So happy to be back! / Today belongs to you Card

I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas and is still enjoying getting out and visiting your friends and family, our Christmas was amazing and still is although my waist is not happy with me, hehe!

 I want to thank all of you for such wonderful support and comments about the accident my sister and I were in, We are feeling soooooo much better and reading your comments really help lift my spirits and Norma's...just knowing you took your time to read bad news especially during Christmas!! Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I still have a very sore back  and will be only doing what I can in moderation and I am off to a great start!!! I love this card... It has to be one of my favorites of mine to date.

Click on image to see the sparkly details!

For the background I used a small grill, I placed it on an angle and stamped with Tim Holtz black distress ink.
The red polka dot background was fabric that covered a bottle of cranberry sauce, let me tell you that bottle was decked out and it was delicious, the cranberry sauce that is, lol

I got these photo slides and the butterfly from Kelly (Theresa's mom!) for Christmas along with  many other awesome scrap items I can't wait to try, eeek!

The pure life button came with a stamp set I ordered from Jaded Blossoms and the arrows I doodled

If you click on the image you can see where I added silver stickles to give that extra sparkle , I really love how this turned out.

I have projects ready for all week and can't wait to show them to you and don't forget it is time for a freebie which I will give away Wednesday, I am happy to say I created a card using my own digital which is a rare occurrence but will become routine to help give you inspiration! Oh yes , getting down to business, I am so thrilled to be back.

So, so glad you are back and on the mend. Thanks for popping over and leaving me some love. I am also happy I could teach you something about New Year's traditions. It is an interesting world we live in, isn't it?

I really like your card and am looking forward to what the rest of the week has in store. Oh and BTW, I sent you a Christmas card through PunchBowl. Unfortunately, it is probably lost out their with your birthday card that you still never got. Oh well, I tried...Anyways, have an awesome New Year my friend.

HI Sweetie, it is good to see you , glad you had a good Christmas and I am sort of sorry you are still sore. I know that sounds horrible, but I am so glad you can feel it and be with us then the alternative. I lost my brother in a roll over and he left a wife and 4 children so when I read your account, I was so so so so happy you are still with us. I love your grill idea and the card with all the embellishments is wonderful. Anyway, Have a happy new year Sweetie. hugs, Cathy K

Hi Naomi, lovely to have you back blogging - I see three posts in my email box, will get through them tonight hopefully. Life has been super busy here and a lot happening (plus away too). Not good you are still sore, but understandable with what you and your sister went through. Like Cathy above, I also lost a brother in a roll over in 1990 - Blessings you are both fine though!! What a miracle!
The reason you cannot see larger versions of the layout of my Mother, is due to it being published - had to be removed from my blog.
May 2013 be a truly wonderful year for you Naomi my dear relative (one of my favourites too lol).... enjoy your crafting, let things that are not important slide and live your life doing the things you want.... xx
