I am attempting to maintain a blog filled with random bits from my life and family as well as my adventures in crafting.

Cut It Up! - Shaker Cards

Happy Friday!

I had an interesting morning to say the least...
I will spare you the details,
but my big toe is numb from a small procedure
and my body had a slight reaction to the shots that numbed it up...
After nausea, fainting, and some time in the bathroom
I am feeling like a complete spazz!!!
But my toe is better...Yay!

ANYWHO...today is the start of another challenge over at
Cut It Up

Shaker Cards!

Our Sponsor:
Any 3 Sets of Your Choice

My Project:
The Cutting Cafe was generous enough to
send the Design Team different files for
shaker cards.
I loved this pumpkin one and wanted to try it out.
Keep in mind that I do not have an SVG cutting machine,
so this was put together solely by fussy cutting...crazy huh!?!?
Even with the fussy cutting it was a sinch to do,
so you should definitely give it a go.
The paper I used for the inside is from DCWV
and the filler is a combo of sequins and beads.
I added some baker's twine and VWALLAH...
Done and Done...

The Inside... 
I also used this sentiment from The Cutting Cafe
for the inside of the card.
My paper is from my scrap stash,
I can't remember what paper pad it came from.
I did ink around all the edges of my card
with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress Ink.

I hope you will join us in this Shaker Card challenge,
they are such fun cards to make.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!

Cut It Up! Breast Cancer Awareness

Happy Friday!!!

Oh my goodness, can I just list all that is going on in my life right now?
It would take up too much of my blog, so I will spare you.

Anyway, a new challenge has started over at Cut It Up!!!
Cut It Up

Our Challenge is:

Breast Cancer Awareness.

Our Sponsor:
CAS-ual Fridays Stamps
$15 Prize

My Project:
Unfortunately, I was not able to use the awesome ribbon
die cut from our sponsor,
instead I pulled out my Pink Journey cartridge
and cut out this pretty pink ribbon.
I also used Mini Monograms to cut the
scallop circle and then I cut that in half to use as
added embellishment.

The background paper is from Echo Park.
I love the printed message on the paper and
thought it was perfect for this card.

I hope you will join us over at Cut It Up
for this challenge.

Thanks for checkin' in!!!
