I hope you all had a wonderful holiday! We sure did - we cooked a prime rib dinner for my daughter Cass & her boyfriend Mikey, which turned out perfect. Then we visited Jeremy's family, and ended the evening by hanging out with Cass at Mikey's sister Katie's house... and Katie just happens to have the world's most adorable 4-month-old baby girl, Melrose. :) So we had a great time. Christmas Day we had a little party at our house and I made buffalo chicken macaroni & cheese, Swedish meatballs (which I must say came out better than any others I've ever made in my life!), lots of dips and appetizers and desserts... let's just say no one is going hungry around here this weekend. And I took yesterday off, so I ended up with a 5-day weekend. So nice.
So here is a Christmas card I'd like to enter into a few challenges:
I'm stepping down as DT coordinator, but staying on the team. Megan is going to take the month of January off and then she should be back with some new challenges, so check back in February. Here's my card:
I would like to link this up to the following challenges:
I used Unicorn Girls Heart, printed on DP and colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits with some Stickles on her horn & the hanging heart. Die-cut numbers are from My Favorite Things. Paper is from Authentique. Peace.
Happy Friday! :) I love Fridays - usually my husband and I go out to dinner, but tonight we're getting take-out and spending the evening cooking & baking for our family Christmas party at my sister's house tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to it!
Hello there! I feel like I never blog anymore, and I'm starting to miss it. It's such a different world working full-time, but I do enjoy it. And of course when I hurt my hand, it really set me back with crafting. It's come a long way, but I still can't bend it at the middle joint. I have to continue massaging the scar and I go back to the surgeon in February. He said we could talk about doing another surgery to remove some of the scar tissue but I don't think I'm going to agree to another surgery. The only things I cannot do are light a lighter, snap my fingers, and do the "bridge" when you shuffle a deck of cards. LOL I don't think those things justify another surgery and possible complications, etc. I'm just so thankful to be able to dress myself, start my car, peel & cut up vegetables... I'm very appreciative of things I never even gave a second thought to before. Life is like that, isn't it? Well I certainly think about it now!
Anyway, I'm playing catch-up today and posting some of this week's creations. We had a new challenge for you on Wednesday at:
