My Christmas cards this year were fairly simple but fun. I'm a Santa fan and even have a small collection, mostly ornaments, so they were Santa inspired. I always try to make them Santa related. Here is a sample but it wasn't the final version. I popped the star and the beard and mustache up on the cards I sent out, and added a bit more sparkle. I used three different kinds of washi tape on the bottom but the belted looking tape was may favorite. But, I sent them all out....all 60 of them!
Yesterday my sister, husband and I went to a very large and busy antique show. There were so many beautiful antiques and many, many crafted and repurposed items. It was a one day show with over 150 vendors. It did inspire me though and I have many ideas swimming around in my head!
So, I did work on some thank you notes today and a tag for the Tim Holtz 2016 January tag challenge (below), and that was as far as I made it. I didn't have the fail tape that Tim used in his project so I improvised with...well, foil! It doesn't hold distress ink very well, even when I tried to heat dry it. I also don't have Distressed Paints yet but I think it came out fairly well!
Back to the grind tomorrow and hopefully a few creative nights this week! Happy crafting!
