Christmas Magic 2011

This is my mantle for Christmas 2011. I knitted the 9 doilies hanging off the edge, I also made all the stockings. The first 3 are counted cross-stitch and I won blue ribbons in the fair for 3 years for their entry. I added the garland this year for more color but they did not have dark red, it still loos good! Hope everyone has a safe and Merry

Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Happy Fall Y'all

I wanted to post at least another picture of my Fall Mantle for 2011. I bought the leaf swags at Big Lots @ 30% off and layed them over the mantle and attached them to a grapevine wreath

from Joann's (40% off). Love to decorate at a fraction of the cost. The Turkey I made this year and it is plastic canvas. The leaves hanging from mantle I made a few years ago. Got the maple and oak leaf template from HGTV and cut them out using doubled-sided cardstock from DCWV 12 x 12 Fall Cardstock Pad. Hope you had a good T-day. See ya again with Christmas Post.

Hogs & Kisses

Here is my card for the Heart Blog Hop. The pigs and sentiment is from T3170 Hogs and Kisses
Vintage (retired) from TAC of Course. I used Dotted swiss and Block Hearts Cuttlebug folders on one piece of card stock. Cut it out with #1 Nesties. Ran the scorebug down sides of card and added Red Stardust pen. I used clor pencil but not mineral oil to smooth. May do again with Bic pens. I drew the dot-dash outline around nestie, really did not need it. I may have borrowed layout from somewhere. Still love this card.
