What a busy couple of weeks!  We have put our home on the market and had 3 offers the first day.  We found a place and will now be in the process of packing and moving.  Whew!  I haven't had a lot of time to craft, but hope to do so once I get packed and wait for moving day.

I found the template for this card from Paper Crafts Magazine.  It was fun and easy to make and of course I got to use my Cricut for the holly and tab on the insert.  I thought this would be a great Christmas card to put a picture on!

Flashback Friday 16.0

Yea!  A new Flashback Friday!!!  This is so fun and so easy to do.  The challenge is your first tag you made and posted to your blog.  Mine is a Christmas tag that I cut out tiny little holly leaves and added tiny little bling to it!  Any and everyone can play...check out Flashback Friday 16.0!

October Stamp of the Month

October Stamp of the Month
I just love our new Stamp of the Month and it goes so well with our Cricut Cartridge!  These stockings are adorable!  I cut out the stockings for this card at 3.25 inches and of course you can cut them out by hand too.  This card is my version of the card on page 141 in the Close to My Heart Idea book.  If you are interested in this Stamp of the Month or interested in a catalog, please email me at

World Card Making Day!

Are you crafting today? I am cleaning house and getting ready for family to come over for a salmon feast! Hubby is making his famous mango salsa for the salmon we caught...super yummy!

Here is another Christmas card for my upcoming workshop on October 1st. I used CTMH's Art of Philosophy Cricut cartridge, coordinating stamp set "Snowflakes" D1480, Grey Flannel and Crystal Blue inks.

Have a wonderful day and Happy Crafting!!!
