You're The Sprinkles On Top!

Good, good morning too you!
It is almost Halloween, only a few days away.
I probably sound like a broken record but where
did this month go?
Our son Robin's little family carved the most 
coolest pumpkins this year.

Today, it is about donuts and sprinkles for
this girl. Have you ever had such a bad 
craving for something? My craving of choice
was a donut and man I wasn't driving to town for one.
So out came my Hole Foods stamp set
Clear stamps, donuts, yoga, memes, stamping, card making
It wasn't meant to be but coloring one up was
just as good *wink*.
My pink donut was colored using Copic Markers.
The punch and papers are all from Stampin' Up.
Also used were pop ups, scissors and my Misti.

Join us each day at The Project Bin blog
my fellow team mates, always have
such amazing inspiration each day of the week.

Thank you so much for stopping by and for all comments
they brighten my day.
Happy crafting!

Jack O' Lantern

Hello and Happy Thursday.
It has been another couple of days filled with wonderful
volleyball. Can you tell I just love the game.
It is always awesome to watch teams develop from the start 
of the year.

Creative Knockouts has a brand new challenge
because you guessed it,

We are on Challenge number
Embossing Delight (wet or dry embossing)

I used dry embossing with 3 different folders.
One from Stampin' Up (wood grain)
One from Cuttlebug (swiss dots)
One from Sizzix (mixed dots)
I did find it hard to capture all of the fantastic embossing elements,
so you have tons of pictures.
Our amazing sponsors are Little Miss Muffet Stamps
and they let me use 
to highlight for you today!

I used Copic Markers to color the image 
while I was watching some Netflix (wink)
Spellbinders die to highlight the image, then
Gina Marie Designs x-stitch circle die
Stampin' Up scallop punch
I used dimensionals to pop up the circle.

North Pole

Good morning to you all! Sorry my post is up late today,
as apparently, I thought it should go live at 6 pm tonight not am.
A little hick up in the start of my Monday. Now that I am up and going
here is what is going on...

We had a crazy weekend full of birthday parties and lot's
of volleyball. Our daughter and her team brought home
the Gold metal from this tournament. It was so very exciting to watch
and cheer them on.

So today, being Monday it means, I have a 
brand new creation for you using a stamp set
card making, winter, winter card ideas, snow, north pole, sentiments, stamping, paper crafts, clear stamps, hand made cards, hand stamped cards, card ideas
It is called North Pole.
 I just love this set and had a blast coloring up the image
with my copic markers. The white area's are filled in
with glitter called Dazzling Diamonds from Stampin' Up.
The paper is all from Stampin' Up and the oval and circle dies are too.
I love the pattern papers, they remind me of a really 
nice rustic Christmas and the sentiment is awesome.
I bet we all know a lot of people in our lives that 
we love from the North Pole and back.

This stamp set is another hit for Denise.
It also feels good getting a start on my Christmas cards
this year.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Cards in Envy - Favorite Holiday Card Challenge (flat nothing popped up).

has come up with another brand new and awesome 
set called North Pole.

Don't you just love the each stamp
and the fonts are fabulous.
It has been out for a couple of weeks
and boy was I super excited when
going to the mailbox and seeing this
stamping goodness there.
When I saw this sentiment and the script of it,
the pattern paper from
Bo Bunny came to mind and so did this card sketch.
Out came my Gina Marie stitched circle die, my 1 inch circle punch,
my banner die and snowflake die from Sizzix.
The sentiment was stamped using Momento tuxedo black ink.
It just makes the sentiment pop on the color of this  paper.

Autumn Breeze

Good morning! Welcome to my blog. 
It is hard to believe how fast October is flying by.
Exciting too, for the kids as they are almost half way done
their first semester. We have been watching our daughter
play volleyball and just finding that the days seem to be 
going at warp speed. I will be getting my eye's dialated today
so I won't be looking so good...hee hee. For some reason
it takes my eyes 48 hours to completely go back to normal.

We have a brand new challenge up at Creative Knockouts.
Kelly has a fun Fall challenge for us. Except we might
have skipped most of fall with the snow fall we keep having.
It melts and then it comes back. Praying that our farmers
will still be able to get their crops off before permanent snow.

Challenge #267 - FALL
We have an amazing sponsor this week The Paper Shelter
Thank you so much for sponsoring our challenge
and for letting me high light this wonderful image
called Autumn Breeze
Prize: 3 Images

My card above was colored using Copic Markers.
The flowers, staples, brad, embossing folder and pattern paper
just from my stash.
Early Epresso paper has been used for the base
and embossing the triangles.

I would like to enter my card into the Fab'n'Funky Challenge - #411 - Autumn Colors

Thank you so much for joining me today.
May your day be filled with many blessings.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of our Canadian family and friends!
My heart continues to be filled with joy
because I have you in it.
We gather on this day to be thankful for what we have,
for the family we love, for the friends we cherish, and 
for the blessings that will come.
Whether we are with family or friends let's take
time to say thanks for those here and for those who have passed
and give thanks for each moment past and present
and cherish it.

For The Project Bin today,
my card is using the stamp set
called Eat Pie

I really adore the sentiments in this set,
perfect for giving thanks.

The card above is made with unknown pattern paper
and stampin' up paper. I used scissors for the red strip
of paper and copic markers R27 for the leaf.

Come on over to The Project Bin

Have an amazing day!
To everyone who stops in for a peek at my cards
Thank you

to highlight for you today,
it is all about Christmas.

this card.
