ACY card

When my son was in first grade, he brought home his first school made Christmas gift for me.  It was one of those black silhouettes of his face.  I still have it and cherish it very much.  I think this is why I love the cartridge A Child's Year.  I hope you enjoy my card.

Every year I tell myself the same thing.  That I am NOT going to wait until the last minute to finish my Christmas projects.  Every year I am still working on them a few days before Christmas.  Well, at least this year I can say that I did have at least one project finished at the beginning of August.  These are my gift tags I will be using.  I used the Very Merry Tags cartridge and a lot of glitter.  Of course, that means I will probably still be cleaning glitter up until Christmas.  I never can seem to work with glitter without getting it all over the place.

My first picture post.

As I laid there watching the ceiling fan spin, I decided that since I couldn't sleep I might as well do something productive. I challenged myself  to choose a cart that I had not used yet and use only it to design a card.  While DH was snoring away, I quietly went  and got my gypsy.  I crawled back into bed (a girl must be comfortable when playing) and created this card using A Child's Year. I had so many ideas in my head that I knew for sure would be gone when I finally did sleep. I sure wish there was a way to add notes to the mat. I did manage to retain some of the ideas and had the card completed in no time.  I hope you enjoy it.

Wow.  I don't have much here but it sure took a long time to get it done.  The hardest step is finally done.  My blog is open.
