Birthday Sundaes Challenge #37

Good Sunday morning! Hope everyone has had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend and that your travels have been safe. Well today is another challenge atBirthday Sundaes. This week's challenge is to create a birthday card with a sentiment. I made my card using all Stampin' Up products except for the brads, which are from Hot Off the Press. The cupcake is actually a punch then paper pieced. I then added some Stickles. The label is a Sizzix tag I cut with my Big Shot, which was part of my starter kit. I hope you like the card and that it inspires you to play along with us. Please be sure to stop by the other designers and see what they have created. And as always, thanks for stopping by!

Challenge #40 at CTO

Good morning and welcome to another challenge at CTO. This week's challenge is to make a project for Thanksgiving and you must include a button. I've really been trying to clean out my scraps lately and all of the card except the pattern paper was scraps. I used a new set of Nestablilities for the leaves and I touched them up with some Stampin' Up inks. The border punch is also from Stampin' Up and the sentiment stamp is from Pink By Design. Be sure to stop by my fellow DT members and see what they've created, and if you feel creative, please show us what you come up with. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you and yours have a great Thanksgiving!

No Crafting Time = Sad Sissy!!!

Hello everyone! I am so sorry that I haven't been posting much lately. So much life has been getting in the way!! Busy at with family, busy with work, busy getting ready for my first workshop...the list goes on!! So that makes for very little "me" time. I've had enough time to lurk on blogs and make comments, but no real crafting time. :( I am on vacation this week, so hopefully there will be some crafting time along with all the family time and Thanksgiving. Thank you so much for understanding, and I will be back!!! I promise!! :)

Birthday Sundaes Challenge #35

Good Sunday morning! It's time for another challenge at Birthday Sundaes. This week's challenge is to make a birthday card and you must include a tree. Since it's been awhile since I've used my Cricut, I thought this would be a good time to use it. I used my Straight from the Nest cartridge for the tree. All the papers and cardstock were scraps from my stash, as well as the ribbon. The stamps are a combination of stamps from My Pink Stamper. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and my deckle scissors on the tag and some Stampin' Up White Frost Shimmer paint on the mint green paper and of course my white Zig marker for doodling. Thanks you so much for stopping by and be sure to check out my fellow DT members to see what they've created and then show us what you can create!

Celebrate the Occasion Challenge #38

Good morning and welcome to another challenge at CTO. This week's challenge is to celebrate Veterans Day. This is a special day for me, not only to commemorate veterans, but it is the third anniversary of my dad's passing. It was so appropriate for him to pass on Veterans Day since he was the most patriotic man I know. I created this layout in his memory. He was so proud to be an American and showed it in everything he did, and he wasn't afraid to stand up to any challenge. He joined the Merchant Marines at 16 during WWII and then served in the Korean War during the 50's, which was when this picture was taken. Such a handsome man!! He could give John Wayne and Clark Gable a run for their money, that's for sure!! lol I hope that you visit my fellow DT members and see what they created and then join us and show your creation celebrating Veterans Day. Also, please be sure to thank a vet, past or present, because if not for them we wouldn't be living our freedom today!! Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your week! Supply List: Stand and Salute Cricut Cartridge Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge Cardstock Recollection and Bazzil Ribbon from my stash Brads from We R Memory Keepers Stickles Smooch Spray Scrappy Moms and Pink By Design stamps
