For this card I used a Close to My Heart set, some Basic Gray papers, and wadhi tape to follow a sketch. This card will be sent to a persin in my swap group. This swap was to follow a given sketch from one of the members. Love riding my mountain bike, so I was glad for a chance to create a card that reflected that.

I participated in a swap with an online group and the theme was to make a card based on anything that starts with the letter A. I signed up for it thinking this woukd be easy but it turned out to be a challenge. I finally decided to break out sime Tweety Jill stamps and this is what I came up with.

I made a card using the Tim Holtz Crazy Cats set. I found this mask in a bunch of neglected Judith stamps. Made the word bubble using a set feom Stampin'Up! called Just Sayin' minus the wirds and added a stamp from Great Impressions. I am happy with how it came out even if it did take four days to come together. Watcha think?

While cleaning off my sadly neglected crafting desk, I ran across some items I had purchased at a StampFest event in Orlando last year. Yes, I never stopped collecting new toys! I pulled together a few other scraps that were laying around on the table and came up with this quick, very simple card. I am thinking I see pattern of pink butterflies in my work lately. Maybe it's a promise of spring being on the way? Surely hope so!!

There was so much more, but I really wanted to share this card. It is one of a couple I made this weekend. I haven't spent much time in my stamping room and it took a while to come up with the first card, but this one seemed to come together pretty easily. I saw the idea of using a key for the body of a butterfly while wasting time on Pinterest and just had to try it. I think it came out pretty well!

I wanted to share a couple of the projects I have been working on over Christmas break. The instructions for the Santa ornaments above were found on Pinterest and I just knew Kyli would love making these. We made six of them and she gave them to the family as Christmas presents. She was so proud to give them out! They were made with a simple salt dough and baked. Then they were painted up and embellished. Lots of fun to make!
The next project got started when I received a pair of fingerless gloves that were knitted by a friend in New Hampshire. Other people saw them and wanted to know if I had made them. That got me thinking that surely there were crochet patterns for them. Obviously, these are not fingerless gloves. While I was making the crocheted version, Kyli decided she wanted some, too. I dug out some old crochet magazines I had kept for particular "someday" projects and we found the instruction to make these adorable snowman hat/mitten/scarf sets. Kyli picked her colors and became a slave driver for me to get them done. Made hers the day before Christmas Eve while she was staying with us. They actually work up pretty quickly and my rusty crochet skills came back to me in a short time.
I hope you have had a wonderful Christmas season with your families. Wishing you a blessed New Year as well!!
