I bought these digital images on Ebay. They fit perfectly on scrabble tiles I also got on ebay. Very fun to play with. I thought I would add a few charms or bead to this as well.

Believe it or not the year is coming to an end. That means its time for a new ATC calendar. Every year my BFF (Sunny), my daughter, my husband and I make ATCs for a calendar. I mount them on a 5 X 7 coordinating paper and we display them in an acrylic frame. This year Chelsea ( BFF's daughter) joined in as well. So fun. I was pleased with my November choice. I used mica and some fiber from my stash. The stamp is an inkadinkado stamp.
|I love mica. It is so organic. I never know how it will split, cut or flake which makes it more wonderful!|
We needed some tags for our wine cellar. We have accumulated a few bottles of wine and wanted to be able to read the tag at a glance and know what wine we were looking at. I made these....70 of them. First I cut them out on my cricut, stamped them, glittered them (I always love a bit of sparkle) and then laminated them so you could write on them with a dry erase pen and reuse them. I made the image intentionally light so the writing would stand out.
|My first try I just made them white....bbbbbooorrrring. I like this much better.|
|A close up of the image. This is a Penguin Pants set "Wine Country", Designed by my daughter.|

This is a button necklace I have been working on for a long time (not quite as long as my daughter's quilt). I am about ready to add the hardware. Still tossing around some ideas for some steampunk looking embellishments or something....
|These are all different sizes of covered buttons. I started this in the summer (I guess you can tell by the color choices).|
I saw this idea on Tim Holtz's blog and I had to make them. Sunny and I stayed up until midnight punching and scoring. Very fun!
|I didn't have all the different sized dies so we guessed. Tim Holtz has a great video that makes holding these rosettes together sssooooo easy. Check it out! You will be glad you did!|

Now that I showed you the tile...here is my fabulous painting my daughter Anali did for me. I based the color scheme on this painting. I love, love, love it!. How lucky am I to have such a talented artist for a daughter?
|This is a large painting, 30 X 20 inches.|
I am somewhat delayed posting this as I was on vacation for a week. We made some great fall cards.
|This is my favorite. How cute is the wreath! I always mean to create these pumkins every fall....and this was my chance.|
|So....really....how many leaf sets does one person need? Well, obviously I needed one more just because of this card.|
|A great gate fold card. We used the embossing folder upside down on the opposite site. Great idea.|

Well....its almost 11 (really 10) and I should go to sleep now. Here are two last tags for today! All the tags are made from scraps..LOVE to use scraps.
|This is Vintage Christmas from CTMH. It is a very old set that I use time and again.|
|This is also from the Penguin Pants DaVinci set.|
If you don't have a SU owl punch you definitely need one. This is yet another use for this versitile punch.
|So you cut off the feet and hand draw the antlers. You can also use twigs from a stamp set. I cut the labels from a spellbinder set.|
Still making gift tags. This is a stamp from the Penguin Pants DaVinci set. I love this holly and the whole set for that matter. I embossed the stamp then used my SU markers. I just got the new blender pen. It worked great on the small berries. I tried something I saw on line..I added a few white pen details here and there and I like the effect.

My sister Rhonna had a request for gift tags. I started with these. I love this little snowman from SU. The snowflake tags are actually a navy color and not black....didn't photograph well.
|The tag is cut from my Cricut and stamped with the cute snowman from SU. I put the glitter embossing powder over them from SU as well.|
|See what I mean about the color. You can kinda tell on a couple that it is navy and not black. Much better in person.|
This is the latest rolodex bunch. It is always fun to create something to do with coffee!
So...just one coffee joke...you have probably heard it but I can't resist....What does latte mean? It is French for "you paid too much for your coffee"!
|This is my creation...can you believe it...I don't own ONE coffee cup stamp!|
|This is by Gretchen|
|Jerri. I love this saying....does anyone know a latte stand that would be able to whip this up? LOL|

I got on a kick with this stamp. I really like the variety of looks. I used a new Spellbinders label that works well with the shape of the stamp I think.
|The punch is a Martha Stewart punch.|
|This is the new spellbinders die. The background paper is a DCWV small matting halloween pack.|
|This is the same Spellbinders die turned the other way.|
I saw this digi stamp on SCS and ordered it immediately!! I watercolored the image and used a Martha Stewart punch and a great spider paper I have been saving. See...you never know when you will use those special papers that you just had to have! This is really an oversized card.
|This Jack stamp is the "frame Jack" from Sassy Studio Designs.|
Played all evening yesterday!! FUN, FUN, FUN!! it is a rainy day today so I am planning continuing the craft room festival of fun. Here are 3 new cards. I have others that are drying and not put together as yet. You know me...always have to add a bit of sparkle.
|This is a new single stamp from the current SU mini catalog. I used the spellbinder pumkin for the mat. The background is an older SU bitty boo background.|
|I don't know which color I prefer. This is a crazy cool Inkadinkado clear stamp...look carefully at the bat! The spider background is a Tim Holtz embossing folder and a sparkle spider from the Michaels brand embellishment set.|
|Which color do you prefer???|
