Hi all....I hope you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving! We didn't do too much, as we had just gotten back home from Alabama visiting my Grandma. It was sure a blessing to be able to visit and spend some time with her!!
For CARDZTV this week, the challenge is to make three small tags....

I used this cute little puppy (Create a critter cart) and santa hat (Pooh and Friends cart) cut out with my Explore. My sentiment is from CARDZTV and is perfect-it is from 
"Christmas Critter Captions" 
stamp set.

Hope you will all stop by the CARDZTV BLOG and check out Mary's awesome videos, and our challenge....the DT have made lots of tags to get you inspired!!
Have a great weekend!

On a side note, I have been having a ton of fun with other files from THE CUTTING CAFE!! I participated in a "Night Of Shopping" get together, and had made up several items to sell...I think they turned out so cute, so I thought I'd share a few photos with you.....

I added a small kit of emergency sewing supplies to them--so cute!!

These are all perfect for Teacher gifts, or a little something to leave the mail carrier--or even for a Secret Santa gift! I sure had fun with them!!
Have a great day!

Gift card Holders with CardzTV

Are you all getting yucky weather too? I am so not ready for winter driving!! Each year I like winter driving less and less!!
Well, enough about the weather-can't change it, so guess I may as well stop complaining about it, huh?!  So, I know I have already said this before, but I LOVE my Explore---and Design Space--what a great combo. I made this gift card holder on my Explore, and therefore I am not even sure which carts these items are off of....I will try to watch that closer the next time!

Here is the gift card attached to the pull out.

I can tell you that for my sentiment I used CARDZTV stamp set "More Critter Captions", which you can find HERE. Isn't that such a fun stamp set!!

Don't forget to go on over to the CARDZTV blog to see all the DT's awesome creations!
Have a great weekend everyone!
