mixed media madness and more cards...

Hey there! I am in full on DIY crafting, holiday mode. Oh my!! Why are we not being shown awesome projects in July, August...September?? Here I am taking an online '12 Artsy Ornaments' class and today I am running to Salvation Army...going through sweaters...looking for wool. {or at least anything that's at least 75% wool} I did run across a Santa ornament from Hallmark, circa 1976. I love him...still stored in the package with a little hook. Guess how much... $1.00!
I am making paperclay nesting doll ornaments too. There are lightbulbs inside these, paperclay wrapped around, then painted. I didn't put a metal loop into these two girls...they are going to sit, and they are at their new homes tonight. I hit the dollar store for more lightbulbs, on the way to the Salvation Army. 
Check out the last two cards I have done from the Purple Onion Designs, Stacey Yacula line. The first one is 'Jingle Bells'...
Soft creams and blues, plus LOTS of glitter! I always loved square cards and round cards, so here is a nice combo of the two. I colored with pencils and gamsol, in case ya didn't know.  
The next card is a total CASE of Linda's card, that I was lovin'. See Linda's card HERE.
Yeah, I used different papers and added PEACE, which was cut from my Silhouette SD, as was the tree. It's all very popped up and I used my ScrapDots to do that job. The little penguin's name is 'Filbert' and he is over at Purple Onion Designs. 
Last but not least...check out my 3x3 canvas ornaments...I have 5 more on my kitchen table, ready for girls. 
I am having fun creating and thinking about creating, while I'm at work. lol
See ya friday...for a blast from the past...I am doing BellaRIFFIC Friday at Stamping Bella. It's a special edition BellaRIFFIC Friday.    :)

Beautiful cards Paula, and I'm curious what you're doing with wool! I've been on the lookout for some wool sweaters myself, I need me some upcycled mittens!
