On to us a Child is Born

This card is made following sketch #3 on Jacksonbelle challenges. It is a great sketch with lots of variety give it a try. I was so excited. Yesterday my embossing folders arrived from . I have wanted the Swiss Dot folder for ages and they had the folders on sale so of course I bought 3. Today I only used Swiss Dot and I still love it. The blue pearl paper uses the Swirl folder.

The images are from Inkadinkado Christmas package. I used H2Os to paint the images and then I used my versamark and added Dazzling Diamonds to make some sparkle. I wrote the sentiment on the side and yes I changed it from Un to to On to so even though the photo is wrong the card is correct. Oh I do so love mistakes....cause I`m so goooood at it.

When I put it all together I decided it needed something more so I added ribbon and dots. I tried to make dots on the ribbon but I could only get stickles to show up and even they aren`t great.

My DH is away for 8 days to Toronto so I get to be a control freak for the next few days. It`s really not that bad now that the boys are so can even drive them places. Now if I could just convince one of them to feed and put out the dogs. Oh well such a life. Actually I will have lots of time to play since all the boys have their own lives to lead and spending time with Mom is not terribly high on the list. I do wish I had their social lives because they all seem to have places to be, people to talk too. Thank God for cell phones. They allow us all to stay in contact which is very important to me.

Oh, gotta go, DS is here to spend some time with Mom....yeah! yeah! yeah!

Talk soon

Thanks for your sweet comments on my blog! This is such a cute card - I love the embossing in the background! The swiss dots are definitely my favourites!
