Big Shot Money Holders

I am finally back somewhat. My computer was beyond repair so I am now using my laptop (thankfully I had one). I had to get some software loaded and some new drivers installed, etc. (it uses MS Vista instead of XP) in order to get my software to work properly but it finally seems to be working now. Thanks so much for hanging with me while I underwent this ordeal of losing my computer, files and software. I also now have new ways of backup! : )

I trust you have all have had a busy Christmas season and hopefully an enjoyable one! Next comes New Years, and here in Oklahoma, we have two bowl games to watch: Oklahoma State Univ. vs Oregon St. tomorrow night and the University of Oklahoma vs. Florida on Jan. 8 for the National Championship. Throw in the New Year's party and New Year's Day parade and looks like we'll still be busy awhile! : )

On to some more fun stuff: stamping! I needed some money/gift card holders for some of my gift-giving last week. I had seen something similar somewhere several weeks ago (and I've forgotten where!) so I whipped four of these out quickly on Christmas eve day. (If it was your blog, post in the comments so I can give you proper credit, please!).

I used the Big Shot with the largest Scalloped Circle Die to cut out the red cardstock with the stamped image strip and olive strip attached. The image was quickly colored in with markers and some highlights and swirlies were added with a glitter pen. A tab punch at the top provides a hanger for the silver cord. I cut out additional scalloped circles, cut them in half and adhered them to the back of the circles, forming a pocked to hold a gift card or gift of money. My granddaughters thought they were very cute and kept them to hang on their trees again in the future. : ) I had other ideas for decoration but my time was very limited so I went with these as you see them.

Stamps: Holiday Lineup
Inks: Black Staz-On; SU markers of various colors
Paper: Real Red, Old Olive, Whisper White
Accessories: Big Shot, lg. Scalloped Circle die, Round Tab Punch, brad, silver cord.

I have a number of new things to show you in the next few days... new stamps, paper and punch, so come back soon! Again, thanks for sticking with me and visiting again! I hope to post regularly again now!

Happy New Year (almost),
