Christmas Raks, and FUN News!!

I am so bad at posting cards people have sent me...............but late is better than never........or something like that.........

This one is from Sue Neal!! She was giving away the prettiest little glittery embellishments on her blog and I signed up and she sent me some - what a sweetie!! I used them on this card here!

I would love to know if that is a hand punch or hand cut little thing-ys where the brads are?

Does anyone know?

This blingy card is from Kim and Kelly at The Paper Pickle AND it had a free stamp rental card
AND a $20 gift certificate inside - sweet!

I heard hubby say something about the amount of money I spend there and the gift certificate -

and blah blah blah.........

This is from that sweetie Diane LaPointe, who I met blogging and
she is awaiting a liver transplant,
which is amazing since I have already had a liver transplant AND we have the same doctor - very weird!! (not the doctor - just the circumstances of how/why we met)

And of course Allison, who, not only is a fellow DT member of Little Paper Shop,
but is expecting a baby and has a full time job and keeps up her fabulous blog and lets everyone know what is going on in the blogging world!!

and the best one of all .........sorry girls, I have a from our 2 year old grandson Jake - isn't it cute and he is so smart to be able to figure out that Sizzix machine at such a young age........ haha!

Okay, onto the news!!

I have been asked to join Madelynn's Twinkling Tuesday sketch challenge team and I am thrilled to pieces because the sketches will be done by an eight year old girl, Jessica's daughter Madelynn.
Very cute and very sweet! How could I turn THAT down??!

You will see the sketch here every Tuesday, and you are so welcome to join in the fun and play!!
You can see the rest of the design team on the right hand side of my blog under the cute little blog blinkie/banner/thing-y!!
