Things I've done in 2009

Here are a few things I've done in 2009 that never made it onto my blog before.

a very simple valentine
I actually scraplifted this idea - it was just too cute to pass up. I thought it would be super simple but it was a whole lot more work than I realized.

Silly christmas card I made for the friend that loaned me this stamp set. It's paper pieced (actually done in 2008)

Halloween card made for a swap. It opens on the paper where the eyes are

Another simple card

My Dad's birthday was on Thanksgiving in 2009

Card made for Stephanie's birthday. It's a recessed window card.

Paper bag card

HURRAY! I am finally updating my blog lol
Today I spent a good part of the afternoon working on a card for the PaperCrafts message board Jan 3rd weekly challenge. Silly me tried out my new Fun flock I got in my stocking from Santa. What a disaster! So after that epic failure I tried another idea. The challenge was to create a winter card. I had seen something a few weeks ago that used a paper bag to make a card but couldn't find it again to get the measurements. I had to totally wing it. The hot cocoa packet fits inside the opening and the ribbon when closed holds it all together. So without further ado here is my card for today.
