Cosmo Cricket (mitten weather)

This card fits perfectly into the Caardvarks challenge going on right now. The challenge is using die cuts. I used a Cosmo Cricket die cut from their brand new mitten weather collection. This collection is full of fun colors and embellishments. I am glad I purchased it!

Hi, Lori here today. I thought I would share with you how to create a wreath using double-sided tape and glitter. I used antique gold glitter but you could use many different colors.

This went together pretty quick. The card could be recreated in about 15 minutes (if you precut the flowers).

I'm looking forward to Black Friday! Is anyone else?
My girls and I started going 3-4 years ago. They were finally old enough to go out they early in all the hustle and bustle. Truthfully, I don't usually shop for Christmas gifts that day. I just enjoy the fun of getting out and about with everyone else all decked out in their Christmas attire and spreading the Christmas spirit.

Don't forget to stamp the sentiment. :)
I forgot to add it to the tut.

To make an envelope coordinate with your card.
Simply trace the shape of the envelope onto your
choice of patterned paper. Cut it out and adhere it
to the enevelope with tape. It is an instant face lift.

You can emboss the bottom before you glitter or
after. It didn't seem to affect it doing it last.

Nikki Sivils card and project

As many of you know, I am expecting our 5th child. As a result I've gotten severely behind on posting my DT projects. This month I'm planning on posting at least two projects a week in hopes of "getting caught up".

I have a couple Nikki Sivils projects to share with you today. I enjoy creating with Nikki's fun and cute collections.

For this project I used Tree Love it's an adorable Fall
collection. I simply wrapped these mini pumpkin bread
loaves I baked using a small piece of the patterned paper.
I then tied a bow around it and added some embellishments
and a Tree Love tag.

For this card I used a piece of My Friend Birdie

patterned paper. I added some cuttlebugging, a cute

little lion stamp, a couple of Nikki's cute little muslin

covered buttons, and sticker letters from the Something For

Everyone collection.

Holiday Gifts

The holidays are here!!!! Well, almost....I have been looking forward to them since Fall began. I can't wait to start listening to Christmas music while the scents of the season float through the house. My oil burner runs 24/7 and I have some yummy Christmas smells to add to it.
What is your favorite scent of the season?

This month is the time we start thinking about gifts for family, teachers, co-workers, mail carriers, neighbors etc. So I put together this little candle in a jar. What a quick, easy and inexpensive gift to give. I will probably give these to the personnel at the school this year.
Candles are usually well loved and fun to receive. I know I enjoy getting them as gifts!!
