I can see the light.....





I can finally "see the light at the end of the tunnel"! I finished my Secret Santa Project and made five cards this past week. I had a few "ups and downs" but everything finally started to come together for me. I wished that I could have spent more time on the computer but there are just too many things going on around my house right now. We are having some work done around the house,and everything is a mess right now and I'm trying to make cards.....lol Since the work on our home isn't extensive, everything should be done before Christmas and I can't wait for everything to be in it's proper place around here.

Due to my lightning issues, I made a picture box. It very rustic looking right now since I wasn't sure if it would work or not, however from my viewpoint the pictures do look brighter. I will see how everything turns out when I download the pictures.

All of the stamps are from Papertrey Ink and the sentiments are a mixture of MFT and Papertrey Ink. Cardstocks are Papertrey Ink White, Cut cardstock shimmer Red, Green and Black. Inks are StazOn Black and Prismacolor Pencils and OMS. The embellishments are Red Pearls, Stickles and the ribbon is from Michaels. On the X-mas Card with the tree stamp, I applied paper piercing (Ornare) and I used my Spellbinders die cutting machine for matting.

Hi Malieta! Your cards are fabulous and the pictures are brighter. They're very pretty! Great job.

Just an FYI. I use an OTT light and use scrapbook paper as a backdrop. JoAnns is selling an OTT light for $29.99 this Friday only and for that price, it's very low cost. Typically OTT lights run over $50 at a minimum. OTT lights retain the true colors of your cards rather than distorting them or giving them a yellow hue.
