Treasured Card Display

I was really planning on working on my tag for this month, but I got side tracked, lol.
I started to clean my room, then decided to work on a display project I've been thinking of doing for a year or so. 

I love each and every card I receive from my crafty friends. 
I have been on YouTube and my Blog for 4 years now and have received many beautiful cards during this time.
The problem is, I don't want to put them away in a box. I want to see all of them. 
I started to display them by hanging the tags and cards from a bar. But I quickly ran out of room, and had to put some away.
I got this idea to use Marilyn to display them. 
When we go to Mall of America there is a display in a paper store that I love. The dress forms have paper dresses. 
So I went to work on putting my cards and tags in order by size. Then came the fun part of clipping each card on her.
My fingers are a bit tender tonight. 
I found more cards after I took this photo. 
The cards go all around Marilyn. 
The bottom round are all my Tracy's Tags from the swap I hosted a few years ago. 
Isn't she gorgeous!!!!
I love to look at all these beautiful cards that so many have made for me.  That is what is so special, these creative ladies took the time to make me a card. I feel so loved. 
I made a video with more detail :)

I hope you all have had a creative Wednesday :)
