Merry Christmas

HI friends… lucky me.. I have a card for Just Magnolia for this week to join. I don’t know what is going on with me. Ever since I pulled my muscle and I was off my craft table I have such a hard time go back and craft. Maybe it is just that kind of the year where it is so yucky outside and soon dark, I feel I have no energy in my body. I hope I will get of this period soon because it is a pain in the behind Smile. Earlier this week I spent almost my entire “kid-free” time on youtube and crochet blogs.OMG I got totally lost.. what a new world opens there Smile colors, ideas and so many pretty things. How many hours must a day have to be able to do all these fun things. Well back to the card
Our challenge on Just Magnolia is distressing. My card has slight distressed edges and distress inks the outside corners and  inside edges are heat embossed with gold detail embossing powder. Thank you dear Carole for purchasing my card mwah!
Supplies: Basic Grey – paper
Sentiment: outside is by my amazing talented friend Nicole! and the inside uses Stampin up Sentiments
Dies: Spellbinder large snowflake

Well.. today I would love to share a little love with two wonderful people who support my blog with comments and visits.  I know how blessed iam, that so many of you come to my blog and look and read my postings. Iam grateful for each and every one of you.  So, today I would love to give 2 blog candies away without asking you do anything for it Smile.
First candy goes to Rosa Armstrong for one of the ladies I know who comes to my blog for a while now, she represents the ones of you who read my blog but do not have a blog.
The other candy I picked from the comments left on my card yesterday is Sarah form Crafty Mum.
Rosa and Sarah, please email me to claudiaesrosa –at – to claim your new Christmas stamp.

  I wished I could give each and every one of you something. Tomorrow I have a small candy up for everyone to join in. No strings attached Smile
