Good Morning! I almost never do alternate fold cards for some reason, but I am really glad that I decided to play along with the Riley and Company challenge this week. The challenge was to make a Center Step card and a link to this tutorial was provided. It wasn't that difficult and I love the way that it looks. I used Riley and the Christmas Tree image for my card, Basic Gray paper, buttons from American Crafts and the sentiment is from a dollar set I have had for a while.
Before I got my laptop, it was much more difficult to make anything that I had to follow multiple step directions. The computer is upstairs and the craft room is downstairs so I would try and balance my Scor-Pal on my lap at the computer desk which didn't really work all that well. Having the laptop, I can put it on my craft desk and it makes everything so much easier.
Samantha hung out with me on Saturday morning while her sister was at swim practice and she helped me get my tree up. She has helped me with this for the past couple of years now, but this year I had found a bin of ornaments that she had never seen before so she had fun ooohing and aahhing over all the things that were new to her. My tree is done in Elvis ornaments and angel ornaments. Several of the Elvis ones play music, but every time she walks by the tree she presses the button on the one that plays "Viva Las Vegas".
I haven't been around visiting blogs or blogging very much. I hurt my back last week and last night was the first time in about a week that I could sit at the table long enough to even color an image. I have spent as much time as possible horizontal on the couch, with pain meds and day time TV. I'm feeling better now, and am even attempting to go to work today.
