a beaded WOWWW

When you visit Mary over at CARDZ TV, you get tutorial videos, challenges, prizes! She has linked up with Theresa from The Scrapbooking Queen for her challenge over at Paper Playtime:
Say it with Sentiments #63 and this month anything goes! And what can I say? I was am in a beading mood, recently I purchased metallic floss, seed beads, seed bead floss and a beading needle from a small cross stitch store in Dillsboro, NC.

I just love my goodies and look at that white trim! I can't wait to find a project to use that on! And I'm so happy I finally found a beading needle, you don't know how many beads I broke on my last project trying to force those puppies over the needle! lol
This is my card I came up with. I used the Winter Wonderland paper from Reminisce. I love, love the snowflakes on this paper and used them to sew and bead like a stencil. Oh and of course I added stickles to it too...hard for me not to use stickles...and I am sure there is a Freudian thing concerning glitter...lol

Now the one thing I have learned about metallic floss...it's a little stiffer and you do need to be careful pulling it through your paper. And the beading needle is sooooooo thin, think about using a strand of dental floss as a needle, that pliable too!

I also used my stamp from Our Daily Bread Designs, Mini Tags 1. I really need to keep up my stash of get well cards being that I am a Cricut Fairy so I thought this would be an awesome card to send to someone who was not feeling so good!
...and I hope that Julia from Stamping Ground doesn't notice that I'm taking a picture of my desk a day early ( she might not as she is currently in a baking mode and is busy in the kitchen! ) but I had my camera out and went ahead and did my "Whats on Your Work desk" picture. It's at night so the picture of my area looks a lot darker than it really is.  Play along with WOWWW, it's fun to take a peek around the world at other crafters mess desks!

                                                                                                                                                                                                   
Now I'm off to have a cup of hot chocolate ( with a smidgen of marshmallows ) and leave you with this thought...When you stop believing in Santa Claus is when you start getting clothes for Christmas!

and yes, I am still trying to rally from Blogger removing my other blog: as they thought I was spamming because I was doing a blog hop, so beware about visiting too many blogs at one time!! Any way, if your feeling generous I sure would love to build up my followers base again, I was almost up to 200 followers! Now starting over at ground zero...:(
Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Lovely card and good luck with the new blog

Your desk still looks extremely busy Sandee, despite being so close to Christmas, so I hope you manage to get everything finished in time for the big day.

I love beading on cards too and think you’ve done a great job with those snowflakes, very pretty1

Wishing you a very Happy Christmas.

Beautiful beaded card. Several years back I did beading and you are absolutely right about the needles. Most of mine had a permanent bend to them!

You've been right ahead of me in commenting on some blogs so I thought I'd check out your site. Since I'm at the bottom (#82) I start at the bottom and work my way up.

Merry Christmas!!!

Clare H said...

wow they deleted your old blog? that sucks, if they had spent 30 seconds and looked at it they would have seen your not a spammer! Did you get in touch with them? they should have a backup of it.

I made a youtube of my glittery tags and added it to my WoYWW post if you fancy seeing the end result. Fabulous beading work on your card, love it!

Lunch Lady Jan said...

Gorgeous beaded card - I would buy that!! That's a blow about your old blog :( Not much you can do, just pick yourself up and start all over again. Hang on, that's a song, isn't it...sorry..
Anyhow, hope you have a fab Christmas!
Hugs, LLJ #43 xx

What!!? You mean to say they can't get it back for you! That is awful. Jumping straight on board to swell your numbers back up. Thanks for visiting me. Have a swell Christmas and Happy New Year to you. Almost forgot (so annoyed about your followers) to say your beaded card is fab. Hugs Mrs A & The Monkeys.

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Great beaded card! Maybe it is the angle, but your workdesk looks small, but who am I to talk? Usually I have but a small place to create in. One can do great stuff with a small space.

CRAFTY WOMBLE said...

I am thinking that you may not have enough marshmallows there gal! Merry Christmas to you and all yours x

Beautiful card, love the beading but I wouldn't have the patience! Love that cartoon too, very funny! I do love a good hot chocolate but can do without the marshmallows thank you! I like your mug too, never seen one with indents for the fingers before! Have a wonderful Christmas.

lotsa cute stuff on your blog today. Love the card and hot chocolate is a fave. ROFL at the bears texting a carol! Thanks for sharing. I am really late getting around to all the blogs this week but hey it happened before and it will probably happen again. Hope you and your family have a Happy Holiday and Merry Christmas this year!

shows you. How mlittle I know outside glue and paper - a specially thin needle for beads .- genius! Your card is beutifjul, I can only guess at the time it took and marvel at your patience. Ah, patience, just remembered why I don't do beads!! Like the look of your Tuesday desk, makes no matter when it's taken, specially as I'm so late visiting, I think the non daylight makes everything look tidier and cosy. Not too late to wish you a happy Christmas!

Hi Sandee, that is a great card! You know I was in a panic mode one day when I woke up to find my blog disappeared and I guess it was also because i had visited a lot of blogs for WOYWW! But I wrote them and it came back up within the day! Recently, I couldn't get into my blog without this warning that my blog had malware because of a link in it! Panic again! I manged to remove the link and my blog is OK again! Did you try writing blogger? A blessed Christmas to you and your family! Patsy from
