I saw the idea for this card on Nichole Heady's blog a long time ago.
I'm not so awesome using a sewing machine, but I'm tickled at how this card turned out. This was the card I made for my son to give to his Daddy for his 35th birthday this year.

Whoo Hoo, I got a scor pal for my birthday a couple of weeks ago. I've had fun playing with it since then. Here's part of a Birthday gift I made for my golfing Hubby for his Birthday. Here's the outside of the card and the 3x3 box. The idea for the box came from Karen Giron here... http://splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/1338043?&si=golfbox
Here's the inside of my hubby's birthday card
in progress. I can't seem to decide on how to design the border to finish my Ferrell Family Crest. The hardest part of my stained glass project was cutting and foiling the greyhound. Ugh, I broke the first one and had to cut another. Not fun, but I am very pleased with how sleek he turned out. I'd love any suggestions for the border!
This is my first piece of Stained Glass. I completely understand why it is so expensive. It is very time consuming to cut, then foil before soldering together! I love the sapphire blue and emerald green together.
I was so excited to find this advent calendar. It began as unfinished wood. As I began working on it my son helped by putting Cheetos inside ;)
I don't know if the stain will ever come out! lol
He just loves snow globes, but it seems they are all breakable. So I made him one. If he ever breaks this one I won't be worried about glass and the fluid they all have. I used one of the clear plastic ornaments. I put the snow man and his top hat inside with little white pom poms for the snow. I recycled a little can (from green chilies) and covered it in paper to become the base.
I guess I'm a bit late posting this, but this is what I made for my boss for Christmas. It was simple to put together. I used a 4x6 acrylic picture frame to create the calendar/post it note desk set. The binder clips hold an pen in place. The other box contained personalized stationary with her monogram - it was a good couple hundred sheets!
