Hubby crafted!!

We spent some quality time this evening etching!! I have to admit his came out much better than mine..some of mine ran and now a couple letters are smeared together on the bottom of my one dish..I hope the person I made it for doesn't mind..LOL..I don't think she will!! LOL!

But this is one of the things Bill did..he also etched some mugs but I didn't take pics of those or the 8x8 dish things I did..

In your Cart Swap..PDDU Cart

I was asked to "angel" a spot on this swap..and since I had so much fun doing it the first time..I of course said sure!! The lady that was going to do it was using PDDU so I just used that cart....I hope these are okay!! I didn't want to just use dolls so I had fun thinking of some other things to use..(like the dinosaur..the shamrocks..)

Easter Egg Banner Swap

I have seen these swaps for sometime now on the I seen this one had an opening and wanted to give it a try..this is my "egg"...I hope it is okay..I have never done this kind of swap before!!

I used doodlecharms for the cuts...and of course my cuttlebug for the embossing

Here is my family's wooden sign

This was done the same way as the other one..but with wooden stockings!

I am not sure why my name is looking white but it isn't..

Christmas Gift..wooden decoration!

Okay..this was a first for me..painting!! I made this snowman sign for my sister and her family to hang for Christmas..
It is just a branch from a tree, some wire, and some ribbon!!

Another Christmas Card is the newest one..I seen something like this somewhere so I decided to make my own version of it..used some white core paper and my cuttlebug, used an emery board to "distress" it to show the white core and used some distress ink for the saying on the vellum..I used the red ribbon (which I got off a pkg from Bath and Body works..LOL..yes recycling!) Used a ribbon slider and a couple brads..and here is my version!!

I think I may make a few more of these for Christmas!!

Christmas Card

Here is a Christmas card I made for this year..still not sure if I am going to make more or make a variety of cards this yr (I usually make one style) but it also has glitter, in fact, first time I used this glue pad and was fun!! I used one of my one Christmas carts for the ornaments and used one of my punches for the border...and some "bling"!! What do you think??

Challenge (for 2 blogs)

So one challenge issued by JustBugginChallenges is to use "glitter" so I used some glitter glue on the letters and added some glittery looking embellishments...then for the Practical Scrappers blog you had to use 3 different ribbons..which I did a solid, a polka-dot and a ric-rak one (the stem) I used the Sans Serif for the word...

Altered Journal for a lady on Cricut MB

There was a request for a lady to get some altered journals for her to take to the Ronald McDonald house and I was happy to make one for Kim to is what I came up with!! I used my cuttlebug Mickey folder and used some button leaves....I used the Sans Serif cricut cart to cut the words out. I am not sure why the picture came out so dark but it isn't really that dark..LOL!!
