Paper Pal Arts Sketch Challenge was quite the challenge for me. I am happy with how this card turned out. This is a stand up card, the front measures 5 1/2 x 5 1/2. I used Pink Paislee - Father Christmas DP for all but the solid base. I used both the 6x6 sheets and the 12x12 sheets. My squares were cut using the Creative Memories punch in 1 1/4 and 1 1/2 inches. I used a one inch circle punch to punch out the small Santas and Spellbinders were use for the large Santa and all other die embellishments. I used Quiet Fire Rubber Stamps for the sentiment. The gold Santa and Christmas bells were purchased from Paradise Scrapbook Boutique, as were all the Designer Papers and the Spellbinder dies. Thanks Karen for always having beautiful papers and great products.

After finishing the layout, I noticed I was missing something....well not really missing, but mine is not a square, it's a circle. Is that poetic license? The DP is from Creative Imaginations and Fancy Pants Designs. Of course I used Spellbinder and BossKut dies. Ribbon, pearls, DP, chalks are all from Paradise Scrapbook Boutique. This was a fun layout....Well on to my craft room to clean up my mess. Is everyone as messy as I am?

I'm taking a sponged background class through My Creative Classroom the instructor for this class is Kim Teasdale check out both the links. Previous to this class, I've taken classes from Kim. she is one of my favorite instructors. She prepares well for each class, gives great instruction and both her video instruction and written instructions are easy to follow. I refer back to her written instruction often. I'm a great fan of Tombow markers....she's a Tombow Marker Pro! This card was made using Lesson 1. A sweet little card...and one more Christmas card made.....yippee! I've enjoyed every class I've taken through My Creative Classroom. I've met great people, and the instructors are always ready to answer questions....If you're looking for a good way to pass the wet and cold winter days....give it a try.

Bridget is our little Princess and she'll be meeting the Disney princesses at Christmas....this book I hope will give her fond memories of her visit to America and the time she spent with her American Family. I'll have to tell her about all the Fairy God Mothers that helped with putting this journal together. A special thank you to all......

Yesterday was an interesting day...I don't know where my cleaning spree came from, but I cleaned house all day, and then I looked at my two dogs and decided they too needed a good bath. Not part of their plan! To make a long story short....I now have a broken finger! The upside...today, 3 of my fingers are numb...one is making up for it! So, off I go for a great day of playing...starting with a walk with the Weight Watcher girls, followed by a day of card making with the SOS group and then.....the best part of all....picking up my son Dan.
Enjoy the update to my card. Have a wonderful Tuesday....Chat soon!

I belong to a group called Silver Stampers and I try to make cards for all the new members (of which I am pretty new!) I also try to play along with the Mojo Monday Challenge whenever I can, so today, I am doing both. I did stray away from the challenge by adding the bow at the bottom, but the card just was looking too empty on the lower portion. So, welcome Kathy (she should get this card later in the week, I hope she doesn't look at my blog before the card arrives).
Off I go to get some house work done. Dan (my baby) comes tomorrow, I don't want him to think all I do is play with paper!
Have a wonderful week

My buddy Edy and her dog Skippy did our morning walks, the photo above was taken on one such morning. Living inland, the temperatures when we left home were very, very warm. When we arrived we were met with ocean dampness, fog and very cool mornings.
