Fun with clothespins

My sister gave me a bunch of these jumbo clothespins. I've always thought rub-ons would work well for decorating them. Yet, they have sat in my cabinet of alterables for quite some time. So I got a few out and played with them yesterday and today. Here is what I came up with.
I thought they turned out kind of fun :D

3 years in the making! LOL

I have heard of long-time projects, but THIS is RIDICULOUS! LOL
As you can see with my blog, I have done very little creating in a very long time. So, in trying to get back into the swing of things, we decided I needed to finish off these cards that I have had the supplies ready for. Three years ago, I started this red card for Christmas cards. With birthday party invitations for 4 birthday parties (each child had a "friend party" and a "family party") and life in general, they didn't get done.
So, I decided to do these snowy cards to send out after the new year with a family update letter. Right about then is when my elbow issues started, and I ended up treating and doing physical therapy for what seemed to be tennis elbow - I think "Stamping Elbow" would have been the correct diagnosis in my case. LOL
So these all got pushed aside, and basically forgotten about.
But I am very pleased to announce that after a mere THREE YEARS,
both sets of cards are complete. LOL!
