So pop on over to join in the fun and for more info.
And I entered this card also in Stamp Something . The challenge is "Holiday Somethings". You can create anything you wish that reminds you of the holiday season.

I'm back!!! and a challenge for cuttlebug

Aloha everyone! I'm back....
First of all... my apologies for mia in 3 months. I had a hard time since my older brother passed, this is so hard and so sad for me and my family. But I know he is in a better place now with God and resting in peace.

Anyway, I am back to join in a challenge. I missed the challenges. At Cuttlebug Challenge this week is Glitter! Add glitter, bling, and use your Cuttlebug. Due by Tuesday December 8th midnight Est time so I still have time :) I had so much fun creating this christmas card. I cut out the sentiment and the snowflakes from cricut and used the potpourri basket cartridge. I hand drew the bird, then cut it, embossed and added stickles. Sorry for the blurry photo hope to take a better one later.

Just want to share another christmas card. I love this paper from Basic Grey.

Just wanted to wish all the mothers out there a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!
A quick mother's day greetings I made from my PSE.
Some of my mother's day presents. Thank you so much my dear hubby, sister and my kids. I ♥ you all. Angela got up so early and greeted me Happy Mother's Day, yes she's the first one who greets me today :) I was surprise when she gave me this beautiful red glitter box, I didn't expect to see these gorgeous beads jewelry. She told me to put our photo in the square pendant so I have to look for one to put it in. I ♥ these, the heart charm says * made with love* wow! how touching is that? And in the afternoon she gave me the blue mother's day card with her handprints. I really love the greetings inside here it is ***Every day I am exploring, touching everything I've found. I leave behind my little marks and handprints all around. You clean up my handprints but someday whenI'm grown you'll wish you had just one handprint to keep for your own. I made this handprint for you so that one day when I am big you'll remember what my my hand looked like long ago when I was small. HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY!*** I ♥ you so much Angela and thank you.

Hope everyone have a wonderful day!
