Thank You and Enjoy!

Hello All! Well I told you I would have at least on last Sassy post for you so here it is. Ive made this...

Pin It

Thank you card using Cinders for the sweet photographer who took pics of my sisters wedding. She took some pics of my family and I and sent me a disk all free of charge, so super nice of her!! I usually take our family photos, but it's really hard to be the one taking the pic and being in it as I don't have the necessary remote. If your in the market for a wedding photographer she does beautiful work and will travel just about anywhere for it check out her site here.

Next up my first large tag...

... Using Domestic Goddess. I know some of you out there make these all the time and can get them pretty elaborate, but for whatever reason I really struggle decorating them. I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out and since I've been known to hand out the baked goods every now and again I think it will come in handy.

That's all for today folks. Thanks for stopping by and as I said before. Its' going to be quiet around here for a while. I'll try and get a pic of those stocking on here when they are done but I have so much Christmas stuff left to do and as I mentioned before I'm probably taking a little trip so more than likely I'll see you in the new year.

Have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Southern Girls #34

Hello everyone! Hope you are having a lovely week. I'm still crazy busy getting ready for Christmas, how about you, getting close yet?? Well I suppose that's not what I'm here to talk about so I should get on with it. Today begins a new Challenge over at Southern Girls and the theme is "Let's Celebrate". That can be any kind of celebration Christmas, Birthday, etc. Here's what I came up with...

using a sponsor supplied image. This was supposed to be w/o flowers of any sort, but that corner just looked soo empty. I really gotta work on being able to make CAS cards. This is Southern Girls last challenge for this year so please stop by and check out the rest of the DT creations and our sponsors Di's Digi's and Stitchy Bear.

Thanks for stopping by today! I'll be back in a couple day's with some Sassy inspiration for you.

Have a wonderful day!

Simply Primping

Hello everyone! How have you been this week? Sadly myself and DD have been under the weather thus the reason for the continued quite around here. I'm still not quite up to par, but getting there. Earlier this week I made this....

little door hanger using Tease Me from the newest and last set of Simply Sassy's. I've left it simple since it's for a door and will be getting knocked around.  I did make sure to use some fun bright colors and lots of pink! I tell ya in a house of four boys I could really use one of these think it would kill them to knock!!

That about explains her so it's a short post today and there's probably not going to be to much more before Christmas. I have one more Sassy post and that's going to be two projects for you and my Southern Girls challenge coming up this week but that will probably be it for a while.  I don't know what I was thinking, but I told my kids I would make their annual Christmas jammies this year(I am not a sewer) and it seems we can't find their stocking so now they want me to make those too....completely winging that one. Shopping is almost done, so that's good, but hubby is gone for one more week so I won't really be able to finish that up til he returns. My Grandfather whose been very ill is up at my moms right now and since that's much closer than where he lives we are going to try to make it up to see him for the holidays. I will try to at least pop in and say hi and if my sewing experiences turn out I'll share them with you...that's a big if though,lol. Wish me luck. I hope all of your holiday plans are coming along and I'll see you back here next week with some more Sassy inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!

Hello Everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Mine went by super did my whole week really. Anyway, last week I I got some exciting news which was this...

Yep, I couldn't believe it, they picked little Ole' me to be Guest Dt member, I was floored!! Still can't really believe it,lol. There are so many gorgeous creations out there and especially on that challenge site  it's such an honor.

 I was told we were supposed to use a shaker box in our creation and go along the theme of Christmas. This is what I came up with...

I grew up in MN and even though I now live in the south I still think of snow when I think of Christmas. I realized upon completion of this it might not be exactly what they had in mind, but lucky for me they said it was ok, whew! If you frequent my blog you've seen this before and know it's actually and easel card. Here's what this one looks like in it's easel stance...

I decided this time around to put a few dots of stickles on the inside of circles so it didn't look so plain when opened this way...I think it did the trick as I was not completely happy with the last one I made. If you're new around here or didn't get it last time you will find a tutorial for this on my tutorials tab  underneath my blog header.

Well, that's all for today. I'll be back soon with some more Sassy inspiration for you. Thanks for stopping by and make sure you check out the TOMIC challenge and the amazing DT creations!

Have a wonderful day!

Simply Gifted

Hello lovely blogging friends! Boy, I forget just how crazy this time of year is for me. My son's birthday was yesterday, so I've been busy preparing for that... sorry it's been so quiet around here. I had planned on having some extra stuff for you, but I guess it will have to wait just a little longer. I do at least have some Sassy inspiration for you and that is this...

...Sassy gift box. I was actually just going to make a cute little tag with this beautiful limited edition Season's Greetings stamp, but I thought it would look better if I put it on a gift and well, it evolved,lol.

Here's another view...

I love these gorgeous Christmas papers from MME! The flowers are from WOC and the pearls and lace are from my stash.

Here's a closer view...

I liked the idea of white hair for some reason and since there wasn't much else to color this really came together quickly and will be perfect for one of my sister's gifts. I think this girl's gonna end up on a lot of Christmas stuff!

That's all for me today! Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful day!
