First attempt at a card upload...

Hello my faithful friends and followers!  (I hope you know how much I appreciate every single one of you).  I figured I would take a test run of uploading a card - since I am still recovering from surgery and not supposed to be crafting quite yet I am uploading a previously created card.  I created it for sketch challenge WMSC19 and I am very proud of it because Claire and her team at Waltzingmouse Stamps liked it enough to honor me with a 'Top Mouse' Award (squeak!  squeak!  - polishing the blinkie on my sidebar).  Okay, let's see if this works...
OOOH!  Look at that!  WOO HOO!  Okay, the deets on this card.  I stamped the holly leaf images from Waltzingmouse's 'Sewing Box Christmas' onto Glorious Green and Green Galore cardstocks, cut them out and layered one on top of another.  Then I stamped three holly berries onto Real Red cardstock and punched them out using a 3/4" circle punch.  The middle berry is raised with a dimensional and I added rhinestones to their centers for a little sparkle (I love bling!  Don't you?), then I adhered the lollipop ribbon and bow and stamped the sentiment over it.  Really, it is a pretty easy card to make and it fits in a regular sized business envelope, which is convenient, don't you think?
Hey, that was FUN!  I can't wait to start adding NEW creations now!  Thanks for visiting!  Hope you have a terrific day and a fun-filled weekend!
