What? It's Thursday?

Yesterday I was convinced it was Thursday and instead I wake up today and it's truly Thursday.  Sigh.  I was really having a good positive week but then suddenly I lost my momentum and energy.  I guess I need to recharge? I created this card and was hoping it might be my motivation.  Hmm.  Not sure.  I was determined to use non traditional colors to make this Christmas card.  My own goal. I have been hoarding this fabulous Creative Imaginations paper and the large purple lace for a bit now.  The shame.  It struck me that I could make this work.  Crafty Creations is sponsored by Sketching Stamper Digi Stamps and Chris, the owner, was extremely kind and offered the DT the image of their choice.  I selected this stocking image because I envisioned so many different things.  What I did with it was totally different. First I printed the image on plain cardstock and tried to fill in with markers, a result that I was not happy with.  Then I printed on pattern paper and it was so -so.  Finally I found a scrap piece of Making Memories paper that I printed it on and then thought it needed some sparkle.  I filled in the houndstooth squares with Stickles.  I was hoping for more purple, not so much blue.  But eh, it is what it is.  Ultimately I am pleased but not sure it's going to be a Fab 5 for 2S4Y.  You know they are looking for a new designer to add to the team?  How cool would that be?  Go check it out!

Okay I have to get my car to the shop.  It's overdue!  Thanks for stopping by!

Amy, you really are selling yourself short!! this card is beautiful!! I love how you've done the stocking & am trying to figure out how you made the band at the top look like sparkly fur?? The ribbon & button detail are fab. In fact I love everything about it & fingers crossed they do too at 2S4Y.

Something Special

Yesterday, I was sure it was my sister's birthday, so went about wishing her happy birthday on line, and then my husband informed me that her birthday is today. Oct. 14th. I confused her birthday, with my daughter's wedding anniversary, so I must be getting old. Love you card.
