Alabama House

Hello and Happy New Year's Day.  As you know if you come by my blog often.  My family is a huge Alabama fan.  The championship games start today.  Alabama is
playing Michigan State which is strange since we leave in Michigan.  A lot of our friends will be cheering for Michigan State.  Oh well.

I have had this house sitting on my craft table for a while.  I finally sat down and finished it.  This one is for my son.  I have another one on my desk, but it needs to be painted before I decorate it.  I may work on it tonight during the game.  It will go into the spare bedroom which if my Alabama room.

It was so much fun to put together.  Have a great day.

Hello.  Just a quick post.  I need to enter this card real quick in a challenge.

I thought this snowman over on the Silhouette Online store was so cute, I just had to make him into a card.  My sister is going to be so upset that I made him without her.  She was going to play but then some thing came up and she had to leave.  I started without her.

I had the hat band and glasses out of red glittery paper.  He is just too cute.  I don't know if I will save him for next Christmas or use him as a Winter card.

I am using this card in the following challenges:
   Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes #92
   Crafty Creations - Anything Goes #305
   Crafty Gals - Anything Goes #52
   Cupcake Inspiration - Snowman #340
   Give a Crafter A Cookie - Snowman
   Glitter N Sparkle - Glittery Sparkly Christmas

Have a great evening.

From The Heart

Good afternoon.  Time to get back into the swing of things.  I am working on a few challenges.  The first one I picked was From The Heart.  I just love their Progressive challenge.

This month, it was a Christmas image so I will have a card or two down for next year.  The image is called So Joyful and it a cute little bear with a stack of presents.  I printed the image larger so it will cover most of the card.  I added the sentiment 'Merriest Wishes' from Momenta.  Then I added three perler beads on the bottom of the  card.    And that was it. 

I am using it in the following challenges:
   From The Heart - Progressive Challenge
   613 Ave Create - Anything Goes #156
   Gem of a Challenge - Anything Christmas
   Brown Sugar - Christmas
   Through The Craft Room Door - Anything Goes
   Crazy Hazelnut's - Patterned Paper

That is it for now.  Chat with you later.

Christmas Gift Tags

Hello.  This evening I worked on more gift tags.  I should be all set for Christmas 2016.  But who knows I may make more later.  There are just so many cute tags out there.  All of these can be found in the Silhouette Online store.

Have a great night and I will chat with you sometime Monday.

Christmas is Over

Hello.  I can't believe I didn't post anything during the month of December.  Sorry about that.  Now that Christmas is over, I am hoping to get back in the swing of things.  My sister and I really want to get back to making things.  Hopefully tomorrow, we will both have a couple of hours.

I worked on updating my challenge list last night so I will be making some cards for those and I want to finish up some unfinished projects.  I think every Sunday, I am going to try to work on holiday projects.  The first few will be Christmas and then I will move on to Valentines.  Hopefully, this will help me get some things done.

As I said, I am working on Christmas,  this year, I had all of my gift tags made in advance and it was wonderful.  So I want to restock for next year.  Today, I decided to use some stickers left over from my planner and some tags I had forever.  I also pulled out some of my washi tape.  Nothing fancy, but these are done.

Chat with all of you later.  Have a great day.
