Blue Christmas Luminary!

Hello Everyone! It's really late at night and I can't believe that I am still up. Our Town had It's Trick or Treating tonight. So I spent the day getting ready for Trick or Treaters. This year my Grandson was a Star Wars Storm Trooper and my Grand Daughter was a Princess. They looked Adorable. They Loved the Halloween Cards that I made them. My 4 year old Grand Daughter said. This Card is so Special to me, I will keep it forever. It was just Precious.  Wanted to Share a Project with you that I finished tonight. It's a Christmas Luminary that I made for my Mom's 76th Birthday coming up in a couple of Weeks. I hurried and made it a little early so that I could enter It into the Terrific Tuesday Challenge over at http://www.scrappymoms-stamps.blogspot.com/ You are to use the Cricut Cartridge DoodleCharm. So I made the Snowman from that Cartridge. I am also entering this into the Wacky Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge over at http://morethanfavors.blogspot.com  I am Also going to put this in the Anything Goes Challenge over at  The Cuttlebug Spot I think my Mom will Love It! Her favorite Colors are Blue and White and she Loves Battery Operated Lights. She has them in just about every room in her House.  Well I had better get this done, So I can get to bed. Thank you for stopping by. Cindy

For my Grand Daughter I made a Princess Card using the Mini Monsters Cartridge and for my Grandson I made him a Corn Candy Shaped Card. Corn Candy is his Favorite. So I know he is going to Love it.  I embossed it with the Forrest Branches Folder.

For my next Project I wanted to do something with a Tea Light Candle. Because I used one in the Last Hop that I was in. So I decided on a Luminary. I used the  Jumbo Haunting Wheel from Stampin Up! I rolled it on Vellum. It was pretty easy to make and I think it turned out nice.

For my last Project I Knew that I had to use my new House of Haunts Stamp Set from Stampin Up. I Love It! I Stamped it with Versa Mark and then Embossed it with Black Powder. Brayered first Color and then Sponged the rest. I put in on a Side Step Card. I really Like how it turned out. I Love the Spooky Sentiment.

She has already ask us to buy her some candy to through out to the little Children. She's so Sweet and such a blessing to us all. Thought I would share a picture of her with the Princesses.

Happy 6th Birthday Walker !!!!

My Sweet Little Grandson's Birthday is today. His 6 years old. My Grand Children are growing up to fast. Walker is such a Sweet Precious little Boy.  I Love him so much. He is a Mamaw's Boy! I remember the day he was born. I got to Cut the Cord. That was such a Special moment in my Life.
His Birthday Theme this Year is Star Wars. I didn't have anything to make a Star Wars Card. So the only thing I could think of was a Space Card. So I made a Rocket in Space going to the moon and of course Walker had to be in the Rocket. So I put a picture of him inside.  Here is the Card that I made for him. If you comment, Would Love for you to wish him a Happy Birthday, so that I can read them to him. Thanks for visiting my blog. Wishing you a Happy Day! Cindy
