Squigglefly's Monday Challenge

Hi all!
I wanted to invite you all to join in our Squigglefly challenge this week! The Challenge is "Oldies, but Goodies" and I have lots of those --so it was hard to pick just one! The image from Squigglefly that I picked to use for this challenge is by artist Lynne Stansbery and is called Prairie Wind.
Isn't she just Gorgeous!?!! I just love the way she is standing in the wind--but I also think she looks like she could be holding her arms out for a BIG HUG!!
Thanks for stopping by today-I hope to get around to see you all soon!

Snowflakes...with The Cutting Cafe

Hi all!
I am not looking forward to the snow season, but I do love these SNOWFLAKES over at The Cutting Cafe! I have used my Art Philosophy to cut out the scallop card shape -then layered with the Snowflake Circle, and the sentiment from The Cutting Cafe's - Snowflake Huge Circle printable stamp set.

Sorry that my photo seems blurry-I even re- took it, and it didn't help.
Make sure to check out all the DT inspiration on The Cutting Cafe Blog- Wednesday evening!
Thanks for stopping by!

one of my Christmas presents done...

I have seen something like this on Pinterest-so thought I would make my daughter Brittany one for Christmas-obviously I need to get a black dry erase marker for her - as I think  it would show up much better!
I have used Papers from:
My Minds Eye-Lost and Found-Breeze
Cosmo Cricket-Earth Love
My Minds Eye-Miss Caroline
Basic Grey-Lemonade
Black vinyl-cut on my Cricut using Disney Mickey Font Cartridge

We have decided that this year, we are mostly doing homemade gifts for everyone, including the kids. Later, after I get some more done, I will show pics of the bed, table and chairs-etc... that Kevin has made for Emily's American Girl Doll  and the outfits I have made for her as well.  Have a Great day!

MCT Designer Challenge/Tag Challenge

Today I would like to share with you a tag I made to send to my Grandma--my daughter just had her baby on Halloween, and this is not only my first Grandbaby-but he is also my Grandmas first Great Great Grandbaby, and I know she is just waiting for a photo of him!
Over at My Creative Time they are having a Designer challenge gave out by Miss Ruthie, to make a tag that is at least 4 x 6, and to use MCT stamps or dies if you have them. So, I have used a sentiment and coordinating die from the Just Simply Live stamp/die set. The cute little elephant is from Create a Critter.
Thanks for stopping by-hope to be back soon!
