Crazy for Cocoa

Happy Monday! Thank you for all the well wishes last week when I was feeling under the weather. I am feeling much better this week. Unfortunately, it seems like my daughter may have caught it. She stayed home from school today. I hope she is able to kick it quickly.

I saw that there is a new challenge blog dedicated to Sweet N Sassy's Cocoa the mouse. He is a favorite at our house. My daughter just loves him. In fact she got a stuffed animal mouse as a gift and named it Cocoa. Given all that, how could I not make a card for the first challenge? DD was going to make a card too but the lure of the snow outside was stronger than idea of making cards with mom inside. Since she was outside and didn't see this card, I am going to give it to her for Christmas.



Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great week!

Supplies:

  • Stamps: Sweet Cocoa from Sweet N Sassy Stamps, Baby It's Cold Outside from My Favorite Things, Just the Ticket from PaperTrey
  • Papers: Neenah Crest solar white CS, Stampin' Up Real Red CS, October Afternoon Very Merry DP
  • Inks: Stampin' Up Real Red, Close To My Heart Crystal Blue
  • Tools: Stampin' Up edge punch, PaperTrey ticket die, Copic markers
  • Embellishments: Hug Snug seam binding, PaperTrey bakers twine, Sakura clear glitter pen, misc. button & gem stones

Your card is fabulous and beautifully detailed, Cheryl! I need to get me some more seam binding. Love that color!

I am glad you are feeling better. I do hope your daughter did not catch it. My son was sick last week a couple of days. Felt bad, cough, cold stuff. Yucky mess.

Pumpkin Spice - Birthday Wishes

While scrolling through the Pumpkin Spice shop, I noticed the great prices on the Christmas/Winter themed paper pads.    The fun colors and patterns on so many of the pages could be used for just about anything.   So I pulled out the “12 Days of Christmas” paper pad from My Mind’s Eye and set to work trying to make some cards.Since I never have enough birthday cards on hand, I thought that was what I would try first.  I started by punching out butterflies from several of the many patterns in the pad.    From there, I moved them around my card until I had an arrangement that I liked, added some stitching and stickers, and, “Ta Da!”, a birthday card! Since I also need a congratulations card for a friend , I thought I would see what I could make with the same paper pad.   I really love how this card turned out.(In real life, the glitter on the “U” is more similar to the aqua color in the paper.)So what do you think?   You can make some fabulous, non-holiday cards using holiday themed pap…

Catered Crop–Seeing Red

Hello!  I’m back. I’m sorry I have been gone so long.  Things have been so hectic that I haven’t had the chance to spend time in my craft room for months.  I was able to sneak away to my craft room for a while this weekend and hope to make it a regular event.I decided to use the Catered Crop’s Seeing Red recipe swap and take the opportunity to cook up some note cards to give to my mother in-law.  Although I only had time to make 4 cards, it was great to spend time in my craft room again.As always, Linda cooked up a fabulous Pinterest board to help get our creative mojo flowing.   Click on the photo below to go to her Seeing Red inspiration board.Don’t forget to link up your Seeing Red creations at the Catered Crop.Thank you for stopping by!Supplies:Stamps:  Fancy Flourishes & Little Labels from Papertrey Ink Inks:  Close To My Heart Hollyhock & Papertrey Ink Kraft inks Papers:  Papertrey white CS, My Mind’s Eye Miss Caroline Dolled Up 6x6 paper pad, misc. scrap red CS, Starbuc…
