PaperCrafter's Corner: Magazine Monday #127

     Right here you are supposed to see PaperCrafter's Corner inspiration photo for week #127.  Try as I might I can't copy it and paste here.  I rebooted, upgraded Mozilla, upgraded Yahoo and still can't get it to work.  The hot link works, though, so please check out this great site if you haven't before. 
     The magazine cover shows an assortment of pretty, vintage Christmas ornaments.  That's the part I jumped on.  I have an assortment of classic Christmas characters.  Almost at the last minute, I needed something to put gift cards in.  I made these cute boxes with the Winter Paver Favor Boxes svg files from My Scrap Chick.  I hid the gift cards under an assortment of Hershey kisses.  I used a lot of glittery, blingy stuff, but I rarely get photos that show that fun stuff. 
     Thanks for looking!

PaperCrafter's Corner: Magazine Monday #126

     I am finally finishing up a few Christmas projects!  I packed up my supplies and took them with me to Stanford last week where Hubby had a TAVR procedure, a Transarterial Aortic Valve Replacement.  He had the choice of having open heart surgery locally or going to Stanford and participating in a trial in which the aortic valve is replaced via a femoral artery.  Chest cracked or arteries poked?  He chose the latter.  The procedure was done last Tuesday.  He was released Thursday and went to church this morning! 
     So in that whirlwind, I didn't have time to sit long enough to do any crafting!  :o)  But having our calendar cleared gave me time to play along with PCC's Magazine Monday this weekend.     I'm making cards for the sweet ladies who clean our home every other week.  I had cut the greeting out with the Cricut before we left, but took inspiration from the magazine cover to put it together.
My printed paper is similar to the gift wrapping the man is carrying, I have a bold title and a red border, Christmas colors.  Inside I used Wink of Stella on the "gracias," but that's hard to see.
     So glad to be back in the mix.  I hope I can start playing along more.  Babysitting DGD Tuesday through Friday, only leaves me Saturday to play.  Sunday is busy and Monday, too late.  DIL's schedule should change after the first of the year, and I'll have Friday and Saturday again.  Yay!  Merry Christmas to all!
