Be Merry - MFT

Good morning! I know, I know...it's been forever since I have posted!  My family and I went away for a week to the Georgia Mountains.  We stayed in a beautiful cabin in the woods and had thanksgiving.  We took little trips into town, did some shopping and enjoyed lots of Pies from Merciers in Blue Ridge, GA. Can we say - yummmmmy! I love that place, if you are ever in the area it's definitely a must visit kind of place! We did the orchard tour too so it was fun to learn all the history of it. The original owner, Ms. Adele is in her 90's and she still shows up to work every day! ;-)  It's our favorite place to go!  Another of my favorite places in Blue Ridge is The Sweet Shoppe, they were on Cupcake Wars and just recently made the cupcakes for the American Music Awards! Pretty cool. Not to mention they have a beautiful little shop in the downtown area of Blue Ridge.

Now it's back to reality. I am grossly behind on my christmas task. I have barely started shopping and normally I am completely done by now. I didn't get my Christmas cards made and I know it's still early, but I hardly have any christmas decorations up and don't see it happening over the next 2 weeks.  However, I do have a couple cards finished and waiting to be posted so we will start with this one:

I have colored this Pure Innocence from My Favorite Things image with Copic markers.  I used some vintage seam binding and a jute knot on the button. The tab die and border punch are both from My Favorite Things as well.

Thanks for looking - Don't forget I have another prize up for grabs on my Facebook Page!

You Warm My Heart- SOG Release

** This is my second post today, scroll down for the Whimsie / Ribbon Carousel blog hop!
***If you are looking for my Facebook Book Candy  - Come by HERE.

Gooooood Morning! Today the Some Odd Girls are sharing the latest Digi release!!  If you haven't seen the last couple of days come by the blog and check out the other 2 digi releases!

Today I am using - Cuppa Mae. I am NOT a coffee drinker, however, lately I have been sick and I have been grabbing coffee, hot tea or hot chocolate because it warms me up and makes me feel so much better!  I knew I wanted to play with Cuppa Mae. I had some ideas of making these little Keurig Boxes for sometime now and It's just the perfect image for it!!

I found this box tutorial online, however, the directions were ALL WRONG. I was so aggravated (as were many others when I started reading the comments, lol) so I did some tweaking and made it work and I love it. So, I am going to redo this and make a little tutorial to share soon.
I think I know what people at work are getting this year! ;-)  Perfect little something....

I colored Cuppa Mae with copic markers.  The paper is from My Minds Eye, one of their older lines. The Ribbon is V-Striped Twill from May Arts. The sentiment is from CTMH. 

Copic Colors:
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R02
Shirt: R30, R32, RV10
Mug: YG11, YG13, YG17
Hair:  E21, E23, E25, E29

Thank you so much for looking today and be sure to come by the Some Odd Girl blog and take a look at the other Dt's creations and the other releases!

All I want.....is some FB Candy and YOU!

Hello!  How is everybody....sorry it's been so quiet on the blog lately. Between the Holidays and being sick I have had no mojo!!  This week I am trying to get things organized, cleaned and ready for my Thirty One party I am having.  I had a HUGE Failed attempt at making Macarons last night too. If they didn't take so much in terms of money and prep, I wouldn't mind failing at making them in honor of learning the technique properly....however...it gets costly!!  I am going to try again tonight, I spent a little while last night getting a few more pointers. I think mine failed because I didn't fold them enough. So it was too stiff.  Whatever.... If they don't come out again....I'm done and I will wait til I am in NYC and go to Bouchon Bakery, which have EXCELLENT Macarons, to get my fix!
Don't let me lose you yet. I have a card to share and some FACEBOOK Candy below.   
I used Tilda with Little Rudolph from the Magnolia Little Christmas Collection.  She is so sweet!  The sentiment is from Some Odd Girl - GingerBread Kaylee set.

Copic Colors: 
Red: R24, R27, R29, W4
Skin: E000, E00, E11, R20
Hair: E51, E53, E33
Gray/White: C1, C2
Deer: E42, E43, E44, E47
So now on to the good stuff.  I am having a Facebook "Fan" page candy giveway!! Help me get to 400 likes by "Liking" my facebook page and you can win some candy. There are additional ways to win as well!  If you do one of the following you can also get and "extra" entry:

Autumn Blessings....

Good morning!!! Lucky me went to a crop ALL DAY Saturday and got in some much needed card making. We had a great time too. There were loads of giveaways and games. I won a nice zebra print carry-on bag. At the end of the day I ended up getting 8 cards completed and a couple images colored. I had so many images already colored and so many others that I wanted to get inked before the holidays ran by! Here is one of the cards that I completed:

The pumpkins are from CC Designs. The paper is from Authentique.  I used some Brown Vintage Seam Binding from the Ribbon Carousel.

Can you believe the holidays are right around the corner??  I love this time of year but hate how fast it flys by. I also usually have my shopping close to being done by now and I have only bought 1 thing so far!!  As my kids and nieces and nephews get older it gets so difficult to buy for them!! I think I am going to open up the purse strings and hand out money trees this year....they can then go buy what they want.  Less stress on me too! ;-)

Have a good one!
