Merry Christmas Elf Shoes

Happy Feet!

I had to make a few final Christmas cards and I wanted to try something different.  After making 30 of the same card- I was ready for a change! I've seen many of these cute Elf Shoes on Splitcoast.  They are so adorable! I used Tim Holtz's banner die for my "Happiest of Holiday" tag.    I found great instructions for the card here-

I am sure I won't post before Christmas so I wish you all a VERY MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Vintage Christmas Cards

2011 Christmas Cards

I am still making our Christmas cards to send out before Christmas!  I love the vintage look of this card! I bought an old, old beaten up hymnal a year ago and have just started using it for my cards.  I used Tim Holtz's Rock candy glaze to preserve the old hymnal paper and add some texture.  The poinsettia die from Spellbinder's adds just the right pop of color to the card.  I also used the faux porcelain technique on my Merry Christmas tag on the front of the card.  I embossed the tag 2X to really give it a porcelain feel! 
Here are a few more pics!

Magic Christmas boxes

Finally, I am able to use a computer again!  We had internet connection issues that turned out to be our modem.   Before we figured that out- our computer just crashed!  We now have a brand new computer!  I love it but I really hate change.  I know it's cause I am old but I really loved that old computer.  I knew where everything was and it knew me too!  Ah well, if I have learned anything, it's that nothing ever stays the same.  

But I have been working in my studio.  We did go to Disney with my family just before Thanksgiving.  I may upload some beautiful pictures of our trip later on.  But I am hard at work on my Christmas cards and making Christmas boxes.  I found wonderful instructions on how to make the above boxes.  They are sooooo easy to make.  You can find the instructions here-

Here is another picture of the inside of the box.  I am going to fill it full of candy for the lucky recipients.

Computer issues!

My computer is having some major issues! We have purchased a new one that we hope to set up today. But first we have to have a repair person come and check our modem. We keep losing the connection to our server. Rats...I hope to be able to upload soon!!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
