YAY... I can type and upload and all that good stuff

I couldn't access my dashboard in Blogger at all... bummer, as the old kids on the block used to say... do they still say "bummer" anymore?   I finished a Christmas card... yes, dear, I'm building my stash.... and two ATCs.  

LILY PAD May Arts Presents… a Ribbon Challenge 

The wonderful image is from Kathy Martin and the sentiment is Hero Arts Christmas Sayings -CL343.  I give out all kinds of cards as gifts during the season, but I think I'll give Xmas cards this year too.   WOOHOOO!

The background for the butterfly was a wonderful watercolor panel from a lightweight cover on a paper pad.  I thought the Prickly Pear die-cut was perfect on some leftover pattern paper. I dabbed White Enamel Accents on the spine. 

Scraps I had on the table just seemed to jump out and attach themselves to the paper. Little Miss Starlet came off some panel of lotion and the other items were in a packet of things to be sorted and put away.  The corrugated panel is from another lotion container.  It's been given a once over with distress inks Broken China and Victoria Velvet. The star is from Lily Pad's download for a digital challenge with Shari Carroll.  I dabbed White Enamel Accents and white Flower Soft on it.  The hat is from Hero Arts Digital Design Kit "The Art of Style" colored with a Copic marker.

So clever to make Christmas cards ahead of time. I do, but have not started yet...

Beautiful cards too. :)Peggy
