Hello Everyone, 

It's been a long time since I posted anything on my blog.  I have been so busy since the summer that I hardly had time to do any crafting.  I did however scraplift some tags for my family and friends for Christmas. I would like to thank Cathy over at Mimi's Craft Corner for her cute idea for these tags.  I think they turned out so cute.  

Hope everyone had a a very Merry Christmas. Happy New Year to all of you. Can't believe 2014 is almost gone already.  

My tags were cut at 4.75" from the Tags, Boxes & More Cartridge.
I sponged the top of the tag with Distress Ink Faded Denim and Fire Brick Red to make it look like the hats. 
I stamped Peachy Keen Snowmen faces and colored the cheeks with Red Chalk. 
I used twine from the Twinery in Blk/White and Maricino and added Green sprigs that I punched out with the Martha Stewart Punch. Added some tiny rhinestones for some glitz on the hat.  

Thanks for looking.

Hi Everyone,

The weekend is here at last, and the weather seems to be getting warmer (thank goodness). I can't wait for summer so I thought I would make a card for summer and I'm entering this into the PKS Sketch Challenge.

My card is a White card base 4.25"x 5.50", a navy blue mat 4" x 5.25" and another white mat 3.75" x 5". I ran the white mat through the Swiss Dots folder in my Cuttlebug.  The four panels are navy blue with a yellow mat with the Swiss Dots.

I used the Peachy Keen Stamp of the Month PKSC-18 from June 2013.

I had fun making this card and thinking of all the summer fun. Thanks for all your nice comments, I enjoy reading them.

Hello Everyone,

Happy Spring, if it ever gets here. This has been some weather we are having. I can't take anymore of it. I'm really ready for Summer.

 I made this card for the Cardz TV Challenge #6 Spring.

My card is 4.25 x 5.50" white base card. The gingham green mat is 4" x 5.25" and is from Recollections, and the yellow mat is 3.75" x 5". I embossed the yellow mat with the Stampin Up Tulip Frame folder. I love this embossing folder. The cow and flower pot is from KaDoodles. This was a freebie. I don't have a Silhouette but I printed it out and cut all the pieces out. It took some time but I think it came out pretty cute. I shaded some of it with my copics. I added buttons and gem stones to the flowers. I actually like how it came out.  My sentiment is from one of the Peachy Keen SOTM club sets from 2013. I cut the banner from the Art Philosophy Cart. Also added some stickles to give it a little sparkle.

Hope you like my card and thank you for all your nice comments.

Hello My Crafty Friends,

Mary over at CardzTV is having a 3-D Challenge for Easter. Why don't you hop on over and join in the fun.
This is my take for the Challenge.

I made 15 of these Tubes with Jelly Beans for my Bowling League Ladies for Easter. Just wanted to give them a little something for Easter.

I bought these tubes in AC Moore for $1.00, great deal.  I made the bunnies (thanks to Mary) from different size ovals on my cricut. I used George and Basic Shapes and cut ovals in 2" for face, 6 ovals at 1-1/2" for feet, ears and body and 4 ovals in pattern paper at 1-1/4" for the feet pads and inside the ears, then added a purple bow to the bunnies head. The face is stamped with Peachy Keen Critter Stamp Asst. set. Love this little face.  Added chalk for the cheeks, Filled the tube w/jelly beans and added a Pink & White dotted bow. I love making these little bunnies.

I hope the ladies like them. I'm sure they will enjoy the Jelly Beans.

Thanks for stopping by.  Thanks for leaving a comment, I love reading them.  


Hello My Crafty Friends,

There is a Sketch Challenge going on over at Peachy Keen this week. Why don't you hop on over and join in the fun.  This is my take on the challenge.

My card is an A2 sz. card. The card base is white and the mat is purple. Both are from Bazzill card stock.
The purple check pattern paper and the tiny flower pattern paper are Recollection paper from Michaels. The paper on the bottom is from DCWV. This reminds me of chicken wire.

I added a scallop border from EK Success. The oval is a scallop oval die from Spellbinders. The chick is a stamp from PK Stamps.  Just love these stamps. I paper pieced the chicks head and wing with some of the pattern paper.  Love the sentiment "What's Up Chickie".

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave a comment, I love reading them.

Hello Everyone,

Todays card is a Baby Card I made for a baby shower I'm going to the end of April. I'm also entering it at Cardz TV Baby Card Challenge.

My card is an A2 sz. 4.25 x 5.50" card in White. The yellow mat measures 4"x5.25" and it's from Bazzill. The pattern paper (so cute) is from Joann's and measures 3.75"x5". I think the pattern paper is perfect for this stamp set.  The stamps I used are from Peachy Keen. Just love this set. I colored the cow and moon with my copics.  I added the navy ribbon from American Crafts, and tiny yellow buttons from Joann's.  I love how it came out.

Thanks for looking, and have a nice day.  Thank you also for leaving a comment, I appreciate it very much.

Hello my crafty friends,

Todays card is a Starburst  card. I got this inspiration from you tube. It was so easy to make the Starburst, and I really like how it turned out.

My card is an A2 sz. with a black mat and dark green mat. Card stock is from Co-ordinations.
My Starburst papers are from Studio G paper pack I got at Michaels. All the papers cor-ordinate and I really like that. The face and shamrock is from Peachy Keen Stamps STOMC from last March. The hat is from Create A Critter 2 and cut with my Cricut.  I added some Bakers Twine and the sentiment is from my computer.

Hope you like my card. Please leave a comment as I really enjoy reading them.  Thank You.

Hi My Crafty Friends,

Sorry I haven't been posting for so long, I guess life just gets in the way. I have been crafting a bit, but just haven't been posting.  I made this card for my friend for her birthday.  I hope she likes it.  I'm also entering  this in the Cardz TV Challenge. The challenge is to make a birthday card, so it came at the right time.

My Card is an A2 size White Card Base. The Black dot paper is from a paper pad called Glitter Card Paper by Pooch & Sweetheart. I have had this pad a long time. The black and white card stock is from Colorbok and I embossed the white with the Swiss Dots folder. The scallop edge is my EKSuccess punch called Scallop Scallop.  The flowers are also a EK Success punch and I just added stickles to them to give it some bling.  The leaves are a MS Punch and I also added stickles.  The sentiment is a stamp from Stampin Up.  Added black lines w/ my gel pen to give it some demention.

Hope you like my card.
