Good Morning,

 Well, it is the busy busy time of the year.  This is the first Christmas I will not see any of my children or grandchildren, but we do have skype and facetime so that helps a little.  My son in laws are in the Army so they are in different states - TN and Hawaii.

On to today's page.  I played with mm today and created this page.  Actually, it was more like 5 days because I am still learning.  I have discovered one of my problems is I keep adding and adding and then it is too jumbled. 

I used DYLUSION INK - LONDON BLUE and used gesso to lighten in places.  The dark edges were made using gelato.  Acyrlic Paint was used for the large hearts.

Stencils used were CRAFTERS WORKSHOP -  CHICKEN WIRE, BASKETWEAVE (designed by Victoria Case), SPILLED HEARTS (small hearts).

Stamps used were CRAFTY INDIVIDUALS and the zig zag around the edges is from the DYLUSIONS INBETWEENIES.

Merry Christmas to all my followers and thank you for your inspiration.

Good Morning,

I can't believe it is December and that Christmas is just around the corner.  Where did the year go?

I haven't done an easel card in a long time.  These are so much fun I should make more.  Today I am sharing this cute little girl all BUNDLED UP and ready to play in the snow.  A cold front came in last night and it is cold, but we very seldom get snow in Texas.  However, we lived in Aurora, CO for 13 years and we saw plenty of snow and this is what this card reminds me of.  My snow really is white, but for some reason the camera didn't get a pretty white glistening snow.  This image is from the SAMPLER #7 by ELISABETH BELLThere are some really cute images in this collection. 

The chipboard tree is from my stash and I just dabbed some dye ink on it and applied some GEM SPARKLERS on it.  I love these little things and I think they stick better than rhinestones. 

A PETALOO CHIPBOARD GATE is behind her.  It is painted with black acyrlic paint and then I sponged on some DELICATA PIGMENT INK - GOLDEN GLITZ.

I know this is a busy time of year for everyone and I WOULD LIKE TO THANK ALL OF MY FOLLOWERS FOR TAKING THE TIME TO STOP BY. It means so much to me and it is all of you that keep me inspired and wanting to do more.
