Cute Kitty

Hi All, I am having a hard time getting out of the holiday mode. I have a lot of house cleaning and I still haven't seen all of the family I need to see and finish handing out gifts. But I also have a lot of birthdays this month also and didn't want a christmas looking birthday card so here are some old whippersnapper cat, mouse, and fishe bones for a great birthday card and the card layout is a simple one that you could incorporate any of your small stamps with. Thanks for stopping and I will be talkin to ya soon. If there is anything you want me to work on an idea for just drop me an email line or a post to this card and I will get working on it right away.

Reindeer Poop!

OMG! I can't believe it's almost Christmas. 7 days away people. I must admit that it really snuck up on me this year. I am completely not ready. And now it turns out that I will have people over on Christmas day. I didn't get my cookies or my candy made this year. I am a little out of sorts this year. So I apologize for the delay in posting on the blog also. Thanks for sticking with me and checking it out. Please keep visiting. I promise to get more organized. Happy Holidays Everyone!

Holiday Greetings

This is a different color skeem for me. Pinks! She came out cute though. Let me know what you think of my blog layout change. I am playing with the blog trying to see what I can do with it. I'm still learning.

Christmas Gift card holder

I found this card idea from last years stuff and I am not sure where I originally found it but I think it was on SCS. It measures 4 x 12
On the 12 inch side I scored it at 4 inches on each end. Now you have 3 sections that are 4 inch sections. Fold the middle in half in the opposite direction of the other folds. It is really simple. If you need more instruction email me.

12 days of Christmas

This is my beginning poem for my Secret Santa, 12 days of Christmas. This usually helps explain what we are doing in a cute little poem. I just did it two different ways to show you. My favorite is the Darcie Moose.

Riley for the Holidays

I am finally able to do some uploading of new stuff to my blog. I am sorry it took so long. I had two classes at the store this past week and was working a few more hours than originally planned but the classes are now done and I am able to post some new stuff.
This is my newest member to my stamp family. Of course it's a Riley in his PJ's. I don't know if you can read the stamp but it says "Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse" and I crossed out mouse and wrote Moose. PERFECT.
Gotta Love him.

Winter candy box

Happy Friday Everyone! Sorry it has taken me a little while to blog but I have a lot of projects that I am working on at the moment and there isn't enough time in a day for me to get everything finished. I have 2 secret santa projects, 2 classes at the store, a stamp camp project, and I have to finish up a few of my christmas cards. But don't worry I will be posting some of the projects as I complete them.
This is a cute box that I stuck test tube in filled with candy and biscotti. These make great teacher gifts, office gifts, mailman gifts, you name it. You can fill them with any number of great candies. I made the box out of acetate but you can buy clear boxes pretty cheap at Now that I know this these are a lot easier to do. lol

I am Back

I am back from my 13 hour trip to missouri to visit with family for the holiday. I think I am more stressed now than when I left but I did manage to get a little creativity back. I looked at some of my old card ideas from years ago and remembered doing tea bag folding and other types of folding with squares. Well now that I have a cuttlebug I used the scalloped squares instead and what a difference it made in the look of the christmas tree.

This card is full of sparkle that you can't really see with pictures I have one picture with flash and one without. If you need to know how I did these just leave a comment or give me an email. I don't mind and would love to hear from you. These are very easy and quick cards you could whip out a bunch in no time. I will be having a class on these cards at the store on Dec. 13th for those in my area.
Thanks for stopping by I will have more I am working hard.
