FAB Feature Wednesday!

Hi Peeps!!
This weeks feature is Gingham Christmas Greeting!
I love this set.  You can't tell from the picture but the holly berries and the embossed Happy Holidays are both metallic red.  Happy Holidays isn't pink like it looks LOL
Everything is embossed and the paper is from gcd Studio.  I had never heard of them.  It is a little kit I got on clearance at Hobby Lobby but I love it.  I will be on the look out for more from them.
Please head on over to our blog and see what all my amazing co-chicks have made this this fantastic set!
I have been sick and this is my first time back to the gym.  I still feel pretty sick but I know if I miss more than 3 days my perfect habit will be broken so I am off!
Have a beautiful day!

WCMD Challenge #5

This challenge came from Stephanie and she wanted us to go with a Fall Theme!  I'd like to ask her who's opinion defines Fall??  LOL  She is so sweet I am sure she will accept this!  It seemed Fall-like to me last night, LOL  This morning it isn't feeling very Fallish LOL
The flock on the Kaiser paper shouted FALL to me last night LOL
This You Make Me Mushy Itty Bitty, well it does make me mushy!  It is so stinkin' cute!  I had a blast embossing and paper piecing the mushrooms.  You need this one if you like to paper piece!  I can't wait to emboss it 4 more times and make another card!
You Make Me..
  Please come join us HERE
This catches me up on the WCMD challenges.  Now I just need to do the Grand Finale, YIPPEE!!!
Thanks for stopping by! 

OH How I Love FWF Friday's!!

Happy Friday Peeps!!
 I made this card for the Chicks Fabulous Feature and missed the deadline.  It worked perfectly for my post for the design team I am on Creative Cuts and More, that is where I got this fun Four Pane Window A7 Scallop Card
I love this Santa from naughty. nice. not sure. 
OK, so because I am just too honest, this paper is upside down!  It was right side up attached perfectly.  I saw the trees in the dark green were upside down so I tore it up and flipped it.  Now the light colored trees are upside down.  *GASP*  I don't like this paper LOL
I hope your weekend plans are FUN!  I will be scrappin' with BFF all weekend WHOOP!!!
Come join us over at the Unity Blog for Friends With Flair!

Hi Peeps! Are you guys doing all the challenges?
This one Awesome Andrea gave us a

COLOR CHALLENGE!! How easy, right? Except I do not like Olive Sam I Am! LOL
I used it LOL as well as Cream, Brown and Pumpkin and I used that last one literally too! :)

That pumpkin is too tilted. Why didn't I see that before? LOL I made 2 pumpkins and wanted another one in the top corner but it was not working for me. I am not sure why, it could be the speck of olive paper *SNORT*
I embossed the brown background and the pumpkin with CuttleBug embossing folders. I used my new

KOM labeled {from ours to yours} The gems are Studio G.
Tomorrow BFF comes after work and stays until Sunday night! Her Honey is out of town so it is girls weekend at my house! We ARE getting up to workout Saturday morning! After that all bets are off and we might consume our body weight in beer and chips and quac while we scrap all night long! It has been MONTHS since we have scrapped all weekend. Truth be told it may have been February of 2011 the last time we did it. *GASP* Every morning at the gym while we struggle through we have ben doing the countdown. GAME ON!! Bring on the scrappin'!!

WCMD Challenge #4 A SKETCH!!!

That awesome Robyn drew us a sketch!  I LOVE a good sketch.
This one is super fun!!
Come join us and show us your take on it!!
Here is my take on it!
I love the paper freebie we got in this months SMAK kit! The sentiment is from Art & Possibility. I just bought this stamp and the matching die called Warmth & Winter Wishes plus Matching Die Pack it seems to be sold out at the moment.  If you just want the stamp you can get it HERESuper cute! 
However I cut this tree out!  I can't get the die to line up with the stamp to save my confused life!  Those little hole things on the outside of the die help how?  The holes on the inside of the die are to poke it out right?  Should I cut and then stamp?  I always stamp and then cut but I don't have any dies with tabs.  Please help me from going CRAZY  LOL 
Thanks so much for stopping by tonight!

WCMD Challenge #1

Lisa started off the fun day with a SHAPE CARD challenge, hurry come and join us!  We have until Saturday the 20th at midnight CST! [That is Minnesota time, 11 PM Colorado time if you ever get confused on occasion like me LOL]
I used a Standing Pop-Up Card from Creative Cuts and More.

The awesome banners are from MLS Banner Moment, oh how I love a good banner!!  I embossed the You're So Fun from  the 10/12 SMAK kit – {…track this, graph that}
The balloons are from Whimsical Birthday sadly it is retired.
I pester poor Ang and Andrea all the time to bring back the oldies.  There are some hunting sets and some beach sets I REALLY want and can't find them anywhere!!  I hope one day [when my checking account is full unlike today 1 day before payday LOL] they do an oldie release.  I might need to take a second mortgage out on the house!  LOL  I'm kidding, sorta LOL
OK I have 4 of the 8 done! I best get to scrappin'!  Bryan comes home from his hunting trip today, so no more single Mom for this Mama!  I will get some serious scrapping time!  YAHOOOOO!!
Thanks for stopping by, see you soon!! 

WCMD Challenge # 2 with UNITY!

Thienly had us use TEXTURE! I love texture! All sorts of texture and adding a bunch to one card makes me stinkin' HAPPY! LOL
Please come join us HERE.
I started with crimping the pattern paper and I am sorry but I have no idea who made it.  I never got rid of my crimper from 1996 [hoarder] I love running paper through it LOL  It makes me happy to see it come out wrinkled and it is a must for sour cream containers! Which I will be making all the time once Carlee starts school. 

I stamped the pennant from My Point of View {SMAK August 2012} on cardstock and then muslin I embossed the circle sentiment and the banner from the same SMAK kit.  The ribbon is from my stash and silk.  I am 99% sure it is Creative Impressions. 
I popped everything up for a little more dimension and called it good.  The thanks is from Lollipop Tree You & Me, such a darling set, I have to show you.Lollipop Tree You & Me 1
 Thanks so much for stopping by today!  Please join us in these WCMD challenges.  The prizes are AMAZING!  *swoon*

WCMD Challenge #7

My girl Carisa hosted this one and to no surprise it was COLORING!  Which I am awful at LOL  I don't own any Copics and I am afraid if I jump on that train I will never be able to afford another Unity stamp!!  LOL You can join us HERE.
I used my colored pencils and it is almost a disgrace to the darling Phylis Harris stamp All About Balance.
I picked the biggest bow I could find to draw your attention away from the awful coloring LOL  Oh, and I totally wanted her skin ton to look like that *snicker*
I put Glossy Accents on her Cons where the rubber is and I must say it is stinkin' cute!  I also love the Diamond Stickles on the tutu.  The paper is from a Dear Lizzy stack I picked up at Hobby Lobby, the ribbon is also from HL.  Those 50% off sales make me so very happy!!  The ticket square is a Life Style Crafts die I got at Archivers, I think there are 19, yes nineteen sizes.  For $24.99 and I used a coupon.  I thought that was a screaming deal.  I definitely want more!! 
When my favorite scrapbook store closed. 
I bought all of these American Craft square cards.  A HUGE pile for something crazy like a dollar.  I have been covering them for almost 5 years.  I cover store bought cards all the time do you?
Thank you so much for swinging by today.  Please join us over at Unity to shop and do all the challenges.  You will not be sorry if you win!  ;)
Have a great day!

Friday + FWF = LOVE

Hi Peeps!  I finally have time for FWF today!  I think I have missed 3 weeks *GASP*  I have a huge stock pile of stuff to pick from too.  I might be ignoring the blog but I am still stamping every day!  :)  I find that if I don't just take 15 minutes each night and do a little stamping even if it is just cataloging my stamps I get super grumpy!  LOL
Today I have a simple card.  I had to make duplicates for a donation so I needed quick and simple.
I used It's Your Day, I LOVE the sentiments!!  I love the different fonts!  Unity stamps are so awesome the way they use different fonts and make one stamp set so different!It's Your Day 1
 Head on over to the Unity Blog and join us!  As usual there are prizes!  <3 an="an" awesome="awesome" class="goog-spellcheck-word" don="don" forget="forget" from="from" is="is" new="new" release="release" span="span" style="background: yellow;" t="t" there="there">Authentique

World Cardmaking Day Unity challenge #3

The fabulous Renee Aslette picked EMBOSSING!!  *swoon* My favorite!  I can emboss for hours and never ever tire of it.  I love it!  If someone really wanted to torture me they would take away my heat gun.  I would be miserable.  [Then I would grab my old one that has a short in the cord LOL]  So it only made sense for me to start with this challenge!
When Unity had the My Little Shoebox release I was so lucky to win the Oh Deer collection from the MLS Blog!  YIPPEE!!!!
Everything came from their die cut sheet!  So much fun!  I slathered UTEE all over everything and it is so shiny.  I love that stuff.  It makes everything better!!

 I love that if you want it thicker while it is wet pour on more and emboss it again.
I embossed the flowers after I put them together and the UTEE doubles as glue!! 
Underneath the Secret Garden Butterfly Background is an embossed one.  It was too dark I thought *gasp* so I covered it up.  I love the layered look so I never have a problem covering up a mistake LOL  After I stuck down the stickers I used the corner of my embossing pad and 'colored' them and added UTEE!
OK, head over to the Unity Blog HERE and join the fun.  There are $1000.00 of prizes GASP!!  If you play in all the challenges you could win a YEAR of KOM or SMAK!  *SWOON*
Secret Garden 1
This is Secret Garden.  I love butterflies so much!!  This stamp is my favorite from this release!
Speaking of releases, did you see the Authentique release this morning and do the hop? It is so fantastic!  ALL of it is in my cart!  I keep finding randon stamps I had not seen before.  Flurry of Flakes??  SO CUTE!!!  There are even more prizes!  Unity is the most generous company out there. 
OK, now I have a story for you if you have made it this far.  While I was happily making this card one of those nasty pincher bugs fell from the ceiling and landed on my arm!!  I screamed like a girl and threw the card and the heat gun.  Scared me to death!  Yes I know he could have crawled up my chair but I prefer to think he was only on my arm and only for the .05 of a second it took me to scream and dance and get him off!  Ewwww! 
So much Unity fun going on!  If you order, I would be so greatful if you let the Unity Peeps know I sent you in the comment section!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!  Have a great weekend!
