Giveaway Alert!!!!

Stopping by quickly to let you know about a fantabulous giveaway from Tina at a dog's life: GIVEAWAY times FOUR! Her blog is super inspiring, so hop on over and visit her and enter her mega generous giveaway while your at it!!!
AND.....

Today's my mommy's birthday!!! Yay! Happy Birthday, Momsie!!!
 Here's a quick lil' peek of my horrible wrapping skills- LOL!

I made that little tag in like 1minute--LOVE October Afternoon!!! I ordered an OA Santa Sack again this year and it was filled with yumminess, AND then I went to my "not so local" LSS which was having 40% off storewide sale yesterday and got a ton more OA goodies! I think I have an illness! So needless to say I think I'm good till next year on my OA fix! Well, I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and were able to score some after Christmas scrappy deals, too! I know I went a little haywire in Target today! But, I'm still stalking them for the 75% off sale! Oh, my goodness I wish that I could be a lady of leisure and just spend my days snapping up bargains, scrapping, and getting"chocolate wasted"!!!! LMBO...oh and doing Zumba to fight the effects of the chocolate overdoses! LOL! Well, I've rambled enough...good day, I say good day!!! (oh and obviously if I were a lady of leisure I would watch a ton of movies, too) :P

Merry Christmas!!!!

Hope everyone's Christmas is Merry and Bright!!!! I had to make some cards in the wee hours of the morning and found a couple of fun places to play while I was at it....

This first card is based on the sketch from Freshly Made Sketches


Kept this really simple, especially since I was fighting to keep my peepers open at like 2am!!!

The next card is based on a sketch at Mojo Monday...


Also entering into:

Another simple card and notice I used another one of my lovely JCP buttons! I love those things and am kinda sad that the promo is over! :(   Well, I'll be hoarding a few of these, but think I may stop by there tomorrow and see if they'll give me some for my crafty endeavors! Well, I'm sitting here planning in my mind that I want to make my first vinyl project with my Cameo, but instead I just keep surfing the net...Hmmm...we'll see...Well, enjoy your Christmas- hope that is filled with family, friends, love and many blessings!

Merry Christmas!!!

Prayers...

Just like the rest of America, my heart is so heavy tonight with the thought of the babies and educators who were senselessly taken away today in Connecticut! I usually avoid the news because at work I see so many horrific things and try to avoid it when I'm off the clock, but tonight I'm sitting here watching the coverage and thinking...praying for the victims, their families and friends, and for America, and even more so...the World! There is nothing we can do to ease the pain at this time, but I saw this on Facebook and as scrapbookers, crafters, and memory keepers I thought I would share this here with you because I am definitely going to send cards and prayers to the school. The healing process is going to be a long hard road and this is the least I can do to show support and love. Please join me and spread the word! 
Here is one of the first cards I've made: 


Supplies: Sketch and Kit: Studio Calico; Stamp: Docerela Creations- Mix and Match II

And because this is so close to my heart since I have a little cousin and a niece who are both kindergartners and I have a child who is in elementary school I would like to invite you to leave me a link to any cards that you make and send to the school because I am offering a nice drawing of scrappy supplies for anyone who leaves a comment with a link to their post! I will try and post a pic of the RAK by the end of the weekend, but will leave this open for a couple of weeks...more deets soon! Please spread the word. Help let the  survivors  know that we are praying for them!  Thank you for allowing me to pour out my heart! Be blessed, Loves!

Challenge: Create any project of your choice.  Must use a decorative edge, border punch or cricut and sentiment. 

Here's my project! (I apologize for the wacky camera picture, but my camera charger is missing :(




It started off as a card for a friend who is going through a rough time and needs a little reminder that she is a ROCKSTAR! But, as I continue to look at it, I'm thinking it might evolve into a mini book...HMMM!....Well, I used the newest Docerela stamp set "Smash*it"!!! I'm telling you I love this set and I'm not kidding when I say....you need it!!!! Isn't it so fun! 

And now take a look at all the awesomeness (yep that's the word of the day) that the Smash*it set contains...And then GO HERE to order yours!!!

Docerela Creations New Stamp Set Reveal!!!



Happy Friday,  Friends!!!! These days it seems like Fridays can't get here soon enough, but especially this Friday because we finally get to share this AWESOME new Docerela Creations Smash*it Stamp set with you!!!! Oh, I know I've said it before, but this set is my new favorite! And don't worry if you're not a SMASH-aholic, because this set is so versatile that you can use it on a ton of projects! So, I know you want to see it, but first let me tell you we also have a new challenge today....


Woot Woot! Yep, that's right anything your little heart desires....make it and link it up HERE to play along with us! Oh and did I mention that you could win a stamp set for playing along? Yep, an awesome Docerela Creations stamp set is up for grabs just for playing along with our challenge!!!

OK, so for my project I decided to alter a little Martha Stewart notebook that I got on sale at Staples. Mini notebook plus the Docerela Smash*it stamp set equals MAJOR FUN!!! I will be using this notebook to jot down little notes and anecdotes that I may eventually want to scrapbook or just have a record of because my memory is definitely not what it use to be these days! LOL! There are so many great sentiments and images in this set that I literally wanted to squeeze all of them on here! But then I realized that it was probably not a  great idea. Heehee, so definitely look for more projects to come with  the new Smash*it set!!!!

And now take a look at all the awesomeness (yep that's the word of the day) that the Smash*it set contains...And then GO HERE to order yours!!!

Now, please go and visit all the other blogs on the Docerela Creations team to see the awesome projects that they have to share with you today!
