Speedy Fox & Friends #213 - Magic Masking


HAPPY SATURDAY!  Dancing a jig and smiling....well not really going to be dancing for a few days but I am on the inside!  We made it to the end of another school year.  Is there anything quite so sweet as that first day of summer break?

Well, I have a super quick post for you today because although I had the card created and photographed I didn't have the inside or the blog written before I went to the foot Dr. to see about a toe or two!

A bit of drama that I will spare you from but I am now supposed to have my foot elevated the rest of the day so it is real quick!!!!

Our challenge for Speedy Fox & Friends is so easy yet makes a great background.  We are "Magic Masking" with masking tape this week!  I was hoping to make another card as well but ........well....a toe got in the way!  

It's been awhile since you have seen a Christmas card from me so I decided it was a perfect time to create one.  I am rather  behind my Christmas card goal with this being only #8.

I really like the fonts on the sentiments that come with the "Wise Men" set.

I hope you will head on over to Speedy Fox & Friends Challenge for some lovely DT inspiration and details on joining in the challenge!

A quick run down of supplies and I am off!  :)

  7. Oh, Angie, I wish I could get to Christmas cards! I LOVE this one and the colors and how you achieved the background! And this image is wonderful, along with the beautiful font for the sentiment inside! Yes, they sure travelled afar! Oh, I'm so sorry about your foot - keep it elevated and off it!! Tender hugs, sweet friend!
