Its time for the first Challenge of 2012 at TIOT

Happy New Year! The new challenge is up over at Try it on Tuesday and the first challenge of the Year is "Do it Yourself" You need to create a card with all your own papers and embellies. No store bought stickers or papers. Easy enough, Huh? I chose to make my card with various Stamps from Tim Holtz and The Stamp Man, Distress inks and distress stains. I love making my own backgrounds it is fun and inspiring to see what you can come up with. Now we would love to see your lovely creations. Just link them up at The Try it on Tuesday blog. You can also see lots more great inspiration there from my teamies. this week we are being sponsored by our wonderful card week Sponsor " One Stop Card Crafts".

Now on another note I am sorry to have been so MIA lately. We have been away on a long holiday to Orlando. It was nice to spend Christmas in Disney and get away from the cold. Unfortunately a cold found me as I wound up sick most of the trip but had fun anyway. Here is a shot of the castle all lit up for the evening.
And this is a bit hard to see but it snowed (yes I did say snow) each night on Main street. It was wonderful. The little white spots in the frame are snow coming down from the roofs of the buildings.
Now it is back to the daily grind of school and work and of course crafting. One of my New Years resolutions is to craft and blog/visit more. Fingers crossed I can accomplish it.
For now I am off to get everything ready for the day.
Thanks for stopping in and hope you had a wonderful New Year and Holiday season. Angela
