Whimsy Jar Swap

Good afternoon! 

I just wanted to share with you something that I received in the mail yesterday.  I have been a part of a message board for a long time now (since 2004 I think) and have joined in on swaps on that board from time to time.  A couple of months ago I signed up for a Whimsy Jar swap and the colour that I wanted my jar to be in was pink.  Guess that's a surprise for those that know me well....NOT!!!  My jar arrived yesterday and was so packed full of goodies that after I had taken them all out I could not get them back in.  Here is a picture of the jar as it arrived full and the contents after I had taken them out:

I have pictures of the jar that I made as well but as far as I know the recipient has not received it yet and I do not want to spoil it for her (I don't think she reads here but ya never know).  I am looking forward to placing the jar on a shelf in my new craft room.  This was a fun swap and I would sign up for it again in a heartbeat.

Have a great day, my friends!

I'm BACK......with a new project......FINALLY!!!!!!

Good evening, everyone!  Did you miss me???  I have been gone for almost 2 weeks now but am ready to start creating again.  The move came and went and I am now settling in and SOOOOOO ready to be back at my blogging and creating.  So, I have a baby card to share with you.  It is the only project that I have done for two weeks and did it because I needed it for a baby shower that I went to yesterday for my niece.This card was made with things from my stash, the Doodlecharms Cricut cartridge and Peachy Keen Critter Faces (Medium) stamp.


Thanks for stopping by and checking the project out.

Take care, my crafting friends.  It's good to be back!!!

See Y'All on the Flip Side!!!

Hello my crafting friends.  There has definitely not been any crafting going on in this house the last 2 weeks or so but everything is packed up and in boxes ready to go bright and early in the morning.  If things go as expected, I should have some of my stuff unpacked this weekend and will have a project for you as soon as possible.  Stay tuned!!!!

I will also have no internet access for a bit so everyone be good, don't miss me too much and I will see y'all on the flip side.

Teenage Boy Birthday Card

Hello my blogging friends!  It has been a while since I last posted anything but I had to make a card for my nephew's birthday party this weekend and it has been the only thing I have done that's creative in a LONG while.  Truthfully, I am missing it greatly but the apartment needs to get packed up and the pink castle painted over before we go and we have 13 more days to do it!  I MAY get a bit of time to craft this long weekend but I have to work part of it, am spending some time with family and totally packing the rest of my scrapping supplies.  This may be my last post with a project until the flip side (and by the time I get all unpacked and the internet hooked up) that might not be until the end of September.  Don't miss me too much as I will be back!  :)  BUT wish me luck as I find change stressful and am feeling the effects of this already. 

Okay, on to the card.....

This is one of those cards that looks simple but uses a lot of little things to create it. I am entering it into Made By Momo's challenge to use black & white & only one other colour. It has been a while since I have done any challenges as well.

Supplies Used:

Cardstock - Recollections Value Pack
-Coordinations Black Magic (sent through the Cuttlebug Traffic Jam folder and sanded to show the blue although it looks white in the photo)

Cricut Cartridges - Doodlecharms for the cupcake, cut at 3 1/2"
- Don Juan for the numbers, cut at 1"

Punches - Martha Stewart Zig Zag border punch
Stamping Up word window punch

Stamps are from Michaels $1.50 bin

All other misc. supplies are from my stash

Thanks for visiting today.  Have a wonderful Thursday and a great long weekend if I am not around.  This is only one of a few long weekends that both Canada and the US share, always marking the end of summer and back to school after for those of us here in Ontario.
