Magnolia Christmas Card

Hello All,
  I'm having a better day today than I've had in a while.  For those who don't know, I was diagnosed with Depression and Bipolar two years ago.  I've had my ups and downs but a few weeks ago I hit a big bottom and it wasn't pretty.  So, my DR upped my meds and has me off work for a few more weeks to let the meds even out.  Plus, my Thyroid is acting up again and that is not helping matters either.  But the good news is that the meds are working, they are just slow.  The other thing is my wallet is taking a big hit with being off which really sucks lol!  I am not able to afford my crafting supplies while I'm off.
  I made my first Christmas Card yesterday and thought I'd share.  I am also working on a tissue box cover for Christmas but I'm not done decorating it yet, or I'd share.  But here is the link for the directions if you guys would like to take a look.  It is super cute.  And I saw the idea first from Sharon Caudle's blog.  Sharon's tissue box cover is absolutely outstanding!
  I'd like to enter this card into the Just Magnolia Challenge for distressing.

  Well, here is the Canvas that I finished after taking a class with Jennifer McGuire.  This was the second class I've taken from her and it was great learning all the different techniques.  The word "create" is over too far.  I thought I could squeeze in one more butterfly.  We learned 22 different techniques and I could only get 18 of them on the 12 x 12 canvas.
  Well, I guess that is it for me today.  Hope all of you have a wonderful crafty day!
