Happy Thanksgiving!


Happy Thanksgiving.....just wanted to pop in and tell you all I'm so Thankful for You! I have had a lot of support this past year from all my family and friends and I think this is a perfect day to reflect on this and give Thanks!

I made a card using one of my favorite Purple Onion Designs Fall stamps....Ginger!
I know that Raccoons generally have black masks...burt not this one :) I wanted to see her sweet eyes so her mask is white. In Kelly's world animals can bee all sorts of colors....
I also used a Thanks die designed by Suzanne Cannon for Elizabeth Craft Designs!

And Another view.....

I hope you are having a Wonderful Day.....

Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer Challenge Pop Up's!


Its time for the Elizabeth Craft Designs Designer challenge and this month we are doing Pop Up's using the General Pop Up dies.
I decided to use the   set and after coloring I added ECD Transparent Double Sided Adhesive  Tape and Silk Microfine Glitter before die cutting.

Here is the Front of my card:

and another view....

The Inside!

I love the little Whimsical Gingerbread Boy ad Girl especially with glitter on top :)

I used the Adventure Edges and The Dotted Scallop and Stitched Rectangles to finish off the card.

Supplies I used are linked below....

Please email me your address at and I'll get it out to you!!!

I was excited a few weeks ago when I was in Mesa at the Stamp Convention and saw this ADORABLE Rubbernecker Skater Boy!! I knew Noah was going to love him on his Birthday card this year. (He was probably getting tired of having the same skater on his cards as I only owned one before this :)
Anyhow here is the front of the Tag Book Pop Up  using the dies by Karen Burniston I made for him for his 7th Birthday!

And the card opened up:

Another View

And a few close ups.....

The other exciting thing is my little brother bought me a Brother Scan N Cut 2 and I was able to cut this cute skateboarder out on my machine :) as there is no die for this stamp.
My hands have been really bothering me lately so saving them from having to use scissors is a huge deal.....
I'm just hoping I will always be able to color.

Supplies I used are linked below, Thank You for stopping by today!
Hope you have a Wonderful Day!

A Birthday Card for my Niece and a Giveaway!


As promised I'm back today to show you the card I made for my niece that turned 11 in October.  I wanted her card to match Jacks in color but be more feminine.  I had some papers that matched in color and old collection I've had for some time that had both stripes and flowers so I used the flowers from the New Flowers and Bee set for Morgan's card. I made her a Tag Book Pop Up card using New dies by Karen Burniston to match her brothers.....

Here is the Front:

I also used the New dies Flowers and Bee and Word Set #4 Just a Note just released by Karen in her mini release.

Here is the Inside:

And another view:

I love that Karen put out a set of flowers by themselves for people that already have the Flower Pot Pop Up and also if you buy this one you have the leaves that go in opposite directions. Plus you don't have to die cut as many times :)

Now....I have a Tag Book Pop Up die set to give one lucky person so make sure you comment at the end of my post!  I'll pick a winner on Monday the 20th at 8:00 AM Mountain Time...

Supplies I used are linked below....
Thank you for stopping and Good Luck!!

A Tag Book Pop Up for my Nephew.....


My brother's Twins turned 11 in October and I knew the Tag Book Pop Up using the NEW Karen Burniston die set was going to e perfect to make them Fun cards!  Jack is a Hockey player and I did not have any Hockey stamps so went with a Skateboarder card in bright colors!

Here is the Front:

And the Inside:

Another View....

and a Close up...

I'll be back tomorrow to show you Morgan's card and I will have a Tag Book Pop Up die set to giveaway to one lucky person!
