Christmas Card I made for a friend of mine.

I wanted to make this card a little different than the traditional snowy, santa, angels, jingle bells card. I did throw the christmas word in there and the sheet music for the background.
After all we have lost the true meaning of christmas through out the years. Is it really all about santa, snowmen, jingle bells?

I also wanted to post one last picture. This is and will always be my #1 best friend. Everyone who knew him lost him a few years ago. I think of him everytime I look at pic of this card. He loved indians and everything indian. So this card is dedicated to him and his memory.
He will never be forgotten.
Merry Christmas Wee Pete Mckinney..I love you and we will finish the party some day...

Some cards I made.

Casket candy goodie boxes I made.

Here is a few caskets I made for halloween. I filled them with candy and gave them to a few friends of mine. I think they turned out great. I printed the template from Martha Stewarts website I do believe. lol yes I think that was where I got it. I actually ran out of black cardstock so I used white and painted them with black paint. Then I cut a skull head from a plastic gift bag I bought from walmart and wrapped some jute string around them and gave them to my friends. They loved them...

Learning this Blog world thing..

Well I started this a while back and have actually put it all on the back burner. I guess I am having more fun checking everyone else's blogs out.
I have enjoyed reading over crafters blogs and have learned quite a bit doing so.
I have entered a few sweepstakes and started a few cards for some contests but havent turned any in yet. I just get lost looking at everyone else's cards and crafts and either let the deadline go by or with all the other things going on in my life right now I just dont get the card finished to turn in. I eventually do finish them but usually after the contest is over.
I need to get a ritual going on this blog thing and post some of my crafty crafts and find my spot in the wonderful blog world.
So if you stumbled upon and read this post then thank you very much.
Happy Holidays to all!!!!!
