Dear Santa!

Good afternoon!  I hope all my Jewish friends had a lovely Hanukkah,,,,,and I hope all my Christian friends are busily preparing for Christmas!

It's coming so fast, and I am SO far behind this year! Thanks, of course, to the flare I had in November that struck me down and out for nearly a month.

I did manage to get some Christmas cards made for my grand children :)  They look forward to them every year, and keep them year to year, so I couldn't disappoint.

Card recipe at the end :)

Isn't she darling? I couldn't help but use some stickles to really make her shine :) My six year old DGD will love her.

And I think my grandson will love this little guy!!!!

Here's a close up of the darling Bugaboo images!


I hope you all have a lovely Christmas (Or Hanukkah) season! May God bless you all,,,,hold your babes and grandbabies a bit closer this season, and be thankful you can.

Party Time Tuesday!

Good Morning!!!

If you're seeing this, I finally fixed my computer! (fingers crossed!! but I do think it's fixed!)

It's Tuesday and time again for Party Time Tuesdays,,,,,,,,this week's amazing challenge is Kids Christmas cards, and I have a darling card using Flonz stamps for my contribution!

Isn't she darling??? I double stamped the image, once on white card stock, and once on patterned paper, and cut the dress out of the patterned paper, adhering it to the white card stock,,,,,,,the rest of the image, I colored with copics. she looks like she just saw Santa come down the chimney and she can't WAIT to empty her stocking!

Paper: MME Christmas pack
Ink: copics and Onyx Black
Dies: 2010 spellbinders snowflake, spellbinders scalloped ovals, Memory Box Crystal Snowflake
stamps: Flonz. I highly recommend them, they stamp BEAUTIFULLY!
bow and jingle bell: Hobby Lobby

I hope you run right over to Party Time Tuesdays and load up your darling kid's Christmas card and join us for this fun challenge!

Now, on to something more serious,,,I've had some pretty painful arthritis issues for several months that have really interfered with my life,,,,,,,I've found that keeping up with Design Teams, all the commenting that requires, and my home life has simply been impossible. I'm doing better on new medication this week,,,,,,,,but still,,,,,,I miss crafting just for the fun of crafting,,,,,

and so,,,,,,,I've given up both my design team posts with Party Time Tuesdays and Sugar Creek Hollow. I dropped SCH several weeks ago,,,,,,,,and Party Time Tuesdays will be up at the end of the month.

I've truly enjoyed both these amazing experiences,,,,,,,,,but for the good of the teams and for my own good, I've simply come to the end of my rope, health wise. It's time to step back and get my health in order,,,,,,,and enjoy my crafting again.

I hope to be able to post some fun stuff regularly,,,,,,,,but I will no longer be posting for either of these amazing design teams.

as they say,,,,,,,,I'll see you on the flip side!!!!!

and Happy Hanukkah to all my Jewish friends!!!!!!!
