Yes, I'm Still Here!

Maybe I'll get back into the swing of things with writing blog posts & keeping up on reading them.  I have made some cards & I'm sharing 2 of them today.
First is the card inspired by the previous MFT Color Challenge.  I've never used green & red with snowflakes, but why not?! 
The MFT Snowflake Window is a really fun die & I totally love the MFT Joy.  I used part of a W&W sentiment stamp for the 2 stamped words. 
Both the light green & the die cut Joy are sparkly.

I happened to come across the Gina K Monthly Mix Challenge.  The theme is to remake a card from last year.  I've actually been wanting to use the beautiful GK/HA collaboration set again, so this was just what I needed.  Here's the first card I made inspired by Colleen's cards at the Indiana retreat I went to in October.
Card Made November 2019
It's always amazing to see what a totally different look you can get with the same image.  This time I embossed in SSS Antique Gold on Bristol paper & watercolored with 2 purple & 2 green Zigs.  
The sentiment from the same set was stamped in Versafine Clair Pinecone.  I added purple, green & gold splatters along with gold Pico Embellisher dots.  A friend of mine just had foot surgery, so this is already in the mail to hopefully give her a smile.  I'm also entering SSS Wednesday & WAW

  10. Two gorgeous cards Greta. I love the large JOY word. The remake is stunning, however, I like both versions of that lovely stamp. Still in a post Christmas slump here with lots of watching the Test Cricket and the Tennis.

  12. Why not use those colours together indeed. They look fabulous together. Both your cards on the reuse have used that flower to create a very different appearance. Happy New Year to you. Hugs Mrs A.
