Hi, Friends! Boy did I have a fun day yesterday! More on that in a moment, but for starters I'll share my CAS holiday card for three challenges. Last year I fell in love with the Endless Wishes stamp set, but before it even arrived at my door it was sold out. Yay, it's back this year in the new Holiday Catalog! I would have posted this card yesterday but I was a bit busy...
My son's girlfriend's sister (no abbreviation for that, that I know of!) is a Marine Biologist at the Long Island Aquarium and also works with The Riverhead Foundation, who rescue and rehabilitate dolphins, porpoises, seals, sea turtles and whales. What an amazing person and what a cool job she has! Anyway, I got a last minute invitation to go to the aquarium (for free) and then have a private "backstage" tour. Needless to say I rescheduled all my other obligations for the day. Wow, what an incredible experience. I now see what difficult work these people do and how commited they are. Thank you, Daniella!
I'm playing along with three challenges today, the "Wreath" theme challenge at Merry Monday, the layout from CAS(E) this sketch, and the colors from The Challenge.
I have such a hard time capturing the sparkle of glitter in a photo. I promise you this is prettier in real life. I just dabbed my Two Way Glue Pen randomly over the wreath and sprinkled some Dazzling Diamonds over it. I know! I used glitter twice in two weeks, amazing!
