Happy Holidays!


Hey! I'm back (in the same day I might add hee hee)!! I know kinda funny I went from a Halloween card to a Christmas card!! I've completely skipped Thanksgiving! I need to make a note to myself to do a few of those up soon also!

This card popped into my head this evening and it seemed like I couldn't rest till I made it! That ever happen to anyone else?!  I just love this Triple Tree with snow stamp from D.R.S. Designs. I was able to get it last year when I guest designed on their blog. I think it looks great paired with Emma's adorable snowman from the All Around Accessories stamp set. I did some paper piecing (the paper I used to piece with is from some scraps printed from the Imagine cartridge Mr. Frosty). I then cut it out and popped it up with Helmar's ZapDots. I used my copics to color the trees and to add some shadowing to the snow and snowman. For the sentiment, Happy Holidays I used another one of Emma's awesome sets, All Around Christmas.


Thanks for looking! Hugs, Leanne


Peachy Keen Challenge - Creepy Cute!


Hey everyone! Sorry I've been missing the last few days! I wished I had a real good excuse but I don't won't to lie to you! I've been just plum lazzzyy hee hee! It's been really chilly (well, for me it is my husband thinks I've lost my mind!) and I have spent alot of time curled up on the couch with a blanket!! When it turns cold I don't function to well...I'm already missing my flip flops :(

I want to share with you a card I made this morning for the Peachy Keen challenge, Creepy Cute! I love Peachy Keen stamps they just add a cuteness to anything you use them with! I used the cricut cartridge, October 31st for the melting candle. I used my Gyspy and the hide feature to turn this into a blackout and cut it from white cardstock. I then used the same image and blacked out everything but the flame and cut it out in orange cardstock. I used the PK 692 Monster Mash Face Assortment. I colored the eyes and did just a little bit of shadowing with my copics. I then added glossy accents to the eyes. I also added some diamond stickles to add some sparkle! I used Helmar ZapDots to pop it up. I used two of My Creative Time stamps sets (Mixed Holiday Sentiments & XL Label Borders) plus the XL Label Die.  I also used the same PK set (Monster Mash) to heat emboss the three different faces on the black cardstock. I used the Martha Stewart drippy goo punch and then added some ribbon from my stash on top. I added some faux stitching with my white jelly roll pen.


Thanks for looking!! Hugs, Leanne

I've also decided to enter this into Mary's challenge at Cardz TV!

Trick or Treat!


Hey! I hope everyone has gotten off to a great start this week! I have my first appointment with the MS doctor tomorrow. It seems like I've had to wait forever. You won't hear me say this often but I'm so ready for this appointment! I've got a ton of questions of hoping to have them all answered!!

I'd like to share with you a Halloween card I made! I've used the svg file, Spooky Friends from SVG Attic! This is such a cute file! It has 9 different characters and can be purchased for $5.99! I used the cute little mummy for my card! I added googly eyes and I also did some shading with my copics. The little spiders (I know I probably went a "little" overboard with them hee hee) are from a punch I got out of the dollar bin at Joann's. The background shape is cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge. I used the drippy goo punch from Martha Stewart up at the top. I used the stamp set Mixed Holiday Sentiments by My Creative Time for my sentiment. The fence is also another Martha Stewart punch. I also added tons of faux stitching!! I used Helmar's ZapDot's underneath the mummy to pop him up! Here's a picture from the side so you can see him popped up!


Be sure to head over to SVG Attic and check out all the cute SVG's!! Thanks for looking and I hope you have a great day!! Hugs, Leanne

Halloween Treat Bags!


***If your looking for MCT October Stamp Release Blog Hop please SCROLL down***

Happy Saturday everyone! We woke to our first freeze warning here in Alabama. Brrr it was COLD!! But as the day went on it warmed up and actually turned out to be a gorgeous day! The hubs and I went to Best Buy today. I broke down and purchased Adobe PhotoShop Elements 10. I'm thinking I may have to go back to college to work this program hee hee! I know it's going to take some time learning thats for sure. I miss my little glow that I was putting around my pictures sniffle, sniffle. If this program does it I haven't figured out how! Oh well, I'm just soooo not good with change. Does anyone know Bill Gates from MicroSoft (any blood relatives out there????) If so, please tell him to come out with a newer version of MicroSoft Picture It!! I want it back!!

Ok, nuff whining (or at least I will wait till I'm finished with this post lol) I have some cute little treat bags to share with you today! I've had these made for a little while I just have not took pictures of them till now. I figured I better, the candy I have in them is slowly disappearing lol! I used Mini Monsters and the Imagine cartridges, Lori's Garden and Imagine More Cards for the pattern paper.


The pattern paper here is from Imagine More Cards. I used Emma's All Around Halloween for the sentiment.


For the bat treat bag, the pattern paper is from Lori's Garden. I also used Emma's All Around Halloween stamp set for this one to! I also added some googly eyes and some stitching!

I had started making these before I got sick. I was going to make them for all my girls in Bunco. It was suppose to be my turn to host Bunco at my house in October but I switched for December. Now I need to come up with some cute things for them for Christmas any ideas? Well, that's it for me today!! I hope everyone enjoys their weekend! Hugs, Leanne

My Creative Times October Stamp Release Blog Hop!!


If you have arrived from Glora's blog then you are on the right path but if not to start from the beginning head to Emma's blog!!

Hey everyone!! I hope you have enjoyed this week of sneaky peeks! I just love this release and I believe you will to! I'm loving my new computer! I spent yesterday afternoon getting it and my new printer all set up! The only thing I'm disappointed with is my photo program (what I edit my pictures with) doesn't work with this one sniff, sniff.  In a panic, I emailed my pictures (after I finally found a free photo program to use online) to Emma to fix for me! It was probably older than my computer was lol! I am now going to have to buy one so any suggestions on what you use I'd love to hear! I was using Micro Soft Picture It (2000 lol) It was such a simple program to use and all the ones I have been researching looks sooo hard! So if you know any that you can recommend please let me know!!

Ok, sorry to ramble hee hee!! Today I'm using the All Around Birthday Time set. This works perfectly with Emma's Scallop & Stitched Circle Die! Here is the full set..



I used Birthday Bash and the cricut Imagine cartridge Berries and Cream for my card. I added some bling to the bows and also some faux stitching around the presents. I used Emma's die, Scallop and Stitched circles to stamp my sentiment on. The sentiment is actually stamped with some purple ink but looks black in the photo :( I also used another one of the new release sets, Cherish This Moment...


Here is a picture of my card from the side. I've added Helmar's ZapDots under the presents (love these lol)


 Thank you everyone for the comments you left on my sneaky peeks this week! They were all sooo sweet and greatly appreciated!! Here's some more exciting news for you!

***GIVEWAY ALERT***
For my giveway today, I am giving away this set I showcased today on my blog~ which is "All Around Birthday Time"! All you have to do is leave me a comment here & you will have until Sunday @ midnight to do so! EASY PEASY!!! GOOD LUCK!:)

Hello!! Today is day #3 of the stamp release! So..what you thinking so far??? Are you getting excited?!?! Just two more days!! 

Today we are featuring a set called XL Label Borders! So those of you that have the XL Label die this is a MUST have lol!! Those of you that don't have it I'm sure you will want it after today's sneaky peeks!!

Here's the picture of my project again...


I wish I could make my photos bigger! I'm not sure why I can't :( I had so much fun making this witches hat! For my hat I used a SVG file from SVG Attic called Happy Haunt Halloween Party Kit. Jessica has some really awesome svgs! If you haven't checked out her store you really should! I'm sure you will find her svg files are to die for hee hee! My paper is by My Mind's Eye and the name of the paper stack is Haunted. LOVE this stack (love it so much I'm having a hard time letting go of it lol) 


Here I've used Emma's X-Large Label die and one of the border stamps from the stamp set. I'm sorry I am not sure where I got the svg file for the witch. I was cleaning up my svg folders and ran across it . Behind the label I've made a rosette and behind that is the left over piece when I was cutting out my brim for the hat! I also used Emma's, Mixed Holiday Sentiments for the October 31st. The spiders are some that I had left over from Halloween a few years back. 

For my flowers, I used a McGill punch for the black rose and for the other two they were made using the cricut cartridge, Flower Shoppe.

C-ya back here tomorrow for Day #4 sneak peeks!! Thanks for looking and be sure to head over to Emma's!Hugs, Leanne

Good morning and welcome back to MCT sneak peek week! Today we are featuring the cutest set called, All Around Accessories! Your going to LOVE these! The set includes 6 hand drew images by Emma and they are absolutely adorable!! For my card, I used the snowman!
Ok, lets get started with my project! I have TONS of photos to share with you! (This was a little hard to get good pictures sorry) I used the Cricut Project Cartridge, Sweet Tooth Boxes to make this triangle box you can find on page 9. I cut this at 9 1/4. I printed out my pattern paper on the Imagine using the Snow Angel cartridge but then I used my Expression to actually do the cutting.

I just love the bow that was also included with this box! The flower was made using the Cricut Project Cartridge, Flower Shoppe. I used a button from my stash and then I also sprayed it with glimmer mist. The green glitter chipboard flourishes came from Joann's dollar bin and I've had them for awhile!



Here's a closer picture of my flower! I think it turned out pretty cute hee hee!


 Here I used Emma's X-Large Label die and stamped the cute snowman. I did some paper piecing for his hat, scarf, and buttons. I used my copic markers to color his stick arms & nose then I added some shadowing around him.

Here's another look from the front of the box. I really tried to get one of it with the lid open but they kept coming out way to dark (?) so I kinda gave up on that lol! This will be perfect to give my neighbor with some cupcakes (she loves sweets hee hee)

Well, that's my project for today!! I can't wait to see what Emma and the other DT made using this set! I just love sneaky peek week!! C-ya back here tomorrow! Hugs, Leanne

Hello! Welcome to day one of MCT sneaky peeks! Wow! Ya'll are in for a treat this week!! Emma has outdid herself again! I just love October's release and I'm sure you will to!! 
For our first sneak peek, we are using the set Cherish The Moment. It's one that I'm sure you will want to get right away! For all the solid and pattern paper I used the Imagine and the Imagine cartridge, Kate's Kitchen except for the yellow polka dot paper (it's a scrap piece) from Enjoy The Season. I used From the Kitchen for the pie and added a cute peachy keen face. The bow that I added to the cherry is a Martha Stewart punch and then added a blue gem to the center. The hearts are from the loaded images on the Imagine. I added glossy accents to the hearts, the cherry, and also to the plate that the pie is sitting on. I've also added lots of faux stitching. I'm still not real sure I'm pleased with this card! There's ALOT of could of should of''s going on hee hee! 


Be sure to head over to Emma's and see what she and the rest of the DT did using this awesome set!! Thanks for looking and I will see you back here tomorrow for day #2 sneaky peeks!! Hugs, Leanne

Eek!! A Day Late!!

Hey everyone! I'm a day late in posting my project for SVG Attic :(  I had every intentions on getting something posted yesterday but I wound up with a killer headache for most of the day and tried sleeping it off! But even tho I'm a day late I still  wanted to share this cute svg set, Thankful Friends by SVG Attic! Isn't this little scarecrow girl the cutest!! This set has 9 adorable characters! If you haven't visited the store your in for a treat! Jessica's svg file's are AMAZING! So what you waiting for head over there NOW hee hee!!

I also wanted to play along with Peachy Keen's challenge #62. It's to create a card or layout using this sketch...

I used my Imagine and the Imagine cartridge, Enjoy The Seasons for the paper. For her face, I used Peachy Keen's #450 Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment. The sentiment is from My Creative Time set, Mixed Holiday Sentiments and I stamped it on My Creative Time's stitched oval die. I used a Martha Stewart border punch and then added some twine.  Here's another picture from the side...

Thanks for looking and I'm sending you ALL a Harvest of good wishes!!  Hugs, Leanne

Monday Madness - Imagine That!!

Happy Monday!!! Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend! This weekend has been one of my best weekends in awhile! I am actually starting to feel human again lol! I also was able to get out of the house!!  I will say I did kinda over do it Saturday and was completely wiped out Sunday but boy was it fun! I got to go shopping which I haven't done in a month! I went to all my favorite scrappy stores of course! I did good and didn't buy anything at Joann's but Hobby Lobby well lets just say I didn't make it out empty handed! I was really impressed with Hobby Lobby! They have gotten lots of new things in and some things I have been wanting for awhile. I don't know if that's good or bad. I had finally gotten to the point I could go in and just get things I had ran out of but now I've got me a wish list a mile long hee hee! 
Welcome to "Monday Madness....Imagine That" at My Creative Time! Since October is Breast Cancer awareness month Emma wanted us to base our projects on that and also to use our Imagines. I am using Emma's stamp set, Race For A Cure. This is such a great stamp set! I just love the font Emma used! The words are so pretty and this set can be used for so many other occasion's not just for breast cancer.

Ok, let me get on with the details of my card....The pattern paper is from Lori's Garden Imagine cartridge. I printed it on some kraft cardstock. The bird and the bird cage is also from Lori's Garden. The little banner (well that's what I'm calling it hee hee) was a boo boo. I was trying to cut the layers out on the bird cage and don't really know what I did but just know it wasn't right lol! I didn't want to throw it away so I used it to stamp my sentiment on! The flower is my newest toy I picked up at Hobby Lobby (with a 40% off coupon woot woot!!) It's the rose punch set by McGill's! I've been wanting these punches like FOREVER!! It was very time consuming but so fun to put together! It's not showing up so well in the picture but the petals was inked with pink Memento ink and I then spritz it with some sparkle Tsukineko mist so it's all sparkly!! I used Helmar's ZapDot's to add dimension to the bird and also to the bird cage. Here is a picture from the side...


Well, that about covers it all! I've got several new Imagine cartridges and can't wait to start playing with my Imagine again! Be sure to head over to Emma's to see what she and my other talented design team sisters have made! Thanks for looking and hope you have a awesome week! Hugs, Leanne

I also want to link up with Yolie at JustYolie, JustCreate for the Link Up For Pink! For all the details on this wonderful challenge and prizes click here!

MCT Design Team Thursday!!!

Happy Thursday!! Wow, its so good to be posting something crafty lol! I can't begin to tell you how much I have missed playing in my craft room! I've been having withdrawels hahahaha!! I've also missed using Emma's awesome stamps so since it's my scheduled Thursday I had to try to make a little something! We were to make anything but a card and here is what I've come up with using the Whimsical Calendar Days set.

I've been drinking lots of juices lately. My diet Mt. Dew just doesn't taste right anymore (which really blows I loved my diet Mt. Dew lol) My hubby picked me up some orange pineapple juice at the store in these little bottles the other day for me to try (by the way they are awesome hee hee) I'm sure they are not the healthest but they were really good! I thought it would be cute to try to alter one! I used some paper from the Jeepers Creepers paper stack by The Paper Studio that I picked up a couple of months ago at Hobby Lobby and haven't got to use yet. Love this stack (sorry you can't tell much about it in the photo but it has some awesome paper in it) I used the frame stamp and also Emma's die that coordinates with it, the XL label die. The stamp I used inside is from the dollar bin at Joann's and I used my copics to color it in. I stamped it on some kraft cardstock from Joann's. I tried painting the cap with some acrylic paint but that didn't work out so well so I used Helmar's Craft Glue and glued some ribbon around. For the very top of the cap I cut a circle from the pattern paper and then stamped a little pumpkin from Emma's, All Around Halloween set and filled it with stickles. I sent hubs to the dollar store to find some candy to fill it with and he came back with candy corn which I think was a great choice (go hubs lol) Well, that's it for my little altered bottle! Thanks for looking and I hope you like! Have a great day and hope to have something else soon to show you! Hugs, Leanne

Funny how life throws curve balls....

Good morning! I'm sorry it's been such a long time since I've made a post. I haven't forgotten you I promise! I also want to thank you for hanging in with me because I've been so scared since I haven't done anything I would lose followers so thank you for sticking around! I've just now got to where I'm halfway able to write up this post so it still may be short.

I also want to thank everyone sooooooooo much for the gorgeous cards and flowers they have meant so much to me and my hubby has even gotten excited when I got one in the mail! I have them all on display and look at them everyday. I am so blessed! I can defintely tell you first hand, cards DO make a difference and will put a smile on your face! So if you ever question if sending one makes a difference it does! When I can I will be mailing out more cards!

I have been diagnosed with ms and I'm not going to lie the last few weeks have been horrible. I've been in the hospital but I'm now home. When they did all the tests they have found two lesions on the critical part of my brain which is why they said everything has went haywired or the symptoms are worse but they are assuring me after all the steroids they have pumped in me that things will improve. I'll be honest I'm terrified but I am starting to deal with it a little better. It's the unknown that is scaring me but I'm going to do my very best to fight this with a positive attitude. I have battled crohns for 22 years and they told me I could fight this to!

I will be glad when I am able to get in my craft room and play. I miss it soooo bad. I will admit I have tried but everytime I start something I get so sick at my stomach I have to stop so I'm not pushing it. I just keep saying over and over to myself it will get better, it will get better lol! So, I'm going to have to get off now but just know I have not forgotten my blog or you and hopefully will be back up and running before long! Hugs,Leanne
