Owl Be Home For Christmas Blog Hop!

                                                                              

Hi, So glad that you could make it to the Owl Be Home For Christmas Blog Hop! I have been looking forward to this Hop because I Love Love Love Christmas and I Love Owls.  If you get lost along the way just start at the beginning at our Hostess heather . You should have came from An'Jenic  .    I have been so busy with trying to get ready for Christmas,Work and Grand Kids and on top of that I have been really sick with Bronchitis. But I am a lot better than what I was. With being sick and Super Busy I did manage to make a little Christmas Owl Project.

For my Christmas Owl Project I made a Ornament for my Tree (Well I actually made one for my Daughter to because her Tree and all of her Ornaments were destroyed last year. (She Loved It!)

I cut the Ornament from the Cricut Cartridge Joys of the Season. After cutting the first Ornament for the base. I then added Bashful Blue Cardstock. Ripped a piece of white cardstock to look like snow. On a piece of Water color Cardstock I Stamped the Owl from Lawn Fawn Winter Owl Stamp Set in Versa Mark,then Heat Embossed with Black Embossing powder. Then colored in using the Aqua Painter and Inks from Stampin Up. Stamped the Owl Image again on the Green Plaid Paper and cut out the scarf and adhered to Owl Image.  Then added another layer of Ornament. Then added acetate that I had stamped with Snowflakes and let dry. Then added the last layer of the Ornament.  And then added some Christmas Twine. I think it turned out Super Cute and love that I now have an Owl Ornament for my Tree. Hope you all like it to.

Invite and Winner!

Hi, So glad you could stop by my Blog today. I still can't get over this Bronchitis. I'm getting better slowly. I want to Thank all of you that hopped along on the Christmas Blog Hop. You left me such nice comments and I want to Thank the ones that are now following me. The Christmas Blog Hop was so much fun. I Loved everyone's creations.

I am so sorry for not announcing the winner of my little Giveaway when I said that I would. . I have just been so Heart broken over the Horrific tragedy in Newtown Connecticut! . I cry all of the time and I just can't Imagine what the families of the victims are going through! My little Grand Children are in 1st Grade and Kindergarten and just can't Imagine them going through something like that. I have to hold back tears every time I see them. They have been getting lots of extra hugs and kisses from me. My thoughts and Prayers go out to all of the Families that lost their loved ones and Pray that God gives them the strength to get through the difficult days ahead.  

I did want to share a picture of some Ornaments that I helped my Grand Children make.
I painted their hands with Chocolate Brown Paint (They Loved that part)! and had them press them on Creamy Caramel Card stock. Cut them out and then used my Your Story Machine to Laminate them and then cut them out. Then they got to glue on the eyes and noses and Scarlett wanted a little bow on hers.  I thought they turned out cute. They surprised their Mommy with them yesterday.

I think these are the best kind of Ornaments! The ones you Cherish forever!





I do think I'm going to have to have them make some more, so I can have some for my tree.

I also want to Invite all of you to the (Owl be home for Christmas Blog Hop) that I'm going to be in. It's going to be a two day hop and will be December 22 and 23rd. Hope you all can come by and see all of the Christmas Owl Projects. 

 Now I can Announce the Winner of my Blog Candy. I had Random Dot Org pick the winner.


The Winner was # 16  Kdndd
Kdndd said - Very Elegant Card and cute Snowmen Ornaments !

Kdndd please e-mail me at cindymarshall63 at hotmail dot com and I will get your Twine out to you!

Christmas Blog Hop!!!

                                                                             

Hi, So glad that you could make it to the Christmas Blog Hop! I have been looking forward to this hop.I Love Christmas and love seeing Handmade Christmas Projects.  If you just happened to stop by my blog and would like to hop along just go to the beginning at Ashley's  blog.  If you just came from Beth. Then you are on the right track.

I have made a few projects.Was planning on making a few more.But I have been pretty sick for the past month with Broncitas. Just now starting to feel a little better.

So for my first Project that I want to share with you is a Christmas Card that I made.

The Stamp Set that I used is called Tree Trimmings from Stampin Up. I cut out the center Ornament and popped it up. I also used a little Dazzling Diamonds on the middle Ornament and added a few pearls.

Card Base-Crumb Cake(Kraft)
Other Cardstock and Ink - Riding Hood Red, Old Olive, Purple and Whisper White.



                                                                               
                                                                           

For my second Project. I made a few SnowMen Ornaments. My Daughter and Grand Childrens Tree and Ornaments were all destroyed last year. So I wanted to make her a few things to put on their Tree.
These Ornaments were Super Simple to make.
I cut out the circles with my Martha Stewart Circle Cutter(Love that thing)! Used a pencil to mark where I wanted the eyes and Mouth and used my Cropadile to punch them out. Hand drew the noses. Cut them out and sponged them and added the Yarn. I know my Grand Kids will really like these.


  


Hope you liked my Projects and I have a little Giveaway, I am giving away some Christmas Twine. So for a chance to win. Just leave a comment and be a follower. I will choose a winner through random dot org and announce it on December 14th. So come back on that day and see if you are the winner.

Tiffany's Baby Shower and Mom's Birthday!

Hi,Thanks for stopping by my blog today. On this passed Saturday November 10th. I went to my Niece Tiffany's Baby Shower and we also had my Mom's Birthday Party at the same time.
Wanted to Share some pictures of the Party.
First I want to show you the Baby Owl Frame that I made for Tiffany. I was planning on putting the Babies name at the top, but she's still deciding on a name. (I 'm hoping that she picks the name that I told her).  I think I cut the Owl from the Cindy Loo Cartridge. Can't remember where I got the Owl Paper. I also added a layer of Modge Podge to help protect it.   She really Loved It! I knew she would, She's Owl Crazy like I am.





                                                                            

Also wanted to Show you the little Owl Cake that my Niece Amy made for the Party.The bottom of the Cake was to look like a Hat Box. Isn't it ADORABLE!!!





I also wanted to share a Picture of my Mom  blowing out the Candle on her Pretty Cake, also made by my Niece Amy!  (You did an Awesome Job on the Cake's Amy) I Love Owls and you know when my Birthday is!!!!




I also thought I would Share a picture of my Daughter Jade and Grand Daughter Scarlett enjoying the Parties.

So I've got a little time to my self today, so I thought I'd better get it posted.  I wanted to Share a picture of the Card that I made for my Sister Debbie for her Birthday! I had a good time making this Card because it was my first time making a Rosette. They are so Fun and easy to make!!!!!  Although I didn't have any 12 inch yellow Cardstock so I just Adhered two pieces of 6 inch Cardstocks together.

Ran the Close to Cocoa Cardstock through the Cuttlebug using the Tim Holtz Woodgrain Folder and then rolled my Brayer over it with Chocolate Chip Ink.

Made the ends of the Penants by using the Corner of a Square Punch.

Used my Martha Stewart Score Board to make the Sun Flower and to make the Scallop I used the Stampin Up Border Scallop Punch, Sponged the Edges in Summer Sun

The Center of the Flower was made by my Stampin Up Circle Puch, Used the Sizzex Spot Folder and rubbed my Chocolate Chip Ink Pad over it and Sponged the Edge with Chocolate Chip.

The Birthday Wishes Stamp is from Stampin Up and I placed a little Green Gem for the dot of the I.

Hi and Thanks for stopping by my Blog today. I want to Thank Everyone so much for visiting my Blog this past weekend for the Have an Owlsome Fall Y'All Blog Hop! I received so many wonderful Comments and got several more Followers! I now have over 200.  When I started my blog a little over a year ago, I never dreamed that I would ever even have a few followers let alone over 200. Thank You all so much!
Before I get to the Winner of my Blog Candy, I want to Share a Card that I just made. Not going to mention who the Card is for, because I just mailed it out today and she hasn't received it yet. I made a Banana Shaped Card using my New Wild Card 2 Cartridge. I used Chocolate Chip Cardstock for the Base and then Yellow Cardstock for the front. I sponged it with Close to Cocoa Ink and Used the Stampin Up Stamp Set Itty Bitty Background for the spots on the Banana's. After I took this picture I decided to stamp Thanks A Bunch on the front of the Card. Sorry I didn't have a picture of that. It did make it a lot cuter. I also added some Red and White Twine to the top.  Now I think those Banana's look just about good enough to eat. Would Love to know what you think!

So I decided to make a Fall Owl Tree. I got two rectangle pieces of Styro Foam.Glued them together and glued them to a Cardboard base and glued sheets of moss to the Styro Foam. Drew a Tree on Cardboard. Cut it out with an Exacto Knife. Added Paper.Cut out again. The Owls that I made are from the Cricut Cartridges- Hoot n Holler,Paisley and Gypsy Wanderings. The Leaves were made with the Disney Mickey and Friends Cartridge and I stamped them using the Itty Bitty Backgrounds Stamp Set from Stampin Up. The Acorns were made with the Create a Critter Cartridge and Embossed the tops with the Swiss Dots Folder. The Fence was made with the Mini Monsters Cartridge and I Embossed them with the Tim Holtz Wood Grain Folder. The Pumpkins were made with the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge. Used the Dot,Dot, Dot Stamp from Stampin Up on the tall Pumpkins. The Sign was cut from the Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge and Stamped with the Weathered Background Stamp from Stampin Up. The Squirrel was cut from the Cindy Loo Cartridge.




























Oh, Isn't my Fall Owl Tree just to Cute!!!! I LOVE IT! Everyone that has came to visit me wants to take it home with them. I'm really happy with how it turned out. Hope that wasn't to many pictures and I Hope that you like It to.        

And what would a Blog Hop be without a Giveaway! For my Giveaway I wanted to give something that was for Fall and Owls. So when I seen this, I knew it was perfect! It's a Leaf Candle Holder with a Sweet little Hooty Owl sitting on it. Isn't it Cute! Of Course I bought my self one to and a couple of more for my Sister and Daughter.


                                                                                                                                                                           For a chance to win this Cute Candle Holder, Become a Follower of mine and leave a Comment on this Post.

Happy 99th Birthday to my Mamaw Sophie!

What a wonderful Day it is!!!  Today my Sweet Grandmother turns 99. She is such a blessing in my life. Would like to share the Card that I made for her. Used Bazzill (Bling) Cardstock,  WhisperWhite, Old Olive and Green Galore Cardstock.The flowers are made out of Vellum and I think were cute using the  Sugar and Spice Cartridge. I used the Versa Mark Pen on the flower around the edges and to make tiny dots and Embossed it with White Embossing Powder. I also added White Pearls to the Flowers. The leaves are from the Stampin Up leaves Emboslitt  Die and also from the Martha Stewart Fern leaf Punch.   Used the  Scroll Work Embossing Folder for the Pink Cardstock. The Sentiment was from the Stampin Up Stamp Set called Best Yet. I stamped it in Versa Mark and Embossed it to. Used the Stampin Up Scallop Oval Punch and the Large Oval Punch. I used White Lace Ribbon to. She Loves Flowers, So I think she will Love her Card.  My family is having her a Surprise Birthday Party this Sunday. But I have to work. I'm really upset that I'm not going to be there. Before I go see my Grandmother, I am going to go to the School and have lunch with my little Grand Daughter Scarlett. She is in Kindergarten and it is Grandparents week at School. She is so Excited that I'm coming. Yesterday  I went and ate lunch with my little Grandson Walker.

Help Angela reach her Goal!

Hi All my Crafty Friends! Hope you all are doing good today. Wanted to tell you that Angela from Creative Creations with Angela is having a giveaway! She is trying to reach her goal of 75 followers. She is the Sweetest and is giving away a $50.00 Gift Card to Michaels. How Exciting is that! I Love living in a small town but one of the draw backs is that I live about 50 miles away from the nearest Michaels and don't get to go very often. So I would be So Excited to win. If you would like to have the chance to win and to help Angela reach her goal,  head on over to Angela's Blog  http://wwwcreativecreationsbyangela.blogspot.com/ . Thanks for stopping by my Blog. Working on some Crafty projects. Hope to post pictures of them soon. Have a Great Creative Day! :0)

New Card to Share!

Hi, Just thought I'd share a Card with you that I just made for a Friends Birthday! I used a Retired Stamp Set  from Stampin Up called Baraque Motifs. I just bought this set off of someone from The Scrap Yard. It's a place on Facebook that people can Sale or Buy Crafty things. I had always wanted to get this Stamp Set. But always thought it was to Expensive. So when I seen it for $8.00 and that was including Shipping. I knew that I had to get it. The Cardstock that I used was Lavender Lace, Certainly Celery, Summer Sun and Whisper White. Inks- Lavender Lace and Certainly Celery.The Butterflies are from Stampin Up, called Embosslits Beautiful Wings Die. Added three little Green Gems to the Largest Butterfly. The Top Note Die is from Stampin Up. Used Stampin Up Scallop Oval Punch and Large Oval Punch. The Birthday Wishes Stamp is from a Stampin Up Set called Sencere Salutations. Also added a little Dazzling Diamonds to the flowers. I think it turned out Pretty. My favorite colors are Purple and Green.  I am going to enter this Card into a Challenge over at http://www.thepapergirlschallenge.blogspot.com/  The Challenge is to make  something for a Birthday. I just recently found this Blog and I'm excited to be a part of the challenge. The deadline is August 18th. Just in case you would like to make something. I am also going to enter this into another Challenge Blog that I just found over at http://www.comeandgetitchallenges.blogspot.com  On this Challenge you are to make an Adult Birthday Card.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Hello and Happy 4th of July to you! I can't get over that it is already July! Before we know it, It will be Christmas. It is so Hot here. I wouldn't mind a little snow today. Thought I would share a couple of Bookmarks that I made for two of my Nieces. They were both born on the 4th of July. No they are not twins. And both of their names start with A. I Cut the Book Marks from the Sweet treats Cartridge and the A was cut from the Storybook Cartridge. I usually make them a Card, but thought they would get more use out of Bookmarks and they were so easy to make. Now I will have to make some more for all of my other Nieces.

Happy Birthday Angie and Amanda!

  Also wanted to share a photo of the hair Barrette that I made for my little Grand Daughter Scarlett  to wear today for the 4th of July. Sorry the picture is a little Blurry. She wouldn't stop moving for me to take a clearer  picture. (It's really hard for 5 year old's to hold still). The Roses are made from 3 inch squares of felt. It was my first time trying to make felt flowers. So there not perfect. But she really likes it. That's all that counts! Glad you stopped by my blog. Hope you all have a safe and happy 4th of July!

Watermelon Card!

Hi all, Hoping your having a wonderful Day! Wanted to Share a Card that I just made for my Sister Tammy's Birthday. I can't get over how easy this Card was to make. I cut the Circles out from the Storybook Cartridge,The Scallop I think was from from Gypsy Wanderings, I had looked at several different Scallop's. But I think that is the one I choose. and the Watermelon Seeds were cut from The Child's Year Cartridge. I added a Black Button and some Hemp Twine and Sponged around the outside edge with S.U. Close to Cocoa Ink. Super Easy! My Favorite Way! The Stamps that I used for the Inside reads " Hope you have a Sweet Celebration" and Happy Birthday! I think it turned out Cute!  I am entering this Card in the My Craft Spot  Hot Summer Colors Challenge and I am also entering this in the Challenge me Monday Challenge over at fantabulouscricut  The Challenge Is BBQ Time. Watermelon is a must have at any BBQ. Thanks for stopping by my Blog. If you leave a comment please leave your blog address,so that I can come visit you. Have a Super Day!  Cindy :0)

Two Father's Day Cards and Winner of my Blog Candy!!!

Hi,and Thanks for stopping by my Blog today! It is so Hot outside today here in Indiana. Going to be 94 degrees. Way to hot for me. So my plans for today are to make some Sweet Tea and make some Cards. First thing that I want to share with you today is a Couple of Father's Day Cards.

The First Card is the one that I made for my Dad. I got this plaid paper at Michaels. As soon as I seen it I thought of my Dad. He is always wearing these kind of Shirts. Had a terrible time with my White Pen. Just couldn't seem to get the Ink out very good.( If anyone has any tips on to get the Ink out better, I would sure love to know.)  That is an old Gift Card that I stuck in there,just to take the picture. I actually ended up putting Cash in it.



  
This Father's Day Card was made by my Grand Children (with my help) to give to there Papaw. They laughed while making it. Because Papaw has a Mustache to. The letters are from the Mickey Font Cartridge and we used the Seeing Spots Embossing Folder. I hand drew the Mustache and Cut it out. We had a lot of Fun making this Card.


     
Hope you enjoyed seeing the Cards ,I also wanted to Thank Everyone that visited my Blog on the Cricut in our Names Blog Hop. I had a really Fun time and everyone left wonderful Comments. I got several new Followers. Thanks so much, I really appreciate it.

And now It's time to Announce the Winner of my Blog Candy! The Paper Pack called (Sweet Summer)!
