I'm still alive!

Helloooo, I'm back! It's been a while since my last post and I have a lot to catch up on so please bear with me. I still have a slight lingering cough but I've been staying busy getting ready for the holidays and taking care of Greg after his surgery last week. I finally got my Christmas cards done and here's a few pictures of them.
The felt snowflake is from Hobby Lobby and the adorable penguin from Michael's. I added a little bit of stickles to give it some bling.

The scroll accent was cut with the Cricut and I inked it a bit. The floral accent is a Martha punch and I inked that for a bit of texture.

I also tried my hand at Valerie's project posted on Fiskar's website. I figured it would make a great gift. Well, to make a long story short, I had a bit of a hard time cutting the fleece to size and trying to keep the two pieces of fleece together while cutting the strips, but I was pleased with the results anyway. It only took me a couple of hours to finish. I have absolutely no sewing experience and I'm sure there are tricks to making this project a lot easier. However, I think I could make this project again and maybe faster. So what do you think?

Finally, I just wanted to give dog lovers a tip. I love, love, love Royal Treatment Products for dogs. Here is a picture of my Xena just after a bath. This stuff smells wonderful and is great for your dog's skin and coat. It makes Xena's coat so soft and shiny. People are always asking me how I get her coat so soft. I'm so glad I discovered this line when Xena was just a pup. Well, that's all I have for today. Drop me a line if you would like any more information on anything I posted. Just in case I don't get a chance to post anything else until after the holidays. I hope everyone has a peaceful and cozy holiday.
