Another rak to give....

I saw this great tutorial on Lysa's blog, and thought that it would make a great way to give out a rak, so this is my take on it.  I made it a little wider because of what I was putting in it.  Hope the recipient like's it!

I used CS from SU, and the gift stamp was from my sister, the cute sentiment is a Dandelion Stamp.

I will be posting a rak on my next post that I recieved in the mail yesterday, I then decided to "pay it forward" so I created some earrings with it, and sent out about 8 pairs in the mail last night to some friends....I'll post that tomorrow, because hopefully they should get it in their mail today or tomorrow.
Have a great day!

My OCS partner this month was the Sweet Lorna, of Stickernut Stamps.  She not only sent me this Pretty & Sassy card, she also included some Tinkerbell goodies!!  Thanks so much Lorna & for the sweet email.

This next RAK is from my GF Justine, she gave me this Beautiful Paper clip Holder on Thursday.  I told her to post to her blog!  She made one to follow mine & jump on to other local crafters, but she needs to start posting her pretty Creations...I like the way she not only used the nesties, but ran it throught the snowflake embossing folder. 

The Following is pictures of our Holiday Tea I was invited to  today, these are my scrapbooking girls...not card ones or bloggers yet!   LOL    This was the beautiful set up.

Creating w/ friends...

I got to share my BIA with a couple of friends last night & we created a few projects....this is my creations that I had made to show them...I just helped them make theirs.....had too much fun, I couldn't get up this morning!!  Alicia you up yet?  LOL

I made 2 of these sets for my hubby's girls in his office.

This one is for one of his co-workers who is a big "Edward" fan!  This is a Himawari Baby image, so cute yeah?

My daughter is in a Twilight gift swap from a blog that she follows....so I made these 2 for her to give out.

I made this for a very Dear friend that lost her son in Iraq.  He was killed by a sniper....she can always have him close at hand, especially when she uses this book mark, she loves to read romance books, the two of us swap books all the time!!  Love you Adele.

Hope you are all having a great week so far, mine has been a good one , just need to go to bed early tonight!!

Hello Kitty & a Rak

I had to make baby shower favor tags & a matching card using Hello Kitty, this is what I did.  As always used my Nesties & cuttlebug to create my scalloped circles.  All CS from SU.  Had to add buttons!!

These are the tags that were to be put on the party favors.  The back of each tag had a sentiment that I printed from my Print Shop program.

I got this very cute Halloween gift from Michelle.  She is so Talented!!  Check out her blog, she has the cutest creations.

Hope you all had a wonderful Veterans Day Holiday!  I started my Christmas shopping.....LOL
Hubby finished the flooring.....now to start decorating for the Holidays.

Wedding cards...

A friend asked me to make 2 wedding cards, one is red & champagne color, and another in red ,black & gold & an oriental one...this is what I did...

I decided it was time to ink up some of my Stampin Up stamps....I used this image from my Kanji set, red & black CS, then embossed the gold CS with my cuttlebug.

Again this is another SU set called Life's Special Moments..I used creamy caramel & red CS, also used my embossing folder, added some pearls & here you go.....a 5x7 card.

Made these cards a few weeks ago, I have lost my mojo & did not create in the past week!!  Too many other things going on right now, with the house (flooring), organizing & cleaning out before the Holidays, and of course farming on Facebook!!  LOL
Hope you are all having a great weekend.

Lot's to share......

Got this wonderful RAK from my dear freind Kris.  She knows I love Tinkerbell!!  Thanks so much Kris.

This next beautiful creation is from Ilissa, she was my partner for Teri's OCS this month.  Look at all these pretty creations!!

I got this sweet rak from Joy, she has a tutorial on her blog for this neat box.  I had to come home from her house & try one right away!!  I do not have the small scallop punch, so I used my 1 inch one instead....see my "case" of this below.  Thanks so much Joy!

My take on Joy's cute box!!  I used Himawari Baby images to dress it up.

Hope you are all having a great week!  It is almost over...have a nice weekend & a Very Happy & Safe Halloween!
