Last Card of the Year


Here in my neck of the woods we still have 20 minutes until the New Year. This has been such an awesome crafty 4 months. I have met some really wonderful folks and am having such fun with my blog. I am hoping that 2011 will bring some really amazing things for everyone.

The last 3 months have been really hard for my daughter and grandkids and I am praying that it gets a lot better for them in the New Year. The other day I came in the house with the mail and my daughter asked if she got anything and then my grandson said, "Did I get anything?" That got me to thinking about how he and his sister might get their spirits lifted by getting some regular mail so I decided that I am going to make them cards and send them through the mail. Today they got newletters from the church addressed to them personally and you should have seen their faces so that confirmed my decision.

I made this card with the Four Legged Friends cartridge for my grandson. His name is spelled with some metal letters from Spare Parts and the sentiment is from My Pink Stamper "Even More Punny-licious".

Perpetual Calendar Finished

Well I got them all finished in time to give when we celebrated on Sunday. I had so much fun making this calendar and they are such amazing cuts. My mom loved it when she opened it.

I added a couple of gems to the posts for a little bling.

This is exactly how my hubby mows the lawn.

I added a couple of butterflies flying around the picnic.

I sprayed Sheer Shimmer Spritz on the chalkboard and I think it looks a little like left over chalk dust.

The twine that I ordered from The Twinery came in the mail on Friday just as I finished this page so I was able to use some for his belt and he looks so cute.

I added a little white gel pen to the roof and tree to make some frost and some gold glitter pen to the moon and pumpkin faces for some glow. It really looks like those pumpkins have a candle inside.

This little lady looks too darn cute to even think about eating for Thanksgiving dinner. I added gems around the frame also.

Perpetual Calendar - February - March - April

I fear that I may not get my entire calendar finished before Christmas.  I am ahead of the current month so I guess I can give it to my mom and then finish it a little at a time or kick it into high gear and get 2 done each day.
I ran the base layer of the heart through my Xyron and attached the top layer and then heat embossed the remaining that was sticky. I put a metal gem in the middle of each one of the flowers and used my new tag maker (I looked everywhere for it and finally found it at Joann's online) to frame the sentiment which is from Pink by Design "Love Always" set.

There wasn't much added to this layout except a whole LOT of stitching. I also used pearlized paper for the gold and it really makes it shimmer.

I used a Gelly Roll metallic pen to highlight the flowers and white and black for the other stitching. I added a green gem from Hobby Lobby for the dot of the "i".

Wise Men Still Seek Him

Mom asked me to make some Christmas cards for her clients so I made these slider cards. I think they turned out so amazing. I used the "SL Christmas Silhouettes" font for the wise men and star. I printed the sentiment (mom came up with) and punched it out with my Stampin' Up window punch.

My Pink Stamper Challenge

This is Day 2 of Robyn's "12 Days of Christmas" and she is having a challenge. The rules are to use 2 shades of pink, 2 shades of blue and black. It also has to be something you make just for this challenge. So I made this really cute Christmas card.

EK Success punch for the gingerbread girls

Thank you for 'bear'ing with me!

Merry Kissmas

This is my first real attempt at using a digital stamp and I think it turned out pretty darn cute. I think I stayed inside the lines pretty well. It helps when you have an amazing product to start out with. I am giving it to friends along with the Christmas ornaments that I made for them.

Kristal at KAndrew Designs has an awesome sale on her digital stamps and I couldn't resist buying them.  This one just jumped out at me and I am entering it in her Getting Cricky Simply Charming Challenge.

oops I was too late to enter.

I have been very lucky lately and thought I would pass-it-along. I won a pink Fastenater Mini from KAndrew a little while ago and then I won another one from RSMobley and she said I could pass it along.  I absolutely love this gadget and all the different staples you can get for it.

Today I had a shopping spree at Hobby Lobby and picked up a few more things to add.

I have encluded some pink Jolee's "All That Bling" dimensional stickers, some Glamour Glitz hotfix rhinestones and iron-on nailheads.

You may be asking yourself, "How am I supposed to get this bling onto my projects?" Well I have got an Imaginisce i-rock heat setting tool to go along with all this awesome PINK!!

I am leaving this open for the month of November.
So all you need to do is:
1-Become a follower
2-Leave me a comment on this post
3-Pass the word along. You will get an extra entry for everyone you send over when they become a follower and leave me a comment saying you sent them.
At this time I am very sorry but I can only ship to the U.S.

Pink Winner

If someone can please let me know exactly how this thing works I would appreciate it. :-o

So what I did was copy all the comments into a Word document and then took out all the duplicates and the 1 that I posted and then whenever someone mentioned they were sent by someone else (Yolie) :-) I put her name under the one that commented. I then entered the info into but when I pasted the HTML code they gave me into this message the winning # didn't show so I took a screen shot of what was on their site and pasted the picture into this message. Congratulations to Susan from My Thoughts My Heart.
