New poll posted! Check it out on the sidebar!

This could be important, as I have a blogaversary REALLY soon! Hint, hint.... I also reached 10,000 hits a while back! Hint, hint, hint.... So, this could really be important!

I made this card for the Crafty Creations Challenge which was to use some embossing on our cards. I used my dotted swiss cuttlebug folder, and my nesties.

The image is special, as it is my first ever Our Daily Bread stamps! I have always oohed and aahed over their stamps, but have never been able to purchase any. A few weeks ago, I participated in the Stampin' Sisters in Christ's first challenge, and I won! The prize was this beautiful set. If anyone from ODB is reading, thank you so much for this wonderful prize! Thanks too, to the SSIC for their wonderful challenge site!

Supplies: Our Daily Bread Birthday Stamps, Tombow Markers, Marvy Terra Cotta Ink for stippling, Versafine Black Ink for stamping, Ribbon from Hobby Lobby, DCWV CS.

Tomorrow is a 'girl's day out'! My friend and I are going to go to Archiver's and make some Christmas cards! If I learn anything fun, it will be posted tomorrow night!

DD and DH are both on the road late tonight coming in. DD's been manager on duty today, so has pulled a 12 hour shift, and DH is driving the 4+ hours home for the weekend. I'll be happy to see them home safe and sound!

Thanks for stopping by!

Patti J.

This is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!
