Just a quick posting to share the projects we did at Joan Fricker's (Joan's Gardens) over the weekend. Aren't they awesome! Joan is such a CRAFTY lady and an awesome Hostess!!
Isn't this little red paper sack Christmas house adorable!!! Unfortunately you can't see it in the photo but the roof has been Cuttlebugged with the Snowflake Embossing Folder and the front door and chimney were embossed with the Swirls EF.
I know she got her original idea from Barb Schram for the house and it can be created in so many different ways for different occassions. I really love the Christmas House idea!
Is this card GORGEOUS or what!!! This is actually a photo of Joan's sample. I was too busy talking and eating to get mine done ... but I do have the pieces and can put it together later. She is just SO clever ... using the Spellbinders Fleur de Lis diecut and the Martha Stewart Loop border & corner punches ... and what can I say about that awesome May Arts ribbon ... luscious!!!
Now how about this beautiful box! These photos are all from Joan's Samples. Of course I had to improvise on my box (I was running out of time ... again with the talking & eating) ... I used a different border punch and a single loop bow ... I like Joan's better!! TeeHee
THANKS SO MUCH for the fun weekend Joan ... I look forward to when I can come out and visit again with you and Jon!
Now I must get some work done!!! Not too many nice days left and since I "played" all weekend ... I'm having to catch up on some of that work that's been waiting for me to return. Thanks everyone for stopping by today ... I have my cards created for the SCS Crafty Secrets Forum Challenge (Make someone smile) and also for today's Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge. I'll post them later today once I get my photographing completed! Have a great day!!!
