(How sweet is that!)... So you no where I'll be on-line shopping lots of sales going on this weekend!...And I will be in my craft room with peace and quiet catching up with lots of my projects.... Woo hoo!
So here is another card that I did last night and wanted to share with you all.. This is from Daisy & Friends and I really like all the images that Whoopsi Daisy puts out... The papers I used is from a blog candy I won CTMH(Close to my Heart) it's almost like a Stampin Up site, also Spellbinder's Label Ten, corner dies and sentiment from Kaiser Craft.  Easy Peasy!

Enjoy your holiday weekend - and keep safe!

2013 Calendar!

Hello all my crafty friends~
Today I want to share what I'm working in between tons of projects and it's prepping my 2013 calendars that I need to make for the new year.  This first set is going to be mines and it's going to sitting right on my computer stand.  LOL!  I decided that I didn't want to make one of those easel cards and tack down the whole pad of calendars like I did last year..  I'm taking it up another notch by working each month differently and probably go with the theme of  each month and making  it more interesting.  Let me tell you I got quite a bunch to make, my hubby thinks I won't get them all done on time.   We have a small bet going on, hehe!  If I win, I will let you all know by mid December....Oh boy, that means I will have to get at least 5  yearly calendars completed by each month.  I'm already two weeks behind on  schedule- yikes!.
Any who like I mentioned each month will have a different theme so for my first month I decided to use  Sister Stamps (Firecrackers) and I believe 2013 is year of the Snake. I thought this stamp was appropriate because it signifies popping firecrackers chasing away the bad and bringing in the good.   Those cuties were inked up with Spectrum Noir, and copics and I had their outfits paper piece, corner banner by C.C. Designs, lazer cut sakura flowers from Island Scrapbooking, O-rings, Crop-A-Dile to punch out my eyelets and pop up dots.
I will show you each month as I get them done, next will be February (Hearts) for Valentine's - yeah!

FYI - The images are popped off the firecracker !
They looked so cute in real~

I hope I've inspired some of you - I'm not going to procrastinate like I did last year scrambling to finish all my projects , the way the days are flying pass us I'm already prepping...

Thanks for stopping by and peeking in!
Enjoy the rest of your day/evening...

Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter’s love for the arts and crafts. It was started a little over 3 years ago with a little more than 100 stamps, and has since then grown to almost 500 stamps. Joy (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy (aka/daughter) loves the “fun side of life”, and create images with a cartoon flair. Having these two complimenting styles have enabled Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.

Here is my card for this challenge:

Magazine card holder!

2nd post!

Hello all my crafty blogging buddies!
I've been surfing the web looking for ideas to make for the upcoming holidays, I came across this tutorial for this cute magazine card holder so I decided to make one this morning.. I'm sure their must be a lot of you out there that has so many cards that you don't know what to do with them... Some may have been sitting in your Etsy stores for quite some time, or maybe on EBay, trying to sell them but having no luck well I'm one of them.  LOL!
So I came up with this cute idea,  my family and close friends love hand made cards so I decided I will be making these magazine card holders and give them cards for all different occasions that way they can either keep it  for themselves or give them away with their gift giving...  It was simple and really fast to put together.  So for my first one I will consider this a trial and error... So now that I have mastered this, I can start planning going forward... They are sturdy and also make cute holders to put on your desk too.    This magazine holder can fit up to 6 - 8 cards and envelopes , well I take it back if you put a lot of embellies on them then you will have to make that  determination.  For my posting on this I have (8) cards and (8) envelopes a total of 16 that fits in here.  We both have big families on both sides, so counting my cards and card holders I sure can  deplete my stack of cards to a worthy cause to give away  to our family members.... Now, doesn't this make pure sense!  Instead of hoarding  they will be put to good use... Yeah, I know it's hard to part with those cards, especially putting all that hard work to it all.   I would rather see my cards make some body smile, giggle, or shed a tear.   Okay enough of me babbling!
Let me get to my project, so I just used previous cards that I made recently just to see what they would  look like in this holder.   It's called a sample so you all can see the picture.  I used K & Co. on the papers, Martha Stewart border punch, lace, liquid pearls,  sentiment from SOG  and Spellbinders die.  BTW these are A2 cards.

I hope this inspired you to make one too... Decorate it and put it in a clear poly bag wrapped with a beautiful tag and ribbon.   I bet I got all of you thinking now!  hehe....
Thanks for peeking in and enjoy your new work week and some quality craft time too!
