Day 464

This is a 6x6 wall tile that my husband drilled holes in so it could be hung. If you want to make tiles to hang on the wall make sure you are buying wal tiles. Floor tiles are not made to be drilled through.

Day 460

This card was made using a Cuttlebug folder that was exclusive to a company in the UK. They were sold out but I was able to get it on EBay. The Merry Christmas is stamped and a silver Zing embossing powder applied.
I have been busy although my posts don't reflect it. Hopefully after the Holidays life will slow down a bit. I think I say that every year bt it never seems to happen. :O)

Dau 459

My daughter came and spent the day with me on Sunday, a rare event. She does some great scrapbook pages for her kids Gavin and Hailey.She gets the ideas and then tells me what to cut. :O) This page has some flowers from where else but MyScrapChick and the journal part was done with a pen and the KNK.

Day 458

Turkeys galore! I wanted to make something for our local hospice group for Thanksgiving, and this is what I came up with. My son Josh was only in hospice care for 1 day before he passed away, but we were thankful for their help. Monday, it will be 2 years since Josh passed away. Each turkey has 24 pieces and I made over 70 of them...all I can say is it was a heck of alot of little pieces. :O) (Just came to mind that there were 24 pieces and Josh was 24...hmmm)
Some of them will be for my family seeing I am in charge of the Thanksgiving dinner each year.
It is a My Scrap Chick pattern , coredination paper, and cut with the Klic n kut.

Day 457

This is the same card as Day 453 but made into a 4x6 card and the hat trim and heart are embossed. I always am amazed at what a difference the embossing makes. It is another card for the swim team. I made some for my daughter to use as an invitation to her annual "winter get together".

This is another card made for the swim team. It is from the same My Scrap Chick file as the green card. It is also embossed with the Cuttlebug. The paper is coredinations and it is all cut with my Klic-n-kut!

Day 455

This is the same teacup card as the last post but embossed with the Cuttlebug embosser. This is going to be a card that goes to the "swim team", a group of ladies in their 60's -80's that swim at the pool at the same time that the kids and I go swimming. About half of them are no longer able to make it to the pool, but once on the swim team, you are always on the swim team. :O) I make 1/2 dozen cards for each of them a few times a year and they love to get them.

Day 453

This card started out as a My Scrap Chick treat box file. I decided to make it into a card. I think he is pretty cute. :O)
He can be a Christmas card or just a general winter card. The paper is all coredinations and the eyes are vinyl. The heart on the hat is a fiskars stick on gem .

Day 452

This photo doesn't do this justice. I had a piece of aqua blue paper and stamped it with my glue pad and used seafoam white embossing powder. I am not sure what I am going to do with it but it made a beautiful piece of embossed paper.

Day 451

This card was made using a My Scrap Chick cutting file. The papers are coredinations, the "so thankful for you" is cut for vinyl. Although it is a great Thanksgiving card it would be a nice card anytime of the year.

Day 450

I'm back...maybe just for today but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I hope to have my new desktop operating tonight and maybe have some free time soon to make some cards.
These are some party favor boxes I made for a baby shower we had this weekend. My daughter made truffles that went into each box. I used a free box file that I converted to KNK and embossed it with the cuttlebug baby folder.
