Belles 'n Whistles Christmas Glitter

Hi Friends!  Well, this week at Belles 'n Whistles Challenge blog, the most talented and lovely Lynda gave us a fun and super easy challenge .. "Christmas Glitter"!  Yayyy!  And you know I LOVE glitter!  I used glitter on the edges of all my papers and also on all my flowers .. can't get enough of it!  ;)

This first card was whipped up tonight .. luckily I already had the image colored and prepared from the days that I'm feeling good.  So all I did tonight was put everything else together.  :) 


Stamp:  Snowfight Snowbaby  (ohhhh how I LOVE her!!)
Paper:  MME
Medium:  Prisma Colored Pencils w/OMS

Now this second card is something that I had completed recently during my "good days".  This one actually is pretty special for me.  I started colouring this image all the way back in October .. and while I started colouring this .. I received the news from the doctor over the phone that I indeed had breast cancer.  I did not touch any of my crafting supplies for a long time, didn't want to even look at any of my craft things actually.

And only recently, I completed colouring her and finishing this card up.  To me, it symbolizes me completing all of my treatments that I still need to undergo .. and by golly .. it WILL be completed successfully!  :)


Paper:  K&Co, Prima
Medium:  Prisma Colored Pencils and OMS

Alright, I'm signing out for now!  I'm still not feeling very well .. not only is the chemo and the shot wearing me out, but I have caught a nasty cold as well.  I'm coughing up a storm like I'm entering in the Guiness World Book of Records or something .. LOL!!  So I'm off to rest now!

Please don't forget to join us at Belles 'n Whistles Challenge!  :)  We'd love to see you there!

Thank you so much for all of your love and support!

May the best of your todays, be the worst of your tomorrows ...
