Challenge #23

Hello Everyone,

I know, I have been absent for sooo long. I had a 3 day trip to Saskatoon last week for something called Buymart. And when I was not busy with that, there was work, and working on our house, and trying to figure out where to put everything in my nonexistent craft room!
We are hoping to paint the house this week and next week, so I still may not be around alot, but I do have a couple of other cards done, so I will try to get them posted in the next week!

The challenge this week at A Spoon Full of Sugar is sparkle and bling. That's it for the challenge this week, you just have to have some sparkle or bling on your card....how easy is that??? I expect a whole lot of participants on this challenge!! As always, here is a link to the site to go and check out the details!!
I don't know all the details of this card, but what I do know is that the image is from High Hopes...here's the link to this wonderful stamp! The image was colored with prismacolor pencils and OMS. I used the quickie glue pen and sprinkled glitter on the hat and the fur on the boot. The paper is Coordinations cardstock, celebrate christmas glitter stack from Hobby Lobby, and an unknown dp. The snowflake at the bottom of the card, is a nestabilities snowflake - cut out with my cuttlebug and then attached with a sparkle brad.

Don't forget check out A Spoon Full of Sugar this week for the wonderful challenge, and thank you to all of my faithful followers, I am sorry that I have been so busy lately (hopefully it will get better soon!!).

Have a great day!

Some of my B-day cards

Hello girls,

I'm afraid that I am leaving Tomorrow for the weekend, for work, so I won't have time to do any posting. I will be back late Monday night, and am really hoping that next week won't be as crazy as this week. My husband had hired someone to come and do some mudding on my walls this weekend...esp. in my craft room, so I am kind of glad that I will be away.

I have promised that you could see my birthday cards from last week. So in no particular order....here they are!!

Morning everyone,

I haven't had a chance to make or post any new cards this week. My father-in-law is down and we are putting all new windows into our house and then hopefully putting up some siding. We are doing some huge changes this week so I can't wait to see what it all is going to look like when it's all finished! Probably going to go crazy before that though, because my whole living room is torn up and really soon my computer will have to go for a day or two.

I also wanted to let all of you know, to check back next week because I will be posting some birthday blog candy. It was my 34th Birthday on October 2nd!! I sure am starting to feel old...lol!

Thanks to everyone who emailed me and wished me a Happy Birthday, and thank you for all the cards that I've gotten in the mail. I will be posting those soon too!!

Hope you have a great weekend!! And I will be back soon!!
