 Here's my Birthday design:

I created this fun card using a file from the silhouette store ID# 63015 for the card base and then I used the file "Happy Birthday Kids" from TCBJ. It was kind of nice to take break from Christmas crafts to create this birthday card for Emily! On this card I also used Cardz Tv stamp set "Just Saying" along with the sentiment "Celebrate" from a set I got from hobby lobby a few years ago so unfortunately I am not sure the name of. But I have learned that it may be time to invest in some Birthday stamp sets. I just love how this card turned out and I am super excited to be a part of this fabulous celebration! Happy Birthday Emily!!!!! Now onto a few pictures of the card I created for her.....

Christmas Challenge!! Cookies for Santa treat box!!!

Hello everyone!!! Here again with an awesome Too Cute by Jessica challenge and this week's challenge is CHRISTMAS!!! Yep my favorite time of year. I have been making treat bags like crazy this year for a little craft night I planned for some of my friends and me. I can't wait to give them to everyone. When I seen this cute file I knew it was a must to have and create a box with. This file is called "Little Lovelies Cookies for Santa".  I took the glass of milk from one of the images and just sized it down to fit the mouse I was creating. I used a sentiment from one of the new Cardz TV stamp sets "Merry Everything". I just love how this all turned out. I hope you all come over and join us on this challenge! You do NOT have to use a TCBJ file to enter so what is stopping you??? You have until Monday 28th to enter in your project! I look forward to seeing what everyone creates. Now onto to my project.........

Cardz TV 3D Challenge "Christmas Gift Bag/Box"

Hello everyone!!! I am so excited for this weeks new 3D challenge "Christmas Gift Bag/Box"!!! Ohhhhhhh my goodness is this box/bag not the cutest??? This Santa box came from the silhouette store ID# 52102. I used the new Christmas paper stack from Hobby Lobby along with some fun glitter paper from my stash. I was having a heck of a time trying to find a ribbon or string that I liked for it but then I remembered I had tons of embroidery thread. Yes it is a little wonky but hey I had to make sure you seen the super adorable sentiment  "Save Santa a trip....Be Naughty" tehehehehehe, this sentiment came from the Cardz TV stamp set "Naughty or Nice". Well now on to a pic of my bag I created.............

TCBJ / Cardz Tv Gingerbread Couple and House Treat Box!!!!

Hello everyone! Here today to share this box I created with a file from the Silhouette store (sorry don't have a name). I used two files from TCBJ to create this very fun box as well. The first file is TCBJ freebie right now which is "Gingerbread House" and the second file I used was "Cute Little Gingerbread Couple". I also used one of Mary's new Cardz Tv stamp sets "Merry Everything" this set is one of my absolute favorites and when I seen this sentiment I just knew it needed to be added to one of my projects. As you may be able to tell I should have had the handle facing the other way but hey I am human and make mistakes! I still love how it all turned out. For the box base I used a stack of paper from Michaels I believe (my sweet friend Julie gave me). I then used a Christmas stack from Hobby Lobby (paper studio) for the other layer of the box. This was such a blast to make and I can't wait to give this to someone special in my life. Also if you have not checked out the new Too Cute by Jessica blog you should head right over and check out how you have a chance to win a free file of your choice!!! Now on to a few pictures of my project........

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Don't forget to follow along with me on my crafting journey. I have so much more I want to share with you all!!!
