Happy Tuesday.  I hope this finds you having a super great day! I am sad to say I will no longer be posting to my blog on a daily basis. It seems as if life has just gotten in the way.  I will be taking the month of September off to catch up.  I hope to be back in October with some great mini albums, cards and craft fair items.  I am leaving you with some cute cartoons.

  God bless and Happy crafting.

It's Always Tea Time

Happy Monday.  Are you a tea lover? Today I have some tea holders for you.  I made these for my Mom, Grandma and two Aunts.  We had breakfast at my house on Friday and I wanted to give them a little something to take with them.  

I made these at the last minute so I usually add some
kind of embellishment to the pockets.  Oh well
next time....

A cup of Tea makes everything better. 
Have a Blessed Day

Pumpkin tag pocket

Happy Wednesday. You are probably wondering why I am sharing Halloween crafts with you in August.  Well I came across this blog "Scrapnnana.blogspot.ca" and she made this cute little pocket using a Martha Stewart punch.  Of course I didn't have the punch she used and for a moment I thought should I call Heather? (my neighbor has all the punches) Instead I used the Martha Steward punch I do have, "The Pumpkins."   It's a really cute little pocket and it turned out to be a great Halloween goodies holder for co-works or classmates.  

I added the picket fence, spider and Trick or Treat.
 The only  candy I had was an mini Almond Joy but it fit
just right. I think a candy sucker would fit also. 

Inside the pocket. (sorry about the bad picture)
Hope you give these pockets a try.  Check out tomorrows posting for another tag pocket I made for a card. Enjoy your day.

It's A Girl!

Happy Tuesday.  Last week we were surprised with the news that our first grandchild is a Girl! We will be having a precious little princess.  We are so excited and can't wait until we can hold her in our arms and spoil her. I made today's card in honor of our little granddaughter. 
I saw a card on Pinterest with the dresser and thought
I could do that.  I think it's really cute. 

The bear is a embellishment from Jolee's boutique.

Thank you for stopping by and have a super great day!!

Thank you

Happy Monday! I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.  Did you find time to do any crafting or did you just enjoy pinning things to your Pinterest boards?  I did a little of both. Today's card is using the same layout as Friday's card.  The paper is from  DCWV. 
The "thank you" is a CTMH stamp and the edges 
are distressed with Tim Holz inks.  

Inside the card.
Happy Stamping and enjoy your week!

Thinking of You

Happy Thursday everyone.  Hope your all having a wonderful day!!  This has been a great week.  I have been able to make it into my crafting room for three days this week.  Yuppie! 
The paper for this card came out of a DCWV
packet called "The Chateau Lavender Stack".
It has such beautiful paper with glitter and embossing. 

Can you see the glitter?  

I just started making a Mini Album
with this paper.  I will show pictures soon.

Happy Crafting!!

Purse Card

Happy Wednesday!!  Today's card is a money holder.  Using a Sixxiz envelope die cut I made the purse as a money gift holder.  
The lipstick is also a die cut from Sizzix.
 The flower is made of wood so I used a marker
to color it to match the purse.

Inside the purse I used a magnet to keep the flap closed.
I added money inside as a gift. 

Inside the card.
This card is for a belated birthday.

Thank you for stopping by.  Have a super great day!

Pocket Card

Woo Hoo!! I made it into my craft room yesterday and made some cards.  I have to say it took me some time once I was in there to really get my crafting mojo going.  Here are the two cards I made. 
The cards have a pocket with two tags.  

The tags are made using a Sizzix die cut. 

The watering can is a Memory Box die cut.  I used
Tim Holtz paper for the watering can for a rustic look. 

These are the tags distressed with ink and a button
and ribbon added to the top. 

Inside the card. 

The second card I added a flower pot and flowers.

It was so nice to be back in my craft room.  I hope to spend some more time there this week.  Enjoy your day.
