Good morning! I am home today with a sick girl today. She has the flu....and while she sleeps in a bit, I thought I would share a vintage Christmas card. The image is from Crafty Secret's Creating With Vintage Christmas CD. I added gold Stickles to the perimeter of the image. I matted the image to a tag. The tag was given a bit of color using brown ink and a snowflake stencil. I splattered it with a bit of pink water color.
The background was completely water colored in shades of green. The edges were edged with black ink to make it pop a bit more. For the finishing touches I added lace, gingham ribbon, and some rusty jingle bells.
Thank you for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend! I am off to take care of my girl!

We all need a reminder once in awhile. Life has a way of knocking the wind out of your sails sometimes. This card is just that. A reminder.
The set is a brand new set by JustRite called, Remember You Are. I stamped the flowers in two colors, red and pink. The image was cut from a Spellbinder's circle and while the die was in place I sponged a bit of yellow and pink Tim Holtz inks. I splattered the image with a bit of silver Heidi Swap paint.
The background was also water colored. The circle die is by Lawn Fawn and that was water colored too. (Why stop now?) ;) I added gold cording and a bit of gold paper behind the image. I also added a few sequins.
There is so much to share with you, but lately my time has been quite limited. But I will tell you because many of you asked.....and I didn't mean to leave you hanging, that Brian has to have his gallbladder taken out. We are hoping that the surgery will be scheduled next week. He is still having quite a bit of discomfort.
The rest I will tell you soon. I just need a bit of time to get my thoughts together.
Thank you for stopping.
Thank you for leaving comments.....sometimes it gets a bit lonely over here. ;)
Have a wonderful day!!

Good morning! I feel like it has been forever since my last post! So much going on lately with the holiday, shopping, and a little medical scare we had with my husband over the weekend.
He is okay, thankfully, but was definitely something that reminds you how precious life is.
I have been meaning to show you the rest of my November projects for JustRite's new release.
They have the prettiest dies this month! I used the large snowflake die and the poinsettia die. I know they are going to be used A LOT this holiday season!
I cut all of it out of water color paper and used my Koi water colors in pinks and oranges.
I assembled everything and added gold Stickles to the outer edge of the snowflake.
The center sentiment is part of JustRite's Chrismas Mini Tags Stamp set. I added a bit of glossy accents and glitter to give it a snowy effect. For a finishing touch, I added pearls and a string to hang it.
My precious family......so glad they are mine.
Enjoy your day! and thank you so much for popping by!
