Creations w/ Christina & My Pink Stamper

We have a challenge to create something w/ a Christmas cut in a non Christmas way. So I have used the Joys of the Season cartridge and used the Christmas Rocking Horse cut and made it into a baby boy card. Thanks Robyn & Christina! Their links to their websites are on the left hand side. A definite must see for crafters. :)

Christmas Cards to my Nieces and Nephews

Here are the Christmas cards I made for my nieces and nephews. I'm holding on putting up my siblings cards just in case they check this site out. :)

This is what I put on the inside. I just LOVED this stamp. It came from My dogs were just too close to looking like this for me to NOT get it. :) Then I of course HAD to put my tithing message in there. It's what I do for their Christmas and birthday cards. If I forget you can believe that I hear about it. :D

Congrats Nurse Cyndi!

My sister Cyndi just graduated from nursing school. This is her congrats card. Hopefully you can tell but it is in the shape of a band-aid. :)

Happy Birthday Cole

Here is a birthday card that I made for my nephew Cole, who will be 3 on the 20th.

I LOVE this paper. It is from Close to My Heart (CTMH) called Tinkerin. I definitely have to get more of it. The main robot and message is from Recollections Robot stamp set and the dog is from CTMH Robot Power Stamp set. The ribbon is from Pebbles: Sun Yellow. That ribbon I got from a website called I LOVE this site. They send you an email everyday for the 'deal' of the day. This ribbon was normally $60 and got it for $15. (or something like that). It came in all different colors and there were different variations of ribbon of the same color. Definitely sign up for that site. It's great.

The Tragedy of the Advent Calendar

Well, only 2 days into the Advent Calendar and it didn't survive the storm of 'The Tavis Kyla Misty'. That's not very good odds. Basically the dogs were playing, hit the side of the piano, the calendar fell to the ground and the dogs had a fun fest chewing on the chipboard pages. So fun!

I came upstairs to check on them, saw the calendar laying on the floor. I of course lashed out by screaming 'WHY WHY WHY!!!' (yes, picture a 1940's movie) They just looked at me as if I was weird. Then I went to my craft room and closed the door on them. I could hear them whining outside the door but had no sympathy. So basically after HOURS of putting this together it was destroyed in a few minutes. I did go through each page and I have to replace about 7 pages, possibly 8. (I won't lie, I did mist up) It is a project that will have to wait until after Christmas or just before because I have too many other Christmas projects going on.

I'll still post the pages for each day though so you can see the original pages.

His Name is Awesome

Here is a card I made my brother Sterling. He convinced the primary kids we use to teach together that his first name was Awesome. So I when I saw this stamp I just had to get it. So funny.

Little Stinker

My dad was trying to take a picture of his medals for us and we couldn't get the right lighting. So he took it outside to try and take a picture of it. Wasn't a great idea as it reflected everything but do you see my cute little stinker Kyla in the pic? :) Too Cute! Aren't all of the medals impressive? So proud of my dad.

Gingerbread Men

Since my sister named my blog her "prize" was 10 Christmas cards. They were all pretty much this design.

Nascar Card

This is a birthday card for my brother in law who is a crazy Nascar Jimmy Johnson fan. Well JJ just won his 4th win in a row, a record, so I decided to make a card about it for him.
