C4C 63- Christmas is upon us!

Happy Saturday everyone,

Thank you to everyone who played along with last week's challenge, your square cards were all awesome!

With Christmas only week's away, our challenge hostess for the month Cindy Haffner has challenged us to create a Christmas card or item.

If you would like to play along with us, all you have to do is create a card/project, and upload it to your blog and/or to your SCS Gallery using the keyword C4C63. Don't forget to go back to the Crazy for Challenges Blog and link it on Mr Linky so that everyone else can see it too.

Soooooo are you wondering where I've been??? I've been wondering too~ Nah, just kidding ACTUALLY my father, while dismantling an obsolete Television Antennae Tower inadverdently lopped of the wires for our internet connection.........................GASP~! How awful! It's amazing how dependent one can be on the internet............... I really didn't think I was, but wow! It's been a longggggggggggggggggggggg week~~~

Needless to say, I can share some symptoms of being "internetless":

There is a lack of dust on each and every piece of wooden furniture
All dust bunnies have been banished........ I think I can hear them crying out from the vacuum cannister.
No Bags under my eyes.............. I got plenty of Beauty Sleep this week!
More money in the Bank Account-------Ahem! Get REAL Vicki........a couple trips to Michaels this week leveled it out AGAIN!
My Shower is positively SPARLKY!
Clothes Closet neat and organized.........well actually I had NO choice as my internet connection feeds in through my bedroom, through the closet and into the Kitchen and I didn't want to have to call Search and Rescue to retrieve the repairmen should they have to venture in there!

I could ramble on, but point being, the internet encompasses much more of my time than I realized! It's nice to have everything tidy and organized!

This weekend my Best Friend Jacqui and her son Joel have come to visit! They arrived Wednesday evening and are staying until Sunday. I love her SO much and it's a rare occasion that we spend so much time together! It's wonderful to have someone in your life that even though you aren't face to face often, you remain close in heart. Thanks Jax for all your love and support his weekend, you are my rock!

'kay, now about my card! I used "The Gift" from the Flower Soft Moments in time Collection.

I coloured the image with Copic Markers. The outline of the "sky" is done with Prism Pencils. I added some Polar White Flower Soft to the snow. The DP is from the Basic Grey, Jovial Collection.

Glad to be back in cyber world again! Hope you all have a great weekend!
