Merry Christmas Eve Eve!!!!

Hello Lovelies,
Hope everyone is having a beautiful holiday season filled with love and craftiness! I'm just stopping by to share a little thank you/holiday card I made for a super sweet couple! I used Dante and Charlotte Chic from The Greeting Farm to represent the cute couple and love how sweet they look together even though I really, really, really need to work on coloring skin because they are so splotchy! But anyway, I don't think my card recipients will be that critical! :) I am also super proud that I actually used three sentiment stamps from three different stamp sets I purchased this month! Really trying to use my supplies and not just hoard them! :)

Entering this card into The Greeting Farm's Challenge- Christmas Wish. Used the Studio Calico Stamp sentiment that says "wishing you peace, love and a whole lot of joy joy joy"!!!

Well, I have a  couple of birthday cards to make and of course last minute Christmas stuff that I need to work see ya later! Thanks for stopping by!

Sparkly Glittery Sunday!!!

Hello Beautiful People,
We have been iced in since Friday and I'm beginning to feel the effects of Cabin Fever!!!! Well, technically I was brave (aka dumb) and ventured out on Friday (otherwise we would have starved-LOL), but I have fingers so doubly crossed that this ice mess is gone by tonight so my boys can GO to school! OMGEEE! I love them, but gee whizz.....everyone gets a lil cray after being in the house too long! Anyway.... the weather has a postive though, it's a perfect time to get crafty!!!

My hubby asked me to make a card for his coworker so that everyone could sign it and then take it to the hospital. So, I started with one of my favorites- Angel Anya! She's so adorable! And then followed the sketch from Mojo Monday.

Also, had to play along with TGF challenge- All that Sparkles to use something sparkly. I used some sparkly paper behind my little angel and it's hard to see but there is a little bit of glitter on her wings too!
Well, heopefully I'll use my "iced-in" time wisely and craft a bit more! Have a beautiful Sunday!

TGF Cyber-Monday Celebration Hop

Hello & Happy Cyber Monday!!! I can't think of a better way to spend the day than with my favorite rubber stamp company-- The Greeting Farm!!!


I am so excited about this celebration and can't wait to hop along and be inspired! So, thank you for taking the time to hop over to my little bloggity blog!

I decided to make a Christmas card using one of my favorite boys - "Hello Ian"! I just love his hat and his little outfit- perfect for paper piecing! I'm a novice at coloring, so paper piecing is my go to technique for creating fun and colorful clothes for my little TGF cuties!

Supplies--Stamps: The Greeting Farm (Hello Ian), Docerela Creations (Snow Fun); Patterned Paper: Crate Paper, October Afternoon; Brads and Stickers: October Afternoon; Card Base and Glitter Tape: Recollections; Ink: Copics, Momento, Ranger

Well, I hope that you all are having a beautiful start to the holiday season!  I know that there are many more blogs to hop around to see on the The Greeting Farm Cyber-Monday Celebration. So, grab a mug of your favorite season drink (mmmm....salted carmel hot chocolate is my favorite) and enjoy the hop!

Thanks so much for visiting! Your next stop is Jane PJ!!!

Here is the Cyber-Monday Hop list in case you get lost....

Happy December Part Dos

Told ya I'd brb! Here's another card I made for the Hero Arts Holiday challenge. This time I took the part of the challenge that calls for using the Hero Arts Neon inks! I'm a total 80s girl, so neon is right up my ally! :) And, again I used the Christmas Snowman Hero Arts stamp set! I also opened up the box of Hero Arts -Just Tags that I purchased earlier this year! I'm elated right now...after months of not really crafting...I've got my Christmas music cranked up and I'm playing with some of my favorite crafty goodies! Happy Sunday, lovelies!

Happy December!!!


It's been quite a while since I've dusted off my bloggity blog. Well, I hope that December will change that since I have so many plans to make sure I get the most out of this month creatively and in so many other ways, too. I picked up a couple of new Hero Arts stamp sets last night at Michaels for BOGO...woot woot!

I came across a fab challenge at Hero Arts blog so in keeping with my theme this month (use it or loose it) I've already broken the seal on "Snowman Christmas" to play along! Here's a quick little card I made..

I started out with the Retrosketch #92

Then following my theme I picked up a piece of scrap Heidi Swapp resist paper and stamped the adorable little snow man on it because part of the challenge is to use your favorite stamping technique. I love the resist tech.  Its's a somewhat grungy and messy little card, but it was fun to make. I think I'm off to play with my Neon inks....I'll be back....
