Squigglefly's new Challenge~use traditional Christmas colors: Red & Green: and NEWS!!

HI! I have a new challenge to share with you today from the Squigglefly Challenge Blog! Use traditional Christmas colors~Red & Green. I also have some very exciting news to share with you!
First I will share my card for the challenge with you, I have used one of the new Squigglefly  images: Holiday Lamp Post by artist Lynne Stansbery.
 This image was perfect for me, as I was making a Thank You for the Garden Club, who made a couple Wreaths for the ladies at the AFC home I currently work for. I colored up the wreath and cut it out, and popped it up on the image, to add some dimension to it~I love how it came out!
Go on over and check out the blog and join us --if you use a Squigglefly image on your entry (and there are several freebies on the Squigglefly site), you have the chance to win a free image!

Now for my exciting news-I will be leaving the AFC home i have been working at, I will truly miss some of the ladies there, but I will still get to go see them, as I will be stopping by ever now and again, to do some cards and crafts with them!
 But the big news is: I am opening back up my daycare!! It will allow me to be home for my Emily, and spend much more time with my family than the midnight shift at the AFC home!! My daughter Chelsie (who just had the Halloween baby: Parker) will be doing the daycare with me, so I will also get to see her and my grandson nearly every day too! I am so EXCITED! (it should also give me more time in the evening to visit all your lovely blogs and do a bit more crafting than I have got to do in the last 6 months as well!) Whoohoo!!
Thanks for stopping by today,
Rhonda

Hello Rhonda, how are you. I am so excited about your new venture, and also having time to spend with your family too.
Your card is delightful, beautiful image and lovely design.
By the way, your grandchild born on Halloween, was also born on my birthday, how special is that.
Happy crafting.
With lots of love to you all.

Rhonda I love how this card turned out too. The time you took to cut out the wreath and pop it up was so worth it because it looks incredible. I am also very happy for you to be opening up your daycare again. How nice it will be to be able to see your grandson grow up, and I know Emily will be happy to have her mommy back home more often!

Congratulations on your change of jobs. You and your daughter will have so much fun running the daycare together.

Love this card. Perfect for the garden club. The wreath is gorgeous hanging from the lamp. Great photo corner accents too.
