One of my friends is having her 75th birthday and her daughter was looking for 75 people to send her a birthday card. So this is the card I will be sending to my friend.

Sadly we've come to the end of November and the end of Beccy's Month of Holiday cards challenge. Since I haven't participated in the challenge much for the past couple years, this has been so much fun for me and got my creative juices flowing once again! Thank you, Beccy! I have one last set of cards that I made for the letter N.

Day 16 at Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards wasn't a letter of the alphabet but a challenge to use non-traditional colors for your holiday card.

I think this is my favorite card that I've made so far this month. It started out as something totally different and I love the way it turned out.
So at first I thought I would add a snowdrift under the deer and even cut the drift into the circle but then decided that it looked more like a snow globe so that's the direction I took.

Another card that's been in my head for a while and it's finally down on paper. LOL! I had the big guy colored for a couple weeks but he had a hard time making it onto a card.

Hi again! It seems like it's been a long time since I had a chance to sit down and create anything. Between the auto accident that my SIL and grandkids were involved it and the Thanksgiving holiday that school was closed for, I haven't had much time. But this morning I did get a bit if time to make this very simple card.

I've been waiting for this challenge all week! I had this idea earlier this week and knew these penguins would be perfect for the sketch at Atlantic Hearts Sketch challenge. The penguin's name is Finn and he's one of Beccy's creations. So cute!
Welcome back! I am continuing to work on Beccy's Month of Holiday Card challenge. Someone gave me a bunch of holiday stickers. The ones I am using today are 3-D stickers. I apologize for all the shadows on the card from the sun.

I left Christmas for a different holiday today: Easter! This one is for my granddaughter. She's my "pink" girl.
Yes! I do know I've skipped a few days. But lately my crafty time has been limited. Just a quick update on the car accident. Everyone is home and doing well. The twins are a bit traumatized but they are working through it. Today I used Beccy's Grumpy Goose for my G prompt. My sentiment is from the same stamp set. It reminds me so much of my husband. He's no stranger to naps!

When I started Beccy's challenge, I knew it would be a major problem for me to keep up with the timing of the challenge. My schedule doesn't allow me to craft every day. Sunday we have our grandchildren all day and after we took them home, the twins and their Dad were going to pickup our daughter from work and someone rear ended them at a pretty high speed. Sent all 3 of them to the hospital. So we spend most of Sunday evening in the emergency room with them. God is good! They were not seriously hurt and while our SIL had more injuries, we were able to take the twins home about 9 p.m. Never a dull moment around here. Their car was totaled, so I've been chauffeuring a lot. But today I had some time to create again. On to Day 5, the challenge is same but different. Make the same card but change something on it. I took the easy way out: I just used different patterned paper.

Welcome back to my blog! Today I made a card for Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards using the letter D. For this card, D stands for drinks.
When going through my stamps this week, I found a number of stamps that I bought before we started building the house that I have never used, so this Christmas Wreath stamp by Riley and Company called to me this week. So I am going back to Day 1, the letter A, for my arctic animal: a moose!
I made another "C" card for Beccy's Month of Holiday Cards because I love her set called Celebration Panels. So, using the Peppermint "Christmas candy" image from this set I made a "clean" and simple card. I used the pre-colored image and then added different color Stickles glitter to the shaded areas to give it some pop.

My card today reminds me so much of my Mom. She was a baker, especially at Christmas time. And she baked cookies for weeks before Christmas and packed tins for friends and family. And she was an excellent baker. So my card today is a tribute to her, may she rest in peace.
