who have given their lives so that we may live in Peace. God Bless you All. My prayer is that their sacrifice is not given in vain.
This card has been made for a customer who's daughter has her birthday early December.
I thought I would try out the Bloggers Sketch over at Designs at Lisa Somerville on the front cover of my 'Book Card'. I had to alter it slightly to accomodate the cover, so hope I have been successful with that. The ribbon I used is the old fav. seam binding and is used to fasten the book closed. I made a bookmark using another image from the same set for the name of the sender to be added on the reverse side. The roses are deep burgundy and pick out the colours on the papers.
