Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate the sacred day and happy weekend to those of you who don't. I'm here with our last post of 2010 for Our Creative Corner. As we close out the year, I want to thank all of you for stopping by each week to see what I've been up to. Your comments and support mean the world to me and your positive reinforcement letting me know that I actually can make worthwhile art projects have helped to keep me going throughout this past hyper-busy year. I've had the privilege of serving on some fantastic design teams and have "met" some incredible women. I know I don't get around to your blogs often enough, but you are all special to me - especially those of you who are regulars who I so enjoy hearing from. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope the blogosphere has blessed you as much as it has me.
Alright, so now on to this week's challenge at Our Creative Corner. Our host, Sarah Gough, has challenged us to use felt, flocking, flocked paper or felt embellishments on our creations this week. I am so into using textiles on my cards recently and loved this challenge immediately. My felt is in the form of die (Cuttlebug/Spellbinders) cut snowflakes. I used ivory felt and rubbed some Antique Linen Distress Stickles on them for a bit of bling. And I seem to be very into kraft card stock recently. I had forgotten how wonderful it is for that rustic country look. How about this retro style image? I absolutely love it! The Fairy Queen over at Prairie Fairy has just released it as a digital image and she's giving it away as a freebie on Christmas Day! Hop over to her blog immediately and sign up to receive her posts and maybe you'll be in time to receive this awesome freebie.
I'm not going to go into details as I think everything is pretty self-explanatory, but if you have questions just leave them in the comments and check back later for an update to the post. Now I gotta get some sleep so Santa can come!
Blessings & hugs,
