Cinderella Card from My Creative Time Challenge Last Week

Hey everyone I have been busy re-editing my video with the Cinderella card I made for my creative time challenge. It is currently uploading onto You tube and hopefully will be able to have it up for your viewing sometime later tonight.  I am so excited.  I have already made 2 cards that I am planning on making 2 more video's out of.  One video is filmed and needs to be edited and the other video needs filmed yet.  With all the Fall and Christmas/Winter cards being made on every one's blogs I am so excited about fall being right around the corner.  Every season I always think I love this time of year.  I love the fall colors, Than I'm ready for Christmas and then I can't wait for spring and the pastels again.  Then summer and the bright colors.  It is never ending, isn't it!  I guess the bottom line is I just love making cards for all seasons!

Have a great evening and stay tune for my next video!

My Pink Stamper Challenge It's Cold Outside

My pink stamper is having a "Its cold Outside" Challenge.  I realized something tonight.  I don't have a lot of winter/cold stuff.  I used this snowman from Doodlecharms.  Not my favorite card at all.  I also don't have a whole lot of sayings, so I would really be happy if I won the prize being give out for this challenge.  I would love any comments on what cartridge you all like the best with Winter things in it. I used little brads that look like buttons for the snowman's eyes and buttons down the front.  I put stickles on the trees to try to make it look like snow. Not really what I was looking for.  and I embossed the blue paper with the snowflakes embossing folder. I was looking for some saying along the lines of Let it Snow and couldn't find anything.  So I left the top left hand corner blank.


Fall / Thanksgiving Card

LOL Starting out I was going to make a fall card.  You know more towards Halloween, Pumpkins or what not and I ended up with this Turkey!  Does that make me a Turkey?  LOL  You can't see the words in this picture very well but it says happy harvest.  He is a cute Turkey but I kindof messed up with the jell pen.  So I am so so happy with this one.    I really want to make some true fall cards not thanksgiving cards soon!


My Creative time Challlenge "Princess"

I am having a great weekend in my craft room!  I made this card yest. with a video....However I am having some serious tech difficulty with the video.  Every time I render it it comes with a Blue line across the bottom half of the screen.   I seem to remember last time this happened we had to format my video first before putting it into movie maker but for the life within me I can't remember how:(  And my husband is out of pocket today....So I decided to go ahead and post the picture now and have a video for you later.  If any of you have any suggestions please let me know.  I would love to get it done today.  I hope to have some more projects posted later tonight and maybe tomorrow.  I would like to make some fall cards and I need to get some more everyday cards done.   Have a great weekend everyone!

Please have a look around my blog and leave comments.  I love your comments!  I love hearing from you!


Thanks A Bunch

This is a card I made for my boss and his wife.  They took our whole office to a fund raiser benefit with Charlie Pried has the entertainer.  There were 10 of us at our table and we had a great time.  It was fun to dress up and the food was great.  Wonderful evening out.  I made this card using cricut create.  I think I cut it at 4 1/4 but I am not sure.  I had the stamp that says thanks a bunch and added the bananas. It didn't come out so good in the picture.  I used my cuddle bug to emboss the back ground.  I am really loving in the cuddle bug.  I waited a year to get it 1/2 off and am glad I finally got it.

This was a fun card to make for such a fun evening!

Wed update

The week goes by so fast.  This is going to be a busy last half of the week for me.  Tomorrow night I have a work thing.  Friday night the football game and 5th quarter.  I hope to have some time this weekend to work on some craft projects.  I have so many things that need done that I don't know where to begin.  I would like to make Christmas cards this year so I really need to get started on that.  I also have some photo album work that I need to get done for some people.  Not to mention my own.  I would also like to get some dinner invitations sent out.  I have always wanted to do a mystery dinner but never got around to it.  Several years ago my sister gave me a kit but I never really looked at it.  I would like to see if I can't figure that out as well.  I seriously would someday like to make another video.  I know I say that all the time but have not gotten it done.  Hope everyone has a great last 1/2 of a week.

God Bless


I have attached a quick card I made the other day.  I used some stamps from  stampin up and it is pretty simple.

A "Man" Card!

It is my goal to finish a couple challenges this weekend and to try to do another video at some point. I love doing video's but they are very time consuming and time is just something I don't seem to have enough of. hmmmmm I doubt I'm the only one:) Anyway thought I would try to post a card everyday this weekend. So here is my first. This stamp was given to my by my sister-in-law. THANKYOU ALLISON I LOVE IT! I'm not sure where she got it from but my husband uses duck tape for everything. He is constantly made fun of because he even carries some in his wallet. It is kind of funny that the same people who make fun of him are the ones that will come and say, Do you have some duck tape in your wallet still, I need it for ....." anyway I hope you enjoy this one. As always I love comments so if you stop by please leave me a comment. Even if you don't like my blog I am always open to good comments and constructive criticism.

Thank you and have a blessed day!

My Creative Time Throwback Thursday Challenge

Wow it has been awhile since I have done a challenge. This weeks challenge was back to school using the Paisley Cartridge. I don't have the paisley cartridge so I used Locker Talk. I made this card for a teacher friend who is starting school. I just wanted to let her know I was thinking about her as she enters a new year.

Mystery Dinner

I had the most fun with a some friends of ours 9 year old triplets. They came and hung out with me yest while there mom was working and we planned a big dinner for her when she came to pick them up. It was soooo much fun. First the girls picked the name Mystery Italian restaurant. Each one of them made a sign with one of the 3 words. They also made 4 cards. One for appetizer, main course, dessert and salad. We then decorated the dining room like an Italian restaurant and had music playing in the background. Ok here's how it went down. First the 4 cards were part of the centerpiece and there mom had to pick a card and that decided what we were going to eat. Each girl too turns serving and when it was time to serve they wore an apron. It was a lot of fun. We ate in this order. Appetizer, main course, dessert and salad. A lot of fun was had by all. We had for an appetizer some sausage and cheese wrapped in croissants, cheese raviolis, Cesear salad and Texas sheet cake all of which the girls also made. Now for the bad news I didn't get any pictures and their signs and cards turned out sooooo nice. I am going to try to get some pictures to post later from there mom. Here are a couple of pictures of us making things. My room is now a mess and may take a year to get put back together but it was so much fun.
