YUMMY Cupcakes!

These are 3 of the newest images that I received from Pink Papery. They are from the Whimsy Studios collection. Aren't they just so yummy looking? I decided I needed to make 2 cards for this weeks challenge instead of just one...since I missed the last few challenges. (which I hope to catch up on soon).

The first card I made is using the images called Angel & Devil food cake stamp sets. You can find them and purchase them here . We were challenged to dig through our pattered paper scraps and use at least 2 different papers.

I really wanted to use my prismas to color all of my cupcakes but the paper I guess that I printed the images on kept smudging the next time I'll have to go back to printing on glossy white...that seemed to work better the last time. I colored the images this time with a little prisma but didn't get to use the gamsol on it and I also used some shimmery chalks along with lots of glitter and stickles!

Can we just put a hold on ONE day???

Things here have been crazy...on top of Christmas, getting together with family and friends for the Holiday, getting gifts wrapped and trying to visit everyone...why must it feel like nothing else can get done or finished??? There is just not enough hours in the day...but than if there was I would be even more tired than I am right now haha! I think this is my first year where I have felt overwhelmed with it all. My scrap room is a total disaster from all the last minute homemade projects and I'm hoping to get it cleaned up soon and back on track so I can start making cards and creating again! I'm so behind with Pink Papery challenges and I feel so bad but, just think of all the stuff I'll be posting VERY soon on my blog...I have lots of pictures of projects from Christmas that I have done just no time to post. I may get some up later today but there are no promises here this time. I can just promise I'll get back on track VERY SOON!

I hope you all have a blessed Christmas and hope you will have A Happy New Year!!!

Here are some digi tags I made before Christmas hit and my computer crashed. I got the digital kits from misfitsscraps and bluedreamdesigns. You can find both of their blog links on my side bar.

Computer Crash...

Hello Blog friends...Last Wed. my computer crashed because of a bad spyware it got so I've been unable to update the last few days. I got it back from the computer repair guy last night. He was able to back up everything (THANK GOD!) so I'm up and running again and will be updating soon!

Christmas Wreath

WOW! today has been such a long day for me. I was very busy making Christmas cards (since I waited till the last min.) and knew I had to get them out by tomorrow. I'm hoping they reach everyone by Christmas. So I finished all of those got some boxes packed and ready to mail. I even got 2 little Christmas gifts (which will be posted soon) made for the weight watcher leaders in the meeting I attend every week.

I haven't had time to post these pictures and I have been wanting to share them SO badly! A couple weeks ago Trish was able to come and make the wreaths we'd been planning on making for Christmas. We got the WONDERFUL inspiration & idea from Janine's blog here When we seen this wreath we knew we had to make them and so we did. We collected all the supplies and got to work! Both Trish and I made 2 each. We wanted one for ourselves of course and to make one for our parents. We had a blast making them and BOY did we have glitter from head to toe and we loved it! We both were all sparkly and so was everything else in my kitchen haha!

A Christmas Tag, a Sale, Blog Candy & FREE STUFF!!!

Yesterday was a VERY COLD and wintry day. We had a challenge that was due today for Pink Papery that I did yesterday and it went with the weather that's for sure!

The challenge was to make a tag using the colors purple, silver, white & blue..I really enjoyed using these colors together they are so pretty and great for winter cards! I used the set called Catch A Falling Snowflake by Trafalgarssquare. They were the digital images from that set that I used but they are also available in stamps! You can find & purchase them here

FINALLY posted....Another one of Jeff's AMAZING CREATIONS!

Ok, so if you all keep up with my blog...then you remember a few months back when I posted about the AWESOME ribbon holder Mr. Jeff made for me. And if your just recently started reading my blog or came across it this is it...

After receiving it in the mail and falling in love with this ribbon holder over and over again...I thought ok what else do I need for my craft room? My ink holder was getting a little full so I thought OH MY to have an ink holder to match with my ribbon holder and have them up on the wall side by side WOW! So I got a hold of Jeff told him what I wanted and he made it!!! Everything I asked for it was perfect...I fell in love all over again! EEEEP! I was really blessed to have met this creative man when I went on a family vacation back in Sept. and to pick up my ink holder from THE man! I really wish I would have gotten a picture with him. is the ink holder he made to match my ribbon holder...

It has 100 slots for the ink pads, a shelf for my ink refills (which I don't have a lot of yet), and an extra little shelf for whatever else I want.

and the two are finally on the wall side by side. Aren't they amazing?

So if you would like Jeff to make you one of these awesome creations here is the link to his site. he also has other sizes of ink holders on his blog so go by and check his work out!

Thanks Jeff you ROCK!

Pink Papery Dec. 3rd Challenge - Homemade Project

Hello Hello!!! Yes, I know I've been MIA for a while now and I sure have missed blogger and visiting all my friends blogs. My satellite Internet decided I didn't need to be online haha! so it slowed me down and I wasn't able to load pages at all!!!! With satellite Internet you are allowed so much use age and if you go beyond that like I did your connection slows down to pretty much nothing. I'm crossing my fingers and hope to get dsl next week since my wildblue's contract ends next month. They are not sure there are enough lines in my area and might be all used up....whatever that means so I won't know till the 10th if I can get it or I'm trying to keep positive and just hope I can get it.

I logged in just in time to join in on this weeks Pink Papery challenge. We were to make something homemade so I decided to make a tiny treat box. The little box is so cute and easy to make! I got the directions from Splitcoast Stampers here and used the digital images that Pink Papery carries here these adorable images that I used are called All wrapped up Christmas set..isn't she so cute?!?
