Just Some Stuff...

These are some various projects that I have been working on...Other then Christmas cards. 

This card is something that I saw on a MPS blog post.  It's called a "spring card" because it "springs" up when it's taken out of the envelope.  It was really simple to make and I've been dying to use this paper by Basic Grey.  I use MPS Fabulous Phrases stamp set..."Sending you lots of love."  I'm giving it to my aunt who is recovering from surgery. 

This is an ornament that I recently made.  It's for the Pink By Design ornament swap.  It's not the best, but every idea that I had kept getting jacked up or wouldn't work out.  I was trying to do a sort of snow glob effect, but it didn't quite work out.  Maybe next time...

These are some gift boxes that I made using Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge.  This was one of the first cartridges that I purchased, but hardly used it.  This first one I am giving to my sister with her birthday present in it.  She loves elephants and I bought her a handmade elephant pendant.  The other one is probably going on etsy.  :)

This box held some goodies for a friend of mine.  She watched my dog for the day and overnight.  She loved it!

I just wanted to show some of the other things that I have been working on.  I will probably have plenty more Christmas cards posted soon, but for now....EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT THANKSGIVING!!!
