I've finally completed my first Christmas Tag Swap and I totally fell in love with it.

The First set is "The Twelve Days of Christmas" , once I send it in, I will have the complete verse of tags. I had 8 maids a milking. I used my crccut Country Life for the maid milking a cow and I had to make 15 tags. I discovered something about myself, I had to change each tag just a little, so it will have its own identity. So, everyone will have something unique about their tag.

The second tag, I made 15, (Twas the night before Christmas, when all thru the house not a creature was stirring not even a mouse. The stocking were hung by the chimmey with care, In hope that St. Nicholas soon would be there.

The following card is for a Blue Christmas Swap. The background paper is Bo Buuny and the stamp is Lockhart. I used Flower Soft Vintage Christmas for the greenery.

It's that time again, our Fantastic Hostess for the month (Barb) provided us a kit you would not believe, ( I think she forgot that we are making one card) Barb's kit was so much fun to open ( we had DP, brads, three types of ribbons, felt leaves, bling. buttons, and a beautiful stamp with a sentiment. We had to express who mean so much to us, I started my list and I decided that with the year that I've had and so many people that you and I know. I'm thankful for all my friends, SCS, acquaintances, and my immediate Family.

So let the games begin:

This is the second set of pictures

The miniatures houses below are no larger than 3 1/2 in tall and 3 1/2 wide. They open up and you can decorate them.

The ones you cannot open are Hallmark Seasonal Christmas ornament houses

The one below, I really love is a Modern White Leather Couch and Chair
with a cocktail table that is popular and has been in the Art Institute Modern Pieces.
The Lamp is Ceramic, painted white /gray and you can light it up, has a miniature bulb,

I did not make any of these, no way would I attempt this at this quality and level of detail.

Missing In Action

The past two months has been extremely hectic for me. My lastest adventure is the preparation for displaying my miniatures at Orland Park Library.
