Hello!  Thank you so much for making last week so fun and leaving me such sweet comments!  I don't have a project to share with you, however I'm so excited, for a couple of reasons!  One, is that this is a short work week for me, so that's always nice!  And two, I get to pick one person from My Creative Time's November Release to be one of the 19 to be entered into the final drawing for the Cricut E2! 

drum roll please...  ...  ...  my pick for one of the 19 to be entered into the final drawing...is...  ...  ...

Loved stopping by & being part of the blog hop.
Sure hope to win that E2. That would be something else. Even if I don't it is always worth stopping by to see you & all these fantastic creative bloggers.
Crafty best wishes,

My projects today are all about party favors!  I made one using Emma's new Lollipop Die and the other with the stamped "classy girl"!

My Creative Time's November Release Day 2!

Hi!  Didn't you love what everyone on the My Creative Time's Design Team did yesterday!  If you liked the football stamps, just wait til you see today's!  That's right...more "MANLY" stamps!  I'm not kidding when I say Emma has out done herself with this release!

For today's project, I decided to make a card.  This card could be given when one achieves  a new belt in a martial art!

I cut a piece of gray paper the size of my card.  Then cut the starburst, so the lines intersected at the upper left.  Then I pulled out every other piece.  I hope that makes sense to you, I just don't know anyother way to explain it.  :)



recipe:
Plantin Schoolbook Cricut Cartidge
circle cut 2.55 x 2.45
circle cut 1.00 x 1.00 (inside card)
Pagoda Cricut Cartridge

Chicken Wire Frame!

Hi everyone! 
Yes, this is my second day in a row that I have posted two times for the day (scroll down to see my other post)!  This past summer I went to one of the Scrapbook Expos with Emma (My Creative Time) and Katie (Crafting with Katie).  When we were there we saw the cutest frames in the Stampin Up booth and knew that we had to make them!

Here is what mine looks like...its a small one  :)

To see how we made this, go to Emma's for a video of the three of us!  I want to thank Katie and Emma for a super fun day...don't be surprised if you see more of us together!  :)

Happy Veteran's Day!
