Red, White, Blue OCC Challenge...

I enjoy subscribing to other talented artists' blogs, and a particular favorite of mine is Sandy Hulsart's "Creative Moments with Sandy" and "Scenes by Sandy". This week she is a Guest Designer for "Our Creative Corner", another fabulous blog and they are having their weekly challenge focusing on the colors of Red, White and Blue.

This is my submission entry for their challenge, and I encourage you to submit your own cards using Red, White & Blue for a chance to win free stamps! That's always FUN!

My sister is coming to visit for over a week, and I'm so excited. So, of course, I'm trying my best to "straighten" my craft room, which is a feat in itself! We're going to drive down to Virginia to surprise my Mom this weekend!

As I rummage around and try to make some kind of dent in my creative mess, maybe I'll take a break and stamp some cards with stamps I purchased from the new Hobby Lobby that just opened in our area! More exciting news, the manager has asked me to teach at the store, and I'm also making preparations for my FIRST jewelry party!

What do you think of my Snowflake necklace and matching earrings? My glass lampwork beads are the focus of this pretty necklace as well as a Crystal Silver Snowflake by Swarovski. (Click on the picture and it should show a larger size.)

Stay tuned for more cards and news!
