A Card and A TIP

Well I wasn't planning on posting a card today but seeing as I had an interesting afternoon I thought..why not...I actually have something on my mind and needing to spill a little. I love my readers who post wonderful comments...I love the encouragement it gives me when a comment is made in admiration of my cards and other work that I post. It is because of you that keeps me active with my blog.

However..............there are those that like to use and abuse ones blog for personal vindication. Lets face it, hidng behind a screen is so much easier than facing oneself in the mirror...even facing anything period can be ugly when you actually turn the light on and see who's lookin back at you...which is usually the reason why hiding is a comfort for a cowardly person. I'm a very observant, intuitive, and aware person...and I saw right through this particular poster who decided to use my blog to promote their slander. "ANONYMOUS" TIP: My husband and I are alot more computer savvy than  this poster gives us credit for and it is known who it is. Come JANUARY 1st I hope this poster gets the picture loud and clear...move on...get a life and stop dwelling on what cannot be controlled...although I'm sure you tried...and failed...miserabley.

On to the card and to my regular readers :) I love this set that I used for this card. It is from Little Paper Shop also from the Global set just like from the previous card that posted. The Embossing folder used, I had never used before even though I got as soon as it was available....which was about a year ago maybe or even longer I'd think. Anyway, this card did in fact take alot of time to make but was a breeze when I massed produced them...the most difficult part was placing the winter leaves and then adding the glitter...

Well I hope you all like it and please excuse my blurb on a particular poster.

Have a great Day! I know I will :D

So here is one of favorites and one of hubby's favorites :) hope you all like it...Have a great day!

Everyone have a great day...

Simple Season's Greetings

Good Morning :) I've made a lot of Xmas sets this year and here is one them. I've been using colors I wouldn't normally use and haven't ever used because I hoard
I'm loving the gold pearls but the one I use are all attached to one piece of adhesive so detaching them is a bit of a pain. If anyone knows where I can get gold pearls please let me know.

Cuttlebug folder was used for the BG and old Sizzix snowflake die to bring out the second BG. I also finally used my Flourishes Spellbinders as an accent. The satin ribbon finished is off nicely :)

Thanks for looking! Have a great day

Card Recipe:
Stamps: Recollections snowflake, SU To You and Yours
Paper: SU VV, BB, Kraft, Unknown kraft textured.
Ink: Versamark, SU Close to cocoa
Embellishments: Ribbon, Gold Pearls, Spellbinders, MS Punch, Cuttlebug folder, Sizzix Die, Corner Rounder.

White Poinsettias for my mom....

Well hello everyone things have still been pretty much the same in my life but....whatever!!! I'm going to do my best to get through my days without too much
So here is a card I made with my mom in mind. She loves Poinsettias and used my set from GinaK Designs that I got last year and finally decided to break it open :) The gold paper I had frpm laster year too an can't find it anymore which really bites because it's nice and thin..The card stock is too thick an never would've been able to get the punches through them. I don't think I could dup this card even if I I'm not sure if she'll get this one or if I should attempt another one...hmmm...I'll see how I feel... :)

Thank you to those who posted such comforting and supportive comments...I do appreciate's one of the biggest reasons why I love blogging and sharing my work. All of you make my time worth while :) Thank you for putting a smile on my face :)

Stamps: GinaK A Year of Flowers

I apologize...

For my absence. I've been going through some family stuff and it's been really tough to keep up with my blog. It just never seems to end in my household. So when I don't blog anything for about 10 days you know...uh ho...Michelle's life is being turned upside down sounds so bad doesn't it...I mean sometimes it's because of being away with life just getting busy, but usually when I'm away this long it generally means it's one thing after another and it's taking it's toll. I did say previously in one of my other posts that this is the time of year when I wish it were simpler....too many things going on from the month of Sept. straight through until Christmas...Not to mention I do suffer from Seasonal Depression...So some days are definitely tougher then others. Things will get better I keep saying....well it is Friday and looking forward to a Chocolate martini later. *BIG GRIN* out later for a friends B-day.

I will be posting some work that I've done for Chirstmas so make sure you stay tuned for that :)
Until then...hope everyone has a great weekend.
