Bride of Frankie

Okay so I can't stop making these. This is my doorprize for Thursday nights Card Therapy. Isn't she a beaut!

Speghetti for supper

Okay, so we had speghetti for supper a couple if nights ago, and if you notice in the picture, yeah, the bib AND the plate is missing! Gotta love tomato products............she does and that is what matters.

Scallop Flower Punch Daiseys

I used the Scallop Flower Punch and cut each one in half then snipped in just to make petals. Then I used the large oval punch, cut in half and used that for the middle of the daisey.

Christmas Treat Cover swap

I am in a swap where I made covers for Christmas treat giving. These are what I came up with. I used the Hostess Paper Pack for the little baskets and the Holiday Treasures DSP for the Hersheys miniuature pull cover. I used the Loads of Love set (tree and tag saying) on the basket. I used the set Winter Post from the Mini Catalog and the Designer label Punch for the front of the pull cover.

Square Scallop Bats For You!

I made these little bats by punching with the Square Scallop Punch a piece of black cardstock, folded over once, snipped "in" towards the point, folded back "the head", then pulled the ears forward. I just drew on the eyes with our White Signo Gel Pen but you could use the booglie eyes from the craft store.

Also used the Batty For You jumbo wheel, Only ORange Cardstock and Orange Striped ribbon.

St. Louis Cardinals Baseball Game

We had an opportunity to get Cardinals tickets from a friend for real cheap, so I have always wanted to take my dad to one since he is a big fan and has never been to one. We took our 3rd daughter Sarah as well and she had a blast! I being a lifelong fan, FINALLY got to see Albert Pujols hit a homerun. In fact there were 3 homeruns in that game from St. Louis players! They won 8-5 agains the Cinn. Reds.

Top Note Owl Candy topper

Okay, so this die has SO MUCH potential other than cardmaking and scrapbooking. Probably my favorite so far by a landslide.

More Halloween Fun

I made the broomstick paper bag decoration from the Fall/Winter Stampin' Up! catalog. It is originally a treat bag, so the treats will go into the inner bag (there are two bags one inside the other). And I just found a stick in the yard and made the handle. Easy peasy to make.

Halloween Fun

I have finally gotten my Top Note Die for my BigShot and decided to make some cute Frankenstein bag/boxes.

Trio Flower Punch Card

I had this as a punch box kit for a year and forgot that it had a wonderful punch in it. I was playing with different textures and colors and this is what I came up with.

Suspension Card

I had never made one these cards before, but a little dental floss and a few stamps and punches and it is easy as pie.

Mackenzie and Tayler

I took this picture on the 26th of September at VanBuren's Homecoming festivities. Mackenzie is in remission and back at school other than finishing radiation for 14 days.
It was a hot day for September.

Future Stampers of America

Jenna likes to sit at the table with me and play with all of my stuff while I am working on my latest creations. She has leaned alot, obviously.

Fantasy Box

Playing around with different versions of the Fantasy Box we made for our September stamp camp.
