....and all through the house.....


Well, today was sad because I had to say farewell to my dear friend who has been here for almost a week visiting......as visit long overdue. Needless to say, we had a wonderful time together and my daughter and I tried in our most persuasive way to keep her here. But alas, work was calling her, so as they say, "a man's gotta do what a man's gotta do." I did get to finish my card for this week's HM challenge that I started late the other night. This week's challenge was "All about Christmas." I am loving SU's Holiday Treasures Christmas paper, so that is what I used for the background panels. The main CS is Riding Hood Red, also from SU. Alas, the ribbon is also SU. The tag is from PTI's 2008 Holiday Tag Collection stamped on Flourishes Carmel CS with Palette ink and the snowflakes are done with a MS punch. I colored my little furry creatures with my Prisma colored pencils. I'm aching to color my first Tilda's from Magnolia stamps, and I'm also designing my quilt card for Mary's quilt challenge. I must also mail Thanksgiving cards and my grandson's birthday present, so I guess I'd better quit yacking and get to it. Be sure to check out all the cute little mousies in a Christmas theme at the HM Monday Challenge. Thanks for looking and a special thank you to those of you who leave encouraging comments. It always makes my day when someone likes my cards.
For now, hugs and smiles....
