This first project is for the challenge at Die Cuts R US Design Team. The challenge was to create a handmade gift. I am making coffee mugs for my staff and my boss. The logo was converted to a cut file for my Cricut Expression and I etched the glass with the diecut! Cool eh? Each mug will have a packet of hot cocoa and a candy cane (I didn't have the real thing when I took the photo!). There is a poem on the back called "Snowman Soup" . I decided to take the school logo and make these for the teachers too. So simple and quick and way too much fun!
This is a birthday card I whipped together last night for my hubby using a bit of this and a bit of that from my stash. The kids think he turned 22 (boy are they snowed!). Happy Birthday Matt! You are the best!

The printed paper was from the Paper Popsicles' store, the Studio 8 Birthday collection. The blooms are Petaloo. The letters are leftovers from the last kit I worked iwth. The Pearls are a mix of miscellaneous goodies from the craft store and Kaiser Craft.
I used some stickles to accent as well. Thanks for looking and Happy Crafting!

These were super simple and the Cosmo Cricket papers made these a breeze to make!
And now for my loves....here are pictures of my little people while we were out at the tree farm getting our tree today. I am going to be posting more photos along with my creations in 2010, part of my new year's resolution. I think my family will enjoy that for sure! Here is Nicholas:
And my sweet Hannah (she is worried she won't get to see the horses)

I did manage to get this one done for Diecuts R Us Design Team. The challenge was to Emboss something with an embossing folder. I just so happen to have quite a collection of these puppies so I whipped mine out.
Last night I participated in a cookie posting challenge at SNR: Digital Delights by Louby Loo. This was their first event there. For an hour we posted our most favorite cookie recipies. I was so hungry when we finished! We got a free digi image to play with in the end. The image below was provided for a challenge. I didn't win but I had fun coloring it in with my copics, learning how to blend better.
