Thankful For

For this Sunday's Simply Sunday Challenge over at Getting Cricky the theme is "Give Thanks"... For my project I am going to show you one of many things I am extremly thankful for! Three Days Before my birthday my Handsome nephew was born! I am so thankful that he is soo cute and healthy! He is surely growing super fast but I enjoy being his Aunt a ton!!

For this I used a simple Orange Cardstock background,
Put his picture on the cardstock and
Punched a hole with my Martha Stewart Window punch,
Placed it on top, Added some black velvety paper and white on top of that then used a sentiment from the K Andrews Collection "Winter Wishes" (I LOVE THIS SET!!)
Then I added some black brads to the corners and them some yellow ribbon and some red glittle glue around the edges of the black for a little bling and
There we have it :)
Its Simple yes i know but I am pretty pleased with the finished product :)

Here is a preview of the one I used :)

Winter Wishes

K Andrew Designs

I was inspired to create this project as its getting colder here and snowing off and on! On this card I used the DCWV paper pack : "The Winter Magic Stack" then I cut out the hat and mitten from my Simply Charmed cartridge and added a cute PK face to each one and added some flock to the ball on top of the hat so its nice and fuzzy :)

Then I added a piece of blue ribbon and some bling to make it pop. Lastly I added my sentiment from K Andrews Winter Wishes stamp set which is AMAZING i love it!! So many possibilities :)

So Sweet Hot Chocolate Mug

Lately I have been using my scoreboard a lot and have been trying different things with it. I was on the Score-pal site and came across the directions to put this project together.. I am really pleased with the way it turned out :)
This hot cocoa mug is made from the I Believe collection paper... I then made the flower using the EK flower punch and placed a glittery piece of paper in the center. I made a tag with the matching cup paper and used the sentiment from K Andrews Design set "Amazing You". Pick Up Your Set Today ... I then put some chocolates in a bag and tied it shut with a brown ribbon and there it is... My Cute little cocoa mug :)

I am entering this into the Simply Sunday Challenge @ Getting Cricky! -Tea Time!

Until next time <3

Black.. Orange ..

I know i'm posting these Halloween Cards a tad bit late but I am entering them into the Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge - Black, Orange and One other color.

These cards I will just save until I need them next year :) But who can ever save up enough cards to send out?! I'll stockpile them until I have no more room haha! Well Onto my cards

For my first card I used paper from Recollections called Midnight Magic. Then i used some orange ribbons and added  the 3d Happy Halloween and Spider from I do believe K&Co (i do know for sure i got them at Michaels)

 For My second Card I Used the paper from the Recollections paper pack Midnight magic again .. I really like the papers they had in this pack! They are so fun and they are so sparkly!
Then I cut out a monster from my Mini Monster cartridge and added a googly eye to him and then added a 3d Trick or Treat sign on it ...
I may change my little monster later on down the road though beause i kinda think he may need to be a little less plain.. but that i'll have to ponder for a while :)

Make sure you stop over and check out all the amazing projects at Getting Cricky's website !! And also check out her section of Wonderful stamps!!!!!

Until Next time! <3
