I want to thank two wonderful ladies, Marie M. and Danielle C. for nominating me for this wonderful award. I am honored and humbled and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I am supposed to attach two of my favorite pictures and pass this award on to five deserving people. As much as I would like to comply, time constraints will not allow me to follow all those steps.
I just want you to know that I appreciate this honor very much!!!!

Hello everyone! It's Tuesday and once again the three mega-talented ladies are having a Hanglar challenge using a doily. I have a goal of making at least three Christmas cards a week and this is the first one for this week. I used Glimmer Mist on the doilies and colored the images with copics. Papers are Heidi Grace designs and the embellishments are from last year's stash. If you want to view real works of art you will have to visit Claudia, Carole and Jacque's blogs for inspiration.
I appreciate your visit! Hugs, Christina

Good morning everyone....hope you are having a wonderful weekend! I have been viewing many blogs in the past few days and I have to say that there are so many talented ladies out there making such beautiful cards. You are all such an inspiration!
I made this Kenny K girlie for Friday Sketchers Challenge #116 utilizing a wonderful sketch by the very talented Bea.
The papers are from K&Co.(a gift from my dear friend Jacque....thank you!). The supercute guitar charm was a gift from another dear friend...thank you Claudia!
I sprayed the doily with glimmer mist. It was such a pleasure coloring this cute image. I think my son will get this card for his birthday. I already made a card for him, but I think he will appreciate this one more. He is an accomplished guitarist and used to be in a band.
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. You comments are very much appreciated.

Hello everyone and a very happy Tuesday! Well, the three card making divas, Claudia, Carole and Jacque, are having another Hanglar challenge and this time we are to use hot pink. I think my card is HOT enough, but after I finished it and I took a closer look, I thought "hmmmmmm...should have used a more summery image! Darn....too late! I didn't feel like starting over.
The flowers and tiny ribbon are from a monthly kit I get from Crafty Feeling. If memory serves me right, I think the papers are Girls Paperie. I used a MS heart punch and a gold corner from Kort & Godt.
Thanks so much for visiting. Hugs, Christina

Good morning everyone and a very happy Sunday! I just returned from my walk with "Buddy" and was still contemplating whether this card is "post worthy"...LOL
Well, obviously I decided to go ahead and take the leap! My friend Jacque posted a card on her blog yesterday using the same image and she did a magnificent job!
This is too funny because it is the second time we were working on the same image at the same time!!!!
Well, I used my Stampscapes for the background mountain. Of course, I had to take out the horse.....wouldn't be a western scene without the horse! The corner is from Megahobby and I made the flower with my Nellie Snellen punches. The images were colored with copics.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my sweet friend DANIELLE for the lovely blog award. Unfortunately, I could not fulfill all the requirements due to time constraints, but I am so appreciate to this sweet and wonderful lady.
I am humbled and honored! Thank you!

Good afternoon and a very happy Sunday! My dear friend Jacque and I must have been on the same wavelength because she posted a gorgeous card using the same image that I have been working on. I really love this image, probably because I also love the violin!
