Girly Birthday.....

Hello and Happy Monday to you all! Can you believe 2013 is just
about over with? I know I can't! This year flew by so fast for me!
I can only hope that 2014 will be a great year for me, and for all
of you! I thought I'd post a Birthday card..... I'm so over the holidays
and I've been just crafting away in my scrap room while I'm enjoying
this nice break from work... I haven't been online to much as I'm
trying to get a bunch of cards made for my MIL.... I'll post them
once I get photo's taken... So here's a simple Birthday card!
I created this card using my Silhouette....
I can't remember all the details since I made
this awhile back.... we're talkin' months ago!
I actually have a couple more that I haven't shown you yet!
Well.... I better get back to card making before
my vacation vanishes before my eyes! I hope
to see ALL of YOU in the NEW YEAR!
Thanks for stopping by and leaving me such
wonderful comments... they are always
appreciated! Have an AWESOME DAY!!!!

Christmas Cards....

Hello and Happy Tuesday and Christmas Eve!!!
Are you guys ready for Christmas??? I think I am!
I have to work til 4pm today and I have just a couple
more gifts to wrap and then I will be ready for a cup
of coffee and a holiday cookie or 2! :o)
I'm ready for my vacation to start.... so is my hubby!
It'll be nice to just be home and relax and maybe get
some crafting time again... I miss just crafting the day
away... :o) Of course before I can craft again I must
clean my craft room.... It looks like a tornado came
through it several times in the last few weeks as I tried
to make gifts and more.... :o) Any way....

You're a Mean One Mr. Grinch!

Hello and Happy Thursday everyone! I know.... I know...
I've been MIA again! Work has been crazy and my free time
has been too..... I'm trying to do a million things all at once....
Or shall I say in a month! My husband keeps asking me.... When
am I gonna wrap the kids Christmas Gifts.... And I say well....
hopefully before Christmas Day! What about baking? I say...
hopefully before Christmas Day! Seriously.... I need to figure
out a better schedule for me... Cuz right now... my office is a
HUGE MESS! I feel lost... Oh the pressures of the holidays... eh?
I want to share something I made for my Sister as
a Christmas Present.... She did get it so now I can share! :o)
These are all wood pieces.... painted and decorated with
Scrapbook paper....

Mr. Grinch was just painted and his face was drawn
on and I added some fluff with a hot glue gun....

I used Mod Podge to cover all the letters so it'll
last my sister a long time....

I wanted to create a card to match the gift I was sending
to her.... so I downloaded this cute image off the
Internet and used Digital Echo Park Paper...
Ribbon & Card stock is Stampin' Up
Banner cuts are from the Silhouette Store....

I wanted to add a sentiment from the Grinch story....
So I just typed it out and let my printer do all the work!
I was so excited to make this for her.... She is truly the
BIGGEST GRINCH I know! LOL And I thought she could
use some holiday d├ęcor at her house! tehehehe
I'm entering this in the following Challenges:
2 Creative Chicks - Christmas/Winter
Cameo Creations - Santa is Coming to town
DLART - Thankful Thursday December Linky Challenge
Paper Playtime - Winter Fun
Thanks for taking a peek! I hope to get some free time
after Christmas.... My store will be closed so we can
take a much needed vacation and I can Craft! LOL
