Okay, in my surfing this morning I came across this beautiful inspiration challenge over at 
Stamp-A-Holics.  While I was checking it out I saw that one of my friends had also played along, and go figure we also both used the same stamp set.  This card below was one of my make and takes at a workshop this weekend and I thought that it would fit into this challenge,  so I decided to play along.  I love the look of our Presto Patterns Specialty DSP but in the catalog it is easy to look over.  I have found that this is one of those products that has to be shown or used at a workshop.  Thanks for stopping in and I hope you like it.

Pretty Distressed

Good Morning, I just got back from the gym, and I am telling you it is hard to get back into it again.  Last year I was going at least 4 times a week and now I am lucky to make it twice a week.  What is up with that...

So does this look a little familiar?  I saw this on one of the display board at convention and knew that I would have to make this card form my girls at some point.  I had a show on Sunday, Thanks Donna, and this was one of the projects that the girls made.  I just love all the distressing but let me tell you when you have 7 girls making this one it can be bit fuzzy, literally.  You should have seen all the dust this one created.

Santa - Holly

Oh so our porch roof is still leaking ;-( and Eric thought he fixed it.  It rained here Tuesday night and pretty much all day on Wednesday.  I went out to check on it and of course he was on travel and so at 6:00am I am out trying to figure out what to do and of course I did (catch the rain into a cup)... Temporary fix.  You see this leak is right at the dormer which then slopes right into the porch roof, what a pain.

So I wanted to post something today and well here it is, hope you like it.  Eric is home now from travel so I will stop in later.  Thanks for stopping by.

Have a Wonderful Day, Candice :-)

This is one of the project that if you went to a Regional you all know it.  I needed a real quick and easy birthday card for a workshop and thought this would be perfect.  I added the birthday wishes and moved up the main image and look, quick and easy.

Bag Tag

I picked up these packs of chipboard in a dollar bin (5 pieces of chipboard per package) and I grabbed a bunch, about 10 packs. At the time I didn't even know what I was going to do with them, I just knew I needed to get them, and they have been sitting in my room for about 7 months. I thought I could use them at my I-Crafty Camp but I had way to many other projects that I wanted to do with them. Well just the other day I was blog surfing and saw a really cute round gift bag tag, and the first thing I thought of were these great packs of chipboard. I pulled two of them out and this is what I came up with.
What a cute way to dress up a gift bag.
I also played along with Stampin' Royalty Anything but a Card Challenge #38, so go stop on by and check out some of the other great projects here at their blog. Hope you like it, thanks for stopping in.

Reduce Reuse and Recycle

Nothing like being able to reuse something to reduce in the amount of trash... So I saw a card and I wish I could remember where I saw it and it was using card board like in my card and I just thought it was the coolest idea, hope you like it.

In the first 3 photos the girls are hard at work creating their background for the frame. You can click on the photos to get a much closer look. Thanks for stopping by.

Look close can you see the owl face... It is upside down...
