Festive Friday Hop!!!!

Image
Good morning to everyone, hope you had a great Thanksgiving day with all your loved ones.  I have to say it was great to see all my family and friends yesterday, we had so much food, we has lots of left overs. The kids performed by playing the piano, the violin and dancing to hip hop music.  Well it's time for the last Festive Friday Hop for 2011 - I was not able to find my camera chord until just now - it seems I had it inside my car all along.  Well since I'm at work and not able to take a photo of my card I want to share the cards I made years ago for my family and friends.  I wanted to make a card they could enjoy year after year as an ornament.  I hope you enjoy these as well.

So at work I also recycle the backs of my desk calendar, the back cover of my writing tablets, and so on.  I was at work one day last week during my lunch break and drew a heart on some cardboard, I have an old book I'm turning into a journal, so I tored up some pages, had a Starbucks paper bag, and started making rolled paper flowers in different sizes, I remembered I had purchased an old dress pattern from a second hand store and made some flowers of that too.  I used Westcott's titanium scissors, (which I keep in my purse all the time, you never kno…

Here is my first card, now it is fall and it is starting to get pretty cold in Indiana - yesterday morning when I was leaving the house I looked at the rooftop of my house and noticed snow, then during the day while at work in Chicago - I saw snow falling outside my window.  So I figured why not make some snowflake cards, now I love glitter,but I don't like glitter all over the place specially on my face - somehow it always ends up there, so I decided to use my martha stewart ink pads in blues and added a little to the first card you see here - for the…
