Little Sweet P!


Here's a little double page's simple...but I think really cute! :)

It involves one of my cutest subjects niece Presley.

I love lining up pics like this to scrap. It's super easy!

The circles and title are cut with my Cricut.

Have a great day!

This Mystery is a Little Chilly

Hi everyone!
It's time again to post our creations for the Mystery Swap Group over on SCS. I am part of a great group of ladies that love to share.

Our latest image, sent to us by the Mysterious Terry is a chilly one. :)
Here's what I did with it:

Ain't he the cutest?!
Thanks Terry I loved coloring this image.
I decided he needed a shadow....giggle
I picked some snowflake Recollections paper to go along with this chilly cutie. Also, you know me, I'm a simple girl, so this card was put together very easily. I can't wait to see what my other Mysterious Sisters do with this!

Until next time...

Dueling Darlings ~ Plains, Trains and Automobiles

Yes! It's that time again!!!! It's Dueling time. Bring it on!

Little Ms. Debbie is the Dazzler's hostess this month and I adore the kits she sent!
Yes! I said "kits"! She sent two. It was hard to choose but this is what I created...

I embossed the the rust card stock she sent with my SU! square lattice folder. Then, distressed and inked it.
The K & Company paper is adorable! I distressed, inked and sanded that.
The little Kraftin Kimmie airplane stamped image was colored with copics then cut out and mounted atop a Natural white SU! piece of punched card stock. That's what my card base is also. I followed that with a matching piece at the bottom for my sentiment (using SU! Petite Pairs).
My favorite part of this card is my button "treatment". :) I used a MFT hot fudge button, cut a piece of the green ribbon and linen thread Debbie sent and made, what I think is a cute accent.

Thank you Debbie!

Debbie and Carol (the hostess for the Divas, our dueling team) asked us to share a memory of getting to our favorite holiday. An adventure you might say.

Well, the one that popped into my mind immediately when I saw this was a few years ago when North Alabama experienced a large amount of snow on Christmas Eve and Day. There were lots of roads closed and iced over. In my mind, we were going to have a relaxed Christmas at home and visit family at a later date. My husband however had other plans. He said "I've never not been at my Mom's at Christmas and this snow and ice is not going to keep me from doing so this year!" He was on a mission! So, we bundled the kiddos up, loaded them and the presents in the car and headed out. A trip that usually takes us 50 minutes, took us over 2 hours! We have to cross a very long, 4 lane bridge on the way that is quite elevated. It was super scary to say the least. Of course we made it and had a wonderful time with family, but I will never forget the "adventure" we had to take to do so.

Until next time...

Twisted Tuesdays and Manly Tools!

Are you a Twisted Tuesday fan? We hope so! 
This week, Twisted Tuesdays wants to see your masculine cards. The Twist is you need to use "tools". This can be a stamped image or you can use your Big Shot, Cuttlebug, Cricut, paper punches....hey that's the tools we use in crafting isn't it?! hahahaha! Come show us what you created!

Here's my masculine card. For the Twist, I used my Big Shot, a Spellbinders die and a paper punch:

I hope this is masculine enough. It's going to my Dad for his birthday :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
Use the link at the top, right of my blog to find the Twisted Tuesday challenge this week.

Thankful for my Fall Blessings

Hi everyone. I hope your week is starting out joyfully!

Today is the 5th so that means I have a challenge creation to post. The Crafty Gals blog group on SCS has a monthly challenge. This month's hostess is Jackie. She wanted us to make a creation with fall blessings and thankfulness in mind.

I'm thankful for my parents. They are both still with me. I thank God every day for that. They would do anything in the world for me. I'm very blessed. :)
This is their Thanksgiving card from me this year.

I made this card with a kit that was sent to me from a friend in my FB group. I still have enough supplies to make at least 3 more cards! :) Thanks Cindy R.!

I can't wait to see what my Crafty Gal Sisters have come up with for this month's challenge. Their blogs are listed in my right sidebar. Go check them out!

Until next time...

Polka Dot Owl


I was cleaning up the pictures on my computer and come across this one. I have searched my blog and can't find where I shared this with you. So, well it has to be done right?! :)

 I made this bookmark a few months ago for sweet Ms. Jeanette. We are in a FB group together and our first challenge was to create a bookmark for one of our "sisters". I know that Jeanette loves patterned paper and that she likes owls. So, I think I personalized this for her pretty well. :)

I added some pearl tipped straight pins behind the image. I cut all the circles with my Spellbinder dies. I added a little sparkle to the image with stickles.
The ribbon is from Bo Bunny. I have a HUGE roll of this polka dot ribbon and have had it for a long time. It finds it's way into quite a few of my projects. I love brown and I love polka dots!
Here's the bookmark "serving it's purpose". I really like how it turned out.

Thanks for visiting today.

Until next time...
