Yes I have been trying to make a card ...
a special card was requested ..
and I can honestly say 3 other cards
in to the garbage they went ...
so here is my end product ..
what do you think ???
and this is the inside of the card
and the poem picked for it
I have given the card to who ordered
and she loved it ...
Here is a neat little gift a very dear friend thought....
I might find  neat to have and use
I thought she was giving me a bush of pencils
and I said oh yes Bare can always use pencils in his shop
then she showed me the ends of the pencils
HOW neat...
and these are some of the neat things you can create
 with the
neat pencil eraser stamps ..

Merry Monday Christmas Challenge #99

This week's challenge is brought to you by Margaret Moody! She is looking for some Christmas cards using the colours: 
Brown, Green, Gold with White or Cream!

so this is the card I came up with and the reason behind it was
that my SIL Nina had put up a family challenge
you can go there and watch the video
so I decide to do the Merry Monday Christmas challenge
 using the masking tape
sort of wish I had used softer greens and browns
the picture below show  off gold

then I did another card just simply
to show off the masking again
now the colors used are all Memento
the sentiments are Stampin Up
gold is dollars store paper
and so are the holly used on the xmas card
Make sure you check out the challenge over at
Merry Monday Christmas Challenge
and check out the SIL Nina and Barb
for their awesome takes on the masking challenge
