Challenge #45 at Joan's Gardens

Well, here I am for this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens week #45.
The guidelines for this weeks challenge can be seen HERE. Simple really, use red and white with a touch of green, negative die usage, and use some form or snowflakes, and have used something purchased at Joan's.  As I purchase most of what I use there, and by now can not remember what and where I get something, I hope I have that covered as well.

So, I think I have covered all bases, if you have any questions just ask, otherwise that is all for today. Have a wonderful week.


Christmas Card Swap

HI all,
Well, a few days later, here I am finally posting the card that I made for the card swap at our local Craft Store, we make 12 of the same card and then get back 12 different cards, this is the 5th year I have been doing it, and it is fun to see what cards you get back.

So this is the card I made this year, I did not get fancy with my blending with my copics, I just did not have enough time, as I of course waited and waited to do this till the last minute, and some of the steps I did, I would have to let things dry, like the beak of the penguin, with yellow stickles, then glossy accents here and there, and then the eyes of all the animals, each step just took time.

So this is my final card, if you have any questions ask away, take care and see you soon.

Gone but hopefully not forgotten!!

Well, here I am, how many months now, sorry but when one does not have ones health, you have nothing much. I won't go into the LONG and boring story, as it is still not over with. I was supposed to be in the hospital, with the Dr.'s changing my medications, and to do so I have to be under medical supervision for 3 to 7 days or so, I dread it, but want to get it over with. And my pain levels have been horrible to say the least, and while they are changing my medications, 2 of those days I will have NO medication at all, I can't imagine what a WITCH I will be!! My husband in a laughing manner, said, Call me when it is over with!!!  I know he is half laughing, but the other half of him could never deal with me in total pain. It will be an en lightning experience to say the least, and like I said as of right now, we still do not know exactly when this will be.

Oh well, I have been not doing much crafting, or card making. Making some cards here and there, but no energy to photo them and blog, so I have been just mailing them out.  But I did get a card made for Joan's challenge this week, so that will follow below this paragraph. I will then make another post and show the card that I made for a card swap at our local craft store, we had to make 12 of the same card and will then get back 12 different cards.

So my card today is kind of simple, we were to use white and gold and some pearls and to use an embossing folder as well, my pearls are kind of hard to see but they are there. If you have any questions, please post me, to me it is obvious what I used and did, but you never know.

Joan's Challenge this week and the guidlines can be found HERE. Joan has wonderful prizes for her challenges, and carries a wide variety of things in her store, and if she does not have, she will make every effort to help you find what you are looking for. Joan has Quick and efficent service as well.

Have a great week everyone!!
