Yes, this is for another challenge over at 365 Cards. This challenge was a color combo challenge on Day 329. I knew as soon as I seen it what image I was going to use. While my mom was homebound because of her leukemia she colored for me. It gave her something to do while she could not do anything else. She passed away in November, so all the images she colored for me have become very special to me.
This project was so inspired by my friend Niki at ScappinMojo. She did an amazing Valentine girl and I just had to make something too.
Do you ever make something and then wish you could to something over? I really like how my girl turned out, but I so wish I would have moved the words over to the right about a .5" more. :( Oh, well...
Yes, I know it is January and Christmas is 12 months away, but I am not going to get in the situation I was last year. I always like to make my cards, but time ran out of me and I did not get them done. Anyway, my goal is to make at least 6 Christmas cards a month.
Well, I am really ahead of schedule! I think this is my 3rd set!
Anyway, I was so inspired by the challenge over at 365 Cards, that I made this card for their Sunday Challange.
Here is their sketch.
And here is my take...
I can't wait to get started on their Monday challenge! It is a color combo and it also going to be so fun!
Thanks for looking!
Cold snowy days just make me want to stay inside and scrap. Here is the second card that I have made today. It is for a challenge over at 365 cards.
I took a close-up so you can see the embossing on the heart. I used clear just to give it some texture. There are so many unused tools on my shelf that it is time to start using what I have. It felt nice to try old new things.
Sorry for the poor photography. It is either me or the camera. My guess is me.
I can't tell you how good it feels to be able to create again. It is like a breath of fresh air sweeping over my soul. Now that is a little dramatic, don't you think? :)
Anyway, here is the card I made for the current challenge over at Jingle Bells, Beth's January Color Challenge at Scrappin Mojo, and today's card challenge, using scallops at 365 Cards. It is my goals to make six cards each month and so far this month I am ahead of schedule!
I am either a terrible photographer or my camera stinks.
The image is not crooked and the card is not bent.
Here is a close-up so you can see the glitter. I do LOVE glitter!
Here are the 6x6 pads that I am ordering. If anyone is interested just post in the comments. It will be a first come-first-served kind of thing.

Well, this is Molly. She is our newest dog. We got her when she was about 9 months old. Now she is almost 2. Our entire backyard is fenced in so she has about an acre in which to run. You can see our grate which opens into the back yard in this picture, right beside where Molly is sitting.
The only problem is that she is on the OUTSIDE of the fence! We can't keep her in. She keeps digging her way under the fence. We have tried wire along the bottom of the fence, pounding steel rods into the holes she digs, and even put barbed wire along the bottom.
What drives me the craziest is that when she gets out, she runs to the gate wanting back in! She can get out, but she can't get back in.
When I make cards, I almost always make six of the same thing. Well, this one has been a true work in the making. I have everything cut out, colored, stickled, stamped, painted and ready to go. Now just to decide if I like it.
I think it needs something. I've added a button, ribbon, string, more snowflakes and nothing seems to make is look done to me. Maybe it will grow on me if I keep looking at it. LOL
I'm in love, I'm in love, I'm in love and I don't care who knows it.
Yes, I watched Elf one too many times before Christmas.
As you know, I love making SheArt girls. Well, now I love making them ATC size! Look at this...
She has a hairband! I was thrilled that it turned out! The words were in the book that I am using to create the face, arms, and legs. There were so many possibilities for sayings that I had a hard time deciding what one I wanted to use. Hopefully, waiting will be in the book two more times, as I want all of these three girls to begin She waited...
Here is what the back looks like.
This swap is going to be so much fun!!! Wait until you get to making these! They are super fun! Yes, that came from Legally Blond. LOL
This year, I want to live every day to the fullest. We are not promised tomorrow, so the word I have chosen is Today. This little box is going to sit in my bathroom by my make-up so I can see it every day.
Here is a picture from the side.
Thanks for looking and I hope everyone has a Happy and Healthy New Year!
