Card and flower

My friend, Bren made me a really cute Christmas card and I just love looking at it. I think Santa is after that bird with his golf club and the dog and cat want in because they are afraid they are next! I still have the card on my mantle and everytime I look at it, it makes me chuckle.

Bren also gave me an amaryllis for Chirstmas and told me to document it's growth so here is the first picture.

Cricket and lucky # 7 - TMTA

This is my ATC for Think Monday - Think ATC. The theme is symbols of luck. We've always considered crickets good luck and if we get one in the house, we carefully try to get them back outside but they can be really hard to catch!
The #7 is what I consider my own personal lucky number.

Prize package

I have been on the EK Success Consumer board for some time now and recently did a survey for them and they said there would be 20 people that would win a prize package. Well, Friday I came home and there was a package on my front porch. It was like Santa visited and left me a prezzie! I was so excited and thrilled to get a prezzie especially at Christmas time.
Thank you, EK Success!
Here is what I got:
There was a punch needle kit. I've never done an punch needle work before and I'm excited to find out how to do it after the holidays.
There was over 20 Jolee's stickers and other fun packages of stickers. Wahoo! A whole box of fun!
There was a fun scrapbook that has folders inside with the page protecters. I've never seen a scrapbook like this and I'm looking forward to being able to save some memorabelia in the folders.
There is a curvey cutter that interlocks apparently to do all types of shapes - circles, ovals, squares and curvey lines. I am super excited about this! I have the circle cutter and I love it!
There are Jolee Swarovski crystals (which I've alread torn into) and a package of Christmas ornaments. I love making earrings so the Swarovski crystals will be really enjoyed and the Christmas ornament will be opened this Christmas when the kids and grandson are here.
And last, there is a Martha Stewart collector's box. It is a hinged shadow box frame that you put something special into. Hmm! Wonder what an altered artist can put in there! Hmm! All sorts of possibilities, aren't there?
I'm going to have fun for a long time using all those goodies!

Christmas star - TMTA

This is my ATC for Think Monday - Think ATC. The theme is a Christmas character. My character is the Christmas star. I did it on Black Magic Cardstock and sanded it.
Black Magic cardstock has color on one side and black on the other side. It is great to sand and emboss.
The city scene is hand cut and it has blue stickles. The star is punched and treated to gold stickles.
