thank you banner...

Did you survive it...or are you still experiencing the whole holiday madness?

I might just be 'out there' snapping up after christmas buys....

Okay, okay...onto some craftiness...

You all know how much I adore colors, patterns and stitching...this card has a little bit of everything!  Yuppers...that would be another Hero Arts 2011 release...Friendly Flags!  I'm  entering this into the Hero Arts Thank You Challenge...



All the paper is ala the Pink Paislee line, Sweetness which is from Torendi!


Pssttt.....Torendi is having a SALE!!!!


Torendi is having a 30% off sale until 2011


COUPON CODE: holiday2010

Next up is a giftie I made for Darin's daughter...

An altered CD tin...I picked up a bunch of these from Stampin' Up...all the paper is compliments of the fabbie Julie!!!  Thanks sooo much girlie!!!!  So much Nikki Sivils goodness...if I remember correctly, the polka dotted paper is called......JULIE!

Check out the inside of the tin....


I made 4 different card tags....all the sentiments are SRM....Darin's girl is in college {such a smart whipper snapper!} so I put together some cards that she can give to her new college friends:)


I was inspired by the current Caardvarks Monochromatic Challenge...


Did you hear that it is Caardvarks' final challenge?  ::sigh:: so sad to see a challenge blog close up shop but they are certainly going out with a **bang**.
