Christmas in March??

Standard

Well, it’s technically the next day now, so why not just finish and then I can concentrate my day tomorrow on just doing cards, or working on my next smash book….yup, sounds like a plan.  Okay, so two more posts to go…..sorry for those that have followed me with their email….ooppsss. 

I’ve had this long string of tiny little Christmas lights hanging on a wire rack in my craft space for some time now.  I kept thinking there must be someway to incorporate them into a card…..then I was looking through one of my crafting magazines last weekend and….there it was….a card using little mini Christmas lights!!!  So a Christmas card in March it was!  My friend Lauren over at Laurenscraft has been cranking out Christmas cards like crazy all year.  She’s determined to have all her Christmas cards done by the time she needs to send them out this year so she’s not scrambling to get them all done at the last-minute.  Great idea I think!!

 

 

A nice CAS card…..some shimmering white cardstock pop-dotted onto a white card base, with a white doily attached.  A circle cut from the same shimmering paper has been stamped and embossed in silver with the word JOY.   (I had tried to stamp and emboss on the doily….ya, big mistake. Did you know these doilies have about a thousand little tiny indentations on them that just like to grab hold of the silver embossing powder.)  So, like I tell my friends when we get together to get inky,  it’s never a mistake….it’s an opportunity…..sooo, out with another piece of white shimmery cardstock to cover up the silver embossing mess!!  Attach the tiny Christmas lights and you have a Christmas card done up in no time at all….I wonder if the rest of my Christmas cards will go together this easy??  lol

Well, one more post and then I’m done.  Aren’t you all glad I don’t get this far behind all the time??!!  Thanks for checking my little piece of the web out……till next time!

 

Huggss,

Yvonne  😉

About mycraftingtherapyroom

My name is Yvonne Gebauer and I'm a cardmaker and have just entered the amazing world of Mixed Media and am LOVING it!. I'm a wife, a mother to two grown boys, and a grandmother to 5 amazingly beautiful grandchildren which I have to say is really all it's cracked up to be and more. I work full time and am really starting to think that work is getting in the way of life!! I have a large crafting room and I'm my happiest when I have a group of friends get together in this room and just have a blast. Every once in a while we actually create something! Or, when I get a chance to have one of my grandchildren over to just let them play and create what they want with what I have in my stash.....which is allot. My craft room is my therapy room of sorts. My place to go and just be......
