I made these pages for my mother for christmas. The words MOTHER are from the Cricut cartridge Mother's Day cut at 3 inches.
The doily2 is cut at 5 inches with a translucent vellum behind it with a couple of pearl brads and Ranger stickles-diamond and waterfall used. The glitter lace paisley is We R memory keepers and is self adhesive. The rosette I made myself and added a button from A Rhonna Christmas collection and Pink Bazzill cardstock. Mother paper is from Karen Foster. Thanks for looking~

I deceided to make a Christmas card holder and this is what I came up with. I have also entered this in My Sheri CRAFTS challenge #36 Christmas.
Recipe for Christmas card holder:
Chipboard 4x16 or any size you want
K&Company Gold glittered Twinkle type letters and flourish
red and green ribbon
BIA and 1/2 inch o wires
Crop a dile and eyelets 3/16
Cricut cartridge Christmas cards at 3 inch
Folk art paint-metallic Christmas green, metallic silver sterling and metallic bright red
badge clips 10-20
Tim Holtz Distress ink Vintage photo
Embellishemts of your choice
I painted each one in the three colors. Then I swiped the distressing ink along the edges. I then took my BIA and punched holes to hold the owires.On one board I put Merry then on another the flourish in the middle then Christmas on the last. I chose three cards off of the christmas card cart to add to them along with some other embellishments. I then punched holes with the crop a dile and added the eyelets and then srtung it up. The badge holders can be moved anywhere on the wires to hold the cards of any size and shape. Thanks for looking~

You sent 12 items and marked one gift for Christmas day to be opened. The other 11 are opened one per day up to Christmas. This was a fun swap. Here is my gifts from my Elf. Sorry I did not think to take a pic of the gifts I sent to my SS. I hope she likes everything I sent to her:)
So far so good I have kept the temptation back, but it is now going to be hard since soon I will be able to open one. Not sure which, I may have my husband pick for me. I will post each day what I got as I open each one. Hope you will join me~

Where I work we have a young lady that has cancer and it is aggressive. She has gone through much. I and the woman I work with wanted to do something special for her, so I made the card and she bought a small basket with a yellow rose and some greenry and gave it to her. She is fighting all she can. She said to us " I have cancer but it does not feel like it is there." She is putting up a brave battle, I pray she will win. She comes to work everyday with a positve attitude and a smile on her face.
Even though she is going through this, she does sometimes feel like she is not whole, I thought this quote might help her that even though she is going through a lot she is still beautiful no matter what.
She thanked us, she needed that. She made us cry.
So I decided to alter it to be used for a Christmas gift. I used GBS for this. It took several tries, but I thought it turned out pretty nice.
I used Tim Holtz alcohol inks silver and gold to put on the edge. Sorry pic is not very good. As soon as I can I will have the cut file uploaded to my account on mediafire.
I chose the song Silver Bells. I printed out the song and put it on cardstock. I then did 4 blocks for pics. I found a pic of Santa and children from a postcard (I think) put it in an editing software, added lines to be used as a jb. With my Cricut, I cut a city scene at 3 inces from PSB. The bells at 3 inch from Wedding cart. Silver Bells from Jasmine and the shodow using DS. The two women shopping I found on the internet. I converted it to an SVG and useing my Cricut and SCAL, I cut them out also at 3 inches. The street light is cut at 3 inches with the lights hidden in DS. I shortened and then used a 1 inch circle punch to punch the red and green for the lights.

I am trying to do a button so people can grab it and put on their site, can not seem to figure out how to click on it and get it to go to my blog. My code must not be right, having some difuculty with it. Still learning how to do everything, adding pages, links and so forth. So please have patience with me. Working full time and trying to fit all I love in each day can be a bit trying. But I love the challenge and any help would be much appreciated.
