Today's SCS challenge is to use a Vera Bradley pattern as your inspiration. Vera Bradley bags are VERY popular with all the girls and women at my church, but I have not been "blessed" with owning one....somehow the cost offsets the desire! But I admire them and love the paisley patterns she offers! So I used this pattern, Frankly Scarlet, as my inspiration for my little chickadee Christmas card:
Both the DP and image are from Crafty Secrets; sentiment is from Flourishes. The DP has been embossed with a CB folder (the name escapes me!) and my image was lightly watercolored. I am not sure how "clean & simple" this is, but it didn't take me very long!
My computer's wireless router bit the dust yesterday--at least I am hoping that's what it is, since everything else works fine, so I am running up & down the stairs to the basement to use DH's!! If anything, I should be in better shape (!!!) by the time I get my computer guy to check it out! Plus his is MUCH faster than mine! What a difference...hmmm, maybe it IS my computer. Just a shout out also to all my stamp club girls who met yesterday for a little party/get-together at my home. No, of course I didn't take pictures.....too busy feeding my face! But I will show you a cute little goodie one of my clever stampers gave me:
I know this is not a very good picture, but it is a GIANT chocolate bar, made into a snowman, complete with a black knit cap made from a pair of gloves! I NEED those gloves! Isn't he cute? She is so clever! Thanks, MaryAnne!
And here is a quick peek at the gift-wrapped packages they received:
I wheeled the brown paper packaging that comes in my SU boxes with Chocolate Chip ink and various wheels, then wrapped them in the wide striped ribbon. Oops, forgot to show you the tags:

Hey, the sun is finally shining here in SE PA, so I think I'll hang some laundry on the line! Thanks for visiting today!
