Witchy Woman

Raven hair, and Ruby lips
Sparks fly from her finger tips
Echoed voices in the night
She's a restless, spirit in an endless flight.

Ooh-hoo, witchy woman
See how high she flies
Ooh-hoo, witchy woman
Shes got the moon in her eyes.

Now that the song witchy woman(from the Eagles) is stuck in your head for the rest of the day these are her new shoes she will be trying out on halloween night.  Better leave some nice comments or she might fly fly and leave some nasty tricks for you on halloween.  Thanks for stopping in.  Happy Halloween

Christmas Spirit

Here are a few things that I've been working on over the last week and at the weekend crop.  The first card is a gatefold card that my friend Lorraine showed me how to do and thanks to her having something that matched my paper she let me have her colored stamp image to finish off my card. Isn't it great when you have friend to crop with and they let you have what you need to finish that certain image that you want.

The next card was done as a make and take at the crop using the Art Philosophy cart for the snowflake and a snowflake saying from one of the current stamps sets from Close to My Heart. It was inked in chocolate brown.
The next one was a card I made using one of the angel company stamps, and a CTMH stamp set for the wording.  I can see this window opening being used for others, sorry to see The Angel company leave us as they had some real cute stamps.

The next one was done using Doodle charms for the snow globe and a Stampin Up set called Warmest of Wishes(Hostess) and some of the cards from Michaels that have the pre-printed fronts.

Well thanks for stopping by hope you enjoyed.  Leave alittle love if you liked my cards.  Thanks see ya next time.

Scrapbook Easel

This is my newest toy and let me tell you I'm loving it.  The Scrapbook Easel makes things more comfortable when you are scrapping, and the magnets hold things into place so you can move them around on your board, it also helps you from loosing pieces and after last weekends crop and cutting several of the same little tiny piece I might have found the answer to my prayers.  LOL  Takes the pressure off your neck from long crops and it has a magnetic ruler for lining things up.  SO while trying this out and rearrangeing some things in my room I found some page kits that I have had for several years and had not put them together yet this one is from the Time Flies page kits. 
I also managed to make a few cards today getting in the mood for some cooler weather and getting in that christmas spirit.  Not your traditional colors.

Oh No! Not Gingerbread time

I can not take credit for this card however I did see it in the new cricut Holiday book and thought it was so adorable. On page 37 card was inspired by Michelle Criswell at  Hope she doesn't mind but this just made me laugh when I saw it so here is my version of this card.  I used Jolly Holidays, and some stampin up punches along with the sentiment from the SU set embrace life, card background was out of a predesigned set from Michaels, quick and easy card to put to gether.

Lattice Card

I decided to make a lattice card. I had seen a tutorial over on youtube by vadeler on doing lattice cards with spellbinder dies.  I used elegant edges for the center cutout on the front of the card, along with Stampin Up  bird punch , some quilling papers as they are the perfect size for weaving. And the Happy Birthday image is from a CTMH stamp.  I really like the look of these cards.  Thanks for looking.

Accordian card

This was a card that I saw done on the cricut board, there is a tutorial done over at  So Ithought I would try one, however my first one didn't turn out right so we started over.  I tried alittle somethiing different with mine since the ovening was gonna be small I used the Tim Holz flower die and cut 3 strips out.  I trimmed one of the strips by taking off the scallopped edge , I then taped all three peices together and folded since it already had the crease line in it.  Used my gypsy to cut out the shape on the front of card put the accordian behind that and added to the front of a card, added some ribbon and flowers.  On the inside I stamped Happy Birthday.
