Christmas time is fast approaching.....

Are you ready? Have you had time to get everything done? Is all your shopping done? I am almost done, just need to get one or two things for both the kids, and then do the stocking stuffers for the kids, hubby, the dog and two newest members, the rats. Yes we finally got them! Would you like to see them? Here they are. They are both males and we named them Freddie (white and beige/brown) and Buddie (grey and white). Warning you are about to experience major cuteness!!!

I love them they are already starting to show their own little personalities, and they are both very affectionate and snugly!

Now onto our Final challenge of  2012 over at Fab'n'Funky. This week the challenge will run until the new year. Our team will be taking a well needed break!

Our theme for this week is to use RIBBON or LACE on your project.
Here is what I came up with. I made a cute little gift card holder for my daughter's teacher this year. It is made out of Toilet Paper rolls and hold three  Gift Cards. When you untie the ribbon and pull both ends up, it pulls the GC out of the tube. I had so much making this. I know I will be making some more of these for next year. They are so easy and what a great way to give GCs!!

I hope you can join us this week. You know we love to see your wonderful creations!

Hope you all have a wonderful Christmas!!!!

one last Halloween card...

Good day everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful day, and not getting too wet! We are not having the most wonderful weather for Halloween, It has been wet and cold. :o(

Well this week over at Fab'n'Funky our Challenge is to use some Die Cuts or Punches! So I pulled out three of my punches and went to town with this card.

Hope you like it. The image is from Sassy Designs (it was a Friday Freebie) and coloured with my Copics. The Pattern paper (green) can you believe it came from some scraps of my Christmas pack!! I hand drew the web on the cardstock and then embossed with my stylus and inked the raised image with some white chalk ink!

I know that I wanted to enter this one in a couple of challenges, but alas I have lost my list! Oh well next time I will get to them.

Have a great Halloween everyone!!!

OH yes! Before I forget I just wanted to remind everyone of our Birthday Celebration at Fab'n'Funky in November! Be sure to come join us, It will be loads of fun and there are LOADS of prizes to be won as well!!!!

Our lovely sponsors were generous enough to let us play with some of their stamps this week. (Crimson Cloud and Digi Darla Designs (images))

Here is what I came up with ! I loved this image, so cute!!!

Orange and black +1.....

Yes that is our theme this week over atFab'n'Funky! We want to see some Orange, Black and one other colour.

I chose to go with Green. (Yes there is some purple in the image, but I only used orange, black and green papers!!! LOL!)

No I must apologize for the late entry, I have been having some major issues with Blogger as of late, and have been having some difficulty posting and editing! Grrrrr! But it seems that some of it has been fixed, so I am able to post now.

So here is my card:

The digi stamps are from our Sponsor over at Pink Cat Studios.

Hope you can join us this, we love to see what you do!

Vintage......I hope!!!

Hello and Welcome once again this week! It is my turn to host the challenge over at Fab'n'Funky. This week our sponsor is Flonzcraft. They have such beautiful stamps! While looking at their stamps, I noticed that they were really Vintage looking. So I decided to go with that for our theme this week!

Well I must tell you, that I must have been higher than a kite, or really sick when I chose this theme, cause if you have been following me for a while you will have noticed that I DON'T DO VINTAGE!!!!

So I created a real challenge for myself this week! But I think I did OK! Take a look and let me know what you think. I coloured the image up with some Copics to try and make it look old and Vintage like. then I covered it with some diamond glaze, I was trying to make it look like an old broach. Then I distressed the edges of my Pattern Papers.

Take look.  I let me know what you think!

Do you think I got it or missed did I completely miss the mark?

Hope you can join us over at Fab'n'Funky! We love to see your creations!

I am back at work, the kids back in school and this weeks challenge is up at Fab'n'Funky! What could we ask for!!! LOL!

Sorry if you stopped by last week to see my card, but for some reason, blogger did not post my scheduled posting, and I did not have the chance to stop by last week to see that it was posted.

But hopefully this week you will be able to see it!

This week our challenge was "Fall Harvest"  We also got to play with some of the stamps from Digi Doodle. I have used two of their stamps on the card, "Turkey in disguise" and "Corn Stalk". I decided to keep it pretty simple seeing that the image is somewhat busy!

Happy Birthday Baby Girl!!

I actually had a little time to myself this week and took full advantage of it! I made some cards! I have a habit of getting up every morning, going to the PC, browsing through a whole bunch of challenge sites, and writing down all the challenges! But even though I have every intention of getting to these said challenges, they sit on my desk and another week goes by without me doing one of them! Well not this week! I made sure to tackle some of them!!!

So here are my cards!

The first one, I have been drooling over all the cards on the net that have been coloured on Kraft card stock. I love the effect! So I had to give it a try. I think I need a little more practice. The colours really do work differently on Kraft!

Here is a close up of the image.

Challenges entered for this card are:
Brown Sugar: Occupation ( not really sure if this qualifies, but they are cooking up a Cherry Pie! LOL)

My second card is one for my Christmas stash! I figured I had better get going on that! Christmas has a tendency to creep on me!

Challenges entered for this card:
Winter Wonderland: Red and Green
Diva's by Design:Anything Goes
Whimsy:Lots of Layers
Cute card Thursday: Bling (her coat and hat)
