Season's Greetings

Hello and welcome to my blog, a big thanks to my two new followers, gosh I can't believe I now have over 200 followers,  thank you for joining me.

Today's design is on the early side for the holidays but it has been raining here and I am trapped indoors.  To create the Santa you will need to cut the arms and legs off and re-glue them as shown.  I used the coat from the Santa's Laundry which works great, and the sack is actually one of the beards.  I stuffed the sack with candy canes, gum drops and tiny stocking.  Under the tree I added two mice and the tiny train set. I borrowed the witch's shoes because I could not find a good masculine shoe die. You know trying to glue tiny die cut pieces is really hard, miniatures are fun but also a pain.

Fall Has Arrived

Greetings Everyone, a big hello to my latest follower, thank you for joining.  Today's card has a nice Fall theme.  I just die cut two houses and added some left over trim for one of the roofs.  I added a fun bare branched tree behind one house, used the porch from the Poppy Stamps Halloween Roof & Porch die and then tucked some leaves and pumpkins in front.

Brewing Up Some Candy Treats

Oh you know how I love the Lady Dancing die so I thought it would be fun to have her dressed in a pumpkin outfit concocting a delicious brew of Halloween goodies.   The table is created using the Taylored Expressions The Witch Is In legs and a Martha Stewart Dripping Goo for the table skirt and a few bats. Then I added the Grim Cauldron, Tiny Bubbles & Swirled Lollipops.

Flying Witch & Midnight Ride

Flying Witch

Midnight Ride

Oh you know I really like the Memory Box Dancing Lady die (retired) there are just so many fun ways to create cards using her.  I used a Spellbinders Large Classic Circle for the moons and I found I had an old Martha Stewart bat wings, Jack O Lantern and bat punch.

We recently discovered some rodent had taken up resident in our attic, after putting rat/mouse traps and getting nothing I asked my better half to get up in the attic and take a look.  Well, over in the corner where the house eves are located was a nest with five baby Douglas Squirrels (picture below).  Now they are actually a native squirrel in Washington so I had him place the babies in a box and took them outside and placed them under a tree.  Sure enough almost immediately here comes the mom and she moved them all to a better location.  We found where the squirrel had gotten up on the roof and into the attic so now that is all sealed off.

Greetings everyone,

Today's card was very easy to create I was looking through some of my old forgotten Martha Stewart punches and found I had a vampire.  I die cut three Memory Box Birch trees and punched out the vampire, then added some bats and the words and I was done.

You  know Michael's Craft store every year used to carry a nice line of the new Martha Stewart punches for every season but either she does not produce them anymore or something.

Dangling Spider

Greetings everyone, today's card is a whimsical design, I don't know why but I just thought the eyes were too funny on the spider.

A big hello to my newest follower and thanks to everyone that stops by for a visit.

Super easy to make just die cut the Memory Box Creepy Spider in the center of your white card stock and use the negative part.  Then attach a piece of black card stock behind the spider and add two googly eyes, the Poppy Stamps Web Border and the words.
