Boo to You!

Good Afternoon!
I have a very quick post for you. I have to do 
this in between company! LOL! I decided at
the last minute I wanted to make my gkids a
matchbook card with hot chocolate inside!

I used an embossing folder and my sentiment is from 
holiday best. I mass produced these in about 45 min!
Here is the inside!

The kids will love these with a little candy on the side!
Have a great Halloween!

Christmas CASE!

Good Morning!
I have a Christmas Case card to share with you today!
This card was super simple and really fun to create!
I CASED this card.

I changed the layout a little, and the sentiment. and the colors, 
but the original idea is still there. We are making this card as one
of our stamp-A-stack designs. I cut and embossed 36 of these
babies! I think the girls will like it! That's it for me today!
I forgot to mention Selma has some awesome candy!

Have a great day!

I don't want Mary Anne to think I am avoiding her LOL!
    Taeler, Tukker and Kylah were totally surprised with their Dad being home! Grinning from ear to ear. They follow him around like little lost puppies! Sooooo cute!
     Ok back to my card! My base is whisper white layered with cajun craze and more whisper white! This is an all purpose card... would work for any occasion!

Northern Hearts

 Good Morning!
Taeler and I had a blast yesterday.  She stayed in
my craft room and colored most of the day! We 
are stopping at her house when I take her to school...
she has no idea her dad is home. Jami had to pick him
up in the Seattle area yesterday. Seattle is 6hrs away.
Daniel will go to school and pick up the other 2 kids
this afternoon. This boy is the glue that anchors this
family. He was going to pick Taeler up too but she
is homesick and needs to see her mom before school!

I am really happy with how this card turned out! I used
the new set northern hearts from SU... LOVE IT! My
dp is holiday joy. I am entering in these challenges:
That's it for today! See you tomorrow!

Spooky ,Spoky Spiders....

Good Sunday Morning Friends!
Has anyone missed me? That crummy cold caught
me! I swear I blew the mojo right out my nose...seriously!
My gdaughter Taeler is here spending the night. She doesn't
know it but her mom is on her way to pick up her dad . He
is coming home for good from the marines. We have club
on Tuesday evening and I thought I would make a little
Halloween treat for the ladies. 

Taeler and I punched and assembled these in about an
hour. Their bodies are peppermint patties. You know 
anything with patti in it has to be yummy... right?
I saw these spiders here, and had to give them a try.
They are so cute and fun to make! Hope you have a 
super creative day. Taeler and I are going to stamp the 
day away!

    Artful INKables!

    Good Morning!
    Did the weekend fly by or what! Holy molly.... seems
    like I didn't have any time off! My card today is done
    with Artful INKables "Peaceful Wishes". I LOVE this set!

    I double stamped my image by using the plastic sheet
    from my stampin-ma- jig. I stamped the image on the 
    sheet and then turned it over and rubbed it on my scene.
    Michelle Zindorf uses this technique! She is so wonderful!
    I then had to color it in. I love how it turned out! Pop over
    to Artful INKables and check out the store. Lot's of great
    stamp sets are on clearance. You still have a week to join
    in the current Think Ink challenge! 
    That's it for me today...back to work )0;

    Happy Anniversery Jugs

    Good Evening!
    When I saw Mary Anne's card for JUGs I just had to play!
    Her creation is over the top gorgeous! My card doesn't even
    compare! I created an "all " purpose card in fall colors! Not
    so happy with how it turned out but it is what it is!

    Really I think it's the color combo I don't like, and the 
    dp and the ugly flower in the corner.... other than that it's
    fine! OH WELL I got to play and maybe it started my mojo
    up! My card base is pumpkin pie layered with whisper white 
    green house gala dp. My image is from a really old SU set called
    toile blossoms. Well hope to see you in the morning with some kind
    of challenge card! I'm kinda lost with only one day devoted to DT work!
    Have a great day!
