Happy Fall Ya'll

First off - just need to wish my Dad a big ol' Happy Birthday!!!  Love ya Dad!

Howdy friends and Happy Fall!  Today I made a Fall Banner for my mantle.  This was created for a challenge issued at Fantabulous Cricut!  They have a lot of neat ideas and inspirations, so you really ought to head over there and check it out!  Fun place to hang out! 

The challenge was to create a project with a gardening theme in mind.  When I think of fall gardening, I am reminded of apples, pumpkins, and leaves - hence the items on my banner!  It was a lot of fun to create AND I was able to use some recycled items as well - the banner pieces are made with cereal boxes cut on the Cricut!!  Yipee!  Cute and thrifty!  Without further ado.......

Have a super fabulous fall day!

More Moxie Fabulousness

Howdy peeps!  I am in love with the Moxie Goodness over at Moxie Fab World!  They are showcasing the current issue of PaperCrafts Holiday Cards and let me tell you it is to die for!!  Cath has lined up a week full of holiday challenges and today's challenge is All Wrapped Up!  Create a paper crafted gift bag, tag, box, gift wrap, etc. for the holiday season. 

I was SO EXCITED to see this challenge because I knew immediately what to get crafty with.  I made packaging for a Christmas gift, a small trinket or gift card will fit fabulously in this adorable stocking!

I created this as a gift in itself - something for the recipient to use in decorating for the Season next year! Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!

Moxie Fab(ilicious!)

Howdy peeps!  I just have to say that I adore this pic:
It is from Moxie Fab World - a really cool site to get LOTS of inspiration from!  They have a challenge called Tuesday Trigger.  This week's challenge is to create something from the above inspiration.  Let me just tell you that there are lots of great projects over there!!  So, here is what I created - what I thought of when I saw this Lipsylicious pic!

My name is Jennifer and I am a Polish Addict!  (Hi Jenn!) I have so many colors of polish it is ridiculous and I just can't help myself!  All the pretty colors just waiting to be shown off in a great pair of sandals!  Immediately after seeing all the lovely lip colors in the Trigger Pic I knew my polish needed to be scrapped.  Well - the idea is there, but not the pic.  I'm having issues with getting it to print, but in the meantime I'm off to a pedi to showcase another pretty color of polish!  Head on over to the Moxie site and play along - you have until Sunday September 19th!

Hello Kitty Trick or Treat

Howdy friends!  I cannot believe we are well into the 2nd week of September!  I need to get the wreath and decorations out and get busy!!

Speaking of getting busy - Halloween is quickly approaching and I have several cards to make for friends and family.  My oldest niece loves Hello Kitty, so this card is inspired by that love!  Cardz TV is having a Halloween Challenge - make a Halloween card and post it to Mr. Linky on her blog by Thursday, Sept. 16th - its that easy!!

I loved how this card turned out because I was able to use all scraps from my stash AND I was able to use my newest purchase - Martha Stewart's Drippy Goo punch (40% at Hobby Lobby with coupon, thank you very much!!).
