These were in my stocking!
These were presents form DH and DD, plus the stamps below~aren't they wonderful!!
I made this Birthday Card for my step-father using my new Pirate stamps:
Pull up on the coin...
Here are the other things I worked on this week :
December and January ByHand This and That Mingle:
January-Kahlil Gibran, I didn't know who he was (a Lebanese/American artist/poet) but now I do! I love the quote I used!
December-Beethoven's Birthday- I actually made this design a few years ago on a 4X4 canvas. I liked it so much I thought I would reproduce it for this Mingle page. I learned a lot about Beethoven, and that he used a special rod attached to the piano so that he could feel the vibrations of the notes, since he went deaf as he grew older.A Journal Cover swap for ORSA, I took a cheap journal and re-vamped the cover. TIP: Be sure the journal is right side up when you do this!! (experience...!!) I just used scrapbooking paper, stamped the quote, layered the quote, put an eyelet in the corner with fibers and a charm and attached the quote (this is when I should have checked to see if it was right side up!)
Christmas Gift Cards:
I had 3 gift cards to give out this year, and wanted to do something special, so I made these pouches to hang on the tree, that can be re-used by the recipient:
I used a stamp of Santa for the hats, and just cut the hat off. I think they turned out well!
