Happy Birthday, MMSC34

Hello, our last week in 2009!  I trust you all had a Merry Little Christmas and as much as I like Christmas, I am just as happy to have it behind me ( no pun intended, LOL) and get back to my 'normal' routine. I already have my Christmas tree down and any decorations related to the Holiday season.  I really DO see why some go out of town skiing or on cruise during holidays, am I the only one that feels this way, I really am not a scrooge!!.  My next thing is to give my house a good cleaning which I am happy to say I have started on that yesterday, today and maybe tomorrow should do it if I do not get distracted and go off and do other things.  Like that NEVER happens.   Let me introduce my card this week, a birthday card, one can always use one of those, I like how her hat came together and her bow on her collar, something new for me.

I went with brown, metallic gold and some pinks.

The inside.  I have patterned paper here but quite pale so one can still write a birthday greeting inside. Fran from the Frantic Stamper Inc. is the sponsor of our Monthly Bonus Prize Winner. You can visit Fran at her store at the Frantic Stamper Inc.  Fran is so generous with a Mega gift package valued at over $250.00.

Other than the MMSC, I have entered this in the  Crafty Creations, #47 where they have 'no rules' this challenge so I am going to squeak this card in as my second entry.  I also found the Challenge Blog Charismacards, and this week is anything BUT Christmas.

Thanks for stopping by, have a safe and Happy News Years.  Hugs ~ Jane

  3. Hello Jane - I love this 'work of the heart' and how you have done things that are different for you - you have given such a nostalgic feel, especially with those gorgeous colours.

  7. Jane you have done a very unique and charming interpretation to the sketch challenge this week. It is so inspiring. I love the colors and all your wonderful embellishments. Good for you getting all your decorations down. I have not started yet. I get very nostalgic when I take them down and put them away. Each piece has so many memories and I basically shed some tears while I pack it up...so I put it off until after New Year's Eve. Maybe this year will be different because I am so ready for 2009 to be over with. 2010 is New Beginnings!!! Best Wishes to you and yours for a very Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year!!!

    Bear Hugs,
    Carol :o}
