Good Morning! I still my heart. She's posted 2 days in a row! Now that the holidays are winding down I have more time to get back to my crafting. I need to do's my therapy!!
The "you're so sweet" card is a thank you card I need to send out. It was made with a sizzix tag die & you got the little candy die for free. It was a christmas item so it was 60% off. I got a gift card from my son's girlfriend for Jo Anns so I stopped there yesterday.
The owl card stamp was just soo cute. I figured it would make a great "generic" birthday card for my stash. I think it still needs a little something though not sure what. I didn't want to totally cover up the birthday embossing. Maybe I will add 2 tiny buttons or brads....
Thanks for stopping. Have a great day! Hopefully when you come back tomorrow I will have something new for you! I plan on staying home in my comfy clothes and doing laundry while I stamp. Sounds like a fun day!! See you soon...

Hello! Welcome back. I finally got a little time to craft. My son got me the Cricut cartridge Lite called B is for Boy. I just adore the sock monkey on there. He is cute! The dog is also on that cartridge. Looking forward to making others from it. The Happy Birthday is from a Martha Stewart punch.
Yesterday I stamped with a friend for a little while. It was nice to visit & have lunch with her. Hopefully life will get back to normal. I am hustle bustled out!
Have a great day. See you soon!

Monday,monday.... Hello! Can you believe it's Christmas week?! I still have sooo much to do! Today I am sharing with you the calendars I have made for some gifts. They took me forever! I feel like I have been working on these far too long. They turned out cute so I hope they are liked by the recipients. They measure 4x6" and they are in acrylic stand up frames. Each month has it's own page.
I also have a class this week. Today I have to make next month's samples and get tomorrow's kits ready. Then tonight my son is being honored for Fireman of the Year in the community he works in. Exciting! Enjoy your day. Toodles!

Hello & Happy Wednesday to ya! It's really looking like Christmas around here...lots of the white stuff outside! I have been pretty busy. Way behind in my Christmas card making. Monday was a snow day so I got to create all day! Didn't want to head out in to the bad weather so I stayed around here. Comfy pants, hot chocolate & crafting. A perfect day!!! My cards are very similar to one we made at my class. I spent all day mass producing. Still don't have enough though!
Last night I went to a friends church and we made holiday centerpieces. I think they turned out so nice and they smell good too. Unfortunately my cat is loving it. Keeps pulling the pine out then I catch the puppy chewing on it. It is on my kitchen table & I DO NOT allow the cat on there but obviously she sneaks when I am not looking! Have a great day.

Monday, monday...
Hello my long lost blog friends!! I have been away due to a family member that was in ICU. He was on a respirator but is now on the mend. I caught some sort of bug, probably from the hospital! Feeling better now but sooo far behind on everything!
This is my last Squigglefly post! My term is over and some new people will be taking over. It sure was fun! For our last challenge we were to make a gift card holder. I just love this snowman so I had to use just have to get a gift card to put inside and it will be good to go! You can check out my other team members creations on the Squigglefly challenge blog. Lots of different ideas!
Well, we are supposed to get a HUGE storm bringing lots of snow. Might be good because I will be able to catch up on some of the things that I haven't gotten to! Thanks for stopping and bear with me. I hope to get back on track soon. I know some of my readers are sad when they don't see something new. I will try really hard to get my "butt in gear". Until next time!...

No new card today but this is a reminder what Christmas is really about! We all get caught up in the hustle bustle of the holidays and take our focus off the real reason for the season.

Isn't this a cute way to make a gift out of a candy bar? I saw these on Splitcoast and just had to make them for my stamping group. Didn't take long at all. I added some stickles to the heart for a little bling. Added a tiny bell to his hat and used ribbon for his scarf. Inexpensive to make but something to let someone know you care about them!
Have a great day!

Hello! I am still around! I've heard from of few people that they missed me! new favorite hobby seems to be napping...resulting in less crafting!

Squigglefly had a new release this past weekend and all I can say is I'm late,I'm late for a very important time to say Hello,Goodbye..I'm late,I'm late I'm late! But better late than never. The bunny card is a Get Well card..inside says Get Well Soon!
The fireman card was made with an image from one of my design team sisters, Marlene Shaw. He is called "Phat Phireman". I think he looks a little jolly like Santa! I think it will make a good Birthday card for someone who will have a lot of candles on their cake!

I also made my husband's Christmas cards for his business. He fixes shuttle buses and wanted a bus incorporated into his cards. I found this stamp & got the go ahead from him. I put a Santa hat sticker over Snoopy's ball cap. I like how they turned out! Finding bus stamps has proved to be difficult!
Hope you have a great day! I made some cute Christmas goodies for my Stamp class tonight. Look for tomorrow's post to see what they are! I can't post it now because a few of the ladies look at my blog & I want them to be surprised!
