Oh Christmas Tree!!!!

It's Friday!!!!! And boy has it been a long week.  I did make my first holiday card and I rather like it!!!!
The paper is all Close To My Heart, and this Christmas collection and the ribbon is the color ready seam binding also from CTMH.
The tree is a die from Papertrey Ink which I love and cut it twice and pop dotted the layers!
 On the inside I used a PTI stamp-one of the $5 sets of holiday sentiments, some CTMH embossing powder, and my handy dandy heat gun to finish it off.
Hope you all have a great weekend and I have more to share with you next week!!!!!
Make it a great one

Spooktacular Wine Tag

Well we have made it to Wednesday and the week is half over.  Halloween is one of my least fav holidays but there seems to be as many parties for it as there are during the holidays.  My go to host/hostess gift is a great bottle of wine.  I made this tag and think it may become my go to for all parties--it's fast, easy, and you can use all the small bits of paper you have in that scrap bucket.

The tag is 7" long and 2.5" wide--simple right.  I scored the fold at 2 inches from the top edge and folded over.  For the circle I used a 1 1/4" circle punch and I round the edges of the corners (top edge) with my corner chomper.  I cut strips of Halloween themed paper at 1" by 2.5" and place them on the tag.
I used a chipboard sticker I got at Wal-Mart at least a year ago and added some google eyes in the O's.
Super simple and it took all of 10 minutes to make.

Ok I will have another post for you on Friday--that's right three this week--go big or go home--LOL
Make it a great one-

Card for a wedding

Hello old freinds--it has been way to long.  Life has been crazy and I am just catching up on so many things right now.  I did get a chance to do a little bit of crafting and I think there will be more time in my not so distant future to really get my hands inky in my studio (also known as my old dining room!)

Today is my turn to post over at Pink By Design so head over and check out a card I made for a wedding I am going to next weekend.
Head on over for all the details and we will see hyou back here on Wednesday!
Make it a great one
