It is indeed Christmas at my house. I received the 12 Days of Christmas ATCs from Wendy! If you remember, I signed up a few months ago to participate in this ATC Swap and my assignment was to create 12 "A Patridge in a Pear Tree" ATCs. I made my cards and sent them to Wendy as did the other 11 artists. (I love saying, artists) Wendy sort of made an accordian-like book out of the cards and packaged them in a beautiful box. I've decided to celebrate how awesome these cards are by showing one each day. I know, I know, the 12 Days of Christmas don't actually begin until Christmas Day, but I cannot wait! So, let's go!

As promised, here is the ATC I sent DeeDee for November's Treasure Barn Swap:
I combined a sort of Thanksgiving theme along with a personal touch with the little Sioux girl as DeeDee grew up in Sioux City, Iowa! I hope she liked it!
Two more things to show you this Saturday night. First, behold, my very first yo-yo!
A big shout out goes to Bonnie for this flower. I've actually wanted to make yo-yos forever, but didn't realize just how easy they are until I watched Bonnie's video! Thanks Bonnie!
Last, but not least, here is my first card wallet made with the Valori Wells pattern. Remember to SIGN UP and you can win the pattern!
I should have inserted a few cards before taking the picture so you could see the pockets a bit better, but you get the idea right? Anyway, the pattern was pretty easy to follow and this didn't take long to put together. I used alphabet stamps and fabric ink to stamp "Yum" and I drew the frog with fabric markers. I glued the googly eyes and sewed the tiny (extremely, annoyingly small) black beads on to represent a fly. What do you think?
Have a fantastic weekend!
