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!

Hump Day!!!

I gotta say, THIS WEEK IS DRAGGING!!!  lol!  It's one of those weeks for me that is filled with all of the meetings and school things that you just dread, and can't wait to get them over with!  Blech.

Any-who......

I have a couple of adorable ladies I wanted to post today!  But, before I do, I have to add that this is work that I am submitting to CC Designs current DT call!  I have been shopping around trying to broaden my stamping horizons, and realized that CC has some of the cutest images ever!!!!  This is the first time in a while that I am not currently on a team, and I figured it is the perfect time to go for it!  I had placed an order for some CC Design stamps, and wanted to use those for my submission, but I just can't wait anymore and decided to go with this work!

This image is Lead The Way


I kept this super CAS.  I wanted to focus on the image more than anything!
I used a lot of RV's and V's on this color scheme.

Next up I have a Christmas card with Amelia from The Greeting Farm-

Her hair is super time consuming, but totally worth it!

I love this Xmas paper, it's from Fancy Pants and it's called
Merry Little Christmas.
This Amelia is from the Surprise set.
The sentiment is from Avocado Arts-
I think I only used R20, R22, R24, & R27 for her outfit!
(that's a miracle for me!)

Well, that's all for me!  Early release is today (every Wednesday, don't get it.) and I will have to get Maddie shortly.  I dared Maddie to eat some ghost Peeps right before school today, and she DID!! lol!  I will be interested to see how her morning went!!  Mwahhh ha ha!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Gotta Love Fall!

Happy Tuesday!!??  I spent the weekend cleaning and reorganizing my craft-room.  Here's where my dilemma came in- do I keep sorting my paper pads and embellies by company, or should I keep all of the Halloween together, Christmas together, etc....  How do you guys choose to categorize?  I had every paper pad by company, but then I realized I was missing a lot of the holiday pads that I had forgotten about!  (I hate it when I hide things from myself!)

I digress.  Today I have a cute Fall tag that I made with the Special Autumn set from The Greeting Farm.

SPECIAL-AUTUMN-Miss-Anya-Ian-The-Greeting-Farm-Cling-Mount-Rubber-Stamp-Stamping
This set is super old, and isn't in the TGF shop any more.
(but lookout for those Farmer's Markets!)

Love this combo of browns, oranges and purple!!
I love all of the textures on here as well!
(I am crazy about this ribbon and using it sparingly!!)

The sequins on this tag are from my Paper Issues
Swag Bags.
The stitched leaves dies are from Lawn Fawn.


I am entering this tag into the challenge over at Paper Issues-
I am a huge PI fan, I order from them all of the time!!

Thanks for stopping by and looking!!  Let me know if you have any awesome organizational ideas that you would like to share!!

Have a great day!

Turtle Power!

Happy Hump Day!!!  Hope everyone is having a great week!!

I just wanted to pop in today with a card that I made for the Paper Smooches Challenge- Anything Goes!!  (gotta love that theme!)

I needed to make a card for my nephew, and this is what I came up with!



Very CAS, because I wanted it to survive the mail!!
The paper is from the Fancy Pants "Be Different" pad.
The turtle and hamster are from the Paper Smooches
"Party Posse" set.

I am so bad at card innards.

Love coloring me some turtles!!

That's all for now!!  I have so many projects that I have finished, but just haven't had the time to photograph!!  Crossing my fingers that I will get caught up soon!

Thanks for stopping by!!

Geez, post something already.....

I blinked and a week went by since my last post!!  lol!  I promise you though, I have been slaving away on many projects still!  Hopefully I will get some pictures of things I have been doing around the house and share those with everyone shortly.  For right now, I just have a few Saturated Canary cards to share with you!

First up is A New Canvas.



And this cutie pie is Parade. (i believe she is no longer in the shop, sorry)



Well, that's all for now!  I am off to the Scrapbook Expo happening today in Denver!!  I am little concerned over how short the vendor list is, but I am sure I will find something to spend some $$ on!!

Thanks for stopping by!
