Happy Monday Everyone!! Can't believe the weekend has flown by and this week it is Christmas. Yikes!!! I am still not ready but I am afraid Christmas will come whether I am ready or not. I am not sure if it is from stress or if I pulled a muscle in my neck and shoulder when reaching for something but now I can't move my right arm very well or turn my head to the right. Very painful and it is really throwing my equilibrium off. Makes you get a headache and feel nausea. It is amazing how important each and every part of your body is and you don't realize how important it is until you hurt it. I am so blessed to be healthy and have full function most of the time. Makes me appreciate those that don't.

Anywho...I will be sharing some creations with you this week but most of which I have already made. Phew! I am moving very slowly with my current issues in my back, shoulder and neck.

I was so excited to see my dear friend Pam aka Pam124 be honored at featured stamper this past Sunday. Congrats Pam! I wanted to case one of her creations all week and finally had the opportunity. It was hard to choose just one but in the end I chose this one:;ppuser=176085 I kept Pam's layout but changed some of my colors, added corners on the bottom and added the flower soft globe, I recently got from Our Daily Bread Designs. The background red is scored and the snow in the globe is created with liquid applique. I also incorporated the LSC251 silver and gold with all my silver baubles.

Stamps: Our Daily Bread Designs: Worship the Lord
Paper: Dark red, Bitter Chocolate, white
Accessories: Flower Soft Globe display globe, copics, white satin ribbon, liquid applique, Lattice corner from Spellbinders, silver baubles

Thanks so much for stopping by today!! I hope you enjoyed today's creation as much as I enjoyed making it. I am loving these flowersoft globes!!

May the peace and joy of the season be with you this Christmas and into the new year!!!!! I have been blessed with so many wonderful friends here!!
