Go together like.....

 

DoodleBugs Odds and Ends
marina mist - Stampin Up

Hi Friends,

I saw this card on Snappy Scraps and I had to make one too! These are from the odds and ends pack by Doodlebugs. I used a stencil in the background and punched out some hearts and added Glossy Accents to them. I changed the stencil, words, and hearts but it is essentially the same card. I just love it. So fun. 

If I don't post before Thursday again, 

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hi Friends,

I'm playing with this weeks My Favorite Things sketch.  These little kids are so adorable. I have some pictures of a day in the snow that these would be perfect for a scrap page for. Their little happy expressions are the best! 

I hope you are having a great weekend. 

Be well and stay safe!

Hi Friends,

I hope your Sunday is going well. We did our weekly Sam's Club run and absolutely no toilet paper in site. Not the real stuff, not the cheap stuff, nada. And no paper towels this week either. So it has begun again, lol. Not to worry, I have a couple packs stashed away anticipating this. Last March, we had let our toilet paper run down to needing to buy another pack and then bam, it was gone. I was not about to let that happen again, lol. I'm not sure why toilet paper is the item to hoard, but it could be worse, huh. 

I saw this adorable Grinchmas blend on the Coffee Lover's Blog hop and I knew I had to make one too. So I decided this Build Your Stash Holiday Cards sketch was the perfect opportunity to pull out both these stamp sets and use them together. I needed something for the bottom any shape and I kept looking and looking for something and then the lightbulb came on, my old Martha Stewart Punch! Yeah. 

I hope everyone is ready for their Thanksgiving coming up this week. We have just our household this year. As much as I would love for everyone to get together, it's too dangerous. So we will celebrate and be thankful that we are all well and next year we will plan to have a large gathering. I am so thankful for everyone and all that we have. 

Be well and stay safe!

Hi Friends,

I'm totally not going to get anything done today, but I did make two cards this afternoon! lol. I pulled out my Loads of Joy stamps and dies and flipped this weeks sketch to make this Christmas card. I think I am getting in the mood for the Holly-Days! 

I hope everyone's having a happy crafty day and staying safe! 

Be well and stay safe,

Season's Greetings

 

Echo Park Jolly Christmas


Hi Friends,

I still have time to get this sketch design into Crystal's Facebook Sketch Challenge #3. I started to do this and then ended up with a coffee card, but today I made it a Christmas Card. I don't tend to use little images, but OMGosh I do love these cute little images. I think I recieved these stamps in the bimonthly club I am a member of through Echo Park. Sometimes they throw in some stamps and sometimes they throw in a 6X6 or Epherma, but they always have the 12X12 paper and I thought this would help motivate me to do some scrap pages throughout the year, lol. I haven't so far, but you never know when I'll get in the mood and just push out tons of pages, lol. 

I hope everyone is having a great weekend. I had so much fun during the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop that it's kind of a let down today not to have at least a hundred entrees to comment on. Thankfully Amy has those hops twice a year. And Thankfully there are other things to do, such as this fabulous sketch challenge. So thank you Crystal. 

Be well and stay safe,

Holly

Hi Friends,

Just a few more hours left to get our creations posted to the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! 
I've had so much fun making cards for this hop and also hopping around to see everyone's fabulous creations. I've picked up a couple things along the way as well, lol, which is also a totally separate hobby, lol. 

This is my Stampin Up Demo's design, not mine, but I did make it, lol. And I love it. So I had to buy the stuff to make more of course. 

Be well and stay Safe!

A Case of a Case

 

MFT Coffee Dies and words




Hi Friends, 

OMGosh it's so hard to believe that we are on our last day of the Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop! 
I don't know that there was as much participation this time, but that didn't stop us from reaching over 1,000 cards/projects uploaded. I think this Pandemic and Election season has everyone otherwise occupied. I am so thankful for the break from the news on both subjects. It's good to stay informed but my gosh there is a limit to how much one can read and process. As a nurse, I am seeing the Pandemic wreak havic first hand. It's horrible. I pray we are closer and closer to a vaccine, for all of us. 

Anywhoo, When I saw Beth's card over at the Paper Gnomes, I was in love. I knew I had to make one of my own. My marital advice is to take one sip at a time. This was quick and easy to make. I think I might make a few of them. 

I hope you are having fun hopping around. 

Be well and stay safe!
