Well, we survived Christmas!!!! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. I want to take this opportunity to thank all of you who sent me cards, surprises, and treats! Your are all so wonderful! "The boys" each received 16 wrapped Christmas gifts throughout the day from various friends and family members. They received more gifts than anyone in the family! LOL They were so exhausted by the end of the day. Such spoiled brats! They were even sent several Christmas cards (some from you guys!) LOL Thank you for including them.
OK, this will be the last of the Christmas projects. I had to save these because I didn't want my Mom or sister seeing them before I gave the boxes to them. I made them each a magic box with a surprise scene inside. The boxes on the outside are exactly the same, however the figure in the scene is different. Here is my Mom's:
Here is my Mom's box on the inside:
This is an ornament that I picked up at Michael's specifically for this box. Isn't he cute?!? I love how his little scarf looks as if it is blowing in the wind. I used a piece of Styrofoam that I cut and molded to look like a snowy berg. It is covered in glitter and really sparkles in real life.
Here is the inside of my sisters:
Again, another ornament like the first, but a different pose. Used same Styrofoam as a base and covered it in glitter like the first one. They really loved them and I really love how they turned out.
The last thing I would like to show you is a sympathy card. A very sweet lady here in the neighborhood (the one that I scrapped with for over 5 hours) lost her dear, sweet Father right before Christmas. I wanted to be sure she knew how very sorry I was for her loss. Here is the card I've made for her:
(HERE) was way smaller. The following pictures show how it opens:
You can write a message on the panel that is resting on my thumb. This really makes a great card. I'm just sorry my first was a sympathy card.
Well, that's about it for this post. Before I forget, here is the "Pic of the Week":
Well, I guess this is where I say "I'll see you all next year!" LOL I'm such a dork!
Happy New Year To All Of You From My World To Yours!
