Bugaboo & St Patrick's

Hello.  How is everyone's week going?  It is Hump day and I am so looking forward to the weekend.

I am still trying to finish up a few St. Patrick's Day cards.  This image is one of my favorite Bugaboo images.  The little bear is so cute. I just want to hug him.

As always, I am never going to get everything made that I want to, but there is always next year.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Catch The Bug - All Creatures Big and Small
   Cut It Up - Digitally Yours
   Di's Digital - Use Lots of Green
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes

Chat with you later.  Have a great evening.

St Patrick's Day

Hello.  How are you today?  Do you change your chocks for daylight savings?  It is just a USA thing?  Any way, we do.  Normally, it isn't a big deal to me, but my husband and I was up late last night watching a movie and then I lost an hour and I am dragging today.  Oh well, that is way things go some times.

At the beginning of the year, I pulled out my Top Note die from Sizzix/Stampin Up.  I loved it when it came out, but I haven't used it in a while.  I want to use it some this year.  This is the second time, I have used it already and there is just so much you can use it for.

My husband and I are not Irish, but I am a crafter and I just have to make some St. Patrick's Day things.  So I cut out some top note die cuts and made these cute nugget holders.  I went ahead and cut out some for Valentine's, Easter,  Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas, so you will see them again.

Off to put up my scrap paper.  The pile is getting pretty big.  Chat with you later.

Hello and welcome sunshine.  It is cold outside but the sun is out and it makes it look like a gorgeous day.  I just need to stay inside.

A couple of weeks ago, I pulled out my Denami Stamps.  Once upon a time, I loved the little chickies (ok, I admit it, I still love them).  I have so many of them.  I really need to use them more often.  You should see  a few more over then next few weeks.  I have the Easter ones sitting here.

It is hard to see in the picture but I added some glitter to each of the chickies.  I don't cover the whole chick, just the edge.  I don't like to clover their whole faces. 

There are lots of layers of green and yellow to match the plaid.  I tend to do lots of layers.  I just love all of the different colors you can add to a card with just layers.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Di's Digital Challenges - Lots of Green
   Die Cuttin Divas - Use Green
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   Creative Knockouts - Anything Goes
   As You Like It - Single or Mult Layers
Well off to vacuum the house.  Chat with you a little later.  Have a great afternoon.


Weekend means play time

Hello and welcome to the weekend.  I hope to have lots of time play this weekend.  We will see.

I have been terrible about making treats for everyone at work, so I decided to put some thing together for St. Patrick's Day.  No one will be expecting it.  I have a ton of these tubes so I thought I would use some of them up.  I left it simple.  I cut different size clovers out of vinyl and stuck them all over the tubes.  Each tube has smarties in them.

I think everyone will enjoy them.  Chat with you later today.  Have a great day and weekend.

Lawn Fawn

Hello.  One more.  I have had this one on my desk for a little while.  I just didn't know what sentiment to put on it.

I decided to use one from My Craft Spot (I so miss her shop).  It just simply says.  Have A Hoot.  On the inside I put Happy Birthday.  Not what I was looking for but my mind was blank on what to put on it.

The stamp is a Lawn Fawn.  I just love their stamps with matching thin cuts.  I used my wood texture folder to make the tree.  Then I sponged an orange brown inside the circle to represent the inside of the tree.

I am using this for the following challenges:
   Alphabet Challenge - Y is Your Choice
   Creative Knockouts - Dies and/or Punches
   Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
   Lawn Fawn - Fun With Dies

This is probably it for tonight.  I hope to see you tomorrow.  Have a great evening.

Back again

Hello.  I am back again.  I am working on cleaning off my desk. 

This card has been sitting on it, waiting on me to make the post so I can send it to my son.  I am not good at coloring dogs but I like to make one from time to time to send to my son.  I left this one white with some gray shading.  The stamp is part of the Tim Holtz/Sizzix Dog Talk Set.  It is such a cute set.  I really need to use it more often.

The paper is a digital  paper from Happy Heart Studio from Etsy.  I just love her paper.  It is so affordable and prints great.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Craft Challenge - Anything Goes
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes + Sentiment
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes

Off to see what else I can find on my desk and craft table.  Chat with you later.


Hello and Happy Friday.  I am still trying to get over my cold and sinus infection but I am determined to get a few things done today.  On the top of my list is getting my desk and craft table cleaned off.  It doing that I will probably get a list of other things I want to do but I have got to start somewhere.

My sister called the other night and wanted to make something.  She hadn't made any St. Patrick's Day cards so we decided one this corner box card.   It is the first time, I have made a corner one and it came out pretty good.  You have to be careful when you glue the inside pieces together.  If you are off, the least little bit, it doesn't fold correctly.  Or at least that is what I think.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   Craft Challenge - Anything  Goes
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes

Off to work on my desk.  Hopefully I will be back later  with something else.
