Alteration...old to new
Well today's challenge at notimetostamp is take an old Christmas card and alter it with some of your own stuff or if you want, use somebody else's stuff but in short...change it up a bit. Wish it was that easy in altering things in life...like say the body. Boy what I wouldn't give for my old 20year old body, now that was A-Ok. It's crap getting old because alteration is usually altercation and I've lost my old fight lately. Anyway I got this card in the mail and I was supposed to send a donation in for the pack of 6 but I figure if I'm going to buy a 6 pack it isn't going to be cards. Ho Ho Ho.... I fooled them and kept the cards and kept my money too. All I did to this little gem was to take my sweet Nestie packets out and got cranking as in turning that handle. Used some silver for some background paper and cut a few silver snowflakes and added a pretty stone and colored it dark blue. So see how easy peasy it is to turn a card (you would have probably sent to someone who doesn't deserve a handmade one ) into a piece of you. Happy Friday and happy weekend too.
I'm off to the Poverty Program to pack up the toys for the kids whose parents can't afford toys for them. We are providing to over 300 kids this year and I'm so glad we still are able to do it. Let's be kind to someone who doesn't have the resources this year and surprise them with some love and a small token. Doesn't take much to make a sad person into a glad person & when you do it ...you are glad too.
