So excited about his one!

I have had this idea in my head for some time! I think that I saw something like this in one of the craft magazines but I can not be sure which one. I got these glasses at target in the $ spot and just knew what to do with them right off! Although it has taken me months to do it LOL!

The card is 6x6, with the box being just a tad bigger. I used the treading water punch on the side of the card. The box was made using CDS (I am so in love with right now!) the paper is from a Heidi Swapp stack I got at Costco (this paper is great get you some if you can!) I used some Prima's an old button, some beads, Skittles and fuzzy yarn this was a lot of fun to make! Oh and the inside is from the computer and then I used the threading water punch again. It is hard to tell from the pix but there is acetate inside the circle on the front If you have any questions feel free to ask! Thanks for looking

Witch Sign

Ok this came to me in several ways. I have seen signs like this and though they were cute. Then the great Regina Easter made her "the witch is in" card with the broom and boom the idea hit me! So I made this sign that I am going to post in my Etsy store (I have been so bad lately no new stuff) I also will have all the stuff with me when I go to River Fest next month.

The Broom is cut at 17 inches (got to love the expressions!) the words are OA then the stamps are Inkadinkado on the "OUT" side oh and darn it I am not sure what the others are I take them all out of the wrappers to store them I guess I need to write the name of them on there so that I know sorry. I used some Ribbon and stickles and jute lots of ink and some chip board for sturdiness!

Halloween Fun

I am sure that I am not alone here but I just love Halloween! To have a day to be someone else and to just get lost if then fun and imagination with a plus of tons of candy is just the best! I also just love all the decorations and colors of fall they are just so rich. So it is not hard for me to get into crafts for this fun fun holiday!

I made this card with the intentions of being able to use the sign. So I used and old button with the great little clip on the back side so that you could take the sign "off the hook" So it makes it a fun card to send cause they can use the little sign for years to come!

Since I was on a roll and I have to say love little ghosty's I came up with this cute little Boo sign. I used round coasters and cut the letters from Micky and Friends. I then cut the little ghosts from Paper dolls dress up in shrink plastic to make the cute little charms I love the way that this came out and already have idea for the next sign that i am going to make!

Small Birthday card set

Ok so when my mom was cleaning out some of her crafts she had a bunch of these little wooden items so I took them figuring that I could use them for something. So this is what I came up with for this little wooden "bag" I really like how it turned out. I used Basic Grey sublime paper (which I love!) then made four 3x3 cards to go inside. I used a set of birthday stamps that I had (sorry do not remember the name) it was a fun little project

Cowboy matel clock

Ok so I made this second clock that is a mantel clock with the same Stampin Up stamps with plans to take it to River Fest. Then a good friend came over and decided to buy it before I could even take pictures of it! So I took a few before she left;) I thought that I would still share it with you all cause I really liked how this came out. I have another clock like this one to do still and am not sure if I am going to go in the same direction or not, but i do know that I am going to do something with it before River Fest

check it out

Coaster board frame

Ok so I got these coaster board squares and thought that they might make a good frame.I figured that this would be great for those smaller pictures that we all have laying around, and when you get tried of one side you flip it over. What do you all think?

Halloween cards

I love Halloween, it is one of my top 2 holidays! and I have collected a few stamps, and paper so I thought that I should put them to some good use.

Baby Card

I thought this was a cute stamp and so true!

The inside says congrats

Just Because

I saw these stamps and just had to have them! I like the way this card came out. it is a great card to send a girlfriend just because you are thinking about her. I used the Cricut for the circles and the DS for the scalloped one. The second one would make a great dinner invite or girls night out. And finally I think this may be my favorite the sweet puppy who has a complete understanding of how we all feel!

Cowboy clock

I got this clock at Micheal's for a steal but it was a little messed up so I cleaned it up changed the colors painted it and stamped it this is what I came up with let me know what you think. This will be one of my items for sale at the River fest. There will be more things to come since that is a big part of what I am going to be doing for the next few weeks.

I wanted to share this with all of my friends on the net. I am going to be posting things for this over the next few weeks. I hope if any of you are in the area you stop by and say hi! I have never been to this before and am going to be sharing a booth with a good friend that has tons of great stuff too. I am told that this is a lot of fun and is so beautiful there along the river it is worth the trip just to see the river!
