Quick and Simple

Hello again.  I have a really quick and simple one for you.  The other day when I pulled out my glitter folder, I noticed I had a lot of red scraps.  I told myself, I would go back and use them for a Valentine's Day card.  Today was that day.

I used a die on the heart and the rose.  The Be Mine is from the Silhouette store.  I glued every thing together and there you have one quick and simple card.

I am using it in the following challenges:
   A Gem of a Challenge - Happy Anything
   CAS on Sunday - Love

I don't know if I will be back tonight or not.  If not, have a great night.  Chat with you later.


Hello.  How are all of you?  I forgot to post my card yesterday.  How did I forget?  I even took the picture.  Oh well, here it is.

Yesterday, I wanted to do something with my Silhouette.  I made this card years ago for my son and I decided to make it again.  When I made it for him, I used a gray background instead of white.  And on the USB stick I put an Alabama A.  Yesterday, I just used the heart that came with it. You can find the file here.

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Dream Valley - Anything Goes #170
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes #358

Off to play around.  Chat with you later.

Snow Day - Official Over

Hello again.   I did make it back tonight (or is it morning since it is now 1:30 am).  Here is the picture of my cleaned off table.  As I said earlier, I didn't get every thing done but the table looks clean and I have room to work now.

I left my next few projects on my work area. 
     1)   I want to put the candy on the snowman toppers.  I need them for next Saturday. 
     2)   I made the cute little Doodlebug coffee cups and I need to use them.
     3)   I saved the circles from the swing card and I thought I would use the bear and make some Christmas tags.
     4)   I want to make a couple of the Valentine's cards.

I don't think I will get any thing done tomorrow.  My husband and I are going to be out and about tomorrow.  Just spending the day together.

Chat with you later.  Have a good night.  Sleep tight and don't let those bed bugs bite.

Snow Day Part 3

Hello again.  Well this is the last one for today.  I forgot tonight was Game Night so I didn't get as much craft time as I was thinking.  But that is okay.  Game Night is always fun.

I worked on this card most of the afternoon. Even though, I had all the bears and pieces stamped and cut.  I still had to cut all of the card pieces including the mountain tops.  It took a long time, but it was worth it.  This is going to be one of my favorite cards for the year, I think.

I got the idea for the card from here.  I did make a few changes to make it mine.  All of the stamps come from the Beary Happy Holidays set from Lawn Fawn.  I cut the mountain tops from Silhouette Online along with the snow base.  The card is also from Silhouette Online.  I sized it down to fit two cards on a page.

This is just the cutest card.  If anyone from Lawn Fawn see this, thank you so much for the idea.  I just love it.  I am so glad I bought this set a couple of weeks ago.

I am using the card in the following challenges:
   Catch The Bug - Anything Goes
   Simon Says Monday - Winter Blues
   Paper Shelter - New Beginnings
   Cupcake Inspiration - Winter
   The Cat's Pajamas - Make A Scene

I will post a picture of my table either later tonight or tomorrow morning.  I didn't get as much done as I wanted but it does look better.

Chat at you later.  Have a great night.

Snow Day Part 2

Hello again.  It has been a couple hours and I have a few things done.  I got several of the bulky things off my table.  My last card project is all cleaned up and put away.  I can actually see my table in spots.

I made this card last week and never posted it.  I love this style.  I have the pattern in a birthday pattern too.  Maybe I will make some of them after Valentines.   It doesn't leave a lot of room to write a note but I just think it is unique.

You can find the pattern over at Silhouette Online.  It is just a quick and cute card to put together.  One thing, I did different.  Instead of cutting pieces to go under the card.  I cut one long stripe.  I just like it a little better that way.

I added the flower/swirl texture to the big heart.  I thought about putting gems on it but I didn't not to.  I didn't have enough of the heart background paper so the last few had a different pattern. 

I am going to use this in the following challenges:
   City Crafters - All You Need Is Love
   Simon Says Wednesday - Use Pattern Paper
   As You Like It - Anything Goes
   Creative Knockouts - Anything Goes

Well off to work on something else.  Have a great day and I will chat with you later.

Snow Day

Hello.  How are all of you.?  It is a snow day here in Adrian.  I spent the morning finishing a book and straighten the bedroom and bath.  Now I am in my craft room.  It is a mess.   I have so many projects to finish up.

Here is a picture of my table.  I am determined to get in cleaned off and several of the projects finished and moved off the table.   So come back off and on today and see what kind of progress I make.  Plus hopefully, I will have several projects to show you.

I have finished the skating bear so I am going to clean up all of that mess and then move on to a step card using the same
stamp set.  I don't usually do that but I have several cards I want to make with this set.  Usually I put the set up and tell myself I will come back to it.  Sometimes I do and others I don't so I am just going to make the cards now.

Have a great afternoon.  Chat with you all in a little while.

Lawn Fawn Beary Happy Holidays

Hello again.  I have had this new set sitting on my desk for several weeks.  I have a couple of cards, I want to make from it.  I stamped and cut all the pieces out earlier.  After dinner, I sat down and made this one.

I just love using the bear as a front and back swing.  He is just to cute.  All of the samples of this card that I saw online used a Christmas sentiment.  My sister used a Valentine's one, but I want a every day one so I could send it to some friends.

The Snow day came from Silhouette Online and the two snowflakes are punches.  I even used a standard scalloped circle die instead of cutting it with my silhouette.  I wanted to make sure all the layers were layered in the right spot.  I like the silver glitter paper layer. 

I am going to use it in the following challenges:
   Dies R Us - Anything Goes
   Crafty Sentiments - Anything Goes
   Tuesday Throwdown - Layer It Up
   Cute Card Thursday - Something New
   CAS-usal Fridays - All That Glitter

I really wanted to get both cards done but it is late and I have to work tomorrow.  Have a great night and I will catch you after work tomorrow.
