TGF Holiday Treat

I entered ALL 3 Challenges: SO PLEASE CONTINUE to scroll down so you don't Miss Anything :0)
This is my "Holiday Treat" Project for TGF Blog Hop. I made this cute little treat box. I did not use any Images for this. I think it is just cute by it self.. But I did use the Cheeky Xmas Sentiment ( I love the different style of these sentiment. It is not the ordinary sentiments. And what is Better you can use them for just about any projects and any occasions. Also used the Christmas tree which is also a part of the set. for my treat box  I use this Bazzill paper (very shimmery!!.I did not have much of treats on hand.. so this is filled with
M &M's;  but you can fill it with any favorite treat of yours or for the person that you are giving it too. I also made a little 3x3 card to go along with it. and added the "Christmas" tree stamp and popped it up with pop dots. the sentiment says" Celebrate".

Added some ribbons and a little snowflake for some embellishment. Used my Martha Stewart Snowflakes boarder punch for the front also.

Can not wait for this Hop.. I hope some of you have enjoyed my projects, I have been crafting for ONE year NOW  (can't believe that.. lol) But I still get a little "butterflies" when having to post/

Happy Crafting,

Another TGF Project- Santa Baby

Here is my 2nd Project for the TGF Blog Hop. This is for my Santa Baby.. and what a more perfect image than my sweet Anya Elf. This is a "Double Pocket" Card that I made and you can see I made a bookmark with Anya I Used my new Paper from Eskimo Kiss (??) and for the 2nd window you can place a gift card in their as a gift for someone.


TGF Blog Hop- Let It Snow

Here is my entry for the TGF Blog Hop. This is my "Snow Globe" using the Cheeky Xmas set. ( ( I just love her). Did not want to color her so I just print her with my Red Memento Ink. Used my Cricut" Doodle Charm to make the Snow Globe. I cut out the bottom layer with my White Glitter paper.. Can't you just see the Snow...and of course she has been  Nice/Naughty this year so I had to give her a gift :0) I added a Clear overlay for the glass and stamped the front with some snow flakes. It does stand on it's own where it opens if you wanted to add a little note.. For this one; it is going on my fireplace as a part of my Christmas decoration.

Will be back with 2 more projects

A Thankful little project

HAPPY Friday everyone I hope we are all enjoying the day.. it really can make your head spin to think about how fast the days are flying by.. I can't believe that Thanks given is just a few days a way.. I am still putting away all of our Halloween decorations and even candy :0)

We always do thanks given at my mom's house with the rest of the family soo we will be driving down to LA on Tuesday or Wednesday (still trying to decide) now I know like the rest of us our house will be filled with little ones (host of nieces and nephews.. Plus our own... and of course after the excitement of seeing each other wears of they get a little restless. So this year I deiced that I would make these little "activity books" for them to keep them busy. Now no way am I taken the credit for this. I got this idea from a Tutorial Digital Delights by Louby Loo. I also just happened to have the turkey and scarecrow from their Freebie Friday. so it just worked out perfect for me to create my little books. Tammy (her blog is HERE) was the DT that give this tutorial ( so I must give her the credit.) she did an Easter book and even gave the PDF of the activity sheets. I did mine with a "Thanks Given" theme I went on line and got the activities and just followed her directions and I LOVED IT..
This is an inside view of my book. a total of 4 pages with a front and back cover

I showed two books. the first one is more for my Challenge. Of course I colored it with Prisma and OMS I used my circle scallop Nesti and used a little distressing  ink around the edges I used the DP in another project but I used soo little of it that I wanted to show off more. and used my EK success Treading water punch to decorate the front cover.
This will be the ones that I am making, I know little ones arent' soo much in to the details of things,, LOL they just want to get inside and see what they get to color and play it. so I won't be adding any DP or charms or embellishment to it. But I do love this leaf stamp and so that is what I will be using.. I stamped with two different color and added some glitter to add SPARKLE .
So this is my weekend project. I have about 6 more to make and then I am going to bag some crayons ( like they do at Denny's LOL and give on to each of them with their activity book. I hope you like it. I know that my family will and hopefully we will get at least 15 min of quite time HAHHAHHA (hey we can hope can't we.

This is for the following Challenges:
Sew Many Cards- Turkey and Punch
Shirley2Girl- Thanks and Leaves
Creative Card Crew- Give thanks

So with the weather the way it has been has really started to put me in the "holiday" mood; right now I am slowly but surly getting my house with some decorations. It has also put me in the mood to get a jump start on my Christmas cards"... I am determined that I will get them out early this year and not wait until the last minute to get them mailed out..

A Day at the Patch

Ok; here is another fall project that I made.. I LOVE this Pumpkin.. It is NOT a card (at least I did not make it as one.. It is a layout that I purchased for ONLY .99 cents from the Cutting Cafe. If you check out the blog site you can see what her DT came up with , When I showed my DD she said she wanted to me to set it up as a part of our Fall decorations. and you know what??? I was thinking the same thing too :0) I wanted to add sweet little Pumpkin Emma which is a  digi that I purchased from All that Scraps. this goes with this week's Wednesday challenge which is to create TWO items. One is Autumn or Fall and the other is Christmas.

I printed this layout 2xs first on Kraft and the second on this Orange card stock, which I then ran Thur my Cuttle bug machine and sponged the edges with my chalk box orange ink.. I added some 3-d stickers and finished off with a little stitching with my white gell pen. the Ribbon is from Michael's and I popped up Emma with some pop dots.

also for the following challenges:
Crafty Emma- Forever Autumn
Digi Doodle Shop Best- Fall/ Autumn

Cupcake Wishes

Sorry for my Pictures.. it is really off centered. :0)

Hi everyone how was your Saturday.. mine was just Beautiful. Looking out my windows I see that our trees have turned a Beautiful Mustard Yellow and are starting to "Fall" and the Sun is still out but it is not Hot just nice!!! 
I want to share another "Cricut" card. MY daughter asked me to make a card for one of her "besti". Don't you just love being able to create for you or family a nice card or project instead of having to go to the store and buy something. I know that I do!!! I made a book mark a while back with the same DP and embellishment  (choose to not show because I don't want to seem like I'm back sliding with my new project. but I thought that along with the bookmark I would make her a card to go along with it.
For my card the Cricut Cart is the cricut lite "slumber party" for my cupcake. The balloons is actually a sticker from Recollections (Michael's)Card stock is Bazzill, DP is from MY Mind Eyes, sentiment PTI, blings/gems are my I-rock gems. and I used some stickles to add some sparkle to my cupcake.. I think that my DD's friend is going to Love it.

Twist and Twine

Hi everyone I had lost my mojo for the last few days.. NO matter what I did or try I just could not get my "craft groove" on :0) But because I had some quite time ( late last night when the house was sleeping  and really because I could not Sleep I was finally able  to do a little Twist and Twine to make this cute little Miss Anya Dressy from "The Greeting Farm". She is another one of my stamped images that I had colored from before. I thought that her colors where a "little to Bright" so I was not sure what I wanted to do with her. But then I came across a color challenge that just fit perfect.  But before I get to that part. she is for this week's FFF challenge which is "All Tied Up". I used both twine and my cute pink ribbon and twisted and tied them up.
I used this sketch from "Fussy and Fancy Friday #23

Dress for Autumn

Hi everyone It's Tuesday. I started my morning by going to Vote. That is something that is SUPER important to my DH and me, as soon as we took the kids to school we went to our "Polling Place". It is important for us to show our kids that it is our duty and rights to express our vote. After we came home and I made us some breakfast and got down to some "Craft Time". I want to show you my card featuring Miss Anya Dressy  from The Greeting Farm. I have really been getting in to coloring these sweet little ladies instead of just having them stored in a box. :0).
Their are soo many tutorials out there for "skin tones" with Copics, but I have yet to find many showing with my beloved Prismacolor pencils. Any how this card is for this week's Club Anya's Saturday Sketch
