OUR CHARITY:

Reading is Fundamental is the charity Suzanne have chosen to sponsor this season.  As you all know Suzanne is an avid reader and it amongst my very favorite things to do in my spare time.  I truly believe that literacy and reading opens up many doors in life for everyone.  Not only can you find joy in books but it opens your eyes to other cultures, places and people that is so worthwhile.  And just the fact that a huge part of life involves being able to read--to get through school, get a great job and navigate through life.  For me teaching children to read early on in life is a MUST yet so many children are not provided with the basic materials to learn to read.  So this charity is a non-profit that provides books to children and opportunities to bring literacy into areas that need it! Their is a place on Color Me Creative where you can donate some money if you would like too.

Golden Christmas 2011 side My image is from Leaves of time.  It is one of their Vintage images. I cut it out with my spellbinders grand labels #23. I rounded all the corners with Fiskars corner rounder. Ribbon is cream and has gold writing. Distressed the edges with distress ink antique linen. My card stock I used is a Pearl cream. The next two layered are from DWCV Holiday paper Package. I used for the corner the punch from Punch a Bunch called corner star and added the stars to look like they are falling down. What she is standing on is Stampin”up Champagne glass glitter. For the flowers I used the mini and small flower punch and the Branch punch from Martha Steward. Pearl Pen color ice white, spica color gold, gold glitter, beedz glass embellishment gold, ice stickles glitter glue.

Golden Christmas close up These are the copic colors I used. E43, E42, E41, E40, YR24, YR23, AND YR21. I do hope you join us. Those are some wonderful prizes. Have a wonderful week. Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Patricia
