Tis the Season! New Card Kit!!

I will have a new card kit up by the end of the weekend on Etsy! These are just some of things you can make with the kit! Add stuff from your own stash to make it completely you-unique!!

The tag will look so cute on a Holiday gift and who doesnt love getting a chocolate bar, especially when its wrapped up all pretty!!??!! Here's a close up of the card! I've decided Felt is my new friend! I love working with it and makes things look so soft and pretty!!

I still need to brush up on my photo skills...I've decided that my camera is really the problem =;O) but it doesnt help that I can't find the proper lighting!
Hard to believe the Kids start school on Monday! Happy about it but realize they are so getting older! My Daughter is heading into Middle did that happen??? Amazing!!!
Have a great weekend and don't forget to swing by my Etsy shop later on in the weekend!! Hugs!

Happy Birthday, Mum!!

My Mum is going to be older this I made her a card...and I "aged" it to match her! heheheheh.... My picture taking skills need some serious work...I know!!

I used a K&C Flower, they are so fun, like little pom pom's of happiness! The pink lace was sent to me (Thanks Becky!!) and its just lovely. The buttons, in a bag of beautiful, pinks, greens and blues. I'm not sure where the chipboard came from. The striped paper is Imaginisce and the beautiful patterned paper is from Tinkering Ink, which I just love!
I'm so use to doing things neat and precise. Clean edges, nothing undone. "Shabby", Distressing are kinda new to me so Im having fun playing around with different elements and techniques. I hope you like my mood?! I know, I do. Thanks for visiting me and have a fabulous day!

Halloween Tags!

I made these tags last Halloween and just listed them in my Etsy shop. They are sooooo fun to make and have a spooky and vintage mood to them..which seems to be MY mood lately.

Im still working on the school tags and trying to figure out what little treat I can put in their backpacks without them knowing and that wont get smashed... Any Ideas?

School's almost Back in Session!!!

The summer is coming to a close. The kids get their new schedules soon and I will have 3 kids in 3 different schools, luckily, 1 has his own car. I'm dreading the cost...this years yearbook is $80 alone for one of them! Add in the P.E. clothes, dues, pictures, ect....well...its overwhelming!!
I made this card today just because I am Thankful for school starting soon and that the kids still like school, well....most of the time! Its exciting!

I'm working on a couple of little school tags that I will sneak into the kids backpacks with a treat of some sort on the first day of school...I'll show you those soon!! Until then, Have a great day and Thank You for visiting!!

Happy Tree Friends!

Wow...What a week! Unfortunately, Kolt had to be picked up from cancer camp because he got sick and was running a fever! =:O( I was babysitting a friend's kids and couldn't go so "Honey" had to take training off early to make the 3 1/2 hour drive up to get him! He seems to be doing better but we will have to wait and see...the bug that went around landed some of the kids in the hospital with pneumonia and I'm hoping we don't see that here!! On the other hand...he Loved the camping snack attack box!!! =:O)
Did anyone watch the meteor show? I caught a glimpse of the most magical meteor I have ever seen on Wednesday night/Thurs. morning....It was HUGE and fiery red and was just plain....Awesome and gave me serious goosebumps!! I hope if you were looking you saw one too!
I've been inspired to do a Halloween card.....kinda vintage and playful, different but I like it!

I used some paper from last season from Doodlebug and Making Memories. I don't know where the stamp is from...its on a set of three sayings. Maybe the $1 spot at Michael's??? I love the new Martha Stewart spiderweb punch but I really want to get my hands on the goop one!!! Way cool!!
All week long the puppies have been going crazy at random times during the day...running outside, running around the perimeter of the yard...barking...then back in the house again....I finally followed them around the yard wondering what had them so ruffled up....I think they found a new tree friend.....

Hope you have a Great Weekend! Thanks for visiting!!!

Camping Snack Attack!!!

I'm sending this card and little snack attack box to a super special kid, mine =:O) who is currently volunteering up at a cancer camp. For several years he was a camper there and now he is volunteering his time! I love that! The card is stamped with Camping Riley! I love Riley...hes so fun to color!!

Some of his favorites are in the box. I used some Basic Grey paper to wrap a couple of the candies to add a little somethin' to the look! I'm sure he wont even notice but it was fun just the same!
Okay....I'm off to the post office!! Have a great day!!

A Fun Challenge can always Motivate!!

Well I haven't done any challenges in a long while so I thought I would try one!! Here is my card using the sketch from the Friday Sketchers blog! I hope you like it!! Unfortunately, you can't really see the shimmer on the wings but I love how it looks in person!!

I often forget to do some of the challenges on these blogs. I shouldn't because it not only gives you ideas but it certainly helps motivate you (and the chance to win know I'm all for that!! =:O) If you haven't tried them yet... Do!!
Today, I made Chicken Dumpling Stew in the crock pot. I love cooking in the crock pot, the whole house smells yummy all day! I'm off to see if it turned out as good as it smells! Have a great night!!
