Put a smile on your face!

Hello crafty friends! If you are a follower you know how I LOVE My Creative Time stamps and dies and Miss Emma herself is just awesome! Very creative and helpful and always there with a kind word. Well, her son Aaron has been ill for a few days now. As I was reading her updates on his status and health, I thought to myself I have to do something to put smiles on this little boys and Emma's faces!! Of course their family members as well. So I came up with this.... Put a Smile on Your Face create a card-a-thon!! Please join me in making one or 2 or more cards to help this family and make 'em smile through this tough time.
 Send your cards to Miss Emma's PO box which is posted HERE
on her website. I'd love to see what you've created as well so leave a comment and/or link to your card for us to view!!
Thank you all so very much! and May Aaron have a speedy recovery!

PKS challenge #22

Hi crafty friends! Another challenge complete! Woohoo! I have to say I did 'challenge' myself this month to get as much crafting in as possible. It relaxes me and I love the creativity so Why not! So here is my entry for PKS challenge #22. You can see details HERE

I made this 4x6 layout for a frame I got on sale at Hobby Lobby thats pretty oddly shaped, but I LOVE it!
I used PKS Home Tweet Home stamp set from June's release for the tree. LOVE this set! I know I say that about all my peachies! The grass is from a cricut cartridge which escapes me, I think it was sports mania. paper from DCWV All Boys. The banners I just cut myself from strips and scraps.
Thanks for visiting!!

PKS Challenge You've been framed!

Hello crafty friends!  I've been a crafty woman just stirring up creations! I'm having a work picnic this year, theme being "luau". I decided I would make a few wall hangings to decorate my unit with. Fit right into this challenge!! Hope you enjoy!
For this first one, I used Pack Your Bags cricut cartridge, cut off the sunglasses. I used PKS May stamp set for the lights,LOVE LOVE LOVE this set!! I used MCT build a banner kit for the tag and Have Fun in the Sun for the sentiment. The frame is a canvas I had lying around and just painted it with blue acrylic paint.


This next one is also a canvas I painted blue, I used Pack Your Bags cricut cartridge (left the sunglasses attached for this one), PKS May release for the torch border, MCT stamps Have Fun in the Sun for the sentiment on an EK success punch. Hope this makes you want to run to the beach or the pool side!!

Hello crafty friends!! I Completed challenge #2 over at Peachy Connection. Theme was Things That Fly. For some reason I went right to planes,helicopters, cars (how they 'fly' by). So I decided to use my CC Boys Will be Boys for the airplane. I think he came out so adorable! PKS everyday Character Faces for his face, MCT stamp set you are Perk-fect for the sentiment.

Time for another Throwback Thursday!

Hello crafty friends!! Time for another My Creative Time Throwback thursday challenge. You can read details HERE

I decided to use the cartridges Gypsy Wanderings and Word collage. I made this frame for my sister-in-law and family. I LOVED the font of the words in Word Collage, it was the Thanksgiving theme. I hid all of the words with my Gypsy except of course 'family'.I cut it at about 3.5" with brown vinyl and placed on the front of the glass. The scrolls in the corners are from Gypsy Wanderings. I LOVE how this turned out!!
I did have intentions on putting their names in the background, but they are expecting their 3rd child and I thought I'll wait on that! Hope you enjoy!
