A Project Completed At Last!

Creative Breathing Inspired Card Frame...
I tried so hard to get a good photo of this cute little Christmas item.  I wanted something to hang in my office to lift my pre-Christmas spirits.  I saw a similar one on one of my (many) visits to Creative Breathing.  Elizabeth is such an inspiration to me in many ways...not just creatively.  I've grown to admire her spirit and the stories she shares about her family.  I hope to share more of my own family stories in the future.

The little card frames are available in craft and scrapbook stores.  It's quite small...only 12" square.  Each little section measures 2.5" by 3.5".  I believe they are used to display Tag Swap treasures.  As a matter of fact, I am participating in Elizabeth's Christmas Tag Swap.  I am having so much fun!  It gives me a chance to be as creative as possible on a very small scale.  I've noticed that many bloggers are hosting various card, tag and ornament swaps.  What a fun way to connect with crafters all over the country!  I'll be sure to post my tags after the Swap is over.

It's yet another beautiful morning in Highland.
It may freeze soon.
Until then, I will rejoice in the gold of Autumn!

So adorable! I love the vintage look. It also looks like it took some time to make. You must be as anxious for Christmas to come as I am! --- Marilee

Hi Shirley,
Oh my your shadow box is beautiful. I too want to make one of these. I am hoping that AC Moore has these frames!! We do not have a local scrapbook store. Thank you for your inspiration too!
