Sometimes you have to create your own happiness....




Happy Wednesday!

I was so happy to see the NEW A2 Card Bases 1 Cutting Files last week.  I love making shaped cards and knew these would be fun to work with. I was especially excited to see the taller card, it would be great to create scenes on.  


For my card base I used the NEW A2 Card Bases 1 Cutting Files.  To make room for my sentiment I made the white card stock a little taller.  The grass is from the Flower Assortment Cutting Files.  The hummingbird & tulip are from the Spring Garden Cutting Files.


The NEW A2 Card Bases 1 Cutting Files are still FREE until this Thursday 11/20/2014.  You can get it HERE

Have a great day!

Sweets & Treats



Good Morning!

Can you believe we are already in October?  I sure can't and since Halloween will be here before I know I decided to try and get ahead of the game and start making treats for my boy's classes. 


For the topper of my treat bag I used the Handled Treat Bag Topper Cutting Files.  I was able to get 9 of these toppers from each 12x12 sheet of patterned paper.  Not too bad since I have to make about 90 of these guys.  LOL.  

The Caramel Apple is from the Fair Food Cutting Files.  The sentiment spot is from the Sentiment Spots 1 Cutting Files.  My sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's Bewitched Stamp Set.  The twine is Trendy Twine's Orange Licorice.     


Don't forget to join us this weekend for the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Trick or Treat Blog Hop.  You can join the Event of Facebook HERE.  The fun will start at Lisa's Blog.


Thanks for stopping by today!

See ya on Saturday!

I decided to enter this card into the Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge.  The sketch is below.  I used the Christmas in July Face Assortment for her face.
