That's our new challenge at The Squirrel and The Fox and we hope you'll join us. Congrats to our Winner and Top 3 of our Christmas or Hanukkah challenge!
It's finally here, my last DT post for The Squirrel and The Fox of 2013. What a year this has been for me and my family. Frankly, I'm glad it's over and I'm looking forward to a happier year in 2014. I relished creating with this image, Ocean Paradise, by our current sponsor **Sweet and Sassy Stamps**. Watching the sun set over water, whether it's at a beach or the lake I live by, is a favorite pastime for me. I also love watching the moon dance on the water. :-)
I created my sunset hues with Distress Inks by Ranger-squeezed lemonade, dried marigold, wild honey and festive berries. I brought the ink downward to reflect the colors of the sunset on the water and the rest of the image was colored with Copic markers. A wonderful sentiment - Pearls of Wisdom - by My Favorite Things sets the tone for this peaceful card. My inspiration was the crystal water of the Caribbean and the gorgeous beaches I've been lucky enough to visit there. I hear them calling my name...
Prize is winner's choice of 4 free digi's!

I want to take a moment and thank the wonderful ladies on our design team for another great year. It seems this year has been a rough one for a lot of us and having the support of friends helps make the difficult times a little easier. Thank You!!
Also, a big thank you to everyone who has read my blog or left a comment. It means a lot to me and I haven't properly thanked you this year. I've been remiss to visit your blogs in a timely manner and so many other things were pushed back due to what was happening in my life at the time. I do hope you'll forgive me and I promise to be more prompt in 2014 when visiting/commenting. You inspire me so much and I cherish the friendships I've made along my crafty way! I've also missed my first two blogaversary's, can you believe it? That means you guys are due for a blow-out candy this year, maybe even two so be on the lookout. ;)
Have a very Happy New Year's and may God Bless You in 2014!
