Owl Hoot Card and more

Good afternoon, It's a cold and kind of gloomy day here In Indiana today. Wanted to get this post up before the grandkids get off the bus. They will be spending the night with us. They usually end up spending most weekends with us. I love to get to spend extra time with them. They will be all grown up before I know it.

I just love Owls and love this sweet little owl stamp. The stamp is from Unity Stamps called Have a hoot of a day. 

I made this card for a niece of mine and since Amber loves owls to I knew that this cute stamp would be perfect.

 Everything seemed to come together so quickly for this card. Love the cute patterned papers I choose for the owl. I'm not the best at paper pieces but this was pretty easy.

Added some stickles to the hat. I mean it's a birthday hat. You have to have some glitter and sparkle for goodness sake. Hee! Hee!

Don't know where I got that little piece of wood  paper but I knew it would look so cute for the sentiment. Also added a little sequins by the sentiment. 

This card was so fun to create. I just love making my own cards. Now I know that I could save a lot of money just picking up a card at the dollar store but seriously what's the fun in that? 

Also on my last post I shared some cut outs with you that I had made for my great - great nephews birthday party. Thought I would share just a few pictures of them up at the party. My niece seemed to be happy with them.

I also want to share with you a few pictures of the goodies that I won over on Crafting and Relaxings  youtube channel. 

It's a Pocket letter that is filled with Christmas crafty goodies and she also sent a few other extra goodies.

 Sorry for the poor picture quality, I tried the camera on my husbands phone. 

She does an amazing job at putting these pockets together. This was the first one that she made. My grand daughter Scarlett has been wanting to make some pocket letters. Sarah even sent a few extra pockets for her.

So we will be enjoying some crafty time together. Hope you get a chance to check out Sarah's channel. 

Well that's my share for today. Hope you enjoyed stopping by. Would love for you to leave a comment. If you do I would love to come visit your blog and see what you have been creating. 

Happy day to you crafty friends, blessings to you all.

Mickey Mouse Card

 Hello, Thanks for stopping by. Wanted to share with you a card that I made for my great-great nephew Easton for his first birthday. 

He is having a Mickey Mouse party. So I used my Cricut Explore to make his card.

Cut some images from the Mickey and Friends Cartridge. So many cute images on there.

This card did come together pretty quick. I did run the star through the cuttlebug because I thought the card needed a little texture.Used the dots embossing folder.

My niece Amanda, Easton's grandma ask me if I could make a little banner to put on his highchair and if I could cut out some small Mickey heads. 

Here is a picture of the pieces I cut out for the banner. But not put together and also the different sizes of Mickey heads. I may need to cut out more.

I also made a few more things that she didn't ask for. I'm sure they will appreciate a few more things to add to the party.

I think the little Mickey shorts are cute at the bottom of the sign in sheet. Easton Is going to be wearing a pair of them with suspenders for his party. 

I did cut out a big Mickey Mouse head but forgot to take a picture of it. I will try to get a few pictures at the party. 

That's all I have today to share. Hope you all have a great day and hope you come back again.

Have yourself a Merry little Coffee

 Hello Crafter's, glad you could stop by. Want to share a card with you that I have made for the Fall/Winter 2019 Coffee Lover's Blog Hop Challenge. 
It is from Friday November 1st - Friday November 8th.

 Oh my, the hop has been so fun and have gotten so much Inspiration. 

I don't have a lot of coffee stamps (yet) so I made this using a digital Image I downloaded from  one of the sponsors of the hop.

This was my first time using a digital Image. So I was a little nervous. But it was easy to download. The hardest part was cutting it out. I think it turned out pretty cute. 

Here is a list of supplies that I used,

Digital Coffee Image from Jessicalynn originals
Stampin Up Stamp Set- Snowflakes
Card stock- White, Kraft and Real Red
Paper- from the Night before Christmas 6X6 Designer Series Stampin Up
Inks- Always Artichoke,Old Olive,Real Red,Summer Sun,Ruby Red and Blackberry Bliss
Stitched circle die

White pom pom trim
Rhinestone gem

If you get a chance hop on over to the start of the hop at Coffee Loving Cardmakers. 
There are lots of great sponsors and lots of Awesome prizes. 

That's it for me today. Hope you all have good and blessed day.

Let It Ride Birthday Card and White Milk Gravy

 Hey Crafter's, Glad you could stop by today to see my latest card that I have made.

My Daughter's birthday is today. Won't say how old she is. She may not want me saying. I will say she's over 21. Hee! Hee!

My daughter LOVES horses. So I knew for this year I wanted to make her a card with a horse on it. As soon as I seen the stamp set "Let It Ride" I knew I had to get it. 

So here Is the card I made for her.

 I have to say I enjoyed putting this card together. I had bought that embossed brown paper years ago. So glad I finally used it. It's called Brown pressed Tiles from the Paper Studio.

I was at the Dollar Tree one day and seen the roll of Burlap ribbon. I knew that it would be perfect for this card. 

Did a little water coloring for the sky and grass using Marina Mist, Old Olive and Mellow Moss. Stamped the horse in Timber Brown and colored it with a Stampin Blendabilities in the color Nude. 
Framed the picture with a scalloped rectangle die in Old Olive.

 Used the weathered background stamp in chocolate chip on the marina mist cardstock. Thought that made it look a little more rustic. The base of the card is Close to Cocoa.

Almost didn't add the sentiment to the front of the card because I wasn't for sure it would look right but I managed to get it on there. I think it looks o.k. I also made the rope using some jute twine.

I'm pretty sure she Is going to love this one. It will remind her of her horse Dolly. 

I also thought I would share a recipe with you. My grandkids spent the night a few nights ago. So I decided to make a breakfast supper. Made some white gravy and thought I would share with you. 

White Milk Gravy

You will need-

4 Cups Milk
8 Tbs. Flour
1 Stick butter

In a skillet add 1 stick butter. Melt, to that add 8 Tbs. flour. Mix and add 2 cups milk. Add pepper and just a little salt and vigorously whisk to get the lumps out and then add 2 more cups milk. When it starts to bubble keep stirring until it's thicker.  Don't leave it, it will stick to bottom. Take off heat. It will thicken up more after it's taken off.

 That's it, wasn't that simple? If you need more just double recipe. I sometimes double it so that we can have it for the next day. 

Hope you enjoyed stopping by and seeing my card and If you try the recipe let me know how it turns out.  Have a great day crafty friends. God Bless!!!
