Hello.  The month of December was crazy for me.   I had to be at work at 5am.   Most nights I don't get to bed until 11pm.  My daughter came home at Thanksgiving and left today.  She bought her two tiny dogs with her.  Then the toilet overflowed in her bathroom, we had to tear up the carpet in 2 bedrooms.  Hope to arrange for new carpet soon.  Also I had 42 for dinner on Christmas Eve.  So i apologize for not visiting your blogs for the last few weeks.  I hope to get back on track soon.  We have inventory on the 9th and 10th, which involves a few more overnight shifts.  Then i can relax.
Here are the goody bags I gave to my co-workers for the holidays.  I got these yummy Eos Lip balms at Costco.  The box is from Sweet treats.  The bird is from Jolly Holidays. The sentiment and sentiment dies are from MCT

This year I decided to personalize the money holders I am making for my nieces and nephews.  Here is the girly version.  I used My Creative time dies for all of the cuts except the striped label which is Spellbinders.  The stamps are also MY CREATIVE TIME.  The papers are DCWV.
I used the MCT Stitched Giftcard Holder for the larger ones.  The smaller one are the Stitched Tri-fold Card.  I folded a piece back to form a little money pouch

50 Shades of Holiday Cards

Finally my holiday cards are finished.  Each one is different.  I didn't want to buy any new paper.  (well one pad)  It seems like I should be able to craft for a year without buying anything.  I started off with a Sizzix Framelets Flip-it die.  It comes with 11 pieces.  Everything you need to complete a card.  The embellishments are from Joys of the Season and Jolly Holidays. I love the Fantabulous cricut Challenges and look forward to them every week.  Last week my card made top 5.  So excited.  This weeks challenge is to make a Holiday card.  CLICK HERE to join in the fun.  I am also linking up to DL.

Black and White Holiday Card

Hello.  I finally spent some time in my craft room.  I have almost finished my holiday cards.  Hope to post soon.  FCCB is having a "Beyond Red and Green " challenge.  I had a large scrap of this paper.  It didn;t have the name on it.  Then I cut the reindeer from Joys of the Season.  The die is Spellbinders.  The black and the white glitter paper is Core'dinations.  The silver is DCWV.  The snowflake is K&Company.

Hello, it has been a while since I posted.  Work has been crazy.  I worked from 7:30 thanksgiving until 530 am Black Friday.  Then its 5 a most days.  A co-worker asked me to make a graduation card for her daughter with a zombie on it.  I had a hard time finding a zombie girl.  I gave up with a cricut cut and found this cute digital SPESCH STAMPS.  I used Prisma color pencils.  The die and sentiment are from My Creative Time. The inside sentiment is from Beyond Birthdays.  The solid papers are Core'dinations, the rest is DCWV.  The brad is K&Company.
