Thank you all for your warm thoughts! We are all feeling much better today.

After a miserable day of being sick I came home to a wonderful surprise in my mail box.It was another birthday gift waiting for me. I open up the box to find this great bag of goodies. Filled with a note pad, a shaker box birthday card, altered magnet tin and 2 SU! wheels!! Fall harvest and doodle. Thank you Disneydeb25/Debra. I love it all thank you for making my day!! After a short rest I had craft night with my Moms Group. Hosted by my very dear friend and SU! rep. Alex I get to her house to find my latest SU! order( more wheels!!LOL cupcakes and love) had arrived along with her birthday gift to me.

Can you believe it!! I had said over and over that I was going to get this set but she beat me to it. I love it!! Beware everything I make from now on will mostly likely have one of these images on it!LO L Thank you Alex you are the best!!

After all my gushing over my wonderful gifts we finally got down to crafting!! It was called Getting Punchy. Alex showed us just a few of the things that can be made with different SU! punches.

Whismy, Purple and CD Card Instructions!

WOW I have been one lucky girl this week!! I got two of my swaps back and they are awesome!! Here is pics of the Whismy Jar I recieved.

Thank you!!Thank you CricutQueen/Donna!! I love all my stuff!!

Here is the pic from the color burst.

Everything is so cute and purple!! Thank you TeaLeaves/Sharon!!

Now for the CD card. I had a few of you ask how to make a cd into a card. So here is the way I do it.
Start with your uncovered cd and a piece of 8 1/2 x 11 paper.

Fold the paper in half.

Then glue it to the back of the cd with the fold a little on the inside of the cd.
You want part of the cd to be seen on the back.

Use your x-acto knife around the edges of the cd.

And tada!! You hae a cd card!!

Technique ATC's - Paper sewing

I hate Mondays!!
I went to the USPS to mail a package. I like to use priority mail so I had everything all ready to go. After waiting in line forever I get to the counter and realize that I had forgotten to put the address label on........ ok no big deal I get a priority stamp to put on it..... come home grab the label and dash to the box down the street..... get there throw it in...... get back in the car and what is staring me in the face........ yep you guessed it the stamp. So now I have to wait for it to come back to me!! GGRRRR A classic Monday!!!

Well here is another swap I got done this weekend,technique ATC's. Looks like all I did this weekend was ATC's!! I swear I did more!! LOL Anyway for my first spot I did paper sewing which is one of my all time favorite techniques.

I used the bazzil stitching templates and bazzil bling cardstock. Also I doodled in the petals and leaf to create a more real look to them.

Here is a pic of what my son thinks of them

Isn't he just too cute!!

Thanks everyone for the ideas for my blog candy. I am going to give away both store bought and handmade items.

April Showers bring August Fruit

Well I am back! I had a blast this weekend..... Thanks Alex!! Things got a lot better after my Friday night slump. I ended up getting way more than I thought done.

Now for a "peep show"!
These ATC's are for the Calendar ATC Swap (click on it ...hurry there are only 2 spots left!!)on SCS . For my 2 spots this is what I came up with......

First April.......
I started out with this great idea to use my cricut and cut little bunnies with eggs. So I get all 13 bunnies cut and each bunny has 7 eggs so I cut each egg different....... when a little birdie pops up and says "you know that easter is sometimes in March right" Well there I am all oh crap.... up to my neck in eggs and bunnies.

So then I am well what April so of course I think 'April showers bring May flowers.". I had this great SU! umbrella stamp and then stitched the rain drops on (still thinking of stickeling in the drops). The ATC is silver bazzil bling paper and the calendar back ground is a mat stack with little swirls on it.

Now August.......
After looking a some great 6x6 calendar pages Alex had I got inspired.One had these little apples stamped and made into a border. I thought wow fruit would be something inexpected for this. I used the lime/orange and stamped all over white and punched them out with the small circle punch. The ATC is DCWV dark stack and behind the calendar is glossy white.

I think this was my favorite from this weekend.

Anniversary CD Card

I am having the hardest time waiting for Friday..... Why you might ask..... I am going to a friends house for a weekend "crop". We are going to spend Friday,Saturday and Sunday creating our buts off!!! So YAY us!!

Now on two my most amazing card ever (atleast in my own mind)

I took a cd and covered it with CTMH paper (paper that I didn't even know I had) I found this cute little Anniversary saying and printed on regular pc paper and used my glitter painters to give it some sparkle. On the back of the cd is the purple paper to make a opening for a card. The brad and ribbon are also CTMH.

I am loving this many more will be made like this!!

Thanks for looking!!

Must be the Colors!!

So here are 2 of the things I created this weekend.

The first my card for a Year of Cards swap.
I used all SU! products. The brown "map" paper is the packing paper that comes inside of th SU! boxes.

The second is a ATC for the SU! ATC's swap. Sorry for the bad pic.I think my camera my have been dying. But as you can see I totally used the same color pallet all over again!!
Not sure what the heck is up but I think I am in a color rut.

I work part time as an Office Manager for a local Headhunter. I blog everyday except Sunday. Always with a new creation. I look forward to getting to know you all!!


Year of Cards

Another beautiful day here in Cleveland!! I am very tired after my overnight crop though! I didn't get as much as I would have liked done ....... but who does!

This card is for a Year of Cards swap I am in. This is for May.I used DCWV gunmetal for the card and Bazzil bling for the cards front and strip. The wheel and the stamp are SU! (even though I can't remember the names right now) I also used the bazzil stiching template to stich on the flower.

Thanks for looking!

First I would like to thank everyone for all the sweet comments left for me!! You are all great,talented stampers/scrappers!!

I am so excited today!! I am going to an overnight crop at a friends house so lots will get done this weekend.

Here is a card I worked on last night.(While thinking of all that needed to be packed!!)
It is for the Sisterhood of the traveling cards swap. Each month (starting in January) there is a different theme and hostess ......luckily for me some of them have already posted their themes. The theme in Jan. is flowers..... and here is what I came up with.
The card is from the DCWV darks stack, the card front/inside of flowers are SU bashful blue, and the flowers are from an SU hostess stack, the stamp is Hedi Swap.I punched the flowers with the SU Scallop circle.
