GOOD MORNING & welcome to another "Throwback Thursday Challenge!"
Here are the details for this challenge:
*** This challenge is to use a "FONT" cartridge, not a regular one, but a "FONT" cart! There are a LOTS of Font carts out there & they ALSO have some really cute images on them! Remember, you don't have to use the fonts, feel free to use the images on any Font cartridge that you own!

*** Link your project up to Mr. Linky, then leave a comment!

*** ONE project per person please!
Here is my CUTIE PATOOTIE card using my favorite "Hello Kitty Font" cartridge! I also used my "Stitched Oval Die", "Encouraging Quotes" stamp set AND the "Build a Banner Kit"! I used the houndstooth pattern from this kit to stamp on Hello Kitty's outfit!;)

Here is my video on how I designed this card in my Gypsy Girl!;)

Now on to my AWESOME design team!;)
Miss Cindy used "Game Night" stamp set!

Guest Designer Wednesday!

GOOD MORNING my creative friends! I am so happy to be back w/another "Guest Designer Wednesday"!  I would like you all to give a HUGE WARM WELCOME to Miss Trish w/Country Lady Designs! What a SWEET lady Miss Trish is AND not to mention "SUPER TALENTED"! This talented crafter always shares her AWESOME projects she makes using my stamps!
Isn't this card she made just PERFECT? I really need to learn how to make this type of card because I think they look like so much fun! Miss Trish is showcasing my FAVORITE "Go To" stamp set for the holidays coming up "Mixed Holiday Sentiments"! This stamp set's sentiments consist of Christmas, Halloween, Thanksgiving & it even has a New Year's sentiment! She used 3 of the Halloween sentiments which I LOVE the font that goes w/them! I made the font spooky & smudgey looking which I think goes so PERFECTLY w/Halloween! (My FAVORITE holiday)!


Please hop on over to Miss Trish's blog & tell her "Hi" for me & let her know how BEAUTIFUL her card turned out! Thank you soooo much for stopping by! I will see you all back here tomorrow for another Throwback Thursday challenge! Have a GREAT Wednesday! xoxo's

Monday Madness.....Imagine That!

Good morning my creative friends & welcome to another "Monday Madness.....Imagine That!"
For my sweet card today, I decided to "experiment" with my XL Label Die today! I wanted to see if I can make a card w/it AND it worked!!!;) For the layer on top, it is a pattern from the Imagine cartridge "Enjoy The Seasons"! I also got to use my newest "Fall Twine" from Trendy Twine! I LOVE IT!;) I also used my "Scallop & Stitched Circle Die" along w/"All Around Halloween" stamp set for the circle sentiment & that CUTE pumpikin!;)
Here is the back of my card! When you make this card w/your XL Label Die, make sure you fold your cardstock first, THEN run it through your cuttlebug/big shot~! I will do a video soon showcasing how this is done! I got to use my CUTE Sept. Bonus Stamp on the back!

Now onto my FABULOUS design team!




I hope you enjoyed all of our projects on this fine Monday morning! Also, I am soooo EXCITED because I was asked by the super sweet Miss Linda Kaiser to be a "Guest" today on her blog "The Paper Boutique"! Please hop on over there to see what I made! Here is a little "Sneak" of my project over there today!;) Please leave me a comment on her blog & let me know what you think of my project using my FAVORITE products!;)

I wanted to say "THANK YOU" for ALL of the sweet "Get Well Wishes" for my hubby! He had surgery on Friday & now we are on the recovery process! I will have my "Nurse" hat on for the next 4-6 weeks & he will be better in no time!;) Thanks again my creative friends & have a FABULOUS DAY!!! xoxo's

Guest Designer, Peachy Challenge Card & Stamp delivery update!

GOOD MORNING my Creative friends! I am BACK BABY!;) I was LOST  for 4 days with NO computer:( My computer "Gloria" crashed on me! I took her to get it fixed & when I brought her home, she "blue screened" AGAIN & then she was a "GoNER":'(  Unfortunately, I had to get a new one!  I would like to introduce you to "Max"....he promised me that he will take good care of me for a looooong time & I believe him!;) Okay, as you can see, I was a little behind on a few items! This will be "3" posts all-in-one! lol.....
First post!
 Peachy Keen Challenge #61!
PKS Guest Designer: Jane -http://polkadotgypsy.blogspot.com

Here is my take on the challenge! I used the "Four Legged Friends" cartridge for my puppy & paired it up w/Peachy Keens ADORABLE face stamp set "Happy-Go-Lucky Dog Face Asst"! If you are a furry friend lover, then this if the set for "YOU"!;) The sentiment is from my stamp set "Pain Pain Go Away"! The PRETTY twine is from Twendy Twine! This card will be mailed off to a "very special friend" of mine:) I hope she loves it as much as I do! You can fit this card into a business size envelope!

Second Post!
I would like to welcome back My Creative Time's "Guest Designer" this week "Miss Cathy Barwick" w/Crafting with Mimi!!! I can't get over how ADORABLE her little Halloween treat bags turned out! You MUST visit her blog to see the rest of them! She TOTALLY inspired me to make these myself!;) For her bag, she used "Mixed Holiday Sentiments" which, I have to say is my "GO TO" holiday stamp set! It has Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas & even a New Year's sentiment "ALL IN ONE" fantastic set! Cathy also used the coordinating "Fancy Frame & Die Set", which also goes w/LOTS of my stamp sets I have out already! It's just PERFECT!;)
Hop on over to Miss Cathy's blog to leave her some love AND to see the rest of her ADORABLE bags, you will NOT be disappointed my sweet friends!;)
