Merry Christmas

Morning Peeps, have been very busy this holiday season but I wanted to drop by and wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Year's.  The star I made below in my last post was a big hit at the Christmas party Saturday night at my little sister's.  We had to have a short demo before I left for home Sunday morning, lol.  It was alot of fun.  You should see the little tree I won.  That's for another post.  I can show you the ATC for the December club this month.  I had originally taken a sneek peek photo but never got it posted.  Anyway, here's a look at the finished one.

The wreath is, of course, Tim Holtz, as is the sentiment. the candy cane I made out of sculpey clay and the little cutie in the middle of the wreath is my daughter at about 6-7 years old.  The "snow" around the outside edge is from Close to my Heart.  You just basically write with it and then you heat it with your heat tool and it bubbles up like that, pretty cool.  I think it's called liquid applique.  Then I just added some red stickles over the gold embossed sentiment.  The theme was "Christmas with a Twist" so I just used the candy cane as my twist., lol!

Here's a shot of the little cottonball trees I made for the two gals I work with.  They are made out of styrofoam cones, 3" squares of fabric, cottonballs and 3/4" straight pins.  You just fold your fabric over the cottonball and pin it to the cone in a jagged manner overlapping the layer before.  I put a little star on top of one and a round angel on the other one.  Then I added little streamers of ribbon with a bow tied up at the top.  They turned out pretty cute as well.  A lady that lives next door to my father in Mesa, AZ had one on her coffee table when I was there a couple of years ago and I thought it was so cute, I asked her if I could disect it to see how it was made and she was all for it, lol.

Hope you all have a wonderful Merry Christmas!!!
