Noel and some changes

Before I share my card, I just want to let you know that if you have any questions for me, please use the chat box on my left sidebar. I received a few questions recently, but I was not able to send my response because the sender either didn't provide an email address; or the sender has a complicated spam filter that made my response undeliverable. I was asked to do a 2-3 step verification that included my going to an unknown link. For my own safety, I didn't proceed. From now on, if you have questions, please post in on the chat box. This will also benefit others who might have the same questions. Often emails get lost in my inbox as well and my own spam filter may tag your emails as spam, thus preventing me from seeing it in the first place. Thank you!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was busy that started with my daughter's piano recital. She was nervous, but did very well. I'm a proud mama :).

My card today was for Card Patterns sketch last week. This is a bittersweet moment for me as this is my last card as a member of the Card Patterns DT. In order to simplify my life, I have decided to step down from the CP team, starting the beginning of the year. I have loved my time with Michelle and Tracy and will miss working with these two talented ladies, as well as the many other wonderful ladies who have been part of the DT the last 2 years I was part of it. I won't be a stranger as I will continue to follow the sketch there, just not in an official capacity.

I used Layers of Color's Beautiful Lace and Christmas Verses sets for this one. The vintage girl image is from The Graphics Fairy. I'm entering this to her Brag Monday feature. The papers are Webster's Pages. The bling is Want2Scrap. The lace was cut with Spellbinders dies.

I also help host a Women's Christmas party for our church yesterday. It's an annual event that many ladies look forward to every December. It's our way to reach out to women in our community and is very well received every year. God truly blessed our time.
Here are some of the wonderful ladies with whom I get to share this experience.
Have a great week, friends!

  2. Nina what a beautiful post - both for your card and for the lovely time spent with the ladies. I am sure you'll be missed at CP, you continue to wow us with your work no matter who you are designing for! Or shall I say 'Who' you are designing for. ;) Hugs and happy Monday!

  3. What a gorgeous card, Nina! Love the graphic, but it's your creation that brings her to life! Saw your DD's piano recital on FB, how much fun! The church party looks like it was fun, and successful - God is so good!!! Your shoes at CP will be tough to fill, but oh my, what an honor to get that spot!!! Have a great week my friend.
