Yay a CARD! How I missed sharing.

Hurray! I am so extremely excited to tell you I have the camera and computer situation under control. Yay!!! That says a lot since one of my Husband nicknames is Jazz the Spazz. Hmm. So many things have gone on here since I have last posted.
But first I have a Christmas card to share. I know, that has come and gone. But I feel deprived of Christmas card goodness. Along with a new camera, which Santa knew he would get choked if he didn't bring, since Santa is the one that broke my old one. I got my first sewing machine. Yep, pretty excited over that. Seems complicated, don't know if I'm the sewing type. We'll see how that adventure goes, my little mind is spinning with the possibilities.
So here is one of my Christmas cards that I am very excited to share with you.

I'm still working on the settings on my camera and the backgrounds. This camera is a bit more elaborate than my last one, so bear with me. I purchased 3 different DCWV stacks from Joann along with stamps and other loose papers. This is my first year making homemade cards to send out I needed to start my collection. I love how this card turned out. The recipe is below but basically I matted this a few times. The fancy trim with the pearls are vintage from a friend, the pointsettias are old, old Making Memories and the brads are cream colored ones that I covered with gold Stickels. That bow is Jolees and I've totally been hoarding them because I didn't buy all of the packages that Michael's had when I saw them, which I totally should have I LOVE THEM! The sentiment is Recollections gold embossed.  I made various different cards including 4 of these. I can't find the pointsettias anymore so this is definitely not one I would try to submit to Papercrafts Mag for publication. Which is my ultimate goal in life or at least 2011, or at least one of them HAHA.

 Last but certainly not least, Melissa again is having an amazing giveaway. Which I would LOVE. Here is her blog, go take a looksie She is amazingly crafty!
