Here Today......Gone Tomorrow

This was left over from Christmas but thought it'd be appropriate for today.  Here today....and gone tomorrow just like  Christmas was here and now it's gone for a while.  I'm going to be the same way though.  Here today and gone tomorrow - and won't be back for a while now.  I realize I've just been hit and miss on here but it's going to continue for a while longer I'm afraid

I'll be moving next month and so everything is being boxed up.  The stamp room (my happy place) is about 1/16 done.  Yes, you read that right.  I can't seem to get going on the packing of that room but I'm trying.  Seems I get a couple of boxes packed up and it doesn't even look like I've done anything.  Then I'll start packing there and remember something else I need to do in the other part of the house, so go back there and start on something else.  I get sidetracked really easy I guess.  I'll also start to pack something and them realize I hadn't used that stamp in forever or something like that.  Surely I don't have too much stuff!!! 

Anyway, I'll leave you with this card for now.  If I can get everything going like I'd like to do I'll be back around the end of March or maybe April.

Thanks for stopping by..............and I'll eventually be back..............

Critter Stack - 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

First of all........Happy New Year to everyone.  Hope it's a good one for you.

We're starting the new year off just right with another challenge from 2 Crafty Critter Crazies.  Our wonderful sponsor this month is Bugaboo.  Everyone loves their images!  Be sure and enter our challenge this month for a chance to win a fabulous prize package from them too.  All you need to have is some type of critter on your card or project. 

I have several critters on my card today.  In fact, it's a stack of critters (called Farm Critter Stack from Bugaboo)  I used some barn wood type red paper for the background, sponged in a few clouds, added the strip of black and white stripe paper, and then my image framed out with the wonky stitching die.  As an afterthought I added the fence - cutting out several and stacking them for dimension.

Thanks for stopping by and head on over to 2 Crafty Critter Crazies to enter.

This Sums it Up

What more can I say.........................Some years just aren't so great I guess. 
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
I'll see everyone back here on January 1st.

The Big Guy

Here's the Big Guy for you (My Favorite Things)!  Like it or Not Christmas is almost here.

Sorry I haven't been around to your blog lately.  No excuse - that's just the way it is sometime.

I'll be back on Friday with what I think probably sums it all up.  Could it be a Fun Friday?!
Thanks for stopping by...........

La La Llama

I have a good friend that used to raise alpacas and every time I see this llama I want to send her a card.  This was her Christmas card for the year.  Very clean and simple but I know she'll like it because I think it's going to remind her of the alpacas. 

This is short and sweet today which is always a good thing when you don't feel like reading a bunch of bull.

Tagging Along

A word to the wise........don't ever leave anything sitting out where one of your unnamed children may see it because when they leave the house whatever you left out is going to be missing.  And then you'll get a phone call a day or so later from that unnamed child that starts out something like this......"mom, do you think you could make about 20 more of those cute little tags and send them to me? Like tomorrow?"    You just gotta love the unnamed child! (But the answer was a resounding NO)   I also couldn't get a better picture of them because that certain unnamed child has them now. 

Anyway, all the images on these were done with a set of stamps from  Jane's Doodles.  Cute images and they were the perfect size for the tags.  The polka dot trees were cut with a Newton's Nook die.  That about takes care of it.

Plumping Up - 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

Thanksgiving is over with and this is what's left - leftovers!  Sadly, no one wanted a skinny turkey this year.  He'd really been trying to pump iron and plump up but it never happened so he goes back to pasture until next year.  By then he'll probably be so tough no one could even chew him!  Instant jerky I guess.

Time for another fun challenge at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies!  Come on over and enter your card or project because we're being sponsored by none other than QKR Stampede and they have a wonderful prize package for the challenge winner.  All you have to do is have a critter on your project.  We love seeing all of them too!

I used the skinny turkey from QKR Stampede- and yes, he's nothing but skin and bones.  A stencil was used for the background, a bit of patterned paper on Kraft, and that about takes care of it.  

Thanks for stopping by.........and hop on over to 2 Crafty Critter Crazies to enter.  You have all month long!
