Tuesday, December 16, 2014


Good day my crafty friends, I just wanted to share a beautiful card I finished up just a few minutes ago.... I used the new sketch from Cardabilities # 113 and the criteria for the 12 days of Christmas challenge happening over at the Flying Unicorn forum.

this is what I used from the 12 days of Christmas
1 bird -red fussy cut birdy
2 poinsettias -quite obvious
3 stickers (chipboard, epoxy, etc.) -I used enamel dots
4 pieces of trim (ribbon, lace, pearls, etc.) -a bit of lace,embroidered ribbon,lacy thing with the balls (lol) then a stringy fringe thread like thingy tied in a bow under the flowers
8 shapes (shapes can be the same – ex., 8 squares) - I used Squares
11 pearls (strand of pearls, adhesive pearls, etc.)-a whole lot of pearls

thank you so much for coming to take a peek!
Happy Holidays!

Better to Give

really early depending on how you look at things....

I spent most of the day being crafty as I had a couple things that I needed to get done for the holiday....this also works in my favor for the latest challenge over at Scrap Africa (Tell us what a traditional December is like for you, in your home town, city or country. So journalling is a must...even if just telling us the story on your blog!)

since I haven't really had time for a normal layout I decided to share what I've been working on today and kind of journal about it on my blog.

So we haven't had a typical December in the last couple of years..its just been real hard on us but we are gradually getting back into thing that has always been the same is the our giving nature, even when my girls were small we always donated more of our time and small gifts to those who needed them. As I started crafting the list of things to donate became even bigger...this year we took the homemade route I have made dozens of cards for St. Jude and dozens for a local nursing home (never mind the fact that I made 24 for my daughters friends and family)...we baked holiday cookies for the after school program (with homemade holiday tags)...this was great because we actually got to see them receive them...the smile are so worth any effort!

Both girls grew up knowing it was always better to give then to receive....My Sam is 22 years old and she still volunteers and has a special project of her own this year which leads to the things I was working on today.

 I had to make a bunch of daughter is sewing up a bunch of little pouches that will be holding some holiday candies for her to hand out!
 little box and tag for one of Sam's coworkers
and of course a very special Christmas card  for a very special little girl (wish I had thought of this one sooner...I would have sent these to my family LOL )

I'm not sure how much of this made any sense but thanks for stopping by and checking it out!

Happy Holidays!

Tea lights

I saw this tutorial on how to make these cute little tea lights...they are the perfect size for the batter operated kind (so my kitty doesn't burn her whiskers and I don't burn my house down lol) I thought they made the perfect Christmas decoration....I am entering this into the last challenge over at That's just so cute...I am so sorry this will be their last challenge, I have enjoyed playing along with them for awhile now!

I've made a couple different ones but I think I like this one the best!

CAS cards

Hi my scrappy friends.....well since I've been sick for about a week now I really haven't gotten any of my crafty projects done :(  today I sat at my desk and decided to make a couple clean and simple Christmas cards since my daughter has many many friends that she really wants to send some to!

I'm not the best card maker LOL but I do try..... I stumbled upon CAS(E) the other and thought I would give their sketch a try ( haha but then I got sick) so when I went back they had a new sketch... here is what I made...

CAS(E) this Sketch!
and since I didn't have to move much I made quite a few LOL..... and a couple different ones....

Evening my scrappy friends....let me just tell you I was really excited to see the new challenge over at Scrap Africa.....its called "TAG IT"

Tags are so versatile and can be used in so many ways!
So our challenge to you is to use your tags and show us what you can do with them.
Please just make sure that you use at least 2 tags.
You can create a page, card or OTP project. I was saying I was excited because I had these cute little Christmas tags I printed out awhile back but they were too small (yes yes I have issues with measurements LOL ) for the project I wanted to use them I just kind of tucked them away with all the other miscalculated items (there are lots and lots) I really try not to waste the end it will all get used!
so these tags were the perfect size for a Christmas card :)

a little ink.... a little stamp....add a bow..and..Tada a cute Christmas card!

thanks for coming to take a peek.....

Get well card

Good afternoon my scrappy friends, its a pretty miserable day here its all rainy and cold! I was hoping for a bit of sun this weekend....I can only hope to see it tomorrow!
So I wanted to share a little card I made using the new sketch from Scrap Africa

 sorry the picture really doesn't do this card any justice...I took so many and this was the best out of two batches... I think it was a combo of bad lighting and really light colors or maybe its just my crappy camera abilities LOL
thanks for coming to take a peek! Have a wonderful weekend! :)
