Woot Woot!

I am so excited to share some VERY BEEG (as Ed Sullivan used to say) news with you all today.
You've heard me speak of the illustrious Poobahs over at The Order of the Opus Gluei often, right?
(heads nod)
I lurves their blog.
So much fun, it really should be illegal.
I've been asked to be an honourary poobah!  Fledgling, really is a better word.
Isn't that just the
See me beside me?

Not just me, mind you, but some very talented Glueites that
I always get a whole bunch of inspiration from.

And that's not the best news.
Although that too is pretty darn cool!

For our very first challenge we are partnering with the
You HAVE TO check these ladies out.
They have come up with the brilliant idea to make one Christmas Card a week until Christmas and by then you would have, um, let's see,
takes her shoes off
52!  Christmas cards all ready to mail!

If you're a bit of a loner like me, that would last you 6 years!
Good deal!

But that's not all.

The Challenge at
is to make a card and a tag.

Not too complicated.
I did it.  So can you.
Here's my card

and here's my tag

I had this lovely pink wintery paper that I got in
Whitefish, Montana last year, by Paper's Best
A couple of Tim Holtz Stickers,
Some bird stamps from Mikey's that I embossed in silver. And that was REALLY hard to photograph.  But it's very pretty.

Ribbon from my stash and Class-o-Peel sentiments from my Christmas bucket.
Strips of silver paper that I think I may have bought in Thailand 6 years ago
no, I don't hold onto stuff, why are you asking?
and some buttons and pine branches that
arrived from some Poobahs who shall remain nameless last Christmas.
It seemed only right.

Are you still with me?

WELL, the BIGGEST news is yet to come!!

Yes, boys and girls, there are two, count en, two giveaways happening to celebrate this momentous occaision
at least it's pretty momentous to us.

Come on, join us, meet the other pooblettes, say hi,
make something and maybe win some Christmas goodies.
And best of all, you'll have a Christmas card made. 
Today is exactly six months from Christmas Eve.
Well, you would want to send out your card before then,
ESPECIALLY if the Canadian Postal strike is still on.
If it is, I am going on record that I WILL get a dogsled team
and go out and find my swaps that are lost in mail hell somewhere.
I will too so!
You just watch me!

Anyways, I really hope you'll come. You know me, I wouldn't do something if it weren't fun. 
And all of these ladies away beyond fun.  I hope you stop by and make a card with us.
and a tag.
And lots more in the coming months.
