This week on Mod Squad Challenge Blog we were asked to Make a Christmas card with a twist. The twist was to do veggie stamping. I couldn't quite come up with an idea I liked until I saw a card on Pinterest. I CASED the card using a stalk of celery to stamp on my background paper. TFL

- I am retired and loving it. I have a wonderful husband of 54 years. We have 3 awesome children, 7 fabulous grandchildren and 8 incredibly precious great-grandchildren. I enjoy reading, walking, biking, card making, jewelry making, stitching and quilling. My winters in Minnesota are spent mostly indoors while in the summer my husband and I spend quality time on our Harley enjoying the beautiful scenery in our area. I hate to cook, love anything sweet and have mixed feelings about exercising.

There are really only two things I don’t like to do in card making; use an inked stamp and make a tag. Yesterday's challenge at Mod Squad Challenge Blog http://modsquadchallenge.blogspot.com/
was to make a card with a tag on it. Ick……but then again aren’t challenges meant to challenge. So I make a tag, a very nice tag as a matter of fact. Then I stamp on it….so far so good. Then I get a big spot of yellow ink on the side. Not good! I must have had ink on my hand. The general rule in card making is when you goof up cover it up. So I added a bow and I’m thinking, hey, this isn’t so bad, I can finish it and submit it. Then I took a picture because I see things more clearly on a picture and low & behold I have the stem way off. Ugg……back to the drawing board…... (hmmmm wonder if I can add a second stem some way). Nope, I tried but it made it worse. Sooo...here is my second attempt at a card with a tag. TFL
