I received from 3 of my 4 partners on Saturday... but barely being home at all that day, I didn't get a chance to snap photos.  Unfortunately, I won't be home from work before dark any day this week, so rather than waiting until next weekend to get pictures outside in the sunlight, I will share these less-than-optimal pics taken in my very poorly-lit craft room.  (Ladies, if you have better snaps, please feel free to share them!)

From the very talented blupaisan, for my "Red, White and Aqua" theme:



That is... lace?  I'm not even sure what it is, much less how to make it!  It looks so delicate and complicated... very lovely.  Smiley  And the other side:



Next up, from our awesome organizer kaz814:



OhmahGAWSH, it is an ENTIRE Advent calendar!  25 cards, baby!!!  I took off the beginning and end cards to show you, but they all hang from the top corners on these nifty hangers kaz sent.

And then, my jaw hit the floor when I saw the talent of Onyxnox.  Shocked



These two cards are based on pins from my "Vintage/Retro Christmas" board.  And if that was not amazing enough already...



I got this absolutely gorgeous double-sided tag for my "Preparing for Christmas" theme to boot!



Like her earlier tag, it features a nifty transparent element in the ornaments on the trees that will let light shine through.  And although you can't really see it in the pics, there's also lovely shiny gold and silver elements as well.

Talk about being spoiled!  A million thanks to my amazing partners for these wonderful pieces of art.  Cheesy

    I am guessing that to be starched lace like...something. Cute. And I love spiders. Those are webs. What a wonderful gift.

    And Onyxnox...very neat doodlie dooodlie dos. With added ummm...water color pencil, or water color paints? Very neat art.

    I've received from Helcura and kosmicgirl!


    From Helcura ...


    A fabulous nature scene, complete with adorable fox!




    and the back with a very cool pinwheel:





    And a gorgeous stained "glass" which I adore.  The colors are amazing.




    And the back:  (Funny thing, my very first ornament I got when I was a baby looked very similar!  Love it!)






    And from kosmicgirl:


    She went with my nativity scene and drew or painted (I think) the wisemen.  I am in awe of her skills.:




    and the back with the star:





    Thank you both SO SO much!  They are going to look amazing on my tree!

      Received cards from blupaisan, vincentvanbuck and our lovely host kaz814 yesterday. You all rock!
      I will post pictures this weekend, promise Smiley

      I absolutely love the vintage feel in your cards onyxnox!
      The reindeer are wonderful, and I love the lace card as well.

      I drew the wise men in ink and marker pens, with gold and silver accents. Glad you like them!

      Received from kosmicgirl today.  What can I say... her talent just astounds me.



      This was for my "couples kissing in the snow" theme -- I am a sucker for those romantic photo Christmas cards you start seeing on Pinterest this time of year.  (My SO has assured me that we will NEVER be taking a picture like that.  Undecided Oh well... we live in South Texas, which gets maybe an inch of snow once every ten years, so the odds weren't really in my favor to begin with.  But, I digress.)  The card is entitled "Winter's First Kiss", and the picture doesn't do the deep gorgeous colors justice.  I also absolutely love the double-heart charm and pretty orbs on the hanging ribbon -- I will have to remember that little trick!

      I've had the opportunity to receive multiple cards from kosmicgirl before, but I think this one is now my favorite.   Grin  I am just thrilled with it -- and somehow, I had a hunch you might pick this theme!  Thank you so much again.
