Rudolph Day

A very talented friend in the United Kingdom hosts a Christmas card challenge.  This is the last year for her delightful Rudolph Day and I am going to participate.  I have enjoyed Sarn's blog for several years now.  She has wonderful clean and simple cards, a gorgeous art journal and amazing Sarntangles.  And when I say amazing I mean amazing!  So without more yappydeyap  -

I am so excited because Christmas of 2014 I will have at least 22 Christmas cards.  Thanks Sarn!

Thank you to new and old followers and may 2014 be a healthy and happy one for us all!

It's Now or Never!

I decided to try really hard and make all twelve tags for 2014.  You know I am talking about the..

Yes I am gonna give it my best shot for Tim Holtz 2014 challenge.  My first tag is - The Time is Now ....

I have so much Tim Holtz stuff that I thought surely I had enough to make his tags this year.  Right off the bat I quickly found out that I did not have what he was using.  So this is my take on his make.

Tim Holtz products used are:
the Vagabond - gosh I love that cutting machine
tattered flower garland die
distress inks - pumice stone, gathered twigs and black soot
distress paints - black soot
mini gears
ball chain

I am entering this into the 12 tags of 2014 January challenge.

Thanks for your visit and I hope to see you on the Tim Holtz challenge blog!

Everything But ......

I looked at my tag and thought  gosh - this has everything on it but the kitchen sink.  You want tacky?  I can make tacky!!!!  Actually, I made this for Our Creative Corner.  The challenge this month is called 'No More Shopping Sins".  Lordy, Lordy - this is right up my alley.  I bought some Kraft Glassine paper sometime ago and just now opened it and made some flowers. Just had to try out that wonderful 5 cent stamp and then broke out some new Frantage.    I am going to try very hard not to buy anything new and use what I have.  I am already going into withdrawal !!!

Have you ever been to Disney World and had one of their Everything But The Kitchen Sink sundaes?

This picture was taken several years ago when Joe Jr was around two years old.  Now he is in the fourth grade and is quite the handsome young man.  The little girl is his sister Caroline who is now in the seventh grade.  And then there is me happy as a lark.  But would you take a look at that sundae!  Believe me - it is full of stuff !!!!!

I do so appreciate all of you followers out there in Blogland.  And a big thank you for your sweet and sometimes funny comments.  There are times when  you just drop in to say hello.
