Sabrina been? Well, to share a little with you what has been happening....first about two weeks ago I had these terrible migraine headaches I told you all about and then my entire family got bitten by whatever is going around (NOT that bad, bad flu bug thank GOD) but whatever it was/is, it still has my little one down and she is pretty cranky to say the least :D. Anyhow I am trying to catch up with getting back into things. Friday night I made some yummy, really yummy Zucchini Bread and almost cut my finger off, yep, my Mom sent me a brand new grater, one of those fancy ones and I was going a bit too fast and cut part of my thumb off (well, a little ;D) and it is not letting me function like I would like to. I tell you, it is pretty amazing how much you need your thumb. I am without bandages and such since this morning but it hurts like crazy. I made 2 cards earlier, some quick ones, which seems to be the only kind I have been making lately, LOL. The first one is a card I made for the Divine Design Bible Verde Challenge over at SCS. It has been great fun to create a card or other project throughout the year, only one more month left but those cards have been coming in handy when you need a quick card to encourage someone with scripture. If you would like to find out more about this fantastic challenge click here to find out more. I sure hope these ladies will continue this challenge next year.
Paper: PTI Kraft, Moss recycled card stock, CraftySecrets Earth pad

I was having some trouble taking this photo...for some reason the colors are not true. The green is much more muted IRL and the DP is very soft as well.
Here is another shot, this time from the inside of the card
For my second card I have for you all today, I used one of my brand new embossing folders I received last week from HSN. I have no idea what the name of the folder is though. That is the thing when you order specials like that, they don't come in the wrapper that tell you what it is :C.
Anyhow, the folder is gorgeous. The card is very non-traditional as far as the colors go. I was surfing the blogging world a while back and saw this color combo and loved it. I am sorry, but I can't remember who's blog I visited :C.
So here is my chocolate white Christmas card
Paper: PTI white, SUY Chocolate Chip
Stamps: Inkadinkado Reindeer, ISC Festive Season
Ink: SU Close to Cocoa
Accessories: Nesties scalloped ovals large, Cuttlebug embossing folder Christmas 2009-2010 from HSN, pearl Dew Drops, foam tape, 3D foam dots
So, what do you think?
I think that I will be making a few of these as they will not require extra postage ;D.
Well, this is it for me for right now. Thank you so very much for stopping by. I truly enjoy reading your comments.
