More Gifts

Happy Holidays

This is a whole bunch of pencils and erasers I had to wrap for my little Lexie to take for her class. I thought it was a good idea--the teacher asked each child to bring a small gift for all in the classroom--like pencils or a small toy like you would have in party packs--something very inexpensive but this way all kids would get the same. Lexie chose pencils and erasers and believe it or not it took longer to wrap all these pencils then it did to make the Christmas mugs for all the teachers. I am sure she will be happy though and that is what counts.
Tomorrow I will be back to sharing cards (lol)

Wishing Seasons Best to you all.

It is beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Hi All,

Well this is what I worked on last night and this morning......10 Snowman Soup mugs for my grandkids to take to their teachers and the lil one's daycare.
They were fun to do and price efficient
for having to make that many.
I got my mugs at Dollar Tree, and the bags for them...Heck I even got the marshmallows, candy canes and hot chocolate there. I added a few Hershey's kisses and got into my stash of ribbons for the bows....so all and all not bad 10 gifts for less than $15.00. I hope their teachers like them.
Let me know what you think....
Til next time
Love and Happy Holidays to all...

Butterlies, butterflies, butterflies

It has been so bitter cold and snowy here I decided to warm things up a bit---in my mind anyway (lol)
I decided to post the card I made awhile back, to bring a little warmth to us--in our minds anyway. I just love butterflies and this card was so much fun to do....
After this one I will get back to some Christmas cards==as we only have 15 days left til the jolly ole man comes....

Would love to know what you think of my butterflies, if you gave the time
Have a nice warm night everybody....it is 8 degrees here--I hate to think what the wind chill is....
So long til next time...

How about something besides Christmas (lol)

Well decided to spice it up a bit tonight and post something other than a Christmas card....and something besides 3-D. This would make a darling Welcome to your new home card wouldn't it. It sure was a lot of fun to color. I do need to get back to my coloring--I am missing it.
Hope you like it.....would love to hear from you and whatever comments you might have.
Have a great day where ever you are. It is cold and snowy here in Michigan.

I think it is time

Hello Hello Hello

I think it is time to update my blog.
This is an oversized card from CraftsuPrint. I love doing 3-D although I must admit--I need to get back to stamping also.

Also an apology to all--but I had to go out and put restrictions on postings as I had at least one Anoyomous poster posting about meds like Vigara etc...totally ticked me off, so I have set it to have each post come to me for approval before posting to the blog---sorry I had to do that...but maybe it will get rid of the idiot who is doing it.
Sorry folks--just had to vent a little also.
Hope you enjoy my latest card....and all have a good night and a great weekend.

Tuesday, October 26, 2010

Have a great day one and all.

Judy's Birthday Card

Been a few days since I posted...so I wanted to share with you a birthday card I made for my lil sister who turned the big 50 this year.  For several years she had a couple of turtles---they started out those lil wee small ones you buy at the store---but when she had to get rid of them they were huge, so when I found this 3-D image I thought it was perfect for her.  I have had it done for sometime, but did not want to post it until after she received it.  She was surprised and liked it so I was happy...
Hope you like it too...
Have a great week--after all today is hump day....

Flowers and Glitter

Hi All
Tonight I decided to share a flower blossom---don't know what kind it is (lol)  I just thought it was pretty and fun to do.  I added glitter to the flower petals--which I don't do often.  I don't know why because I like it....just don't (lol)
It is a rather simple card, but I think the blossom is rather dramatic.
Hope you like it.

Lexie's Birthday invites

Hello Everyone
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend.
I am sharing the birthday party invites I made for my granddaughter.  She LOVES My Little Pony so I made her invites with them.
The pony was a colorbook page I shrunk down.  I colored the ponies with my Bic and Sharpies.  The little tag says A Birthday party for Lexie Gilman was punched with a Stampin Up punch, the leaves were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.  I embossed the background with the Swiss dot cuttlebug folder.  I am sure Lexie will love them.  I hope you liked them too.  The first here is a close up, and the second picture is the whole lot of them.  I made twelve.  Let me know what you think....
