My goal is to start doing challenges.  I found one today at Off The Wall Craftiness  that I loved.  The challenge is to use this inspiration:

I chose to make a card for my Godmother, who just found out her breast cancer has returned.
The card was hard to photograph, I had to hold it up under the light.  :)

The sheep has white flocking, so it is soft and nubbly.  The pearls are white and I added the pink stones for breast cancer awareness.  The framing circle is metallic silver and the base is black.

I used the sketch from Annabelle Stamps blog's challenge also!  It is really two challenges in one.

Thanks for looking!

Best Song EVER!

Yesterday I was hanging out with some of my niblings- Olli, who is 4, his sister Tuna who is 19 months, and Ethan, who is six.  I was singing silly songs to Tuna, putting in their names- like  "Tuna, the red nosed reindeer" and "Jingle Bells, Ethan smells, Tuna pooped her pants..."  When I ran out of song ideas, I asked the boys for some.  Ethan suggested the ABC song, so we sang that loudly, then I asked O for a suggestion.  He, as usual, claimed he didn't know any songs.  I pressed harder, asking if he knew any from daycare.  He thought for a minute, said "Oh, I know one we sing!" and started to sing:

Take a guess!
Take a guess!

At this point he looked up, and noticing the blank look on my face, explained "then we do this" and made some hand gestures and clapped,  "then she picks one of us and we guess!"

I managed to thank him for sharing the song, before running to the kitchen and collapsing in a laughing fit.

I have to admit it stayed in my head all day tho....

First, I have some new art to put up in the beadroom.  This painting was from Ethan, and it is titled "Flowers".
This one is from Greg, and is titled "Kitty".  The frames are large, the paintings were 9x13 so I just got bigger frames and centered them.  I figure I can change out the art when I get more!
This is the get well card I made for Jodi, using my fave Cat's Pajamas Get Well set.  I got a new "punch around the page" punch for Christmas!
Today I also got a great package from Imaginisce.  I won a Garden Party package in a blog contest.
Here is the paper- 12x12 and 8x8!
These are loads of chipboard and stickers.
Flowers, ribbon and bling!
Can you believe what a large selection of goodies?  Thanks Imaginisce!

catching up!

As you can pry tell from the lack of posts, I have been pretty sick.  And  mostly sitting on my bed.  :)  My Christmas goal is to post once a week at least, and to start doing challenges.  The main reason I want to do these things is cuz I need to get off the bed!

I am having trouble sitting in the beadroom since my procedure on the 23rd, so I will be putting off the challenges until I can do so comfortably.  I did make a card today tho, for a friend, and will post it later in the week... so she has a chance to get it first, tho I doubt anyone is left reading my blog.  :)

I got a few new things recently that I am eager to try! Hopefully I will be sitting in the beadroom again soon.

Meanwhile, here is a card I sent for Christmas. I forgot the santa hat on this one tho...lol.
Inside it says "Feliz Navi-dog!" I sent it to my nephew who called to wish me Merry Christmas in Spanish.

For the rest of my cards, I will see if I can find any samples to take pictures of this week.

Have a great week,
