1st christmas

Hello Bloggers!!!!
Today I actually have summin' to show you, say what??? yup I sure do.
I decided today was the day to suck it up, lost mojo or not christmas cards need to be done, so here it is my first...... in gulp TWO years!!!!

I used:
Fiskars snowflakes embossing plate for the base
Cuttlebug swiss dots for the scalloped circle
an svg paper piecing for the reindeer
random ribbon and due drops to embellish
I think its kinda cute considering, I hope you like it too!!!!
Stay tuned bloggers while I may appear not to be doing anything lately or in a LONG time, I have been learning more about sure cuts alot and how to make my own paper piecings which I will be sharing with you real soon!!!!

Birthday Butterflies

Yup another Birthday Card!!!! This one for my "sister-in-la-la" apperently I got so busy with birthdays this month I forgot to share. I think from now on when I meet people I am gonna ask "whens your birthday?" If they answer "may" or "june" my response will be "sorry we cant be friends" lol. Anyways.....the 3D butterflies are SCAL with a little bling, generic glitter glue that is my fav and I cant find more of :(, I have embossed the back ground with swiss dots by cuttlebug and punched it with fiskars threading water. The stamp is studio g, and then topped her off with a ribbon bow. Pretty simple but I love it!!!

Angry Bird

Tues is my sons 7th birthday, he is constantly stealing my ipod to play angry birds, so I made hime this birthday card. Personally I dont "get" angry birds, I only got the app to see what it was all about, maybe I am not one of the "kewl kids" but I just dont see the appeal, and I would really like my ipod back, is 7 too young for their own ipod???? lol
Happy birthday is a digital stamp I created
Angry bird is SCAL by me which you can find HERE

Race to 6

As crafters we all face struggles with our hobby, my top 3 struggles are
1. Loss of mojo
2. Masculine items
3. Not knowing the recipient 
Today I faced all my struggles, this weekend my daughter has a birthday party to attend for a 6 year old lil boy in her class....hmmm struggle 2 (boy) and 3 (dont know said boy), and if you have been reading my blog or should I say not reading my blog because there hasnt been much here to read you know 1 (no mojo) has been an issue for some time.
but I did it!!! wanna see??? ok fine.... I said I faced my fears didnt say I did it well but its ok!!!
 Race Car/Flame - SCAL by me
6- Impact
Embossed- Cuttlebug "Happy Birthday"

Now that I have done it I hope my DD doesnt catch her brothers Flu bug and have to miss the party. I also hope there are no more birthday invites as I have at least two more cards I HAVE to make this month, which is not much I know BUT when the mojo is gone its like 200.

Old Tractor

Nope your eyes are not deceiving you I did actually make something. I did however have to force myself to create after a month? of nothingness, is it the winter blues or the my new found interest in photography thats keeping me away? I dont know. Even tho I had to force it, I think it turned out to be one of my fav LOs :) I hope you like it too, maybe it will inspire you if you are going through this tough patch of winter too.
