Have you ever been upset about a card you made? Well, that is me with this one. I even hesitated about uploading it. I was doing a case of the Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers
. It is Janette aka blessingsx3. The card I cased is just beautiful. Here
is Janette's card. Quite the beauty, isn't it? By mistake, I left off the top panel. How did that happen? I stamped my image on the large white panel, got the ribbon on, and placed my poinsettia. Then, I looked at her card I had printed off and it was an 'oh, no' moment.. So, I decided to just go with it and stamped the sentiment, getting it too high so I added some of those popular sequins to fill in the space that I thought was much too much. I would love to case her card again sometime and do it right the next time.
I am having a bit of a problem with my camera, too. For some reason, it is wanting to blur at the bottom, left side. I guess I'll have to go back to the store where I bought it and find out what is the problem. One more thing...Ugh! Oh, I need to quit complaining. These are such small things and I'm just glad to have a good camera.
I'm entering a second card into the Oozak

You all probably know I LOVE snowmen. Today, I want to show you a few of the needlepoint things my sister has made for me over the years.
The metallic yarn is so pretty on these pillows. Wish it was showing. She has made enough of these over the years to go all the way up my staircase. And, they're all different and gorgeous. She is an expert in needlepointing. I used to needlepoint but that was before I got into cardmaking and now there is no time. Makes me sad.
This adorable hanging snowman is hanging on my computer desk so I can view it all the time. His face and all around is just full of sparkling, metallic yarn.
This is a closer up view. It really doesn't do it justice, though. So much prettier IRL.
I just received these two in the mail on Friday. We are such Alabama football fans so she made these...one for hubby and one for me. I immediately hung them on my tree. They are just too cute.
