Rubbernecker Ethel

Okay I have been bad, bad, bad.  My poor neglected blog.  Today's post is a card that I made for a challenge over at SCS.  This was our December image that we were to make in to a card.  When I saw the sketch challenge over at Sketch Saturday I thought it would fit perfect with this image.

I liked this card so well, I just might have to give it to my sister in law for her birthday.  She would appreciate the humor in this card.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Todays' challenge over at Twisted Tuesday is to make a tag or something with a tag on it.  The twist is to use something that makes you smile.  I loved this challenge.  It doesn't show up on the picture very well but glitter is what makes me smile.  I used it on the background and the snowflakes.  The cute little snowman is a digital from Two Paper Divas.  The digital set is called Flakey Friends.  I am really getting in to the whole digital thing.  I need more practice but storage is a breeze.

Happy Birthday Vannessa

I made this card for my dear friend Vannessa.  I always want her card to be just right because she is a true artist.  I wish I could remember where I got this digital image but it is perfect because she has beautiful irises at her house and always sends beautiful pictures of them.  We call our little group the Iris Buds.

The bow is a new die from MFT that I simply love.

Well happy birthday Vannessa.  Here's to many more.

Sketch Saturday Challenge #237

Two Paper Divas have this new snowman image for sale.  The set is called Flakey Friends.  I love it and have several projects planned using the images in the set. 

I really liked the sketch this week at Sketch Saturday so I decided to use it for one of my last minute Christmas Cards I am making.

Happy Birthday Debbie


I am a little late in posting this card but I made this card for my friend Debbie whose  birthday was last week.  I had contacted Mary Ellen at Dearie Dolls to see if she would do a digital scrapbooker image for me and this is what she came up with.
Isn't she just adorable?  If you haven't been to Dearie Dolls to see her digitals, you must stop over.  I just wish I had the time to do them all.

Twisted Tuesday Challenge

Todays challenge over at Twisted Tuesday Challenge was to use white on white.  The twist of the challenge was to use a snowflake somewhere.  I had to add a little silver to make it pop.  I used the Stampin Up snowflake embossing folder and added extra snowflakes with glitter on top.  A little white late and some sparkle thread adds to this card. 

This is such a fun challenge.  Hop on over the Twisted Tuesday Challenges and give this weeks' challenge a try.

Marker Holder



I have some extra copic markers around my house and decided that I would try and make a fabric holder and use up some of that fabric I have sitting at home.  Below is what it looked like when completed.
 
 When you open up you will see that there are 2 sides to put your markers.  There is an extra piece of fabric to cover the markers and when the markers are sitting up, it will not slide on the table.
 Here you will see that this will hold up to 32 markers. 

Isn't this great how you can see the markers as they sit up.
If I ever get energetic and decide to make some more, I thought it would be great to color coordinate my markers.  So I should put all my green and pink ones in this carrier.
I guess we will see how many more I make.

Class Fun




I taught my class at Remember This Remember That yesterday and had a great time.  It was wonderful having alot of my supportive friends in class.  Above are the treats that I made for all my students.  I always make them a thank you for coming to class.  I included some of my dark chocolate marble bark which has toasted almonds, dried cherries, white chocolate and dark chocolate. 

Below is what I made for all my stamping buddies.  I went to Michaels and bought those $1 calendars and then personalized them for all my friends.  I thought they turned out pretty cute.  I even have one for myself.
