Well the hustle bustle of the last minute details before the big day sure has me about you? For me I'm also planning my daughter's bday for Xmas eve. My baby is 10 years old....not so much a baby anymore.I sure can see how the "baby syndrom" for your last child hangs on lol. I'm trying but she keeps reminding me she's not.I wish I could keep them all young and cuddly lol..Well a mom can dream can't she ?

Anyway onto my card... The image is from Saturated Canary images.Love this little guy. He was definetly easy to color up and quickly. My papers are from Lili of the Valley. Now onto my embellishments...they vary from Prima,WOC ,twiddlybitz, Studio Calico,Kaisercraft  and Memory Box

Some Close ups...

Hope you like.I will try to be back tomorrow with one more card,if time allows me lol 
Have a great day

The snowflake charm is from Stampin' Up.I actually love them so much I didn't want to use it lol. They are sooo pretty. My flowers are of course from WOC and berries from Magnolia.

Simple Things Matter Most Canvas

Now my blog has been very quiet. I seemed to not quite found my mojo yet. I have played here and there but not a whole lot.I had made this canvas some time ago ,just forgot to post it.I am hoping to get a few Xmas cards made to show you.Maybe the new year will bring some new mojo eh? Let's hope so.In the meantime thank you for stopping by and being patient that there isn't anything here lol,I promise I will do better,
So onto my canvas,I used my daughter's grad photo shoot pic for this.We had done her photo shoot the next day after grad .So when we were driving to the site my daughter had asked me " Mom since grad is done Can I get my picture done in the river? It's just water and I can get my dress dry cleaned?" So I thought why the heck this has become my fav picture because behind it is the spontaneity of it.
My papers are form Bo Bunny,flowers are from Prima and WOC. The cool chipboard is from Blue Fern Studios.There is lots of sprays,ink and texture on this canvas.It was a lot of fun 
Check out the pictures for close ups..
