Cards and a can

Made these cards for my husband's birthday last week.

We all get together at my parents' home on Christmas Eve (4 siblings, husbands, wives and 10 grandchildren). Have been busy altering cans. Made these cans for the children in the family. Personalised them a bit by placing each child's initial on "their" can. Put a bag of candy in each can.

Bits and pieces

I have been busy with all sorts of 'little' things. There is so much inspiration out there it is quite overwhelming. I want to try it all but as the saying goes,"so much to do, so little time".

Here are some of the bits and pieces I've had fun making.

Made the petite version of the Around Town Tote with my own version of a poinsettia (love those flowers at this time of year. They just make me feel so happy!)

Found this tutorial for making these paper poinsettias.
Loved these tags that Bonnie made so I had to make them too. She also provides a great tutorial.

Saw a card on Dawn's blog that I loved. So I used the same colours and some of the elements to make my own.Thanks to everyone for all the great inspiration. Love this hobby.
