That Is One Tall Card!

I was excited about this challenge over at Scrapmaster Paradise's Color Combos. The challenge was to make a card that would tower over a regular card. So I folded a 12x12 card stock and got busy!
Here is the end result. Now usually my Husband does the, "Oh ya nice" or the "uh huh looks good." This time he actually had a wow look on his face and said "Wow, that looks good!" For me, that is a moment!

Guess what? I won a giveaway!! Sherry Steveson had a giveaway over at 52 Sketches 52 Weeks. We were to show a layout using a lemon photo. I won her scrapbooking book!
I love anything scrapping!! Can't wait for this to come in the mail!!

Snowman Card and Bad Glue

I have been trying to craft at least a couple times a week. Since all my stuff is in the basement I am not crazy being down there by myself. So, my husband will get ready for bed and then come down and sleep on the couch watching TV so I will not be alone. He is so sweet...sometimes:)

Any who, to the card.

Here is the sketch from Unscripted Sketches.
Here is my take on that sketch.

I am also using this for a challenge at The Corrosive Challenge Blog. We were to use an embossing technique. Either wet or dry. I used embossing powder for the snowflakes.

The adhesive I am using is not sticking well. I have been using Ad Tech Glue Runner. It is the kind where it is repositional then becomes permanent. Well...when is the permanent gonna start! I noticed all the stuff I have been doing in the past two weeks is falling apart! So, now I gotta go back to the store and get better stuff and fix all my work:(

BUT, thanks for looking at my card:)

Peppermint Candy Cookies

Melissa and Amy over at Frugal Creativity is having a virtual cookie exchange. The last time I did an exchange it was 2002!! My batch is Peppermint Candy Cookies. Now when I made mine, it didn't look like this:
I couldn't get perfect swirls. But it was still good:)

3/4 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup of vegetable oil
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of peppermint extract
2 eggs
2 cups of all-purpose flour
put aside:
about 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
about 1/4 cup of red colored sugar

Heat oven to 400 degrees. Mix 3/4 cup sugar, the oil, baking powder, vanilla, salt, peppermint extract and eggs in large bowl with spoon. Stir in flour.

Drop dough by teaspoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet. (I use parchment paper) Press bottom of glass onto dough to grease, then dip into 1/4 cup of granulated sugar; press on balls until 1/4 inch thick. Spoon red sugar on cookies, using very small spoon, in spiral design to look like peppermint candies. Or place red sugar in resealable plastic food storage bag; snip off tiny corner. Squeeze red sugar from bag on cookies.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.

For more cookies, go visit Frugal Creativity. They have a linky and every post they are doing until the end of November is cookies!! YUM!!

Thanksgiving 2004 Layout

Here is a sketch from Sketchy Thursdays.
Here is my take on that sketch. It was Thanksgiving 2004. This was when Michaela was just a month and a half, Lindsey was just under 4 years and their cousin Karrigan.

I am using it for a sketch challenge over at Sketchy Thursday.

I am also using it for a challenge over at Use Your Stash. We were to use fall colors in our layout.

Thanks for looking at my layout:)

Christmas Card Ornament

I did this Christmas card for a challenge at 365 Cards. We were to make a card that can also be an ornament. The small red paper reads Happy Holidays. For the pom poms on the penguins hats I used glitter. Unfortunately the picture doesn't give the card justice. But my kids gushed over it:)

Thanks for looking at my card.


Bed Bugs Layout

I did some crafting last night. Then at 12:30 I switch to blogging. Didn't go to bed until 2:30 in the morn! My husband says I am crazy:)

This sketch came from 52 Sketches 52 Weeks.
Here is my take on that sketch. I was waking up Lindsey and put baby Michaela in bed with her. Lindsey liked her sister there in bed Lindsey was quite not 4 yet. Now she is almost 9!! She totally lost her baby look:(

Thanks for looking at my layout:)

The weekend is almost here! My husband will be bringing home his laptop. I get to blog and watch TV at the same time!! Hope everyone has a good weekend, I hear it is supposed to be nice in the Detroit area.

I Am A Bear

I saw this quiz over at Jeannie's Happy World and I had to do it!!

Your Animal is the Bear

You are courageous and a even bit primal. You're aggressive when it comes to getting what you want.

And when it comes to defending your family, you won't back down... ever!

You have good instincts, and you always know what you should do. You're a natural protector and warrior.

You are also quite playful and adventurous. You love to wander. You have a lot of energy to burn!
