Santa Edwin Lantern

Good Thursday Morning My Crafting Friends!

Today I am posting my first lantern project.  The lantern itself took a while to get together but I believe the results are well worth it.  You can insert a battery operated candle into it and display it proudly or fill it with candy and give as a gift.  (I say put the candle at the bottom and then fill it with candy so that when the receiver finishes the treats, they can then display it).
Thank You So Much For Stopping By Today!

Zombie Tilda

Happy Tuesday My Crafty Friends!

I absolutely LOVE this time of year because living in Arizona means it's almost always too hot to do anything but swim.  But come October, the temperatures drop below 100 degrees and all of my pent up energy wants out and to get things done.  On top of that, YAY, the hubster is now full time at our own shop which means that I have time to do what I love to do again.  CRAFT!!!

I'm excited to get working on Christmas projects but I just had to squeeze in a little something for Halloween.  Here is sweet Tilda ariving at the party to scare the pants off everyone but, of course, she is just too cute to spook anyone.
This little goodie bag will hold some treats for that extra special trick-or-treater.
Thank you so much for stopping by today.  The challenges I would like to enter are listed below and a supply list is at the bottom of the post.  Your comments make my day and are very much appreciated.

Have a happy and safe Halloween!

Heartfelt Christmas

Hello Sweet Friends!  I hope this post finds you all healthy and happy. 

I've been working on this card for almost two weeks.  Finding time to craft has been dodgy because of my hubby going back to his regular job for a little while, but he's put in his notice and will be working for our own shop as soon as they find his replacement.  THEN I will have more time for crafting and I'm very excited about that.  Anyway, here is my latest creation:
This is Joyful Tilda and she is serving up some love (and cookies) for her family and friends on Christmas Day.  I just love this stamp!
I don't make easel cards very often but I felt this one needed to be.  I also went with non-traditional colors and that is very difficult for me.  I am such a stickler for tradition in almost all things that stepping outside of my box causes me to panic a little bit.  Oh, and procrastinate.  :p
I found this beautiful sentiment stamp at my local craft store and knew it could be used for so many occasions...
Here is an extra little surprise, a peek-a-boo card.  It's like a little hidden treasure.
I think this will be a great way to give a gift card, because sometimes you just get a gift card in a boring old envelope and it isn't as much fun.  This will make it so much more special.
Thank You So Much for stopping by and taking a peek!  Comments are always welcome and appreciated.  The challenges I'm entering are listed below and my supply list is at the bottom of this post.  Have a wonderful day!
