Sneak Peek coming soon!

I am very slowly getting my Christmas cards going for this year. I will have to make a few different designs, because my original design is much more time intensive than I had originally planned. Just for fun, I thought I would put out a sneak peek at what I'm working on....I will have it up for you tomorrow, at least that is my plan. ;)

Past Cards that finally found homes...

 I had to get pictures of these before I gave them away. Sorry for the table full of spices and such, we were still waiting for our new pantry door rack to arrive. The above card was done with colored pencils (before I met Copic markers) and the one below was part of a swap that challenged the use of eyelets. Two wonderful people received these cards, I had a really hard time giving them away, they are among my all time favorites.

Everything I design these days seems to be work related....

We needed some samples at work with these tubes that weren't girly, our other sample was very girly. I love these swords I created with the Silhouette machine and these long skinny tubes called "Tube- Magic Wand". This first one is more of a plain sword done with black tie bazzill bling cardstock and a sheer silver ribbon wrapped around the rest. With an snug cap, it is the perfect place for tiny treats. What boy wouldn't love to receive one, it would be a great birthday party favor!
This second version is more like how I envision a pirate sword, very swash-buckling in my mind. I designed the handle with my Silhouette machine, the long skinny tubes called "Tube- Magic Wand" and some gold cardstock. Aaaarr!
I love my Silhouette, it is a fabulous machine and has software anyone can use.
Please feel free to leave comments, I love to hear what others think.
