Hello Kitty Blog Hop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello everyone and welcome to the Hello Kitty Blog Hop! We have lots of FABULOUS projects and prizes for you today, so make sure you make a stop on every blog! This hop is a 2 day hop, so you have plenty of time to get through all of the blogs. If you've arrived here from (person before you)'s blog you're on the right track! If you're stopping by my blog today and want to start at the beginning, please visit Emily's blog (link

My project was super simple.  I used the Cricut Art Philosopy Cartridge from CTMH and the Hello Kitty Greetings Cartridge.  I cut the door hanger from the Art Philosopy Cartride in red.  This was cut witht the fit to page function on the Cricut.
I cut the cute winking Kitty face at 4" so it would cover most of the box on the door hanger.  The face was only three cuts so in total this project was only 4 cuts!!! I love a simple project.  The black and white paper is from CTMH and the red glitter paper is from SU--I used a scrap for this one!

Don't forget that to have a chance to win the grand prize you must stop by each blog along the hop! Good Luck to you all.

Baby you can drive my car.........

Well maybe!  As I shared on Friday, I got a new car and have gotten some emails for pics--so here goes.  I am not bragging--just sharing!! (LOL) I wish I would have gotten one of these years ago.
Here she is with the TOP up.  It's a 2012 VW Eos--and I am in love!!!! it drives great, the radio is awesome, and the option between a convertible or a sunroof is amazing
Here she is with the top down.  I think it was down all weekend--even Sunday night when I went to the airport to pick up a friend at 11 PM.  All I have to say is heated seats and heater do wonders on a cool night!
The view from the drivers seat--
I must admit that it was sort of unplanned.  I was going to trade in next spring but the deal was too good and once I went for a test drive--I knew I had to take it home.
Make it a great one-

The EYES have it

Well it looks like we all survived another halloween--I had to fly to NYC so there was not tricks or treats for me!  For each of the major holidays I like to make my staff a goodie bag so this year is was all about EYES for Halloween.
As you can see my scrap room is almost ready to show but at least I can start creating-been on withdraw cause I have not been able to play with paper and my ATG gun!
Here is a close up. I used basic black and white cardstock from CTMH.  The ziplock bags are from Michaels.  The sentiment is from Pink By Design and the Eye is a stamp I found in KC when I was there in early September.  The eyeball gumballs were from Target!
So for the eye; I used versa mark ink and black CTMH embossing powder for the base.  I used CTMH markers to color the center of the eye and for the red bits I just colored over the embossing.  

The sentiment is from Pink By Desing Ghostly Greetings stamp set and stamped with Daisy White ink from CTMH.
Needless to say they were a hit at the office on Monday--
Thanks for stopping by and make it a great one-
