Where do I begin to explain my life of crime. In my defense, the baseball cap (pitiful as it is) is red. There I rest my case. The snowmen all have red top hats too....just in case you didn't notice. I have learned to cheat on all of my Teapot challenges in some way. Our dad and uncle were Denver policemen and I am sure happy they did not live to see me in my 60's. I was honest, law and challenge biding before I turned 60 and it has been all down hill since. What will I be like in my 70's!!! Oh the thought. I need some intervention from my 42,000 Teapot sisters. I also need help with makeup. I have noticed that I do not do cheeks (on the face) very well either. I bet Joyce will roll her eyes when she sees this red hat!!!
hugs to all of my sisters!!!

What better way to come to the party than with a pair of skates and a woolen scarf! This is a sensible outfit to wear in this frigid air! Some of those redhatters in their fancy clothes may wish they had worn warmer clothes! Great card you created!

Not only is your little bird cute and spiffy with his red ballcap, but talented as well since he seems to be ice skating without a problem! His little scarf makes him very GQ!! The DP and snowflakes are all very pretty! The card is darling and made me smile!!

Oh my Sis, I think you have finally gone off the deep end! hehe At least you truly made one darling card before your plunge!......again hehe. I love this ice skating birdie with red hat. What a hoot! Are your snowmen from a punch? They are way cool too. Your choice of dp is perfect. Nice job on the faux stitching, it looks very real. Just a little reminder for you, you are not almost 70! If you were, that would make me to be in my 60's! Which I am not! ....close, but not. Anyway, LOVE your card! Luv you too even if you are losing it! hehe TFS :0)

Aw Connie, this is too, too cute! Fun image, great colors and DP, and I love your snowflake and snowman punches! LOVE your story too... it's good to know I'm not the only former law-abiding before I turned 60 stamper out there.

Well look at you go, girl! So glad to see you back in the gallery. Thanks so much for your card. I finished all my Christmas cards in November since I knew I would be taking December off, but I just never got around to sending them. I got half addressed with good intentions and then things just all of a sudden caught up to me so I was forced to swoop all the envelopes and cards into a pile and into a bag. The bag is still in the closet.
I love your little guy. Knowing that you've admitted to be a cheat, a law breaker and that you're watching marathons of Dog the bounty hunter makes me jump for joy. Do you much better at cheating than I ever imagined. Keep up with the cheating; I think you're getting the hang of it. Cheating seems to suit your style just fine.
