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!

I took this picture with my phone, sent the card off, and now I see it's a little blurry.  It is what it is though.

One of my granddaughters was the proud owner of this card I made for her birthday - yes, she's got that same type of humor that I have.  A little off balanced maybe? 

Anyway the image is from Newton's Nook and I laugh every time I see this.  I also used a Newton's Nook stencil and made the "waves".   Something different since it's not a Thanksgiving Day card and it's not a Christmas card.............It's a goat card!

Thanks for stopping by........I'm going to be missing in action for a couple of weeks but I'll be back. If you celebrate, I hope you have a nice Thanksgiving Day.

Hot Chihuahua

This was one of those stamp sets that I really didn't NEED, at all.......however I HAD to HAVE it!  I mean, come on.....look at that sweet like face and a body all squashed up in the taco.  Yes, we do eat a lot of tacos down this way - but minus the chihuahua inside them of course....and yes, we also soak them in hot sauce too.  Yummy!  The hotter the better and you still feel it the next day.  Not so yummy then.

Anyway, like I said, I didn't need that set of stamps from Hero Arts, but had to have it.  Too cute and will make a good birthday card for someone.

It's Penquin Time - 2 Crafty Critter Crazies

Just a quick reminder that we're still accepting critters at the 2 Crafty Critter Crazies Challenge!  We're about half way through the month so you still have plenty of time to enter. 

Our sponsor is Sparkle n Sprinkle who also allowed me to use this darling image for my card today.  It's called Dancing Penquins and was super simple to use since it's already pre-colored.  Gotta love those sometimes.  I added some Lawn Fawn snowflakes and that was about it.  The patterned paper is from  Paper Studio.

Thanks for stopping by...............and be sure and play along in our challenge this month.

Thank You

I don't even know what to say other than a big "THANK YOU"!  Every single card, comment, and note I received mean so much to me and I know I'll be reading them over and over again every chance I get.  Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers.

I'm doing ok and know I'll be fine - it's just going to take a little time.   Each and every one of you mean so much to me and I just don't have the words to say how I really feel.    I never realized when I started making cards and blogging so many years ago, that I'd gain so many friends right along with it.  Even though we've never met I still consider you my friends and always will.  Thank you for being here for me.  You'll never know how much I appreciate it.

I will be blogging again soon.  I think that making a card or two will help me keep my mind off other things and make me happy - the same way each one of you make me happy.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
