Wonderland Christmas Card

  Hello, It's late Monday night. Well It's after 2 in the morning, so It's actually Tuesday. Have been In my craft room working on some tags. Didn't realize how late it was. Time seems to fly when your working on a project. 

 It's getting close to Christmas. have a lot more to do before then. 

I do think I got done with my gift buying today. That's a good feeling. Need to do some house cleaning and wrap presents tomorrow. Well I mean today. 

Still making some tags. My grand daughter Scarlett helped me the other night cut out tag shapes. That helped a lot. 

This time a year It just seems like everything is In fast mode.

We get so caught up In the rush to get everything done that we forget the true meaning of Christmas.

For today I would like to share a Christmas Card that I made. I actually made a few of these. 







I absolutely Love this Stamp Set and made them fairly quickly. Was going to add some sparkle but my grand daughter didn't think I should. Since these cards are going to my some of my male family members.

Was going to add a banner at the bottom but then decided on tearing some white cardstock to look like snow. Glad I decided to do that Instead. I love the peaceful feel of this card.


Here Is a list of supplies used-
 Stamp Set- Wonderland
Card stock- Crumb Cake and White
Inks- Night of Navy and Crumb Cake
White Gel Pen


That's all for me. It's really late I need to head off to bed. Well as soon as I finish my coffee. 
I will be posting my other Christmas Card I made soon and a few other things I'm working on. 

Thank you for stopping by. Remember the reason for the season. 
Merry Christmas!

Have a Cozy Christmas Mug Card

 Hello, Hope you are having a nice Wednesday. The weather Is cold here today.My Church had It's Christmas dinner yesterday. It was really nice. The pumpkin pies that I made went fast. 

For the last couple of days though I have been in some serious pain. My back and hip are hurting so bad. Glad I was feeling a little better yesterday at Church. But today I'm In pretty bad pain again.
Praying It gets better soon.

I have been making Christmas Cards. My craft Room looks like an episode of Hoarder's. Not kidding! 

I think that's what has got my back and hip hurting is spending to much time sitting in my craft chair.

Anyway I wanted to make my Niece Amber a Christmas Card. She Is In the Air Force and far from home. I wanted  hers to be different than the other one's that I am making. I do know that her Christmas Tree Is In Red, White and Blue. So made her one with those colors.










I had so much fun using one of my Cricut's to make this card. Seems like I have been using my Stamp Sets so much that my Cricut was feeling a little left out. Hee! Hee!


I think she will enjoy getting It. Hopefully It will make her Christmas a little more happy. 

Here Is a list of supplies used to make this card

Cricut Cartridges-
Gypsy Wanderings-Mug
Cricut Craft Room Basics- Scalloped layers
Create a Critter 2- Candy Cane
Sweet Treats- Whipped topping

Flowering Fields (Last flowers of Fall)

Hey Crafter's, glad you could stop by. It's cold today. Seen some snow flakes awhile ago. Wish we had more fall like days. To cold for me.

My Craftroom Is a mess. Working on Christmas Cards and tonight my Grand Children are spending the night, going to have my Grand daughter Scarlett help me make tags. She doesn't know that we are and will be excited. She loves to play with all the crafty goodies.  I will have to do a little cleaning In there first before we start on the tags though.

Hopefully I can share my Christmas Cards soon but until then I thought I would share this card that I made using the stamp set Flowering Fields.







 I think It's such a pretty stamp set. Fun using different colors on the flowers. Decided to not color the Inside of the flowers. Thought It was fine the ways It was and made the process a little faster.

Stamp Set- Flowering Fields, Hardwood Background,Warmest Regards

Little Crochet Pumpkins

 Hello, Hope you all had a wonderful Thankgiving. Did you all over eat? I know I did and just when I didn't think I could take one more bite I had to eat some dessert.I have to say that the persimmon pudding my daughter made was the best that I have had in years and her homemade rolls are beyond delicious. OK I had better stop talking about food. I'm ready for another plate.  

I had been wanting to do some crocheting. I don't do to much crocheting In the summer. But as soon as It starts getting cool weather I start thinking about It again. 

 So started searching and thinking of what I can make. I like to do small things. I try to stay away from the big projects. That seem to take forever. So I finally decided on trying to make a small pumpkin. 

So today I am sharing a picture of a couple that I have made. They are the same pattern but one has the yarn just pulled tighter. Not sure which one that I like best. 



 


These were pretty fast to work up and pretty fun to make. Planning on making some more In different colors. I think I'm going to try a blue one for my grand daughter. (Her favorite color). 



The yarns that I used are Red Heart Love In Aran and Red Heart Super Saver In Cafe Latte.



Thanks for stopping by, happy day to you!

Still Night Birthday Card

 Hello Crafter's,
 Glad you could stop by, Well now that Halloween Is over, we will all be creating those fall and winter projects. Kind of hard to believe that It's now November. 

Today I want to share a birthday card that I made for my Daughter. Her favorite time of year Is fall. ( Mine to) and always try to use fall colors on her cards.





I recently found that fall colored patterned paper at Hobby Lobby and new that It would be perfect to use for my daughter's birthday card.

I think It goes well with the colors of card stock that I used. This Is also the first time that I am using this new stamp set. (I Love It)!!! We both love Owls. So this Is perfect for her card.

I stamped the Owl first In Crumb Cake (Kraft) Ink and then cut out a mask so I could stamp the tree branch and then cut out a circle so that I could sponge the sun.

I felt like It needed a frame and also wanted to have some embossing. So found the frame on the Cricut Cartridge Gypsy Wanderings. Then embossed It and sponged the edges.

Here Is a list of products that I used-

Stamp Sets-
Still Night, Dragonfly Dreams ( for sentiment)
Card stock- Speckled Vanilla (retired),Early Expresso,Soft Sky, Whisper White
Inks- Crushed Curry, Soft Sky, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Crunb Cake  
Patterned Paper- Hobby Lobby
Cricut Cartridge  Gypsy Wanderings- Frame
Embossing Folder- Woodgrain
Jute Twine
Yourstory Trimmer for scalloped borders 

Looking forward to later today to give her card and gifts to her. Time for me to get off here I need to start her cake.

Thank you for stopping by. Happy Day to you all and God Bless!
