Christmas Tilda


Well the weekend is about over for me !!! Tomorrow marks the return to long hours again at work this week.

So I managed to get some play time in today and made another tissue box. I just can’t stop making these. I love them.

I used an adorable Tilda from last year, seems like I am always behind on the Christmas stamps from the year before for I never get them in time to get my cards done lol


Here is a top view of the tissue box

All I want for Christmas !!!



Well believe it or not I am back with post 2 today!!! This doesn’t happen to often lol

I thought it would be best to get on the sketch over at The Sugar Bowl before I get anything else done. Oh Marlene has a gorgeous sketch for us to work with this week. I made a very CAS card for the sketch. Karen loves CAS and I am starting to really get into it too. I have used this adorable Home Grown image called Santa’s Letter from Sugar Nellie. Isn’t he adorable??? I so love last years Christmas images too so just have to use them again.

And don’t forget the Sugar Bowl has awesome prizes for one lucky winner.

For the Bride and Groom


Oh I got to play!!!!!!  Well I had some time to finish a couple of boxes I had started. You know I have all good intentions to make things then just don’t get them finished. But my nephew is getting married next weekend and I had to get this gift card box made before then. I didn’t just want to put there gift card in an envy so I used the top notch die from Stampin Up and made a little box for between the dies. I added some ribbon for handles and there you go it was done. I like it when it goes together so easy.


Here is a side view of the box

Happy Sunday !!!! Hope everyone is having a great day. I have a card here to show you for the Wild Orchid Challenge Blog which is Stitch it up!

Well I won’t go into all the details of my stitching, just say I was ready to throw my sewing machine out the door, I spent more time on trying to get it going than making my card. So I just gave up and went with the hand stitching. 

I made a card for my brother for his birthday using the new Tilda and Edwin.  I think this image is just so adorable it is called Brother and Sister.


Here is a close up picture of the top


And a close up picture of the bottom.

I am making a box for the card since it is so bulky so will show that later when it gets finished.

Merry Christmas


Evening !!!! I hope everyone is doing well!!!

As you all know I have been working crazy hours so my crafting time just isn’t what it use to be. I try to keep up with things but getting to do challenges anymore hasn’t been getting done. Plus I am waiting on an appointment with a surgeon, am having some health issues but do hope these will be taken care of soon.

But wanted to join in the Sketch Saturday Challenge that I hadn’t been able to do for a while. There is such a lovely sketch this week. This cutie here is Kiss me Quick from Sugar Nellie and I know you all love the Country Cousins as much as I do. These are available to buy over at Funky Kits , but I am sure you all have already placed your order. If not oh you know these are a must!!!

Thanks so much for visiting me and for the comments you leave me. I know my blogging isn’t much anymore but one day I do hope to catch up soon.
