Coffee of the Day - Maple Pecan Pie
Our new challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges is Designer Paper - use a little or load it up! :) well, very rarely do I not use any, so this was a fun challenge for me! We are sponsored by QKR Stampede and Stamp and Create. Be sure to stop by the challenge blog to see the FABULOUS projects by the DT.
For my card I am using the adorable Peace Angel image from QKR Stampede. She reminds me of several rag dolls I had when I was a little girl. Raggedy Ann & Andy were by far my favorites. I loved reading their books, too, and had quite a few of them. Somewhere in the attic I still have my dolls....
Papers are from the October Afternoon Good Cheer collection. it's a little hard to see, but behind the crochet lace is a piece of sheet music designer paper. I added some faux stitching to match the stitching on the doll. lots of washi tape, of course!, some vintage buttons as well as VERY vintage ric rac, baker's twine, tag, and a beautiful Prima poinsettia complete the card. her wings were coated in fruit punch stickles 'cause an angel has to sparkle! and the stars were painted with shimmerz.
on a side note, the winner for the Pinterest contest hasn't been posted yet, but thank you to everyone who helped out with re-pins.
also, I sent out a message to all of my DTs yesterday. I am cutting waaaaaay back on all of my DT work until I can hopefully feel better. this card took me over 4 hours to make yesterday, and I cried almost the entire time 'cause I felt so icky. I just can not go on like that. I'll have a few more cards to share this week, but after that, it might be a bit more sporadic. I just have got to get to a better place with my health if I can. this cancer might end up taking me in the end, but it will never win. there is still too much joy left to behold.
my love to all of you! Jennifer
