Happy Christmas Eve Eve - Crafting When We Can

Happy Christmas Eves Eve everyone :)  I'm just now trying to get back to a normal routine!! I've been super busy :)  And now I have a moment and can share :)  But First!!! We have a new Challenge beginning over at Crafting When We Can this week!! Our theme this week is a Sketch!

I had the great pleasure of working with Amalia's Christmas Present from Dilly Bean Stamps! Megan is an amazing artist.. don't you agree?  I colored the image with copic. I have lost my list of colors!! And my desk is such a mess I'm not surprised.. And well.. Kevin enjoys telling me I have the messiest place in the apartment LOL!! I can't help it!  Anyway... back to my card. 

I really hate that I have lost my list... I write everything down as I use it LOL  Okay.. I'll do my best. I know I used my favorites R22, R24, R27, R29 for the red. I used Crystal Transparent Glitter from The Art Glittering System. I popped her several times in several areas. The sentiment is from TLC Creation. There are tons of great sentiments there. The papers are all scraps from other cards I've made and I can't remember what companies the papers are from. The gems are from my stash. Now, it's your turn! I can't wait to see what you do with this awesome sketch!!


So, Kevin arrived in the USA on December 12th!! He got here in Georgia on December 12th in the evening! The kids and I picked him up at the airport. We stopped and had some dinner and then came home. He loves Chickfila and couldn't wait to stop for a sandwich LOL So, that is what we did. He was pretty worn out... we visited for a while and then headed to bed. I had to work in the morning, so I got up and headed in. I did NOT want to be at work LOL I left a bit early and came home. I had taken Friday off. Friday morning we went and got a marriage license and then Friday evening we went back to the court house with all three of my children and got married. So!! After all of our waiting we are now Husband and Wife :)  And I couldn't be more happy!! We didn't go anywhere because I had to work, but we have enjoyed our time together. I haven't been on the pc too much. I'm just starting to get back to my normal routine. I feel all out of sorts. So, there you have it LOL I've been a bit busy between getting married and Christmas! And I miss all the blogs! I'm trying to get caught up a bit.

Alright... we are off to church soon. I will talk to you all again very soon! I hope you have a wonderful day .. Almost Christmas!!! Merry Christmas everyone!!!
