Many Thanks

Hi Everyone!
How are you? What's your weather like? Mine is raining! I'm loving it right now as I have the fireplace on and cozy socks and getting ready to bake. I ended up not having to work :) so that makes it even better! However, if I actually had to be out in it, I would probably feel different :) 
So I though I would get a jump start on the thank you cards as I'm sure they will come in handy after the Holiday.
This adorable die cut is from My Creative Time. These dies have been sitting in the package and shame on me I forgot I had them.

Cards - 4.25"
Paper - K& Co. & Recollections

Thanksgiving - Home Decor

Hi Everyone!

WOW oh WOW time is flying...... I have a home decor project to share today.  Do you have paper that seems too large for the background of cards? Do you love subway art? Well, my answer was yes to both so I created this super simple and fun HD project!
I simply cut the paper to fit the wood board and stitched all the way around.

I added some leaves using My Creative Time - Piles Of Smiles Stamps & Dies distressed the edges and threw a coat of Mod podge on it and there you have a very SIMPLE & EASY Home decor item for your table of wall.

Give Thanks!

Hi Everyone!
I sure hope you are all enjoying your day! It's a three day weekend for us so we have been relaxing from our crazy busy weekend. My son's soccer team made it to the beach cup finals so we had 3 games (yes three) this weekend. We are in 2nd place so it's been super fun but I have to say I was looking forward to having a little time off before we start basketball. Oh well:) 
I had just a enough time today to put together a Thanksgiving card for a few challenges. Have a GREAT day everyone!

Autumn Greetings

Hi Everyone!

Hope you are enjoying your week! My seminar was canceled so I have been enjoying two days off and have been able to catch up on everything! Boy, it feels good. Wow, I even cleaned out my closet.
So I have had lots of creative time and here is an Autumn card that I put together for a few challenges.

This little stamp was $1 at Micheal's. I fussy cut him and can I just applaud all of you that fussy cut! Boy does it sure take some patience. I colored him with my copics and as you can see I sure need practice on shading/blending whew a lot of practice :)

The shape card was created in my gypsy using a flower cut from the Bloom Cartridge

Halloween Pencil Holders

Hi Everyone!

I know Halloween is over but I never shared the treats I made for my sons class. Our teacher was really enforcing the district healthy snack program and with all the food allergies I thought pencils were the easiest way to go! 
I hope everyone is well and having a GREAT Friday! 
 This set was for the Girls!

And this set was for the boys!

The holders measure approx 8" I found the tutorial HERE
Paper - Recollections
The die cuts are from a Cuttlebug die I've had for years
Ribbon - Micheals
