Happy Valentines Day!

 Hello, It's Valentines Day! My Grand Children spent the night last night. Got them off to school and thought this Is the perfect time to get this post In.

I have been busy In my Craft Room making things for today. If you seen my post the other day then you seen the Valentine Box that I helped my Grand Daughter make. She was so excited to take It this morning.

Then yesterday I posted a cute card made for my Son's girl friend. 
Today I have a few more things to share with you.

First I will show you the Card that I made for my Grand Daughter.







I knew that I wanted to add some glasses to her card because she Is my Nerd. So I used the Close to Home Stamp Set (School Years). I tried my best to get those lined up straight. Then stamped little hearts. The bottom part Is a Stampin Up Jumbo Wheel.
Also used the S.U. Scallop Punch, Stitched Circle Die, S.U. Scallop Boarder Punch and Sentiment Stamp Is just a cheap one from Michaels. I think It was only a dollar. Also a sparkly red ribbon.


For my Grandsons Card I had a hard time trying to come up with a card that I thought he would like. He Is getting a little older now. So I decided on making him a Pizza Card. Something he Loves.








Items used to make this Card-
Cricut Cartridges- Paper Dolls, Gypsy Wanderings,Simply Charmed
S.U. 1 Inch Circle Punch
S.U. Small Circle Punch
Martha Stewart Heart Punch
Cardstock- Riding Hood Red, Barely Banana,Crumb Cake, 
Whisper White and Black 
Sentiment made on Computer

Also wanted to share a Cute little necklace that I helped my Grand Daughter make. She brought all of the supplies. I did add a clear sealer over the paper after the picture was taken.



     We thought It turned out so Cute. Still can't get over that she picked out every thing her self. She Is so Crafty for a 10 year old.

Well that's It for me today. Hope you all have a nice Valentine's Day.

Your Stinkin Cute!!!

  I think this Is a first for me, two post in two days. I told you I had been busy.
Yesterday my son came over and ask me If I could make his girl friend a Valentines Card. At first I told him I didn't have time, He wouldn't stop asking. 
I ask him If he would like to make her one his self. He wasn't going for that and It's probably a good thing he didn't. I don't know If I would really trust him with my Craft stuff. (From one Crafter to another, You know what I mean right)?
 Anyway I finally gave In because I Love him and there was a few Challenges that I was wanting to enter. He decided that a little skunk would be fine. So that's what he got. Here Is the Card that I made.







 First I want to say I'm sorry for such a poor quality picture. I took this picture with my phone before he took It. 

This was my first time making this little Skunk and I think It's a cutie. Hoping that she will like It and that It will bring a smile.

Supplies Used-

Cartridges-
Card Base- Tags Bags Boxes and More
Skunk- Create a Critter
 Stamps- My Pink Stamper (Punny-licious)
S.U. Heart Punch
White Signo Pen

That's It for today. I seriously may be making another post tomorrow. Hope you can stop back by. 
Happy Day to You and God Bless!

Kitty Cat Valentine Box

  Hope you all are enjoying your weekend. I know I am. The Grandkids spent the night last night. So just enjoying some quiet time to my self tonight. Hubby has gone to bed and I made me a cup of coffee and thought I would get this post made.

I have been spending a lot of time In my craft room lately. One of the things I have been doing Is helping my grand daughter make a Valentine Box for her to take to school. I think I have helped her make her boxes every year that she has been In school. So this would make number four.

But I really don't mind. I actually enjoying spending the time with her and creating something together.

This year she said that she would like a Cat. So we found a box, bought some white felt and got started. 

So here Is the Kitty Cat Valentine box that we made.








The head and the tail was made from the Cricut Create a Critter Cartridge. Also used punches. For the feet I did add some yarn and used yarn for the whiskers. Really glad that we decided on using felt instead of cardstock. Looks a lot more like fur.

She Is so excited to take It to school Tuesday.  Well that's all for right now. Will be posting a few other things that I am working on In the next several days.

Enjoy your weekend and God Bless

Happy Birthday little Nerd!

 Happy Tuesday to you all. So glad you could stop by. Today Is a Happy Day. My little Grand Daughter turns ten. 

 I'm not sure how, but ten years have seemed to fly by so quickly. I can remember the moment that she was born like It was yesterday. 

Over the passed ten years we have had so much fun together. I call her my crafty side kick. She has told me several times that she Is so glad to have a Crafty Grandma. 

My Grand Daughter Is so pretty and Is also very smart. I also call her my little Nerd. 

One day we were looking at Greeting Farm Stamps and came across one called Cheeky Geeky. We knew right then that we had to have It. 

So for her 10th Birthday I had to make her Card using the stamp. So here Is the Card that I made her.







I have been wanting to try coloring Images for a good while now. So this was my first real try at It. The only colors I have right now are Brown tones. So I used those for the hair and skin. 
Since I don't have any other colors yet, I decided I would paper piece the rest. ( First time trying that to.)

I know that I need a lot more practice on coloring. But not to bad for my first try and I'm pretty sure that my little Geeky Nerd will love It. 

Here are the supplies that I used to make this Card

The Greeting Farm Stamp- Cheeky Geeky
Stampin Up Blendabilites for hair and skin
S.U Black Marker to color In glasses
S.U. Versa Marker Pin for glasses, eyes and lips
S.U. Clear Embossing Powder- for glasses,eyes and lips
S.U. Blender Pin - to add shading to the skirt and tie
S.U. Scallop Border Punch
Happy Birthday Embossing Folder
Martha Stewart Balloon Punch
Circle Stitch Die 
Yellow and White Bakers Twine- Seperated



Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day. 


Happy Birthday to my Sweet Beautiful Nerd !!!

Easy Guy Card

 Just a quick post to share with you the Card that I made for my son. I think guy cards are kind of hard.
My son occasionally gets together with some of his friends and Golfs. So I thought he might like this.








This Card Is pretty basic and was pretty simple to make. But I think Guy cards are better off like that. Not a lot of fuss. 

A few things that was used to make this card

S.U. Print Pattern Background Stamp 
Happy Birthday- S.U. Birthday Whimsy
S.U. Large Oval
S.U. Corner Punch
Golf Ball- S.U. Owl Punch
Small Circle Punch for hole
Flag- Free hand


Thanks for stopping by. Have a Nice Crafty Day.

Christmas Stars!

 Does anyone else think Christmas comes and goes to quickly? It's always a little sad for me when It's over. I'm not a fan of cold weather, but I do Love Christmas. 
I have cried several times this Christmas with It being my first year without my brother. It's also my first year without my Grandma Sophie. But so happy for them that they got to spend Christmas with Jesus and our family and friends that went home before them.

I didn't make any Christmas paper crafts this year. But I did get a few things made.
I did make some Crocheted Stars for my family. Made some In White and some In a light brown. I can't remember the name of It.  I like the rustic homemade look of these with the twine I added to hang them with.











These are Super easy to make. They are actually a flower shape. You get the star shape by sponging 3 parts Modge Podge to 1 part water. (Well that's how I did It). Squeeze out excess glue from star and pin It until dry. I added white glitter to the white ones. I let dry for 24 hours.

Here Is the link to the Crocheted Stars-   Crochet-Star-Ornaments


Also wanted to show you something I gave to my daughter for an extra little gift.



I cut the top out of a mach box and put it in the lid of a cute little Jar that I got from Hobby Lobby and put the matches In It. 
Isn't this a cute way of keeping your matches. My Daughter thought It was Great! Planning on making some more of these.

I guess this Is the end of my post. Thanks for stopping by. I'm wishing you all the best for the new year. God Bless!

A Day to Remember

   Hello Crafty friends, I wanted to share a Card with you all that I made my Mom for her Birthday.

But before I do I would like to tell you the about where I got the Inspiration for the Card. 

As some of you all know I lost my brother a few months ago. It Is still very hard for me to deal with. 

After he passed away my siblings and I only had ten days to get everything out of his apartment. It was a big job,but some how we got It done. 

He had a lot of antiques, so we had an Antique dealer come In. He was a good friend of my brothers. He bought a truck load of stuff. Was very thankful he bought so much. Because we didn't have long to get everything out. 
 But there was still several things that we thought might make more money If we sold them rather than having the dealer buy them. Any money that we were making was going to use for funeral expenses,  bills and for a tombstone.

So we packed it all up in totes and a lot of it my sister and I brought to my house. While we were starting to take totes out of her car, a Black and purple Butterfly kept going from the trunk, to inside the car and to my porch sitting on the totes. It kept doing it over and over. We felt as though It was our brother letting us know he was o.k. 

So later that night I was talking to my Mom on the phone and was telling her about the butterfly. She loved hearing the story. 

So the next day she called me and told me that she had went out side and a Black and Purple Butterfly wouldn't leave her alone. So we think It was him visiting her to.

So I wanted my Mom's Birthday Card to remind her of that special day and I also wanted it to be more than just a card. So I decided to make an Easel Card.



































I added a piece of light purple vellum so that she can see the butterfly even in the dark.

A lot of Love went Into making this card for my Mom. I wanted It to be extra special for her. I even made the card in my brothers favorite colors Orange and Purple.






Supplies that I used-

Stamp Sets-

Stampin Up- Wild about Flowers

 A Day to Remember- My Creative Time- Cherish this Moment

Stampin Up- Wood Grain Background Stamp

Cardstock-
Blackberry Bliss
Pumpkin Pie
Very Vanilla

Inks-
Pumpkin Pie,Old Olive, Mossy Meadow and Going Grey

The Butterfly Is from Stampin Up and was sent to me from a super sweet lady from Splitcoaststampers. 
Thank you so much Aracelli

I also added some purple Seam Binding.



I do want to apologize for such a long post and to many pictures. Thanks for taking the time to stop by.
