Hugs & Kisses

Hi everyone and Happy Wednesday :) I am so sorry it's been so long since I last posted, things have been crazy around here with work and with getting ready for Christmas. I do have a cute little Christmas card to share with you today so I'll get right to it.

As most of you know, I am lucky enough to be a member of the Joy's Life Stamps DT. Our DT challenge this week was to create a family themed card. Since my wonderful husband and I have not been blessed with children yet (except for our three fur babies :) ), he is my family, so I thought this adorable image from SVG Cuts would fit perfectly with the challenge. I cut the image (it's from the Kate's Silhouettes set from svg cuts) out using my Silhouette. I ran her dress through my cuttlebug using my polka dots embossing folder, put everything together, added some stickles to the mistletoe, and added some doodling with my white gel pen. The bow on her dress was made using some fun Baker's Twine sent in a DT package from the wonderful Joy herself :) Next I created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. I added some pearls, a ribbon, and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts. The adorable sentiment is from Joy's Wintery Puns Stamp Set. What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thanks so much as always for stopping by. I'll be back soon with another holiday project for you. Have a wonderful day :)

I'm Still Here!!! :)

Hi everyone,

Wow, I'm so sorry it's been over a week since I last posted! I've been so swamped getting ready for Christmas and then this past weekend, I wasn't feeling too hot with sinus stuff and a sore throat. I'm still not feeling the greatest, but things have been so crazy busy at work, I can't call in sick, I must stick it out :) Anyway, I just wanted to check in with you all and let you know that I'm still here and I will definitely have some projects to share this week. Thanks for your patience with me :) Have a wonderful day! Big Hugs!

Holiday Treats - Joy's Life Stamps Holiday Blog Hop

Hi everyone and Happy Friday!!! :) I don't know about you all, but I am SO happy it is Friday :) It's been the craziest week ever, but thankfully, I survived and I'm very much looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend. Hubby and I plan to finish getting our house decorated for Christmas, then hopefully we'll get to spend some quiet time getting caught up on our DVR recordings and hopefully a movie or two :) Anyway, thanks so much for joining me today. We have a super fun Holiday blog hop going on today, it's the Joy's Life Stamps Holiday Blog Hop!!! I have quite a few pictures of my project today so I'll quit chit chatting and get right to it :)

For my card today, I decided to use a non-traditional pink and pair it with more traditional colors (like red and green) to create a fun and colorful card. The adorable girl is from Lettering Delights (Holiday Shoppers Cut It Set). I LOVE Lettering Delights! This is my first time using one of their patterns and I am in love! Once you get the cut downloaded and opened in SCAL, you can see each layer, in a different color, making it so easy to see what you want to cut and what color you want to cut it in. I cut everything out using my wonderful Silhouette, then put everything together. I next created my card base out of SU cardstock. My DP is from MME. For some finishing touches, I added Prima flowers and roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and a cute bow from Michael's.

This adorable sentiment is from Joy's Life Stamps (Wintery Puns Set).

Here's a close up of the twine I used:

The red and green twine was sent by Joy, Miss Joy's Life herself in a sweet DT package she sent me. The pink twine was from Scrappy Moms Stamps. Such a fun addition to the card! :) What do you think?

Well, that's it from me today. Thank you all so much as always for stopping by. Your next stop on the Hop is Jennie's Blog HERE. If you get lost along the way, just go back to the beginning to Joy's blog HERE. Here is a complete list for the Hop:
