Holiday Wishes

Hey there,

I hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving and are spending some quality time with family and friends. Better yet, getting your Christmas cards done!!

Today, I'm showing you a card I made for this week's Faux Wood Challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.

For my card, I decided to create a barn door using the Faux Barn Bard technique from Splitcoaststampers. I love this technique and it's so much fun to play with.

After creating the door, I then used the Holly Punch from MS to create my wreath. My sentiment is from Sugar Creek Hollow. I used the Poinsettia Teacup Digi set. It's comes with this beautiful sentiment that I thought was perfect for my door.

Set set is available for purchase and only $4.00.

Now it's time to visit the Design Team. So, grab your cup of tea, sit back and enjoy browsing through our blogs for inspiration.

May your home be filled with warmth weekend!!

Baby Jesus

Hey there,

Well, it's been two weeks since my surgery. I am recovery slowing and glad to be back creating.

The anticipation of this Baby Jesus digi has finally come and I am so glad I was able to create a card this week.

This beautiful image was created exclusively for Sugar Creek Hollow by a young lady in Poland. The scroll was created by our very own Design Team Member Donna.

For my card, I decided to color the baby blanket in blue. I colored baby Jesus and the hay and distress the entire image with my distress inks. I followed the same process for the scroll. I kept the sketch simple.

You have to take a look at the cards the Design created for you. Take a look here. You won't be disappointed!

Then, make sure to go to Sugar Creek Hollow's blog to check out this week's challenge and Sugar Creek Hollow store to grab your freebie.

Thanks for stopping by. Have fun creating!!

Laid Out

Hey there friends,

So here is what I was doing on my birthday. Not really exciting but a must. On Friday, November 5th I had a hysterectomy. This is what I looked like the following day (my b-day).

The pain meds swelled up my face and cheeks. They were on FIRE!! My darling husband didn't say anything to me. I kept telling him my face was really hot. The nurse came in and asked why my face was so red. Then when the doctor came in he yelled, "What happened to your face"?!! I was like, "Okay, would someone please give me a mirror"!! So, instead we took a picture so I can see. My DH didn't want to say anything because he didn't want to worry me. He's such a darling!!

Anyway, it's day 6 for me. I've been laying in bed, reading magazines, watching too much tv and finally online. I have caught up on my DT's blogs, visit some of my fav sites, order my winter coat, boots, clothes and of course, checked my work emails.

The meds are making me really nauseous. Today is the first day without prescribed pain meds and I'm doing much better. I have tried everything under the sun to take the nausea away. I have a few more days of bed rest and then 4-6 week for a full recovery with no heavy lifting, cleaning, laundry, sweeping and exercise. I have to take it very easy. I pray and hope I can do my work because there is so much to do. Both and home and church that is!!

Tomorrow, I will see if I can create something. I'll do little at a time but, I can't promise I'll have something to show. I feel very much like I had a c-section and sitting for too long hurts.

Well, thanks for checking in. I'll see you here soon!!
