Hello Fall

I have been working on some Fall cards for a couple upcoming craft shows.  For this one I used the For All Things stamp set.  Thanks for stopping by!

My Beautiful Shelby

This weekend was Homecoming  and I have a few photos of my beautiful daughter to share with you.  It has been crazy busy since Thursday with the parade and bonfire on Thursday, the football game on Friday, and the dance on Saturday.

Shelby went with a group of friends, she decided  that would be a lot more fun.

Shelby is already a tall girl but with heels she is taller than most of the boys in her class.

I know I am  bit prejudiced but I do think she is beautiful!  It is hard for me to believe she will be sixteen in a week,  love you Shelbs!

Happy Halloween

Aren't these little ghosts adorable!  These was an easy card, the black panel is actually a Project Life card so no stamping required.  I just cut the ghosts and the card layers out and glued it together..10 minutes start to finish!

Freaky Friends

I love these little coffee cups and since they were a huge hit last year at my Fall craft shows, I decided to make them again.  Here  and here are  links to last year's version.  I also wanted to to make something for the color challenge at Create with Connie and Mary for using Basic Black, Crushed Curry, and Tangerine Tango.  I just love the little monsters in the stamp set Freaky Friends.  Thanks for stopping by!

It's Your Day!

This is one of the choices from my last $5.00 Friday class.  I try to keep the cards very simple so that that all three cards can be made in less than an hour.  Thanks for stopping by!

Jack and Fat Cat

I have been playing with the Curvy Keepsake Box die and this is what I came up with.  Remember the Build a Bear dies from several years ago, well I keep everything cause you never know when you will need it.  The face and the witch's hat are from the Kooky Spooky die.

This one is cased from this one I saw on Pinterest but I wanted my eyes to look more like a black cat we used to have when the kids were small which they named Fat Cat.  Fat Cat had some Siamese in him and he looked mean but he was so loving and the kids still talk about him.  Thanks for stopping by!

Peace and Joy

I got a card similar to this one in a swap i participated in recently but it didn't have a name on it.  The only thing I changed was the embossing folder, I love the simplicity and elegance of this card.  Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Halloween

My Sadie loves to stamp with me which thrills me.  Most of the time I try to keep my eye on her while she is stamping because she isn't very careful with some of my tools and I have had to replace a few things after she used them.  I am  wondering what my silver ink pad looks like after this card!  She loves to use the Big Shot and I actually bought her one of her own.

I have been working on Halloween treats and since a lot of schools want you to give non-candy treats, I came up with this little treat holder for the party favor size Play Dough.  I used a lot of retired product for these but I don't think the kids will notice!

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh My Goodies!

The Fry Box die has to be my favorite die, it is so easy to put together and is perfect for giving a few goodies for any occasion.  These are going to my Technique stampers as a thank you.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Oh, Baby

This is one of the cards for $5.00 Friday.  Don't worry, if you didn't make all of the ones you wanted to last time, they will be available again this week as well.  And of course we have to have a baby boy version.  Thanks for stopping by!
