This card is certainly not one of my favorites! In fact I wasn't even going to post it! I did spend allot of time on it :-) I really hate it when that just happens some times! The ideas is o.k. but I think it is the colors or maybe it is the ribbon....I don't know.

This card is for my friend julie at work....hope she likes it!
My first time using the felt flowers. I did scrap lift the idea from the November issue of papercrafts page 75. I just changed it a bit to make it my own style. ALSO Julie is an Arbonne consultant. So if you are into all the creams & potions for keeping you looking & feeling young you can check out her website (it is in my links list under non crafty friends)
Perhaps I should have named my blog " my glittery days off" I put glitter or stickles on almost everything...specially the Christmas stuff & this one is no exception. I believe the paper, the ribbon & the snowflakes (roller) are from stampin' up. The word stamp is from close to my heart & the snowmen stamp is from Great Impressions.
I love making these flip flop photo holders! This one holds some pictures of my dogs in Halloween costumes. Here in Arizona you can get flip flops year around. I got these on the sale rack at Michale's for a buck. Makes a cute Halloween decoration! I have made a few of these using different flip flops or shoes...I will be making a baby one soon with baby shoes & pictures...I must say these are just darling!!
All work & no crafts makes Gwen a very cranky girl! I worked over 100 hours in the last 2 weeks...was sick one day & had a work get together after work last Friday ( Lots of fun) & volunteered for for my friend Gena Johnson who is the founder & president for Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona.Yesterday they had the biggest fund raiser of the year the "Buddy Walk" Which as always, was a huge success! Congratulations Gina you are AWESOME!!http://www.sharingds.org/
so....Today is all for me!! I will be crafting & posting throughout the day, so if you get the chance...drop on in from time to time! Leave me a comment If you like what you see OR if YOU post anything crafty for me to see!
I am starting out with this very simple little Christmas card...My creative brain is full of cobwebs & work stuff so may take a few to get the good stuff rolling Tee Hee Hee!!

We had an absolute blast at the Brian Regan comedy show last night!! If any of you would like to check him out... this is his website. It is totally good clean comedy!
My Husband asked me to make him a thank you card for work....I just love it when he asks me to make cards for him to give to friends & family :-)
This is what I came up with...I think it could also double for a fall/Thanksgiving card.

Yes I know it is a long time until Christmas! My husband already mentioned that to me! I could not help myself. It is only in the low 80's today! Living in Arizona that is almost sweater weather..te he he. Plus I have all this beautiful Christmas paper & stamps to use, thought I had better get started. All the paper from this card is from Stampin' up. I used the little furn punch for the swag & snowflake punch on the corners, and the Marvey jumbo for the center. The word stamp is from close to my heart. Finished size is 4 1/2 x 5.
This is an awesome punch also... This one is from Stampin up. so fun to use with the matching stamp sets. I am having a very crafty day!! I have been up for several hours. My husband is playing golf today so I have the house to myself. What a mess I have made!!! I have 5 cards done as well as the treat bag. I have to stop for a while & clean up the mess. I am having trouble finding anything!! So keep checking back if you have time to see what I have been up to :-)
O.K. So I guess I am not done with Halloween! This is a little treat bag made with the Martha Stewart punches....they are fabulous! so easy to punch with. The template for the bag I got at Target in the Scrapbook section. I Must say Target has really stepped up that section. So very many cute things!
