Action Wobbles Retro Sketches and Sweet Peps

Happy after Thanksgiving to you all!
It's been crazy, busy at my homestead.
My mama's movin' on out
to her deluxe apartment in the sky-ai-ai. :)
We've been cleaning the new
place and de-trashing the yard and weeding and killing the rodents.
Sounds fun-no??
But LOOK at this fun card! It makes it all better.

Good day to all of you wonderful crafters out there.

I wanted to share this fun little wobbled card with you. You click the camera and the camera wobbles with action. I used one of the the sketches from Retro Sketches, #37
and the super Sweet Peps stamp set from Sweet Stamp Shop.
Head on over to the
to see the other amazing creations with action wobbles.
Have a super duper day.

Christmas Thanksgiving Wood Blocks

The sizes on the blocks can be whatever you want them to be. However, if you want 3-2x4's to fit on the bottom block it measures 10 3/8" long. 
7 1/2", 4 1/4", 5 1/4", 6 1/4", 6 1/2", 4 1/2"

We got together today to make these wonderful blocks for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
I had some leftover 2x4's out in the shed from the bunk bed project so I just used the chop saw and cut out the different sizes. I chose not to paint my blocks but instead leave them au natural ;). They were weathered from being outside and I like that. 
I just used bits and pieces of things I had in my craft area to decorate the blocks. 
The best thing about this project is that it's double sided. Thanksgiving on one side Jingle all the way on the other. You get two holiday decorations in one pretty little package.

This was fun, quick and easy to make. (Well except for creating and sizing the letters on my Silhouette) :)
Have a super day!

Snow Flurries Card

Good morning to you all! I been debating on buying these really cute "gemstones" for a few months. They were half off this week at HL so I just snatched them up. I layered two Martha Stewart snowflake punches for each snowflake..

I used some homemade turquoise ink dripped on the card and then stamped some speckles from the Snowflake Spot stamp set in Taken w/ Teal ink.

One of my dearest friends celebrated her birthday last week.
She has a great blog. She's so crafty and does such amazing things with sewing and
canning and food!! I love her to pieces.

to make this card.
I love the bright purples and yellows together!!
Hope you have a crafty day!

Winter ATC Swap: Snowflakes Galore

I love making ATC's. This is a group I made for a swap I'm participating in this winter.
Twenty-seven in all and so fun to look at.
I  used October Afternoon Sprinklers in Ice Box just dripped on the background.
The "brown" snowflakes were stamped with Versamark and then embossed with Stampin' Up's Iridescent Ice embossing powder. I chose the sentiment from one of my favorite hymns.
I love how the kraft background highlights the white flakes.
Hope you're all having a wonderful day.
Take care.

Sweet Stamp Shop November Realease: Afternoon Delights

Welcome Back and how are you today?!?!
You should have arrived here from the super talented
but if you didn't go ahead and start at the very beginning
I've been having such a great time and I'm glad I get to share with you again today.
I know I say that I adore pretty much every Sweet Stamp Shop set but
this one really takes the cake.
I am an avid herbal tea drinker
(have an suggestions on flavors for me?)
so the
stamp set is one of my all time faves!!!

 The tea pot and the sentiments are so perfect together.

I also made this vintage style card with the mason jar image included in the set and
 the "Filled with Love" sentiment.
Distress ink was perfect for this aging look.

So now it's time to hop on over to 
to see what super duper talented
has whipped up for your viewing pleasure today.
Have a great day.

Sweet Stamp Shop November Release: Get Fit

Hello there and welcome to
Sweet Stamp Shop's 
November Stamp Release
Blog Hop
You should have arrived here from
Emily's Blog
if not, go ahead and start at the very beginning :).

Got Broccoli?
I did in this super fun "Get Fit" stamp set from the Sweet Stamp Shop.
I wanted to use it in an unconventional way and came up
with this idea for mum like flowers out of the broccoli crowns.
I like the versatility of  being able to use stamps for something other than
what they were originally intended for.

Besides, pink broccoli is just FUN!

On to my next card which is really fast and fun to make.
Stamping the sneakers at different angles creates movement on this card that
draws the eye across.

They look lovely in rainbow don't they?!?
Now it's time for you to go on and hop along to
and see what amazing projects she has in store for you.

Washi Washi Everywhere and I just love it!

I have another slight addiction passion
for all things washi.
If you don't know what washi is or understand why it's so amazing
you can go HERE to find out.
My daughter and I actually put this card together yesterday in a matter of minutes.
I love that you have no adhesive to apply because it's already sticky and 
the patterns and colors are just so pretty now.
You can use it in so many ways too.
Hope you all have a super sweet day.
