It is still Tuesday! I am joining T Stands For Tuesday over at Bleubeard & Elizabeth's at Altered Book Lover. Just a quick post to show you all the birthday cards I received for my Birthday last month, most handmade by my crafty friends. I hope I included them all and didn't leave one somewhere else around the house. I tried to keep them all together. There were many different styles ; I am sure I will be CASEing (Copy and Share Everything) them. Thank you to all my crafty friends for all these lovely cards, and for the goodies they sent me too. I treasure them!
I have been busily participating in Falliday Fest on SplitcoastStampers.
Here is one of the projects we did for the Holiday Blitz tutorials part of Falliday Fest.
Lori Craig made a tutorial and included a template for this Gingerbread Garland. I decided to make it and to hang it on the bulletin board in my craft room. I will decorate it more towards Christmas. Our granddaughter will sleep in my craft room at Christmas so I thought I would decorate. Here is a link to Falliday Fest Tutorial #4 where you will find the link for the Gingerbread Garland template.
I printed the houses on Crumb Cake. Then I cut them out. I turned them over so the black line didn't show and outlined in white gel pen, until it gave out. Then I used white acrylic paint, then ended up embossing the gingerbread in craft white ink and white embossing powder. The gingerbread men were cut with a Stamping Up die from Holiday Collections, something I have had for years! Didn't use it much but thought it perfect for this garland. In fact I might add more. What do you think? There need to be more gingerbread men, right?
I am still doing more challenges for Falliday Fest. It last the rest of this week. Why don't you come join us?
That is a wrap! I hope you notice my tea cup in the first photo. I am drinking Stash Breakfast in Paris, a blend of blak teas, lavender, bergamot oil and vanilla extract. So good! Bergamot is what makes the Earl Grey so good. My sister sent me a huge assortment of Stash teas for my birthday! Even a chocolate decaf tea that is out of this world! LOL
Have a great day everyone, and I thank you so much for stopping by.
