It's another Cardztv Go To Galz Challenge!

One of my favorite things to do
is to make treats!  I know most of
the time when we think of treats, we think
food, but it also means gift giving and that
is what I've made today.

I manage a medical office with almost 40 
employees and searching for something every
year to give is a challenge.  This year I have
been purchasing hand sanitizers all year so I would
have enough to give to my staff.

The challenge is when you "dress" them
up a bit.  Ruthie over at 
www.septemberninth.blogspot.com
has some FREE SVG files and this holder
is one of them.  Hop over to Ruthie's blog and
say hi and tell her I sent her!  I've met the 
most loving and giving people through crafting
and Ruthie is one of them.  Such a sweet
stay at home mom who loves to craft AND
she's good at it.

Well, here's my treat!


Ruthies files is for the box.

When you need MANY items, you just
can't beat the Print and Cut feature of the
Cameo!  All of these images came from
the Silhouette store and didn't they
turn out cute?

The tag was hand cut and I used one of
my favorite Christmas stamp sets from
Cardztv Stamps - TINY TIDINGS!


SIDE VIEW!


JUST A PEAK AT THE REST OF THE DESIGNS!

Check out my video so you can see HOW
to put this cute treat together.



Okay, now it's your turn!
This challenge starts on
November 28 and runs
for two weeks.  I know you are in the
craft room having fun, so join in on the challenge.

Don't forget to stop over at Ruthies Blog and say hello.

Happy Christmas Crafting!

MCT Designer Challenge

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to make tags!
The challenge over at My Creative Time was to do
just that and boy did I have fun.

I have used ALL of MCT products on this tag
right down to the tag die.


Love this entire tag!  The paper was 
white until I used the 
JUST FOR YOU stamp set and 
made my own background paper.
Don't you love it?

I count 9 MCT products on this tag.
Can you find them?

Happy Crafting!

TSQ Royal Color Challenge

Well the Queen has another great
color challenge for us!


I had to do a little thinking
on this one!

Here's what I came up with.


I LOVE My Creative Time Dies!

The trifold card is made entirely with her dies.
The pumpkin is actually an "egg" die.  Love, love, love it!
The stem is one of the banner dies.
The entire card is also her tri fold card die, but
I turned it on the side and made it sideways.


You can see that I use the card die twice so I 
could have a contrasting paper on both ends
I used a mat from my Silhouette for the 
center to stamp my sentiment.

My sentiments come from Cardztv Stamp set
"Thankful for you".

Of course I had to finish with a few 
sequins!  I love how this turned out and
I hope you do too!  Now it's time for you
to create!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cardztv Go To Galz Challenge - THANKFUL!

WELCOME to the Cardztv
Go To Galz Challenge THANKFUL!

I read something on Facebook the other day
and I had to repost on my timeline.  It said
"stop focusing on how stressed you are,
and remember how blessed you are".

I want to develop that mantra - how about you?
Mary's challenge of thankful fits right in
with my plan.

We just had one of our Thanksgiving last Sunday
and I made the centerpiece you see below.
I also added a video of how you can
recreate this simple candle for not only
Thanksgiving but for ANY holiday or special
occasion.

I used Cardztv THANKFUL FOR YOU stamp
set and stamped images on tissue paper
and applied to the candle with heat.
Check out the video for tips.



Here's the video:




Here's the finished product on my table before dinner.


Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

I'm so thankful for you and your
interest in my craft!

Now it's your turn!
You have until noon EST, Thursday, November 14th
