Hip Hip Hooray {Happy Birthday}

Hi crafters,

Shoo, it's been a busy month! This is the first weekend in 4 weeks that I haven't hosted a party or shower at my house.  I've had a blast but it has been nice to lounge around and craft this weekend.

This fun little hippo is from Birthday Bash. I took a black marker pen to highlight the cut marks. I gave this card to a special birthday girl and fellow crafter last weekend for her birthday. 

Thanks for stopping by,

Welcome Birdie

Hi Crafters,
Last weekend we threw a party for my sister. She is having her baby next month. She didn't want a big to do so we just the ladies in her immediate family come up for a fonDUE party.  We had lots of great cheese and chocolate and even did a few crafts.

 I also had been eying NewlyWoodward's pennant quilt and decided to attempt my first quilt. I even got to use the bias tape maker my husband got me for Christmas.
I learned a lot as I always do with the first project. I'm happy with the outcome!
I made a pumpkin hat with Fleece Fun's Pumpkin Pattern although the one I had is from a few years ago and the leaves were much smaller.

I used some jersey chevron material to make some festive hats for the little guy too.

I had a leftover cut from his baby book that I used for his card.  I embossed the background with the cuttlebug.

Thanks for stopping by,

{Happy Halloween} from Cut it Up!

Hi Crafters,

It's almost time for Halloween! I had so much fun with this challenge from Cut it Up!

I used Teresa Collin's Chic and Scary cartridge for my die cuts on this card.  I created a side step card using a great tutorial from Split Coast Stampers

I used several cuts for this card. The spider and web are both from Teresa Collin's Chic and Scary, the pumpkin is outlined in marker and is from Gypsy Wonderings.  Halloween is from Designer's Calendar.

Our fabulous sponsor for this challenge is Digital Delights! Make sure to link up your Halloween or Day of the Dead project with a die cut over at  Cut it Up!

Hi Crafters,

There is a new challenge over at the Cut it Up Challenges, this challenge was to include pink in your project for Breast Cancer Awareness month (and of course include a die cut).

I created a pink birthday project.  The happy and the large flower die cuts are from Walk in my Garden. I welded this to the birthday cut (from Designer Calendar).
