Crafty Secrets Splitcoast Stampers Challenge

Hi friends!  WOW!  It seems like the week has passed so quickly and deadlines are creeping up quickly.  A bit of an update for all you beautiful bloggers who have asked about our progress.  I have the best hubby’s skid loader was in the big barn when it collapsed, so we’d been unable to start major clean up.  BUT..he got it out from under the barn and it has some damage but not major.  So we’ve been cleaning up down trees and grain bins.  Thanks again for all your well wishes and prayers Smile
Over at Splitcoast Stampers, Dar’s challenge is Christmas in July!  We’ve been having some pretty warm days here in Iowa with temps today reaching 92 and it’s nice to think of a much cooler season!
I used the “Creating with Vintage Patterns” CD by Crafty Secrets.  I just love the papers on this CD!  The sweet Santa and Postcard image are also Crafty Secrets.  Be sure to check in tomorrow because I’m going to be giving away this CD and some new Mini Vintage Creative Scraps!  Woo-Hoo!

I'm so happy you are able to start the clean up. It must be frustrating not to be able to do much when you have all that work to do! Love the Santa card, no idea how you found time to make it! Take care sweets.
