I had this project idea in my head for quite a while and was so happy that I finally felt well enough to create it!  I was originally going to make a tag, but you know me and cards... so here is what I came up with!  I'm having some blogger issues right now so I'm unable to add captions, but you get the gist I'm sure. :0)  I used the Winter Wonderland cartridge for my project.  If you want more details, please just let me know and I'll post the details, but since this is a hop, I'm sure you want to be moving along!  Your next stop is the fabulous Debbie.  Don't forget to leave your comments and become followers to be entered to win the blog candy!  Thank you all for stopping by today. :0)

Jessica said...

What an awesome card! I never would have thought the people from Winter Frolic could be made vintage-like, but you made it happen beautifully!!

I love the detail to your card it is so sweet

Suzanne said...

Beautiful card. Love the papers you chose to make it look vintage. The little girl is very sweet.

Ellen ♥ CardMonkey said...

Amy, I love all the details on your card, and that you incorporated one of my EmbEllies card pins into your design! It gives an idea to make some on more flexible wires (rather than pins) so users can hang them just as you did. Once I get out my tools, I'll make a few and RAK some over to you for you to try! Thank you for the inspiration!!

Dee said...

Amy I love your card. And the item you won from Ellen is a great addition to the bow. It is wonderful. You did a great job. I know that you have been very sick, so you could have pulled out if you needed to, but I am really glad that you were able to participate. You also received a lot of great comments and Linda our new member has also followed through the hop. I will be adding her tomorrow. TFS Dee:)

Wow! This is just beautiful! How did you get the snow to look like that? fantastic!

Even though I don't have Fibro, I kinda know how you feel, I have something called Meniere's disease and had to retire from a job I loved with the Federal Goverment because of it. Sometimes I think being able to do scrapbooking/cardmaking and my dog Louie saved my life. I went into a deep depression, but I have slowly gotten used to being sick and I just do what I can. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. Hang in there, you are VERY talented!
