I've returned from visiting my son to celebrate his birthday. Instead of buying a birthday cake this year, my daughter-in-law made a Butterfinger cake and it was so yummy. That was my first time to try one of those. Plenty fattening!!!
This week Joan's Gardens challenge is:
Something from Nature (bird)
Colors-red and green (hope I didn't use too much white)
Cut out center and stamp a design
Create a Christmas card
You must use a product as Joan's Gardens (Mine is Opulent Opals S5-160 and is what I used to cut out my center)
Joan told a way she learned to make a pretty sky. I will have to try it. This time, I used my Glimmer Mist and have learned to spray above my cardstock and not directly onto it. That way I get a mist without the splotches. I have a board that I put my card in to spray and I just spray toward the back and onto the board and let the mist fall. Hope that makes sense.
Also, Christmas Cards All Year 'Round-Christmas Extravaganza- Make it Fancy and Fussy
I also want to enter my card into the challenge at Stamping for Pleasure-Rudolph Day.
