In his wonderful reindeer sleigh,
Santa would whisk us all away;
Flying merrily,

Non stop to the NORTH POLE!!


I created this fun card using a digital image from Craftin Desert Divas called Grumpy Christmas. Of course I had to add some sparkle to both of them so I used some stickles for that. Al the card stock is from my stash, and I used Artify markers to color everything in. The stamp and tag its on is from Jaded Blossom. Then I inked it with some CTMH color.  


Next head on over to Santa's workshop to visit with Kim

Connie Can Crop Monthly Challenge ~ 65

This is Connie's last challenge for 2017!!! EEK! This year totally blew by me! Lets kick off the month with something fancy. 


You must create either a 3D project or a card with a fancy fold. 

I went with the 3D project this month! I found a great exploding ornament box in the Silhouette store to use. The pattern paper is all Echo Park "Holly Jolly Christmas" and the solid paper is ll from DCWV Mariposa stack. Lots of glue, lots of pop dots and some burnt fingertips from the hot glue for the ribbon! But, I absolutely love this set!

Thanks for stopping by!

Miss Kate Cuttables Guest Designer

Hey everyone! 
I had the great pleasure of guest designing for Miss Kate Cuttables again! I created this great little holiday decor using their Reindeer Names file. 


I had some wood boards I bought from Michaels a while back on clearance. Painted it all white and then used vinyl for the design. I just have to put a little hook on the back side and it will be ready to hang up! 

Hope you enjoyed my project!

For my project today, I made a Give Thanks shaker card. The card and the subway art all came from Silhouette. I did a print/cut on for the wording. I didn't have anything for the clear layer except for a really thick plastic from a frame! Good thing you can't see the edges on that! HAHA! Sequins came from the dollar tree and I have had those flowers in my stash for the longest time! 


Please hop on over to Rebecca next.

It's time to get schooled!


We have been in school for almost a month now down here in South Florida. I don't really make anything for their teachers in the beginning, but I sure hook them up at teacher appreciation week! 

I used all scrap paper for everything, and all of my dies and stamps came from Jaded Blossom! 

Please say a little prayer for my family this weekend. We will be enduring Hurricane Irma Saturday night, into all day Sunday. This will be my first hurricane, and we are a little nervous! I do blizzards, not hurricanes! LOL See you all when power is restored!

Hang Ten Dudes and Dudettes!!

I made a few different things for this hop!

First, I have this great stack of paper I bought from an outlet store...its from Me & My Big Ideas and its sort of like thick wrapping paper! I bought it for 3 of the sheets! LOL I have been wanting to fill a little spot by my desk so I made a little sign using the paper and some vinyl. I designed it & cut with my Silhouette. (sorry for my shadow in it!)


Next, I made myself a tank top! I love mermaids if you haven't noticed. Actually, I love anything related to the beach/nautical! LOL I spent a 2 solid hours designing this one and am so happy with it! Hard to tell in the picture but its a navy blue tank top
with a mint green (ish) design using HTV. 


And finally, I just started using a planner and found one I love! Its a happy planner from Me & My Big Ideas (MAMBI). I started making my own clips for it and used some dies from Jaded Blossom from one of their recent releases.



Now SURF on over to Kim

DT Day ~ Paper Nest Dolls

Hey everyone! Today is my day to post over at Connie Can Crop. I am going to share with you a card I made using a digital stamp from our sponsor, Paper Nest Dolls.


I used Fairy Emma with unicorn for my stamp. I went with our challenge theme of watercolors and colored her in with some water color crayons I found at Michaels the other day. Not a big fan of them as they are super wide and hard to get the small spots! I stamped the sentiment with a stamp from Jaded Blossom and the sequins are from Close to my Heart. 

Thanks for taking a peek!
