Christmas Card Using Art By Miran Eiwen and Cricut Artistry Cartridge

Hello friends.  I hope everyone is having nice fall weather; in US.  We actually had a little rain yesterday.  I managed to create a card with great difficulty; due to the pain in my wrists and hands.  The deadline for this card is Nov. 5th. Creating helps take my mind off of my pain; if I can manage to do it.  Luckily, it doesn't take much typing for this blog post.  I participate in Art By Miran Progressive Challenges on the Facebook page.  You can join anytime by requesting it; and once you are added; you can participate also.  Her digis on one of my favorite.  You get a free one to create with about twice a month; I think.  

I know many of you are anxiously waiting for the prize drawings for my blog celebration ; and I promise to continue working on them until they are done. I haven't felt good and having difficulty typing.  I have to type up all the extra people that emailed me and commented that don't have blogs; before I can do the drawings.  It may take me a week to get them done.  I have to draw for and notify over 25 prize winners.  It will take time. Thanks for understanding.

I love this new CTMH White Pines Paper Pack.  I received this image free last month; so it has taken me some time to figure out what to do with it.  LOL!  I always have that dilemma. I hope you enjoy it.
