While I was gone Blogger has decided to revamp the system a bit, so I'm trying hard to get used to the new Posting format. Did I mention I don't like changes to things, especially computer related?  I'm absolutely not a techie kind of person at all. When a change happens to computers I'm completely lost in the weeds. I'm so bad at them, in fact, I actually researched on how to Blog for 3 months, before starting mine up. I was doing searches like "What Do You Write In A Blog?". I wish I could say I was kidding, but I'm not :) Every blog I encountered seemed so effortless looking, so I took the plunge figuring how hard could it really be? And I'm really enjoying it :)

So I was feeling rather creative last night and had all the pieces to make a card that happened to fall together with some remnant paper I had left and some scattered embellishments that had almost fallen perfectly on it! Trust me, that Never happens. I put it all together but somehow it doesn't look as good as when I first saw it. It looks "flat" to me, but I still love the idea and how it turned out.

I used Flourishes " From The Garden" & "Lenten Rose" sets. I used the Classic Oval Spellbinders Die and colored the image in with Tombows and sponged it all in with "Old Paper" Distress Inks. I used Graphic 45 paper with a few old tags from an old My Mind's Eye line with some pearls from Prima, then a few soft acetate butterflies scattered around from a Martha Stewart punch, to finish it all off.

So as I was making this card, my husband had the fortuitous audacity to remind me to start thinking of what kind of Christmas cards are we going to make this soon? Notice I said WE :) My husband is very hands on when it comes to our Christmas cards, he insists each year I need to top the previous Christmas card. Last year we went to no less then 3 scrapstores (we live an hour away from the nearest one), and even backtracked to one of them, deep in discussion as to what should be used in the "windows" I had created on our Christmas card. I mean this was one for the records as to one of the deepest discussions we've ever had about cardmaking :)
Here they are: 

I think they turned out Great with his help...but I'm having a hard time thinking of a card to make for this year. I'm hoping to come up with something soon, since I love his help and the fact I almost have his blessing to buy more "supplies" to expedite this venture ;) 

By the way, Happy Birthday to my Beautiful Rheanna, who turned 6 this evening. Happy, Happy Birthday my Precious; we prayed so long for you!! I still can't believe 6 whole Years have just Flown by! May the next 6 slow down so I can enjoy them :)
