Creatalicious #102 - Wintertime Wishes

Hello my friends,  Wow! It's been a month since I last posted. I wanted to get something done in the middle of the month, but then it was the 21st and my birthday!  Happy birthday to me - I got sick - food poisoning or a really hateful stomach bug. Had me laid up pretty well until Thursday. I don't ever want to go through that again. I got severely dehydrated and found it hard to be out of bed for very long at one time. I was finally able to get back to work on Thursday, but even today I'm still feeling the fatigue from it all.

Our theme for this challenge is Anything Goes - With the Optional Twist - Anything But a Card. Unfortunately, since I was sick, I neglected to check out the twist and just made my regular card.
Materials Used:
  • Image - Polkadoodles Crafting - Frosty Penguins
  • Sentiment - Power Poppy - Cozy Cupfuls
  • Cardstock - Xpress It Blending Card; Stampin Up Mossy Meadow
  • Designer Paper - My Mind's Eye - Cozy Christmas

I hope you'll hop on over to Creatalicious Challenge and join in the fun. You could be the random winner or picked as one of the Top 3.  Good luck.


  1. What a beautiful card Maggie - you do such a good job of colouring your images, and this is a gorgeous one.
    Glad to hear you are on the mend - what a horrible experience :-(

  2. I'm glad you're feeling better. Nice card Maggie and Happy belated birthday

  3. I had the same bug all the way over here in Oregon. My first time with all that upchucking and I'm not anxious to do it again. Felt like I'd been run over by a truck and the fatigue held on for days. It's been a week and I'm just now getting my strength back. So I feel for you. Heck of a thing so close to your birthday! Anyway, it's so good to see you stamping again, especially with such a cutie pie image! You're so good with the Liquid Applique. Mine always comes out looking like popcorn. Love your coloring. It's always a treat to see. Take care!

  4. Oh, Maggie, so sorry you are still down from the food poisoning. But I love your card, especially her hat! :)

  5. Beautifully colored and love your DP. Glad you are back on your feet- so sorry that happened to you and on your b-day too!!!

  6. No twist need since the card is so precious and pretty! Love it.
    Glad you are feeling better too now.

  7. Oh so pretty!! What a darling image, love how she's holding the penguins. I am so sorry you were sick and for that long!! I hope you are feeling much better now!

  8. Fabulous card, Maggie! I'm sorry you've been under the weather not feeling so good but hope you're better in time for your trip !!

  9. Ooooh, she is bundled up in terrific colors! The North wind blew in here today & she would be dressed perfectly!
