Crafty Secrets Card

Hi all ~ I cannot believe that next week is Christmas!!! Although it is really cold here and we have had awful weather with the rain constantly coming down for the last two weeks. Now we are in the 30's, which for Bama is cold. I cannot imagine living up north where it is truly cold. My hat's off to those up north.
I believe I have finished with my Christmas shopping. Although I still have to go to the grocery store to get yummers for Christmas day. I will be cooking on the 24th...something that I always have fun doing. I love the holidays! Especially the family part! When we all get together and open presents and sing carols (in odd voices) and then it's time to eat the wonderful dishes we have all contributed to making...yes, everyone this year is doing their part and bringing something yummy to eat. It used to be that my sister and I did all of the cooking...well, we have added some to speak...our DD's...LOL!

This card is very vintage. One of my favorites. The Santa came from Crafty Secrets Journal that I bought from Sharon at No Time To Stamp. The cardstock is SU's Real Red. I used Flourishes Finishing Touches little slide that looks like a belt buckle...the ribbon also came from Flourishes. I used Glitter Dots too. Not really much to this because the image was easy peasy.

I have another post before Christmas and I hope I can get it in on time. Have a great weekend all!

A Bird's Song from Artful Inkables

Hello all! I guess everyone has had quite a chilly weekend. My sister (Annie) and I went shopping yesterday....from dawn until dusk. It was in the 40's and windy and raining the entire day. We started out at Cracker Barrel for breakfast....mmmm...that was a great start for the day...they had the fireplace going and it was all warm and cozy...Then we hit the stores...I am just about finished with my Christmas fact I bought more than I should have, so I am saving some of it for next year's Birthdays. At any rate, we finished shopping when we could not walk anymore...LOL...I am blessed to have such a wonderful sister!!!

On to the card. I used SU's Real Red cardstock and then patterned paper from Hobby Lobby. I glued the string of pearls diagonally. Used my Nesties for the image and the sentiment. The Holly buttons from Hobby Lobby, MS branch punch and a pearl to tie it all together. I used Memento London Fog for the sponging and my Copic Ciao Markers for coloring the image. I am really excited that I am learning to sponge more. I did it on the last post and I think I am getting the hang of it.

I do hope you like this card. I am pleased. Have a great week and thank you for your comments!!

Annie's Birthday

Happy Birthday Annie...I really love what I did with these....the card and the sister, Annie loved it...I was thrilled. The photos are bassackwards ...Annie, if you see this...I love you dearly!
Hi to all...Today is my sister, Annie's Birthday! When she was little, she wanted to be like Annie Oakley, who had a series on television ( I am SO telling my age)...I am positive that none of my commenters knows where or who this is...but, nonetheless...She was probably 6 years old and her "real" name is Ellen...She went to my mom and after watching the television show "Annie Oakley" she said that she did not want to be called Ellen...but Annie...and so it began...Ellen became Annie...LOL...
I made this card and 3-D carton, which has 2 oil sented vials from Bath and Body Works (Evergreen and Winter) for her birthday...She was sooo surprised and loved it all. I hope you all love it too...
The image is, of course from Sara Kay. I just love everything Sara Kay...
oops...gotta run...sorry...I wish you all the best of weekends!!!
