Christmas Pennants Revealed!

As promised here are the spoiler pictures of the Christmas Pennants I made for the swap on the All Things Tim Yahoo Group.

I had such a good time creating these pennants. My creative muse was working overtime last week and I couldn't be happier in the way they turned out. I hope the recipients like them as well.

The swap was a 10 for 10. I made 12 for I am keeping one, and Sandy our host said we could make an extra one if we wish and she would send them to Tim Holtz.

I made them in sets of 3 using different papers for each set.

Embellished them with vintage postcards, mini Christmas ornaments and rosettes I made using Tim's die

Which one will you get? That's up to Sandy...:)

First off over at Linda's Blog Studio L3 we are up to week 19 in the
This week the challenge was Extreme Masking. This challenge seemed kind of intimidating but after jumping into it I found out that I love it....!

Making it Spooky was an easy challenge for I love everything to do with Spooky and Scary and I think this tag is just that....

Anything But A Card!!!

Thats the challenge this week over at Simon Says Stamp and Show. For my daughters 24th birthday I wanted to say so many things that I knew just a card wouldn't do.
Thats why I created this Tag book for her made out of a manila folder and filled with sentiments that I wanted to say. It works perfect for this challenge for it is indeed anything but a Card!!

More Cruise Goodies

Today the mail man brought more wonderful goodies from Eileen Bellomo. She also went on the Canada & New England Cruise with Tim Holtz.
Eileen was generous enough to send me some actual goodies from one of Tims workshops, a Handmade card and a great ATC that she made. I love the Statue of Liberty holding a Distress Pad!
Its fantastic as are all the things you sent. Thanks so much of thinking of me. You ladies are spoiling me rotten.

Well I was already rotten but you know what I mean, :)
