Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving to all the American bloggers.  Hope your getting you fill of turkey and my fave pumpkin pie. 
Last week I went to a class at our craft store.  We made this cute Countdown to Christmas Box.  Each drawer slides out to reveal a little surprise.  I just finished my box last night, now I have the big job of finding stuff to go inside. 
The kids got their report cards yesterday.  They both did really well.  Sam the usual A's and a couple B's.  She's proud she got her first A+.  Grant blew me away, he's always been B's and C's which is really good for him.  Reading and writting is very hard for him reflecting the C mark, but math and science was an A.  Amazing. 
Trying to get back into making cards.  I've had a little break since been so busy getting ready for the sale last weekend.  I haven't done one challenge this week. 

Happy Crafting ;o)

Happy Birthday to me

Happy Birthday to me tomorrow.  The kids look forward to my birthday every year.  They take me out the have Chinese Buffet.  They love it. 
Tonight is the last night I have to get all my cards made.  Tomorrow night I will have to pack them up to go to the sale on Saturday. Sam has been madly beading bracelets and necklaces that she will sell.  It should be a fun day.
Here are two more of my 3D images.  They are just the cutest.  They come in pieces that you layer together, and are made by Reddy Creative Cards.
The sketch I followed was from Scrap n Stamp #1 November Challenge.

Here is the sketch.

It's all a glitter

Wow sparkley.  I've taken a brake from Christmas to do this weeks Cute Card Thursday-Challenge 86-Glitter me Silly.  I like glitter.
I used the cuttlebug rose die as a template, masking off the individual colors.  The sketch came from pagemaps. 

It's back to Christmas tonight.  I have a couple more 3D images I've picked up.  I have a craft sale on Saturday, so I have to have everything done this week.

Happy crafting ;o)

Rememberance Day

Today is Rememberance Day and thinking of those of you in  US Independance Day. We had our moment of silence at work at 11am.  To remember all the men and women who have and are out there fighting for us.  I lost a great uncle in WW1.  I treasure all his medals that we have tucked away safe. 

My card today is for Cupcake Craft Challenge-65-Snow Much.  You were to make a card that features Fun Snow.  The sketch is from Card Paterns-Sketch 40.  I really enjoy their sketchs.

Here is the sketch.

Little Red Wagon

Wow am I tired.  Today was a beautiful sunny Sunday. Yard work time before the snow comes.  I really hate pine trees.  They are sooo messy.  But a small part of the lawn is raked.  Onto the card. 
This week Lil Red Wagon held thier first challenge.  You were to use your packaging on your project.  I thought I was going to have to go buy something, because I throw out my packaging.  But I bought a pack of buttons last week and it was still sitting on my desk.  I even used a couple of the buttons. 

Here is the package.

Page Maps

Today I'm posting a scrapbook page for Page Maps latest challenge.  When I saw the sketch I just knew what I wanted to do.  I had the paper set aside just waiting for a page like this.  It is hard to see in the picture, the green across the page are oak leaves that I stamped and cut out.  The title is chipboard that I cut on the cuttlebug (this is the first time I have tried chipboard in the cuttlebug, it works well).  Hope you enjoy.

Here is the sketch.

Morning everyone.  Just a quick post before I'm off to work.  Sent the kids off to school this morning and it was raining.  Just looked out the window and it's snowing.  I'll have to drop mitts off at the school on my way to work.
Last night I made a card for two challenges, when I should have been doing cards for an order. (Me bad)  The sketch is from Card Patterns-Sketch 39.
It also qualifies for Crafty Cardmakers-Challenge 7. Their challenge was to include stamping somewhere on your design.  I've had this stamp for a while and haven't had a chance to use it.  I embossed it in black, and stamped a second one coloring it and cutting out to place on top with a dimension.

Here is the sketch.

Hope everyone has a great day ;0)

Happy Monday

Hope everyone enjoyed their Halloween.  Our kids had fun and only had a short sprinkle of rain.  I'm enjoying a Monday home by myself today.  I've canned all our tomatoes that have finally ripened. Laundry is in progress, I've finished three cards for an order.  I cut them all out last night and just had to assemble today, and this card as well.  It doesn't apply to any challenge, but I've enjoyed making it.  It is another of the 3D images I picked up.  I have one more christmas one to do. 

Enjoy your day, have to go and get ready. Kids will be home soon and it's off to the doctor to have my daughters worts treated, and then it's off to parent council meeting at our school.  The guest speaker is an old teacher from the school to give a history of the school. It's our 50th anniversary this year.
