I'm running just a little bit behind today....

I'm sorry for the lack of posting ~ but I'm not sure that many of you know I run an MSN site also - and go figure, the name is "Cards Made by Hand". Well, MSN has decided to shut their groups down. This is a major decision I'm sure. There are a lot of groups out there and I'm sure that they are all thinking like me "what to do?"
I have found a new site and I've been working on it. MSN won't be pulling the plug until February of next year but I want to get the new site up and running before then. So that's part of what I've been doing. The other - well, I've been bitten by the "spring" cleaning bug as my hubby would say. Just getting things outside in order for the fall and winter months. Been cleaning windows - yes, I've been cleaning windows. Ok, they are the ones in the craft room-but they are still windows. Putting the flannel sheets on the beds. Stuff like that.

I have been sitting in the craft room for a bit today and I've got one card almost done. I will show that tomorrow - PROMISE.

Today I would like to show you a little something that I made a few months back for Paper Wings. This was actually for Father's Day but I remember someplace on the web someone did it for Christmas and called them Santa's Pants. If you know where let me know so I can give credit where credit is due.
This is the front view. See the little ribbon slide? It looks like a buckle.

This is the back side. I should of poked the brads thru the ribbon, that would of looked a little better.

And here are the directions for them. If you have a question ~ don't hesitate to ask me.

OH! And another thing that I'd like to add. I received a comment from Carmen and I popped in to her blog and saw the coolest way to store your stickles. Please, if you will take a peek ~ No more shaking the bottles for me to get that stuff to come out! I'm doing this for sure!!

Hope to see you all tomorrow!!

Oh, this is way to cute for words! I love the whole design, Joanie! Super creative and clever-thanks for the great tutorial--will have to try it out sometime! :) you are so inspiring! TFS! ...oh, and about that birdhouse I made--I got it at a little dollar store in my area--if you look around, I'm sure you'll find some similar to mine...but don't pay more than $1 each for 'em, hehe! hugs, buddy!

PS- sorry about your MSN deal--that stinks. :(
