For Aletha

I work at a school in a small town and sometimes come across a library card with a name I recognize. It's extra-special when I come across the name of someone I know well, and in this case, it was extra-extra special: I found the name of someone I work with and call a friend!  How cool!  She was raised in my small town and then came back to teach at the elementary school she attended!

I think she will appreciate this little piece of history on a holiday tag.

Supplies and notes:
  • Library card, almost 40 years old, inked with Stormy Sky and Evergreen Bough DIs... then sprinkled with water drops to add to the snowy scene
  • Stampendous Frantage in Shabby Blue
  • Tim's metallic cardstock diecut with Mini Holiday Greens dies for the pine boughs, attached with matte Mod Podge
  • True Hemp metallic hemp at top
  • Tiny jingle bells affixed with Glossy Accents... they still rattle... I wouldn't say they jingle...
I'd like to share this at the following challenge blogs:


  1. Oh wow what a fantastic thing to create and I'm sure it will be treasured.
    Thank you for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge X

  2. This is such a rare piece, certainly not something money could buy from a store! What are the odds!? You've managed to decorate it without erasing the evidence your friend had this so many years ago.
