I made this card for Jeff's brother. This past week he took his family on vacation to Florida to visit his "girlfriends" family and while on vacation they got married. The card is made out of Black and run cardstock. The image is from SU to have and to Hold. The background was embossed on the cuttlebug using the textile embossing folder. The scallop and circle are also punches from SU. I did the saying Mr & Mrs. on the computer. The brides dress is blinged out with SU dazzling diamonds.

Hope everyone had a wonderful thanksgiving and that you got stuffed on lots of Turkey (oopps I mean ham).....
This is the final Thanksgiving card of the year. I made this card for my friend Carrie and her family. The pattern paper and mat under the image is Basic Grey Mellow collection.
Please keep Carrie's family in your prayers and thoughts. The family is going through a very difficult time right now. I wish them the best and hope this all passes soon. My heart goes out to them. Carrie and her brother Jay are the sweetest people.
I will have another card and altered project to share over the weekend.

It's Sunday Scrappin time!! Happy Sunday to everyone! It's been a hectic week, I've been sick with an horrible eye infection. I woke up Friday morning with my eye and part of my face swollen, the prescription the dr. gave me is working wonders. Be sure to see what fabulous creations the girls over at Sunday Scrappin created this week.

Thinking of You/hello card
Scrapbook page and Card
I have started to work on my Christmas cards. I still have many more to make. These two santa cards are for our niece and nephew (thought they were cute kid cards). The image I received from SU WishRak it's High Hopes Santa & Rudy. The pattern paper is by the Paper Studio Tis The Season Stripe and red and green cardstock.
I think this is going to be the style of this years christmas cards. I have one other design I want to make but I need gold cardstock. The circles were made using the george cricut cartridge (the backing is plain cardstock same color as the front to hide the backing of the brads). The top part of the ornament is a SU Round Tab punch. I may put ribbon through the tab but I'm not sure. May do a few with ribbon and few without ribbon. The front was ran through the cuttlebug then went over them with SU Dazzling diamonds glitter.
MY TA DO's
Make 3 more Thanksgiving Cards (thought they were done but their not)

This weeks Sunday Challenge is Create something to do with Thanksgiving. I thought I'd go easy and motivate everyone to get your cards, placecards, or other Thanksgiving crafts done This is the perfect challenge being I still have a few cards to make.

I love this photo of our niece Summer age 3. She is adorable. I made this layout awhile ago I was going to make a coworker a scrapbook for her first grandchild then decided against it and instead used the page for myself. I want to find small brown rubons and put her name on the top and year on the bottom (above the photo and under the photo). I usually can only find large rubons and never in the colors I need.
This page was also completed for this week's ABC Challenge P is for Pink
I bought this dog stamp on ebay. It looks just like my dog buddy. I heat embossed the dog image using black embossing powder. As I'm sure you know this will not be the last time you see this image. I will get plenty of use of those this one for sure. The image arrived yesterday and first thing this morning I was making a card with it.

Get my craft room organized it looks like a bomb went off
start thinking/working on homemade christmas gifts
I can't believe I didn't do last week's challenge of using ribbon. I forgot about it. The funny thing was I was going to put ribbon on the Hang in there card but decided against it. This weeks challenge is to use a sketch from online or magazine. I should be able to do this, but then again I said that last week too. But I take part in several blog sketch challenges so I should get this one done.
Have a crafty week!

This card was made for this weeks Iheart2Stamp sketch challenge. I actually have another card idea that I plan to make either today or later in the week using this sketch. The stamp set is SU Sleigh Bells Ring (I believe this set is retired). I used gold embossing powder for the saying. I love to do all types of embossing whether it be heart or dry embossing or embossing with the cuttlebug.
