Christmas card for 08'

Well here is one of my Christmas cards.  I just fell for CTMH's little elves this year!  So cute!  Anyway, I did this one up for Mojo #63 challenge.  Didn't get it in in time but was fun to make anyway.  Tho all my cards featured these elves only four or so were this design.  Unfortunately in my haste to mail them this is the only photo I have.  hehehe  Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!

 These were so fun to make!  Found a few patterns on the net.  But played around with them.  I'll see if I can remember where and let ya know.  Okay I got the cherry idea here.  This is the temp that I used for the card.  Though I changed it just a hair.  For the ice cream cone I hand drew it from a picture on the Dairy Queen home page.  hehe  The score lines one the cupcake paper and the cone I use me score pal.  Used CTMH's liquid glass on the cherries and SU's DP Flowers for you, so saffron, real red & chocolate chip (stems).

Kim's baby card

I love blue and yellow together!  Just so cheerful to me.  So when I found this card by Amy I had to lift her idea.  Saw the Swiss Dot cuttlebug plate first on her blog and fell in love with it.  If ya haven't checked out her blog yet I recommend it.  :)

I colored most of these images and then found homes for them.  Making it harder to find papers to match.  :)  They are just so fun to color.  :)  The DP is from CTMH (Elegant Bouquet).  Need to buy some more before it is discontinued.

Here is Willow making a special delivery of homemade chocolate chip cookies.  Had a hard time with her feet this time.  But she got center stage on a card anyway.  :)  DP is SU's Petals and Paisleys.  Card stock is garden green, chocolate chip, close to cocoa, so saffron, and very vanilla.

This is Whiff of Joy, Willow.  She is my second stamp from this company and defiantly not my last.  I have fallen  in love with em.  :)  Papers are CTMH Paper Garden.  Bling is from my stash and I don't know what company.

This is a Guardian Angel from Whiff of Joy.  She has been just so fun to color.  The papers are SU's Bali Breeze.

Along with the copic markers I got these Whiff of Joy stamps.  I have had such a good time coloring them.  This one I did up for my nieces 4th birthday.  I used the cuttlebug's Floral Fantasy embossing plate on the purely ponegranate.  Also used Whisper white and tempting turquoise.  Wish big is from SU's short & sweet.

A few Halloween creations

These Frankinstien boxes
were just too cute
for me not to do up for someone.
 I made these up and gave
them to the gals I visit 
teach.  You can find the
tut here.  The next is just a Halloween card using wild wasabi, DP is from the cricut paper pack doodlebugs (I think).  Witch and pumpkin is from SU's tag time.

Non traditional Christmas

A few late cards

Gina K designs has a lot of fun stamps but I just loved these owls.  I had a good time coloring them.  I used Koh-i-noor colored pencils (which you can also purchase from Gina), some DP from the dollar store, and SU's CS in vary vanilla, close to cocoa, old olive, and bravo burgundy.

This next one was some notes I sent to friends.  The colors and layout I got from SU.  CS- real red, tempting turquoise, only 
orange and garden green.  The snail and fly background is from Close to my Heart.

Been trying to decide what will be my Christmas cards this year.  
I feel so behind.  Last year they were all done by August.  So this is bad I dont even know what I want to do.  :)  The CS is SU's night of navy, bashful blue, whisper white, and pretty in pink.  The stamps are So Many Scallops and The World Over.  I colored the snow men matching colors and added some liquid applique for snow.  I embossed the scallops in white and the snowflake is glittery clear on a pop dot.  The light blue paper with snowflakes is from a kit unknown.  
Thanks for stoppin by

Another cake

Friend of mine has finally had her long awaited baby.  So this is the cake I whipped up for her.  :)  This was a week ago but I'm just now gettin to post.  :)


Okay this is what I got in the mail today.  I was so excited to play with it.  While at CKC I found a company that was selling these ATG tape guns.  It holds way more than my Tombo and the refills were around the same price (with almost 3x as much in them).  This seemed such a good investment but $81.00 was more than I wanted to spend at the time.  I looked up the company latter when I got home and discovered that you can order colors as well.  So I was glad I hadn't purchased one while at CKC.  The price was still a bit high.  So I started lookin around on line and low and behold I found a company that sells them for $41.00.  Yeehaw I was sold!  No fun colors but I thought I could play.  So here is my new and improved tape gun.....

Isn't that fun?  hehehe  Flowers, butterfly and my name is rub ons from Stampin Up.
