Hi and a card!


Hi Everyone,
I absolutely don't know where the time is going!! I have been so very tired and sore, but I'm plugging along and filling some card orders. I haven't yet figured out how I'm going to get my own done, mind you, but atleast I'm getting everyone else's done!!! lol

I apologize for not posting as regular as I should be. Everyday I think about it,
and the time just flies right by me like a bird! I've seen so many cute things that you've all been making, they are awesome!!! I'll probably not get to try some of them until "next year", but that's ok, cuz it's not far off!!

I'm going to share this card I made, I hope you like it. I used a non-Christmas stamp set to make this, Barouqe Motifs. I really like how it came out. I put some dazzling diamonds around some of the swirls give it some "bling", but you can't see it in the pic. River Rock and Chocolate chip are the main colors I chose to go with.
I used that gorgeous chocolate chip satin ribbon Stampin Up offered last year on sale. It's so rich, it's one of my favorites. I am going to work hard to come back here daily and update my blog! I'll try, I really will!

I hope your holiday time is going well. The clock is ticking, only 11 days left til Christmas!!!!

Thanks for reading & I'll try to get back here tomorrow :)
hugs,
Ret

Beautiful card Ret. Your work just keeps getting better and better inspite of the set backs you've been dealing with. I miss your posts, but you do what you can.
