My first hAnglar card & some pictures

I was so happy to get a few things in the mail today.
First of all, these beautiful papers from a challenge I won about 8 wks ago.............Took a long time go get these puppies but I have em & I love em!
Secondly, these adorable, loveable, cutsey, whootsie hAnglar & stAnglar images from my bestest gal, pal, blogger buddy boss over seas!!! What a treat!
This is my first time coloring one of these adorable lil people & it won't be the last!
I put two & two together and got this Christmas card.

Because I will be sending this to Operation Write Home, I was not allowed to use bling (glitter or rhinestones or swirls of flash) as these cards are going to our heros of war & all the bling puts their lives in danger if caught in just the right flash of the night sky! Please read more on this HERE before making a card for this cause!

Oh how I wanted to add bling, glitter & Zing! But I withheld!

Challenges for my card:

DCD Christmas Challenge- Childrens' Christmas
Flutterby Wednesdays- angel with buttons
Bah Humbug- fav medium (watercolor pencils, blending stumps & baby  oil for coloring & stitching for accenting)
Sentimental Sundays- Christmas Cards for OWH
Cowgirls Sunday Challenge- Christmas Cards for OWH
Paper Sundaes Challenge- min 3 embellies (buttons, ribbon, eyelet)
Pile it on- Cards for OWH

NOW if your still with me................
I have some pictures to share!

Here we have a few pictures of The Honorary Prairie Fairy GurlZ at our annual Marketsquare Sale table.
We got two spots this year, Trisha supplied the tables & card holders.

As you can see by the table below, sales were BOOMING.....well, not really but I had to get a shot of the Prairie Fairy herself workin the crowd! She got some more people hooked on her stuff that day!! Woo Hoo ! you go girl!

This is a picture of my son Reade. He turns 3 TODAY!!! OMG!!!
He is a 'self taught' bike rider.
What I mean is, while I sit at the table crafting, he runs in & out of the house off & on his bike.....
.....& before I knew it, he said 'mom come look'....he was riding up  & down the cement walkway to our deck! (small walkway, small deck [a one stepper] ).
So I had to take him around the neighborhood and flaunght his bike riding ability!
Dressed to the nine's my son, who found his rubber boots on a nice summer day!

This is a picture of my daughter waiting for the bus on the first day of school .
Nine going on 16 !
Into grade 4 this yr......BTW she hates it already!! Bwahhaaha!!

And this is my son playing with his sister on his first day of school .
It is a struggle to get him here every morning & he has cried every day for about 5 mins after I leave, then when I pick him up he talks non-stop of what he did & sings the songs they sang that day!
It's definitely a 'love-hate relationship' !

Thanks for taking the time to come check out my blog today.

Don't forget about my candy at the top of my blog, until Sept. 26!

Great to see all the pics Cor, I love seeing a glimpse into blog-friend's lives!
Your card is fantastic, I love these stamps and am hoping to grab a few one day, they still seem hard to come by in the UK at least.

Great pictures Cor! Good thing I ran away while the camera was out. I only like to be behind it...lmao! But let's talk about this card. Holy Moly this is my FAVOURITE! Yep, I think so to date, I love your colouring, look at the face! And the shading, whoa! The stiching is pro-seamstress and it carries on to the inside OMG! But I have to say I am seething with jealousy at this adorable Hanglar, great job!

Beautiful card, your coloring is fantastic and I love the look of the sewing. I have been seriously thinking of buying a lower brand sewing machine just to sew on cards!!! My mother would have a hissy fit if she read this for she used to make the most beautiful clothes! I love the pictures of your children! They sure grow up fast don't they! I remember when my girls were at the ages of 8-10 and they acted and looked so much older. Thank you for sharing!

Great card and awesome pics Corry, way to get right in there. For the rest of you who are too far away to attend our local festival, Corry was going around with a shaker thing getting everyone all geared up!!

Kelly said...

Now that I think of it the shaker thing could have been one of her children's toys.
