Happy Day

Sorry it has been awhile.. I haven't done much crafting.. Kids are out of school out and I have been really busy with that.. Hubby doesn't feel good so this weekend we did nothing..

I did go and see the twilight movie which I enjoyed with a good friend.. I hope they make the rest of the movies soon.. The place they shot the movie was just wonderful I love seeing all the scenery.

I got invited out to lunch today by another good friend but can't.. Hubby has a doctor's appt. and I have 8 kids here today.. Tommorrow I only have 4 kids so that will be a nice change.. Then off for the rest of the week..

No Stamp Card Swap

I signed up for a no stamp card swap.. So I figure it would be fun to play with my Silhouette machine.. So I made this let it snow card.. then embossed the letters with my cuttlebug..I added glitter glue to the some of the raised snowflakes I added the little snowflake.brad to add some charm.. And found a blue snowflake paper to the inside..

I also wanted to send a long a die cut I made. To be used for another card or whatever..

thanks for looking..

Snow Charlie

Snow Charlie is a new set I got from Clear Dollar Stamps.. I aslo used majestic moutnian from them as well for the background..

Ok got a bit crazy with the glitter.. I know.. Supose to say Be Merry on the bottom of Charlie.. The great thing about handmade cards is there is no mess up.. I just going to stamp a new Be Merry and put it over the top of the other one..

I only had time to do this simple card yesterday.. Today I hope to get a few more done with the new stamps I got from Walmart.. I love the cute polar bear in that set.

I wanted to make more but wasn't feeling it last night.. Had a headache and still needed to fill in my ballot.. So I quit before I could get too much of a mess going.. Maybe tonight I will be able to get a few more done..

Fall is in the Air!

I got to play today.. It was great working in the new Craft room and being able to find my things.. Wow..

So over at Cards Made By Hand msn group there was a contest for a Fall themed card..

So this is what I came up with..

I really like the way that Charlie Horse came out.. Now the other card needs some help.. I think it's the Pink.. I am not fond of Pink so that just could be it.. Not really sure what is going on there..

Anyway hope you enjoy them..

I have been busy unmounted all my wood blocks.. now I have a ton of room left for more stamps.. LOL

My Craft Room Is Done!!!

Hubby totally surprised me with a new custom laptop. He ordered cuz he said it matched the walls.. Too cute.. Well I got most of my stuff moved in. I love being able to find things and not dig through boxes.. So I am jazzed!!

So I have a bit more work to do on it.. Hard trying to get everything so oragnize. The other side of the room is going to be a closet with a nice cabinet for sweaterers and shoes and stuff like that..

I think Hubby did an awesome job on it.. I waited so long for it and wow it was so worth it.. That is why is said he got me the laptop.. Cuz I had to wait over 2 yrs for my own spot..
