Victorian Christmas Week Continues

Hi Everyone~

First and foremost, I want to say that I have been completely blown away by your angel stories that keep coming into my email.

I just completed this blog button and header for the very talented June of Junibears Jottings. I created them spotlighting a piece of her digital art with the cat....If you would like to go and say "hi" to June, I know that she'd LOVE to hear from you. Her work is breathtaking.

If any of you are in need of blog headers or buttons, just contact me through my email. Now, onto my latest project!!

I purchased a house-shaped chipboard book at Michael's Arts and Crafts...Then, I added scrapbook papers to each side of the pages...

And, of course, lots of lace and embellishments were added. This book happens to be for my granddaughter, Dara.

If you would like to make one, they are super-fun, although time-intensive.

I used graphics from Dezinaworld and you can purchase all of these graphics on one sheet--yay!! You can use them for numerous Christmas projects, so how neat is that?

And here's the best part--Dara's birthday is on Christmas, so this is a birthday book!

Thank you so much for visiting and if you would like to enter my giveaway, just scoot on down 2 posts and sign up!!!

Love your creations!

I love that button, sooooo cool! last week I pulled all kinds of collage goodies out to play with. So far a few tags is all, but i am enjoying the process again! It seems I go in stages with everything I do. I'm thinking a little more focus may be in order! t. xooxox

Hi Cindy, love what you have done with the little house booklets you have done some altering to them and this is what I love best about creating. Oh how I love the holidays being able to let new items inspire a new design style to decorate a tree with or our creative side of creating different crafted gifts.

How is Ralph doing? It looks as if you have it all planned out and your designing is still moving forward, is he spending a lot more time around the home? If so get him crafting with you, in fact get him to make something you can post about, how cool would that be to share with all of us!

Have a beautiful weekend letting it inspire some calm.

Cindy, I am not a fan of Victorian at all but you make even that look good to me.
That cat in a suit is unreal. I remember such art from one of my children's English books from that era. You did great. I'm sure June is pleased.

Dearest Cindy,

Thank you for showing everyone my wonderful button and header you created for me. I am so pleased with it. I am loving my Cat Family at the moment.

The little house Birthday Book you've created for Dara is so special. I'm sure it took ages but you enjoyed every minute as it was for her.

You are so wonderful, love you sweetie!

Hugs xx

Good Morning Cindy Sweetie...
What a gorgeous share. I love the blogger header you made. You are a woman of many talents. Your work is so phenomenal. I love seeing each and every creation, and your attention to detail is what makes it so beautiful.

Love this little house book for your sweet Dara. She is going to love it. It turned out beautifully. A gift she will treasure and can look at over and over. My oldest grandchild, Elyse will be 16 on Christmas Day as well. I call her my Angel Bunny. Maybe a special book is in store for her as well.

Thank you for the beautiful share sweet friend. I continue to pray for Ralph and for you as well. Have a glorious weekend. Many hugs and much love, Sherry
