Hello everyone! It's time for another fun challenge from the Create with Connie and Mary team! This week we are being challenged with color! Take a look at these fabulous colors!


 Mossy Meadow, Lost Lagoon and Silver! I was thinking that I could use them for a Christmas card but I wanted to use my Four Feathers set so this is what I came up with!


  • Card base is Whisper White
  • Adhere a strip of the All is Calm designer paper to the card base (this piece has silver foil dots on the paper which is hard to see from the photo)
  • Use the Project Life corner rounder to round the two right hand side corners of a piece of Lost Lagoon and then adhere to card
  • Run a piece of Whisper White card stock through the Big Shot using the Decorative Dots embossing folder and adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the feather images from Four Feathers onto Whisper White using Mossy Meadow and Lost Lagoon then cut out using the Feathers framelits dies and adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Stamp the greeting from Petite Pairs onto a piece of Whisper White using Lost Lagoon ink and punch out using the small oval punch then adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Tie a bow with a piece of silver baker's twine and adhere to card

Starry Ghost

Good morning, Friends! Whew!! It has just been a crazy few days around here for me! I thought I was doing good by being so far ahead of schedule but then my schedule caught up with me and all of the sudden I have NO time to finish anything up! UGH! I can't wait to get out of town and have nothing to do but sew! I haven't touched my sewing machine since this past summer! I miss it! Looking forward to seeing my friend and having good company on the road! Now to get this last load of laundry and more packing...

Today's card is one I put together last night. I have been wanting to put together some fall/Halloween cards before it's too late. I do love this little die cut ghost! I wasn't sure exactly how to use him but I kind of took a sketch I saw and made it work. 

  • Card base is Crushed Curry
  • Use the Confetti Stars punch to punch across the top of a piece of Basic Black and adhere to card base with dimensionals
  • Use the fringe scissors to fringe the edge of a piece of Old Olive card stock
  • Stamp the greeting from And Many More onto the Old Olive panel using Tuxedo Black Momento ink
  • Tie a piece of Basic Black 1/8" taffeta ribbon around the Old Olive panel and adhere to card with dimensionals
  • Use the Fun Fall framelits to cut a ghost out of Whisper White then stamp the face using the image from Fall Fest with Tuxedo Black Momento ink
  • Adhere ghost to card (I doubled the thickness of dimensionals at the top of the ghost)
Pretty simple! And a fun Halloween card! Thanks for stopping by and have a super day! Don't forget that we are into week 2 of the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition! Lots of fun happening!! It's not to late to join and get all the wonderful benefits of being a subscriber! I hope to see you there!

Recessed Festive Tree

Good morning everyone! I am really glad that today is a shorter day for me! I really need to get downtown to find shoes and pants! While the weather gets really nice in the afternoon, I know it is only a matter of time before it will stay colder all day. And right now all I have to wear are capris and sandals! My feet do get a little cold in the mornings! But I do have a dilemma today as the Kansas City Royals play this afternoon! UGH! What to do? I don't want to miss this game because if they win it will be another sweep! Wahoo! I guess I'll see where my car takes me after school - lol!

Hello everyone! I can't believe that my fall break is over! Monday it's back to work. It was too bad that I was sick for the first part of my break. Doesn't seem fair. I didn't accomplish near what I wanted. I tried to go shopping yesterday as I need some fall clothes and shoes - mainly pants and shoes. I ended up getting shirts and no pants or shoes. Ugh! I hope it stays warm for a little longer until I am able to go shopping! I just don't know what the styles are so I need to do a little research and then come up with a plan. Today's plan is stamping! Yikes! I have club coming up on Monday and I need to get that all ready! No free time for me until that is accomplished!!

Preview Week Day 4: Wondrous Wreath and Blog Candy!

Good morning everyone! It's Preview Week at Create with Connie and Mary and I'm SO excited to share my Preview Week project with you all! And I am also offering blog candy! More on that later in my post...

For my preview project I am featuring 4 cards and a gift bag to hold them in. I decided to put my cards and envelopes in this bag so that I could give them to a friend who loves to give handmade Christmas cards but doesn't have the time to make them. The bag is super simple as it uses the new Polka Dot Tag a Bag Gift Bags! And it is held closed by using the cute little clothespin from the Trim the Tree Tag a Bag accessory kit found in the Holiday mini catalog! All my cards use the same colors and designer paper pack so that your supplies are limited. And the cards are easy to create because Stampin' Up! has made these stamps as photopolymer sets which are super easy to line up and create gorgeous images! I created all Christmas cards here but by changing the colors you can create wreaths for any season! Don't forget that this set comes as a bundle and you can get the matching framelits to make cutting them out a breeze! The framelits also come with two die cut words to help make your projects even more elegant! Love this set! Can you tell - lol! Anyway, to see each card individually and to download the FREE tutorial, head on over to the Create with Connie and Mary site! While you're there don't forget to sign up for the Holiday Edition 2014!
