Here is my first Christmas card(non-traditional colors) and my entry for SSC it had to have a tag on it! I love this TAC set Peace and the tag is a retired set also TAC. I used versamark for background and TAC Ink All-American Blue(retired). DCWV paper for the wing, tag and inner circle cut w/Nesties. The dove is stamped on inside of card and circle cut out of front. This may be my card for Christmas this year. I usually make 50. Better start now and look for more of the blue paper or may replace with dark blue circle or even white. How did I do? Have a great week!!

I Love this cause it is an original idea of mine. Anything but a card is the Challenge at SSC and mine is a writing set. Front has a tag attached for gift-giving. Top inside has a strip of butterflies
holding the envelopes. Strip has a velcro tab at bottom.

Paper below is perforated at top for
easy removal. The butterfly stamp is a retired set from TAC, but one of my favorites. I used resist and rainbow ink on glossy cardstock. You can't see it but the butterflies on tag and envelope strip are embossed with white and Kaleidascope EB Powders.
I hope you like this today!
Have a Good Week!!!

Halloween is coming...
I am getting a head start with this Flying Monkeys Wall Thingy! I saw it in a catalog and said I can totally make this and for alot less than $7.99 plus shipping. You can see the original @ where they have alot of Halloween Stuff "Barb" and other holidays also.
No stamping on this one but the ink used was TAC Sunset & Seaweed. Black MS Cardstock from Michaels 18 x18 sheet 1/2 0ff $1.99. It's heavy but does not bleach well. I am looking for Black cardstock that bleaches out real light/ Any Ideas? the striped paper on shoes is DCWV also purple and yellow cardstock DCWV. black wire, eyelets in my stash and cardboard from My Toms' Postage Stamp purchases off e-bay! Burnt Umber ink used on edges and surface to age. White computer paper 8-1/2 x 14 put thru computer and used Curls MT font. I took the picture outside for better light. It is hanging on my dining room wall. Well what do ya think??
