What a difference...

Here are some before and after pictures of my ribbon. I won a ribbon organzer from Kelly at
Lovin' the Life I Color! Thanks Kelly! This is SO much better! I had such a mess with my ribbon and now it's right at my fingertips! I love it! And it's so cute to look at!

Card class Monday!

I get together with a group of ladies from the local senior center and we put together cards! It's so much fun and I think they all enjoy it. Last month we made Christmas favorite thing to make. And I didn't get my fill, so I had to make another. We're going to try our hand at watercoloring! I had this gorgeous image (I bought it used, so I don't know what company to credit). I loved coloring the image, but I had a hard time putting together the card. My 11 year old doesn't much care for the blue background. Hmph! But I didn't know what else to do with it!

The holly leaf is a punch and the berries are knots in a little piece of red ribbon. I like the way that looks.

We're also going to make some Christmas gift tags! Love those too. I used a lot of punches, made shrinky dink buttons, and colored the large chipboard snowflake with a reinker. We're going to emboss the snowflake on the blue tag and sponge. It should be a lot of fun!

Winner, winner, winner!

Okay...are you guys all ready to see what this creation ended up being??? She is a mermaid for an "undersea" tree that is auctioned for a rundraiser in Seattle. Isn't it amazing? I am in awe of the "shipwreck" tree topper and I'm thrilled with how the mermaid looks. Do you see the little sign accompanying it toward the bottom left of the tree? It says "special thanks to Denise" at the bottom. Wow! This tree is amazing. I'll include a couple of close ups for you.

Then we have the left hand and right hand. Isn't it so cool how they did that?
And the tail...the beautiful tail. I was very happy with how this turned out. And you can see the base and the aquarium. Love it. I hope it raises a lot of money.

Thank you to everybody that guessed. I know it was a hard one...who would have thought a mermaid and especially one on a tree that had to do with Christmas? CLAUDIA, you're the winner. Awesome guessing. I need your mailing address to send out some goodies!
