Altered Christmas Cards

scan0003 scan0004

I have been working on altering some Christmas cards.  This is so much fun, just try.  I start by  cutting elements from old cards, divide into categories such as borders, verses, pictures of angels, santas, etc. and arranging on blank cards.  Once I like an arrangement I glue everything to the card and if needed I ink ,chalk or tear edges. I always have the gold, copper and silver paint pens and edge the card, elements, or envelopes, this gives the card a finished appearance.

I plan to try this with all occasion cards.  What do you think, would people like to receive  a card of this type?  I suppose you would pick and choose who get these cards.  Please let me know what you think and if you make some let me know.

Jack and Granny

Jack is visiting with Grandma and Grandpa and we are making cookies tonight.  I am sure they will turn out very good as we have made them before and they were delicious.P1010001

I am still learning to insert picture within the blog.  I had worked for some time trying to do this and am anxious to see how it looks.
