My mother is doing very well. She goes to see a specialist on Monday, so we are all a little apprehensive about that. She will find out if she has to have surgery. However my mom is a fighter. Since she got out of the hospital after having her stroke hubby, my parents and me put 40 pints of corn in the freezer and she told me starting Tuesday we would be canning tomatoes. Now coming from a gal who has done this all her life, all I can say is I hate anything there is to do with preserving food. I know your going to say, but it tastes so good in the winter. True, but I still hate doing it! Sorry about the digression.
First up: Friday Sketchers Challenge 66 is a sketch by Carole. I decided that since I have not done 1 Christmas Card this season maybe it is time to give one a whirl. I found this old snowman, Hero Arts, stamp and fell in love with him all over again. I colored him with copic markers, Placed him on some old scraps of Basic Grey (I think). Added a few glitter snowflakes punched from a Martha Stewart Punch, a few glitzy gems and Merry Christma Ribbon and I had my first Christmas Card done. Only 149 more to go. LOL
Challenge 4: Just Magnolia Week 19 Rach's Sketch. I combined this challenge with Christmas again and now I have 148 left to make. Colored Tilda with copics, added flower soft, Christmas, in her hair. Put in a few glitter snowflakes made from my Martha Stewart punch, inked all the edges with Ranger antique linen. Flowers were from my stash, but I sprayed 2 of them with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to make the pink and dark pink (I know it looks red) Added a sentiment from ?? All I can tell you is I got it from Michaels last year. I have misplaced the insert or better yet knowing me, I probably tossed it.

This week our challenge has been set by our blog owner, Carly. She has come up with a fantastic inspirational photo. The colors are wonderful to work with. Since I am doing this so far in advance, I don't have all the details so please be sure to stop over to the Charisma Cardz Challenge Blog/ and get all the details and who will be our sponser.
Thank you to all who participated in our challenge last week.
When my sister was home she needed a special gift box, so I took Carly's inspirational piece very literal and this is what I came up with. Loved this challenge. What am I saying I love them all. LOL
I filled the box with 3 muskateer bars before i sent it to my sister. She had to eat all of them before she could use the box. LOL. I am sure that was a real hardship, but someone has to do it.

I inked around the edges with black ink. Faux stitched around other parts, hand drew in butterfly trail, added bunches pearls. Of course I had to put in a little glitz so I added some shimmerz to give it some sparkle.
