A Christams Goose / PP272

Today I worked on another Christmas card.  I have 2 more to create for my immediate family and I'm using the Paper Pumpkin kits to created the remainder.

I decided to play along with the Paper Players #272 sketch challenge to create this goose card.  I was a little hesitant to use black, red, and very vanilla, but I do like the way it looks. What do you think?

All the papers are by SU, the black pattern paper is retired and so is the ribbon. I created the tag on my Cricut Explore Air and mimicked the corners on the red background with a retired SU punch. I used the Wetlands stamp by SU, but hadn't used the goose on too many cards with this set. I thought it was about time!

That's about it for today.  I'm off to do errands and give my pup a bath today.  We are going to a Thanksgiving function in Scottsdale, AZ, so I will not be doing much cooking this year. Although, I love the whole Thanksgiving preparations.

Deck the Halls /FMS213/SCCC


Another quick post today. I'll be getting this posted just under the wire for the sketch challenge over at  Freshly Made Sketches . I'm also playing along with Christmas Card Challenges this week.

I really liked the layout and the great inspiration over on both blogs and just had to create a card. I wanted to use a holly image to go with the sentiment, but I didn't have one, but I do have my CRICUT Explore Air. I looked at several images and my final  decision was one by Teresa Collins-December 25th. which I resized it and layered.

 I'm off to clean up my Studio, AGAIN! I hope you have a wonderful Sunday and go do something CRAFTY, my friends!

Turkey Money Holders and Kids project

Just a quick post today. I just finished up my grand children's
cards and Thanksgiving activity pocket. They really should have been mailed yesterday, but I didn't have them all finished until late yesterday afternoon and had a dinner to go to last night.
Darn my procrastination!!!  

This a picture of the completed project and money holder card. I also made a little pocket to hold crayons to color the turkey on front and a card where they can write what they are thankful for. The pocket, the writing, the insert card and Turkey all were created on my Cricut Explore Air using my subscription images and fonts.

 Here is the card with the burlap belly band. The Turkey was attached with foam tape.

This is the card I made for my three new grand babies, Kate, Annabelle, and Wren who will celebrating their first Thanksgiving this year. If you would like any information on measurements and what image cartidge I used, feel free to contact me at:

Make it a wonderful Friday and go do something CRAFTY!
