New Twine from The Twinery!

Did you see that The Twinery released TWO brand new twine colors?  Platinum and Gold Shimmer!  They are beautiful and add just the right amount of sparkle to your projects.  I FINALLY had a chance to use some, and I combined it with my favorite Maraschino twine.  The Platinum Shimmer adds a lovely sparkle!
I used my Silhouette design software's rhinestone feature to add holes, so I could thread the twine through.  Super easy!  I've had this image from Mo Manning for a while, but I kind of forgot about it.  It reminds me of my sweet little one...
Ugh...I can't believe that she's going to be 5 next month.  


Don't forget that tonight is Peachy Keen's December Release Party over at the Peachy Keen Connection!  It starts at 6pm CST!  Hope you can join us for lots of crafty chatter, challenges and prizes!

Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge!

Happy Tuesday!  Today is the start of a brand new Scrappy Moms Terrific Tuesday Challenge!  This week's challenge is to create a Christmas themed project - it can be a card, a craft - ANY new project!  I hope you can join us!  Just link up your project to the Scrappy Moms site!  
Here's a closer look at my card.  I love these sweet carolers and I thought they worked perfectly with the "Falalalala" sentiment from the newest Christmas stamp set from Scrappy Moms - Christmas Cheer!
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Peachy Keen December Peeks!

Happy Monday!  I can't believe that I actually have a project to share!  I know...it's super simple, but let's just say that it's CAS style.  Ok?  It's my newest Copic technique...coloring in bed, while lying on my left side.  LOL!  I don't necessarily recommend it.  :)  Peachy Keen Stamps has done it again - another month, another amazing set of images and sentiments!  This cute little snowman is from one of the newest add-on sets.  You probably saw him yesterday too...I think quite a few of us have fallen in love with him.  
I hope you will head over to the Peachy Keen Stamps blog to see even more amazing peeks of this month's Stamp of the Month set AND some of the adorable add-ons.  All of the sets will be revealed on Wednesday, December 5th.  Make sure to join us for the last release party of the year over on the Peachy Keen Connection - December 5th @ 6pm CST.  As always there will be lots of crafty chatter and some really fun challenges!  Plus...giveaways!

Skating by to say hi!

Hey crafty friends!  I have a quick card to share with you today and a few things to share!  I actually finished this card before the doctor put me on bed rest, and I finally snuck into my craft room for about 5 minutes yesterday to take some pictures of a few projects.  This little penguin is from the Skatin' By set from Peachy Keen Stamps that was released last month.  It's such a cute set, and it's a great deal - 2 adorable images and 3 sentiments!

I've been able to finish a few projects to share this week.  I've figured out that I am able to color images while laying on my left side.  Just to give you an idea of how bored I am...I continued to color even though my left arm kept falling asleep.  Dedicated or crazy?    

Make sure to check back tomorrow - I have a peek of this month's Peachy Keen Stamps release!  I should also have a few more cards to share...I will warn you - they are not super elaborate, but at least I'll have some projects!

Hope you've had a good weekend!  See you tomorrow!!!
