Christmas Tree Advent

Good morning!  Do you all like advent calendars as much as I do?  My kids love them and so we have a few different ones that we do every year.  Some with candy and some without, we don't want them too sugared up.  When I saw this new Christmas Tree advent calendar at Lori Whitlock, I just had to give it a try.  Here is what I came up with.

Here is the tree before I added all the little pockets.  I think it would make a fun decoration by itself.

These are all the little pockets ready to be added to the tree.  The smallest ones are pretty small and it was fun to find something to fit in it, but we did find something.

 Here is the tree with all the pockets added.  I had a little difficulty lining them up, but, I think that's more due to the lighting in my house than anything else.

And the tree with the pockets filled.  I think my kids are going to have a lot of fun with this.

I used some Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle on the star for a little bit of shine.

I'm entering this at Just Keep on Creating.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great day.

Unicorn Shadow Box Card

Hello!  I know I'm still a little bit of a slacker.  I've been working on a big project for a friend and it's taking me a while to complete.  Hopefully I'll be done by the end of the weekend and can get myself into gear to get some Christmas cards done before it gets too late.

I have a fun shadow box card to share with you today.

I used a file from Lori Whitlock to cut out the card.  Isn't it gorgeous.  It was supposed to be or my daughter's birthday back in July, but, well, better late than never I guess.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great day.

Happy Halloween

Hello!  I hope you're all having a fun Halloween.  I have a couple more Halloween cards to share with you.  I've been trying to get this post up, but chasing 2 toddlers makes it a little difficult.  I used the Creepy Critters cart to cut these both out on my Cricut.

 I love the sentiment banner on this one.

Isn't that the cutest ghost?

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great day and be safe.

It's Inktober

Hello!  It's been a few weeks again.  I do have projects to share, but the lighting here has been terrible and I can't seem to get good pictures of anything.  Hopefully, I'll be able to share them soon.

So, I've never heard of this, but October is Inktober.  Do you participate?  The goal is just to draw something in ink each day in October.  I decided it would be fun and even got a couple of my kids to play along with me.

Here are the first 7 days that I've done using the prompts from the Inktober IG.

Day 1 was poisonous, so I drew mushrooms.

 Day 2 was tranquil.  I decided a nice stream on a hill would be good.

 Day 3 was roasted.  I love roasting marshmallows over a fire, so here is what I came up with.

 Day 4 was spell.  I figured everyone would be doing things to do with magic, so I went with spelling homework for school.

 Day 5 was chicken.  I love fried chicken and my daughter loves chicken legs.

 Day 6 was drooling.  I had a little harder time with this one, but here it is.

Yesterday was exhausted.  I love owls, so I drew a sleeping one.

I'm going to share these at Just Keep on Creating for their Oct. anything goes link up.

Thanks for visiting.  Have a great day.

Wonderful Birthday

Good morning!  I have a fun birthday card that my daughter requested for her friend's birthday.  I had fun making this one and used up a lot of scraps on it.

I used the She's Wonderful stamp set from Kindred Stamps.  The image is colored with Bic Markits.  I cut the "shooting stars" out of a scrap piece of DP I had in my stash, hopefully you can see all the sparkly glitter.  The other DP is also from my stash.  The sentiment and pop up box card die cut box iare Lawn Fawn.

I wasn't sure how this would turn out when I was making all the plans in my head and having my daughter pick out all the details, but I'm actually quite happy with the finished design.

Eggstra Special Easter

Hello!  I have another fun Easter card to share with you using some more Lawn Fawn goodies.  It feels good to be able to be getting crafty again, even if I have to do it in short spurts between taking care of the baby and the rest of my family.

I used the Scalloped Pop Up Box Card die for my base.  To make the grass I used the Grassy Border die.  The images are from the Egg-stra Special Easter set and the sentiment is from the Easter Punnies set from Cardz TV.  The DP is from the Really Rainbow paper pad.

I'm still working on figuring out placement so you can see all the elements better, but I think it turned out cute. 

The nice thing about this card is that it folds up to fit inside a standard A2 envelope.

Easter Shadow Box Card

Hello!  I'm here with a couple of fun Easter cards.  I've been playing with the Lawn Fawn shadow box card die again.  I'm loving this die, and some other new dies that I'll be sharing with you also.

 I used the Eggstra Special Easter set and dies for the images.  I colored them with Bic Markits.  I haven't added a sentiment yet, I'm not sure if I will, or if I'll just leave as is.

 Aren't those bunnies fun, and I love the jelly beans.

Tons of Love

Hello!  I have a bit of a late Valentine share for you today.  I've been a little sick this past week and had to sick kiddos too.  This is the card I made my hubby for Valentine's Day.

 I used the shadow box card dies and the Love You Tons stamp and die sets from Lawn Fawn.  The flowers are from another Lawn Fawn set.  I colored the flowers and elephants with Bic Markits.

 This is my first time using this die and I think it's going to be a lot of fun to use on future cards.

 I made a matching envelope using my envelope punch board.  The card isn't A2, so I measured it and chose the closest envelope size.  It's fits very nicely.

Happy Valentine's Day

Hello!  I hope you're all having a wonderful Valentine's Day.  I have some fun projects to share with you today.  My son needed some Valentine's for his teacher, aids and van driver, so I came up with a little treat to help him out.  I tried to get him to do some of it, but he was content to let me do all the work.  :)  He chose all the colors and stamps that I used.

I used my pillow box punch board to make these cute little pillow boxes.  The panda and heart stamps are from a couple of Lawn Fawn sets and the sentiment is Cardz TV.

Here are all 6 of the boxes he needed.  We filled them with some Hershey's Kisses and there you have a fun little treat.
