Hello Kitty!

Hello peeps!
Over this past weekend, I got to play with my Cricut and had a lot of images that I had cut out from various cartridges.    One of them was playing with my Hello Kitty Cartridge..   Love love this cartridge thanks to my bloggy buddie  who gave it to me.   I hope all is well and you are feeling better, she's been down for quite sometime.     
Any how here is one of the image and I had her cut out at 3", had a flower stamp and decided to ink it up against the red cardstock and added some white dots with my gel pen.
Left the sentiment out so she could be used for any occasion.  

Thanks for peeking in~

Bushed of Apples!

Happy Sunday peeps~
Just a few more days until we say goodbye 2014 and welcome in the  New Year! Being working all weekend trying to sort and straighten out what I need and don't need in my craft storage bins.  We can never be pleased if we have it all or not, LOL!
Any how here is another card that finally got finished off last night, no coloring involved.
I find just working with dies only can be just as fun.   The only thing I added here what was some white dots using my gel pen to pop out the apples.  This card gets added on to my stash collection, also worked on cutting out lots of images from my Cricut.  Right now they are just laying in a tray ready to be put together.   So I can't wait to start my new collection of cards for 2015~.   

Now it's time for me to get my pork roast in the crock pot for tonight's dinner.
Yum!  While that is going on I' will be prepping my cards...
Tata - be back later~
Enjoy your crafty moments~

Whale you be mine~

Just poppin' in again to share another card while I'm busy cleaning up and getting ready to go to my daughter's house tomorrow for some festive luncheon.    Yum yum!
I thought I would share some stamps and dies that I've been messing around with.

The stamp set is from Lawn Fawn plus the coordinating die to that set.   Decided to draw in some eye lashes on the girl whale  just to distinguish her a bit. 

Enjoy your Christmas Eve and be back after Christmas Day!

Cozy Robin!

Hello peeps~
Since I've been up super early this morning, I decided to make some tags.  Got all my beef prepped and they are sitting in the dehydrator now for several hours.    I got (3) batches to do so this will be another all day process... So while that is going on I decided to print out DSB Cozy Robin digital image and get them on these tags that I previously had done.

All I need to to do is punched out my holes and put some pretty ribbon on it. 

and  here's (6) more

Tata - be back shortly~

Two-year calendar gifts!

Happy weekend peeps~
Another short and quick post to share what I've been working on last evening.   I made so far (2) covers for these two year calendars as gifts for my sister who is a honu (turtle) lover like me and a butterfly one for my mom.   Working on a few more and will get them up when I'm done.   This is another weekend of doing my beef jerky and I will be taking a break from it until after the New Year.   Whew that sure was a big task after calculating from Dec 1st I did 150 lbs of all beef.   After this weekend I need to go back to full swing in catching up with some up coming projects that I need to start for the New Year.   After the New Year it's back to starting all over again with birthdays, anniversary's and lots of occasions.    

Enjoy your weekend~

Gift Wallets!

Here's another quick post to share some of those gift wallets that I made for the kiddies in the family.   I didn't want to make the out side of it looking too Christmasy that way they can use it to play with them later.   LOL!

These were all done with all sorts of scraps, embossing folder, dies, velcro enclosures and stamps.

Hello everyone!
Just stopped by to share another thank you card that I made for my stash.   This digital image is from Little Miss Muffet - Larry's Daffodil.   I enjoy making cards with animals on it, I think they are just the cutest images to put together.   It's been crazy busy the last three days getting my beef jerky orders together, I have a few days off taking a break from that until I go back in full gear again on Sunday.   Good thing my hubby is home he came help me prep and get all my labels put on those bags again.   I ended doing 96 bags on the first order and then I need to finish up another 68 and then I have few more orders to complete by the 15th!   I can't wait to spend all my $$$$$ on those year-end sales that should be coming up soon... Lot and lots of stuff I have on my wish list, LOL!  
Anyhow, I 'm crafting as much as I can in the next couple of days, I still have unfinished projects that I need to work on yet, yikes!!!!

Christmas Card Swap!

Hello peeps~
I coordinated with Kitty Bee Design (owner/coordinator) and suggested in doing a Christmas card swap between the DT members.   Being that I did coordinate one several years back I wanted to bring it back and share it this time among the members.  I got the approval back that is was okay and the majority all went for the idea.  Some were new to it and others have been and  some is still active with it.   We were given a few of Kitty Bee Design digital images to choose from and we each had to make something for our partner that we each got paired up with.  It could of been a card or any type of project  and it was up to the individual to either send a little token or gift with whatever you made for your partner.    So here is my cards that I made for (2) of my partners.
My first card is for Tracey

My second card is for Niki

Of course they both were sent some extra fun stuff in their packages.   But it's for them to share that with you all.

These card swaps are fun to do and I hope I can get a good response back from all of you that  would be interested in participating.   You can read the deets here that I posted a while back.  

Thanks for stopping by!

I like the way you roll!

Quick post to share another birthday card I did last evening!   This was a last minute card that I had to make for someone who requested a card they needed for Monday.   She wanted something that had some type of oriental flair to it, so digging through my containers I pulled out my Lawn Fawn stamp and die set.  I got this set when it first came out and decided  this was just perfect for that birthday person.   I heard they love to eat sushi  all the time on their happy hour get together' s.  LOL!

Enjoy your crafty weekend~
Be back soon!

Birthday Card!

I've got a birthday card that I made and I also made some flaps using my envelope punch board.   Love how cool this turned out it's an A2 size so it fits perfectly in a regular A2 envelope.   This actually is perfect for a gift card but I made me a gift card size envelope also using the envelope punch board and will be adding in some moolah.   My cardstock is actually a dark blue but in the picture it looks black.   Added some bakers twine, the papers are from the paper pad Prima Marketing (Forever Young)and the sentiment die from IO. 
The sentiment on the gift envelope is from a stamp set that I tossed out the image but kept only the sentiment, LOL!.  And I used my Spellbinders wonky rectangles for the back on the inside insert to write a birthday greeting to the young lad who will be turning 10 years soon.
