It is all about Friends and Family


its all about friends and family 2013
Welcome everyone!! This time of year is a magical time and it is all about friend and family and it's almost Christmas and we all have family and friends we enjoy spending time with at this time of the year, we also have family and friends that we don't see or visit with often enough but still mean just as much to us! That is where my fellow design team member from all the teams I’m on mean so much to me and all the fearless leaders like at Color Me Creative challenge site each year we do a little something just to tell Suzanne how much we appreciate everything she does for us. This is my Christmas card to Suzanne this year. She is a fantastic lady and I wish her and the family A Merry Christmas and the best New Year. Have you ever been to Suzanne’s  blog she has the best stories ever and as the years have gone by we have watched her children grow up, daughter going off to collage, kids being sick all the things family do as years go by.  So we would love for you to join in on our blog hop. So if you are doing the blog hop that means you came from Linda Payne blog and the next place you need to go is Christine Riley’s blog. Have fun and I hope this gives you some inspiration.

The papers are from my scraps. I did real sewing on my mini sewing machine. Used some pearl pen color gold. Distress ink around the edges color vintage photo.

I also want to wish everyone at I Brake For Stamps Blog design team and Della a Wonderful Christmas and a Special New Year, I really enjoy all of the fantastic ideas and inspiration and look forward in creating all kinds of new projects in the new year. If you would like to check out the store.
How I did the angel, I colored her with copic markers and added score tape over the image and added diamond dust glitter and rubbed it in real hard and then went very lightly with the same colors of copic markers over but just in some area’s. The glitter takes real good to the copic colors so you want to make sure you do not add to much color.

You know I can’t forget all the friends at The Outlawz design team and besides that all the fantastic girls that work so hard for me at Twisted Thursday challenge, they are the best designers ever. From all of the design teams, I have made friends all over the world and I do not say that lightly. Daily I talk to people from Australia, Norway, England, Canada, Africa, India, Ireland and there are so much more. We learn so much from each other. It does not matter where you live it is all about friends, family, the joy of life and crafting. The surprising thing is that I have had the opportunity to meet some of these people because of the crafting world is so wide spread. I can’t forget about all my followers (friends) that stop by and leave me a comment, that’s what makes this all worth while because if it was not for you, why would I do this?  Thanks for stopping by and I wish you a VERY Merry Christmas and that you make all the memories and treasured times you can with your family and friends.
