It’s Magic

Oh my, where oh where did December go?  This year December flew by even faster than normal and was about 10 time more hectic that I have dealt with before.  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  We had a great one as a family, my DH was able to take a few days off of work and spend time with the family without any other pressing obligations.  It was a great time.  Now we are back to the grindstone, and in a few days the kids will be back in school.  I spent what little stamping time, and I stress little, working on my project for Ustamp, so I didn't even do any Christmas stamping or projects.  I am so ready for this year to be over with, 2010 wasn’t really that nice to us.  I know that we had it better than many people but it was a really hard one for us.  I am hopeful that 2011 will be a good one. 

So a little while ago I finally tried my hand at a Magic card.  These cards were always intimidating to me and I never even looked at attempting one.  I finally bit the bullet and they were not that hard!  This one is a simple young boy’s birthday card.hh#6-1 Here is a shot of the magic in action.  When you pull the ribbon the picture colors itself in!hh#6-2 This is a shot of the tag pulled completely out.hh#6-3It was really fun to make.  I did look through several tutorials until I found one that suited me and thought I could recreate.  I know I wrote down the specific tutorial somewhere but as of the moment it escapes me but I think I actually used a video off of YouTube.    I have to get back to some prepping for my class tomorrow night.  I am so excited I have not had a class since before Halloween, had a few prepped but things came up and they were canceled, I am so glad to get back in the swing of things and a semi-normal life again. 

Pin It Now!
