Advent Boxes

I guess I can show these now. I made these advent boxes for two DF of mine. I gave them to them a couple of days ago so they could begin opening them Dec 1st. Of course in each little box is a special wrapped present. You wouldn't believe how hard it was to fill all these spots with things they didn't already have. I so enjoyed making them and the best part is they get to have a surprise every day in December! How fun is that?

Tag Tuesday- Photo

At Kard Krazy this week the theme is to use a photo. I followed Louise's lead by using a family photo and Christmas theme The photos are my brother and myself with Santa. The funny thing is we both had black eyes at that time.I wish it showed better in the pictures but there too small. I always wondered what Santa thought when he saw our black eyes? The stamps are from Stampers Anonymous and Inka Stamps.

The Holidays are upon us.

With my first card for November I thought I'd kick it off with a Christmas card. I'm really pleased with how this came out. The stamp is from I Brake For Stamps The new Snowflake collage. The technique is from TJ the splatter technique from the June 09 issue and the papers are from the new sponsor this month atGingersnap Creations
Paper Temptress Her papers are so yummy. The Lustre Vintage Silver Lustre was perfect for the background of my snowflakes ,it looks as if they are swirling about. I also used the Retro Black Glossy Lustre to frame it all. Be sure and check out all those gorgeous papers.
