Thankful for 3GJ Fans Blog Hop



Welcome to my stop on the 
The 3 Girl JAM design team has joined up with a few of our friends and fans to put together an awesome hop full of inspiration and fun!


3 Girl JAM has put together an awesome prize package of crafty goodness!  
To win it, all you have to do is leave a comment on each stop of the hop.  
Easy peezy!

This is definitely the time of year that we are reminded to be Thankful.
So I created this shabby "Thanks" card full of flowers, layers and crinkle ribbon.
I used my awesome little bow maker from 3GJ to create my bow and
tied it off with a button from the 3GJ Vintage Button grab bag.
I can't thank Julie K enough for the fun time I had being on her DT.
AND..thank you as well for including me in the hop line up today.
I appreciate you tracking me down Karen N and Julie O while I'm on my
little creative "hiatus".  
I was more than happy to come back and make an appearance to 
celebrate the fans of 3 Girl JAM!

Thanks so much for hopping with us today.

Happy Holidays.

Hiatus



I found myself with way too many irons in the fire this past 6 months and decided 
that something had to give.  

So.......
I've taken a little break from all of my design team commitments.  
Not taking any custom orders.
Just creating on a whim, for fun..when time allows.

We are in the process of doing some fun updates and remodeling projects to our home that
are consuming a lot of my time and energy. 

This is where I will be focusing most of my time when I'm not spending it with friends and loved ones. 


I just wanted to say thanks to those of you who frequent my blog and leave such kind comments time and time again.  There's such a wonderful bond in the craft community and I'm so grateful for each of you.  You've inspired me and encouraged me over and over.
I'll try to post when I can and visit your blogs as often as possible.
I'm not vanishing forever, just on hiatus...at least for now. 

'til next time.....

May Your Treats Be SWEET

Hello friends...Happy Saturday!
Today is my day to post on the blog over at
Craftin Desert Divas
I thought a Halloween card would be quite appropriate 
for today's post.  I mailed all of my goodies out earlier
this week except this one which will be hand delivered tonight
with some yummy candies. 


I had a great time using the Fright Night Set this season.
There are endless options with this set.

The In Line Die set was really handy to create a unique
border for my image area.
I love the cut out circles along with the dash/dot stitch. 

Whatever it is you are doing this weekend...I hope it's awesome!

A little Fa la la la square card using 

Rudy along with the new Stitched in Circle dies.
