In the Treetop

One more card from In The Treetop to share. This cards started with that peice of fabric tied around the tree image. It's where I took my colors and "feel" for this card. The colors are a little more cohesive IRL, not sure what happened with the picture, it's a little funky. I love this fabric, I made pillows for my couch out of this fabric and this little strip was leftover....I couldn't throw away even this tiny scrap - I knew I could use it somewhere! I found so many new blogs over the Christmas holiday...I can't wait to start being crafty! I just need to organize my time better!

A Christmas present

So, this is my Christmas present for my girls. I really hope they like these skirts...not just because of the the time and blood (yep I bled while making them, but not on the skirt!) I just think it is too cute and i hope they are as excited to get them as I am to give them. I made matching hairbows for them too, but just couldn't get a good picture. Have a Merry Christmas!

In the Treetop

This is the last of my assignments for In the Treetop from Lizzie Anne. We made it through the storm without losing power for long. We now have just over 2 feet of snow on the's crazy weather for here in the Northwest. Another round of it tonight..1-6". I know for some places - this is just normal, but we rarely have a white Christmas here. My girls are super excited about it! I just hope we make it to Grandma's house tomorrow!

This was supposed to be a Christmas card, but well, I got side tracked and it just a fun thank you card! And after Christmas, thank you cards are needed in abundance. The colored were inspired by the ribbon. Are you staying warm? It is supposed to be below zero here in the northwest with the windchill tonight, and there is a "possibility" according to the weather guy that we will lose our power. hmmmmm, below zero temps and no heater! Doesn't that sound fun! I stayed up late last night and spend a bit of time today finishing my sewing for Christmas. I found the cutest pattern for a skirt for my girls this summer, and recently found just as cute fabric. So.... I've been sewing, but that is another post. Have a great weekend! I'm not sure when I'll post again, if the power goes out and is anything like the last time it went out during a winter storm, it will be a while. Two years ago we were without power for 7 days just before Christmas. That one caught me off gaurd, this one I'm prepared for, least I'm ready for Christmas!

in the tree top

This *might* be one of my favorite cards with this set. I love the colors, and the layout (that is a favorite that I use again and again!) This set too offers many possibilites of what you can do with it!

Giddyup Girl

I love this set for so many reasons... it is so versitile and that is my number 1 priority about buying a set. Can I use it for more than one occasion? The one can be used for boys, girls, little kids, grown ups, birthday, get well, good luck, Christmas, really - anything you can think of!

Happy Birthday!

It's been a long time since I posted last - I don't know where time went! This is a birthday card I made for my neice and nephew's first birthday. They just turned one and are just the cutest! We love seeing pictures of them - they live so far away! The invitation came with a bandana tied to it and I knew just the stamps to use for their card. I even cut up paper that I had just purchased - I didn't even hoard it! Hope they (ok - they are one - they don't care, really it was made for their mom!)she liked it!
