I chose the above posted artwork as my inspiration. I was drawn to the colors--as usual--and just kind of ran with it! I kept my card simple because I didn't want to detract from the ornaments that I made (this was also one of Misti's workshop cards) even though it was extremely hard to not glitz up that white background with some sparkle LOL!! I hope you enjoy it & the rest of the Design Teams' work: Ashley De Emily Heather Joy Kerry

Happy Friday Everyone!
I've had an extremely busy week with closing out Misti's party, getting ready for Brandon's concert, prepping for next week's technique class & add the fact that I do work part time......get the picture LOL!! I'm showing you a few pics we took last night after Brandon's performance @ school. He joined the choir this year and is really enjoying it & his choir teacher just LOVES him!!! The children did a phenomenal job with harmonizing their different parts & dancing along with the tunes. We had a great time.....I hope you enjoy the pics!
I need to go shopping so I'm out the door! Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!!

We had a wonderful weekend and Brandon really enjoyed his birthday---thank you for your Birthday wishes for him!!! I had to work yesterday afternoon & we had our meeting last night so that's what my post is all about today!
We were required to make 3D swaps for our November meeting & I must say how pleased I am with everyone's swap! The 3 reindeer in the back are my most fave ones out of the bunch but they're all terrific & will provide much needed samples for me!!! I hope you enjoy them as well.
I need to get ready for a mandatory meeting at work today so I'm off to finish up as much of my laundry as I can. Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great rest of the day!!

Happy Monday Everyone!
I have another quick post for you today as I have a workshop tonight. I'm really excited about this party & I'm looking forward to having a great time!!
My card is featuring the sketch from Shirley's 2 Girls & the twist for this week was to use Kraft paper or a paper bag. I chose Kraft paper & made another Christmas card throwing in some Rich Razzleberry to finish it off. I'm glad I did because this color combo with the sketch is truly a keeper in my book!!! Thanks so much for the fun challenge ladies & I hope you all enjoy it as well!

The colors from the above photo just screamed at me so I had to challenge myself to use them for another Christmas card!

Happy Hump Day Everyone!
Really quick post since I'm on the run this morning. Bianca has picture re-take day, I'm making real progress on the wedding invitations & I have a ton of laundry to do!!
So, without further ado LOL....my post for today is another card I made for that swap I was in. This one was another *funky* color combo off the top of my head for Christmas....I think the layout really makes it all work!!! I hope you enjoy it as much as the ladies in the swap did!
I have to run now!!! Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!!

Happy Tuesday Everyone!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Ours was so much fun & yesterday I spent the day working on the wedding invitations that I've been commissioned to do. They're coming along so pretty with the embossing & other details that I'm adding. I can't wait for Juliana to see them.....I hope she'll be pleased!
My card for today is featuring one of my Christmas creations I made for a swap that I was in. I believe the layout came from SCS & the colors are a random choice of mine that I rarely use. It's quite refreshing to throw something different in the mix & have it come out nice......I think the pretty snowflakes really helped pull it all together along with the decorative edge. I hope you enjoy it as much as the ladies in the swap did!!
Well, I need to run....I'm off to work so I better get my lunch together! Thanks so much for stopping by & have a great rest of the day!
