Thank You!

 Hello all my craft friend! Hope this post finds you all well and enjoying life in general.
Yesterday my door bell rang and to my surprise it was a delivery man with a beautiful bouquet of red and white roses with no card. This had me wondering who would be sending me flowers! It was not my birthday and my anniversary was in October so I started phoning around to try and figure out the puzzle.
Turns out it was my grandson girlfriend Karol that sent them to me. She heard that I had not been feeling well and thought these would cheer me up!  So I decided to run down stairs last night and make a thank you card for her
Sentiment is from Joys Life "All Around Sentiment Stamps"
The tag was cut  from Spellbinders Shapeabilities "Framed Tags One"
Roses from Cricuts Flower Shoppe cartridge.
Talking about roses here is a picture of the beautiful flowers she sent.
I told my grandson last night that she was a keeper and to treat her good! LOL!

Wishing You Many Magical Moments!

Wow can you believe I am back again! Three times in one week......!
I haven't done this in a very long time, but here in Alberta it is so darn cold, nobody wants to leave their house. So what better way to spend your time then scrapping away and using up some of that darn supplies you bought way back when. LOL!
This week My Craft Spot has a sketch  challenge and Fantabulous Cricut has a fun challenge called Animal Crackers so I thought what better time to get another Christmas card done.
My take on the sketch, using DCWV Traditional Holiday Pack. (Once again not a great picture because of weather conditions)

This weeks sketch over at My Craft Spot.

 This sentiment is from My Craft Spot "Joy Filled Christmas" which just arrived in my mail box last week!
(Thanks Kimberly for shipping so quickly!)
 and then of course I had to finish the inside of the card, since I will be using this one right away.
( I have a bad habit of not finishing the inside of the card, how about you?)
 The inside sentiment is from My Craft Spot " Jingle All The Way"

White on White Christmas Card.

Wow I can't believe I have another card done. Right now there are so many fun challenges going on that I just had to try  and get another couple of cards done. So with this being said I combined a few of my favorite challenges and came up with this beauty!
I wish the picture had turned out better but it is dark and gloomy right now so I will try and take a better shot later today when the sun comes out.
This card is 4.5 X 4.5 square. Using the white on white theme I just used the same card stock but used a snowflake embossing folder by Sizzix to add different texture to the card. The snowflake in the middle was cut using my Cricut machine and Cricuts Joys Of the Seasons cartridge, which I then covered in stickles to get another texture to the white card stock. 
The Beaded Squares were made using Spellbinders Nestabilities S4-315. Finishing touches, some pretty white ribbon, pearls and a button in the centre of the snowflake.
Challenges entered:
Bitten By The Bug 2 - White on White Christmas
Fantabulous Cricut - Ribbons and button
Die Cuttin Diva's -  Use buttons
Craft-Dee BowZ - anything goes
As always thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Merriest Wishes!

Hello all my crafty friends and family! Well I finally made it down to my craft room and did something. I can't believe it has been this long, but with Christmas just around the corner I have been busy shopping and wrapping all the gifts that will be under the tree once again this year. On the bright side of it I only have two gifts left to buy and then I can start on the baking and decorating. 

I found a fun challenge over at Hiding in my Craft Room so I decided this would be a good time to start on the Christmas cards.
This weeks challenge is to use a Die Cut so I dug out my Jolly Holiday Cricut cartridge cutting the Elf out at 3.5 inches and made this adorable card.
I used my gypsy to cut the face so I could hide the cut marks so I could use my Peachy Keen stamps for the face( which I smudged) darn it anyway!
The sentiment is from My Craft Spot stamp set "Jingle All The Way"
Did you see all the new stamp sets and Dies that were just released over at My Craft Spot? They are all so cool and fun that I could not help but go shopping and then to top it off  I was lucky enough to win this set! Oh Yea! Doing the happy dance!
Here's a shot of the inside of the card.
and finally a picture of the card with matching envelope.
Woo Hoo!
One down and a whole bunch more to go. LOL!
