Thank You a Bunch! and WINNER!!!!

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!

Hi and Welcome to the "HAVE AN OWLSOME FALL Y'ALL BLOG HOP" I'm Sooo Excited that It's finally the Day for this Blog Hop! Fall is my Favorite time of year and I am addicted to Owls! So to have two of my favorite things together. Well it just don't get any better than that.
This is a Two Day Hop and I am on day Two. So If you just happened to visit my blog today and would like to Hop along you can start at the beginning with our Host   Heather Lynn  If you just came from   Erica S.  blog, then you are at the right place.
Since I Love Fall and Owls so much I wanted my Project to be something that I could really enjoy. So after some thinking I thought that I would make some kind of Centerpiece Decoration, that I could sit up.
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.

Happy Birthday Christy and Congratulations McKinley!

Hi and Thanks for stopping by my Blog! Today is my Sister Christy's Birthday! Thought I would share the Card that I made her. Christy Loves Owl like I do. So I knew that I had to make her a Card with an Owl on It. So I decided to make an Owl Shape Card using the Cindy Loo Cartridge. I didn't add a Sentiment or anything on the Front. Thought that she could sit it up in her Craftroom.  I embossed the front with the So Swirly Embossing Folder,Used two Amber colored Gems for the Eyes and added a little Twine Bow on top. Hope you like my Card ! Going to post this on the Link Up Tuesday on Sarah's Blog http://www.pinkcricut.com
Also going to put this Card in the Challenge over at Celebrate the Occasion    The Challenge is to make a Shape Card.

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. I got there a little late and he said he didn't think anyone was coming to be with him. I felt so bad for being late. Thanks for coming by and hope you like the Card. Would Love for you to leave a comment. Have a Great Day!
