Last Post for 2014!!

Hello & Happy NEW YEAR'S EVE everyone!!!!
Can you believe today is the last day of this year!
WOW! It has certainly flown by for me and so much
has happened & changed this year for me & my family...
Some good, some bad... And yet, I seemed to survived it
all! HA Well.. I thought I would end the year with a card!
As you all know... I LOVE making Cards, so it's no surprise
to you! LOL I'm finishing off the year with another
ADORABLE SVG file from: Kadoodle Bug Designs
These adorable Marshmallow looking bears just
had me the minute I saw them...
I could not just cut 1 of them... they're just too cute!
I first want to say... I did CAS(e) this card design
from my wonderful blogging friend Norma
She made an ADORABLE doggie card & I just
loved the design.....

Wanna build a Snowman???

Hello & Happy Tuesday my fellow bloggers!!!
How are things going for you today? I've taken down
all of my holiday decorations already & cleaned the house!
I never like to start the New Year off with my Holiday stuff...
It's just one of those things for me... I like to start FRESH! Ahhh
I also don't like making New Year's Resolutions...
The main reason is... I never follow through, so what's the point?
I try to make goals for myself throughout the year, which I find
easier for me to do & I stick with them! No pressure, no worries! :)
Today I thought I would share another winter card
using the adorable SVG file from: Kadoodle Bug Designs
Fun in the Snow
Just reminding you of the 90% off  Sale...
it ends Tuesday Dec. 30th!!

Hello & Happy Monday! I hope you all had a
wonderful Christmas with your Family & Friends!
Did you get some crafting goodies this year? I asked
for gift cards to some of my favorite crafting sites!
So I have some shopping to do!!! YAY I already
spent some at Jaded Blossoms... I don't have many
of their products, so I'm super excited to try them out!
Today I'm sharing a card I made using the new
SVG File over at: Kadoodle Bug Designs

Dragons away....

Hello & Happy Tuesday Everyone! This will be my last post
for this week... I want to spend some quality time with
my youngest... We're gonna watch some Christmas Movies together! :)
I did have a blast yesterday with my BFF!
We had a wonderful lunch & our boys got to hang out...
We did some over due catching up which was nice.
Didn't have time to make my fudge... but that's still
gonna happen today! It's a must have! And Stephanie....
I read your comment from yesterday and I remember eating
fudge with a spoon too when it didn't come out right....
I've learned to make the fudge just right... but with us moving
to a lower elevation... I think that may have played a part in
the bad fudge batch! HA We shall see today! Wish me luck! LOL
Okay... last gift idea I will share with you...
I'm still using the adorable SVG File from:

Gift cards away.....

Hello & Happy Monday Everyone! Are you ready?
You know what I'm talking about... Are you ready for
Christmas? Do you have everything done? Even those
last minute gifts? All the baking done? Hmmm
Hunter & I managed to get a ton of cookies made..
So many cookies that I don't think we can eat them all!
But it was fun baking with him.... He got tired toward the
end of it... He stuck it out & was happy we baked
them together... Then I tried to make my Grandma's
fudge... you know the good old fashion kind that takes
a lot of sugar & a lot of time stirring... Yup that's the kind!
But since we moved & the elevation is much lower....
it didn't come out... and since I'm a crazy person
as most of you know! LOL I will try again today!
I have almost everything wrapped too! I'm waiting for
just a couple more gifts for one of my boys and
then I'm done!
But I am super excited today.... cuz one of my BFF's
is coming for a visit! She & I are having lunch together
and I'm soooo excited to see her... I miss her & my
other friends, so it'll be a great day no matter what! HA
Okay.... I'll stop rambling on so I can share a last minute
gift idea for that person who has everything...
I'm using this adorable file from:
It's called: Christmas Dragons
and it's still on SALE for $1
But you need to hurry, cuz this Sale
is ending very soon!
Here's what I made....
You know Gift Cards are the best gift for
last minute gift giving or for that someone
who has everything!

I made this card rather simple... Cuz I was in a hurry...
that happens... right? :)

Tag - Silhouette Store

Your a mean one....

Hello & Happy Saturday to you all!
I'm trying to get my Christmas cards together
to mail out.. Talk about a headache! UGH!
I'm not sending out many because I realized
that most people don't seem to care about 
Christmas Cards anymore... So now I limit who
will receive a card from me... If your a Blogging
friend of mind and I have your address... you'll probably
get one! Certain friends of mine will and very few family
members will. And you've all seen the cards I've been
making, but I never finish the insides at the same time, unless
it's a card I had planned to send ASAP to someone.... :)
So I'll try and get them all done and mailed by Monday!
Wish me luck on that! hahaha
I know you're not here to listen to me
ramble about my Christmas Cards thing..
So here's another card to add to my collection! :o)

Card Stock - Stampin', Up, Bo Bunny
Designer Paper - Echo Park (Tis the Season)

something I posted this week! I did have fun 
sharing what I've been making! Trust me...

I'm a "Flip Card" Addict! I truly
do LOVE them! Everything is right

quick to make & puts action on your card too!

and are ready to take on the family's that
visit you this year! :)
My youngest gets out early from
school today & starts his 
winter vacation, so we are

Candle light....

Hello for the 2nd time today!
In the last year I have found myself
gravitating toward wood working
projects. I have a friend who makes the
most adorable wood crafting projects.
So I thought, I can make those too...
Not like hers of course, but ones that
show my personality through...

So here is something I made &
it only cost me 75¢ for the wood piece.

I'm so HAPPY with how this project turned out!

Designer Paper - Bo Bunny (Elf Magic)
Ribbon - Stampin' Up
Mod Podge
Holly & Berries - My Stash
Flames - Yellow Embossing Powder
I couldn't find a yellow/orange color for the
flames so I improvised! I did find some at the store
later on, so I'll fix it... But this is sitting on a shelf
in my living room. 
 I'm entering this into the Challenge over at:
