Time for Christmas cards and I have been making a few. Let me tell you, I love that Martha Stewart branch punch. I used it to make both trees and the wreath on the cards above. Just punch, punch, punch and glue and voila!

The drop in the temperature has made me think of Fall. I am so looking forward to Fall and Winter, when the air is cooler and the leaves change, then the snow falls (hopefully). I must say I am a cold weather friend. I decided to work on Halloween crafts today. Here is a shadow box I made this morning.
This is a shadow box, using an old cardboard shadow box that I have had some time. I covered it with MM Toil and Trouble cardstock. I cut the haunted house fromt he same cardstock. I used vinyl I received in HC to cut the fence, Bird, Witch, Bat, Spider Wed and Spider using the Slice Elite with the Spooky Alley Cartridge. The brad and banner in the upper right corner is Lost and Found Halloween. The skelton was plucked from a halloween necklace from Dollar Tree.

Went to CKC convention today. Sure did get a lot of good deals. They had the bling for Spellbinders at 99 Cents per pack. I certainly stocked up at that price. Also purchased some idea books . . . . go go away mental block - i now have fresh ideas. I found the gelatos colors - which was my goal - can't wait to use. Must go play now.

Well, again it has been a while since I have posted. Wanted to share with everyone a canvas i made for my youngest sons bedroom. It has pictures from a recent white water rafting trip he and his father went on. Mom stayed at home and played in the craft room. . . . not as much exercise, but a lot more fun. I purchased a plain white canvas, used acrylic paint and painted the background, double matted my pictures and used Modge Podge to adhere them to the canvas. Now he can relive his day anytime he looks up to the wall.
The second picture you see is a group of cards I received from a card swap on Crop Chocolate. These cards are beautiful in the picture, but so much prettier in real life. They all have so much dimension and character. I love the shirt pocket (the pocket is a place for a gift card) how crafty:
The CKC show is in Charlotte this weekend. Can't wait to get there and see all the new products and chat with some new and old friends. See you there.

Spellbinders Heirloom Ornaments, Spellbinders Layered Poinsettia, Heartfelt Creations Poinsettia Ornament stamps, Gold Embossing powder, some odd beads, Red ribbon. Each Ornament has six panels. Hope you enjoy it.
No post yesterday. Instead I went with Olga and Patty to a Paper Craft show in Winston-Salem. Had a wonderful time. . . these ladies are so much fun. Olga knows everyone . . . so we met some new people. Bought lots of Heartfelt Creations and some other little nuggets, which I can't wait to use. Today hopefully, I will get a Christmas ornament made from some of my purchases. If I do, it will be my very next post. Talk to you soon.

Well you all are going to think I am totally crazy. I am just not a summer person. My favorite holidays are Halloween and Christmas and I hate hot weather. I am not crazy about all the summer storms we are experiencing either. So . . . . I am in a Halloween mood. I am working on Halloween cards and decorations. I hope to post some pictures tomorrow . . . but yes they will be Halloween and who knows . . . maybe next week i will work on Christmas and Snow . . . snow. . . snow. I love winter. See you tomorrow. . . hope everyone has a safe and wonderful Holiday.

Well on to more current events. Each year my family tries to go to the Wizard of Oz - it is a great day trip for us and we all enjoy it very much. Even though my children are older, they enjoy the hike, the characters and just letting our hair down. Above is picture board I made recently of each of my children with their favorite character the Scarecrow. I always love these pictures each year. I have a lot of them, great way to watch my children grow. Oz is only open one weekend each year and that would be the first weekend in October. So these characters are local volunteers, but they sure do get into character and have so much fun with the visitors. I can't wait to hang this on my wall . . . it makes me smile every time i see it . . . just remembering the fun times with my family traveling down the yellow brick road . . . . .

CC Challenge 2- Something New
This thank you card was made with L letterpress starter kit and the L letterpress Wedding plates. This was inked in L letterpress red ink on letterpress cardstock. I really hate that you cannot see the details in a photograph, but the debossed image is so clean and crisp and the ink is so smooth. These really look very professional. I think I am going to love letterpress.
This is a 5 x 7 card on cream cardstock. I have used Spellbinders Wings of Hope, Floral Ovals, Fancy Tags, Iron Works Accents to cut the oval, border, tag and Butterfly. This are cut from Echo Park paper, Robins Egg and Splash. The Bling is from Bling it On and Basic Grays Opaline Pearls. The coordinating envelope has Flight of Butterfly from Stampin Up stamped in Baja Breeze. Thanks for looking.

Today is a great day. Had fun making this Baby card. The sentiment reads "It's the little things that makes life Big". That is so true. I used some newly obtained items to create this card, incluidng Spellbinders Floral Ovals, Fancy Tags and Ironwork Accents. Plain cream card base, Oval was cut from Echo Park Yours Truly line, Dk. Pink. Tag and butterfly was cut from pink Stampin Up. All ink was Stampin Up Soft Suede. Body of butterly was black beads strung on wire. I also used a small piece of ribbon from unknown origins. I absolutely love these new Spellbinders. I think I will remake this card in some other baby colors. See you later and have fun with your crafts.
