blue nativity


Today I’m entering AAA cards Blue Blue Blue Christmas,  the image is an A Day for Daisies and i used a lot of blue in coloring it, i also used a  Darcie star embossing folder to get a bunch of stars coloring the brightest stars with stickles to get it sparklie.  Here’s a card without the  embossed stars, although simple is nice i like embossed stars.

LIM 200th

fether-congratsThis morning the Less Is More  blog is celebrating it’s 200th challenge.  So here’s a celebration card. I printed the congrats and then used a spellbinder to cut  and emboss a spellbinder feather, added twine circles, and colored the feather tip blue before gluing it to the card.  Congratulations ‘Less is More’, my favorite  card challenge.

birthday at Disneyland

dland-11-22-14this card is a thank you for a few of my Jazzercise sisters that went to Disneyland on my birthday  to be in the evening parade.   What a great beginning for this beautiful southern California  day (weather low 70’s in the am and a little higher in the afternoon).  We entered  the park early enough to get Haunted house, Pirates of the Caribbean, Mr toad(yes I’m a frog lover) and It’s a small World  rides  done the morning.    Then da da da dah… we had lunch and unfortunately  i ate something bad and was very sick and Cheryl made sure i was accompanied to the first aid station… i stayed there till i was driven home that evening.     My thanks for the great way the Disneyland first aid staff treated me… the Disneyland first aid station is a very comfortable place to be sick in,  first class treatment comfortable beds, staff that were interested and had valuable  emergency information and a pepto bismol like medication that  really helped me!  interesting birthday, wish i could have made the parade but the day was a very memorable 66th birthday  anyway!

the picture  next picture is Lisa, me and Cheryl going into its a small world
