Well I am enjoying my last day off of my vacation of six days straight off. It has been great. My sister came over this morning and we were going to stamp but I ended up cleaning out my crafts room while she cut several dies out with my Big Shot. I then cleaned my refrigerator and cupboards and then put all my Christmas decorations up. I also fixed Swiss steak since my hubbie ask if I was ever going to cook again. We have been eating out alot.
This quilt is for my neighbor who is due to have a baby boy in 2 weeks. Wow - I actually got it done before the baby came. LOL!
Have a great week.

Today I made a Christmas Tag for the November PTI Blog Hop. I used the PTI "Holiday Sparkle" Stamp Set and the "Tiny Treats: Christmas" Stamp Set. I also used the Large Scallop Border, the Limitless Layer Collection and Mat Stack 1 from PTI. I used the sponging technique on this tag. What fun this was to make.

I hope everyone is having a great Thanksgiving. I would like to take the time today to be thankful for my family and friends. There are so many things that I am thankful for but I can't list them all.
I wanted to post the Thanksgiving card that we made at Stamp Camp and the Thanksgiving card that I sent out to everyone. Have a great day and check back tomorrow for all the other cards we made at stamp camp.

I wanted to make a gift card holder for a friend so this is what I came up with. Here is the tutorial that I found on how to make it. It was lots of fun to make. Sorry I haven't posted much but have been busy, busy, busy. I am currently working on a baby quilt for my new little great-nephew. I am going to Stamp Camp on Saturday so should have lots of fun things to post after that.

12 - 1 1/4" squares of misc. PTI Christmas prints
1 - white Die cut (SU Snowflake #2)

Please check these other great blogs for the hop.
Now you can be inspired to make your own holiday card. I know I am. I can't believe that I have so many cards done already.

This was the latest sketch challenge over at ICC found here. Stop over and see the other great creations that people came up with. I decided to use my wreath stamp that I recently got from PTI. I just love that you can make it any holiday. Of course I had to use the large scallop die also. Another favorite of mine. This card is a sample of what I love about fall. The leaves are just beautiful right now and the colors are so vibrant. Be sure and check out the other creations.

This was a fun little purse I made out of the "Top Note" die from Stampin Up. I cut 3 printed paper and 3 solid browns from the die. I trimmed the printed paper at the dotted line and then glued to the solid brown. I then made an inside little box by cutting a solid brown piece of paper 5 1/2 x 7 inches. I scored at 1 inch at each 5 1/2 inch length and then on the long end I scored at 3" and 4". I then folded it up and cut to fold it at the sides. I glued 2 of the top note sets to each side of the box. The top is open. I scored the 3rd top note to where there is an inch at the top. I also added grommets and ribbon for the handle. Then was then glued on the the back half of the purse. I added the D stamp with 1 1/4", then glued to a 1 3/8" brown circle and then used my scallop circle punch for the outer part. I glued to the center of the front of the purse and then glued velcro on each side to keep the purse closed. You can add any kind of candy in the box.
Well now I need to clean my house so I can finish a couple more projects I am working on. Tune back in for another completed project soon.

I went to Michaels and bought some of their $1 calendars and thought it would be cute to add my own little cover. I used the "D is for Dog" stamp set again from Stampin Up. This paper I recently got at Archivers. You have to love the colors. Now I need to go back and get more calendars. I think these would make great gifts.

For the next couple of days, the blog will be devoted to dogs. I am working on a couple projects for my secret sister on SCS. Guess if she checks out my blog, it won't be much of a surprise. Today I made a set of note cards to be used for any occasion. I just love the paw border punch I got at Michaels. The stamp set was "D is for dog" from Stampin Up. I bought the paper at Michaels or Hobby Lobby. Can't remember exactly. I have had it for a while. Fun paper for dog lovers.

Today I am posting my bookmarks that I have been working on for a SCS swap. I just love this color combination from PTI. Was able to use scraps. Since my sister was having so much fun with the owl punch, thought I would pull mine out and use it. Found the fence stickers in my stash. Imagine that. The other 2 cards I used the All Booked Up stamp set from Paper Trey Ink. I borrowed one of the ideas from Olivia who made her darling bookmarks for a swap I hosted a couple of months ago. Mine don't live up to hers but sure were fun to make. Thanks for the inspiration Olivia. So now I need to find another project. Guess I will start on my Christmas cards.

This is my second blue Christmas card that I made for a SCS swap. I received the Dasher stamp in the mail from SU and knew that I had to use it. It is so much fun. I used the Lovely as A Tree stamp set for the background and then stamped darker with Marina Mist ink from SU. Love that new color. I then punched out the sentiment and added to the card. Simple yet I really like it. A few rhinestones and it was finished.
