I got the supplies in today for my new snow globe card!! I love the little reindeer from Create a Critter and couldn't wait to try him out. I was disappointed to learn in order to emboss on clear anything it has to be transparency FILM. Which I do not have! UGH! But I made do with the puffy velvet and acetate for now. I think it turned out pretty cute!! I couldn't get a good photo so I just scanned it for now. It should be open a little.
Hope you all have a fantabulous week!

Not sure what I'm going to do with these yet. They could be ornaments or they could go on a card or they could be tags...oh the possibilities! I designed them in SCAL and cut them from chipboard. I then used Tim Holtz (I think I'm forming an addiction here...) distress crackle paint. I let that dry and then I put just a tad vintage photo distress ink over them. I then used my Peachy Keen snowmen face stamps to make the face. The first snowman I made I used momento ink to stamp the face. NIGHTMARE! It blurred all over. I then used Staz-On and while it didn't stamp as dark as I wish it would of I was able to go over it with a black pen. I colored the nose in with my orange Zig marker. Distress inked the ribbons and that's pretty much it. I think they turned out very cute!!
Again if anyone would want the files in SCAL just let me know!
Hope you all have a great week!!

When I seen this pattern I knew exactly why I HAD to have it!! One morning I woke up and something smelled so good! I didn't think much of it and proceeded to get out of bed and head to the bathroom. On the way I have to pass Tobias' bed. His bed looked odd...the cherry wood was gray! I then realized my baby boy resembled something close to Casper. It all started adding up...he was able to reach the baby powder off his dresser and had a grand time decorating his bed and himself...I didn't think we'd EVER be done cleaning that up! Silly boy! Thank God he was breathing OK, I was worried about his having inhaled all that!!
The pattern is from LSHD except the stocking is from Christmas Cheer, the coal I made in SCAL and the file folder and font I made in SCAL.
Hope you all have great weekend!!

Hope you all had a fantabulous Thanksgiving! Ours was quiet and yummy!
I found a video on you tube showing how to make this very cute card. While I wait for the right supplies to come in I decided to try with what I already had. It's far from perfect but it's so cute and clever!! I did make a cut file for the globe in SCAL if anyone wants, just let me know and I'll be happy to share.
I will have a layout to share tomorrow I hope. Just waiting to get my pictures printed! (hope Santa brings me a new printer!)
Have a great weekend!!

I ordered my first set of Tim Holtz stamps. I was intimidated by them for a long while. I'm not crazy about this card by any means but I do so love that I made this card out of all white cardstock to start with!!! Inking is addictive! I embossed the sheet music to give it shine and inked my ribbon to try and make it look old. Not bad for a first attempt but I definitely won't be giving it to anyone!!
Hope you all have a great Thanksgiving!!

I made this card for my nieces and nephews. The turkey is a pattern from LSHD. Love her work. I had to put this together real fast as it takes 3 days to get to them and for some reason I totally lost track of time. So when I realized it was now or never I had to get right to work! I think it turned out OK for a hurry!
Hope you all have a great week and a great Thanksgiving!! We are staying home this year and having a big dinner, movies, just good old fashioned family time. Surgery is 2 weeks away and I'm trying so hard to keep it together. Hoping Thursday we can just enjoy the day!

I made these for some of my nieces and nephews. I do not like the reindeer one and don't think I'll use it. It just isn't cute! I do love the Santa one tho! I used patterns from myscrapchick.com and right now they are having a 65% off sale!! WOoHoO!!
Hope you all have a fantabulous Friday!!

Very hard to believe my baby is 16!! I wanted his card to match his present and this was the only beagle cut file I could find, so he got a Christmas birthday card. I tried to make Mavis. I think it turned out cute. The red ribbon on it is the ribbon we tied on Mavis the day she came home.
I got the cut file from Dana's Designs.
She has some cute stuff so be sure and check it out!!
Hope you all are having a great weekend. We all had the stomach flu!! YUCK!!

I am working on some things but nothing ever gets finished. There is way too much going on at the moment. Tobias has to have surgery to have an enlarged lymph node removed, Tyler got a beagle puppy for his birthday, Brent broke some ribs, ...I could go on..
In the meantime I wanted to share a precious picture of Tyler and Miss Mavis. He got Mavis as a surprise 16th birthday present. He was floored. I think it was love at first sight tho...he's laughed a zillion times over this silly clumsy puppy and it's so very good to hear.
Hope you all have a great week and I hope to have something posted soon.
