Twinkle Twinkle little Star!

Todays card share is a really fun card that could be used for many occasions. I received this image in an image swap and just loved it. It's called Luna Star from Faerie Song Stamps. I think I might have to get me some of these because they are just darling whimsical images.
I colored the image using my colored pencils,  and nibs dipped in baby oil.
The teal base paper is G45 Once upon a springtime. The multi-color strip paper is DCWV Nana's Nursery. I pulled out some of my translucent mulberry paper for a subtle triangle as per the sketch. The sentiment is a sticker from the stash as well as the tiny stars. I put lots of stickles to give the card that extra twinkle but it's hard to see in the photo.

This card follows these Challenges:

My quick solution for organizing my spellbinders

If you are not aware I have a very small area for which I'm to store my growing craft supplies. I previously stored my spellbinders loosely on my shelf. But I now keep them in this little book I made so I'm never worried if I'm missing one or going to lose one. I learned how to create this book from Yoliebean during the YYP Home for the Holidays Crop. Recording Here!
This is only a temporary fix till I built on this summer and have a True Craft Cave.

 The black backing is the cheap magnetic printer sheets found at Walmart business section.
I just cut to size and ATG'd to the packaging.

 In the below picture you can see I still have room to expand my collection.

This is just one of the many projects I have completed this past month and never found the time to blog about it. It seems I'm always on the computer but never seem to get anything done. Does anyone else feel that way. Now I have to tackle the ever growing Blog reader posts. That's another thing I seem to have hard keeping up with this busy time of year.

It's Turtle Time!

Every year we have a tradition in our family to make Homemade turtles using my husbands grandmother's recipe. This year we decided to give a few away to our close friends. Well in that decision I felt I had to make a homemade box to hold them. So I sat down at my craft table and started to create a custom box. I'm sure it would have been easy to search on-line and find a template but they are so easy once you understand the base principals. This is what I came up with. . . . . 

The two pieces seperate.......

Yummy turtles inside.......

Special Sensational Saturday!

Hello and Welcome to my Card share for Sensational Saturday with Sugar Creek Hollow! Today's a Special Sensational Saturday as It's my Birthday! The challenge for this week was a Color Challenge. With my 2 favorite colors none the less! RED and White! 

For my Card I chose to use the Primitive Sheep digital image layered on red cardstock. I accented with some glittered polka-dot paper. The heart is colored with my SU marker and Red glitter stickles to match the paper. Top corner roses are Wild Orchid Craft and the Martha Stewart branch punch. Bottom accent is some spellbinder snowflakes colored in Tim Holtz barn door and fired brick distress ink then clear embossed. They are simply held together with a felt covered brad. I stitched some crochet lace into a flower and added a decorative beaded pin. I layered on top of some wild orchid leaves colored with Santa Baby and Red Velvet Glimmer mist. The Sentiment was stamped onto some grosgrain ribbon layered over white lace. Super Easy to make but Super Fabulous outcome!

Just some Fun Cards!

Happy Thursday! Getting time to craft this week has been tough. I didn't make anything Super spectacular but I did sit down on Tues. Night and create two really quick and easy cards. I'm just now getting a chance to put the post up. For my images I used some of the Heartwarming vintage cuts from Crafty secrets. The only hard part was trying to pick which image I wanted to use. They are all so great! Now that the Christmas Traditions Kits have shipped I hope I can get back to more FUN stuff. I seen a great mini designed around cards I want to give a try. Maybe Today would be a good day to start.

Sensational Saturday with Sugar Creek Hollow

Welcome back to another Sugar Creek Hollow Sensational Saturday. This week the challenge was a Sketch! I just adore sketches because when things get busy like this week has been it's the perfect starting point. I chose to use the baby Jesus image this week once again. When you have an image this beautiful it's hard not to use it time and time again. The pictures I took really do not do this card justice.

For the front of the card I chose to print the Scruffy Manger Digi on MME Life Stories paper and cut the center out as my looking-glass for the image inside. I paper pieced some pattern papers for the manger base to give it more depth. The corner accents were some very old K&Co die-cuts I had in my stash. I loaded this card up with some Wild Orchid Craft pearls to accent the ribbon threaded lace. The Adore oval was a leather sticker I had in my stash. After looking at the picture I should have inked the edges with a black ink to tie it in better with the card.
Inside of card: I still want to add more to it just not sure what yet! I ran out of time for crafting for the day and wanted to post my card.
Hope you enjoyed looking at my card. Please stop by the Sugar Creek Hollow Blog and check out the other DT cards for this weeks challenge there is such amazing talent to be seen.
