A New Year, A New Beginning

It's been over a month since I've posted last. December was a month that wasn't very happy. My SIL passed away suddenly and unexpected. The holidays are over and now I'm ready to enjoy them, lol. 
Next week I will be having shoulder surgery, so my playing with paper won't be happening until after I'm healed. I've been trying to get a jump start on challenges through the end of February. And prepare my guys for me being out of commission for a few weeks.

I went to Michael's after Christmas, all of their Christmas stock was 70% off! I bought a Christmas Stack by Recollections, I absolutely love it. The stack is filled with pages upon pages of Retro/Nostalgic images. I wish I would have bought 2, one to use and one to look at. I made this thank you card from the stack. The snowflake is wooden and from a pack of embellishments which was also on clearance. I sprayed it with black alcohol ink, then sprayed again with a bronze glimmer mist. The photo doesn't pick up the glimmer, but it's there and I am quite happy with it.

Thanks for stopping by. I'm hoping to keep more up to date and am going to try to one handed, one finger type after next week. Doctor said I should only be down for about 2 weeks. I sure hope he's right!

And no blog post would be complete without a picture of my Petey! Petey was a rescue pup, we got him entirely too young and he has a lot of issues. We're trying our best to work with him. We haven't given up on him and most would have by now. He is my little 80 pound love bug.
