A lot of Somethings for a Saturday!

I have been sick this week. Started out with a cold but morphed into Strep Throat. Eek! So I haven't posted anything. Mojo was flowing though and this is what i have done This morning:
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!
This card is for the Cupcake Craft Challenges blog. This has been a fun site to follow. I am a sucker for challenges (can you tell?!). In fact, I won last week's challenge and snagged some cute digis from Soft Pencil! This week we were to create a card with the colors Red and Green. I used some MM printed papers and Cosmo Cricket. The Digi is from Digital Delights by Louby Loo. I am still working on my coloring skills with those copics. Good thing I won a new set from the Cuttlebug Challenge blog. I think the trick is to have alot of these suckers in multiple shades.
This card was made using up the remaining Cosmo Cricket paper I had and a digi from Paper Popsicles. I used some Kaiser Craft pearls for some of the snow flakes. It is hard to see here but I used Shimmerz Blingz on the snowman. I did this card for the Snowflake challenge (#19) at Kaboodle Doodles.
This final quickie is a tag that I made with another Digital Delights by Louby Loo image. There is a challenge right now at PaperCraft Planet and their website right now using this image.
I whipped out my MM Slice for this one. I think it turned out rather cute. I think that is all I have for now. It is off to the mall with the little people and out for dinner with the birthday guy! Have a great day and Happy Scrapping!

OMG! Tricia...if you craft like that when you are sick you should get strep more often...JK! I really hope you are feeling better soon. However, your Mojo is flowing Lady Bug! Great mug idea! Wonderful cards (my fav is the snowman and snowflake card, love the use of pearls on the snowdots). Super duper job!

Smiles!
