Happy Friday!

I am super psyched that the last day of the work week is FINALLY here! It was definitely a long week!

Here is a card I made to have on hand for Thanksgiving!

I apparently forgot how to take pictures so please excuse these! 

The pumpkin is from the Nursery Rhymes  Cartridge and I actually found it searching for a pumpkin on my Gypsy.  I chalked the edges in brown with my Creative Memories Chalking Ink, the colored the pumpkin's stem with a brown pen and used Peridot Martha Stewart glitter for the vine.

 The inside I used a reverse of the colors on the front to leave a space to write.

An open picture of the card ... I used the same paper on the back to tie it all together, and again my "Priceless" stamp.  The patterned paper is from the Cloud 9 Mat stack that I used for my Christmas card earlier this week.

So there you have it! What have you created this week?

Hallowen LO

Good Morning Everyone!

I hope this week is flying by for all of you (and me too!!) It always seems that when you've got time off coming up that it takes FOREVER to get there! My husband and I are looking forward to a 3 day weekend although for different reasons! I'm excited to hopefully do the last of the scraping on the front porch so that it can be painted before the snow starts to fall! He on the other hand is happy because it is a friend of ours' Birthday and we have a tradition of going to a place call the Hanger for the best wings around.  Either way I hope you all get to do what you want this weekend!

Anywho! Here is a new Halloween LO that I put together in my "trying to stay ahead" mission!

Here it is! (Sorry for the horrible pictures, but if I didn't take them when I did, you might not have ever seen them!) I did a black background and then chose an accent paper in orange pumpkins from a DCWV stack that I had sitting around from last year!

"Halloween" is from the Designer's Calendar Cartridge and I think it looks super cute on the page!

The cute little spiders are from sticker packs that I scooped up at Walmart last Halloween for 1.50$ a package! The green web wasn't that big so I used green stickles all over the entire web and extended it where I needed it to be so that it "fit" better in the spot I chose to use it!

So there you have it! My new Halloween page! Hope you enjoy!

Happy Crafting!

MPS Christmas Card Challenge

Hi Everyone! I hope that you all had a fabulous weekend!

Per usual, it was pretty hectic around here this weekend.  Friday night we got together with my step-dad's side of the family at a local pizza place that's a favorite.  Saturday I did some things around the house and then Jon and I went to a vow renewal for family friends of ours, and finally Sunday was a friend of mine's, son's 5th birthday party! WOO! I need a weekend to catch up from my weekend!

I didn't have much crafting time, but did manage to make an entry for the Challenge Robyn had over at My Pink Stamper to make a Christmas Card ... Here's my entry!

I chose to make a simple card using the Cricut Christmas Cheer cartridge for the Tree. The background paper is from a new Cloud 9 Mat Stack (which is larger then the normal size so that you don't have to cut down the picture at all if you don't want to!) I like it because it gives you a little extra paper to play with either on the inside of back of your card!

The "star" is a small wooden button that has brown floss tried in a knot on top.

On the back I used a "Priceless" stamp which I thought was cute and added a little finishing touch.  I hope to eventually find somewhere that makes custom stamps so that I can get one made with my own name =)

The sentiment is from a random Christmas stamp set that I realized I had around, although I'm in need for some new ones for sure!

So there you have it! My simple entry to the My Pink Stamper card challenge!

I hope you all get the time to be crafty today!

Happy October!

Good Morning! We made it to the weekend  ... WOO HOO! Happy October! I can't believe how quickly this year has flown ... so with that said here are a couple of Halloween cards that I've made to add to my stash!

They're pretty simple, but I love the way that orange and purple look with black in anything Halloween related!

Both of the little spiders have glitter on the tips their legs!

The paper is DCWV from a stack that I had gotten online from Jo-Ann Fabrics a while back.  The Stamp is a dollar bin find from either Michaels or AC Moore. 

Quick and easy enough for anyone to do!

Hope you have a fabulous day!

Happy Crafting!
