Hero Art's November Challenge

I have to say I'm really missing my blog and the time to create. Working full time again in an office setting is more challenging than I remember. Sitting in front of a computer all day just exhausts me.

I did find a little creative time on Sunday so I thought I'd share with you what I came up with. This month's challenge over on the Hero Art's flicker group is ...


So here is my Gift Card holder made from a CD holder. Love it when I can recycle something.

Here is the front of the CD case. I opened it so you could see the spine. I love how that little sentiment fit just perfectly in that little space. I used a glue pad to stamp the starry background and added some fine white glitter. For the snow on the mound I used Polar White Flower soft. The reindeer was colored with Copics.

For the inside I created a little pocket for the gift card.

And to finish it off I extended the scene over to the back.

I hope you all enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving with family and friends. We are looking forward to having all 3 of our kids together and spending time with good friends, family and good food, yum!!

Found an hour today...

and made a tag for this month's Hero Art's Challenge.

The past month has been such a whirl wind. First I participated in an amazing R.A.K. with my Hero Art's friends, then we went on an amazing vacation and upon returning I was finally getting call back's for interviews and started a new job...wheew! I was afraid I had left my creative mojo in the Philippines! Here are a few more photos from the trip and one of the pieces I tried to create using this photo as the inspiration. I was a bit frustrated with it and decided to put it aside...maybe I will give it a go another time.

The pink coral blooms yellow flowers, if you get to close the flowers disappear. I only saw a few with the flowers blooming and I just loved it. And here was my feeble not what I hoped for.

These next 4 photos are different types of anenomes.
The colors and design are just magnificent.

I think this one above looks like a crazy hat, LOL!

I'm not sure I have ever dove anywhere that had such intense colors.

As for the new job, I am working as a customer service/dispatch representative for a National Glass and Door company. The company services, repairs and replaces glass, locks, doors, windows ect for commercial clients all across the U.S., Canada and Pureto Rico. The types of accounts are businesses like Banks, Restaurants and Retail chains.

Thanks again for stopping by, I truly do appreciate your visits and sweet comments.
