I know today is almost over but somehow I lost track of my days this week. I think it was because the staff and students had Monday off for one of the Jewish holidays and although I (and the rest of the 12 month employees) had to work that day, when they came back on Tuesday it felt like a Monday.
I knew that my son and daughter-in-law's anniversary was Friday so I prioritized their card knowing that it would have to be mailed by Wednesday to get to them in time.
And I had my Jingle Belles card all planned out and started even, thinking when I came home from work on Tuesday that it was Monday, so I had 2 more days to finish it and get it posted before the deadline. Only this morning, the two days later, when I woke up and realized that today was actually Thursday and not Wednesday I was pretty annoyed at myself for not posting this by 6 last night because it was done.
The theme was "bells" and that is a bell sewn onto the makeshift ribbon hat that I created for this die cut snowman. I used an embossing folder that looks like falling snow and highlighted those raised dots with a glitter gel pen. The snowman is created from 3 of those swirly dies. The buttons are actually button brads.
Gathering some ribbons with some quick stitches I was able to create a hat and scarf. Oh Jingle Belles, I'm so sorry that I missed posting this. But I am glad that I got another Christmas card done.
Monday afternoon I also worked on a couple other quick cards. Here is one of them using a Unity Stamp on a 4x4 card. I added the orange glitter ribbon with the brown glitter ribbon bow.
I like that 4x4 size and I think I might concentrate on creating some more of these.
