I am pretty pleased with this card. It is SU So Saffron base with a small strip of Always Artichoke. The designer paper is a Debbie Mumm double sided Christmas print that I picked up at Scrapbook Creations in Spartanburg, SC. The burgundy and gold ribbon is just a Wal-Mart roll of ribbon I've had awhile. The sentiment is from Martha Stewart's Joy collection and is stamped in SU Old Olive. I punched 3 of the 5 Petal Flowers in So Saffron and attached them with a brad and a pop dot. (I have the card propped up on a piece of Night of Navy for a backdrop)Sorry for the glare. I will practice more on my photography as soon as I am caught up on my crafting! LOL The colors really look great together with the designer paper.
I realized that a couple of people on my mailing list for Christmas cards had seen my mass produced card so I thought I better create a couple of special cards for them. I am putting this one in the mail tomorrow.
My husband's mom is still not doing well. She has been in ICU for a week now. Her white blood cell count is low and dropping everyday. They did a bone marrow test yesterday. We are waiting for results. If you pray, pray for her.(and us) We lost his Dad in 2006 and my Daddy this past June. We are absolutely not ready for another loss of a beloved family member.
Thanks for looking at my blog today. Come back again. I am steady working on things.
