I'm making an even more concerted effort this year than usual to have a lot of my Christmas cards made before the holiday season begins. When I saw the current Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge to use an item found around the house, I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Years ago I saw a cinnamon stick used on a card (can't remember exactly how) & have wanted to incorporate that idea ever since. I never quite got to it last year & I didn't make any cards with the wonderful Flourishes Peace & Joy set. Determined to remedy that situation, I did get a card made. The ornament is watercolored with Memento inks after being gold embossed. A Cuttlebug folder is used for the card front & Spellbinders dies for the circles. The sentiment is from another Flourishes set called A Gift For You--beautiful font! Crystal Laquer worked great to glue on my cinnamon stick. Last chance to win the new Flourishes release, so fingers crossed!
Our 14 1/2 yr old puppy dog, Keesha, has an infection--a rough Friday, but she seems better today. Thankfully I have the weekend off as hubby really thinks the nurse in the family should be available whenever someone is sick--LOL! We never expected to have her this long so are thankful for every day, but it's still so hard to think of loosing her. I know some of you will understand.
Thanks for coming by today & hope you have a wonderful weekend.
