Everything Elanor

The theme for my October Make and Take is Thanks.  This will be the final card we will make for the event.  I love it!  It uses the Everything Elanor, Curly Cute stamp sets and the Oval Accent Bigz Clear Die.  I did use Dazzling Diamonds on the flowers to help them pop.  Hope you like it!

If you live in or around the Kansas City area and would like to attend one of my Make and Takes or schedule an event of your own, please feel free to contact me.  I would love to meet you!

Yet Another

This is a little change in the triple time stamping.  I cut out the leaves and used some twine that I had for the bow in the button.

I used Ridding Hood Red, Garden Green, Chocolate Chip and More Mustard inks.  The background paper is Ridding Hood Red.  I also used Very Vanilla and Early Espresso.

Happy Fall Y'all

I love fall.  I love the scents, the colors and the great comfort food.  I am very excited to be making fall and Thanksgiving card for next months make and take.  I have to say that being this prepared so far in advance is a first.  I have to thank my wonderful family who have helped get my craft room in order.  I have really enjoyed having the dedicated space to create and not worry about not having a place to eat because all my stamps, punches and paper are all over the dinning room table.

 I love how the water color looks on the gold paper.  I wish the camera had taken a better picture of the whole card.  It looks more stark white in the picture than it is in person.  It is really a confetti cream paper and looks wonderful with the colors from the leaf.
 First try.  I just painted Midnight Muse in the embossed image.  I liked the sheer effect but then I had an idea.
This is the second one.  I used Crystal Effects and a drop of Midnight Muse ink.  I am thinking that I like this jar the most. Not finished with it yet but getting the rough layout together.

Just a little over a month left on the Late Night Stampers Treasure Hunt.  I do hope you check out all the great blogs and find your clues.  Be sure to turn them in by October 31 to be entered in the drawing.  In the mean time Happy Hunting.

Two Cats One Basket

These two little ones are some of our foster kittens.  The little orange tabby is Connie, she is very outgoing and loving.  I love her personality.  The grey swirl tabby is Jack.  He has a clogged tear duct that we will have flushed in hopes of reopening it.  We have until October 4th to raise $100 to cover the procedure.  Crossing our fingers we can get there.Connie was sleeping in the little basket and Jack decided to join her.  They crack me up.

September 2012 Make and Take Part 2

I was not going to make all my cards for this make and take Halloween but once I got started I couldn't help myself!  It was so much fun.  I had to hold myself back and only make the 4. 

 For this card I used the 2 1/2" circle punch and Very Vanilla paper for the moon.  I sponged Cajun Craze and More Mustard to get the glowing effect.  I used the owl punch, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso and Pumpkin Pie paper and googlie eyes for the owl.  If you have placed an order with Stampn' Up you probably have lots of packing paper and that is what I used for the tree and sponged on Chocolate Chip ink.   
I used Whisper White torn and sponged with Basic Black ink and Basic Black torn and Googlie Eyes. 

I had such fun this month and I am very excited to start working on next months fall and Thanksgiving cards!!!!

September 2012 Make and Take

 This reminds me of the 5 little pumpkins story I would read to my boys.  My youngest even helped place the pumpkins on the fence.

This is an idea I got off of Pinterest.  It was originally a box but I thought that I could use it better as a gift card.  My mom thinks it will be great to send to my nieces.  I think that I will show you another use for in a future blog. 

I have been working on my September Make and take and I am very excited about how much I have gotten done in one day!  Two cards and a pet project for my mom.  

The float ghost is something I made for my mom.  At her work they secretly give out little treats to co-workers and she was needing to come up with a cute idea.  I quickly made this as an idea.

School Days

 This is my oldest son.  He is currently doing 7th grade.
 This is my daughter she is doing 8th grade.
Here they all are.
 Feverishly working. 
This is my youngest.  He is currently working on Kindergarten.

I love being able to stay at home and be with the kids teaching them!  I am really enjoying the new curriculum that is very literature intensive.

Ta Da!

 This is the opposite wall. 
 This is the wall on the right when you walk in.  We don't have cable so the TV is just decorative at this point. I think I will keep the doors off at least for now.  I like having the stamps easy to see when I want to get an idea for what kind of card I want to make.
This is the head on wall when you walk in between the counter top and the cabinets
This is the future home of my dog bed.  This is my crafting partner Luke.  We foster kittens and cats and got Luke when he and his sister were 6 weeks old.  I fell in love with his kitty kisses and hugs  (Yes he wraps his paws around my neck like a hug.) and had to keep him.  The dog bed is for our King Charles Caviler puppy who is now 6 months old and wants to be with one of us at all times. 
 This is the closet.  I cracked out my labeler and now everything is easy to find.
