I'm back with a new creation

It has been awhile since I last posted.  After a scary car accident I have been off supporting my family as we deal with the loss of my aunt and praying for strength to be given to my two young cousins who were also hurt.  Additional prayers would be greatly appreciated. 

In much need of some stress relief I was thankful to try my hand at Card Patterns latest challenge interpreting sketch #34.  Being creative and crafty is always a way for me to stop worry for a few minutes.  This sketch definately had me thinking and trying to incorporate all of the elements.  Hope you enjoy!

Interpretation of a Sketch

My mind is on Christmas cards already which is always good when you are making handmade cards, since they are definately not a last minute task.  When I viewed the Card Patterns sketch I knew this was an opportunity to try out the snowman heads I made a week ago.  Didn't turn out exactly has I planned but I'll keep tweeking it and I'm sure it will be just right by Christmas.

A flash of Ruby Red

As we come off of a long weekend and start the new week I took some time to view some inspiring photos full of energy and the vibrant color of red, my favorite of course.  I'm now sharing these pictures to provide each of you that extra motivation to carry on this week.  ENJOY!
