Quick Update and Blog Candy

Hi everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Thank you so much for all your concern and wonderful words! My back is much better and the eye infection is gone, thanks to the antibiotic!! I'm waiting for the vision to get back to normal and I'm sitting down to craft for now. Still like to stand up and make cards, it's not the same sitting down....hee hee. I had a bad case of itchy inky fingers, so I made this quick holiday card today (my fingers are feeling much better after some inky love)! :) I love pink for Christmas, do you? If it were up to me, I would have a white Christmas tree with all kinds of pink ornaments on it (I don't think my DH would like that)! :) I think this card might just be my mass produce holiday card for this year, hope you like it!!



I just got the November issue of Cards and Scrapbook Trends magazines. They are featuring two of my cards and one layout in there. I'm so excited and honored to be among so many talented artists! To celebrate my first publication ever, I have some blog candies for you! Just leave me a comment by Friday 11:59pm PST and I will randomly pick one winner for the goodies. Winner will be announced on Saturday. Good luck and have a beautiful week!



Supplies for the card: Hero Arts stamps, flowers, pearls, StampinUp card stocks

Thank you for stopping by!!
