Love Me a Cup of Coffee Blog Candy!

I have a new image to show you!!  As many of you already know, I love coffee!!  I cannot go without it!  I thought it would be fun to make a ‘to go’ cup of coffee with a sweet coffee  sleeve  around it.  I love all the different style cozies that you can buy on ETSY, and I’ve  purchased a few for my coffee drinking  friends over the years.   There is a cute one I’ve had my eye on available from SEWDARNCHIC!

My Memories Suite Software Review and Giveaway

Hi!  I’m excited about sharing this with you today!   I have not done much scrapbooking in the past, aside from a few pages when my boys were babies.  I found that it took too much of my time.  Anyone with me on that point?  I found that card making gave me  instant gratification for my creative needs and I kind of gave up on scrapbooking.  I always felt bad about it though, since I have all these fabulous photos that I am not doing anything with!  They can’t all be framed and hung on a wall right?! So, with that said, when I was asked to review the digital scrapbooking software My Memories Suite, I saw it as a great opportunity to see if  digital scrapbooking would be a faster and easier option for me than traditional scrapbooking. I have not  previously used digital scrapbooking software, other than playing around with Photoshop (which I was mostly frustrated with), and I found My Memories Suite to be very intuitive and user friendly by design.  I …

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas…

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house  Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse;  The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,  In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there;  The children were nestled all snug in their beds,  While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads; excerpt of poem by  Clement Clarke Moore, or possibly, as the claim has also been made, Henry Livingston, Jr. The Challenges that helped me make this  card: Simon Says Stamp Challenge: photo inspiration (stockings) For Your Inspiration: photo inspiration (colors) The Stamping Boutique– Christmas no traditional colors Paper Crafting Journey– Christmas Celebrate the Occasion– Christmas no green Cute Card Thursday– Anything goes Make it Mondays– always anything goes linky comment party! I have some NEW IMAGES available !  I am so excited about these as I was so in the Christmas spirit when I drew them!   I really hope you like them too. The first is my new image “All snug in their Beds”  that I’ve used in my card above.  I …

Here Comes Santa Claus!

I had some time on Sunday to play in the VSN challenges over on Splitcoaststampers. What fun challenges they had! I am so glad I played as I also got 3 more Christmas cards done ! I used my newest  A Creative Need image “Santa’s Hat and Sleigh Bell”  and colored it with copics. I added some fun flock to the fur and also the snowflake embellishment; I think it looks so festive!  The background is embossed with snowflakes using the cuttlebug.  The sentiment is from Flourishes “Sweets of the Season”. Here’s a close up of the glitter and flocking: If you missed it, I’m having a little contest giveaway:  A FREEBIE OF ANY ONE IMAGE FROM MY SHOP if I choose your idea for my next image!  I’ll give you the image that you had the idea for too! SO that’s 2 images for free! All you have to do is leave me your idea of any image you would like to see me draw up next!  I love to hear your ideas and …

New Images, A Mini Contest Giveaway and a Holiday Sale!

Wow, how time flies!  We are already into our second week of November and I’ve even started my Christmas shopping for the boys!  Have you started shopping yet?  I hate to wait until the last minute, so I try to get it done in November and then December is for preparing and baking etc.  I hate crowds and really try to avoid the shopping centers!   I actually do a lot of my shopping online and it saves me time, effort and money. Shipping costs don’t seem so high when you consider the gas money you spend running from mall to mall, not to mention the value you can put on your time saved.   I value my time more than anything!! Speaking of saving some money…I’m having a Holiday Sale on my Digital images at A CREATIVE NEED this WEEKEND Nov. 11-14th! Use coupon code: DIGIWEEKENDSALE during the check out process and you will automatically get 15% off your purchase(s)!! NEW RELEASE Christmas Images!
