CYP Holiday Havoc 2011 Blog Hop

Welcome to Craft Your Passion Challenges "Holiday Havoc 2011" Blog Hop!!
We are very excited about holidays and wanted to add to the chaos and havoc.

 Ok so now for my Projects I had the opportunity to use two images from a great sponsor BugaBoo Stamps. My First project is a pop top gift can I made for my girls teachers for Christmas. I used Merry Christmoose Image for this project. I colored it with copic markers.
 I first decorated the can. Then filled a bag with candy then stuffed the can with candy and sealed the top with a permeant glue. 

My second project I used the Image Margaret January. I made a gift bag. I made these for my guest I usually have at my house on New Years eve:) It was a very simply and fun project. Using Plantin school book to make the Bag. I also colored her with Copics. I added glossy accents on her glasses and the glasses. I also added stickles to her earrings, bracelet and shoes for some bling.

1. Be a follower of my Blog

Happy Hump Day:)

Well, it's the middle of the week already can you believe it. It seems that time flies a lot faster around the holiday time then any other time of the year why is that. Must be that the cosmic universe knows we have so much more to do this time of year LOL:) Well today I want to share a Thanksgiving ATC I made for a Swap in One of my Cafe Mom groups. For those that do not know ATC's are Artist Trading Cards.

The cards measure 3 1/2 x 2 1/2. There are not are fast rule for ATC's other then the dimesions. They are such a great way to explore different Art mediums.To look at more I have made you can watch my video under the ATC's Tab.

Today my Card was for CCM so it had to have at least one Cricut cut on it.
My Cricut cut is my silhouette Turkey which came from the Stretch your imagination Cartridge.

So with out further delay here is my card and until next time Create Great Art.

Wooden Ribbon Holder

I just had to share with everyone the Wooden Ribbon Holder My Hubby made me this weekend. After all the  Black Friday sales there was not a single one out there worth buying.The only one with a ribbon holder on sale was Joanne's and that was on Saturday it was 9.99 and it was a standing rack that they normally sell for 24.99. Either way it was not what I was looking for any way. So back to the drawing board sort of speak. I started to search the internet for pictures of what it was I want and finally found it. It was a google picture which ultimately caught my eye. So I brought my Hubby in to see the picture and sure enough he was like easy enough I can make that. I come home from volunteering with the animal shelter today and sitting in my craft cave is my brand new ribbon Holder:) Above is my Video Showing my Holder:)

Happy Thanksgiving:)

On this day of Thanksgiving I would like to share and ATC I made for Thanksgiving. I would also like to share the things I am thankful for . I am thankful for my family .... MY hubby who supports me in all I do no matter how crazy he thinks my adventure is. My 2 beautiful daughters who make everyday an adventure in its own. The soldiers who are not able to spend Thanksgiving with their family because they are deployed to support our freedoms. To all those who volunteer their time to help those less fortunate.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoys a wonderful day full of family and friends.
