Dec 2012 Bday Card

Hi Everyone, 
Yes, I'm back again to share my finished card.  I shared an image that I color earlier and I some issues with her hair but I think it work out at the end. 

Here is the card:

Don't mind the the overcast weather we are having.  I thought it would be best to take a picture on my deck but it's a bit blue just like the card. Hehe!!  

I used several items that are brand new such as Create a card Spellbinder sets A and B, Greeting Farms - Miss Anya Scarves, and Twine.

This was my first try with these stamps and I need more practice coloring them.  She came out ok but I know I can do better in time.  If you want to know my list of Copics just let me know.

The paper I used were Bazzil cardstock and Sandylion - Snowflakes.  This worked out perfectly because her favorite color is blue.  

Oh, one more thing, I used a dollar store Happy Birthday sentiment and her birthday hat.  I love doing this to images.  The hat doesn't come with the Greeting farm set.  I added it after.  I love how that turned out don't you.  

I hope you all like this card.  

Have a great Saturday and take care:

Something I'm working on...

I had to share because I need some help.
I'm working on a birthday card for my Hubby's Niece and I can't seem to color brown hair. 

I think it's ok but I think I need more practice.  This is my first time coloring these Greeting Farm Stamps.  I just love these version of the Miss Anya Line.  I'm not too fawn of the others.  
I love the paper I paper pieced her sweater and boots.  

Here she is:

I hope to be back with the finished card in a bit.  

Thanks for checking it out and let me know what you all think.

Gift Card Holders for Family

Hi Everyone, 
I'm back again to share another project that I have been working on for family this year. 
I cased Kathy Orta's idea from last year.  I craft with some friends about 3 weeks ago and showed how to make these and then I ended up making several for my family. 

Check it out:

So, I used more of that fabulous paper from Authentic Festive.  I have a ton of papers left from this collection.  I need to make a DEC daily.  I know it's too late but one day I'm going to make one. LOL!!

I also used some KandCo Christmas chipboard pieces that I got from Target awhile back.  I made some tags for them to add pictures and maybe journal.  Love making these for family and friends.  I made these last year from my friends.  They loved them. 

I hope our family will enjoy these as well.  

It has been a horrible weekend for the families in CT.  My heart and prayers goes out to them.
This violence has to stop! 

I hope everyone is having a Great Monday so far.

Take care and hug your little ones,

♥♥ Friday ♥♥

Teachers Xmas Gifts 2012

Hi Everyone, 
I wanted to share some gifts I just put together this week.  
Every year I buy a little something for my kids teachers.  Either an ornament, gift cards or just a simple Christmas cards from my kids. 
This year I had a fabulous idea to give Xmas mugs and stuff them with Hot Chocolate mix, marshmallows, candy cane and a Starbucks gift card.  I had mentioned this idea to another mother and she implied that it was a bad idea to give a teacher mugs these days.  First, I was hurt to think that this was a terrible idea but as I thought about it she made perfect sense.  A teacher that has been teaching awhile could have collected many many mugs throughout her career so I had to think of another vessel to put these goodies in.  

I saw Robyn from Injoystampin on Youtube show this idea on her channel.  I have also seen Jo from Paperdrama on Youtube also showed this idea as well.  So, I thought it would be perfect to create.  

Here it is:

These were so simple to make and I hope they enjoy them. 

I ran out to 711 to snatch a few coffee sleeves to alter.  I used more of my Authentic Festive 12x12 paper that I just love so much.  Added some natural looking ric rac trim that I got from Joanns.  I had a few more of those snowflake buttons and added a bling in the center.  I found some gingerbread tags from target and viola done.  In the packets I added  Swiss Miss Hot Chocolate pack, packet of marshmallows, two Ghirardelli Peppermint Bark Squares (Mm new addiction).  Yumm!

So, I know I haven't made a video in a long time but I have been creating here and there.  
I just don't have time to make a video lately.  
Hopefully, I will be back in motion in the new year. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today.  Have a fabulous weekend.

MSR Swap gifts I've made

Hi Everyone, 
Today I wanted to share something quick that I made for the ladies in my Swap over at MSR.  
I try to make some thing for everyone including the hostess as a thank you.  
I found these mittens at my Michaels (No, I didn't make them. I wish I did).

So, check it out:

I then made some stickpins to go with.  The mittens are stuffed ornaments but to me they look like pin cushions. So, made a pin for each of the ladies in my group.  I thought this was so cute and I had to add to my package to Sonya (Hostess).  

I hope you all like them.
Thanks so much for stopping by today. 

Have a good Tuesday!

Christmas Cards for 2012

Hi Everyone, 
I wanted to share my Christmas Cards this year.  I have completed them in record time because it's usually a week before the holiday I finish them. LOL!!  But not this year.  I found the little bit of my mojo I could find and finished them ahead of schedule.  

Like I mentioned in my previous post, I use the same idea with the Window die for the ATCs for my Christmas Cards.  

Check it out:
I used the Grand Madison Window die.
I just love this card.  Let me go through all products I used. 

Paper:  American Crafts Cardstock
Pattern Paper:  Authentic Festive 12x12 pack
Die: Memory Box Grand Madison Window
Punches:  Martha Stewart pine branch, box, and border punches
SU modern and word punches.
Pens: SU markers
Embossing :  Tim Holtz Brick embossing folder
Dollar Stamp: Candle
Snowflake buttons from Walmart.

I love this die.  I can use this die on a number of cards.

Well, I hope you all are having a great holiday season so far.  I just love this time of year.  I could do without all the stress it brings but I love the excitement in my kids most of all. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today. 

Take Care... Hugs!

MSR Vintage Xmas ATCs

Hello Everyone, 
I can't believe it's December already. Where has the time gone?  It just seem like it was Halloween months ago. And I thought I had all the time in the world.  Well, I don't and it's coming in quick. 

Today, I do have something to share FINALLY!!  I thought I would join in on an ATC swap over at My Scrap Room Ning site.  I really struggled on deciding on joining but I couldn't resist this because I just love vintage images.  I found an old Coke Cola Santa on line and I had to use it (not knowing what or how to use it on my ATC).  And I'm so glad I joined.

So, here it is.

I used my new Memory Box Small Madison Window die.  I absolutely love this die and I'm so glad I used it.  It's like looking in on Santa.  Hehe!!  I used the Martha Stewart Punch - drippy good border punch for the white snow. (Loved how this turned out).  Yay, for another purpose for that punch. I also used MS bow punch.  Then I used a Tonic snowflake punches I got at Tuesday Morning.  

I hope you all like them.  It was fun to make and I hope this is a start of more to come. 

Thanks everyone for stopping by today.

Have a Great Thursday and a Wonderful Friday!!


♥♥ Friday ♥♥
