Hi everyone. I know I've been gone along time. I sort of lose the vision in my right eye. But I've had laser surgery and can now see better than ever. Still got to get the left eye done. I want to get it done before I lose vision in that one too. I know my challenge of a card a day is beat, but I can still go for 365 card for 2012.
Today I'm playing along with the Friday Mashup. What A great challenge this is. Rita is mashing up ghosting with a sketch. I love ghosting.

My picture isn't the best. The snow is so bright it hurts my eye. So bare with me. My colors are Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Marina Mist. I used the wood grain back ground stamp for my ghosting and then inked it with Crumb Cake. My images are from The Angel Company and are inked in Early Espresso. The buttons were punched out using the Martha Steward button punch and I used the Scallop edge border from Stampin up. My Sentiment is also Stampin Up. It's from the Tiny Wishes set.

I hope you like my card. I don't think I'll be here everyday for A while yet. But I will be back. So do stop back.

I'd been wondering where you were Karen, it had been so long since I had seen you on here or Facebook!

This is a great card, I love the images. My MIL would go crazy for this card!

So glad you could play along with us and I hope you are seeing better soon!
