Water Lilies

This week's Challenge at
So I chose Claude Monet's lovely
Water Lilies
It's so beautiful.
I felt like I was tearing a page out of a book,
something I was NEVER allowed to do as a child
(and still won't!)
But I added some treasures by Cajoline, and a border by Berna Datema:
and this is what I got!
(You never know, they could have been hiding when he painted it)

Thanks for coming by.
I always like to have a cuppa with you.

Looking for a Reindeer

they lost a reindeer.
I know, it's hard to believe that
you could lose something as big
as a reindeer.
But they did.
Well, on second thought, reindeers aren't that big.
At least not compared to the moose in my front yard this year...

 1.  He is looking in my window...
Oh oh, now he is looking at me.
Back away slowly...
I'll just hide behind this sign. 
Mamma gets sick of waiting for the boy to catch up.
Cool, eh?
(yes, I am Canadian)

At any rate, it just so happens that
I found the missing reindeer.
Turns out he was in Canada all the time.

I also was playing around with some things this morning and made this....

Thanks for stopping by, and remember,
if you ever lose your reindeer,
just call me!

 I went out in the truck

December Challenge at Gecko Galz

Can you believe it?
It's December already.

Are you as crazy-busy as I am?

I know the answer to that. lol

Gecko Galz has a new challenge for our new month, 
and it's just the theme to take you away from it all, for a nice break
So you can retreat to your secret special crafting space.
and make something dreamy,
and have a cuppa, while the tree decorates itself 
and the presents wrap themselves.
Just for a little while.
It will work!
Just try it!
Here is what I made to help get your creative juices flowing:
All of the images I have used can be found at our
