Bonjour!

Happy day-before-Halloween!!!!  I am so stoked that Halloween is actually on a Friday night for once!!  My kids always have a Trick-or-Treat hangover the next day, so this will be so nice that I won't have to wake them up at the crack of dawn!!!  This year Hunter will be rocking the Incredible Hulk, and Maddie will be an adorable 50's car hop!

Today I have a stamp from The Greeting Farm's Super Secret Stamp Club!  She is #9 of the series, and her name is Day Out Anya!

Cutest outfit ever!!!

I used YR14, YR18, and E09 on her hair.

The stitched oval die is from Lil Inkers.

In case you can't tell, I am a huge kraft paper nut!!  I love how neutral it is, and I use it for almost every card base!  My favorite kraft paper comes from My Favorite Things.  Their paper is so awesome that is has turned me into a total cardstock snob!  lol!!

I am off to prep snacks for tomorrow's class party!

Thanks for stopping by!

How About A Cookie?

Thought I would post one of the Christmas cards that I have done recently!  I have been on a roll, but Christmas will be here before I know it, and I still have so many to make!!

The image on this card today is one of my very favorite characters from The Greeting Farm, his name is Oliver, and I could eat him up!

He is from the Oliver & Amelia Just For You set.  (retired)

I used some warm/creamy tones on him.


Definitely one of my very favorite boy stamps!!

Mailing out my Christmas cards costs me an arm and a leg because they are always so darn thick!  I think it's worth it though.

Now I am off to photograph some of my current projects I have been working on, see you soon!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Quiet Sunday

The Broncos are not playing today, so it will be pretty quiet around our house.  Lots of cleaning, homework, and hopefully some crafting!!

I thought this image from Saturated Canary would be perfect for football Sunday!

This is Crushing On The Quarterback!

I used my Lil Inker stitched ovals to cut her out.
I think each piece of patterned paper came from a
different pad!  lol!

I used a bunch of my favorite color combos on her.
This is my favorite blonde combo- E50, E51, E53, and a hint of E55.

She is such a sweet image!

That's all I have today!!  Enjoy the rest of your weekend!!

Thanks for stopping by!

The Cheeky line has always been one of my favorites
from TGF!
The patterned paper is from the Crate Paper pad-

Maybe we should all celebrate Friday with a big ol' cupcake!!

Anything Goes!

Helloooooo everyone!!  I have added an extra page tab up top here on my blog in an effort to de-stash my stamps!  I have way too many laying around that are being neglected, so I thought it was time to find them a new home!!

Today I am participating in the current challenge over at Paper Smooches!  It is an "Anything Goes" theme!  (we all love those!)



Here's my card-

This patterned paper is crazy-old, think it came from
Hobby Lobby!


These two are from the Halloweenies set.

What a pair!

I need to finish up some Halloween crafts, I jumped straight ahead to Christmas for some reason!! lol!  Halloween school parties are coming up, and I have a butt-load of goody bags to put together!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Sunday Already???

Sunday and I have a love-hate relationship.  It's still the weekend, but Monday is looming over me and reminding me that is is back to school/work tomorrow!! (blech.)

Today I am sharing some Christmas cards that I put together without coloring an image. (gasp!!!)

I used my Cameo to cut out some fun background designs, and then I used a few bits from the American Crafts "Be Merry" die cut pack.  (found it at Paper Issues!)


Cookies Die Cut Cardstock Ephemera-American Crafts Be Merry
I also used the Christmas Graphic Greetings stamp

 Graphic Greetings Christmas

These cards were quick, easy, and fun!!

That's all for me today!  I have a big pile of digital stamps I printed out, and they are calling my name!!

Have a great Sunday!!

Out On A Limb

The image I have to share with you today is one of those images that makes you do the satisfied heavy sigh.  Just a girl and her critter (not sure what he is, but he's unbearably cute!) cuddling on a tree branch.


This is Sweet Blossom from the Wee Stamps store.
(she's a digi.)
Cuteness overload!!!

Well, short and sweet for me today, I some projects to tackle today!!

I hope everyone has a wonderful start to the weekend!
