See You On The Web

Good Morning,

First I wanted to say thank you to everyone who has given me the opportunity to redo their blog. And I wanted to say thank you to all of my followers for following my blog. I really appreciate it.

I had so much fun making this card! Isn't it cute!

I used the Chic & Scary Cricut Cartridge to make the spider. He is cut at 2.75.
The web is a Stampin Up Die called Textured Impressions Spider Web. I used a Stampin Up Craft Whisper White Ink pad and lightly tapped it on the embossed spider web. Then I took some Pearlized White Smooch I got from SU and traced over sections of the spider web.
The Sentiment is from Clear Dollar Stamps. It is called Spider Greetings. It says See You On the Web. Its hard to see in my picture.

Have an awesome day! And thank you for stopping by:)

I'M Batty Over You

Good Morning Everyone,

Today I wanted to share with you a fun Halloween card. I love Halloween and Christmas time. And love making things for this time of year.

For this card I used Stampin Up punches.
The circle Punch 2 1/2 size.
And the Bat punch.
I punched the bats and moon out of left over grey card stock. Distressed the edges with black ink. Then I used Black Smooch Spritz on the the bats. And Black and White Smooch Spritz on the Moon.
You can find the Stampin Up Items here:
The background was left over black glitter card stock I had left over.
The stamp is one I got out of the dollar bin at a craft store a while back ago:)

Also the bat punch is on the clearance rack.
Click products/shop now/ clearance rack!

Thank you so much for stopping by and looking at my fun card:)

I also wanted to announce three more blogs I have done since my last post.
I would love it if you stopped by their blogs and gave them some love:)
I Came, I Saw, I Created.

Stamp, Cut, Create!

Preschool and crayon wreath

I hope you all are having a great day:)

My youngest started preschool and despite his constant "I will not like it" and "I dont want to go" we arrived there and he love it. At first he wanted to hide near me but once they pulled out the trains he ditched me and didnt look back. He just loves

I saw a crayon wreath project on my friends blog and just had to make one up myself for a gift for the teacher at preschool. Or should I say There are a lot of them.

I used the cricut cartridge DoodleCharms to make the Bus and the Apples. The bus was cut at 3 and the apples at 2 1/2.
I had to get creative and hang the other 4 teachers names off of the wreath.
I used 6 inch and 8 inch hoops. And left over card stock and ribbon.

Here is the link to Kim's Blog where I saw the project.

Today is my nine year olds first day and then my 15 year old starts Thursday.
So I hope to have more projects posted regularly now:)

Stay tuned for my 500 follower contest announcement.
