Creative Cuts & More

Day 4 of my Christmas Countdown...

Okay, so I didn't get my second post up yesterday (sorry about that) but I have really "good" intentions of getting all caught up today. Yesssmileyf


This is another great die cut card from Creative Cuts & More. That scallop edge speaks to me. LOVE IT! I also love this stamp set from Papertrey Ink. So FUN!

So today I have a BUSY day in store. There is house cleaning, errands, stamping, harvesting at Farmtown, cleaning out the spare bedroom, blah, blah, blah... Holycowsmile Holy Cow, that's a lot of stuff to get done! YIKES! I guess I better get busy, eh? Yeppers!

But before I jet, what about you? Big plans today? Please tell me someone else has just as much to do. I don't want to feel so alone in all this...LOL

Alright, I am outta here. See you Peeps later!


Creative Cuts & More Holiday Blog Hop

Are you ready to do some hopping? I was invited to be a Guest Designer this month for Creative Cuts & More. As you know, I LOVE their die cut cards as they make card making sooooo EASY! Especially when you don't have that much time on your hands (like me) because of work, family life, etc. CC&M also has great die cuts for projects, gifts, etc. You definitely want to check them out.

Anywho, let's get back to the Holiday Blog Hop, shall we? Did you get here from Steph's blog? If not, you should really start from the beginning over at Die Cut Diva. You don't want to miss out on any of the cards/projects that were created by the Design Team & Guest Designers this month!!

What? Did you think I wasn't going to post today?

Well neener, neener!! Here I am in all my glory! LOL

I had to do some shopping this morning, you know, Costco, Petco, Target, Michael's...all the important stuff. Then I had to take my car to the SPA for a little bath & wax. She is sooooo HAPPY right now! Rock on Rav!! WOOHOO!!

Speaking of rocking on...


How bout this ROCKSTAR???Rockf How can you NOT love Memory Box penguins especially when they are rockin' out? LOVE IT!! And did you notice the killer die cut card? Yep, you guessed is from Creative Cuts & More!! WOOHOO!! I also used my new Cuttlebug Allegro embossing folder. I thought it fit the card, wouldn't you agree?Biggrin

Okay, soooooo...since I was so late in posting I am giving a two fer today. Two posts in one, got to love that!! Here is another project I made using a die from Creative Cuts & More, check it out...


For this one I used the Milk Carton die, I think this Milk Carton turned out a lot better than my last one!! LOL The stamps I used are from My Favorite Things (Boho Blossoms set). Such a pretty set of stamps! And the bling really adds to it if you ask me.


Alrighty then, I think that's it for today. I will have more for you tomorrow, WOOHOO!!!

Hope you all have a relaxing rest of the day!


Okay, so who is BBQ'ing tomorrow?

Anyone? Maybe I should ask if there is anyone who ISN'T working the bar-b!! LOL Hubby and I BBQ'd last night after a hard day of work in the backyard. Oh my goodness, I didn't think my vacation was going to turn into manual labor week. Shouldn't I be allowed to rest & relax?? LOL

It's okay though, it felt GOOD. It was overcast here yesterday and much cooler than it has been; so it was the perfect day to work in the yard. We picked up some new plants from Home Depot and Moon Valley Nursery(love that place) and ordered two new Queen Palms (we had one die this past winter... WHAN!) and a Lime tree for Robert's beers (yes, this is also a replacement tree...URGH!). We also added more pots to the side yard and replaced our dead flowers from last year. YEAH!! It is looking so PRETTY! I am going to give my Sis a run for her money as far as backyards go this year. LOL

Anywho, like I was saying, it was a FANTASTIC day yesterday, my yard is looking MUCH better and my as*, back and hips are killing me. LOLOLOL

So what brought all of the above on? I mean, why sit here and ramble about my manual labor, right? I have to be going somewhere with this, yes? YES!! At the end of the day yesterday I mentioned that we BBQ'd, right? RIGHT! Well, when we were chowing down our dinner while sitting out in the side yard, I was thinking of this die cut that Terry at Creative Cuts and More sent me for our challenge project this month and...well...this is what I made with it...


Wouldn't this be great to make for your guests coming over for a BBQ? It didn't take anytime to stamp and put together. I totally love it. And you have to admit, The Cat's Pajamas stamps are a perfect fit for it!! These have to be some of my all time FAVES! :)

OH! And one more random thing before I go... last night, actually early this morning, I was going through some of my photos and stumbled on this little lovely from my 4th of July vacation last year...


That is my niece, Audrey, running through the field from my Mom's house to the neighbors. Is that the most precious thing or what? makes my heart stop. She's a little devil but...she's still my niece and I adore her. Who am I kidding? I adore all of them...Chase, Makayla, Skylar...they all make my heart stop. It is sooooo GOOD to be an Auntie! :)

Alright, well, I am off like a prom dress. I hear some laundry calling my name and DEFINITELY more stamping is on the way! YEAH!! I hope you ALL have a FABULOUS Sunday!

See ya!
