Cut it Up #163 - Holiday Tic- Tac -Toe

Hello and happy Friday, rain in the forecast for our area.  Today I am sharing a card created for the Cut it Up challenge blog, the theme this time is Tic-Tac-Toe and the sponsor for this challenge is Newton's Nook.

For your inspiration I have created another holiday card using paper from the Authentique Festive 6x6 pad, I cut the wreath using the Create a Critter 2 Cricut cartridge, added some twine and Recollections gems and this card was done!  I added some wink a stellar to the wreath and attached  it to the card using some foam adhesive.

I hope you will head over to the Cut it Up Challenge blog for more inspiration from our design team and join us for our Tic -Tac -Toe challenge (board provided) for a chance win a gift certificate from  Newton's Nook .  The challenge  starts today and ends on Wednesday, December 26,2018 at noon EST.

Thank you for your visit, I'm sharing this card for the 'Tis the Season challenge over at Shopping Our Stash.  Wishing you and yours a wonderful weekend.

Hello and happy Thursday, two hour school delay this morning and cloudy skies in our area today. Speaking of school I'm sharing another LO created for one of Baby Girl's albums.  I am trying to complete at least five more LOs by the end of the year.  This LO uses sketch inspiration from one of the challenges from the Merry & Bright online crop hosted on FB by Sketch N Scrap.  Most of the papers used came from an old paper pad that I picked up in TM a few years ago.  I struggled with the LO sketch but I think that it came out fine, I tried to pull some of the colors from both of their clothing.  The base of the LO has embossed dots, I cut the stitched circles for the title using an unbranded die set, used Love Nicole letter dies, painted the butterfly and added some wink a stellar to the stars.  Another LO done with the exception of the journaling which will be hidden.

Take care and hurry back tomorrow for my latest design team project.

Brighter Days

Hello and happy Wednesday, another inclement weather day here for the kids, hopefully they will go tomorrow!  I'm back today doing a driveby post of a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from Fall to Layout #101 Take 2 over at Palmtrees and Pogosticks.  I used mostly scrap paper from my stash, I do know that the flowered pattern paper is from Jillibean Soup.  I added a Recollections flower, a button and an unbranded stamp for the sentiment. Another completed card and ready to go postal.   I'm sharing this card for the Super Scraps Saturday #382 over at Hiding in my Craft Room.

Thank you for your visit, hurry back!

Reindeer Greetings

Hello and happy cold Tuesday, another inclement weather day for the kids but duty calls and I am going to work.  Today's card share uses sketch inspiration from the December card sketch over at Stick it Down.  The paper came from one of the AC paper pads that I think was originally sold in Target but I picked mine up in TM.  I used the Create-a-Critter 2 Cricut cartridge to cut the reindeer, used a glitter pen for the stitching and stamped the sentiment.   Another card created and going postal for the card angel group.  I am sharing this card for the Christmas card challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2.

Thank you for your visit, hope you come again soon!

Hello and happy Monday afternoon, I weathered the snow and came in to work this afternoon.  So I'm doing a quick driveby post of a card that I put together using sketch inspiration from card sketch #135 over at Sketch N Scrap.  The card came together rather quickly, I used pattern paper from the My Mind's Eye Christmas Wish 6x6 paper pad, I have just a few sheets and some scraps left and this pad will be done!  The sentiment is a cut apart from a Simple Stories Classic Christmas 6x6 paper pad.  I'm sharing this card for the Anything Goes challenge #77 over at  Cardz TV. 

Thank you for your visit and I hope you'll return soon.

Snow Day

Hello and happy snowy Sunday, I am back in bed when I should be up cleaning or doing something constuctive other than watching Hallmark movies.  Today I am sharing a card that I made using sketc inspiration from sketch #482 over at Tuesday Morning Sketches.  I used more paper from the Authentique 6x6 paper pad, a stamped sentiment from last year's leftovers and some enamel  Trees from an embellishment pack.  The gold paper is from Recollections and the sentiment was stamped with the Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  I am almost done with my holiday cards so I can work on more LOs and other types of cards for the rest of the month!

Thank you for your visit and I hope you will return soon.

Hello and happy Saturday, lots to do today as we are preparing for Baby Girl to attend her last high school homecoming dance.  We are hopeful that the impending weather will hold off until Sunday.  Today's project share is a LO created using pictures of Baby Girl after she placed in an event at a FBLA conference, she won second place for a public service project that she did on bullying.  I used papers from the DCWV Teenage Dream paper stack, cut the title and stars using Cricut cartridges and added some bling and stickers that were gifted to me by another crafter.  This  LO is my half way mark for my self imposed LO challenge and it also means I won't get 52 LOs completed this year.
I'm sharing this LO for the December Anything Goes challenge #29 over at the Love to Craft challenge blog.

Thank you for your visit, enjoy your weekend.
