2013 Holiday Hugs

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Well the hectic place of Christmas is over.

My son and daughter-in-law and granddaughter have gone and my home is quiet. No more patter of little feet or her bursting into my bedroom looking for me. We loved having them and playing with Phoenix Daisy for hours on end.

I didn't get everything done that I wanted to but somehow it didn't matter. Family doesn't care about the stuff being done. It was a good lesson learned for me this year.

I did get to make cookies with my 2 year old granddaughter. It was so much fun.  I bought her an apron and she loved wearing it.

In fact, she liked it so well that it didn't come off until bedtime. Here is a photo of the both of us in our aprons. My hubby caught us both saying "cheese". I created a memory for the both of us.

Well, onto my card for today. This one I made for my post on the Great Impressions Blog. I needed a card to give to my neighbor along with some of my home made Christmas candy.  So, I decided to make a New Years card.

To start my card I stamped my background with the Great Impressions Stamp - "Fireworks & Stars G303" in black ink and then I wet embossed. I layered that on a opal metallic paper.

My 2013 is cut from a Sizzix alphabet set in the same silk opal metallic card stock. Layered that on black card stock and punched a few stars. My sentiment is "holiday hugs A143".

Well that's my card for today. So until next time........God bless.

Some other challenges:
1. Simon Says Stamp has an anything goes challenge.
2. Card Crafters Circle has an anything goes challenge.
3. CraftyMess Blog wants us to show some sparkle/bling.
