New DIY Christmas Trees (Sorry posted way...way...way late)

Here are the other Christmas trees I did. I think they turned out okay.  I think I may use some other materials next year.  These are all made out of ribbon.


Here are a couple of videos I did.  The second one is one I did with the extra little tree in the middle.

Giveaway Time!!!

Where are all my followers?  Do I have any that actually read my posts?  I never see any comments on them so I was just wondering about that.  Well, if you see this post and want to enter into the giveaway, you need to be a follower and then just leave me a comment below telling me if you are a new follower or one that has been with me for awhile.  I am hoping this will give me an idea of how many people actually "hover" around my blog.  LOL

I make a lot of videos so most of my crafts get put in a video.  I try to keep up my posts here on my blog but this year has been awful in trying to get that done.  Being "sick" with neuropathy and then trying to deal with the passing of my mom has been really hard.  However, I think I am getting back on track now.

So, leave those comments!!!  I will do a drawing for a winner in about a week. Giving some sweet crafty goodness away!

Big o' Hugs!!!

Easter Cards

Easter?  Yeah I know. I am a bit late posting this.  I almost did not even do the cards because I knew I was late, but I wanted to go ahead and do them to get ahead for next year. I really wanted to try out the very intricate egg die from Die-versions.  I am glad I had the foam backing on it.  That helped to get all the little pieces out.

I am not sure where I got this little border stamp but it is so cute.

Here is another card I did using a little bunny I won from Kat Scrappiness awhile back. I have been wanting to use it for a long time and finally had the chance.  Isn't he just so stinkin ka-yute!!!!!

Here is the last one.  The wood piece I got from a husband and wife that started making these when they became the big craze.  I believe they still make them because their photobucket page is still listed - click HERE. You can contact her at the email address listed.

I just left it kinda plain but may add something more before I send it to anyone.  Well I hope you liked these.  Maybe next year I won't be late making more.  Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.  Thanks tons guys!  Hugs!

Birthday Card for Friend

I sent this card to a friend for her birthday.  The papers came from another friend (2muchhurt on YT). I love this combination of red, white and black with all the patterns.

I really did not like the way my stamping turned out on the sentiment but I guess you have to practice with them to get it right huh?  It's okay though.  The inside of the card I just put some scraps on.  Here is the video so you can see it better.  Thanks guys!

Father's Day Card - Sorry Posted Late

I did a few Father's Day Cards one of which I gave away before I had a chance to video it or take pictures.  But here is one I did remember to catch.  The video below explains some of the supplies I used.

I think it came out okay. I like the background I used. I was trying to pick a background that went with the "frog".  Something you would see in the woods I guess.  Please leave a comment and let me know if you like it or have any suggestions as to what I should have done differently.  Thanks guys!

Hello Card

Just a little card I made for a friend.  I used some random paper I had.  I am trying to use up all the loose papers I have before digging into my paper stacks.  Not sure how long that will last though.  I used a punch for the center border and put little blingy things everywhere.

I made the butterfly from a Stampin Up Bigz die and then I put a ribbon on top of it with stickles.  Then I put random flowers on top with some bling for its body and then some antenna.  I think it turned out so cute.  I need to make more of them because they make such cute little embellies. 

Let me know what you think.  Thanks tons and big hugs!
