Super Simple!

I made a set of these cards in no time at all. The new "Holiday Tag Collection" from PTI works great for something like this. There are so many different styles of tags to choose from. I am so glad I bought this set!

A Little Bit Longer...

I am not sure if many of you know that Nick Jonas of the Jonas Brothers has Type 1 diabetes like my Jillian. We were listening to their new CD today...well everyday, but I have never paid attention to the words before. The last song on the CD is titled "A Little Bit Longer" I caught the last verse and had to rewind to listen to the whole song. Needless to say I was in tears after...here are the lyrics. Just sharing a reflection of Nick's struggles, as well as all other afflicted, with Juvenile diabetes. Thanks Nick.

A Little Bit Longer

Got the news today
Doctor said I had to stay
A little bit longer
And I'll be fine
When I thought it'd all been done
When I thought it'd all been said
A little bit longer
And I'll be fine

But you don't know what you got
'Till it's gone
And you don't know what it's like
To feel so low
Everytime you smile or laugh you glow
You don't even know
No no
You don't even know

All this time goes by
Still no reason why
A little bit longer
And I'll be fine
Waitin' on a cure
But none of them are sure
A little bit longer
And I'll be fine

Chorus x2

So I wait 'till kingdom come
All the highs and lows are gone
A little bit longer
And I'll be fine
I'll be

Another BIG GAME!!

Yes I'm talking Buckeyes again!! There's a big game this weekend with Penn State. While I appreciate JoePa's vivaciousness at the age of 80 something...He doesn't need another Big Ten Championship, or National Title!! HA!

At my retreat this past August, Pine taught us how to solder. I had already purchased all the need supplies from Ellen, but had never used them...or tried once, and that project LOOK HORRIBLE!! Well I tried again after my lessons, and I have to say...I AM GETTING BETTER!!! I found this OSU paper at my LSS. This is the only design on this paper so image my surprise when I found that it fit the 1" square punch!!! There must be over 200 of these images on this sheet of 12x12!! I tore apart a Buckeye bracelet for the bead at the bottom. I suppose I could have made more, but that would have taken too long!! I love the way they turned out!!

More than just Bandaids

I've had these tins FOREVER!! Gift cards fit perfect. I also figured, similar to the purses, that packs of gum, chap stick, nail polish etc...could fit inside. I had some left over scraps from the purses I made, and they fit perfectly. I am quickly falling in love with this Lockhart image, available from Ellen Hutson LLC. You can find the link on my sidebar. Enjoy!

Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers...

Is that how that tongue twister goes? I wonder if that one was written by a stamper? Just a quick little card I whipped up a few weeks ago for my niece. I'm on a PTI kick lately!! Matter of fact...I just unpacked a new box with this months releases!! WOO HOO!!

Velvet Branches

I am really loving Heather's Rustic Branches Set. I can't wait to get my hands on this months release! This is another card using her first set. I had so friends send me multiple colors of velvet ric rac...a long time ago. I have been hoarding that stuff!! It is gorgeous! This green color is a perfect match for SU's new Kiwi Kiss. I may have to purchase more!! Hope you enjoy!

Stationary box Purses

So I am in super stamp mode. I have a craft show this weekend, that I THOUGHT was next weekend!! I even took a vacation day next week to prepare...but NO it is this Saturday! Crud! Needless to say Saturday is going to be busy. I have to go to the show all day, and then to work all night. Nothing a little caffeine won't fix! LOL!

Anyway, these are little Stationary Box Purses that Nichole Heady shared on her blog. They are so simple to do. For these I used different papers by Basic Grey, along with Lockhart and PTI stamps. I was so excited to find that inchies will fit in the center of the JustRite Stamper circle!! Hmmm...that gets me thinking! I figured these could be used for gift cards, lipstick, nail polish, etc...anything girly!

What season is it anyway?!?!

So I can't decide if it is time for Halloween or Christmas! I usually just make whatever, with no rhyme or reason. LOL! Today it is Halloween! This little kitty is from an old CTMH set. I don't even know if it is still available. There are four stamps in this set. A ghost, an angel, a witch and a pumpkin. They are so fun and easy to color. Enjoy!

Joy and Happiness

I loved this PTI set Snowflake Serenade as soon as I saw it. It fascinates me how no two are ever alike. As I was "patiently" waiting for Pine's new Rustic Snowflake set to arrive, I made this card with a Piney influence. I challenge you to find something Heather made that does not utilize white pigment ink. Like identical snowflakes, I'd bet it doesn't exist. (OK I found a few...but not many!) I can't wait for Rustic Snowflakes to get here!
