How was every one's Thanksgiving? Mine was just right...we spent Thanksgiving with my dad's side of the family-his large extended family. I believe there were about 160 people there! Crazy, I know! We also went to visit my mom's mom who has been in the hospital since November 1st. On Friday, I made our own little Thanksgiving dinner just so we could have leftovers! No Black Friday shopping for me this year and it was so nice to sleep in! And I have already got into the Christmas spirit-we put up out tree yesterday and I have already started creating some new ornaments!
JoAnn's has some really great Paris themed goodies in their dollar bins. For $2.50, you can get 2 sets of Eiffel Tower playing cards. Use some coupons and the deal is even better. I got 2 because I knew that I could use these cards in all kinds of things. My mind was thinking all night and here is just one of the ornaments I came up with! I made a medallion out of vintage sheet music, glittered the edge of the card and glued it on.
I glittered a tiny white rose and glued that in the corner. It adds just the right touch of whimsy. These don't have to be packed up with your Christmas ornaments, you could use them year round!
There are a lot more ideas going on in my head for these cards. So stay tuned for more creations! Go out and get some yourself-I would love to see what you come up with!
