Happy Monday everyone! I hope you and your family had a wonderful and relaxing Christmas! I have a story to share with you. I wanted a special camera, but I received a camera from a dear sweet friend, so I didn't get it. But my daughter had other plans. She got together with my mom to help her pay for it. so my Christmas gift was sitting under the tree. WOW! I was so blown away. here's a picture of it...I so love it!

So with that...I was also honored by Lacey at Stamp and Create. She is allowing us to give some wonderful blog candy! I chose to give a $25 gift certificate. so from now until Jan. 01, 2011 you will have a chance to win this wonderful gift! all you have to do is this...
1) leave a comment on this post

2) tell me what your new year's resolution will be

I will pick a winner on Sunday, Jan 02, 2011.

Have a wonderful and fabulous week!

Merry Christmas 2010!

It's so amazing that Christmas is here...I don't know how many of you are out on blogland today. but if you are...Have a very Merry Christmas. May this season give you a chance to reflect on the year...To cherish the wonderful experiences turned into beautiful memories...To let go of the bad, so you can move on and to realize that the key to life is to not dwell on the past or try to change things out of your control...just be Happy! to my card. This first cutie hasn't been inked up in a while. I love her and decided to make this card in my favorite color. I made special cards this year. I thought that it's a good time to tell my family how much they mean to me. I loved my snowflake punch, stickles, bling & fun flock. it really does add a special touch to each card.
this next one I sent away to a baby celebrating his first Christmas! I wanted to use this cute hanglar stanglar baby! Thank you Cami for sharing this cutie with me!!
This one I made for my oldest niece. She loves green and she's not too girly. I used darby that I got from Lacey at Stamp and Create! she's so cute and I added some fun flock, stickles, bling and snowflakes on this one as well.
I have been wanting to ink this cutie up...TGF beanie girl. I decided to use my blue copics on this one. I think she really matches my 2nd niece. I am having fun with my snowflakes...can you tell? lol!
this last one is for my brother. Since we got older & our lives changed, we never really exchange cards anymore, so this year I thought I'd make a special one for him. I used the new GF set.
Thank you for the friendship throughout the year...
I am truly blessed by your sweet comments and for sharing your ideas and inspirations with me! I hope to share more with you through the new year 2011.
Have a wonderful and special season!

Baby it's cold outside...

For my daughter's class this year...I wanted to make something different than just giving candy away. My good friend Joni gave me the idea. Thanks eh! I bought some caramel cocoa packets from Longs and added some chocolate candy and mints to the bag. Found a cute poem and stuck that inside the bag as well. I topped it off with my cute short moose from Stampendeous and only colored his nose.
here's what a single packet looks like and I wanted you to be able to see the cute poem I found to put inside the bag. I changed some of the words =)
Your friendship warms my heart every time you stop by and leave me such wonderful sweet thank you!

Gingerbread Houses...

Happy Hump Day everyone! it's been a while, but I have been crafting here and there. Here are some milk cartons cut with the big shot pro, that I borrowed from my dear friend Teri. I turned them into gingerbread houses. I just took one top note die, embossed it and cut it in half. I used some old SU DP for the trim, used a border punch, added my gingerbread man and finished it off with a ribbon to close off the top. I added a sentiment in the back, but I forgot to take a picture.
hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season. Christmas will be here before you know it!

Happy Tuesday you may have read from my post yesterday...Stamp and Create is having a Christmas Sale and everything in that category is 25% off. So here's one of the stamps I used for my tag. this is a set and it's called: A Cheeky Christmas from TGF. I colored her with my copics, used fun flock to make the white areas fluffy and blinged out the Christmas tree.
here's what the inside looks like. I used one of the sentiments that came with this set. I also used my labels fifteen nesties to make the shape of this tag.
hope you all are enjoying the holiday season.
I am trying to finish up my wrapping and then getting them delivered!
till next time:
May Christmas bring you much Joy,
with lots of goodies and lots of toys...
may you be blessed with so much more,
more than you ever hoped for...
with lots of love and lots of laughter
for a future and a happy ever after...
but most important of them all,
Jesus is the one who took the fall...
for all your sins to be washed away,
to have eternity with him, he had to pay...
remember the reason

Jesus is the only way!

Sorry gang...I have been so busy now that Christmas is near and I have been trying to shop as well as take care of daily stuff that I don't have time to craft. I did have a chance to create these boxes for my mom. she will be having her mini church this week and so I wanted to make her something so she could give them. I made my own measurements, added some DP, ribbon and a sentiment to finish it's what it looks like once it's opened. I added some mints and chocolates inside the tins. I hope they will enjoy a little "sweetness" in their gift =)
Have a wonderful Thursday everyone. Another furlough Friday for me, so I will try to start to organize and wrap some gifts! maybe then I can find more time to craft. toodles!

and thou shalt call His name Jesus;

Time for Christmas...

Happy Hump Day everyone...we are only 25 days away from Christmas! What a lovely time of the year...the spirit of the holiday season seems to chime in everyone. I hope you decided to join in Kyoko's tag swap. This is it for this year, but maybe Kyoko will host it again next year. Well on to my tags. I made this one for my tag partner. This month we doubled up and had to make 2 sets of 3 tags. This is one of them that I made. I used this cute little digi from All That Scraps. The tag is made from a sizzix die. I added some flower soft for the white areas, lots of shimmer spray and added my ribbon.
I was inspired by Tammi...who created some cute snowman tags for me and I was so love with how she made it, I tried to CASE it. I don't do it justice, but here's my take on it. I used the hero arts rubber stamp called: short moose. he's so cute! I added some snowflakes, pink half pearls, spritzed my shimmer, SU ribbon and I used fun flock on the white areas on this one.
this is my last one...I got a chance to get together with some ladies from SU, so I created a tag using the SU reindeer. I do love this stamp too. I got to add lots of bling on his antlers.
May the Christmas spirit be in you...
Enjoy what the season has to bring =)
till next time:
"there's much, much more to Christmas then candlelight and cheer. its the spirit of sweet friendship that you celebrate throughout the's also the hope of a future with the everlasting Christ who gave his only son so that we could have eternal life."

Product Spotlight...Food

...CAFE IAN...
Hello! Happy Monday to's to another Product Spotlight of the week. This week we are to use an image with food. I decided to use Cafe Ian from TGF because I do love to drink coffee. Remember you get 25% off all the images in the PS.
I turned my card into an easel card. I used my label fifteen nesties for the shape. I added some crocheted ribbon in ivory and used my Basic Grey - Olivia DP. I added a sentiment that holds meaning to me. I like to think he's sipping his coffee and is pondering the words...."Life is a matter of moments"...I finish it off with..."so make sure every moment counts!"

Another Wicked THURSDAY...

One more card to share with friend and co-soccer player left for Texas and I wanted to make her a special card to say "aloha" for now. I decided to use my cute GF Thursday. I really love her and so I colored her in green and brown, added some detail with a flower, charm and dew drops. I hope she liked it!
here's what it looks like once it opened. I made a pocket for her to pull out the card...then I decided to add a envelope so that I could add a little something in it she could use.
May you and your families be safe and have a blessed THANKSGIVING. Remember to be thankful for LIFE...also, if you would like to do some shopping from the comforts of your home...TODAY and FRIDAY there will be a SALE @ STAMP and CREATE...25% OFF by using

Under the Sea...

my dear friend Joni just celebrated her birthday and I wanted to make her a special card. I came up with this. This is another digi from CC designs called Mermaid Honey. I fell in love with this one too! I tried to color her like Ariel in The Little Mermaid. I used my favorite nesties shape label sixteen for the card shape and that pretty DP is a adhesive 6 x 6 pad from Kyoko! thank you for my paper! Isn't she so cute!
have a happy hump day!

Angel Honey...

...BLACK and BLUE...
Sorry that I have been MIA. I have been going through some personal stuff as well as I was getting ready for the craft fair that I didn't have any extra time to blog. Now that things are slowing down...for now...I can share with you some of the things I made. I made this matching card and checkbook cover for a co-ed player who left us. these are her favorite colors & I wanted her to know that we were going to miss her. I used the cute Angel Honey that's a digital image you can buy at All that Scraps. I fell in love with her and had to have! the checkbook cover is also what I made for the craft fair. I am so sad as I forgot in all the chaos to take pictures of anything that I made! oh wells...
here's what the card looks like...I love to spritz my whole image/card with that sparkle to give it a wonderful shimmer.
this is what the checkbook cover looks like. Of course it's a shaker and I made this digi a little bigger so that she fits perfectly in the puka (window opening)
Hope you have a fabulous Tuesday...enjoy your short week!
till next time:
