Just a quick post since Margaret has already posted today.

I have a Christmas card to share using the sketch at The Sweetest Thing.

I used Spellbinders nesties for the silver backgound papers and another nestie to cut out the sentiment from Verve, which is embossed with silver Ranger Extra Detail Embossing Powder.  I added several Swarovski crystals for bling.  Also, I used an MFT Fishtail die for the vellum flag, also embellished with Swarovskis.  All of this is popped up on a card base with 3M foam tape.

I am also entering the following challenges:

My Time to Craft - Christmas in May

Schmitzy got a good report at the vet today - no infection.  However, since he got sunburned on his back (2nd degree) a couple of weeks ago, we now need to put some kind of clothing on him to protect his back while it continues to grow new skin (this from his allergic reaction to an antibiotic in December) so he doesn't get burned again.  It's been a long road to recovery, but we are nearing the end.  Now we just need to treat what's left as a burn and hopefully his skin will toughen up and his hair will grow back (some of it already has, yea!)!

Thanks for stopping by!
