Sketch play...

Hello friends!  I am back tonight with a Christmas card I created with the sketch over on the talented Deconstructed Sketch site.  I used Sketch 28.  Jen does such a fantastic job with these sketches!  So, wanna see what I came up with??
 I just love this stocking ribbon.  I found this in a little craft store last year...lucky me! I cut a few strips of paper and then punched the edge with the doily lace punch by Martha Stewart. added some silver ribbon and a flower by Prima.
I was so lucky to find a scrap of this sweet reindeer paper!  I am not exactly sure but I think it is by MME.  A bit of red behind that embossed with the argyle embossing folder by cuttlebug.

A little sparkle vellum cut with the Labels Two nestabilities die and stamped with a sweet sentiment. I inked the edges just a bit.  

Love getting back to the crafting...and I even got a short run in today too.  YAY!!  Thanks so much for stopping by today.

Happy Craftin'!

Mojo Monday on Friday!

How about this!  2 Posts in a week!!  WOWZERS!  I just couldn't help playing along this week over on Mojo Monday!  I always seem to find loads of inspiration over there and this time was no exception!  The sketch this week is lots of fun; I can see a lot of potential from it.

I decided that now that the Turkey is eaten I can now officially begin my Winter and Christmas cards.
I used some My Minds Eye paper and a few snowflake stamps from a Basic Grey stamp set.  The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps.  I added some Stickles (star dust) to my snowflakes and a red pearl YUMMY!
Love the ticket ...I used a Ticket die from Whimsy stamps to create this one. So fun!
One card down; how many to go?  LOADS!  Be prepared!  All these days off and I may just wow you with another creation yet. 

Happy Craftin'!

Happy Harvest

Hello all, I hope you have had a wonderful Thanksgiving day filled with lot's of good food and company.  I am happy to report that the turkey was not dry and the pie was sweet; so I am calling this Thanksgiving dinner a success.

I FINALLY got my craft on and created a wee card!  YAY!  I used up some Basic Grey scraps to create my lovely card.  Ya gotta love when you can do that.

A little close up of the yummy Prima flowers I inked up with distress ink (old paper). The leaves I cut out using an old school Sizzix die (leaf stem).  A paper pieced a bit of color on them for added interest.
Here is the full card.  I am lovin' the rich fall colors of this card.  I am back to it, crafting that is.  So be on the lookout for much, much more!!  

News of  my other hobby.......running; I signed up for another marathon event.  This time it will be a half marathon in Dallas.  It is coming up in March.  I just know it will be here before I know it!  I am kick starting my training again.  I am one happy gal!  Between my running, crafting and my little family; I really couldn't ask for more!  So THANKFUL!

Hello friends!  I have seriously been missing my crafty fun.  Lately between working a full-time job, running and my kidos I have accumulated a HUGE mess in my crafty space!  So I had not been creating anything...BOOO!   Today I decided to put an end to all that craziness and clean up  my crafty space!  OH, the horror!  But it had to be done...several hours later and I now have a fresh clean crafty space once again.  when I was all finished I went for a run and now I am ready to get my craft on!

I also noticed that it is time for Imaginisce is having a DT call right now that ends on Friday.  OOOOOO how exciting!  Wish I could get on with that fun group, hmmmm maybe I can whip up some things to show them how crafty I am.  Wanna check it out for yourself??  Take a PEEK.

Well this post is gonna be short and sweet so I can get to crafting.  I will have something to show soon.

Till then, Happy Craftin'!
