Thankful for 2012

It is hard to believe that 2012 is almost over. It has been a great crafting year. My first post on my new blog (after taking a few years off) was in May. Since then I have met some wonderful people and got reacquainted with some old friends. I have been introduced to some fabulous companies and challenge blogs. I have accumulated two Iris carts full of supplies. It is no where near what I use to own, but it is a great start. I had my first experience with Copics, which I totally love and I coordinate an awesome group of ladies on the Inky Impressions DT. I cannot express how much it means to me to be back creating. I feel so blessed! Ok I will stop rambling. Now onto today's card. :o)

I made this for the Saturated Canary challenge. Here is the photo to be used as inspiration.


I decided to use Princess Red Rose because it and the top, right inspiration photo both have a tree. I also gained inspiration from the colors, sparkle, round bulbs, and tree needles in the photos.



Other supplies:
Ribbon - Paper Issues
Gems & Pearls - Inky Impressions
Fancy Flourish die - MFT
Punches - Marth Stewart
Paper - my stash
Coloring - Copics
Glitter glue - Studio G
Doily - Wilton
Misc. tulle

I am playing in the following challenges:
Saturated Canary: photo inspiration
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes
Totally Gorjuss: new (deco fan punch)
Charisma Cardz: anythign goes
DYSU: turquoise [last challenge :( ]
The Paper Shelter: anything goes

You can find my blog candy here.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Until next time...........
