A New Nestie!

I ordered the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 11 and I love them! The shape is gorgeous and just as a warning to anyone who visits my blog, be prepared to see a lot more of it!

It seems January is going to be a busy month for card making, there are going to be a lot of birthdays and card giving occasions coming up. Case in point, here is the first card that's due in January and I've got to say, I think it's in my top 10 of all the cards I've ever made. Maybe because it's made with all my fav colors? Maybe because the flowers and embellishments are gorgeous? Maybe because I love every TGF Anya stamp there is? Maybe because I love Labels 11? I can't say for sure, but I do love it and I hope ______ likes it too!

Did you see the adorable little butterflies on the flowers? Yes, I am now the proud owner of the MS Classic Butterfly punch!

This card is for our cutie patootie niece who's getting her ears pierced tomorrow. All the girls in the family are meeting at the mall and making it a "girls day" to celebrate Macala's special day. In case you can't see it clearly, I put little gemstones for her (soon-to-be) new pierced earrings....too cute!

I can't believe this year is almost over, it seems to have flown by....but I think almost all of us can say that!

Francesco's 13th

It couldn't have worked out any better that (Coyote)Kim sent me some images from the GFS Skater set this week...THANK-YOU Kim, it was perfect timing! I woke up in the middle of the night last night and said to myself, "Skater Ian," knowing it was the perfect image to use for our nephew's card who just turned 13. Like I said, it was perfect timing because we celebrated his b/day this afternoon.

I used Copics to color the image, a Jenny Bowlin ticket and used some rub-ons for the number 13. I piereced, stapled, and tied also. He loved his card!

Dani's Wings

Here's a quick card I made for one of the girls at work, she's 19 and loves anything with wings. I used the same sketch as one of my previous cards because I think it a fab LO...easy and uber attractive! I used a 6x6 paper stack and cut the flowers out from one of the coordinating papers, then inked all the edges and punched some MS butterflies. I've asked for the small MS butterfly punch for Christmas and am hoping Santa and his elves have heard my request...the smaller butterflies would have been perfect on the bottom of the card, in the mean time I'll make do with what I have.

Talking about Santa, I need to decorate AND put up the I go...

Etched Block

We're back from our wonderful family cruise to the Bahamas, thanks to my in-laws for funding all 22 of us to go! Yes, you read that right...and yes, I am a lucky gal who has been blessed by marrying into a fabulous family! Here we all are...waiting at the airport to start our trip.

On to crafting....
here is an etched item that I made for the Christmas Shoebox Round on CMB, the block will be going to another "sister" in the round, who shall remain nameless due to the fact that we are Secret Sisters...which is a fun and interesting twist to the swap this round!

I'm not sure why the pictures are so small, but if you double click on the picture you should be able to get a close up.

The design was made on DS and I used the snowflakes from the Christmas Cheer cartridge....I really love how this block turned out, especially with the CS behind it. If you look through the two top left snowflakes you can see Santa in his sleigh in the sky.

So many projects, sooooooooooo little time!
