Christmas Catch Up

 Christmas is all packed away for another year here but I received some surprises at Christmas time that I wanted to share.  The framed fairy quote is from a local friend, Carol (no blog).  The sheet music under the glass is French.  Where in the world did she find THAT! The lettering is on top of the glass so it has wonderful depth.  Here is the funny thing, she doesn't consider herself a crafter.  Well, me thinks she is mistaken.  Thank you, Carol.  It has a place of honor on my desk.
 This beautiful card is from Cathy at ma vie trouvee.  She always uses unexpected colors and yet it says "Christmas".  I love those rhinestones and that creativity!  Thank you, Cathy!
This gorgeous card is from Maureen at Victorian Studio.  It has about eight different layers giving it a wonderful dimensional quality.  She uses her amazing accumulation of tools and knows just what do with each one.  She has me Jonesing to learn about Cuttlebug and Sizzix and Cricut.  Thank you for your inspiration, Maureen!

What lovely gifts you received.

I too would love a Sizzix, Cuttlebug, Cricut or Silhouette. Now that my creative space is ready (my inaugural project was to hem a dress for KC who is going to a wedding in San Francisco this weekend) I have the space and I am leaning toward a Silhouette.

Happy Creating!

Such lovely gifts. I agree that Carol is a crafter. I have a pillow in my sunroom with that quote on it. You have some very nice friends to send such treasures your way!!
