Sunday, January 10, 2010


It has been a long time since my last post. Have been on vacation, and gotten back to work, and work has been crazy with New Years and one of the biggest conventions in Las Vegas, working overtime, so no time to have any fun with my blog.

Did manage to make a birthday card for my daughter and take a couple of challenges. Of course it will be late, as I won't get to the Post Office until Monday or Tuesday and her birthday is Tuesday, January 12th. Know that she understands that her mother is always a few days late, since we live so far apart now days. My birthday wish for her in 2010 is health, wealth and happiness. She had a rough year in 2009, but is getting back into the swing of things. Driving in snow to and from work, and trying to deal with the cold weather, she was raised in Las Vegas where the sun always shines.

Kaylene is adjusting well to the single digits, and loves her new family, home and career, know this will be a great year for her and her family.

This is the card that will be sent to her. Crafty Creations has a challenge to use black and white with a touch of color. Sherrod Studios' challenge was to use the gate fold technique.

Kept the card pretty simple, that seems to be my preference. Add a white bow, and some red rhinestones on the oval. The ovals were made with my cutting system from Creative Memories.

The sentiment is to the point, Happy Birthday!

Time for me to head off to work, it may be Sunday for the majority of the country, but it is my Friday. Have some plans for my days off to create a few projects, hopefully that will come about.

Have a great weekend and a crafty day.
