How to feather hair

I've had a lot of requests for a tutorial on how to feather hair.  I don't know about you but I learn better when I see it not read about it so I decided to make a video tutorial.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Angels and Baubles

Well another Monday is gone.  Have you uploaded any cards to the Paper Crafts call for cards?

Gift card holders

A while back I bought a bunch of gift card folder holders from ShortCuts and never used them.  Well since I'm going to a craft fair I thought it would be a good time to dig them out and decorate them.
here are some samples I made today.




The snowman is from Whimsie Doodles-Snowman Soup digi
The pencil was designed by me.
Polka dot paper-Thrift Store-October Afternoon

Season's Greetings

Well it's time to show you another CASE study challenge card.  I didn't have a bauble punch to make the 3D ornament card so I tried to create the look with a snowflake.  I inked the edges in white and added glitter.
This week's sponsor is Chris Franco, check out the CASE study challenge for inspiration and play along for a chance to win a prize.
Welcome Christina and our Dec muse Nina to the team!
