My Hero & Friend

Can you believe it's already Thursday? Time sure flies by quickly. The other day a co-worker said hey, it's 9 months before Christmas. It's definitely not around the corner but will be here in no time!! With that said, I think it's great idea to at least start making your Christmas cards...join in on the fun each Monday with Christmas Stampin' All Year Long. I have had this image stamped, colored and ready to be put on a card for about a month or so but just did not get around to it. I finally did find the right colors to match.
I used liquid pearls around the sentiment as an accent and used my oval nestabilities to create that background for the images.
Isn't this an adorable card?? I got this card in the mail from my friend Joy. We participate in a monthly swap where you create a card with any stamp and any kind of sketch. To find out more about it, check out Teri's blog. I love shaker cards , you can put all kinds of things in it and..the other thing about it, is that it is used to calm people...
Anyway, hope your day is going well!!
Thanks for taking to time to stop by.
