Christmas in March

Posted by Picasa

It has been a very long time since I posted , but my life has been full of turmoil for a while . I have been sick several times as well has going through extensive dental work , and that's not quite over yet . Also we have been going through some extremely difficult times with our teenage Autistic son , which has been physically and mentally draining . We are finally getting some much needed behavior & skills training and respite care for him , so we are optimistic that things will improve over time . I am going to try to be posting more often , but can not promise as to how often that will be . But I will do my best !

On to the cards , made this past Christmas , these are the 2 versions I made of this card and I made about 8 of each , they were lots of fun to make . Here is a list of supplies used :

Martha Stewart Christmas Stamps
Martha Stewart Punch
Nestabilities Oval and Scallop Oval
Nestabilities Ribbon Tags Trio
Ribbon , glitter, DCWV Christmas CS and textured CS , Sky Blue Blingz by Shimmerz , gingerbread stamped with Brilliance Coffee Bean , Copic Glitter pens also used to decorate the gingerbread . Gumdrops are stamped , hand cut , then glitter added to each and applied with pop dots as is the main image .
Thanks for stopping by , and don't forget to sign my guest book ! :)
