Finally finishing my own Christmas cards , I've been working all week on cards a friends asked me to make . Hubby hasn't taken the photo that we send with the cards yet , so still not ready to mail . I choose this theme this year as we are planning a big family trip to Alaska this summer ... Can't wait . I'm submitting this card in the "always playing with paper" challenge #53 Non-traditional Christmas Thanks for stopping by.

Hello, happy Sunday to you all. I've had a busy few days this weekend , as I'm sure most of you have as well. Trying to squeeze in a little bit of crafting between laundry . This card is for JUGS challenge #321 ( photo inspiration) and Christmas card challenges # 52 ( anything goes) and finally the SSS Wednesday challenge (anything goes) . I made a inky mess of my fingers must be sure to clean them before washing whites . Have a great day .

One last card to share before I head of to dreamland ... Much needed after today. This card is for my Aunt Bobby , she recently fell and broke her arm . I'm submitting it for SSS Wednesday challenge " thinking of you " and for just us girls #319 watercolor challenge . Have a good nite .
So I stayed home from work today to take my 11yr old son to see an orthopedic surgeon , he is not a ninja ... Broken elbow proves that . He is doing well tonight so I'm sneaking in craft time . This is my take on the precious metals challenge at "cas-usl Fridays " #145. Trying to build up my Christmas cards supply . Have a great night .

Long day of sitting around tomorrow , I hope to finish my Christmas cards. I snuck in a little crafty time while doing some laundry . I'm playing along with Inky chicks "silent night" challenge and with SSS Monday " letter N" challenge .

Hello, it's a stormy evening here outside Chicago ... So since I was hanging out in the basement anyway I decided to play along with this challenge . I liked how the negative from the watercolor end cover plate turned out I used that for a card also . Going to try to finish my laundry while I still have power . Good nite !
