Sorry no post so far today

I wanted to let my loyal followers, and I want you all to know how much appreciate each and every one of you who stops by regularly to see what I’ve done,  that I don’t know when or if I will post my latest project today.I did get started on my next project for today’s post, but I’ve been dealing with some flu strain and haven’t done much else besides sleep and lay in bed.  I am feeling a little better and my fever has come down a little so I’m hoping I can get in my scrap studio this afternoon. So until then I’ll give you a peek at what I’m working on. 


I’ll have lots of picture to show you when I’m done.  Until then I hope every one of you has a wonderful and productive day.

Remember that Taco Bell Box?


It’s got a new life and tomorrow it will hold some yummy brownies I’m making for my husband to take to work. It’s such a nice size for this or a small pan of cinnamon rolls.  I’ll line the inside with waxed paper and pink tissue paper and who would know it once held Taco Bell. 

P1070968I used a couple of sheets from the My Mind’s Eye Love Nest stack and cut out the birds in the nest to pop them up from the design on the paper and added some Prima flowers along with some others I had in my stash.  I added pink rhinestones for the centers.  The ribbon is from Hobby Lobby and is a perfect match to the paper. 

I just measured the box and cut my paper to match and it worked out.

The sentiment is made with Alphalicous and was welded with my Gyspy.

A Banner for my mantel or maybe . . .

I really don’t know where I’m going to put this banner.  I’ll have to experiment with where it looks best.   Isn’t it pretty! 

For this banner I used the lips from Indie Art, and the tags came from Winter Frolic.  The font is Mickey and I used the scalloped circle from Mini Monograms.  I also used the heart from Doodlecharms.  The paper was from my stash. The black and off white patterned papers are from Hobby Lobby, the red and white polka dot is Daisy D’s, and the cardstock is mostly Cord’nations. 

The largest tag is 4” high. 


The paper flowers are from Hobby Lobby.  I tried to make them look like little bouquets. 


I faux stitched all the layers and popped each layer up with dimensionals. P1070958






And so that’s it for today!  I hope you are warm and safe during this really bad storm.

A Heart and a Cow

I’ve got two cards for you today.   They are both for my husband and are tied to the little gifts I give him.  My husband loves candy—more than me, so some of my little gifts are candy and these two cards will accompany candy he likes.  This first card is going to accompany some Fire Balls.  He loves these.  He will be so happy. 


That heart comes from Indie Heart and it’s the first image I’ve used from this cartridge.  It seemed the right choice for this card.  It’s a 5x7” card and the paper is from DCWV and the cardstock is a mix of scraps from my scrap drawers. The phrase is cut from Pooh font and the wood feature.  I welded the phrase with my Gypsy. 


I sprayed the heart with Tattered Angels Glimmer mist Gold, and when I was done I held it in front of my little space heater because I wanted it to dry fast and this caused the strange looking mottling and cracking!  I like it!  It wasn’t my intent but I like it!  P1070941

This next card is sort of silly but I really like how it tuned out and I think Jim will get a laugh out of it.  It sort of just came to me and I made the cut file with my Gypsy. 

This card will accompany a box of Milk Duds. P1070944

I know it’s pink but I think it works for the card!  The cow is from Paper Doll Dress Up, and I cut it out 4 times.  I cut it once in pink for the face and udders, once in tan for the horns, once in black and once in white.  I used my little scissors and cut the spots out on the white to give the cow some spots.  I trimmed off the hooves, the tail as well as the very top of the head.  Looks pretty good I think.  The font is Alphalicious and was welded with my Gypsy.  The cartoon bubble is from Smiley Cards and scalloped rectangle is from Mini Monograms and I stretched it one way.  The patterned pattern is from DCWV All Dressed Up Stack.  Cute, huh! 

This card is another 5x7 and when I embossed the pink card stock with my Cuttlebug, I had to do it in several passes. It’s easy with the Dotted Swiss folder because it’s so easy to match the pattern. 




And that’s it for today.  I’ll be working in my studio putting together some new projects because we are in the middle of a major winter storm complete with freezing rain and massive inches of snow!.  I’m so happy I am be warm and snug in my house.
