ALOHA!  Please accept my wishes for a Happy New Year even if they may be a bit late.  It has been quite a while since I have posted anything on here.  Well, life took some unexpected turns as it sometimes does.  I woke up Christmas morning to my Pop being violently sick.  Horrid flu!  All I did most of the day was keep him cleaned up.  I washed 3 loads of laundry and washed the floor 4 times along with the carpet twice.  Then the next day I came down with it, what a mess it was!  We just celebrated Christmas dinner on the 6th of January!  There were still unopened gifts and our full stockings hanging over the fireplace!  I sure hope I have seen the last of that nasty bug!  On top of all of this, my daughter and her husband arrived Christmas day!  Thankfully they were staying in a lovely condo near by and avoided our bug.  BUT, now they have it on their return to Oregon.  YUCK!

ANYHOW, it is time again for a new challenge at CC&CC.  Our generous sponsor this challenge is Robyn's Fetish, and our theme is "For The Birds".  Use a feathered friend on your card!  My image is called Sailing, Sailing.  I printed out the word "onward" on the sail with my computer, colored the image with my Copic's, added the ship's wheel cut with my NEW Silhouette Cameo (my Christmas present from my Pop!), and the button and mini sand dollar.

 I am sending this card to my daughter and her sweet husband as a thank you for my Christmas presents.  They treated me royally!  The word "onward" represents them bringing me out of the dark ages of my old cell phone and into the new world of technology ~ they got me a new iPhone!  What an amazing gadget!  I must say I do love it and it is not as hard to use as I thought it would be.

So there you have it.  Another great challenge at CC&CC.  OH, and I almost forgot, we are looking for new DT members.  I am happy to be staying on for another term, my 3rd one!  So if you are interested be sure to drop by and apply!  See you soon, thanx for dropping by!
