Wednesday Blog Hop -- January 4, 2017

Happy New Year everyone!!   Do you believe it is already 2017?  The years go too fast.

Well, I guess I did not make it back here last week.  I was some kind of sick.  My hubby and I both caught colds while we were in Germany.  We continued on, and on.  We just bundled up with layers and tried to ignore the chill, mist, dampness, and winter weather.  I guess that is why we both were still pretty sick when we got back home.  He recovered but I continued to get worse and worse until I finally went to the emergency clinic the Thursday before Christmas.  Christmas and New Years were somewhat a blur, but I am doing much better now.  The doc gave me a fistful of meds for bronchitis, major sinus infection, infection in larynx and  just plain ick!  But I am Baaaaccckkk!!!

We are challenged this week to use blues, snow theme and some sparkle.  I think we also were to try to use an embossing folder but not the falling snow folder.  Here is our inspiration piece.

And here is what I did.  I used the new watercolor pencils that you will find in our brand new Occasions catalog that starts January 4th.  That is tomorrow, or today if you are reading this on Wednesday.  I have been really excited to get started with some of my new goodies, but I have been too sick to even trudge up to my craft room until yesterday.  But this weekend I plan to play with lots of those new "toys."

I also used white embossing powder on snow dots and stars in the sky.  The stamp came from Holly Jolly Greetings in the Annual Catalog.  I also used Lovely as a Tree, which I hope won't be retired this year.  Every year I pray SU does not let that one go.  It is my favorite.   So I have blues, check;  snow, check; sparkle, check; embossing folder, check.  That should do it.

You may have come to me from Liz's blogsite and should continue on to Robbie's blogsite.  Enjoy our winter blog hop this week.  See you next week.  Fingers crossed all that sick is GONE and won't come back!!

Crafty Hugs,
