Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday's Week #4 Challenge

I made this Snowman ornament for Peachy Keen Let's Face it Friday's Week #4 challenge

It was super easy.  I don't have any of the snowmen faces but I do have some snowmen from Peachy Keen so I just used my markers to highlight the face part of the stamp and added it to this cute snowman. used white ribbon to attach the three circles and the top hat I cut from Everyday Paperdolls.  A few buttons some more ribbon and there you have a cute little Christmas ornament.  This would be a GREAT Project for the kids to make for their Grandparents, Aunts and uncles ext.

Well I am off to make a bunch of cookies for our trunk and treat tomorrow night after church. 

IT'S FALL Y'ALL!!!!!  I love this time of year!

God Bless,

PS, Sorry about the blurry picture.  I had to use my cell phone.  Someone (I'm not going to say who because I was the last one with our camera) lost the camera :(

Creative time with Emma Challenge

Today's challenge was to use Celebrations and make a Christmas card.  Well I don't have Celebrations so I pulled out Doodle Charms and this is what I ended up with.  Happy Holiday's  and the eyes and mouth are both stamped using Peachy Keen stamps and I used my cuddle bug to emboss the snowflakes and Santa's beard.  this cute ribbon I found at Micheal's.   I used Stampin up punches to cut the red and white ovals at the bottom for the words Happy Holiday's.

If you wander why I haven't posted in awhile please read my last couple posts on my blog :)

HO HO HO the Holiday's are upon us!!!

Working hard!

Ok my friends.  Please stick with me while I am under construction.  I am really missing my creating right now.  We are busy this weekend moving things around in the house to get it ready for Fostering.  We have agreed to take up to 4 children so currently have a guest bedroom and my craft room that we are converting into two children bedrooms.  I can't believe all the stuff I am having to go through to downsize in my craft room.  I have so many things I bought when I started scrap booking that I no longer use.  I think I will donate some of it to our church.  I am really glad I am doing this because I think it will free me up to do more.  Sometimes we get bogged down with all the stuff!  I am also going through a ton of cloths that I am going to get rid of.  Our church collects clothes and household items and give it to a organization that helps Single mothers in need.  So Another great opportunity to get rid of stuff and help others.   This purging is really exciting.  We are collectors so I am very glad to be getting rid of stuff.  So I hope to be back up and posting soon!

Hi everyone,
I'm sorry I have not posted anything in the last week.  I had a great weekend with the sister-in-laws in Arlington weekend before last.  We went to a card making class at Jennifer's house and I have 4 really cool cards to show you that we made there.  I will also post a link to her blog when I add the pictures.  Things have been so busy around here since I got back.  It is amazing how much I must really get done over the weekend.  I didn't have much time around the house this past weekend either.  I am also starting to box up my craft room and move it into our bedroom.  So the downsizing begins.  I would love someones input on how to go about doing this.  So if you have ever moved your craft room from a full room to small corner of a room please let me know the process you went through.  Having said that I am soooooooooooo excited to be doing this.  Crazy right?  Well we have started the process of fostering to adopt and we need to get the rooms set up for the Home study.  I can't tell you how super excited I am to be finally in this place.  My husband and I have waited almost 20 years for this.  So I can honestly say I am excited about giving up my craft room.  I will try to post later tonight or later this week the cards that we made last weekend and link to Jennifer's web page.  Also please add My husband and I to your prayer list as we begin this process and pray for all the abused and neglected children and their parents that are out there.  It would obviously be our hope that no children and parents would find themselves in the situation that leads to having children removed from a home but it happens and as always the best result would be for the family to be healed and reunited.  This just isn't always possible and I believe these children deserve a loving home to grow up in.

God bless,

Princess birthday card

 I made this card for a little girl at church.
She was turning 3 and like most little girls she was into princesses.  I used everyday paper dolls and cut out the doll and the princess doll clothes.  I used my peachy keen everyday faces for her face.  
 This was a slider card so I hope she didn't break it.  I don't know, maybe because I was in a hurry I had a hard time getting the sliding to work correctly.  She seemed to like it.
 This frog is from create a critter.  I think he turned out soooooo super cute!  I know he will show up on some other cards for sure.  I used some eyes from the stamp set from peachy keen that goes with this cart.  I had to stamp one eye at a time but I think they turned out great.  Hoppy Birthday is from one of My Pink Stamper stamp set.  I am going to love her stamps such great sayings.  I need to get more :)
This is the front of the card.  I got the castle from My paper dolls cart as well.  I don't know if I should admit this but it wasn't until our little friends dad said look the princess and the frog are going back into the castle.  That that even occurred to me.   LOL It worked out great!  Hope you enjoyed this Slider card.  It was fun to make.   Would love to hear from you all and know what you think about this card.  If you have time please leave a comment.  Have a great day!
