I'm Late

Good Evening

Did you think I’d fallen off the face of the earth? I’m still here, just been beavering away in the Closet working on craft fair items. I have been by to visit some of your lovely blogs from time to time but have sadly neglected my own.

I'm a little late but not to late for Sandra's Rudolph Day Challenge.  Why not join the fun,  you have until Tuesday evening and beside adding a C card to your stash (you know you'll need them sooner then you think) there is a lovely prize to be won.
I’ve used Hero Arts Clings ‘Wreath’ stamp, Recollections’ Joy stamp, a few rhinestones and a bit of gold cord from the scraps jar on craft layered on to chcolate and on a dark green base.
The fires are still ragging in Eastern WA. Although there are approximately 1,800 homes under mandatory evacuation, thanks to our fabulous firefighters no homes have been lost in well over a month.  We have been blessed with some gentle breezes, enough to upgrade our air quality from Unhealthy to Poor. It still seems unhealthy to me, it is really bothering Jim and even I have felt it in my lungs. The air quality for those closer to the fires is still Hazardous. Unbelievably, NASA satellites are picking up the smoke over Newfoundland.  I've heard Colorado has had some snow in the very high elevations, fingers crossed and prayers being said we will have an early snow fall in the Cascades. 

Hope you all have a magnificent weekend.  I'll be back to share some of my craft fair makes in the next day or two.




  1. Bernie, this is a fantastic card. I have this stamp, and I must CASE what you did here. Your rhinestones & gold cord just make the image pop. Really pretty. Hope the air continues to improve. I hope both of you have 'puffers' if you need to use them..especially Jim. Hugs

  2. Wow Bernie, this is fabulous! Love the way the wreath is off the page, tres chic! A super card.

    Hoping the snows arrive early for you and Jim.

    Love and hugs, Di xx

  3. Marvellous card Bernie. Love those stamps. Hope you get some snow and that the air quality improves for you very soon.

  4. OOOH Bernie . . . your stamped card is just lovely and the little embellishments enhance it beautifully.
