Season's Greetings

Hello, my friends. Hope you had a wonderful Tuesday. It's almost come and gone. Next Tuesday the first of my sons will be arriving to celebrate Christmas. So I need to step up my game and get my crafty stuff done. Bought the rest of my yarn tonight so as soon as I get my other obligation out of the way tomorrow, I'll be moving into full craft/shopping mode. I'll try to get as much done as possible by the weekend. I did get one card done today for a progressive challenge.

This is one of several images that we could pick from at The Outlawz Progressive challenge. The image this month was drawn by Sandra VanBlaricum, one of the design team members. I picked the single ornament to use on my card. The ornament in colored with Copic markers and then covered with Wink of Stella for a nice shine on the ornament and bow. The evergreen bough is from a retired Gina K stamp set called Winter Foliage and stamped in Evergreen Bough distress ink. The four designer papers are scraps from my scrap box. The sentiment and holly are stickers from my stash. The ornament is popped off the card with Scotch foam tape. I also used gold glitter on the top of the ornament for some extra sparkle. I am entering these challenges:

Tomorrow I am off for my last day at Head Start with the twins for this year. They will have class next week but my boys will be home and I'll want to spend as much time as I can with them while they are visiting. My DH had his holiday party today and he was honored for 30 years of service at the University. Our daughter, SIL, and the twins came for the presentation and lunch. Despite it being their nap time, the kiddos were good as gold. They were the hit of the party. Thanks for stopping by. Have a wonderful hump day!

Great card- love the design! You are so busy! I know what having twins is like- so wish I had my Mom closer when they were younger : ) I sure hope your visit with your sons is relaxing and that you have a fabulous and Merry Christmas : )

Wow! another entry for the scraps challenge at HIMCR! "Git-r-used", right. Doesn't sometimes seem like the scraps take over? And I, too, don't like to trash what I think I might be able to use at some future time. On behalf of HIMCR's DT, we are glad to have your participation! Becca
