Hi there!! I hope you all had a marvelous weekend :) It's SONday night here, and I'm winding down from many things going on at the same time but lucky enough to sneak in a few minutes to post this swap I was in from SCS :) We happen to have a couple of hours to visit our town's Enchanted Christmas Forest - it's a beautiful fairgrounds that is decorated all year long but only open during the "Christmas Season" with rides and games and food galore! It plays only Christmas music, has *snow* that falls around areas and the kids were riding rides over and over all night - they wanted to stay til closing time (midnight) but 5 hours was enough for us! :)
And it's a Forest on my blog, too! If any of you know Jeanette from SCS, you'll know her swaps and threads are among the best there is! She is not only creative, and juggling like 4 DT's at the same time with precision, but is truly one of the sweetest gals around to know on a personal level ...... she is my confidant, my prayer partner, and a truly beautiful soul! And Luck Be A Lady tonight, imagine my squeals of delight and shock when random.org pulled her name as the winner of my Deedee's Blog Hop candy - what a God-cidence!! Congrats to you, my dear friend, and please stop by the Crafting Challenge blog to find out what to do next! :)
So it's only fitting I show you the card I made for her swap! It's part of her ongoing "Forest" theme swap she has that are oodles of fun - I highly recommend you check them out in her next round of swapping - you will not be disappointed!
Using my old school rubbah, lol, I had a blast inking up this gorgeous set "down by the pond" from TGF. I've had it for forever and sadly hardly ever play with ink & rubbah anymore. I think I kept the tin of stazon under my nose a full minute - LOVE that smell! :p Paired with my trademark bright and whimsical style of paper, K & Co, this card came together quite easily. I had these colored last month and set them aside, and finally had a chance to get them together yesterday morning to be ON TIME, hee hee!
Thanks for stopping by! My son is in the Thanksgiving play tomorrow at school - he's a pilgrim with some pretty big lines :) So off to bed for me and I'll see you all on your blogs/threads tomorrow afternoon! x0x0x0
