It's Wednesday......

Can it really be Wednesday already? And almost one week away from Thanksgiving? It hardly seems possible!! I'm really looking forward to getting together with friends and family to celebrate our bountiful blessings.

Another event I'm looking forward to is Black Friday. My girls and I get up early and hit the town. It's become a tradition that we enjoy. I'm not the kind of person that stands in line and waits for the stores to open. We just like going for fun. Do any of you venture out on Black Friday? Do you have any stores that you just HAVE to shop at. I ALWAYS have to run in Bath and Body Works! I love their holiday specials!! If you do, I would like to know if you care to leave a comment. :)

Now on to the reason of my post......I entered a contest at Michael's. And I would be ever so GRATEFUL if you could take a minute and vote for me. The contest is a judged event but any votes toward my project will help. Below is the link to my project

I feel a little lost now that I'm not on a DT that has scheduled posts every week. Although, I have been enjoying the "extra" crafty time. Not a lot of chit chat tonight (anyone that knows me, knows I love to chit chat, I may even drive you crazy with it). What happened to that quiet girl I used to be?? Oh well, I don't miss her. My husband probably does sometimes. lol

Here's a few cards I've made recently using some of my favorite products from GCD Studios.

Have a super evening!!

Moxie Fab World/Plum Crazy Challenge

I'm not a big fan of purple.....and I'm not exactly sure why. So, this challenge is a perfect way for me to get "over it" .The paper I used is some I've had for years...and when I say years.....I mean YEARS!

The snowflakes were made using a Martha Stewart punch. The stamp is by Hero Arts. It's one from their new Christmas sets. I added dinky rhinestone to the center of the snowflakes to add a little pizazz to these very CAS cards. These could be mass produced in minutes. I'm actually thinking of using them for our families cards this year.

For some unknown reason. My last post would not allow comments. So I deleted it and redid the post. I'm sorry if it caused anyone trouble~

I'm a Covergirl.....

Happy Friday to all my blog friends! I hope your week was full of happy moments! We had a super week. Which I am always thankful for! I try not to take my blessed life for granted. That is one reason for this post.....I found out through the grapevine (Debbie Olsen) that one of my projects is on the cover of the current Simply Handmade idea book. Of course, I was very excited and went searching for it. I finally found it the other day and decided to share it with you all. This is my first time being a "covergirl" so it's a pretty amazing feeling! :D I want to thank the lovely peeps at Simply Handmade for using my project as the cover for their beautiful idea book! I have not taken it for granted.

Here's a little baby announcement I created out of felt and some yummy Melissa Frances paper. I find it so easy to create the most dainty things out of her paper! IMO Melissa Frances paper is a no fail project! :D I also used a chipboard letter from gcd studios. Which I smothered in glitter. The paper doily came from the Dollar Tree. The brand the stamps are from is eluding my memory right now. If I remember I'll post it later. The rest of the of the goodies are just stuff I had lying around.

The back of the tag is for the photo. I should've added it to this post! So much to little time! :)

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a super weekend!

Some cards and a Toot.......and a Give-away....

It's been several days since I posted last. Time seems to fly by faster with each passing day! I've been extra busy since my husband has been working closer to home. He finds more tasks for me to do. :) But no complaints.....I'm happy I'm able to help!
Our Fall weather has been EXTREMELY beautiful! Sadly, the trees are almost bare and the lustrous colors are swiftly fading! I am eagerly anticipating the holidays and all the fun and joy they bring! Family gatherings are so blessed! We're going to have Thanksgiving at our home this year! I need to start thinking about table decor! I think our menu is pretty well set. What do you typically have each year? I would love to know if you care to leave a comment. Goodness, all this talk about Thanksgiving is making me hungry!! I think I'll change the subject.........

Some of you may already know that I tried out for the Zva (Zee-vuh) Creative dt. And can ya believe I made it. I was happy and surprised to get an email and a call from the famed Kim Hughes. To top it all off. It was my birthday weekend. Talk about icing on the cake! I'm still on cloud 9. I'm looking forward to working with so many AWESOMELY talented ladies!

Here's a couple cards that showcase some of the products in GCD Studios newest line created by Melody Ross. I LOVE this new Artsy Urban collection! It's full of character and beauty! I have so much fun using this collection. GCD Studios is giving away some of this Collection TODAY....CHECK IT OUT HERE

TSM for stopping by! I hope your day is wonderful!
