So I'm not able to visit her, so I wanted to make her a card to let her know that I am thinking of her.

Cricut Font and Basic Shapes Cartridge 
Cardstock- Soft Sky, YoYo Yellow, Whisper White

3x3 Gift Card Set

  Today I have something else to share with you that I had made for my Niece for her Bridal Shower.
 It's a little 3x3 Gift Card Set.Thought It would be nice for her to have some little Cards handy for when she moves to New Mexico.

Made the Cards and Card Holder out of Crumb Cake Cardstock. I used Whisper White Card Stock and for the outside of the box and for the fronts of the Cards.

For the out side of the box and two of the cards I used S.U. Elements of Style Stamp Set.

For the the other two sets of Cards I used Avant Garden from Stampin Up and Beloved Bouquet from Close to my Heart.

Other Stamps used- Sincere Salutations and Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Inks- Positively Pink, Pretty In Pink,Close to Cocoa and Old Olive.

Also used S.U. Oval and Scalloped Oval Punches,Twine and some white ribbon.

She really liked these and said that they would come In handy.

Love how fast and easy these cards were to make. I found how to make the box on youtube but can not remember who made it.

Glad I got this post finished and posted,suppose to storm most of the day tomorrow. 
Hope you liked the little gift card set. I will be posting again fairly soon, hope you can stop back by. 
Happy Day to you all.

Tiny Milk Carton Box

 Hello, Glad you could stop by. On my last post I had made a Card for my Niece's Bridal Shower. So today I thought I would share a little gift box that I had made to put one of her gifts In.

This tiny box Is so easy to make. It only takes a 4 1/8 x 6" piece of Cardstock. 

You can find this box on youtube called Tiny Milk Carton Chocolate Egg Boxes.made by PootlesPapercraft.  Love to watch her video's.

Elements Of Style from Stampin Up Is the Stamp Set I used  and I used my new Stamp Perfect Stamp positioner from Hampton Art. 

I am Loving this thing. I used a gift card and coupon and only paid a little over $6.00. Great deal! 

My Niece McKinley will be getting married in about a month. Her future husband Is In the Air Force and will be moving to New Mexico. That's pretty far from Indiana. 

Since I'm her (crazy) Aunt and have played several pranks on her. I made her a magnet with a picture of me to take with her. So when she see's It, It will be bring a smile.

That Is what I put In the tiny Box.  I also added a little tag on the outside that said (For when your missing me). She laughed so hard. 

At least It wasn't a extra dirty sock. I have gave her a few of those as gifts before. I would even add sticky burs to them. I can still see her expression when she opened them. Oh how funny, I Love to laugh.

Well that's It for me today. Time for me to get some house work done. Blah!
Happy Day to you, hope you stop by again.

Bridal Shower Card

 Today I want to share with you a Card that I made for my Niece for her Bridal Shower.

Had to think for a good while on what kind of card to make but thought a ring box might be cute. Not sure on how I feel about it but hopefully she will like It.

Sorry about the picture quality, I took It with my phone. I should have known better. 

For the ring and ring box I used the Sweetheart Cartridge. 
The Cardbase was cut from the Wild Card Cartridge.
Used a Stampin Up Embossing Plate on the pink paper.
Added some white glitter tulle
You can't tell from the picture but for the diamond I used white glitter paper. 

 I would also like to Thank my Sister for surprising me the other day with a Stamp Set that I have been wanting called High Tide from Stampin Up. 

I was totally shocked. That was so sweet of her. I can't wait to use It.  (I'm Soooooo Excited)!!!!!

Thank You Tonda, Love you!

Thanks for stopping by and hope your day Is full of wonderful blessings.

Cute Giraffe Card!

Hey Crafters, It's Wednesday (Hump Day)! Hope you all are doing well. The weather Is nice here today in Indiana. In the 60's and Sunshine. Tomorrow Is going to be even better. Going to be 70 and Sunny. That sounds so wonderful. Although I have to help my Sister tomorrow with some clean up from Tornado Damage. But at least It will be nicer than the Storms and rainy days we have had. 

The Crazy thing Is that tomorrow will be 70 and this week end we are suppose to get snow. The weather here in Indiana Is like a roller coaster. Just Crazy!

Weather permitting this week end I am planning on attending the Birthday Party for my Great Great Nephew. Just typing that I feel sooo Old. His name Is Bo and He will be turning One years old. 

I feel like I just made his Card for his Baby Shower. Time flies by to fast. 
Anyway here Is his Card that I made for him.

 So for the Inspiration for this Card Is the Giraffe April that has been on the Internet for the past few weeks. She Is expecting a Baby and you can watch her live.

I check on her every now and again to see If she has had her baby. My family acts like I'm crazy. I say hey there are worse things I could be looking at. Hee! Hee!

So when I was thinking of a card to make,A giraffe just popped into my head. 

Cartridges used- Create a Critter, Wild Card and Sweet Treats
Embossed the number one with the Swiss Dots Folder.

This Card came together pretty quick and I think It turned out cute.

Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a Happy Crafty Day!

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-

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 !!!

Happy Birthday- S.U. Birthday Whimsy
S.U. Large Oval
S.U. Corner Punch
