Busy Holidays!

I just wanted to make a quick post to let you know where I have been.  Nothing horrible has happened, but I have been busy with holiday preparations.  Last week was Thanksgiving, so I was busy cleaning the house, making pies and getting ready.  MMmmmmm pie!

This coming weekend my mother and I are going to be taking part in a craft fair in our town, so I will be busy gathering all my dodads for that.  I will be seeing you on Saturday I hope for another challenge from Let's Ink It Up!  All I can say is dig out your glitter, it should be a fun one!

Let's Ink It Up - Recycle It

This week at Let's Ink It Up the challenge is to recycle something.  In case you haven't heard, the challenge is going to run for an entire month now, so you have until the 30th of November to get your creations in!

Our sponsors for the month of November are Whimsy Stamps and Wags 'n Whiskers!  Yes two sponsors means two winners!  Head on over to the challenge blog and see the spectacular prizes they have in store for you guys!

For my project I altered an old square shaped canning jar.  I picked up some great paper at my local crafting store, and this seemed like the perfect place to use it.   I paired that with a tag I made out of a sizzix die cut and Stampin' Up stamp sets.  The sentiment is from the set called Snowy Play, and I filled in some extra snow with the set Itty Bitty Backgrounds.

I'm not sure yet what I'm going to put in it, but it will probably be a Christmas gift for someone!

I'm going to enter this into the following challenges:

Little Red Wagon - use red
Pixie Cottage - recycle and/or sketch (I recycled!)
Craft your Passion - anything goes
PaperPlay Challenges - circles
Charisma Cardz - with love at Christmas (does it work???)
Raise the Bar - Curves (Scallops)

Time for a Quickie

No, I meant a quick card!  Dirty minds all of you.  :P

Wow!  I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted!  It's almost been 2 weeks!  I have finally dug around in my crafty bin and created something!

Here's a simple card I have made for a friend who's father has recently passed away.  I love the sentiment, and I hope it brings her some comfort.

Image is from Inkadinkado and is colored with my copics.

I have entered this into the following challenges:

Oh La La - remember, remember
Craft Your Passion - anything goes
Little Red Wagon - use red

Best wishes for a great week everyone!
