Have a Holly Jolly Christmas



Screen Shot 2015-09-12 at 3.57.04 PMHello Friends,  Sorry I went all week without posting anything new!  I have been sick for what is going on 15 days now and it’s been all I can do to muster up enough energy to go to work everyday, minus yesterday that is…I went back to the doctor instead.  To not bore you with all the details, I have to have some more tests next week to get to the bottom of all this sickness.  I have had a rough year so far and I know being around the youngins can be tough, however this is my 7 illness since February and things have got to change! Anyways, enough of my woe is me!   I did enjoy making this one layer card that my good friend Sharyn has asked us to do this week over at Just Us Girls for our Wild Card Week. One layer is tough for me, but once I got started I really enjoyed it!  Having a resident artist in the house can be a good thing and a bad thing, I told him I wanted to cast a shadow underneath my ornaments like I see all over blog land all the time….but I think he took me literally and more in an actual artist shadow if you know what I mean.  I kinda wanted a less obvious one…but anyhow I didn’t want to hurt his feelings during my lesson and I just went with it.  I decided to add the little ink edging around the card at the last minute. This stamp set is from Verve and I just love it!  It’s called Holly Jolly Christmas and I would have linked it up for you, but sadly it’s no longer available.

Before I go I need to thank our Guest Designer Julie for being with us over at Just Us Girls.  You did an incredible job this month Julie!  If you want to have the possibility of being a GD with us in the future, all the details can be found over at Just Us Girls.

Addicted to Stamps and MoreI am going to link up my card to the Holiday Challenge they have going on over at Addicted to Stamps Challenge blog!
Happy Halloween. Hubby and I are headed to the movies tonight, I hope!  Nanc’
