Reindeer Thank You Cards

The Box

The Card


This has to be my favorite that I did on Christmas Day. Though the pics don't really do them justice. They were so fun to make and I got to bling them up by using different colored gems on each card. Package of six. My SIL loved them.

Not sure if sewing counts but I have sewed a couple things for my little buddy Pikachu. He goes with me almost everywhere and since we live in Oregon, that means its chilly and damp or down right rainy. (Though this year has been remarkably drier than I can remember it ever being) Anyhow, he has to wear some kind of sweater or cover if he's to be out and about or he shakes something fierce. So I've made up a few things for him and will be posting those in the future too. Hope everyone has a safe and happy new years!

Snowman Gift Set

Pretty sure my sister in law doesn't check my blog. But just in case, I cropped the pics to weed out as much of her floor as possible. Ha Ha Ha! This is the snowman card that I made on Christmas Day. Gave to my sister in laws sister. What would that make her? Not a sister... But I see her almost as much as I see my sil. So maybe... :)

Anyways, Recollection stamp for Mr. Frosty. I just love their foam stamp sets. STILL haven't made it out to the craft room since that day to find out the name of the paper pack I used but its from Michaels. And I'll let you know eventually if you care. HOW DO YOU GUYS KEEP UP WITH ALL THE DETAILS to describe what you did and used? Maybe that should be my new years resolution. Write it down!!! But I think I'll be happy with just making it out there to create and leave you hanging on the details from time to time. HA!

Hope you are all having a fabulous day.

Ever Feel Like This?

I know this isn't crafty, but I saw this picture and got a huge kick out of it. Every day I feel like the world is pushing against me and I am struggling to push back. I think I will print this. :)

Mistletoe Thank You's

Card Front:


Inside The Card:

Again, I apologize about the dark and random photo of this. But hey, I am posting! Thats the main thing right? This is the continuation from yesterdays post about the card sets I created to give away on Christmas Day. My intention was to do holiday gift cards but to leave the inside blank so they could be used for their thank you's. I wanted to embellish and bling this up but I ran out of time. Hubby literally had the card loaded and running the engine waiting on me. Yikes!

Season's Greeting

Pardon the bad pics coming at you... for the near future. They were taken in a dark hallway with my phone. But at least I am posting!

The paper was purchased at Micheals (I will come back and post the manufacturer here in a bit) but I wanted to make sure I at least got this much on here. Recollections for the stamp. LOVE IT!

I did six of these for a "set" to give away for christmas. They were done in a hurry so I didn't have time to get good pics or details for you. Over the next few days I'll be posting the others I did in my wild spree of card making. I was super rushed because I did them a couple hours before we were going to a party. But man, it felt SOOOOO GOOOOOOD to be crafting again.

I won't tell you the state of my craft room at the moment. No, there were not any recorded hurricanes in Oregon. But off the record... I believe one hit my room head on!!!

Hope everyone had a super fantastic holiday. I've missed you all while I was away and hope to be hopping to some blogs soon to visit. Take care everyone.
