Rockin' Around.....

Good morning! I think we may have all dodged my hubby's swine flu germs as no one is sick yet! I think we may be out of the woods as he has been fever free for 4 days and no one feels yucky yet!!
Anyways after our busy morning I got to work on a card! I made this card following the sketch from Friday Sketchers and have created a baby's first Christmas card for the challenge at A Spoonful of Sugar! I thought this adorable image from Belles and Whistles, Rockin Around, fit the bill perfectly!
I also added a ton of glitter to everything thinking it was a challenge somewhere and found out that it was but for last week!! haha.
EDITED to add: Found out it was the Basic Grey Challenge and it is for 2 weeks so I am safe!! (Thanks Tara!)
I have used distress ink on some of the egdes and covered a little wood star and added bells to it! I am all out of the bells and think I have to run back and get some more! I think they are adorable and don't really stick out that much for mailing! The sentiment is from Melissa Frances and the ribbon is some I bought from Etsy and don't remember!

Paper: Basic Grey
Inks: Distress inks and twinkling h20's
Accessories: brads ~ Queen and Co. and stickles all around my image


Well thanks so much for stopping by!! I want to remind you all about the Belles and WHistles blog hop starting tomorrow! We will be previewing the Christmas Collection II stamps and they are so adorable!!!! You will love them all I promise!!! They will only be available for a limited time though as Christmas is right around the corner!!
Have a lovely day!!!

Oh thanks for the sweet comment, Kathy! It's funny I have quite an eclectic taste in music now and I think having a 10 year old pre-teen as really influence my taste in music...I actually like Miley Cyrus,lol!!! Believe it or not I was a heavy metal/rocker chic in high school and I still like to rock out especially when I clean the house. I put my Great hits Def Leopard CD on, lol! It would be a blast to stamp together, maybe someday, hun...ya just never know!
