Season's Tweetings Tag

I created another tag for the 25 Days of Tags that Tracey McNeeley is hosting.

 I loved her tag from day #10.  It inspired the background on my tag and also the previous tag I posted. Here is her tag:

I was also inspired by the button and ribbon on the top of Leigh Penner's day #19 tag.  You can see it here:

I am also entering this card in the Lawnscaping Challenge #115....In With The Old.  I have owned the Season's Tweetings Set for a couple of years and I LOVE it.  I use it every year.  I also have had the hillside die with the trees  for awhile but these two tags that I did this week were the first time I used this wonderful die.

Finally, I am also entering this tag in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

Thanks for stopping by.  Enjoy Thanksgiving and your long weekend if you live in the US.  I have been on vacation all week and have been loving it.

Happy Birthday Gabe

This is another page for my brother-in-law and sister-in-law's scrapbook.  One more page and it is full for them.  I am giving it to them for Christmas.  I love to scrap pictures of their adorable kids.  And having 4 children under the age of 7 AND working full time, Cheri sure does not have the time to do any scrapbooking.  This is a picture of Gabriel on his 4th birthday have a piece of the birthday cheesecake that he requested his mom make him....too funny!

I used this great sketch from Laura Whitaker for Stuck? Sketches:

That's about it for tonight.  I hope all the readers of my blog have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

So Very Thankful

I just love the little hedgehog on this 3x4 journaling card so I stamped on it and used it on the front of a Thanksgiving card for my niece and her family in North Carolina.  I used this awesome sketch from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and am entering it in their November 18th Wonderful Wednesday Anything Goes Challenge

I am also entering this card in Simon Says Stamp's Wednesday Thanksgiving Challenge.

Thanks so much for stopping by~

Winter Penguin tag

Wow!  I did not realize that is has been over a week since my last blog post.  We have been very busy and I have not had a whole lot of time to craft or blog.  I am on vacation all this week so I hope that changes but the week has already started off very busy.  At least I got this sweet little tag created today.  Tracy McNeely is having her 25 Days of Tags again this year. 

 I soooo loved all the tags and inspiration last year that I was excited to see it again this year.  My tag (pictured above) is actually inspired by Tracy herself and this tag of hers from Day #10.  In addition to all the inspiration there are some awesome prizes as well.

I thought it looked like a quick and easy tag...HA! It took me nearly 2 hours to make .  And the first tag I spent time on was too small for the penguin and the sentiment.  I saved it and will be able to use it on a card or for another tag. 

I have had this sweet little stamp for a couple of years and must admit that it is still one of my favorites.  This is the first I have used it this year.  I am also entering this tag in Lawnscaping's In With The Old challenge to use an older Lawn Fawn stamp.

Thanks for stopping by....have you made any tags this holiday season?

Sending A Little Something

I was going for a cozy, rustic look with this Christmas card and I think I achieved it.  I will be enclosing some cash or a figt card in here for the lucky receiver of this card so they can do a little after Christmas shopping.

I used this lovely sketch (I just rotated the position of the tag) from Viva La Verve sketches:

I am also entering this card in The Cat's Pajamas Anything Goes Tuesday Challenge.

Thanks for stopping by....hope your weekend was wonderful and your upcoming week productive.

Day 3

I actually surprised myself because between last night and today, I got 3 Project Life pages done.  AND, I have been sick!  I have been coughing up a storm as my hubby and I have upper respiratory infections.  But we got some good meds from the doctor last night so I feel like I am on the mend.  And my mojo was flowing so I went with it.  I do think I am going to bed early tonight with a big dose of Nyquil.

There is a new challenge blog and this one is concentrating on sketches for pocket pages.  I know several gals on their design teams so I have been wanting to work with the sketches. This is sketch #1 from Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style

I used it for my title card for the 3rd birthday page in my August documenting.  My hubby really spoiled me this year with a fabulous 4 day weekend and this was day #3:

He did a complete remodel for me of my creative space for my birthday -- new paint and flooring and we rearranged the furniture.  He ever built me a stand up work bench because it is much healthier to stand than sit.  But that is coming in my September pages.

Well, I am going to attempt to go back to work tomorrow so I better start getting ready to hit the hay.  I go to bed early because on work days we are up before 5am...ick.


Pizza Night

My hubby and I have both caught a bad upper respiratory bug and were home from work today.  I took the opportunity to work on my birthday pages for my August pocket pages.  Dave really spoiled me this year and gave me a long 3 day celebration for my birthday. On the first day (which was my actual birthday) we went into Orlando (about 90 minutes away) to see some sights and then to dinner at Giordano's for Chicago stuffed pizza.  We are originally from the Windy City and Giordano's was one of my favorites when I lived up there.  I am thrilled that they now have locations in Tampa and Orlando when we get a craving for a taste of home.

I used this sketch from Sketches in Thyme Project Life Style for the journaling card on the left:

Here is the page that I used it on:
