Merry Christmas Wreath

My challenge card for today is 5.5" square and was made using the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cartridge. I cut the wreath at 4" using patterned cardstock from Authentique's Festive line. The wreath is adhered with foam adhesive for a little dimension. The sentiment is from Pink By Design's Christmas Wishes set.

Winter Thank You

Thank you for stopping by my blog today. In fact, "Thank Yous" are what most of the challenges are today. I incorporated Sweet Sketch Wed sketch to make this 5.5 square Thank You card. I layered coordinating patterned cardstock from a Christmas scrapbook package I purchased last year. The center green card is a punched tag that I stamped and heat embossed a beautiful snowflake from Iron Gate Stamps. The ribbon is hand dyed and can be purchased through my Etsy store.

Thanksgiving Vacation

A definite lesson learned. Always bring a grandparent (or two) when toting a toddler to Disney World. Lots of meltdowns from missed naps. Lots of missed activities from meltdowns (same applies for the two year old;-)

Now that the laundry is caught up and the kids are back in their school routine, I'm heading back to my craft room to relax:-) Here are some pics I thought I'd share:-)

Thanks A Latte

Happy Monday everyone! Today's Fantabulous challenge is all about being thankful. For my DT inspiration I used the Winter Frolic cart.

The patterned card stock from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found - Madison Avenue and Portobello Road . I distressed the solids with Tim Holtz's Vintage Photo Distress Ink to make the card more cohesive. I couldn't refrain from adding a little sparkle, though. Yes, there is a bit of Stickles:-)

Now head to your happy place and start creating! Thanks for stopping by. Have a creative day:-)

Follow Your Dreams...

This week's Die Cuttin' Divas challenge was to use a sketch. I used the George and Basic Shapes cart to cut an oval slightly bigger than the largest Spellbinder oval die that I used. The stamped images are from Iron Gate Stamps' Weathervane set. I used water color crayons to color in the sail boat. The patterned paper is from Fancy Pants Designs Beach Bum stack.

Lots of Leaves

Today begins a new Fantabulous Cricut Blog Challenge! Fall is in the air and the leaves are on the ground (at least here they are). This week's challenge at FCCB is to make a project using leaves:-) For my DT inspiration project I made an 8 x 8 two-page layout using the Cheerful Seasons cartridge from Creative Memories. I tied the leaves up with some of my Fall Foliage hand dyed ribbon, hemp, and a button. The patterned paper is from Stampin' Up. I did add a little Stickles to the leaves in the wheelbarrow for fun.

Make sure to enter your "Leaf" project before next Monday for a chance to win a wonderful prize! Thanks for stopping by! Have a creative day:-)

Surprises sweeten life

My card for today is for the Mojo Monday sketch challenge. The stamps I used come from Iron Gate Stamps' Fortune Cookie set. What I really like about this set is that besides offering a few pre-made "fortunes", it comes with the fortune outline so I can insert one of my own "fortunes" if I so desire. I used one of the stamped fortunes that comes with the set for this card.

I used some of the beautiful cardstock from Bo Bunny's Serenity set, as well as some from DCWV Tradewinds stack. The Chinese script came from an internet search which I printed onto some card stock and adhered with foam dots. I used gold metallic paper and cut the scalloped layer with my Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge.

New Use For A Journaling Tag

Happy Monday my crafting friends! My card today is inspired by Moxie Fab's Journaling Tag challenge. They want their readers to create a project using a journaling tag in a different way. I thought that was such a great idea! I have so many preprinted die cut sheets with journaling tags - A new use!!

I used three different tags from a die-cut sheet from Jillibean Soup. The patterned card stock is also from Jillibean Soup wrapped with hand dyed ribbon. I inked the edges and stacked them using foam adhesive. The stamped images come from Iron Gate Stamps Birdhouse set.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a creative day:-)
