Be My Pal...Always

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am on Fall/Thanksgiving Break this week (Yippee) and I am really enjoying myself already. This is the first time we have had all week off and I sure am glad since I have been so involved with school this year. I went to MFT on Saturday, took a card class with Pam, and bought a bunch of new stamps and dies. Now I am playing with them. Once day (sooner than later) I am going to have to work on the camera/lighting adjustments. I need to figure out how to get bright, crisp pictures again with these new LED lights. Any suggestions?!?!

Today's project...
I wanted to join a challenge at My Favorite Things, so I decided to give the sketch a try.

This week's sketch from My Favorite Things.

I used MFT Tiny Checks paper, Happy Pawlidays puppy stamp, and Polar Pals stamped sentiment. I used Illustrator markers by Spectrum Noir (Poppy, Sorbet, Sandstone, and Golden Brown). I added some Clear Glitter Wink of Stella to the white part of Santa's hat.
 Other Materials:
white cardstock
Versafine Onyx Black ink
MFT ~ Square Frames
MFT ~ Blueprints 15 and 27
red self-adhesive pearls

Be sure to come back tomorrow for Die Cuttin' Diva's weekly challenge. I have a project to share! It has been way too long and I am thrilled to be able to participate again.

Stay Creative,

Pumpkin Challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Crafty Friends,

The new challenge at Miss Kate Cuttables started, and remember there is a free file every week! Hopefully you will be able to join us during the next two weeks with your own creation.

This Month's Challenge...
~ Pumpkin ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I made a tag for this candy jar filled with Hershey Kisses. I used two different files from Miss Kate Cuttables...the tag and the pumpkin. The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps ~ All About Fall.
Hope you will join us at Miss Kate Cuttables for the "Pumpkin" challenge. The other design team members sure did use some cute cuts. Be sure to check out ALL the variety! 

Stay Creative,

Thankful For You Crow From Miss Kate Cuttables

Hello Everyone,

I sure hope everyone is doing well. I have been EXTREMELY busy with school (LOTS of changes and student needs this year), which is why I am having a tough time getting myself to the craft room to create on a regular basis. I have made a few projects (Create a Critter baby shower ensemble and a couple cupcake birthday cards) during the past month and I went to a class at My Favorite Things, but didn't take pictures to post. Also, my hubby got me new LED lights for my photo box (I broke one of my old lights during Hurricane Irma) and I haven't figured out how to adjust the settings on my camera YET (that is why my photo coloring is a bit off).

We have a week off at Thanksgiving and two weeks off for Winter Break; therefore, I am being optimsitic that I will find time to create then. My daughter will be home from college too, so I may even have a crafting buddy. That would make me happy!

Here is my Design Team project...
Today is my day to share at Miss Kate Cuttables.

I used the following sketch from Die Cuttin' Divas.

I used the crow behind pumpkin file by Miss Kate Cuttables. The stamped sentiment is by Scrappy Moms Stamps.

Be sure to stop by Miss Kate Cuttables for your every week.

Stay Creative,
