Wishing you a blessed Christmas!

Hello to you and a great big Thanks! for looking in~
I want to let you know I may not be posting anything for a while; well, possibly till February~
I am a full-time bookkeeper and do lots of accounting and some work related travel  at the years end.  This is a busy time any way, with Christmas and New Years just a few weeks away!
Perhaps I'm jumping the gun a bit - - but just in case I don't make it back for a while, I wanted you to know why~  I certainly hope to do some blog visiting though;  So I'll see you at your place! :)

Well today I am posting a card I made a looong time ago!  - but is a favorite for me.
Old world Santa and burlap
I used a distressed card base, a layer of red burlap, then white burlap, a piece of corrugated board with some Gesso 'snow', the image from a friend, and a few berries & such, & a whisp of raffia. The white button is from Grama's jar.  There is a generous amount of white glitter too~

How are your holiday preparations going?  From what I see in my 'Readers List' there is much Creativity going on!!  Hard to believe Christmas Eve is just 2 weeks from today.  In my family we love the festivities of this celebration of Jesus' birth - along with reaching out to others with gifts of love, good will, and best wishes!
I Thank each one of you for your loving support and dear friendship~  My life has seen it's share of difficulties these last few years and I truly and sincerely appreciate your love and encouragement!

Wishing for you a very blessed Christmas and very Happy New Year!
Love and hugs,

Neutral Christmas card~

Thanks to all who stop in!  I sure appreciate you taking time to look~
Hopefully  : ) just a quick post for me to share a card I created last week.
I couldn't seem to get a good clear shot of this one.  The sky has been quite dark and grey for days and so with just the artificial light - I get the shadows . . .

There is a bottom layer of pale pink cardstock, then black cardstock, cheesecloth, a pale greenish-blue that you can hardly see 'peeking thru'; and then the image. (From ShabbyArtsBoutique blog - KerryAnne is so kind.)
 I tucked in some white Prills beads, glitter and sequins.  Added bits of texture paste and paint, not too much,   just here & there along the top & bottom sides.
 A little punched snowflake~
I am hoping to enter this tomorrow at Wens:    Simply Neutral Tuesday's Party!!
Hope you can peek in on Tuesday and see what's new~  Always delightful art!

 Two white jingle bells, white cotton twill tape, seam binding, cotton twine and a pearl on top.
Thank you for the visit!  Wishing you a wonderful creative week~  We are cooold and a bit snowy up here in NW Montana~  Sure fits the Christmas Season to be sure~
Loving hugs to you,
