It's been a busy holiday season as we approach the new year. My sister-in-law had surgery that then had complications and another hospital visit. I made this card to help cheer her up upon her return home. Thank goodness my mom was able to be there to help out with my lovely nieces and just the general upkeep of running a home...I know my brother and his wife were so appreciative.

One of my Christmas gifts was the My Mind's Eye All is Bright collection pack. I had actually used some of the washi tape on our family Christmas cards this year and just fell in love with the whole collection. Naturally, I had to carve out a little time to use my new supplies. This is what I came up with.
I love how well the Echo Park Paper Co. mixed with the My Mind's Eye. The holly flourish die cut was a freebie from SVGCuts and I loved pulling it all together even though it is labor intensive to cut out and then assemble it all...it's so worth it!
Lastly I finally got up the courage to do a vinyl wall sticker for our son's room. I saw this quote on a plaque while shopping one day and loved it. It took me a bit to get it cut out and up on his wall - not a hard process, just a little time consuming (but then again, that may be because I'm a total perfectionist).
The football and baseball player are actually metal sculptures from Hobby Lobby. I stumbled across those on accident and our son loves them.
As we head into 2013, I wish the best for you and yours. May you be blessed!
