Here's a card for my Brother - in - Law's birthday on Christmas Day.
Very simple but I think it says it all, lol.

These flowers are made with the Organza Rose Petals by Wilton, I got mine at JoAnn Fabrics but I'm sure they're available in many fabric/craft stores and come in a variety of colors. The middles are from a garland of summer flowers that I got at a local craft store on close out for 80% off! In other words almost nothing. I cut all the flowers from the garland and stuffed them in a zip lock bag and threw away the rest. Since then I've looked at the bag a lot and wondered what on Earth I was going to do with all these flowers. Well, tonight I figured it out! See if you wait long enough everything has a usefulness.

My first video where I've tried to show how I created something so hang in there with me, comments are much appreciated! I decided to join the Flower Swap at Your Paper Pantry for January. The theme is tea-dyed and I sat and played tonight and came up with these ruffled petal flowers.This will be the first time I've swapped flowers and I must say I hesitated joining because of the gorgeous creations I've seen the others create. But then I decided I can't learn unless I try and receiving flowers from others is the best way. Up close and personal you can see hands on what and how they created theirs. If you've not checked out Your Paper Pantry do so today it's a great place to swap, chat, learn and grow your craft (or addiction as the case may be).

At Your Paper Pantry we could join a Secret Santa Swap to buy for in secret for another YPP member. I got Barb. She sent me a note this week and told me she had a little something coming for me. It arrived today! WOW what can Isay but thank you thank you my friend. She sent so many wonderful crafting things, I'm in Heaven with all my new playthings. YPP is a wonderful group of crafters that share through Swaps, Videos, Classes and Chat. Check them out I'm so glad I found them!

For those of you that don't live in Utah or Idaho you probably aren't familiar with Roberts Crafts. For me it's less than a mile away and too often feeds my paper addiction. DCWV and Robert's have teamed together and Roberts is debuting a huge aisle full of their product. Because of this they are having a Fantastic giveaway worth over $450! Check out their BLOG to see how to enter and since they are mailing the prize you have as much of a chance as I do. Good luck. (Hurry entries end 12:00am (MST) on Monday, December 6, 2010)
