Halloween Birthday Gift!

Hello and Happy Wednesday Everyone! Heck....
HAPPY HALLOWEEN to you! :o) Today is a very
special day for one of my very special friends! She
was born on Halloween! What a surprise that must
have been to her parents! LOL Any way... I've told ya
that I needed to get something made for her and I had
pretty much 1 day to do it in..... I know, I know... Terrible
friend! It's NOT like I didn't know when her birthday was...
It's totally easy to remember! Or so you'd think! LOL
Well, since I only had so much time to do it in
here is what I created for her....

I had this can and said to myself... self
you could totally make something out of this can
which is how this whole thing got started! LOL
(Bear Cut @ 6")

Create a Critter sooo, that's what inspired
me to design this with that in mind! I told her
I had gotten this cartridge (Create a Critter 2) 
and it's on her list of cartridges to get, 
so I thought it would be
fun to cut out some of the animals and put them
on the can for her.... The inside is filled
with crafting stuff...
(Owl cut @ 6")

Of course it turned out a little
differently than what I had in mind...
But since time really wasn't on my side
I just went with it.... :o)
(Turtle Cut @ 6")

I added gems, stickles, ribbon, twine,
googlie eyes, action wobbles to all of them
(Bee cut @ 6")

Designer paper is DCWV, I used 2 12x12 sheets 
to cover the entire can & lid..... I added some
ribbon as the border around the top & bottom
of the can, which now I'm not sure why I did???
(Ghost cut @ 4")

Then, I HAD to make her a card to go
along with what I started.... The card is
cut from my Cameo, so are the words....
The Spider is from Create a Critter 2
Cut @ 2 3/4"

I HAD to fancy up the inside a little
for my girlfriend... She's totally worth
doing the inside of a card! :o) The Monster
was cut @ 2 3/4" , the stamp is from 
My Creative Time... The inside saying is
from my Hallmark program....

Well, let's hope she likes it! Thanks so
much for stopping by and seeing what I
created for my friend! I hope everyone has 
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

Trick or Tweet!!!

Hello and Happy Tuesday Everyone! What... 2 days in a row I'm posting????
What's wrong with me? Well.. let's see... Halloween is TOMORROW already!
and I really haven't made hardly any Halloween cards this year.... That's totally
unusual for me! But I've had a busy month, so that's my excuse... :o) And since
tomorrow is Halloween, I thought I would share my last 2 creations with you,
before November 1st! :O) Yesterday I showed you my card for my September
Monthly card swap. Sooo now I thought I would show ya October's card
for our monthly card swap... We were to make a card for Fall/
Halloween/ or Thanksgiving... Here's mine...

I tried several times to get a good photo, but for
some strange reason, this card did not want it's
picture take! UGH! Sorry about that! Any who...
The moon was cut with Bazzill shimmer CS and then
I embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swirls Folder....
I flood filled the tree/fence with some designer
paper in my Cameo program, printed it out and let my
Cameo do the rest! The dotted designer paper is from
DCWV.... And the Tweety is a print design from
my cameo as well.... I printed & cut Tweety out
2x's and popped him up on the fence....
I created the tag myself and used an eyelet &
some bakers twine to tie it together.... The stamp is
from My Craft Spot..... I inked around all the edges.....
Well that's all I have for today! Come back tomorrow
to see the project I made for my girlfriend whose
Birthday is on HALLOWEEN!!!! Yesss... I got it all
done yesterday... I had the day off, so it was a MUST! :o)
Thanks sooo much for stopping by....
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!!

Book print Butterfly....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope you had a wonderful weekend!
Remember in my last post I said I had ALL day Saturday to create... Well
I spent ALL day trying to make 1 thing! UGH!!! I mean I had to make 12 of
them, but it was 1 design! Go figure... Of course I took some time out to hang
with my family too, so that was some of it, then I stopped working on the card
set and started to read a book on my new Kindle Fire HD! Which I'm now in
LOVE with! It's my Christmas present to me from me! I'm so nice! LOL
I also got one for my hubby! I bought him the original kindle fire last year for
Christmas and he loved it and so did I... I've been wanting one ever since I got
him his! Then Amazon came out with the New Kindle Fire HD and WOW!!! I sooo
love it more than the other one! :o) Since we both got one, we decided to give
my youngest my hubby's old one... I got him a new green case for it... (Green's
his favorite color) so were gonna surprise him with it for Christmas along with
some other things he asked for.... :o) I know, I know... you're saying
THERESA we haven't even had Halloween yet
and you're talking about CHRISTMAS ALREADY!!! UGH!
YESSS.... I am! You know it'll be here before you know it
and I like to be on top of things when possible! So yes
I've already started shopping! BUT.... I haven't started on my
Christmas cards yet! GO FIGURE!!!! LOL
As of today, I'm working on a Birthday project for a
friend of mine, who's birthday is on HALLOWEEN!!!
Soooo, I've got pretty much 1 day to get it done! LOL
An idea came to me to Sunday afternoon while I was
baking bread and making dessert for dinner... So I
didn't have lots of time to work on it last night, so
hopefully today I can... ;o) Otherwise she's
getting flowers? Or something like that.... :o)
OK.... here's a card I made before I went on vacation...

I made this for our Sept. Card swap... Just never got
around to taking the pictures....

I used My Digital Studio to design it
Then I printed out all the elements
Then used my Cameo to cut out all the pieces...
Added some tulle ribbon and stamped
Happy Birthday, and there ya go! :o)
Well, that's it for me today! Wish me luck at
getting a gift done for my friend..... If I do,
 I'll try and get a picture to show ya what
I made! Thanks so much for stopping by!
