Party Time Tuesday #27, Anything Goes.

How stinking cute is this image? I had to get it as soon as I saw it on the All That's Scrap blog. I grabbed the digi version of her. (I'm so glad to have a printer now that works with digis. Opens up a whole new world, and saves a little on the pocket book too!) She's a perfect sweet little thing for a birthday card!

It's time to party again at Party Time Tuesdays! It's an Anything Goes, just make a birthday card with the sentiment on the front of your card, link it up to the Party Time blog, and while you're there see what the design team came up with for you today! Lots of eye candy! You can also get to the Design team by clicking on the right side of my blog! It's the last day to Party with the team in 2010! This year has just flown by!

Miracle Futtering.

Man, I've been slacking! At least on blogging. I've been very busy crafting making gifts and such for family and friends. We've had some snow, too! We hardly get snow! The kids are out of school for the holidays. We had parties planned for schools, but snow days made it so no parties where to be had at school. Bummer! All that cutting I did for Trey's teacher's crafts. I was bummed! I love those handmade items the kids make in school.

Anyhow, had a little bit of time to stamp since I've finished up some Christmas stuff. Saw a DT call for Flutterby Weds. Thought I'd toss my name in the hat. I do love to play along with them. Had to play along with Mojo Monday. Been ages since I've sat down and played both challenges.
Crazy how busy life gets sometimes. I love participating in challenges. I've enjoyed both DTs that I was on this year, creating for the challenges, and seeing what the other DT come up with for the challenges! Amazes me their take on stuff. Than going to blogs from bloggers who played along. So much talent out there!

My Magnolia card is an image given to me from Tammi. Such a sweet little image. The paper is from DCWV, Mango stack. It's full of bright colors, which is perfect for me! She's colored with copics and topped off with some stickles. The sentiment is from a SU stamp set.
My second card uses TAC supplies. The fairy is from a sweet set from Mabelle R. She makes such cute images. The paper is from More Mimi, which is one of my favorites from TAC. Can't beat that color palette! Greens, pinks, and browns! So nice! Parts are cut out and popped up. She's paper pieced, and topped off with stickles.
This is my second post for the day, so be sure to peak at the Party Time Tuesday post below this one.

Party Time Tuesday #26, Red, Green, White.

Fun color challenge today at Party Time Tuesdays. Perfect colors for a Dec birthday. I decided to use a Victoria Case image from Susana's store. Thought she'd look super cute in red and white. I paper pieced her hat, and added some stickles to her pants, hats, and flowers. We'd love for you to join us over at the Party Time blog. Be sure to check out the design team cards. You can view them by clicking on the links to the right of my blog. You'll be happy you stopped by to see what they've made.

Supplies: copics, nesties, Verve Big Wish sentiment, EK punch, stickles.

NOEL Chargers

I've been playing with my Cricut again! Love that tool! Anyhow, Target has these chargers, in packs of four. They have four colors, silver, red, green and gold. I thought it would be fun to cover them with the vinyl in Christmas themes. I used my Winter Woodlands cartridge to make the letters. I cut each of them to 6 inches. I used a snowflake instead of an O for the o in noel. I cut out different snowflakes from a few different cartridges, Christmas, Joys Of The Season, and Winter Woodland. Naturally, you need a little bling, so I added gems to the snowflakes, and sequins. Now, I just need to decide if I want to hang them off my curtain in the kitchen, or on the wall with ribbon.
My neighbor made some too, but used sentiments in the center of her chargers, which looked great too. Can we say cool easy Christmas gifts?!

Thsoe pretty snowflakes are also adorning a room in my house. I cut out a bunch of snowflakes in larger sizes and put them on my bay window in my dining room, and on my front door. Fun and easy decorating. I'm thinking they would look neat looking like a snow flurry on a wall by a entrance way.
