Christmas Gift Card/Treat Holders

 It's here, It's Christmas Day, The day we celebrate the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ.

My daughter had to work today, so the the grandkids spent the night. As soon as she gets here we will open gifts and then we will be heading to her house to open gifts and to have Christmas dinner. (The kids are having a hard time waiting)

She Is making everything. I don't have to cook. I don't think I can remember the last time I didn't cook on Christmas.

We went to our sons house last night. Opened presents and he had made a Italian dinner.

I feel so blessed to be alive to celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior with my family. As some of you know I had emergency surgery earlier In the year and nearly died. 

Finally after a week In the hospital and a month and a half In rehabilitation I got to come home.   I still have to have two more surgeries and not looking forward to them but just so thankful to be home.

So for today I would like to share with you some little gift card/treat holders that I made.

I made several of these and had such a fun time making them. They were really easy to make.

Thought the candy cane looked cute on them. Didn't want to decorate them to much since they will probably be thrown away.

Well that's all for me.

Wishing you all a wonderful day and a very Merry Christmas!

Still Night Christmas Card

 ***It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas,* Everywhere you go.***  Thought I'd sing a little for you. Hee! Hee!

The days to Christmas seems to be flying by. It's almost here and I'm almost ready.  Need time to slow down just a little so that I can get everything done. 

I hadn't made Christmas Cards for a few years and decided to this year. I think what takes the longest Is trying to figure out what to make and then to get an assembly line going. 

I made two different designs this year. If you would like to see the other Christmas Card that I made it is on a post a few back.

So here Is one of the cards that I made this year.

Decided on making the cards with the Owl Die Set because I Love Owls and have a collection of them. Even my curtains In my craft room have Owls on them.

Took me awhile to make these cards. I had to make several. In several I mean a lot.

I know you can't tell from the picture but I spayed Pearl Glimmer Mist on them. So they are sparkly. Wish you could see It.

Well It's almost time for us to head off to Church. My Grand Daughter Is going to be reading some verses In Luke about the birth of Jesus.

Thank you for stopping by. Wishing you all a Wonderful Christmas.

Ornament Tags

 Hello, Who's ready for Christmas??? Not me! Not yet anyway. But almost.
Thought I would do a quick post and share a few tags that I made. I have made several tags but wanted to share just a few.

My Grand daughter ask me If I could make her a tag with some snow on It so I decided to make her a cute little tag that she can hang on her tree.

It's a shaker Tag, you can't tell but It has some little candy canes,White and red sequins,A silver swirl and some little white balls. 
I didn't add a lot of sequins because I wanted her to be able to see the snow on the bottom. 
The little Penguin Is cut from the Jolly Holiday Cricut Cartridge.
I think she will really like It. Added red and white baker's twine to hang from and a little felt candy Cane.
I think she will really like It.

I also made a Ornament tag for my daughter. Her's Is not a shaker. But I did put a piece of acetate over It. I know my daughter and she wouldn't want It to be a shaker.  She likes more rustic.


Used the stamp set Cozy Christmas in Early Espresso. Had a little bleeding of the Ink when I added some star dust stickles to the roof. 

For the snow I used the new Dazzling Diamonds card stock.
White gel pen for the snow.
 Merry Christmas is from a stamp set called Sentiment Jolly Ornaments and the white ribbon is new from Stampin Up called Polka Dot Tulle and added some Jute twine for It to hang.

Also here Is another one I made. Nothing fancy, just fast and simple. Thought I would share as well.

This one was really easy to make. I put to and from on the back. So this one can hang from a tree to.

Well I've got a lot to do so I've got to go. Glad you stopped by. I will be sharing a few more things before Christmas. Hope you can come back.  Have a wonderful day, Merry Christmas!

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
Snowflake- Gypsy Wanderings
Wild Card- Scallop for Sentiment

Stamp Sets-

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.

Glad you could stop by. Please leave a comment so that I can come over to your blog for a visit. 

Here Is a list of Items used to make this Card-

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!

Our town actually had trick or treating last night. Due to all the rain moving in today and tonight. We are going to get a bunch. Blah!

So my grandkids came last night and got their treat's.

A side view 

I knew that all their candy wouldn't fit In these. But a few special treat's did. They also got Yoo Hoo drinks. I get them some every Halloween. My grandson called them Yahoos for years. Ha!

They do hold more than the ones that I made for trick or treater's. The Trick or Treater's also got Halloween cups filled with candy.

These were fun to make. I really enjoy making boxes and bags.

Red S.U. Marker for eyeballs 

I did have a hard time stamping the rat. I can't stand them. A great fear of mine. I couldn't hardly even look at It. I kept telling my self. It's just a squirrel.  Ha!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Halloween!!!

Dahlia Card for a friend

 Hello, It's Tuesday evening. My grand kids have gone home and my husband Is asleep. So I thought this was the perfect time to get a post In.

Wanted to share a Card that I made for a friend that Is going through a very hard time right now. She has breast cancer and has had numerous surgeries.  

So I made her this card to let her know she Is always In my thoughts and prayers. 

Used a stamp called Dahlia for this card and stamped It In Cranberry Crisp. Very easy to make since I only had to stamp it on the wood paper. 
Also used a stamp set called Sincere Salutations for the sentiment. Stamped in Close to Cocoa. 
Also added a sheer ribbon and some jute twine.

Thanks for stopping by and would greatly appreciate if you could say a prayer from my friend Rachel. God bless!

Walker turns 13

 Hello, Hope you all are doing good on this beautiful Wednesday.   

My Grandson Walker Is turning 13 today. (Hold on while a wipe a tear away). 

I don't know how that Is even possible. Children just don't stay little long enough. 

So for today I would like to share with you the Birthday Card that I made him. 

Used the S.U. Stamp Set Birthday Wishes for you. I'm pretty sure he will like It. Maybe not as much as the presents we have for him but he will like It. 

He Is really excited about being a tee..... a tee..... 
Sorry having trouble saying that word. Let me try again.
A Teenager.  Wow, that's hard for me to say. Going to take me awhile to get used to him being a tee...  A you know what.

Anyway that's my post for today. I have got to get back In the kitchen. I am baking him a cake.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a Awesome day!

Time to Celebrate!!!

 Hello Crafter's, Hoping your having a good day. Thanks for stopping by. 

Have been busy In my Craft room. Have been doing some organizing. I have gotten a little distracted a few times. I found a few things that I didn't even know that I had and I found a few things that I had lost. 

This post Is a Super Happy one, My Grandson got Baptized!
 I am so happy for him. Wanted to share the quick card that I made for him. 

I made this card so quick that I can not remember what Cricut Cartridges that I used. The patterned paper was some I had In my bag of scrap papers. For being a fast card, I think It turned out fine and my Grandson seemed to really like It to. 

Well that's all I have to share today. Please stop by again and have a wonderful and blessed day.

 Hello, Hope you are having a wonderful day and Thank you for taking the time to stop by my blog. 

As some as you know If you seen my last post, that my Uncle Clinton passed away. Went to his funeral yesterday. It's hard when a loved one passes. He was a great guy, So fun, Always smiling and laughing. He had the best laugh and I will always cherish the memories that I have of him. 

Unfortunately I had to make another Sympathy Card. I keep telling myself to make some ahead of time. But I still haven't done It. 

I was very emotional making this card. A young man passed away suddenly that went to school with my two children.  He left behind two young children and a wife that Is expecting their third child. So heartbreaking.

His grandmother goes to my Church. So this card Is for her. Here Is the card that I made for her.


I hadn't used this stamp set in a long long time. But thought It would make a nice Sympathy card.

The Art of Life (Sympathy Card)

  So glad you could stop by. Has been a sad day. My Uncle Clinton passed away earlier today.  It's so hard to believe. He was such a great guy. Loved to play the banjo. Seems like he was always smiling. Even though I am sad I know that he Is rejoicing being reunited with his family In heaven. 

There has been several people passing lately and It never gets easy. So hard on the families.

Any of you that have made Sympathy Cards (Especially when needed) know that they are the hardest to make. 

Sharing this card that I made for my friend who lost her niece. 

  Used The Art for Life Stamp Set again for this Sympathy Card. I knew that I had had this Stamp Set for a good while so I thought I would check to see when It was made It's from 2005. I think It's a nice Stamp Set for Sympathy Cards.

For the sentiment Inside I stamped Thinking of You with deepest Sympathy for your loss.

This Stamp Set Is called Thinking of You " Inside & Out" from Cardz TV. I recently won this Stamp Set from Mary and I Love It. So nice having some nice Sympathy Stamps for those cards that you will be giving to someone that has lost a loved one. 

All of Mary's Stamps are high quality photopolymer and Made In the U.S.A. You can see Mary's whole collection of Cardz TV Stamps at-  http://cardztvstamps.blogspot.com/

Catching Lightning Bugs In a Jar

 Hey, Glad you could stop by, Can't believe that June will soon be coming to an end. Time seems to be In fast mode. It has already been over four months since I had my surgery. 

When I was growing up I didn't mind the hot days of Summer and could spend hours out side playing.

 A fond memory of mine Is going out after dark and catching Lightning Bugs and putting them In a Mason Jar. I would take them to my my bedroom and look at them In the dark for awhile and then let them go. 
Have any of you all ever done that? 

I know some of you all call them Fireflies. But around here most everyone calls them Lightning Bugs.

Seems like this Summer their are more Lightning Bugs than usual. The Trees look like they are full of twinkling lights. So pretty!

 My Sister Tammy and I was talking recently about how many there are. So I decided that was the perfect Birthday Card for her this year.

So glad that I had ordered the Jars of Love Stamp Set from Stampin Up. Great Stamp Set. Love It! Instead of stamping and cutting out the handle I decided to use a thin wire. Really like how It turned out.

Here Is a list of the products that I used-

Jars of Love Stamp Set- S.U.
Hardwood Background Stamp - S.U.
Jars of Love Dies- S.U.
Scallop Border Punch- S.U.

High Tide Father's Day Card

 Hello, Thanks for stopping by. Today Is Father's Day and I am missing my Dad so much today. 

So for today I am sharing a card that I made just for my Dad because I am thinking of him. 

This Is my first time using this stamp set and I do Love It! Had a fun time playing around with It. Sorry about the picture, It's a tiny bit blurry. My Sister Tonda surprised me awhile back with this Stamp set. For no reason at all. She knew that It was on my wish list. So kind and thoughtful of her. (Thank you Tonda)!!!! I LOVE IT!

Here Is list of the products that I used to make this card.

Stamp Set- High Tide (Stampin Up)
Stamp Set -Thoughts of Father (Stampin Up)
Cardstock- Cherry Cobbler and Whisper White
Ink- Cherry Cobbler, Buckaroo Blue, Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Soft Sky and Memento Tuxedo Black

Hope you enjoyed seeing my card. Have a great day and stop by again when you get the chance.
