Thanks for the assist!

Right now there is a challenge going on over at the Hambo Hoedown and it's anything goes!  I had to pull out one of my favorite digis and I think this will be perfect for my DH to send to a friend who has assisted him on more than one occasion!  Hope you all are having a great friend and that you are looking forward to the new year!  I know I am looking forward to 2013 and all of the changes that are coming up for me...just not at all looking forward to the packing!

Thank you cards!

Hello crafty friends!  I can't believe how long it's been since I last posted!  Yikes!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.  Mine was delightful and I will be celebrating again this upcoming weekend.  Lots of stuff has been keeping me away from my crafts but found some time today to whip up 25 graduation thank you cards that need to go out this week!  Hope you enjoy.  I was inspired to create this card after cutting out some tags for a friend-- after cutting some for her I decided I kinda liked how they looked.  I found the jumping grad online and the thank you is from CardzTV stamps and was perfect for this card!  Enjoy!

Nugget Boxes

I created some nugget boxes using the awesome cut available from My Scrap Chick and I love how easy the box was to put together!  I wrapped the nuggets with matching paper and they turned out pretty cute if I do say so myself!

I'm in trouble....

I am sooooo in trouble!  I have fallen hard... fallen in love with the Cameo... yikes!  I picked up these cuts from My Scrap Chick long before I even had a Cameo-- but I just had to have them.  I finally had some time to create these little purses tonight and made a couple of them with these cute little tags.  The sentiment "Merry Christmas" is from Cardz TV Stamps Christmas Joy and the "Naughty or Nice?" is from Pink By Design-- Winter Fun  I am linking these cuties up at the Pink By Design-- Tag You're It Challenge

Seeing You!


I am in love with these glasses-- soooo cute!  I hope you love them too.  I have had this card idea in my head for a very long time and I knew this sentiment would be a perfect addition to it.  I had to link it up with my friends at Unity Stamp Company for the Friends with Flair!  It's been way too long since I've joined the fun!

Hello my crafty friends!  There is a new challenge beginning today with my crafty friends at Eureka Stamps!  The challenge today is to sparkle and shine.  Well I am a bit of a scrooge and I am not working on holiday cards...perhaps I will be sending out Valentine's day cards this year versus Christmas!  We shall see.  But alas I know lots of people who are feeling under the weather so I thought this card would be perfect...and as you will see the cloud does have a bit of a silver lining...so things are definitely looking up :)  Please join us for the challenge-- we would love to see your creations.

Owl Always....

It's time for some more love and hugs cards with my friends at Operation Write Home.  So pull out those lovey dovey stamps and get crafting!  I had a lot of lovely ladies ask about the embossing folder I used for a card on Monday!  And I am sharing this folder again today-- along with some details of course!  The folder is from Provo-Craft and is a Cuttlebug Embossing Folder-- I can't seem to find it on the Cricut website but I did purchase it at JoAnns.

here's what it looks like!

And here is my card :)

You Warm My Heart!

Hello my crafty friends!  I was all set to play with my friends at Hambo but I simply couldn't find a card to case... all of them were just too amazing for me to copy :)  So I settled on pulling out a Hambo image and used the newest sketch at Operation Write Home.  I pulled out one of my new embossing folders for the xo's in the red!  And used a tiny jewel for the light on the toaster :)  Enjoy!

A bit early...

Yes, yes I know it's the Christmas season and winter should be my theme...but I just can't bring myself to be excited about holiday cards this year....in fact I might not even send any...yep...there I said it out loud for the world to know.

So I decided I would keep plugging away at a box to send off for Operation Write Home and right now it's Valentine's day time for OWH so I have love on the brain!  I pulled out some Pink By Design stamps and decided to link up this card at Link Up Tuesday PBD.


Winner!

Hello Everyone!  I had some blog candy up for grabs last week and random.org selected my winner for me!  Congratulations to Craftynayner31-- I will be in touch!!!

I love this card! Wait....I love all of your cards!

Guess Whooooooo?

Hello friends!  Hope you're having a great Saturday and you all had a great Thanksgiving on Thursday.  I am working on some card sets for my mom to give as gifts this year and I created 8 sets of cards with 5 in each set.  I tried to do a nice variety for her to give.  I've been using a lot of OWH sketches and really enjoying them a lot!  The inside of this cutie says "thinking of you."

Thanks a Latte!

I am working on some cards to get sent off to my lovely shipper Kris for Operation Write Home.  This week's mid-week throw down is a Thank You card challenge!

So I pulled out an old stamp from Amuse that I love and inked up one of my favorite stamps sets from CardzTV Stamps!  I adore this stamp set from Mary!  She's super :)  I'm debating if I should have matted the cup a bit differently... I still have a few cards left to put together so I might change up my design a bit this weekend when I can get back to my crafts!

Well I hope you enjoy my card a latte!

Mmmmm coffee!

So if I could I would definitely drink a cup of coffee this big... it would of course need to have some great creamer and be a self warming cup...but well anyway you catch my drift :)  I decided that I had NOT been crafting enough and decided that I should probably get in some challenges today.  I have been missing all of the fun over at The Hambo Hoedown Challenge Blog and decided that I best be joining them today!  I definitely need to add the super cute toaster image to my collection one of these days but decided on using Coffee Girl today-- isn't she stinkin' cute?!?!  I sure think so!  The challenge was to use gingham so I pulled out this sheet of paper and got busy!

The sketch I used is from Operation Write Home and I think this card will be perfect for someone to send home to a coffee lover :)  I know I'd love to see this cutie in my mailbox!  And I promise...in real life the greens match much better than this photo!  Sorry about the picture!


Music!

Hello my crafty friends.  It is time for another challenge with my awesome friends over at Eureka Stamps. This weeks challenge is to use a use some scripture or inspirational saying as your main focal point!  Definitely a super fun challenge.  You know you want to stop by and check it out!  Pull out those inspirational saying stamps and get creating :)  We would love to see what you create.
