Hello. Wow did this week fly by!! I can't believe November is just around the corner...
I made this adorable Wizard of Oz album from a kit I bought at Archivers. Couldn't wait to make it!! I love vintage so this really caught my eye. Not sure what pictures I will put in it yet but I am so happy I got it. At first I was a little confused with the directions but then I figured it out and smooth sailing from then on. I made a few other things this week but cant show them because they are gifts for Christmas.

This is a sympathy card I made for a friend who lost her Mother in law this week. I never seem to have a sympathy card when I need it. I really should make up a bunch to have on hand. Not a fun card to make but unfortunately one that I seem to use a lot of.
Have a great Friday! See you soon!

Hello! I had such a wonderful weekend!! We had a whole weekend at a friends house to stamp/scrap and just have fun. There were around 10 of us. We had wonderful food, conversations and laughing till our sides hurt. We shared secrets(I will never look at pepper the same) and camped out all over her house. It was just SO MUCH FUN!! Some of us also went to the stamping convention that was in town.
I worked on my Christmas cards while I was there. I made different "variations" of it. They are pretty flat so I can mail them without the extra cost if I added a lot of dimension with layers or embellishments. I made them look a little vintage this year.
Thanks for stopping by today. It's raining here and I have other people in the house today so no cleaning is gonna get done. Darn! I guess I will have to craft....isn't that the pits?! LOL! Have a great day!

Hello Hello!! It's Sunday and a dreary one at that. Rainy,cold...good day to stay in and craft! Got my sweats on, dinner in the crock pot, and many projects calling my name. I'm still working on all those class projects. I need 15 diff. ones and I am heading into the home stretch..YAY!
This is one of the projects.. a cute little S'more. Pretty simple card. I added a little liquid applique to the top of his head and intentionally heated it extra long until it started to "burn". Wanted him to look nice & toasty. I cut him out and popped him up to give the card some dimension. Used an embossing folder on the background. Added a few finishing touches and voila...the card is done! Thanks for stopping today. Enjoy your afternoon. TTFN (ta ta for now)!

Hello! It's Tuesday here and another gorgeous day..high 75..loving this weather. Tomorrow the rain comes back :(. As I sit here you can hear all the acorns falling off our trees hitting my roof. At first my little dog would bark every time she heard it but now it's old news! Thank goodness!
I hate to show cards for my class before class because I like the ladies to be surprised. But, I don't have anything else to show you! LOL! Isn't this snowman stamp from Whipper Snapper so cute. I just love their little round bodies! Added some glitter to the snow areas and some gold smooch to the bells. Used some snowflake embossed paper I had and finished it off with a snowflake with a bell brad in the middle. I'm struggling making "winter" cards when its so beautiful out. But the holidays will be here before we know it!
Thanks for coming around today. Have a good one!

Hi. Happy Sunday!
It's a gorgeous day here! The leaves are all changing colors..pretty!
I seem to have lost my mojo lately. With all that has been going on in the last month or so it has left me a little drained. I am recovering though so don't you worry! I will hopefully get back in the swing of things and start posting more often!
This card is one I designed for an upcoming class. I used a stamp set & matching die cut from Prickly Pear. The first one I made I ended up throwing out. So this is the revised card. Hope the ladies like it! I just love how versatile this set is. Can be used for any occasion. Thanks for taking a peek and I hope you'll stop back soon.
Have a wonderful rest of the day!

Hi my crafty friends! I have a quick card to show you that I made last night. This puppy is from the Boys will be boys Cricut cartridge. I kept it simple.
Remember that tooth I got pulled the other day? Well it turned in to a dry socket...OUCH! VERY painful!! Needless to say, Vicoden & crafting don't mix!! It makes me tired so I've been sleeping a lot. Went back yesterday to have it packed with medicine and back again today. Seems to be on the mend :) Can't wait to get creating again.
It's a beautiful fall day here today. The squirrels are in a frenzy in my yard collecting nuts. I have several oak trees and black walnut trees so this is their favorite hang out. Gotta take advantage of the nice weather while you can!
