Penguins a Plenty!

Can't get enough of these cute little guys from Our Craft Lounge - they are the easiest little guys to color and so versatile. They can be used all winter and not just for Christmas! They were both done for the OCL birthday bash challenge.

Be sure to go to OCL and check out all of the fun things happinging this week to celebrate the release of 13 new stamp sets and their first birthday.

Blue Penguins: Monthly challenge
Pink Penguins: Black/pink/white challenge

Gingerbread Treat Box

Here is a darling little treat box that I plan on using as a gift box for Gingerbread cookies to give to special friends. Part of the OCL one year celebration challenge. 3D Challenge...

Fairy Dust is a Must! New Stamp Set by OCL

FAIRY DUST IS A MUST is my favorite new release by Our Craft Lounge. These cards were made for their one year celebration challenge.

Pink fairy:
I added bling by adding pink sparkle fluff the the flower that was punched with an old SU punch. More bling was added with OCL crafty sparkles to her wings.

Blue Fairy
Bling added with Our craft Lounge crafty sparkles - it is awesome glitter.. teeny tiny bits of glass crystals - beautiful on all creations.

These two cards were made Christmasie just by coloring with the traditional Red & Greens. I actually used two OCL stamp sets on the last card. The presents came from Sea-sons Greetings (another favorite set of mine because it has bubbles my fav turtle).

Austin & Amanda - Scrapbook page

Here is a beautiful page made with two of Our Craft Lounge stamp sets.. HEARTS & HUGS, & LIFE JOURNEY.
Aren't they sooo cute! Austin and Amanda are both Sophmores and have been daiting for two years. They are best of friends. I love both Austin and Amanda. I am thankful that Austin has such a great person in his life.
Background paper was made with Hearts Hugs (isn't it cute), and the journaling box & life is sentiment is stamped with Life Journey.

I am most THANKFUL for Austin

Here is my pride and joy... my son Austin Addison Black. He recently turned 16 and flew his airplane solo! He actually flew his airplane solo before getting his drivers license.. it was a personal goal of his and he did it! The kid amazes me, he sets his goals and drives himself until he succeeds! I love him so much.
Austin I love you and am so thankful that I am your mom!
Love Mom

More Christmas Cards

These are the projects we will be doing at Collective Journey TODAY! Sunday November 15th at 1:00 pm. The class is sold out but is repeating on December 2nd at 5:00 pm.

I don't have a photo of the cute little fry box with a Gingerbread man on it and a goodie inside.... that will have to be a surprise for those who visit the store or attend class. Here are the cards we will be doing!
The little penquin project can be a tree ornament or tag... you can play with it and add as many penquins as you want... very fun project!

I'm Back! Christmas Cards & more!

Wow! It has been a crazy month. I have had several classes, a trip to Washington, a trip to Maui, and still have another trip to Washington and Vegas before the month is over!

However, I am finally back to post some cards for my wonderful bloggers.
