for this week's challenge at Joan's Gardens!
Happy weekend everyone!
This week's challenge at Joan's Gardens is to do a Christmas card keeping these points in mind:
· Use a Tree
· Use Blue and White Colors
· Use a corner embellishment
· Use a snowman
What a great way to get those holiday cards started! I never seem to have enough! I end up selling a lot of what I have made for challenges, etc. (mind you I'm not complaining) but then when it comes time to send cards to my family & friends I run out ... and you know there is NO WAY I'm sending a store bought card ... I'd be run out of Dodge!! LOL!
Image is a stamped off image from a friend from a couple years ago (sorry can't remember who the company is ... if you know let me know so I can give proper credit!) It was colored with Prismacolor markers and matted on medium blue cardstock. The sentiment stamp is from the SU "A Cardinal Christmas" stamp set.
Paper: The Paper Studio 'Vintage Blue Snowflakes'
Accessories: Spellbinder 'Stacked Trees' die, Cheery Lynn Designs B165 Lace Corner Deco E die, Gold Pilot Marker, Stickles (crystal, red, green), pop dots

Well ... that's it for me today! Hubby & I have been busy doing some "Home Canning" the past couple of day ... hope to share that with you tomorrow. Plus we spent the afternoon yesterday at the hospital with my daughter who went in for a scheduled surgery but it ended up being MORE than expected. She's doing much better now and actually came home this afternoon ... but it going to be a LONG recovery! Please say a little prayer ... thanks!
