Frosty today!

Hi, and welcome!

Oooooooo........stirred up a few wasps with my rant about purple ........ha!

Ace, if your bathroom is purple, we can still be friends.....I just will have to take a porta-potty when visitin'!

Christina.......what can I say?.........will admit don't mind a teeny bit of purple, but it definitely should know where it's place is.....and that is NOT as the main!

Seems I'm in the least where my bloggie pals are I'll graciously accept that purple is small!

You know that I'm the nursery leader, at my Church, right?.............nope.....not any more......sigh :(

Last Sunday, I was told that my time in the nursery has come to end..........everybody in the ward is "called" for an undetermined time, but our nursery workers are usually in there for about two years.........and my two years are up!
Boy, that went by far too quickly..........I'm a little upset.....those ickle people are very dear to me........but somebody else now gets to play, teach, hug, and love 'em...........bigger sigh :(

As for me.....who knows?.....haven't been given a new assignment.....yet!!!  But, we are a small ward, and we all enjoy having a responsibility......just remind me I said that, after I get my new calling...LOL!

Anyway........I'd started to make a little set of Christmas cards to give to my ickle people, and will carry on with them, of course, so I thought I'd show you one, today............they are all decoupaged, and very simple..............

In keeping with my decision not to buy any new Christmas supplies, everything is from my stash....told ya I still had loads left...ha!

I'd actually made up the layers rainy afternoon, last Autumn.....but didn't use 'em........ seem to remember that I'd bought a handful of these decoupage sheets, but can't remember the company, so help me out if you recognise them........
Just layered the image onto a scrap piece of red fingers were itching to splodge my glittery schtuff onto that red nose, but then decided to leave him in peace......ha!

I have a boxful of die-cut snowflakes, waitin' for a blizzard, so I fished one out.....inked in blue......splodged Mod Podge on it.....added a rolled Christmas's really just an ordinary red rose, but callin' it a Christmas rose sounds so nice, and I made it, so can call it what I like....ha!  Gave me an excuse to use red gingham ribbon, too.....looooove gingham!

Here's the layers..............done!

Only a few dozen more to!

Glad to see ya, today.........even if ya do like purple!
