Welcome to another great Festive Friday Hop - make sure you started at the beginning by stopping by Terri's blog - http://www.terrisproul.blogspot.com/.
Now I know is summer, but you need to get started early if you want to make Christmas cards to give away, you don't want to have to go and purchase a box of cards - I love giving out cards that I make to my family and friends, come and see what everyone has done this week.
I'm not really able to walk around much right now - having problems with a bad knee and my craft room is upstairs so I have a small space in my living room where I get to craft a bit. I just got my first cricut and got this new cartridge - so I was playing around, I have never used any machine like this one so it was fun. Well I decided to use one of the flower napkin rings to make my card.

|Black beauty - this is my favorite - love the twist and how these crystal beads sparkle -|
|I decided to use the silk cord as the base and use one of Beadalon's gold wire to wrap the swarovski crystals around the silk cord, these and the bracelet on top are mine to enjoy!!!|
|this bracelet can be wrapped around more than once on the wrist or ankle or can be worn around the neck.|

I love making jewelry, I love creating with different products, I guess I have a creative addiction for which there is no cure! I love to wear jewelry and even more when I know is something I made, because I know I will not run into anyone, anywhere wearing the same thing I have. I discovered duct tape for crafting over a year ago, ever since I have been using it for many things. From wallets to flowers, to using it to make a holiday card instead of using paper, also to make rings, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings. Today I want to share the latest ring I've created -
|I love how this ring looks on!!! The smaller the flower the harder it is to make, but I enjoy the challenge, specially when it comes out the way I want it.|
|I used Mod Podge Dimensional Magic to adhere the ring to the ring base - testing to see how good it holds - but might end up using hot glue just to make sure it stays on ( I already know the hot glue works great)|
Welcome to another exciting Festive Friday Hop. Make sure you start over at Terri's blog http://
For this week's card I wanted to use duck tape - I have an addiction to crafting with duck tape and I used the candy cane tape along with the gold tape. I used Tim's green moss distress ink stamp to make the tree, and Staz-On black stamp to do the trunk of the tree. I strung green and red seed beads on green and gold Beadalon wires and taped down the edges with the gold duck tape. I used mod podge in glitter to the entire white area around the stamped tree - I loved the fact that the ink from the distress ink stamp bled a little - it gave the white paper a little bit of green tint with a sparkle from the mod podge. I used regular mod podge to add some white sequins and in the center I added a tiny red seed bead. The clear sequin picks up the green color from the stamp and the colors from the glitter. To finish it up I used a crystal gold pearl as a star and strung some gold beads on red wire that was wrapped around the card over the gold duck tape.
|Here is a close up of the tree|
I just wanted to make a different card - I have the paper and stamps and other paper crafting products I could have used - but I just wanted to do something totally different. I love when you move the card around, the beads strung on the wires move around -
