Cosmo Cricket Cards

Here are a couple cards I made a little while ago using their Honey Pie line. Speaking of Cosmo Cricket be sure to check out Leah Killian's blog as she is giving a ton of goodies away!

You will probably not hear much from me until after the new year. I MUST wrap presents asap and need to get a couple more items bought or the Santa gifts will be pretty weak this year! Also need to get some cooking done. I am working Monday and Tuesday and then taking the rest of the week off.
Other shares:

Paper Crafts picked up a couple cards for their Card Creations Vol 7 issue coming out in June. I just love their publications and am always thrilled to get an email from them. Cath also has a new blog that has tons of inspiration and giveways too. Be sure to check it out - it is Moxie Fab!

Jillibean Soup - I found this fun company who has some super cute product. The owner also likes the Iowa Hawkeyes so score one for her in my book!

Happy Holidays to everyone!!!!!

Paper Crafts - Card Creations Quick and Easy - Vol 2

I received my copy today so I thought I'd go ahead and share my little turkey card that is in there. As usual this special issue if full of great ideas..and I often don't feel worthy when I'm selected for an issue! This little turkey is kinda goofy...I accidentally cut one of his legs off. Instead of fussy cutting out a another turkey...I just gave him slilt legs. To quote the great Bob Ross - "That was a happy accident!" I used Reminisce papers and stickers, Around the Block label tape and my Dymo label maker. If you haven't noticed - I use my Dymo machine alot!

Other random tibits:

I found a cute site that specializes in buttons. They are uber cute! The site is called My Little Bit of Whimsy. Be sure to check them out!

Also received a couple emails from CARDS magazine requesting cards (ok that's probably a no brainer that would be cards if you have an ounce of deductive reasoning They will be in the May 2009 issue. I have pretty much gotten used to everything being 6-9 months in advance. Unfortunately sometimes it's hard to find Easter paper in stores in October! (ETA: Just got some card love for the May issue of Scrapbook Trends ...yipee!)

Hope every is staying warm. It was in the 50's here yesterday and is 20 below plus wind chill today. I hear it's snowing in Vegas too - weird!

When Your Mom Has Ample Supplies.... can make your Webkinz a hat! I don't have scrap things to share this week, so I'll share some of Parker and Emma's recent creations. Bones (the Basset) was needing some headwear the other day. Sophie (the leopard) not to be left out...had to have one too. She kept cutting up the glitter foam paper and when each piece wasn't quite right she kept throwing it away...gasp! We attached the plastic cups with some stretchy jewelry string. Of course the hats lasted all of about 10 minutes, because if you keep taking them off and on they fall apart. Emma has made a variety of hats for Sophie and she often sports a hair bow or a Barbie skirt. Poor Parker keeps begging me to make Bones some clothes, but alas I don't sew. Hey grandma????

2 Awesome Kids Layout - Creatively Yours Sketch

This layout is simple and quick. It's also 6x12, my first time trying that size. I'm planning to hang this in my new scrap room (if it ever gets done?) I used Scenic Route and Fancy Pants paper, American Crafts vinyl Thickers and Martha Stewart flower stickers. You can find the sketch here.

Hope everyone is keeping in Iowa it is FREEZING!!!
