I Should Be Cleaning!




 by Ashley Cannon Newell. Ashley made a gorgeous card.

Hello friends! I am sneaking in here today with a tag. I should be cleaning for Thanksgiving. I went in to clean my craft room and got distracted, then decided to make a quick card for MIM and Merry Mondays. I am not even sure if I can enter a tag for MM. ( I kept it red, white and green just in case)


I stamped my own plaid, maybe my first time. 

Thank you so much for stopping by. If I don’t get back in the craft room before Thursday I want to wish all my American friends a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving. 

Thank you for all you kind comments on my tag and bell cards.

Thankful For Kind People




Play Here

Hello ! Happy you could stop by today. The challenge is Thankful and you might be wondering why I have a golf themed card. The design team was also asked to use a non craft item on their card. 


I found this 3/4 in punch worked perfectly for my layered golf ball! 
I added Glossy Accents to the top, it was not quite dry yet.


Well, I chose a golf themed card because I am very thankful that after a very stressful week at work that my husband golfs every Sunday  with his good friend. There is an older couple that lives on the golf course and they often talk to my husband and his friend and they even make them breakfast! My husband loves his golf.  I golf too but not much anymore. I stay home and use the time for crafting. 

I went looking in the junk drawer for inspiration and when I saw this tee I knew that I would be making a golf themed  thank you card.


The sale this week is free shipping on any U S order of 15$ or more. What a great deal ! Usually you have to spend way more for free shipping.

Ringing The Bells !


Merry Monday #135 {Christmas Bells}

Christmas Stampin’All Year Long


Hello and happy Monday to you!
 I never really had any bells in my stash until I received the new Serendipity Stamps bells. I stamped them in Versa Mark ink, then used clear embossing powder and fussy cut the bells out. 


I would like to congratulate a dear friend on becoming a grandmother for the very first time. 
Many of you know her as well.
Congratulation on your new precious blessing, Lisa! I couldn’t be happier for you.

Thanks so much for stopping by .
 I pray for a peaceful week for all.

Gingham Ombre



One more card for MIM, that I made a few days ago.

Moxie Fab World



Hello, I made this second card on Monday. 
 Yesterday was spent at my daughters house (the one with the 6 children) We made Papertrey Ink Tinsel and Tag snow globe ornaments with the girls. Two of the girls wanted to make more than one. Funny, our GD with down syndrome made her own  globe and did a beautiful job but she was done after one.  Delaney always gives everything a try but once and then she is done! She just makes me laugh, they all do. I never had a free moment to even a single picture . Sorry!

This card was made with an oldie stamp set from Papertrey Ink  and a favorite Christmas sentiment. Then I added a bit of liquid gold pen to the star and trunk. The tree is made of three layers.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I cannot believe I am 9 followers away from 200. I am so grateful for all of you dear followers!

First Try At Ombre


Laura has a fun video up on the Papertrey Ink blog. Her card is beautiful ! 

This will be a guy card, I need lots of those.

I cut and glued 3 layers of the letters .

Good morning! I woke up early so gave this Ombre a try after seeing how gorgeous Lauras card is.
This is my first attempt at ombre stamping, to be honest a few years ago I didn’t even know what the heck ombre was! I thought maybe it was Spanish for hat or something :) 

I am going back in the craft room to give this another try. 

Thanks for stopping by.

Festive Friday Guest Designer






I received a happy email from Ardyth asking me I  would like to be a guest designer for Festive Friday .... Of course I said yes!!!


Mistletoe is from Serendipity Stamps and the sentiment is from Hobby Lobby Stampabilities.


Hello and welcome to another Festive Friday challenge. I am so happy to be a GD this week.

I chose the colors from the beautiful inspiration photo, browns and rusty reds with leaves and ribbon. I stamped, embossed and used glossy accents here and there. I did a bit of fussy cutting and foam tape to add some dimension to my card. The white layers is watercolor paper. I blended and painted on this card. 

 Did you know Stamping Up inks blend with water? I thought only distress ink and markers did that. The fussy cut layers are blended SU inks.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Loving My Tinsel & Tag Kit!




from Melissa, Melissa made an adorable vintage tag. 



 Good morning!
 Last night I made these two tags in less than 20 minutes. I was just playing around. My partial die is the sentiment banner. I love this MakeIt Market Kit: Tinsel & Tags  kit! It’s the very first Kit I bought and I couldn’t be happier.



Not sure why my pictures are a bit darker than they are on my photo site.

I had my banner faced the wrong way so some of the cutting board imprints showed up. Remember to have the right side facing the die.

 I hope you have a wonderful day!
