Peeking Elf

This is one of the new sets from Close to my heart I ordered a month ago. I just love these little guys. Its called Merry Pursuits and they have two more elfs in the set. Aren't they adorable. I have added sparkle to the hats and the tree. The tree is from Flourishes Forest of trees, I stamped it on the edge to give it a look of a Christmas tree. Then I used one of my House mouse stamps that has the Christmas ornaments in it to add to my tree. So I used about 3 different sets to make this card. hee hee You can click on the picture to see it closer too. Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!

Birthdays are for the birds

Time for a sketch by Tamara. I just love these sketches don't you. Come play with us you can find the sketch here
I am working on Birthday and Christmas cards a lot lately. I am out of birthday and have a few that I need for some friends orders. And well Christmas is the same way. So hope noone is bored with them yet. hee hee
The birds are black I know they are dull in the picture but I can't seem to get a lot of good sun lately. Its usually while I am not home that it comes out. Grrr.... This is a set from Flourishes call Birds on Vines and I love it. I keep forgetting to put links to companies I will try to make sure I do that.
Hope everyone has a blessed day!

Natural, Neutral, I think...

Good morning! Oh what a busy last few days and its only going to get busier... This weeks challenge is Natural or neutral. I had such a hard time with this challenge. I ended up using the neutral colors and the only natural that I could come up with was this twill ribbon. The other DT's came up with some wonderful creations. Make sure to check them out and play along with us. You can find the challenge and cards here We have a sponser this week Marian from Hobbycompleet, make sure to check out the wonderful items she has up for those who join in this weeks challenge.

I will be checking out all the cards later this week. Leave a link or if you upload to SCS put TWNHPY in the search for me to find it there. Have a blessed day!

MMM Pizza Droplets and a few others

Good morning! Todays House Mouse and friends challenge was to make something other than a card. So I choose a little pizza box that was last weeks Technique challenge on SCS. I should of decorated the inside and I totally forgot. Oh well... Hope you get to play along with us. If you do post a link or put TWNHPY on SCS so I can see your creations.
I didn't get great pictures of any of these since my lighting was bad in the stamp room and the sun was not really that great earlier.

As for football... dumb dumb dumb is all I can say. We deserved to lose when we make as many stupid mistakes as we did. But I am not alone in this. Cowboys, Saints and Vikings all lost too. The only thing that was worth is was seeing my youngest son who is a Green bay fan talk smack. He must get that from his father. bawhahaha...

Hope you have a blessed week!

Wisemen Sketch 66

Good morning! Here are a few cards with another new set that I haven't gotten to play with a lot. The top card is this weeks sketch for Sketches by Tamara Tamara is still having trouble with her computer so it might not be on the site. We are hoping that it gets fixed soon.
The other two cards are ones I made the other day when a friend was over and we had some laughing and stamping time. It was a wonderful day and its too long between days like those.
Busy as always this time of year so my cards are coming less and less inbetween times. I hope you can bare with me. I know a few are wondering if I am alive between Mondays and Thursdays... I am really. hee hee... I will try to post more. But thank you for wondering about me. :0) Have a wonderful day!

Isn't this the cutest HM. Its one of my new ones I got a few months back and I love it. Boy this weekend flew by and I didn't get a smidgen of time to stamp. EEK! But it was wonderful either way.

Christmas Sketch 65

Its Thursday and that means time for a sketch for Sketches by Tamara This sketch was so much fun. The DT came out with again some awesome cards. Make sure to check them out and play along with us! The sample was intended for a 3x3 but we could do any size we wanted. I made mine a 4 x 4 and I think I will be making more of these for this years cards.

I used the new in color from SU called Red riding hood and I LOVE it. Two of the snowlakes are cut out and popped up the rest are just stamped on the cardstock. This is one of my favorite snowflake sets from CTMH.

Been crazy around here and not a lot of stamping or computer time. I hope to get some more cards done to show you with some new rubbah I got.

Some fun and excited news.... We are going to DISNEY WORLD in November. Never been to any of the Disney's so I am SO EXCITED. The twins are going to be on over load but it will be so much fun. We are going with some good friends of our and their kids. So it should be a lot of fun. So my spending is on hold so we can save now for all the toys and goodies we want to buy and bring home. hee hee

MMM He loves me, he loves me not

He loves me, he loves me not... That is the question. lol Okay this weeks House Mouse challenge was Halloween. Since I had used my only Halloween stamp last week I went with the colors of Halloween instead. This is not a holiday in my book or even one I care for so its hard anyways to get into it, know what I mean? Anyways.... I added liquid glass to the petals for a shine, but the picture doesn't really grab it well. You can clcik on the picture for a closer look and see it more. I used what scraps I had in my bin for the layout, not too bad. Very different than I have done before.

The DT came up with some wonderful creations so check them out and play along with us here I would love to see your creations so leave a link or put TWNHPY on SCS for me to check out!

For the NFL fans that are out there with me... Looks like Giants did a number on the Seahawks (whohoo Derek) and well so sorry DH and DS. They are Seahawk fans... Brutal game... Here are the regular stats now.... Saints play tomorrow night against the Vikings (Billie's team) EEK!!!

Sketch 64 Fallen Snow

Snow... I love the snow as long as I am home with a cup of cocoa and nothing to do for the day. hee hee Happy Thursday. Its time for a sketch for Sketchs by Tamara This is 64 and it is a circle card. How fun, but oh so much more complicated at least for me. I do like how this turned out. This is one of my favorite snowflake sets. Its from Close to my heart, and its just awesome. I added some pearls to the flakes and it just adds that extra little bit to them I think.

The other DT cards are just awesome, but don't take my word for it. Go check them out and then start stamping! I want to see what you come up with. So leave a link on the Sketches site for all of us to see or leave one here! Have a wonderful day!
