thank you for explaining the Challenge 'rules' (for want of a better word).
In the past I have been used to uploading finished work for Challenges on other websites where comments only were passed as it was assumed one wouldn't alter ones work anyway As I post my work only here on AD c/c's haven't been invited purely out of habit....... not out of indifference to other members opinions/advice.
feel free to make constructive c/c...no digital alterations please

Fred, you are a riot! The Alpa-Bet people (how funny) and I see that these two are X & Y. You gave me a good laugh. They sure are cute.
What wonderful textures and colors on those golden walls. What a fun adventure for Bennie and Ruthie. I'm glad that you're keeping that imagination well oiled and in good working order!
Sam/Sammy C & C Welcome
The weather conditions shown on the news in so many areas of the states and Canada are simply terrible. Slippery roads, power outages, etc. are making life miserable for so many people. We saw the blizzard in Philadelphia and Pittsburgh while watching football today. I'm worried about many of you. Do stay safe and warm. Keep us posted as to how you are doing.
I'm going to try to call Marsha a little later today. If I get her, I'll let you know how she's doing.
I still don't have a good card making program and struggled big time to make cards but finally have some that are very, very simple. We must get them in the mail soon since two are going to Canada and one to Germany.
Hi to All, my finger is still sore from the small cut, but the god news is I am starting feeling better. As for the envoloples I have decide to make my own so they may or may not look pretty never made one before but it doesn't look like it should be hard. It was a good lesson for me. I should start planning Christmas in July. I just don't seems to get on top of it anymore. I can hardly wait for re-tirement which is coming in the new year June or July.
Thew weather here is cold and with a touch of snow we aren't that bad off as out west. I live in the banana belt of Canada even so today I just don't seem to get warm. Take care and stay warm, Joyce
All C & C's always welcome
Jen C & C's always welcome
Fred, great new room of gold. Love X and Y's eyes.
Sam, I downloaded a free card program from Avery Cards. They sell the blank cards so have a program to use with their cards. If you don't have their cards, a lot of the options give dimensions so you can pick one that is the same as the card you are making. That might help. Our weather is fine, a little frosty and a light snow but we have missed the severe weather. Hope everyone else is safe and managing okay.
Joyce, I'm jealous of your pending retirement. I think you will really enjoy having the extra time to do your art.
I think I need to manage my time better just don't seem to get as much done anymore. Decorating mostly done now just need to put things away. It seems to take a lot of time. I am always more excited to set up a new decoration so tried to get into the spirit and purchased one of Marsha's wooden Santa's and am enjoying him. Also wondering about Marsha, maybe we will hear something soon.
Bonnie C & C most welcome / appreciated
Jen thank you for the update. I'm sure all or thoughts have been with Marsha.
C&Cs always welcome
Didn't know about Marsha's sad news about her pet dog until this morning. I do hope she is coping..I send her my best wishes.
Jen, so sorry to hear the sad news about Marsha's little dog. Thank you for letting us know.
Marsha I'm so sorry to hear about your dog. Sending positive thoughts your way.
C&C's are welcome.

Fred, I love the rock crystal walls of this case and the expressiveness of the bears, as well as the cleverness of the indigenous beings ...
Jen, thank you for letting us know about Marsha and her tiny pet. My heart is so sad for her.
Comments and critiques are welcomed and appreciated.
