Have A Question On How I Did Something? PLEASE READ!

I love to share what knowledge I have. I'm finding it more and more difficult to respond to your questions because some of you are not leaving a way for me to contact you. I am not ignoring those of you who have questions, but the majority of the time no contact information is given so I am unable to respond to your inquiries. If you are serious about me answering the questions you ask and do not have a Blogger account with an email address linked to it, please leave your email address or email me with your question at and I will get back with you. If you email me, be sure to put "blog question" in the subject line so I won't think it's SPAM and delete it.

I'm Back...But Only For A Short Visit

Good Morning Everyone! I'm back but only for a short visit. While I survived the cataract surgery and am able to see again, I now have other issues. I thought I had a pinched nerve but the x-ray proved that was not the case, I now have to go for a nerve study to see why I am having such pain when bending and reaching. It was scheduled yesterday but when I woke up Monday, the pain was gone so I cancelled only to have the pain return. To make a long story short, I am now scheduled for the end on the month. I wanted to share the last of my Christmas cards with you.  Here is a doghouse shaped card I did for our vet done with a pine bough from Impression Obsession, the dogs from Scrapping Cottage and the doghouse that that I did in my Silhouette. It's a re-do of the card I made awhile back that I wasn't happy with...the dogs are a perfect likeness of our dogs Triskett and Charlee--
 Here's the money holder for our dog groomer---
The Mickey ornament was done with a Mickey head that I attached the holder to and cut out the word joy in my Silhouette. I also scanned the pine bough die into my computer, imported it into Silhouette so I could reduce it in size---
 Here's another die cut from Scrapping Cottage that I scanned into my computer then imported it into my Silhouette, not so I could reduce it in size but so I could do an offset of the snowflake wreath. The mittens are from the Silhouette online store---
 These next 6 CAS were also done with my Silhouette---

This winter house is a die cut from Scrapping Cottage that I scanned then imported into Silhouette so that I could reduce it in size. I took the picture before I added the bling to the Star of Wonder from Memory Box---
Here a quick and easy card done with the border die from Scrapping Cottage...I added bling to the larger snowflakes of the background paper after the picture was taken---
 Another card done with the winter house from Scrapping Cottage done in full size---
A CAS card that I saw on Pintrest and thought it was cute...I added the cardinals done in my Silhouette---
Here's a Halloween card I forgot to post prior to my eye surgery. Done with clipart and a few cuts from the Silhouette on line store---
That's it for now...Thanks for stopping by to take a peek. I'll try not to be such a stranger and stop by all that leaves a comment but it will have to be spread over the next few days. I am in such pain every time I twist, bend or reach. Enjoy your day and I'd like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a very merry Christmas!

Glad to see you creating again. All of above are great as always. Hope you get better soon. I have numbness in my hands and fingers from a pinched nerve also. I have to have this checked after the holidays also. Good Luck to you. Merry Christmas.
