Hi Friends. Today I have a card that I made using Tracey's Winter Chickadee from the Fred She Said collection. You can find this image here. Tracey designed the Christmas Bird Series that includes these Chickadees, a Cardinal, and a pair of Robins. They are so beautiful. I encourage you to check them out.
This is my card with the matching envelope. The berry branches and pine cones are from Martha Stewart that I picked up last year in her Christmas collection. They go beautifully with this image. I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page, a Spellbinders label die, rhinestones, ribbon, stickles and the Noel sentiment is a Recollection sticker. My paper is DCWV Christmas stack.This is the inside of my card. I repeated the matching Chickadee images and Martha Stewart PATP. What a fun card inspired by the beauty of nature.
My son Ryan gave me a terrible scare. He came home from Baseball Saturday night with a horrible bug bite on his face. We put some anti-biotic cream on it and covered it. Well, a few days go by and he is not getting over it. He called us from school saying something was wrong, he was sweating profusely and not doing anything and that his "bug bite" was hot and really swollen. So we got him into the Doctor's right away and he was diagnosed with MRSA. This is scary to me as my Mother almost lost her thumb from this super staph infection. With this being on Ryan's face-you can image how I felt!!! We got an anti-biotic and have been irrigating this wound with peroxide 3 times a day. In a couple days it is starting to look so much better. God is good to us! My Mother took 6 months to get over hers. So that was my drama for the week. Thanks for stopping by and listening to me prattle here. Hope you are having a great week!
