Final Tumbler For Christmas!

Happy Fri.!

Hello All!

Are you ready ???..... Well, if you are not, you have 1 more day left. I would like to welcome my new followers and a big thank you to those who have been following. I hope you are having a bright Pre-Christmas Eve, and keeping warm. It is very cold here this morning, down in the 20's last night. I hate going outside, but need to make a quick run to the grocery store you know, last minute stuff that I forgot. Hopefully we will see some sun to warm us up today.

I wanted to share with you my final tumbler I did for Christmas. This is for my neighbors husband who is an avid SD football fan.  A booger bear one lol, a little bit of work, but I love the way it turned out. Now that I have layed the ground work for it, making the next one should be a breeze,... (yeah right)!

My daughter,(Nisha) and I would like to wish everyone a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!! See you after the big day!

Hugz, xoxo

The Cuttlebug Spot D/T Goes ..SANTA!!

Happy Tues.!

Happy Holidays All!

A very happy Tuesday to everyone. I hope you are ready as can be for the big day. I wasn't going to be late with this post, since it is the last one before Christmas. This week over at TCBS, we were to create using Santa. Ho-Ho-Ho!, I used my favorite cut, reindeer's included to create my card. The white background is one of my favorite older CB folders Snowflakes, which I glittered with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. Santa is popped for a 3-D effect, and Santa Clause is cut with a shadow. Added a piece of ribbon, and stamped snowflakes and a message inside. Whoo-Hoo!, I think these will be my cards for this Christmas. I haven't made any yet, and these are quite easy, so you might want to give it a try. Be sure to check out TCBS this week, as I am sponsoring a Cricut Expression dust cover for a prize. Our fabulous D/T has some awesome creations waiting for your eyes to see, and play along with our challenge. I know everyone is busy with shopping for the big day, but you can enter one of those cards that you will be mailing out, lol. Hope to see your entry soon. Have a wonderful Christmas! Till next time!

Cuttlebug Spot D/T~ Late Posting!!

Happy Sat.

Hi~ya All!

Only 14 more days until Christmas! Welcome to my new followers and friends, I am so far behind. This is my Cuttlebug Spot D/T card from our last challenge. Use up your leftovers. My image which is from Peggy Loves Vintage was printed last December. I created some cards using her images, and had this one left over. Since our challenge was to use left overs, this one seem perfect for this time of the year. I hope you are having an awesome holiday season, and keeping warm. It is very cold here, and makes you want to stay indoors. Be sure to check out what my other D/T members have created for you eyes to feast on! Have a great weekend!

Latest Tumbler Craze/Christmas Gifts!

Happy Fri.!

Hello All,

It seems like it has been ages since I last posted an item. I hope everyone is being crafty and getting ready for Christmas. I can't believe we only have 3 weeks from tomorrow before it is here. Have you finished your shopping for all of your gifts? If not, you had better get busy. I made a few more tumblers which I think will be perfect gifts for the holiday. The first one is more for a male or female, and the second one is definitely female. They are a "Harley" and "Betty Boop"! My brother and nephew are Harley fans, and my sister likes Betty. I posted these this morning on FB and had a request from a friend to make her two. I might have a couple of these on my online store by the end of next week. Need to order more tumblers. You can e-mail me if you have a special request or want them personalized with a name.

If you see something you like, better grab it fast. It maybe a OOAK! If you have visited my store, it is quite empty for now, but you can always give a gift certificate if you are unsure of what someone might like.

Back to my tumblers, I hope to be adding some new ones by next week. Have a great weekend, catcha' soon!

DtsArt~#6 D/T Reindeer SVG!

Happy Fri!

Hi~ya Everyone!

I hope everyone is well, and doing some crafting. If you are not, then now would be an excellent time to start. It is chilly outside, and we are expecting rain over the weekend, so what a perfect time to play catch up. That is what I am planning to do, since I am so far behind on my crafting.

I wanted to share with you today, a quick little card I made using DtsArt's SVG file. This week we were to make a holiday item using the reindeer file. I cut out my file in layers using different color cardstock and foilboard, perfect for those left over pieces that we all have laying around. I then popped him with dimensionals, added a few peel offs and ribbon, wah-laa! A quick little Christmas card. Be sure to check out DtsArt's blog and see what my D/T sisters have created for you. Have a great crafting weekend!

DtsArt #5~Fall Take-Out Box!

Happy Wed.!

Hi Everyone,

Back again with an adorable svg cut from DtsArt design. How cute is this takeout box, it can be used in so many different ways. My choice was to use it as a Fall treat box, fill it with cookies, candy, or nuts for the season. The box size can be changed to use it for something smaller or larger. I cut it at the size of the pattern, but this would be awesome for baby shower treats, dinner mints, etc. Be sure to check out what my D/T sisters have created with it. And while you are at it, pick up your own svg file here, and get busy for the holidays. I used my MTC software along with cutting machine, to cut and score this box. Leaves are from the Cuttlebug. Have some fun with it. Catcha' soon!
