So things are once again Crazy in my life, We said goodbye to Idaho last week, and are back in Washington. I do not have reliable internet right now, only what I can get on my ipod. I will be in the Scrappin roots blog hop on Jan. 6th, so I will be creating my very first layout for that event.

I hope you all had a Wonderful Christmas, and got everything you asked for. I got the new Twinkle Toes cartridge, but have not yet got time to play with it.

Thanks for holding tight with my blog, next year I plan to do the 365 days of crafting. That will be an adventure :D We will see how that goes.

Ho ho HO

Here is my favorite card out of the Christmas ones, so far. I just made this one like 10 mins ago, it's still wet with stickles.

I used scrap paper, ribbon from Joanns, stamp from Joanns, Stickles, bling from Joanns, and the cart was Simply Charmed.

Deer Me

So this one is one of my favorites, the next card I post is my most favorite. Here is this one first though :
The deer is from My minds Eye chipboard, I love this chipboard, it's a sticker. The paper is double sided I got it on clearance at Joanns for 25 cents for the sheet, the snowflakes are kinda shimmery although you can't see it in this picture. The pearls are from Joanns too, and the inside is stamped Merry Christmas.

Merry Christmas.

Now I'm not sure who makes the printed Merry Christmas paper, I am pretty sure I got it at Joanns (just the single sheet), The ribbon is from Micheals, the glitter is done by Stickles The cart was Simply Charmed. The green paper is Card stock from Joann.s :D The inside says Happy Holidays,( it's stamped.)

10 Days Until Christmas.

I am trying to make 20 cards in 8 days. Wish me luck, with my super slacking self I will be lucky to make 10 lol.
Here is one I made yesterday:

So The snowflake paper and the snowflake are from DCWV, the Deer and Merry Christmas are from  My Minds Eye, and the pearls are from Joanns. Pretty flippin cute huh? I wonder who will get this card... really I don't know yet. More updates to come.

So to whip up this card of mine I used :  Printed paper from DCWV, Plain paper from Joanns, the Ribbon came from my awesome Grandma Helen, the buttons came from Micheals, the stamp from Joanns, The bling from Micheals, and of course stickles they came from Micheals, and the cartridge is Simply Charmed. I stamped merry Christmas and then stickled it, it really looks better in person sorry my craptastic phone won't capture it.

A little something I just whipped up lol

So this week we got about 15 inches of snow yikes huh? :I have been super busy but I am taking time out today to craft.  I saw on that she had got a 3 pk of little white buckets at the dollar store, and I found some while I was there, and have not used them. But while trying to figure out something super exciting to make for you all to view, I thought of this:

this is what is in it :

Cute huh? To make it I used candy cane stripped ribbon from the 1.00 ribbon at Joann's. The candy is mini Hershey bars, the chipboard is from a box of 100.pc chipboard from DCWV that I got at Joann's, The bling is from the 1.00 section in Micheals and the tissue paper is from Walmart, it was red from the 4th of July and it was on clearance for .25 cents nice score huh?? The little bucket as I said comes in a 3 pk from The Dollar Tree. Thanks Sarah again for the bucket Idea. Oh and I used 3D stickers from Helmar.

I hope to make a few more things for today, and to mail out the package for the blog hop winner, I  have not forgot about her, just due to the weather have not been able to get to the post office.
This is what it looks like here in Idaho
