The Greeting Farm- FFF Challenge -Make it Sparkle

Hi guys,

     Can you believe that Thanksgiving for the States is this week?  That means only 4 weeks until Christmas.  That means I really need to get my Christmas cards all finished and in the mail ASAP!
     So, with that in my head I decided this weekend to do just that.  If you follow me on InstaGram or on my YouTube channel you know that is what I was doing on both Friday and Saturday.  Well, what no one knows is the fact that I got up this  morning to great disbelief!!!  Boy did I ever!!!
     You see, when I headed to bed Saturday night I had cleaned my desk and stacked up all the cards I had completed on the corner of my desk with the idea that I would get up early and film a YouTube video of all the cards I had completed and go over some of the ideas that I used to make each card.  Sounded like a fantastic idea to me.  It might even have worked out if I didn't have two knotty little kittens that like to play around on my desk in the early morning hours.  :O(...   
     You see those knotty little kittens had gotten on my desk at some point and somehow they managed to spill my big bottle of Various ink refill for my Copic markers all over my cards!  Not just one card, but all over five of them and a brand new 6x6 paper pad that I had yet to use.  It was new to me as I had bought it off of Peachy Cheap in the fall with the anticipation of using it Sunday to make a few more cards.
      I don't know how they managed to get the lid off of the bottle, it must have just hit the desk the perfect way to jar if off.  It then seeped into all the cards, (You can just imagine what those cards looked like at this point.)   I tell you I felt like it was a massacre.  The only difference was that  my unsuspecting cards had become the untimely victims of this crime scene.    
      So with that very long explanation let me get to the one card I did manage to make after all the carnage.  I really love how it turned out and unfortunately it was all I had left in me to make. I had already made a similar card out of the very last of a blue and gray 6x6 pad that I had, so it was very upsetting to remake this card. I loved the idea of the card, so I did redo it and I do like how this one turned out, but I don't even have one picture of any of the other cards to share.
     I do want to enter this in The Greeting Farm-FFF Challenge for this week-Make it Sparkle

Ok,  I will quite complaining and wish you all the best.  I hope you have a fantastic start to your week. Talk at you later.
Hugs Lisa G
