Some sketch challenges!

Wow, I am tired!  It has been a wonderful week celebrating Christ's birth and I feel a bit worn out, but it feels good!  It was our first Christmas with a child and my husband and I discovered it is sooo fun, but not as relaxing as former years.  :)  Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas!

On to some crafty is a card I made using this weeks sketch created by Kazan over at 2S4Y.  I picked up these snowflakes at Target and just loved how they made this card sparkle!

And here is a card I made using this weeks sketch over at CPS!  Once again I used this adorable stamp set from Kim Hughes!

A whole flock of presents!




I had a little gift exchange yesterday with three good friends!  These were the gifts I gave them.  I am always looking for a good, cute journal.  I am very particular about my journals.  I like them to be spiral (easier to write in because it can lay flat), lined (because I have major problems trying to write straight without lines), and CUTE of course!  I don't know if everyone else feels the way I do about journals, but I wanted to try and find a way to make my own journals and this is what I came up with!


I used a Five Star 5"x7" notebook, some Basic Grey Paper, the new Nestabilities Bird Die Cut from Spellbinders, some ribbon, and some sewing thread.  Maybe I will post a tutorial later on how I put these together!

And look at the cute things they gave me!  Davi gave me a new Hero Arts stamp set! I cannot wait to play with it!!!  Thanks Davi!

We seem to have had a bird theme going on this year cause Lorie made me this adorable little bird...

...and this cute little place for me to keep diapers and wipes (not sure what the official name is).  I have totally been wanting one of these since my little guy is almost one and I am getting a little sick of carrying my diaper bag everywhere.  Now I can throw this in my purse and leave the diaper bag in the car!  Thanks Lorie!

Hope you are all having a wonderful Christmas Eve!

A little present for a little girl...

So, here is the first of a couple Christmas presents that I made this year.  I figure I can show you this one because I already gave it to her.  :)  I made this little counting book for a dear friend of mine's daughter.  Isn't she adorable?  I think her favorite part was that her  picture was on the front.  I used a cardboard kids book I picked up for a $1 and used some old/retired papers and cardstock from CTMH along with my cricut.  It was a super easy, quick but cute gift!
