November MPP - Another one Finished

Well between Thanksgiving and all the craziness leading up to it. I have finished all my cards.  I have so much fun making them...all though sometimes it is hard to get my creative juices flowing...then I wake up in the middle of the night and have an idea!  I used the Dark Tulip Stamp Set 327 from SparkleNSprinkle.  Wander on over to their website they are having some great sales!

Everyone have a great weekend...and look for more of my cards to be posted this weekend!

November Challenge

I have been busy working on finishing my November Design Team submissions.  My problem is that I keep changing them!  I am done with that and just need to type up the instructions!

I love embossing through my cuttlebug and then sprinkling sparkly embossing powder over  what I am working on.  My favorite is: EP 107 - Sparkle!  I decided to incorporate embossing into the design challenge as well as using some of the new wonderful velvet glitter - which is just amazing.  I used Stamp Set 385 - Merry Crows.  I love this set because it is so whimsical!   All these wonderful goodies can be found at SparkleNSprinkle.

The finished card (instructions will be posted later):

Wishing all of you a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!

Finally Done with October Design Team Submission

Hurray! I finished my October Design Team submission for Sparkle N Sprinkle! I just have to clean up a few little flaws I see, take good pictures, wrap it up and mail it!!! It was so much creating it!

So here it is...just have to make a few little tweaks but I am overall happy with how it turned out!

Heart Failure!!!

Can you say heart failure????  I was putting the finishing touches on my October Design Team submission for Sparkle n Sprinkle and a Diet Pepsi tipped over and almost did it in!! urghhh!!! Will I ever learn? Fortunately, my quick hands saved the day!!! I think I would have cried hysterically if anything had happened!

Design Team Teaser

Well I am back to the land of living.  I started out with bronchitis and then it went from bad to worse...pneumonia!  I am now coherent and have a little creativity in me!  I am hard at work on a design for Sparkle and Sprinkle.  Check out their website but hang on to your wallet if you do and don't blame me for being an ENABLER! lol!

So here is a sneak peak at my design team submission for this month.  It is not put together and you will  just have to wait to see it completed!

Happy crafting!!!

Friday Night!!

Friday night and my typical night in my craft room.  I was on Skype as I am most nights talking to my BFF in Florida!  We usually while we are Skyping are working on some papercraft item or plotting on how to spend more money on glitter, embossing powders, or paper!  I am surprised we are not in the poor house!!!!!  But as always she was helpful as my brain had lost all creativity and she gave me good suggestions.  I have now got to spend the rest of the weekend and next week in my sewing room so that I can finish a very special quilt for my father's 80th birthday!

Quilting Time

Today, I have been in my Paper Crafting room all day playing with paper, glitter, embossing powder and cutting and creating away.  I find it so relaxing and cheaper than therapy!! Well now I have to get off the stick and finish a quilt by next Wednesday...stay tuned for pictures!

Scrapping with Glitter and Embossing Powder!!!!

Today, I was feeling crafty so I decided to work on a layout of a scrapbook page that I plan on submitting as a candidate for a design team.  I am still playing with the page and working on the second page..but overall I am please with the first page..will tweak it a little tomorrow!

I had fun creating this layout with Dream Fairy stamp set and  glitter and embossing powder purchased from Sparkles and Sprinkles, located in Ruskin, Florida.  Take a look at their website!  Their glitter, embossing powder, and flocking is all the stamps..and I want them all! lol!!!

Update:  I decided to make this a two page layout and play with more glitter and embossing powder that I bought at Sparkle N Sprinkles...I know have glitter in my hair, eyebrows, on my face and all over my craft room...but what would life be without great glitter and some fabulous embossing powder??

Here is a picture of the layout pages side-by-side.
