Hi Everyone!!! OMGOSH!! I'm sneaking in my office to post this card....hehe shhhhhhh!!!!
I'm supposed to be cooking and baking because tonight is our Schneider family Christmas party here at my house....so all 16 of us will be eating real good for dinner..LOL!...When I saw this challenge on The Greeting Farm the 12 days of Christmas challenge I knew I had to play...so this is my first day entry....I actually paper pieced her entire outfit yay!!!! and I also used liquid applique for her hat....The DP is from DCWV (The Christmas Stack)......The sentiment is something I printed out....The cute Santa brad is from my "stash"....this card seemed a little plain but I was looking at it and I decided to ask for opinions from Tim and Chiy and they both said Your Crafting!?!?!? hehehe I always wait till the last minute to get things ready for what I need to do before a party at our house so they worried because I always end up staying up real late trying to finish up stuff... :) but I couldn't resist...so yep I crafted then left my office and went to bed at 1:30am....Well I have to run!!! :) Hope you like it ..

OK some exciting news this morning. Taylored Expressions newsletter came out this morning and while I was reading it I became more and more excited. They have CHA open to the public on Jan 23rd - 24Th in Anaheim! right across the street from Disneyland! which we have season passes for. I immediately called Tim and told him... he said sure buy tickets I'll go with you and the kids can go to D-Land! whoo hoo! I love this man. He has gone to a scrapbooking convention with me before because he doesn't like me having to go by myself. So he listens to his I-Pod and holds ALL my packages and tries not to let his eyes bug out when my total gets rung up..LOL!
Gosh I love you Tim! Thank you! Thank You!!! O boy now I need lots of money! So if you want more info go visit Taylored Expressions....

OK to the card. I used a sketch from Magnolia but can't enter it because I didn't use there stamps but I really like how it turned out with Charlotte from WOJ. There was also another challenge and that was by Stamps and Smiles... All the DP is from My Mind's Eye (Wonderful Winter).....The card base is from CTMH. The solid green cardstock, sentiment are from SU... I bought the new MS leaf punch and have been having fun with that :)...The flowers are from Prima with my beautiful dew drops in the middle. The rick rac is from my "stash"..The Cherish sentiment is from EK Success...That's it :) have a great Monday!

Mine was a lot of fun and I'm glad everyone came here. I have to show you pictures of my remodeled 3rd bathroom and dining room Tim did for me for my birthday and he did it all with working full time with overtime, Nana dying and me being real sick. He did it all in a two week time frame too. I couldn't very well craft while he was staying up till one in the morning busting his butt to get it done for Thanksgiving..so that's why else I haven't been around....He did such an awesome job! I love that man ;) ...OK to the card..this is me playing around. I wanted to use blue (can you tell) hehe.all the DP came from DCWV Christmas stack..the card base, ribbon, brad and snowflake embelly are all from CTMH...The image is from the TGF. I used my white gel pen from SU on his hair and on his hat and clothes a white Galaxy Marker. To adhere the ribbon down I used my liquid glue but it left a greasy mark which it has never done before, so I'm not happy with that, so please ignore :)...well that's it....THANK YOU AGAIN!!!! for sticking with me..I will be back (in my best Arnold voice) tomorrow morning..so have a great Sunday!
Thank You!! Come Again!!

Blog Candy Blog Candy!!!

Hi Everyone!!! Omgosh!! did you guys see that I was featured on Sassy Studio Designs yesterday!!! O that was the highlight of the year for my card making!!! I know I told you that I was done with trying out for a DT position but she did a shout out and this will be it for me..I'm going to try again and I will be crossing my fingers real hard ..gosh I don't want another rejection so this is hard for me LOL! o boy! I need to step up my game...well because of everything happening lately...me getting real sick and our Nana dying things have been a little crazy :) I just want to take a moment to thank everyone for your kind words and your support by staying my follower...it means so much to me and you will always be special to me...so with that being said I have been cutting paper like a mad woman..... I like a lot of you ;) am a paper junkie and I like to share that most of all..so I hope you can see in the picture how much your getting..I did throw in a couple of images and some card bases that matches some of the CTMH paper because in this stack your getting all the new Christmas paper from My Mind's Eye, Me & My Big Idea and a lot of other DP from different companies...I hope you would like this :)...this is what you will have to do..on this post you have till Tuesday night. Leave me a funny story to read, I would love to have some light in my life right now and thought that would be fun...So thank you for playing and I wish you luck if you should play :)

Here's My funny story (IMO) hehe..last week it was late at night Tim was working so it was just me and the kids, well I was coloring a image and thought I'm going to try to use some colored pencils, so I went to Cordell's room grabbed some pencils and of course there dull and need to be sharpened, so I asked him for a sharpener he said he doesn't have one. I went to Chiy asked her for a sharpener she said she doesn't have one. Sheesh! so I went searching the rest of the house...nada! o boy! I'm frustrated by this time because in this whole house we have no pencil sharpener you have got to be kidding right, nope...so I went into the garage and thought what the heck I'll look on Tim's work bench aka the man table..hehe and low and behold I found a pencil sharpener in his tool box. I started to giggle as I brought out this very pink bear sharpener from his tool box. I got such a kick out of it that I new I would share..LOL! I even took a picture of it ;) so I hope you get a chuckle out of the image of this bear in a big mans tool box...Now it's your turn...remember I will draw a name on Tuesday night.....have fun everyone!

A message :)

Hi Everyone!!! OK let me tell you I'm so sorry for being MIA lately..I'll tell you what happened..well I'm sure some of you remember what happened to our Nana 3 weeks ago..she fell down and broke her leg so she was sick and is still in the hospital. She's doing good but that was the start of what's been happening. About the same time that happened Tim was in our yard doing some yard work and I decided to be nice and help..silly me..Let me tell you first though that I am not a yard work kinda gal..we have a gardener it's that bad.. I run from tree to tree hiding from the sun and instructing my hubby, it's my M.O. LOL! ...so here I am about 3 weeks ago helping Tim gather rocks from underneath fruit trees and next thing I know in the last 3 weeks I have fallen apart.. I am so tired I could sleep standing up..It's more like exhausted every single day and I started getting migraines every single day from a pain scale 1 to 10 10 being the worst mine are 8 everyday thennn LOL! My body was so tired I could barely lift anything..WELL I finally said something to my doctor but it's kinda funny (still) my doctor is also my hair removal guy..so I'm getting my armpits done (really really painful by the way) and I start telling him, doc my thyroid pills aren't working, there doing the complete opposite and I just don't feel good..so he starts thinking and he says well it could be a couple of things one being a tumor in your head and another being lupus ...great..sheesh...so I get sent to the hospital and have a head ct scan ..see a neuroligist negative results well in the meantime doc sent me to get some blood tests well 11 vials in one sha bang was fun (not)..hehe...so then finally I get the call that says I have Lyme Disease..a stupid TICK! bit me! O boy! SEE!!! I told Tim! that's what I get for being nice! I'm going to continue to stay in my craft room and eat my snickers bar while watching you do yard work from now on! that's what I told him!......... the sad part is the I didn't get to bite back or squish the bug!..so needless to say I have been missing creating and posting and can't wait to get back into it..so my mission today is to make something really cute..I don't want to lose anymore followers because I treaure every single one of you...thank you for pushing that button to keep an eye on my creations...so hopefully I can get rid of this stupid disease.. I did tell Tim that at least it's not a STD ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!..........he has a really good eye roll.... So thank you for the people that have stuck with me (((hugs))) I will be back tomorrow!!!
Thank You!!! Come Again!!!

Easel Card...

Hi Everyone!!! wow talk about screwing me up these last few days because the kids were off of school yesterday it felt more like a Saturday. So this morning I'm dropping them off at school and run home I get onto the computer. I'm looking at Mojo Monday and thinking hmmm they haven't changed it yet..Yep well I'll blame the fact that I haven't had my 520z of bliss yet (Coffee) ....so it's Thursday and I finished up this card this morning so I can show you something..well I jumped on the easel card band wagon and I will tell you now, I'm not done playing with these..They are so much fun!!!! I used the directions from Sassy Studio Designs ...

Pretty Pretty Princess!

Hi Everyone!!! I hope everyone had a great weekend .. :) today's card features a sketch from Sketch Saturday and a image from The Greeting Farm this is Princess Ava from the Twinkle Tots collection...I absolutely love her! I don't think the picture shows you that I used vellum as my layers. I really wanted the DP to stand out since it's wonderful DP from EK Success Disney Princess collection but it is there in the middle just like the sketch shows and on the sides it has the border punch. The flowers are from Prima and CTMH combined :) the buttons are from my "stash".. The ribbon is from CTMH. I used my pink souffle pen on her shoes, sleeves and the middle of her dress..I hope you like it..have a great week..
Thank You!!! Come Again!!

O So Purple

Hi Everyone! talk about a crazy day yesterday left the house at 8:30am and didn't come home till 10:00pm..So much to do. One of the things my family and I did was go to a renewing of vows. I made this card for the couple. Thank goodness my friend Tammy gave me so many of these images from TGF. I really need to buy something different because I never really thought on how many anniversary cards I need to make. Something funny about this card, the last time I saw the bride she had red hair and while she was walking down the aisle yesterday she had brownish blond hair, talk about feeling kinda stupid LOL! so I'm sure she's looking at it going umm hmmm red hair? LOL! O well..OK so the card base is from CTMH. The DP is from SU and the solid cardstock is from DCWV... the metal sentiments and ribbon are from my "stash"..whoops so is the flower....I hope you like it :) I hope she likes it too..even with the weird hair..hehe..it's football day so have fun..
Thank You!!! Come Again!!

Want An Apple?

Hi Everyone!!! I must say I have been having the hardest time creating this week. So please bear with me.. Today's card features an image from The Greeting Farm. This is the new creation from TGF. They're called Twinkle Tots. I had to buy all 5 of them! gosh I love TGF! This is Lottie :) I have had this DP forever it's from DCWV The Fall Stack. The card base is from CTMH. I used the sketch from Unscripted Sketches ..this is my first time playing with them and I love what I have seen...so I will be playing more often with them :) Underneath the apple buttons on the bottom are actually regular buttons from CTMH that I just added the apples on top :)...I also wrapped brown waxy flax around the solid cardstock. The metal sentiment is something from my "stash" another QVC product that I had to have and never used (till now)..hehe...sorry if I'm all over the place with my description today. I have to really hurry because Chiy left her project here at the house and I have to run back into town and drop it off..darn child! LOL! she's cutting into my Me time..hehe ...so I hope you enjoy..O and before I forget the sentiment and image are all pop dotted to add dimension..OK gotta go! Have a great Friday!!!
