Hello, Tuesday!

Hi, Is everyone ready for Thanksgiving?  We're getting together with my sister that lives ten minutes away from us. Our kids and grandkids. I can't wait.

It's funny that when your parents are gone, it's harder to get together.  Our parents and both our in-laws are gone. Just makes for some really strange holidays.

Anyway, Thursday should be fun. (and I won't even mention the food)

Today I'm going to show you what I made for my sisters. They are both so talented and always making something for me and their skills are marketable. I play with paper.

They are always amazed at what I make out of paper, but so much of it is not perfect. I never feel like it's good enough to give to someone. Then I found a file that had a true use and made out of paper.

I made them clocks. This is a fabulous file from SVGCuts. (bet that is a big surprise) It's called Maison de Madeline.
It actually took me weeks to do this after I decided what I would make. I was so afraid I wouldn't be able to make them good enough. They really weren't hard. They went together like clockwork. (sorry about that) lol

Anyway I finally got them done and I'm really happy with the end result.

Take a look:

This one is for Denise. She is always taking a trip so she has an airplane and postcard on hers.

This one is for Debbie. She loves clothes shopping and handbags so hers has a hanger and purse on it.
The papers are different but they are both from a Tim Holtz paper pad.
Thanks for stopping by.
Hugs and God bless. Stephanie
