Winter Wonderland

Hi everyone, Happy Sunday to you. Wont bore you with all the goings on in Joeys world but I am not having a great time just now,who invented sickness??? stooopid idea that was. On the plus side though I have finally kicked my nicotine addiction yay its early days but the baby didnt like nicotine either so that solved that I have honestly never had it so easy to give up smoking, with all the failed attempts I have tried over the years a baby comes along and dah daa finito! I am off to see a special counsellor on tuesday evening to keep me on track :O)

Its time for another Winter Wonderland Challenge and this week our theme is "Christmas Past" and you can interpret that however you like :O)This santa really does shout Christmas Past to me, he is a gorgeous stamp from Paperartsy. I covered a piece of vellum with alcohol inks, and stamped my santa using versamark, I covered that with black embossing powder and heated it up. I added some red organza ribbon, gems and the sentiment is Penny Black.

Thanks for joining us with the difficult crackers last week, looking forward to seeing your creations this week :O) be sure to check out my fellow DT creations.

Thanks for stopping by and looking have a fabby day.xxx

Tasha said...

hey Joey beautiful card - love the embossing and love how you used the inks - its stunning. The big red bow finishes it beautifully.

Lol your baby knows what is good for you, keeping you off the cigerettes! That may be partially why you feel so terrible - lack of caffine and lack of nicotine - thats a huge drop in toxins for your body!

Hope you stocked up on ice lollies!
love tasha xx

Hi Joey,

Just thought I'd take a bit of time to pop in and see what you've been up to lately! I haven't had the chance to actually blog hop in quite a while...

You've been really busy! I am so jealous that I don't have the time or discipline to craft as much as I'd like to...

Your creations are fabulous...but then again, you already know that I think that! That's why I asked you to join the team! Glad you accepted!

Hope all is well with you...

Hugs,
Priscilla
