Balloon Ride

The monthly challenge at From the Heart Stamps was Balloon Ride.  I wasn't sure what to do with it so I waited til the last min.  I decided to combine it with the Stella Says Sketch challenge.  It turned out pretty well I think. Get Inky Designs challenge is Upward and Onward so I am entering this there as well.

Gingerbread Girl Tags

The  challenge at Silhouette Online Store is  modified Shapes.  I designed this  neat little  Gingebread girl gift tag for the ever growing  pile of  gifts for Christmas.  I will also include this  in the Eureka Stamps Christmas Challenge.

3 more Days

This poor little  turkey is counting  the days  til Thanksgiving! He fits  perfectly in the Cut It Up countdown challenge.  I used my  silhouette to  cut out the easel card, the scalloped frame and to print and cut the  turkey.

This little  Tomboy loves her  tubing and so do I!  She is just adorable.  She is from Little Miss  Muffett.  I needed to do my  What if Wednesday Sketch Challenge and the Party Time Tuesday Challenge so I could be  caught up  this week.  I combined both of them and thought that card was  quite cute.

Sledding 2

The challenge at Little Miss  Muffett is a White out!   All white background but a colored image.  I textured the top background with a  faint  snow fall. The  textured the bottom with a heavier snow fall.  I thought it was perfect for this  little guy to go sledding!  I used the  sketch from craftspot as  my  design.  GlitternSparkles Challenges is also Snow.  Inkspirational has an anything goes  Challenge this week and IncyWincy Designs challenges is One for the Men!  C.r.a.f.t. Challenges also has a snowy picture as  their  challenge inspiration this week.

Claudia Sketch

I missed  I heart Sketches last week so I had to make sure I made it this week.  I had an extra Claudia on my desk so I decided she was a  perfect  fit for this card. 


The  challenge this week at Tuesday Throw down is Snowbirds!  I absolutely Love this little  penguin sipping on his  cocoa.  I've  used  him in so many  things already but I am surely not finished with him yet.

Grateful Harvest

I saw this  card in the Silhouette Online Store and decided to use it for the following Challenges.  It isn't quite perfect because my  machine had  a difficult time cutting it but I will  work on it some more in a bit to fix its imperfections. 

Eureka Stamps- Thanksgiving Themed Cards
Repeat Impressions-Giving Thanks
QKRstampede-Give Thanks
Catch the Bug- Photo Challenge
Little tangles- Give thanks
Parade Your Crafts- Grateful

I saw this darling hat shaped card in the Silhouette Online  Store and just had to cut it for my daughter who is really into  the western theme.  I added the QKR stampede cowboy to dress it u a  bit and to make it  fir more into their challenge.

Meljen's Challenge this week is one word cards!   I merged  these two meljen designs and then kept the card simple.  I  like how they  look together.  I  am  also  using this card for the Sketch Saturday  Challenge.

Snowman tags

The   challenge at Silhouette Online is Gift Wrap Elements.  I made these  tags for some early gifts I need to wrap before they are seen since they are too big to hide anywhere but in plain  sight.  GlitternSparkle's challenge is called Tag It so these  should work there as well.

Reindeer Bag

I saw this  reindeer Bag in the Silhouette Online Store and thought he would be perfect for the C.r.a.f.t gift bag Challenge and the Creative Cutting anything Christmas but a card challenge. He was  a quick and easy cut.   

Telescoping Snowman

As I look  out my  window and realize it is the  19th of November, I am having a real  hard time  thinking about winter.  It is 83 degrees outside.  Shorts and barefoot weather in November~  Something is wrong with this  picture but anyway!  For the Repeat Impression's Snow Challenge I decided to try  a telescoping card.  I saw this on Pinterst and thought t was a cute idea.  So here is my  version of it.  Clear it Out has a  snowflake  challenge so I will use it there as well.

Monday, November 18, 2013


The  challenge at  Clear it Out was  S'mores.  I wasn't  quite sure what to do with it but I had this  moose from a  Little Scraps of heaven Set and decided to use it with the s'mores  word from silhouette online.

Jar with Seashells

Craft Spot's Challenge is  a Pinterest  inspired photo of  mason jar and  the colors pink and blue.  I've been wanting to use my jar for a  while.  I made it a jar shaped card and  added some sea shells I cut using some  dies I bought several months ago and  hadn't used.  After  cutting the sea  shells I took them outside an sprinkled them lightly  with  sand to give them a  more  realistic look. With the Acetate over them I think they look pretty  good. I will also use this  card for the Party Time  Tuesday Challenge this week.

Be Thankful

Ok I found another  turkey  laying on my desk and decided I might as well use  him before I lose him.  I saw that Incy Wincy Designs has a Gratitude Challenge and so  does Tuesday Throwdown and Parade Your Crafts I am  going to use this card for all three challenges.  I used my silhouette to  cut  the  squares and to cut Be Thankful out.  Again I had to use  the trusty paint  chips to  cut eh  words  the size I wanted them.  So far paint chips have not let me down. They always  cut perfectly.

Thanksgiving Turkey

For the I Heart Sketch challenge I chose this  sweet turkey!  I think his  colors came out really nice.  I wasn't real  sure about the  circles but they  seemed to work out pretty well.  I also intend to use this  card for the Love to Create Challenge and the 2 Creative Chicks Thanksgiving Challenge. 


I saw this  loopy  wreath  in the  Silhouette Online Store and  was anxious to make it. It is quite cute and has unlimited potential for uses.  Im  using it in the Little Tangles shaped card challenge.  Little Tangles also posted their caring hearts drive.  For this  drive they make and send  cards to the people living in nursing facilities who may not have  families and wont receive cards or gifts or maybe even a visit for Christmas.  I made  10 of these to distribute to residents at the local  nursing home so that I can  spread a little Christmas spirit there.  I will also use this  card at Curtain Call and CAS-ual Friday   for their  Casual Christmas Challenge. Silhouette Challenges also has a Holiday themed Challenge which I will enter.

I  absolutely love  Little Miss Muffet's Heidi~  I use her for lots of things and always have several on my desk ready to be colored.  Today I chose to use her on this Sketch Saturday card for their  challenge and for the  photo inspired challenge at  Crafty Catz as well as Little Miss Muffet's Spots and Dots Challenge. 


I saw this cornucopia on  silhouette and had been  wanting to cut it but was a bit hesitant because it had so many pieces.  It cut  beautifully. But I did  use paint  chips I picked up from Lowes for the vines and  word.  The  paint chips will cut  most anything perfectly the first time. I will use this  card for  the  Silhouette Online Weekly Challenge instead of using the  sketch pens.  I will also use it in the Creative Cutting Thanksgiving Challenge

Fall Scene

The Challenge at GlitternSparkle is Autumn.  I think this  little mouse  with the  pumpkins under the  falling leaves  is perfect.

Reindeer Box

Today  I made this  cute reindeer box.  I needed  something to hide an early  Christmas Gift so there it is.  Because I  put a tag on it I will be using for the Tuesday Throw Down Tags Challenge!

Sunday, November 10, 2013


The  challenge at  PartyTime Tuesday is  Thanksgiving/ ThankYou Notes so  made this fall leave card and  added  thankful to the  side of it.  I enjoyed making it and  like how it turned out.  I will also use this card at Cardztv.

witch mouse 2

I promise this is my LAST  Halloween card for this year.  I got behind and  didn't make a post for the  Meljen Scaredy Pants Challenge.  So here it is!  I used the sketch from Repeat Impressions so that I could also use it there and help get caught up with all my  challenges. 

Lil Spook

I've had this   Lil Spook on  my desk since before Halloween because I wanted to use  him and never got around to it.  Little  Miss Muffett still  has one more Halloween Challenge so there he is~!  I also used the Saturday Sketch as my  layout.

Leaf Me

I made this  cute leafy  card and  then used him for   several challenges.  He was  smaller than I really wanted but sometimes things  work out that way.

The challenges I'm using him for  are:
Stella Says  Sketch
C.r.a.f.t   One for the Boys
Repeat Impressions- Paper Piecing
IncyWincy- Twine, ribbon or Fibre
Eureka Stamps- leaves
GlitternSparkle-fall leaves

Eureka stamps' challenge this week is  just a note.  I  thought this  little  pop up toaster would  fit just perfectly! 


Today I needed  something  quick and easy  because I overlooked the red and white challenge at Incy Wincy.  It ends today and I Had to think quick to come up with a plan.  Well  Here it is! There I had a bright idea that since it  did say welcome  why not use it for  the Curtain Call welcome Home Challenge as well.

Saturday, November 2, 2013


I saw this great turkey in the  Silhouette Online Store and just had to  cut  him.  I just love how he turned out.  I will enter  him in the Silhouette Challenges Holiday Challenge and the Cut it Up Thanksgiving Challenge.

Sea Pony

From the heart has a Sketch Challenge this week.  I had to work had  at making it work but with a  little patience and determination I think I made something that will work.  I also used  the digital stamp from Imagine that so I can use it there as well. Then I realized  why not use it in the Craftspot Color Challenge and Crafty Catz paper Piecing Challenge.  Here is their  sketch format.

Pick of the Patch

The  challenge this week at Whimsie Doodle is Fall Ya'll.  I've had this little pumpkin digital on my desk for a while and wasn't  sure  what to do with her.   She fits  perfect in this  challenge.  I also used the Stella Says Sketch as  the layout.

Feeling Fruity

The  challenge at Bug a Boo is a  picture with lots of  fruits and veggies in it.  I made this simple  stack of  fruit for my  vision of that picture.


The challenge at digi Darla is fright night~  How much more fitting that this big  ole Frankenstein shaped card.  I cut  him out with my  cameo and the cut was a little difficult on the green paper, so I cut him out of white and colored him green.  Then  when I snapped the pic it  looks more brown than green. Oh well he's still Frankenstein.
