Christmas Greetings

This card is made with a vintage little girl that looks like an angel, with a ringlet of holly and berries around her head. She is wearing a beautiful lace dress. I used a dot textured bazzill card stock and than added the flocked holly & berry paper to the card stock. I have antiqued the edges of the photo with Tim Holtz brown distressing ink, I added an adorable K and Co, bird with Joy written on the bottom and in the upper left hand side is a beautiful wreath with a poinsettia in the center. I have put some glossy accents around the outside of the photo and added some diamond dust for detail and a little pop. The card is 6 x 6 and is blank inside so you can add your own loving sentiment. I will be putting this card up for sale if anyone is interested, it will be $5.00. Thanks for stopping in for a visit.

Portable Sewing Machine for Crafters

This is a sew easy mini portable sewing machine with all of the accessories in a light pastel lavender shade. I have for sale this adorable little sewing machine that is still in it's original box, never opened. I cannot get this to load on my artfire site, so I am offering it to you here. I will load 3 photo's but for some reason they are blurry. The picture I am loading will be pink, but the one I have is purple (lavender). The cost of it was $30.00 on HSN, they no longer have it. I am willing to part with it for $25.00 and I will split the shipping cost of a flat rate of $12.00 to $6 for each of us. So the total cost for the buyer will be $31.00. If interested I will create an invoice on paypal for you to pay for the item. It comes fully supplied with everything you need to get started. I thought I would use it but it is obviously not going to happen. I am just to busy with other things that I haven't even had the time to remove it from the original package. I sure hope someone out there could use the cute little machine.

Black Friday

Did anyone venture out and get some good deals on Friday? I actually went to AC Moore at 5am to grab some good deals there. They had a select group of spellbinders for $10.00 from $25.00 what a deal that was. I of course grabbed what I don't have so I was happy about that. They also had their 22 oz candles on sale 5 for $10.00 and than another coupon for your entire order was an extra 30% off, so the candles cost me $1.40 each, what a deal. I also got the last 2 12x12 packs of Martha Stewart christmas paper. I was happy with that. I hope all my friends got some good deals also.

With Love on Our Anniversary Greeting Card

Attached is a beautiful flocked card requested by my neighbor for her 38th wedding anniversary. The sentiment inside is altered art, I found it in a card I received so I just retyped it and changed up the wording to fit their anniversary.

This is the second card I made at her request. I am giving her an option of which one she will prefer and the other one will be posted on artfire for sale. Thanks for taking a peek.
