Peachy Keen ~ Out of Candy!

***Yes this is my third post today!  Please scroll down for EAD's Goodbye Hop and My Creative Time's 3D Wednesday!***
Hi again!  I had a little time on my hands today so I thought I would head over to Peachy Keen to see what their challenge was.  Well, the challenge ends tonight, that's why I'm posting for the third time today instead of waiting till the morning!
Peachy Keen's challenge this week is Peachy Challenge 41 :: 3-D Objects :: Wall Art, so I thought I would make a cute little sign for when I run out of candy tonight!

***if you are looking for My Creative Time's 3D Wednesday, please scroll down.  This is my second post of the day***
Hi Everyone!  Yes this is my second post today.  Normally I would be thrilled to post, but this post is really hard for me to write.  This is the last day that I will be posting for EAD Designs, as they will be closing their doors today.  :(  I want to thank Emily for all the fun I've had making cards, layouts, and home decor projects, that I couldn't have completed without her fabulous products!  I'm truly going to miss working with them...once my stash runs out!
Ok, let me get right to this, you should have arrived here from Rose's wonderful blog!  If not please head over to EAD's Blog for the start!
The hop doesn't officially begin until 8am MST.

3D Wednesday ~ Pop Up Christmas Card!

Happy Wednesday!  Today is 3d Wednesday at My Creative Time!  Usually that means anything but a card, however today it's just the opposite!  I have to admit I struggled with my card...not the concept, just the execution!  lol!
I used My Creative Time's ornament die for my poinsetta, then added some gold stickles for the center.

For the inside of the card I cut the house from Pop Up Neighborhood, the holly, tree, and sentiment stamps are from My Creative Time.  Colored the holly with copics.

Happy Birthday ~ Card!

Hello my crafty friends!  First of all to my east coast friends, I hope you've weathered the storm and are safe!  As crazy as it sounds, here in California it was mid 70's.  I can't believe it's the end of October with this warm weather!
Today I wanted to share a card I made for a "new to me " challenge blog, Deconstructed Sketch No. 75.  If you've been living under a rock as I have, go check out her great sketches!

It's hard to see, but I stamped the chicken wire background on a small border attached under the jute.

Best Witches ~ Treat Bag!

Happy Friday Friends!  I have a super quick post for a super quick treat bag to share with you!  Since Halloween is just around the corner, I thought I would make some treat bags for my coworkers.  This really took no time at all!  
I used Teresa Collins Chic & Scary Cricut Cartridge and her Haunted Hallows paper to create this fabulously spooky treat bag!

I used Stazon ink for my stamp, I think I need to reink it though!  :/

Now this week I had a little more time to play so I decided to enter another challenge!  I used to do them all the time, but life had gotten busy.  Also I needed to make a card for a friend's birthday so the timing was perfect!
This is for mojo monday sketch challenge mojo264

Like usual there is a lot going on!  lol

Don't you just love my little burlap flower!  I used burlap from my boutique and My Creative Time's Flower Die!  I cut 4 of them, so they pop off the card!

3D Wednesday ~ Snowflakes from Heaven!

Happy Wednesday my paper lovin' friends!  It's 3D Wednesday at My Creative Time!  For today's 3D project, Miss Emma asked that we create an ornament!  I was so excited to see that I was on the schedule for today!  I've had this project in my head for awhile and couldn't wait to create it!  So on to my new favorite project...

This is the backside, cutting the snowflake on a doublesided paper makes it beautiful on both sides!

Sorry there's a bit of glare from the embossing.

I put one pop dot in  the center in between the layers.  I love the side view too!

Happy Fall ~ Card!

Good morning my crafty friends! I have a fun Fall card to share with you today.  I don't always have time to enter challenges, but I did this week.  So I headed over to Peachy Keen's blog to see what their challenge was.  I'm not sure if you noticed, but lately I've been using nontraditional colors for the seasons.  I used blues, creams, and brown for my fall card and The Cornies Peachy Keen faces, to make it even more unconventional!

The challenge is to showcase the sentiment or words as the focal point, 

Of course I had to add glitter!  My card never look complete until I add it!  :)
