This Little Piggy says Thanks!

  Hello, Glad you could stop by. Wanted to share with you my excitement.  Lynda Falconer (Crafter Inspired)  had a giveaway on her facebook page because she had hit 2000 subscribers and I was the winner. Who Hoooooo!

I was so excited and shocked. I won the new Adorable stamp set from Stampin Up called This Little Piggy. Oh It's so Cute!!! She also sent me a few foil snowflakes and a beautiful Christmas Card and envelope. 

 Here Is what she sent me.



How sweet Is she!!! Being that Lynda was so sweet and generous, I just had to make her a thank you card using the cute set.

So here Is the card that I made her.







Isn't that little piggy so cute! I had so much fun making this. I actually made two just a like. 

Here are the things I used to make It-

This little piggy stamp set

Cardstock- Pink, Whisper White and Kraft 

Patterned paper from paper pack called Sweet Summer

Stitched Circle Dies

Embossing Folder- Seeing Spots

Square punch for banner

I used tiny strips of kraft card stock to stick behind the circle. Tried to make It look like hay.

Painted Harvest Birthday Card!

 Hello, Thanks for stopping by. Spent the day with my husband and sister. Did a little shopping. Went In Hobby Lobby. They had 80% off of their Halloween decorations. That was so fun! 
Also went to the dollar store. Those little things for a dollar add up real quick. Had a good lunch at Olive Garden. Then ended up going to the Wal-Mart. I have a really bad back and knee. I seriously didn't think I was going to make It. I was never so glad to get home and rest.

 Well enough about my day, I want to Share a Card that I made for my Daughter. My little girl Is now 33. It actually doesn't seem that long ago that I was 33. Time goes by to way to fast. 

For the card that I made her, I used the new stamp set from Stampin Up called Painted Harvest. LOVE- LOVE-LOVE this Stamp Set. 
As soon as I seen It, I knew I had to have It.





She LOVED It! I knew she would. She always places her Birthday Cards from me on her large window ledge. She has 5 sitting there now. I'm already thinking what kind I will make her next year.

Here Is a list of things I used to make the card.

Stamp Sets-
Painted Harvest, Well Scripted and Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Cardstock- Crumb Cake, Summer Sun, Very Vanilla
Ink- Cajun Craze, Summer Sun, Early Expresso, Old Olive
Ribbon and Siquins

Loved the way It turned out. Looking forward to playing with different color combinations with the flowers.

That's It for me. I'm exhausted and In pain, going to go make me a cup of coffee and nothing else.  Thanks for stopping by. 




My Beautiful Daughter Jade!

Halloween Test Tube Treat Holders and Tags

 Hello, Thanks for stopping by. Was hoping to get this post In yesterday on Halloween, but It just didn't happen. I never know how many Trick or Treater's I will get. On average around 16. This year I only got 8. I was kind of disappointed. ( I can predict that I will be eating some little chocolate candy bars later today). 

My Grand Children, this year was a Black Cat and some scary looking guy, I think It was Jason. Not really Into the scary movies. But Walker thought it was fun and Scarlett looked so cute In her Black kitty outfit.

I made them some treat bags,with some goodies In It. Also had toothbrush and toothpaste In It. Made a cute little tag that say's BRUSH YOUR FANGS. So Cute! The Fangs stamp is from Stampin Up. Also I made them little treat holders and put the test tubes In them from Stampin Up and filled them with a little candy.

Here are a few pictures I took before they got here.





 Also used the new Cat Punch from Stampin Up. Stamped Oct 31st on stitched circles. Used Halloween Twine around one cats neck.
Rounded the corners of the treat box with the envelope punch board.

Those were so simple and fun to make. It uses a piece of 4x11 cardstock. There Is a video on youtube that I followed to make these. 
If you would like to try making some, there are several video's of them. Just type in Test Tube Treat Holders.  












Thought those little tags were so Cute. Colored them with Stampin Up Markers. Added a little red to the pointed teeth. Tied them with Bakers Twine.


I forgot to get a picture of Walker and Scarlett (What was I thinking) but my daughter took one, so thought I would share a photo of them.






Walker has got the scary look down for sure and that's the cuttest Black Kitty I have ever seen. They are getting so big. 

Now that Halloween Is over, let the Christmas Music begin!!!!! 
Honestly I have already been listening to It. (LOVE IT)!!!


Thanks for stopping by and hope you stop by again. Happy Day to you and God Bless.

Card for Debbie

  Hi and thanks for stopping by. Thought I would post a picture of the Card that I made for my Sisters birthday. She Is the big 60. Since her birthday Is In the fall and she loves flowers. I knew her card had to have a flower on It. 








Kind of not happy with the way it turned out, because I wasn't really able to blend the colors together on the flowers. My blender pen Is completely dry. So not the greatest but I still think she will like It.

The stamp set that I used is by Multi Crafts called Floral Fantasy. Cut the oval out on my Cricut. The For You Is from the Stampin Up  Stamp Set called Chalk Talk. Used a circle punch to punch It out.
Also used the Brick Embossing Folder. 
Cardstock  used- Pumpkin Pie and Whisper White
Inks Used- Summer Sun, Pumpkin Pie, More Mustard and Old Olive.
Love the twine ribbon that I used. called Boho Modern. Gives the card a little rustic feel.

My Sister's Birthday Party Is later today. Hoping she likes It. I'm sure we will have a great time. We all are crazy when we get together. But first I have to go to Physical Therapy on my back. I really don't want to go. Oh well at least I have something fun to look forward to afterwards.
 Thanks for stopping by. Come back again. Hoping you have a good day and God Bless!

Sasquatch has been spotted!

 Hey Crafty Friends, Glad you could stop by. Yesterday was my little Sisters birthday. The big "50". 

When trying to think of a card to make her. I laughed at the thought of making a Sasquatch Card. Because I call her that sometimes because she Is a lot taller than me. Last year I put Sasquatch on her Christmas Tag and she knew who it was from. Ha!

Anyway here Is the Card that I made her. I just printed it of of the computer. So It was super easy. The Inside says; YOU CAN COME OUT OF HIDING IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY! 







Ha! Every time I looked at it I laughed. So Funny!


We had a surprise Birthday Party for her last night. The look on her face was priceless. She knew It was from me as soon as she seen It. She loved It and everyone got a big kick out of it. 

Well that's It for me today. Wanting to go to my Craft Room but need to clean up the kitchen first. Will just have to wait until later to play.

Happy Day to you and may God bless you and keep you safe.

Card for a Dear Friend

 Hi Crafter's, So glad you could stop by. The weather Is a lot cooler. Starting to feel like fall. (I LOVE IT!!!) The hot weather Is behind us and I couldn't be happier. 

A dear friend of mine just turned 80 and I wanted to share with you all the card that I made her. I found out a day before they were having a party, so I made this card in record time. I don't like to be in a rush when making a card but somehow come up with something. 











Used the Stampin Up Stamp Set called Wild about Flowers.  I am so glad that I bought this set. 

Cut out a stitch circle die and then sponged a little Bashful Blue Ink for the sky, Summer Sun for the sun and a little Old Olive for the grass. The flowers are in Positively Pink and Old Olive. Added the circle to a Doily from Stampin Up. 

The Cardstock Is Positively Pink and Whisper White. Embossed the white cardstock and added some ribbon.

Well that's It for me today. Going to go spend the night with my Mamma tonight. Happy Day to you all.
