My ATC for November!

     Hi Everyone,  I wanted to share my November ATC for a swap I'm hosting over at http://www.myscraproom.ning.com/.  It was a Fall theme ATC and this is what I cam up with.  I didn't want it to be too dimensional on this one.  I just love this time of year when the leaves change colors not so much of them falling because you know who has to rake them up. LOL!!  Since I use to live in Hawaii we didn't have the changing of the season and now that I'm here I just love it.  My sinus hasn't been the same but I don't care.  

I use some fall papers form Me and My Big Ideas.  It had foiled lined leaves.  Then I stamped and embossed in gold a dollar stamp I got from Michaels on transparencies.  Used some leaf brads and punched out some leaves out of cardstock.  I embossed the edges of the leaves with gold detail embossing powder and used some stampin' dimensionals from SU and that's it. 

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving with your family and friends.  I had a nice quiet time with mine. 

Thanks for stopping in and taking a moment.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

      Hi everyone, as I promised here is my Thanksgiving Card I made for family and friends this year.  I love making cards for them.  It's like a tradition I like to do now.  Everyone seems to expect a handmade card from me and I enjoy it.    I hope you all like it too.

      So, I wanted to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.  I'm so grateful and thankful for my family and friends.  And I'm also thankful for all the friendships I have made through this crafting experience and I hope it never ends. 

     Thanks everyone who have commented on my blog and also those that follow me on this amazing journey.  I hope I can continue to love this hobby for many years to come.

Thanks for stopping by and taking a minute of your day.

Hugs, Friday

Kimmi Dolls from Hawaii

    Hi everyone,  I haven't been in a creative mood lately but I did want to share some adorable dolls I got from my Sister from Hawaii.  I'm orginally from Hawaii but now I live in Virginia.  I haven't been home ever since my daughter was born so, there are times I truly miss my home dearly.  This past girls day, My sister gave my daughter a cute doll (the doll that is not in a plastic container) for Hina Matsuri (it's a japanese celebration in Hawaii).  I absolutely fill in love with the doll and I asked her if she could pick me up some more just because I loved them so.  Isn't it Super Adorable?  It just bring me back home. 

I hope everyone is having a great Monday and thanks for stopping by!!  I will post a picture of my Thanksgiving card I made this year for my family and friends on Wednesday, so stay tuned... hehe!!

Goodies I got

     Hi everyone, I just wanted to share what I got in the mail on Friday.  I got one box from hallmarkscrapbook.com for the two dies you see above.  Thanks to Kathy aka canadianscrappergirl on Youtube mentioned it to me and said they still had them.  So, I rushed over there and order it and I also got the on the edge die from Tim Hotlz.  I was super excited about getting that dress form die.  Now, if only I can get the dress and overall die I would be a happy girl. LOL!! 

     Then I got a surprise package from my Sista in Hawaii.  She bought me some Hawaiian stamps.  They are they so adorable?  Thanks you, Sis.  She also gave me a couple of japanese Kimmi dolls (which are not in the pic) that are popular in Hawaii.  I absolutely love them all.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

Crimper Rosette

Hi everyone, Hope you all had a great week and are ready for the weekend.  I wanted to share a birthday card I made for my daughter's classmate.  I was playing around with my crimper and tried the TH rosette and I really like it.  It's really a simple card but I really wanted to share how I made the rosette like the TH die.  I don't have the decorative strip and I thought I would try it with my crimper and it turned out great. I do have the Scor-pal though but this was easier.  What I did was I used my Crimper from Fiskars to a 1 inch strip of brown cardstock and folded it back and forth.  The crimper made it so easy to fold.  I will try to use my scallop border punch to do the edges.  It will look just like the rosette flower TH die .

Thanks everyone for stopping by and have a Fabulous weekend.

November Birthday Card!

     Hi everyone, I hope everyone is having a great weekend.  I wanted to share a birthday card I made for a dear friend of mine.  I have known her now for about 13 years and she is a great friend.  So, I wanted to make her a shabby birthday card. 

     I sort of paper piece the dress with the same paper I used for the background.  I must say it was a lot of fun.  No wonder Bona and Rina enjoy doing it.  I used a Inkadinkado clear stamps set called Friendship.  Then I used a new stamp set from My Sentiments Exactly, Birthday Sentiments that I got from ACMoore for $5.00.   I used a paper doily to make the lace.  I made it look old with antique linen distress ink.  I really love how this card looks.  Wrapped some pink ribbon around the waiste of the dress with a pearl.  I also used  pink ribbon to trim out the lace. 

     Please enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Lace Flowers!!

Hi everyone, I thought I would share a picture of some flowers I have been working on lately.  I bought some really cheap lace at ACMoore the other day and i wanted to try out these lace flowers for a project I have been working on for a while now.  It's an Acrylic Album for my daughter and these flowers would really go well with the look of the mini.  I used some of my older flowers like the wire ribbon flower, ribbon flower, and mini paper flowers.  Take a looksie... LOL...

I wanted to add some other centers to them but that will be for another post. hehe!!  Thanks for stopping by and taking a peak.  Hope everyone is have a great week so far.  It's hump day you know and tomorrow is a Holiday.  Yay!!

Carved Pumpkins

     Hi Everyone, I know that Halloween is now over but I could not help to share some pictures of our Jack-O-Lantern this year.  My kids helped by digging and scooping out all the yummy seeds and yucky goo out of the pumpkin.  They had a blast.  Then they picked out a design.  Well, each child wanted something different so we decide to put both designs on one Pumpkin.  Check it out.

My Son wanted a spooky Spider.

My Daughter wanted a sneeky Cat.

     I placed the design on the pumpkin and poked the holes to outline the design.  Then my hubby did the amazing carving.  Didn't he do an Awesome Job!!  I think so. 

     I hope you all had a Wonderful and Safe HaLlOwEeN!! 

Thanks for stopping by everyone.  Take Care!!

Hugs, Friday
