Link Up Party at the Pink Cricut!

I made a calendar book for a Christmas gift. I learned this at an expo and thought this would make a really good gift.
Go to Pink Cricuts website and see what the other crafty ladies are showcasing!

I used the cuttlebug Diamond in the Rough under the bow and Tim Holtz ink to show the diamonds and added some bling. I used my BIA to bound the book. TFL~

Another year has come and gone, boy how time flies in our busy life today.

My new years resolution:

Be me, not what people want me to be
Do more crafting and blogging
Get out and ride my motorycyle more
Take lots of pictures
Rearange my craft room to be more functuional and easier access
More crafting, oh I already said that didn't I? LOL
Enjoy life to its fullest
Slow down, walk in the rain, smell the roses, listen to the wind blow. Enjoy all that God has given and blessed me with and those around me.


Christmas Cards

Here is a couple of Christmas cards I made. The first one is all glitter.
I learned this while at an expo form PK Glitz.
Recipe for card:
brass stencil
glitter colors of your choice
sticky paper
Apply gliiter one color at a time to designated areas. work from the outside to the inside.
Remove stencil and all areas exposed add glitter then adhere to card.


Here is the second card, I made this for my mother and she loved it~
Carstock is from DCWV Christmas stack, title from Holiday Time (walmart) flowers from Stampin up and I added stickles to give them some pop and a brad.
