I used the Key to My Heart paper & stamps. They are this months special from CTMH. You can read more about this special offer a few posts down. I also used the new StaysOn Ink in Timber Brown. This is the first time for CTMH to offer StaysOn in a color other than Black. I know the flourish looks black on this scan, but it is really brown. Other colors are Creme Brulee, Juniper, and Sorbet. I really like this vintage look.
Thanks for stopping by!

Don't you just love this little snail? I hate slugs! (bad experience from the past), but thought this stamp from Penny Black was adorable. He is just simply called Christmas Snail. I used Red Stickles on the dots on his back and Silver Stickles on his hat.
My little kitty friend is from Penny Black's Christmas Critters Clear Stamps. He looks like he may have just eaten a mouse. I also used this week's sfytt from iheart2stamp.com on both cards.

THis first picture is a mini 3x3 box for Christmas tags. The stamp set is Mery Pursuits and the paper is CTMH's Evensong. This sketch is from Jen Del Muro's SFYTT. I Found this cutie patootie owl on the SCS website. His head is made from a label punch and his arms are cut from my small Nestabilities using my Big Kick. I also used Autumn Type CB embossing folder and Pumpkin #4 sizzlet. He's got a little bit of Stickles on his wings, but I messed up the original owl when I layed the card on the scanner. The Stickles smeared everywhere. The original had Stickles on the ears and on his belly. Had to toss it. :(
This is Fancy Fold Christmas Tree for the Hostess Club Workshop. It is very cool and 3-D. Not too hard to make, though I wouldn't want to make a bunch of them.
Here is another Fancy Fold Card with an evening Dress. I used stickles on the top. I think it looks pretty enough to wear.
Ohhh, Charlie Horse! I love you. He is from Clear Dollar Stamps and there are several more Charlie designs to chose from. The paper is CTMH's Sarsparilla. Perfect for this stamp. Sketch design by Jen Del Muro at iheart2stamp.com
Finally, this is a Bag~A~Lope! Funny name, but a cute sack made from an envelope. I think this stamp set is very elegant looking. It is ctmh's Vintage Christmas.

Just one card tonight. I'm feeling tired and sleepy today, but wanted to give this card a try. I made it for my MIL's birthday. She collects mice at Christmas time, so maybe she will like this one.
This is of course from Jen's (iheart2stamp.com) Saturday Sketch for You To Try.
The Paper is from Scenic Route Paper Company
Stamps are Penny Black ~ Critter Party
I used my SU scalloped punch for the scallops on the light blue paper
& my Nestabilities for the scalloped circles.
Not sure where the flowers and crystal brads came from. Probably Oriental Trading.

The second image is from Penny Black and is called "Green Line". I just love froggies! I collect them and they have almost taken over my "Scrap Pad"! So, I was soo excited when I finally got to use this stamp. The paper on both cards is SU's Haiku. I like it as a nontraditional fall color combination.
Well, just a little bit about my weekend. My cousin (who was born when I was in college..Uggg! I'm getting old) got married this weekend. We had family in from all over. Her dad and my dad are the only family members still living in the Altus area. There are 5 siblings. All of the siblings and their children live elsewhere. So we had people from each coast here. It was a great family reunion. I was able to see one of my cousins that is my age for the first time in about 10 years. Everyone is growing up so fast. Especially the "Big Cousins". We are now all pushing 40. That seems so strange to say. In my mind I'm still a little kid playing on the farm or water skiing from dusk til dawn with Mama Dippy. Anyway, seeing everyone brings back good memories, but also makes me sad for the ones who are no longer with us.

You can see Jen's sketch and her card on iheart2stamp.com
Oh yeah, I wanted to tell you about the heart cut out. My cuttlebug friend( Deneise ) told me about this technique. You can brayer your embossing folder, then use it like you normally would. The ink will only transfer to the embossed shape. The rest of the paper will be white, or what ever color you use. Then I just cut the heart out with my scissors. Cool huh?
The next card is also made with Bella Flor Paper. I had so much fun making this card. My friend let me borrow her Cuttlebug Embossing folders. They are so much fun! I don't know the names of these folder. Can you beleive the company does not label their folder? I sure with they would.
Anyway, This Bella stamp is called Cuppacakeabella. I love their names! LOL
I used liquid applique and glitter on the cupcake along with a Bella Bauble for the cherry on top. Too stinkin cute! I made this card to give to my grandmother for her birthday next Saturday. She will be 75 and acts like the girl on the cupcake. I hope I look and act as good as Granny when I am 75!
Hope you enjoy my cards!

I made this card for my friend Nancy. Her father past away last night. I used the gate fold cards that I ordered from Stampin Bella. I used the Cuttle Bug Paisley embossing folder for the flaps. The colors are lilac mist and sweet leaf. The stamp set is SU's Always. I think it turned out pretty. I love this bird.

Anyway, These are pics of my silly family! Shelby is the one on top. This is his Zoolander look.
This is Caleb before we waxed his unabrow!
And this is the kids on the first day of school. Oh, It's going to be a long year!
This last one is Daniel. He is best friends with the boys. Why all the cool hair dos? I told them I didn't like their hair in their eyes and they all needed a hair cut. Well, they didn't want hair cuts, but they did let me get their bangs out of their eyes. Then, I went around the table waxing eyebrows and hairy facial moles! OOg. I love these boys. They are so much fun!
Card #2 I'm not really crazy about. Just couldn't get it to come together. However, it is CTMH's Stamp Of the Month and chocolate, lilac mist and sweet leaf paper.
This last one, I used Stampin Up's Always set. I really like the look of this stamp set. The colors are chocolate, sweet leaf and lilac mist again. These are CTMH colors.
