First Christmas Card of 2010

Good Morning!!

I could not sleep so what's a girl to do--stamp and blog. I received a call from a woman the other day from the Ronald McDonald house here in Buffalo. She had received some of my cards at some point (they had my name and address info on the back). She asked if I would be willing to make some more to donate to the charity. How could I say no, I felt honored. So, I am in the process of making some very simple cards for them, not like the Maggies I make at all. Still great cards but they can't take me forever to make and need to be easy to mail too.
Today's card is my first Christmas card that I have stamped for this year!! WOOHOO!! Only about 90 or so left to make. :) I used an image by Penny Johnson (Stampavie). I colored it in with Copic Markers. The base is Stampin Up card stock, next is some DP I got from Joann's that I pierced around the outside and added a ribbon around it, the next layer is the image. I cut it out with nesties, popped the image up with dimensionals and sponged around it with Versamagic to soften it a bit. I then added two corduroy brads from Stampin Up and a Gingham Bow. I so love this stamp. Isn't she cute?? I picked her up at my LSS--Buffalo Stamps and Stuff. Just love that place.
Yesterday went to the doctor for my back. They gave me some medicines to try. They switched my pain medicine which is good and bad, good because it really wasn't working but bad because the copay is so much more. The cost of prescriptions, even with insurance, is crazy. I go today for my yearly mammogram, oh fun!! I should be getting a shipment of Copics today. They usually ship within 2 days. I order from and have found them to have the best prices around. Shipping is free over $50 I believe. I had a huge order though because I combined with my Mom and her friend too. There is a link to them on my side bar they carry more than just Copics. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you...I was lucky enough to win some blog candy!! WOOHOO!!! Doing the happy dance, lol. I commented on Jacque's blog and my name was actually pulled out of hundreds of entries, can you believe it. I won some very Yummy PINK stuff for breast cancer awareness, it's all so awesome!! I have to find her blog and will post it for you to take a look. Check them out! Hope you all have a great day!! Keep Safe, Keep Warm, Keep Smiling!!

Happy Stamping,
