Take Care!!

Squeezed in this card for the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge before I went to see family in Indiana for the Holidays but, didn't have a chance to take pics and post!! Not only did we have the holidays but, we've been having a little troubles with appliances here... just throws a glitch in things!! Freezer went out but, it "played" with us a bit before we knew it was definitely on the blink and now we have a toilet leaking but, plumbers are on the way tomorrow!! It's the one that connects to the master bedroom (our room is on the ground floor) and it can be a challenge to remember we have to use the 1/2 bath for now!! WAS that too much TMI!!?? Sorry!!

Anywho, here's my card


Used some Authentique papers- distressed and stitched a little. Added a Sizzix Primitive Star die embossed with the coordinating embossing folder (came in the mail in December and was itching to use!!). This sketch was perfect!! Added some ribbon, bell, divine twine ( from the The Cats Pajamas) combo in the corner. Sentiment is from WMS Say It Loud. 

Here's the sketch



















Hope the New Year is going well!! Thanks for stopping by!! Appreciate all the kind words!!

Oh MY Vickie! I just love the black star with the elegant swirly detail! The rustic colors and papers (and bells!) just set it off perfectly! Gorgeousness!

Love it. The star is perfect and love the corrugated piece on top. Sorry to hear about the appliance woes as well as the plumbing ones! Hopefully all cleared up soon!
