CR84FN 45

Hello!  It feels like forever since I posted last.  I am recovering from the hectic holiday season.  Did you have a wonderful holiday?  We had unseasonably warm weather which made it hard for me to be in the Christmas spirit.  I think we will pay for it soon.  The winds are howling right now as some "wintry mix" rolls in.  That cracks me up when I hear the weather person say that.  That means it will be a mix of rain, snow, and ice.  I wonder what it will look like when I wake up.


Well, the CR84FN DT have resumed their biweekly color challenge.  This week we have blue, orange, and yellow.  Can you see I used my new My Favorite Things stamp set?  I ordered that for myself for Christmas.  I could hardly wait to open it and play.  I used my new Janome Sew Mini to stitch on my card.  I thought I had the tension worked out before I stitched on my card, unfortunately it didn't turn out so great.  I am a little disappointed.  I do love how small and portable it is.  It can just sit right on my craft desk.  I will just have to play with it a little more.  I absolutely LOVE the new Fringed Perennial die.  I used the smaller of the 2 petals and centers.



I used the new sketch at MFTWSC to get me started creating again.  They have some of the best sketches.   

Make sure you stop by and see what the rest of the design team has created for you.

Ooh...an Wintery Mix, huh? Sounds rather, um, er...intersting.

Just survived the holidays barely myself. But am excited by your card. Love the fun colors of this challenge and your interpretation of it. That tea pot is so darling. So much wonderfulness by way of details here. Very inspiring indeed.

Hi Heather
Wishing you all the Health and Happiness for 2012, I have so missed popping by to see you beautiful creation just like this one a stunning make chum really, it's good to be back with all my blogging friends.
It's been quite some time since my last visit in which I apologize for, this was due to giving up my part time work to looking after my Mum as she was quite poorly with her spine and also taking care of my wee grandson who is Autistic so these last few months have been full on, but glad to say my Mum is doing a lot better now..
I do hope you are well and take care with the weather ahead stay safe and warm.
Lots Hugs
