Christmas in July Ho Ho Ho card

Merry Christmas in July, folks! No, I’m not crazy! I’m just here with my card for Shopping Our Stash  Challenge #424 – Christmas or Hanukkah in July! This theme is always a hard on for me because I have a hard time thinking of anything Christmasy while it’s over 100 degrees outside! But, I found this cute Santa sticker and thought that would be a fun card to finally make! So, here it is and I hope you like it and want to join in on the fun! See you there!

Hello, My Friend note card

Hello, my friends! I’m finally back with a card for Shopping Our Stash  Challenge #422 and the theme is one of my favorites – UFO’s! No, not the aliens flying around at night in the desert but “Unfinished Objects” on our desks or in our stash! I have had this little flower sitting on my desk for eons and now it finally made it to the note card I’ve been saving for it! Finally!! So what do you have laying around that you never finished? Let’s see it!



Best Day Ever floral card

Well, hello again!! It has been a very long while since I’ve posted due to another move and then a barrage of illnesses starting last July! I am better now and almost finished my craft room which was a huge endeavor because I had to majorly downsize! My last house had a huge loft and craft closet and now I’m in a regular bedroom so this has been hard! As I get closer to the finished project, I’ll share pics with you!

Anyway, I’m back and here is my first card for Always Fun Challenges  #165 Layers! I didn’t design this card myself and it is out of my comfort zone! My friend, Phyliss, taught me how to use the Color Burst concentrated watercolor powder! I hate getting messy so I had never tried them before and now that I have used them, I won’t do it again! LOL! It’s just too messy for me! I loved the cool effect but the powders blew everywhere and I’m a bit of a neat freak so, nope, never again. I pushed myself to try something new and that was fun but I will stick to regular water coloring so I can control it more!

I do hope you try something new and join us for the challenge! I can’t wait so see what you create!!

Graduation Treat Holders

Hi, there! Thanks for stopping by to see my Design Team project for Always Fun Challenges Challenge #121 Anything But A Card challenge! I have been waiting to share some of the things I had been doing while I was waiting for my house to be finally be finished being built! This was the treat holders I made for my niece’s high school graduation! We had a great time coming up with something funny for the tables! I hope you like it! These are little two sided treat holders that had a confetti popper and a candy with a graduation cap on it inside! My niece loved them!

We also made some table decorations! We hoped people wouldn’t get offended but we were having fun!

We forgot to take pictures at the graduation dinner but I did take one right after we finished making them! The crepe paper roll looked like toilet paper and the poop we bought from the Dollar Tree! They are kid’s toys that barf brown slime when you squeeze them! We just threw the brown yucky slime away! The googly eyes were an after thought and I think these table decorations are hilarious! See you at the challenge!!
