TCP Sketch and Blogger's Challenge

Hello Friends! Sorry that I have been MIA lately. Basically, I have been sick since my last post...ugh! I started with laryngitis the Wednesday before Christmas and it has been downhill since then! I am feeling better now and it has been so nice to have this week off to get the chance to recuperate. It will be good to actually be able to talk to my kiddos when I get back to school on Tuesday! Because I have been sick, I have missed a few of my favorite challenges. Last week's Blogger's Challenges was called, "Ornamental". (Sorry folks, I have been trying to download this photograph for two and a half hours!!! I'm not sure what the problem is. When I can add it, I will.) My little one and I make this 3-D paper snowflake together. Our Christmas tree was filled with ornaments so this was the perfect addition to my dining room hutch. We used some October Afternoon papers with gingerbread men and coordinating polka dots. I love the way that it turned out!

This week's Blogger's Challenge theme is "Celebration". My parents' are celebrating their wedding anniversary today. That is a cause for celebration! So I used last week's sketch from The Cat's Pajamas to make them their anniversary card. My image is from the TCP Ewe Complete Me set. I used a few Copic Markers (C1, C3, RV17, and V05) to color up my sweet pair and then I fussy cut them out. All of the patterned papers are from My Mind's Eye. The main panel is from a note card that I picked up in the Christmas Clearance section at Michaels and the card stock is from Papertrey Ink. My other accents include a heart made with the TCP Heart Trio CutUps, some Baker's Twine from My Mind's Eye, and the flower button is from Stampin' Up.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope that you have a very healthy and Happy New Year...Toodles! :D
