Kick Up Your Heels On Your Birthday!

Happy Birthday Kim!!!

I made this card for one of my "besties", Kim over at Oak Pond Creations. Today is her Birthday!!! Kim is a fellow crafter and I have managed to pull her to the dark side. Bwahahahaha! She has become a really good card crafter in a short period of time. I am not surprised because she is a talented writer, photographer and jewelry maker. I knew she had it in her the whole time, she just needed an "enabler" to help yank it out.
Kim, I hope you have a fabulous day! Enjoy every minute of it!! Love ya, Jen

SNOW in South Carolina!?!

We had snow here in South Carolina on and off the whole day!!! The ground was too wet so it didn't stick but it was really nice to watch the flurries. Almost a "white Christmas". My "Let It Snow" flag is such a joke here at my house because we NEVER get any snow but this year I guess the joke was on us. Lol! I had to snap a picture for the scrapbook.

Happy Birthday Sista!!!

I am soooo late in posting this card! My Sister's Birthday was on the 17th and with Christmas I totally forgot to send her a card for her Birthday. I know...I know...that is so slack! I did call her and talk to her ON her Birthday if that helps redeem me at all. She lives in Colorado which is way too far for my liking. We went and spent a week and a half with her and her family this summer and it has made me miss her even more. So.....
I LOVE you!

This is us back in July! See...just like the picture (but swap us around).

O Star of Wonder...

Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #43 - Teddy Bears

It's Tuesday and that means the start of another challenge over at Sassy Cheryl's. Judy is our hostess with the mostest again this week and she has picked Teddy Bears for our challenge. What's not to love about teddy bears!?! I know I have loved a few and I still have a couple that I will probably never get rid of. You can tell them anything! The image I chose is called "Going to See the Star". This is such a beautiful image! Cheryl has a great way of capturing childhood innocence.

Sassy Cheryl's is having a BIG end of the year Christmas sale!!

****30% through Dec. 24th***

We know everyone is busy this time of the year so Cheryl is going to run this challenge for two weeks to make sure you all have time to join in. So, pick out your favorite Sassy Teddy Bear and get back in the craft room! Can't wait to see what you create.

Glory to God in the Highest...

This is another beautiful Christmas image from Just Inklined called "Christmas Wreath Pinecones". I wanted this image to be the main focus of the card with the MS punch scalloped edges accenting it. It has so much detail that I really didn't think the card needed any extra embellishments.

I am really enjoying being a guest designer for Just Inklined this month. I will probably have one more post for them next week so keep an eye out for another one of their fabulous images.

I hope you are all almost to the point of relaxation this Holiday season and can take time to enjoy your friends and family. I finally finished my Christmas cards and that was a big relief! Now it's time to make Christmas cookies and get some last minute shopping done.

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me #6

Right now I am working on my Christmas cards and I can't show those so I will show you what I found on my desk yesterday afternoon when I got home from work. My cute little kitty cat Seven loves to make nests in the weirdest places, especially papers. I had all that "stuff" neatly arranged on the corner of my desk until she came in with her little paws and REARRANGED it for me. Silly cat! Isn't she adorable?
Okay, enough "Awww...". Go link up a pic of your desk with Cheryl (HERE) and let us get a peek at what you are working on this week. She doesn't mind if your desk is a "hot mess", she just wants to see your creative minds at work.

Sassy Cheryl's Show Me #5

It's snooping' time again at Sassy Cheryl's blog!
I don't have anything on my desk except "New goodies"! I am most excited about my Prisma Premier Colored Pencils!!! We had our "Inky Digits" Christmas party Tuesday and we had a great time. Yummy food and a fun gift swapping game. I came home with my new pencils...WooHoo!! I can't wait to use them, hoping I get hooked! I also have a set of stamps I borrowed from my friend Linda. I am thinking about using them for my Christmas cards. I have a stack of brand new gorgeous papers from "Aw Shucks" scrapbook store! They always have the most beautiful papers. I have some printed corset images I will be using on an up coming B-day card. I also have a bunch of "stuff" laying around (as usual). I really need to organize after the Holidays. Lol
Take a pic of your crafty space and up-load to Cheryls blog HERE and let us see what you have going on this week.

Show Me Thursday!!

It's "Show Me Thursday #4" over at Sassy Cheryl's and she wants to see what we all have been working on.

I know I have said my desk is a "hot mess" before but this time I believe something exploded while I wasn't looking! I hated to even take a picture of it. There is so much going on I wouldn't even know where to begin so I'm just gonna let you try to figure it out for yourself. Have fun snooping and get a good laugh because this afternoon it is getting cleaned up! Ugh!
Load up a picture of your creative space (it obviously doesn't have to be clean) and let us see what fun things you are working on.

***Twenty-three days until Christmas!***
