 Here is my most recent card I sent to Sr. Andrea.  This was my 1st attempt making a book card.  I think it is simple yet elegant.

Sassy Cheryl's Show MeThursday #9

Well since the begining of January I have been busy tatting instead of making cards.  I made one bracelet so far this week and in the process of finishing the black one.  I have also been busy tatting with size 100 and 60, 80, and 70 size thread.  The 100 is the finest you can use in tatting.  The larger the # the smaller the thread.  I want to tat some edgings on the 115 hankies I own old and new between making greeting cards.  I need to get busy on my husband's birthday card that is coming up next Tuesday.

A new Technique Called Black Magic

Splitcoast stampers has a new technique out this week called black magic.  You should all try it.  I am having a lot of fun with it and trying different colored card stock for a different effect.

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge # 43 Teddy Bears

I almost did not get this challenge done, it has been so hectic here at our home here in the Midlands of SC.  I can't believe Christmas has come and gone and its time to send out thank you notes for all the wonderful gifts I received from afar.  This Sassy Cheryl bear does the trick, it says it all from thank you to, get well soon.

The Final Christmas Cards

Well I finished my last two Christmas cards this evening. I used some new stamps I bought at Michael's, I forgot the name of them because I threw out the package.  The green trees and green decoration are from Cuttlebug, the snowflakes are from Stampin-Up.

Well I am off to bed finally, I have a big day tomorrow.

Show me # 5

Well I have been busy trying to finish my greeting cards and challenges.  My desk is a mess again. I cleaned it up 2x already this past week and it just never stays clean when I am working on projects.  I wonder where the day has gone.  It is freezing cold out and the wind is blowing like crazy.  I am off to make envelopes for all my cards. They have to be in the mail by tomorrow, then I am going to go finish working on my socks I am knitting.  I have 2 more pairs to make for myself before I can make them for anyone else, since I have to make sure they are perfect before I can give them as gifts.

Use Two Sassy Cheryl Images Challenge # 41

Boy this was a hard one for me.  I must thank Janetlynne for giving me such great written instructions. for GIMP so I could combine two Sassy Cheryl's images together.  I was even able to erase a segment so my add in would look more realistic.  It was a good challenge.
