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

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!

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!!
