Tilda~ die cut challenge

I've created another card for the die cut challenge over at Luckybug and Friends. This die cut is from the Sizzix BIGz scallop card die. I only used a small portion of it because its a HUGE die..and I just love scalloped edges! I had some left over cards and pp pieces from some previous cards using Fancy Pants Fall collection, so this card was a quickie. Hope you like. hugs,T

little mini album

I made up this little mini album today for both a challenge and a demo for a quick mini album kit. The challenge was to use die cuts from sizzix, cricut, quickutz,etc.. I have cut flourishes and scallop squares both from my cricut. Also the tabs and circles are from punches. I have little black and white butterfly tins that these little albums fit in...but i won't show those and ruin the surprise for those receiving the kits. :0) Hope you like! hugs,T

OH MY...Hanglars and some new MM goodies

Ok, so how long do you think I would have to vacation in Sweden before I can order some of these Hanglar cuties? Wahhh...and do you think this calls for some sort of 12 step program if you are willing to use all your savings to go to Sweden to order some, hahaha! Too funny! I just joined the Hanglar Blog group at Paper Craft Planet and it has me drooling.

On another note, i just returned from Michaels (big mistake) where I found one of the lace Martha Stewart punches I have been searching for..woohooo! AND..it was 30% off, which was an even better surprise. The bad news is while I was there I ran into lots of other goodies on sale that I couldn't live without. That's why I try to avoid that place!! Anyway...I am totally in love with the new MM Chloe's Closet and Sabrina lines! I picked up a few of the items for some cards and mini albums. And they have matching pins!! woohooo! I love hat pins! Good grief do I ever need that 12 step program! haha...so here is a pic of my new loot, lol! hugs,T

Triple Play challenge

I made this card for the Triple Play challenge over at Luckybugcreations The challenge was to use green cardstock, green ink, and green glitz. I used my new Luvvie stamp from Sugar Nellie stamps. Green cardstock bracket die cut stamped with Olive CTMH ink swirls and butterflies. The pattern paper with the "glitzy" circles by MME, was my inspiration for the pink, green, and brown..love that color combo!

Christmas layouts, Basic Grey Wassail

I received the BG Wassail collection in the mail today, so I finally can start my 2008 Christmas pics, lol! I won't mention that I haven't finished 2007, or 2006 Christmas layouts yet..haha! So here is a 2 page layout of my extended family. We spent the 3 days before Christmas in a cabin in Gatlinburg this season. It was marvelous having my siblings and my Mom and Dad in one house at one time and I know my parents were thrilled as well!

All pattern paper is Basic Grey, Cardstock: Bazzill, Felt reindeer: Prima, Stickers: Basic Grey

Digging for hidden treasure...

My son is an expert at finding little treasures. His "treasures" consist of little feathers, little acorns, rocks, sticks, pieces of shell, bugs..and all sorts of other things boys find fascinating. While cleaning his room I found this little "treasure box" with some of the items he deemed "keepable" I thought it was precious and snapped a photo of it.
