Good morning, everyone!

Hope you are all doing well.  I've been hired to create a scrapbook for a lady who is giving it as a Christmas gift, so I've been a bit out of pocket lately.

Yesterday, my dear friend, Shirley, and I went into the city and took a Northwoods workshop at For Keep Sakes.  The class was taught by a lovely lady named Mary.  She was just ever so delightful, and even brought us homemade cookies (yum)!

Now, as you know, I rarely use Stickles, but all four of the cards we made yesterday were loaded with Stickles!  So, not only was it fun, but it was slightly out of my comfort zone.  Here is the first card we made yesterday:

I just put the Stickles on the last three cards, so I will post them tomorrow. 

All I know about this card is that the image is Northwoods, there are Stickles galore on it, and it's colored with Copic markers.  Not sure who all of the CS's are by. 


Have a great week - I've managed to catch DH's cold that his boss shared with him last week!  The couch, tissues, meds, hot tea, and pillow are calling :)

Take care,
Patti J.

Beautiful card Patti! Love the red glimmer paper! Feel better soon!

Wow! Patti, your card looks amazing! Gorgeous image, wonderful coloring and beautiful card. I love the raised part with the cardinal in it.

You might start liking stickles. I like it because the glitter is confined. It just takes a bit to dry.

Can't wait to see the rest of the cards.
Hugs and smiles
