I created a wintery birthday card.  I found this ice skater on Winter Woodland Cricut cartridge.  I dusted off my cuttlebug and used it along with the Spellbinders Classic Scalloped Ovals for the glittered oval.  And of course so pretty crocheted ribbon from RRR.  Last but not least I dug through my stamp drawer and found a stamp set from My Pink Stamper for the sentiment.  

Up next is the very talented HAIDEE!

Just a Quick HELLO!!!!

Hello, Hello!!!!!

How are you guys today?  I have a really quick post for you today.  I've been busy back at work and back teaching religion so I haven't had a moment in my craft room.  

Here's a little something I created using my newest member of my craft room....my PE 770 embroidery machine.  A onsie for my grandson, Harrison. 


Not the best pic, I took it with my phone and really hadn't planned on posting it.  But I had a quick break at work today and thought....WHY NOT!

I hope you having a great NEW YEAR so far!  

Until next time........

Ringing in the New Year Blog Hop

Welcome to the Ringing In the New Year Blog Hop!


This blog hop is all about inspiring you to create!  It's a New Year and hopefully you'll try something new!  If you have arrived from HOLLI, then you are in the right place.  If not please head over to LISA'S blog, we don't want you to miss a thing! 

I have a few projects to share today, these are some of the things I enjoy creating:

Of course paper crafts!  I love making cards, layouts, banners, boxes and tags!  Anything paper!!!

For today, I created a quick and easy card....


I used some papers from my infamous stash.  I really need to work on getting that down a bit.  My image is from Craftin Desert Divas, I love her stamps.  I heat embossed it with some silver embossing powder.  Quick and Simple

Next up is a snowman deco mesh wreath I made for my bestie!!!!  I enjoy creating wreaths. 



I used all kinds of yummy things to make this guy.  I used deco mesh of course, some ribbon, googly eyes, fuzzy balls (who knows what the real name is) 2 wire wreaths a 12 inch and a 16 inch, black chenille twist (a/k/a pipe cleaner)  and a large orange chenille twist for the nose.  The hat was made using some light card board and the Over the Hill Cricut Cartridge the top hat and covered it in black felt, added some ribbon and a little holiday flower sprig. 

For my final project a little embroidery work with the newest member of my craft room.....my PE 770 Embroidery machine.



I actually made two of these for my youngest grandsons.  I am still learning how to use this machine and this is only the third time I have attempted an applique.  I'm starting to get the hang of it.  I really enjoy embroidering!!!!

I hope you have been inspired to get into your craft room/crafty space and make something!

Next up is my SUPER TALENTED friend CONNIE!
