I have a fun  card to share with you today - take a look:
Stamp and sentiment from Your Next Stamp "Gobble, Gobble"

This makes me smile as I definitely overeat each Thanksgiving.
In fact I usually wear stretchy pants so that I won't be as miserable.
My favorite turkey day food items are stuffing and sweet potatoes
ohhhh and of course pumpkin pie.  
What are  yours?

52CCT - October Stash Challenge - Enamel Dots

Hello to my wonderful crafty friends. 
Hope life is treating you well :o)

Just got back from the movie theater so am
kind of scurrying to get my post done in time for this
next weekly challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown.
We saw "The Judge" with Robert Downey Jr. and 
Robert Duval.  It was so good!! 
And "oh my be still my heart"...that Robert Downey Jr. 
is still such a babe. Those brown eyes of his just make me melt.

Ooops..I digress! You probably would like to know what the challenge is!
This week at 52CCT we have an Stash Challenge for you
Oooohhh this one is right up my alley. I LOVE to use 
enamel dots and candy dots on my cards. 
I'll just bet there are plenty of you crafters out there
that also have a stash of enamel dots to use.

Here's my card to inspire you this week:

I rescued this card base from last week.  I had started
with washi tape for my one layer card and then I just wasn't
feeling it.  This week I added a house  from my new stamp set
called Homemade Holidays and the coordinating die (Stampin' Up!).

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
Addicted to Stamps and More! - Challenge #118 Holiday
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra for October
CASology - Home (I hope this qualifies as CAS)

The rest of the lovely team at 52CCT have also
made some wonderful creations to inspire you to play along
with us this week.  Please go visit them and say "hi".
I hope to see your card in the gallery soon!
Til next time...hugs and merry crafting. D

MTTC#263 - Tag It!

Hello friends and followers - happy weekend!!
The month of October is just practically evaporating for me.
This 3rd week of the month at My Time to Craft (MTTC) 
we have a little different and fun challenge for you.
MTTC #263 is Tag It!

We want to see your tags - not attached to a card or project.
Just a good ol' tag!  Here's mine for this week:

I mustache you...do you like it?  LOL
I used my new mustache die - just love it -
and popped it up using dimensional dots.
I colored the image with my Stampin' Blendabilities markers
and added some rhinestones for added bling.

I don't very often make tags but with images as cute as this
I think I might need to make a few more!

I'm entering my tag in the following challenges:
The Crafter's Cafe - Challenge #86 Use an Image with a Hat
Crafting from the Heart - Challenge #40 - Anything Goes

I also made a second tag from the from set (Stampin Up!) 
but attached this one to a card. 

Fun huh?

52CCT - October Recipe Challenge - One Layer Card

Hello friends!
Time for another challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown (52CCT)
Our challenge this week has three little words that strike fear in my crafter's heart
ONE LAYER CARD.
Oh boy...I must admit that this is my least favorite type of card to make. 
But there's a reason we call it a challenge - to push our creative styles
and sometimes the challenges are harder for me than they seem to be for you.

So...enough whining...I rose to the challenge and this is what I made.

I stamped with three different blues starting with the
lightest and working my way to darkest.  
Kind of reminds me of a blizzard - LOL.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Sister Act #79 - Anything Goes

I hope that you will decide to join us this week at 52CCT 
and share your One Layer Christmas Cards with us.
My teamies at 52CCT have made some amazing 
one layer cards to share with you.  Please go check them out!

Til next time...hugs and merry crafting! D

Cheers to You! Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #251 (Sketch)

Hello friends - look at that we made it to Friday!
What a week I've had, I'm still trying to catch myself
and keep thinking "what the heck happened to my time?"
In any event...it's almost the weekend - whew!

I started this card last Sunday and finally got it done last night.  
There is a sketch at Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge that I just had to play along with.
Here's the sketch for Kraftin' Kimmie Challenge #251

And here's what I made using it:

Check out those pompoms! I saw a tutorial on how to 
make them using baker's twine and this sweet image 
seemed just perfect for such a technique. 

Sorry for a short post but I do need to get through
one more day at work so I best be on my way.

I'm also entering these great challenges:
 Addicted to Stamps and More - Challenge #117 Make Your Mark
