hand made cards+ one from UK

I mentioned I was making a few cards for friends and then made just a few little do dads and wanted to show you a few at a time.
Last year I made some great little cards , if i do say myself and gave them all away and wish I had a picture of them so I could do it again.

Anyway here is a few like I said. This one has my Silent Night ribbon on it

Since blue is my favorite color had to make some blue ones

the glitter isn't showing up good in this picture. I think I have my camera out of adjustment

This one I really like I tore a page out of Victoria bliss magazine and folded it back and fort and glued some glitter on and put the glitter snow flake on with glue

I bought this Holiday Hugs cloth ribbon at a store that went out of business last year, they had the most interesting things

This one a friend gave me the idea , it's a 3-D card. I glued on the pearls on the trees branches,put the rhinestone star on top,  put glitter on the ladies dress ( who looks like Mamie Eisenhower) doesn't she? my friend said this ,  run some glitter ribbon down one side. The card opens and says Merry Christmas


on this one I have some ribbon that says Silent Night with wire on the outer edges so cut the wire off and just used the wording , a music sheet and a paper lace napkin

I am still working on more but wanted to share a few. I am in a card exchange and can't wait to show the ones I recieve
     I was in a card exchange over at It's A Very Cherry World and my partner was Hope from The United Kingdom and here is the card she sent me. It looks like a Tim Holtz card , just perfect . I really this she did an execellent job, You can check out all the other fancy cards.

  2. These hand mades are so much more special than any store bought, I don't care is they cost $10.00. I am emailing my cards, can't believe it, me who protest the new fangled thangs so much. But it's the best I can do. Love ya. Richard and Sissy Dog from My old Historic House.

  3. Such pretty cards. They look sweet and vintagey.:)

  15. Girlfriend you bet we'll hit that Goodwill! And all my other fave shops too *winks* Ya know your comment reminded me of that Dolly Parton song "Coat of Many Colors" It could be kinda pitiful if it wasn't lined in the most luxurious silk satin.... And that stuff has always been expensive! It's kind of like a surprise only you (the wearer) would know about. And because it's reversible you could wear the "rich" side out if you wanted *winks* I just love that it actually fits me! You know how tiny those olden clothes can be!*winks* Vanna

  16. What detail you put into these cards. Love the idea of a handmade Christmas card. Hope you're enjoying every bit of the holiday season.
