I am sure a lot of you went to WM for the BF special on the Lites. I was in line at 10 p.m. to get the laptop and a few other goodies. I did get the laptop and gave it to my friend to buy for her son because I just couldn't justify everything I had already spent money on and that....She did buy me breakfast to make up for my total lack of sleep while she was warm and dry in her bed. Well, I did NOT get the Jolly Holidays on BF even though I had it in my hands. I decided against it. And then I went back on Saturday and purchased it for the $25 instead of $20. I do get a 10% discount so that kinda made up for it? Yeah, not really. So usually I get a new cart and do nothing with it for a long time and then after making myself feel guilty about not using it I try to find something to do. WELL, not this time!! I started and completed a Home Decor project tonight. I think it is for a challenge but cannot find the one that it fits.
I am not a designer and sometimes my head spins in circles when I go to the designers gorgeous blogs to see their projects and the list of Ingredients is 25 long and 4-5 carts mostly for one cut here and one cut there. Perhaps I should be the Thrifty One Cart Wonder Blogger!! LOL.
So here it is..........and I LOVE IT !! This is completely done with Jolly Holidays and Bazzill cardstock except for the background paper and you will have to forgive me it was in my bin of paper I have had for a long time and I do not know the designer. I used Diamond Stickles to add the sparkle and a red grossgrain ribbon from J's on the frame which is recycled from my Give Thanks home decor. The frame came from Walmart and was $3. It is very dimensional which is hard to tell on the photo but in person it pops out of the frame. I wish the photos did not take away from the colors, the gray house looks dull in the photo.
