Home and Hearth Window Birthday Card!

 Hello, Glad you could stop by. I should still be in the kitchen cleaning but I made me a cup of coffee so I thought this might be a good time to get this post made. My Grand Kids will be here in less than an hour and I can tell you now that I won't have time after that.
Today I want to share a Card that I made for my Mom for her Birthday.
I used the fall Image from the Happy Scene Stamp Set again. This time I used It with the new Home and Hearth Window Die that I just got from Stampin Up. Love It!!!
Didn't want to add a lot to the front. So just added some dark brown Hemp Twine with a Leaf Button. The Sentiment is from Stampin Up called Sincere Salutations. The Patterned Paper is from Teresa Collins- Vintage find Paper pad. The Curtain Valance was made using a white doily and I just sponged it In Cranberry Crisp Ink.
That's It for today, Thanks for stopping by. Have a good Day and keep Creating!

Happy Scenes Birthday Card!

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Hope you had a Fun Halloween Weekend. I went Trick or Treating with my Daughter and my two Grand Children.

 I Love going and seeing all the kids dressed up. They now close off the busiest streets for the kids. No vehicles allowed.  So much safer.

 Here is a picture I took of my Grand Children in their Halloween Costumes.


I Loved their Costumes this year. Scarlett was a little old Lady and Walker went as a Walker (Zombie). Fun times!!!

Today Is a Special Day, It's my baby girls birthday. Well she Isn't a baby anymore, she is all grown up. But our children will always be our babies. If your a Mother you know what I mean.

 My daughter LOVES everything about fall. So do I. It's the best time of the year and she also Loves Rustic. So here is her Card.


  I was so Excited to get to use my new Stamp Set from Stampin Up called Happy Scenes and also I used my new background Stamp called Woodgrain. Also from Stampin Up.  Love them!

I Inked the background Stamp with Close to Cocoa Ink and stamped it on Soft Sky Cardstock. I then sponged a little Close to Cocoa around the edges. Adhered It to a Dark brown Cardbase.

The Leaves were cut from the " A Child's Year" Cricut Cartridge. Two in Very Vanilla and one in Cranberry Crisp.

Stamped the Image with Close to Cocoa and then used my Blender Pen to color the pumpkins and leaves. Sponges just a tiny bit of the Soft Sky to have a little blue in the sky.

 Placed one of the vanilla leaves behind the cranberry crisp one just so it would show up a little more.

 Added a Scalloped Border to the bottom in Vanilla and that's It.
It was actually a pretty easy card to make. I Love seeing a Card or project come together.

So that's It for me today. Hope you enjoyed my Card and would Love for you to come back for another visit.

 Happy Fall Ya'All and Happy Crafting!

 Wishing my Beautiful Daughter Jade a Happy-Happy Birthday!

Bokeh Card

 Hello and Good Day to you. Glad you could stop by. I have had a bad cold for over two weeks. Cough all the time. I am so sick of being sick.

 Even though I can't stop coughing, I thought I would share a card that I made for my Sisters birthday.
 For her Card I thought I would try the Bokeh effect. This was my third attempt at making it. I just didn't care for the first two. So here is the one that I made.

 Used Stampin Up Inks Tempting Turquoise and Lavender Lace. Stamped and sponged circles using Whisper White Ink.

The Stamp Set I used is Garden Silhouette (Retired) from Stampin Up. I accidently used clear embossing powder instead of the white. So then I had to emboss over it again in the white. So the Image isn't as crisp as It should be.  I can't remember what Embossing strip I used.

Well that's It for today. I've got to head off to work here in a little while. Think I'll go make me another cup of coffee first.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Day to you, Cindy

Gift for Baby Everett!

 Hello, Thanks for stopping by. Wanted to Thank everyone who hop along last month on the School Rules blog Hop. That was a lot of fun. Seem to be very busy these days. I was only working two days a week. Now I'm working four. My Daughter is now working two jobs. So I have the Grand Kids after school. 

 The Weather is finally getting cooler and the trees are changing color. It's Fall. Yeah!!!

Oh, I did want to share with you all that my Beautiful Grandma Sophie celebrated her Birthday a few weeks ago. She is now 102. What a Blessing she is to my family and I.

 I also wanted to share a  present that I made for my niece Tiffany. Gave It to her at her baby shower.

 I had planned on making a Card with the Elephant,then decided to frame it. Thought it may make a nice gift to set In the Babies room.

 The problem I had was that I couldn't find the right frame for it and was running out of time. So before I went to a yard sale, I decided to ask God to help me find a frame there. So went to the yard sale and there it was,the perfect frame. I do believe in the power of prayer. (Thank you God)!     

 The frame was black,so I decided to paint it, Glad I did                                       
 Supplies that I used-
 Cricut Cartridges, Cricut Cake (Birthday Cake)
 A Child's Year
 Cricut Classic Font

 Close to Cocoa

 Buttons,Punch for eye, Linen Thread,Stampamajig,Sponge

 Thanks for stopping by, Cindy
