Still Kicking

I know you all missed me, right? Maybe? Things have been happening around here that have made it difficult for me to post on a regular basis, but I'm really going to try to be better about it. My baby girl moved away, clear across the country *sniff*, my son and sister and mom are also moving at the end of the month (also clear across the country), and we may be moving next year, so I can't make any promises. But I will try! (Note: I didn't even feel up to cooking Thanksgiving dinner this year, for the first time in 39 years, so that gives you an idea of where my head's been.)

To that end, I am posting this card at the request of my dear friend and downline, Patty. It was CASEd from a card by Amy Whelan, but I added an embossed bird to dress it up a little. If I had made the wreath entirely green, I think I would have made the bird a Cardinal, but I didn't think a red bird would complement the colors on this card very well.

It's hard to see in the photo above, but the Lost Lagoon wreath bits are accented with Dazzling Details, giving just a touch of glimmer. It really is lovely in real life!

How are your holiday preps coming along? I'm waaaay behind, and at this rate, I'll be lucky to get my cards in the mail by New Year's Eve.
