Tis the Season to be Crafty

>> Monday, December 5, 2011

 I am feeling rather accomplished today, even though looking back over the day I really did not accomplish that much.  I am feeling accomplished not because I check many things off of my to-do list, but because I checked off the things that I have been avoiding for some time, like cleaning my house, making phone calls, organizing photos, doing laundry, and updating my blogs (Project 365) ... which leads me to why I am here in the first place. I have a card to share with you. Actually it represents a stack of cards that I made, but I only realized after I had written and addressed them all, that I should have taken a photo of the entire stack. It looks much more dramatic that way. But I forgot, so I guess I will have to skip the dramatics for this afternoon.

Stack might just be a bit of an exaggeration. I made six of these little cards, each one a little bit different since I made a point of using my scrap basket and I did not seem to have enough of everything to make them all the same. It just adds to the handmade feel I think! I had so much fun with these cards, especially after I discovered that my red, glittery glue sticks worked perfectly for Rudolph`s nose. It was going to be just any plain old reindeer up until then.

Made this card with a few challenges in mind. DYSU: Ribbons, and Case Study!
