MOJO Monday Card Challenge #320

Hi Everyone :)

Hope this post finds you all well and crafting today :)

Today I created a card for the Mojo Monday Challenge #320 with my friend Joyce!  Here is the sketch:

and here is my card:

I used the Bo Bunny 6x6 paper pack called Silver and Gold.  The sentiment is a Recollections set and I embossed it with Stampendous Stuff Red Tinsel.  The ribbon is from my stash.  The embossing folder is from Cuttlebug but I don't know the name sorry :(

Well today is a short and sweet post but I hope you enjoyed it.  Please leave me some love in the form of a comment.

Hand Knit Scarf

Hello Everyone :)

Today's post is a little different than my usual ones as I have not created anything with paper (WHAT!).  I have a craft fair that I will be in this Saturday and I have been knitting up a storm getting ready for it!  I am not as prepared for it as I should be as this was a last minute decision.  If I do well maybe I will get my act together (yea right) and be more prepared next time.  So here is a picture of the scarf.

For you that live in the USA can you guess which football team is my favorite?  I also have them in the following colors Blue & Orange, Black & Gold, Red & Gold, Green & Gold, Red & Blue, Blue & Silver, Purple & Gold and Navy & Gold.  If you are interested I sell them for $20.00 (not including shipping).  Leave me a comment if your are interested in one or if you just want to say Hi  :)  I LOVE COMMENTS it lets me know that you girls like what you see on my blog :)
Well anyway that is what I've been doing!  I have another canvas planned so be looking for it soon (I hope LOL).  I hope to make a picture tutorial for you :) as I put it together. 
Ta Ta for now my lovelies!!!

Hi Everyone :)

A while back I posted that I wanted to give away some blog candy once I met 100 subscribers.  Well that seems a long way off and since I've hit 31 I think I will give the prize away.  Here is the candy:

I will include the people who subscribed to my blog and left a comment back in May as well as anyone else who subscribes and leaves a comment on this post. 

I will be picking a winner on November 18.  Unfortunately to recieve the Tsunami Rose prize I had to get to 100 subscribers so that won't be included in the giveaway.  Sorry!  I just felt like it has been a long time since I posted the candy and didn't think it was fair to make everyone wait any longer.

SO please subscribe to my blog and leave a comment and I will add you to the basket of names!  I will have my son Joshua (who has Down Syndrome) pick the winner that way you know it was fair.  It would be nice to maybe hit 40 but I will be happy with whatever number I get by November 18.  To you who have recently subscribed please leave a comment as well.



Mojo Monday Challenge 318

Hi All :)

Today I finished a Christmas card with the Mojo Monday Challenge #318 sketch!  Here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

This is a standard A2 card.  The 6x6 paper pad I used is Bo Bunny Silver & Gold Collection.  The Noel Recollections sentiment is embossed with Stampendous, PearLustre Embossing Powder in the color of Emerald Opaque.  I used my computer to type the inside sentiment.  I found the sentiment in Betsy Flot's Inspiration Station book (which I love).  The book is filled with Page Titles, Toppers & Quotes for Scrapbooking and Card making.  The ribbon, grommet and rhinstones are from my stash.  The pointsetta came from K&Company's Elizabeth Brownd Layered Accents set that I bought two years ago!  I really need to use some of my hoarded items more often :)

Well that is it for me today!  If you like what you see please subscribe to my blog and enter your email so you don't miss any posts :)
