Pumpkin Place Card Holders

Hello, My creative friends!  Well, it is Friday night and I finally have a few moments to get my Craft MOJO  I decided to make little place holder cards for my sister for this Thanksgiving.  Since it is at her house this year, I wanted to create something cute and help her out.  I am cooking a few dishes too.....but anyone who knows me, knows that really isn't helping out...LOL (I'm not the best cook around. LOL)
Anyhoo, I whipped these up real fast using a Silhouette Store Pumpkin Place Card File.  I added each of the members of our family to the cards and Print and Cut them.  Hoila!  It was truly that easy.  The only thing I had to glue was the little green stem.  In fact, I think I'll add some glitter or stickles to those stems just to add a little bling!
Happy Friday, Y'all! :)
I am entering these cute little place holders for Thanksgiving Dinner at the Challenges website.  Click the link above and join in on the ANYTHING HOLIDAY challenge.
And I am also entering this project into the THANKSGIVING Challenge over at  Another fun challenge to join in on!  Come join in on the fun! :)

Challenge #4 "Shaped Card" Week 3 - Entry #3

Hello My Creative Friends!  Okay, so I made this card for a friend that I haven't seen since I started back at work and I don't want her to think she has been forgotten.  So I made this tiny little shaped Strawberry Card from a Free file from Niki (sorry I can't remember the website address).  I've had the file for quite a while now.   I am happy with the way it came out. So come on over to Silhouette Challenges and join in the fun.
These are the days, I just LOVE my Cameo!  Quick little projects in no time at all.  Print and Cut the Strawberry and put a pop dot to attach it to the shaped strawberry card underneath!  Love the efficiency of these projects! :)

My Creative Time Designer Challenge- Black & White Only

I made this card for a friend of mine who put a workout together for me and laminated it, then she even put a ring through the pages to keep it together with ribbon!  It was adorable.  I love it!  Anyhoo, so I made this thank you card for her!  I hope she likes it.  I used the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Free Trifold Card file from this week.  I also used the My Creative Time, Many Greetings Stamp set for the sentiment on the inside.  I'm sorry the second picture is sideways.  I can't figure out how to turn in in this blog.  On my computer it is right, but when I upload it, it comes out like this.  Why?  I hate my lack of knowledge on a computer!  Anyway, I am so thrilled with the way it came out! :)

Challenge #4 "Shaped Card" Week 3 - Entry #2

Hello, My creative friends!  Well, I made this card for a friend of mine who has been coming to my classroom to help me out.  LOVE HER!  I used the Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons Freebie file from last week.  The clipboard was just so fitting.  I mirrored it to the left and then welded it together to make the card shape.  I used Emma's All Around Everything and Accessories Stamp Set.  Then I hot glued a See's Candy Lollipop as a little thank you.  Simple and Cute!  Want her to know how much she is appreciated! :)

You can join in the fun too!  Come on over to  and display the shaped card you made using your Cameo. :) (Clipboard file)  (stamps)

A simple, sweet, and thoughtful gift to let my friend know she is not forgotten during this "Ruff" time.  It only took minutes to make. :)

MCT Designer Challenge-Bling It Up

I had sooo much fun using my new stamp set (I got it for my birthday) from my Bestie called You're Brilliant from My Creative Time.  So much fun!  So the challenge is to bling it up.  I decided to use the same format as Emma did in her project by sewing the border of the card for stitching and then blinging up my die cut.  I used the little light bulb.  It is so cute.  But after looking at Emma's site again, I realized, I didn't exactly use the lightbulb correctly.  LOL  But I still think my cards turned out cute! :)  I used the Echo Park, Hello Summer paper pack and the colors are so bright and cheery!  Love them! :)  Okay, so I couldn't just include one card in this post, I had to include all the different ways I did the light bulb to bling it up.  When you comment, tell me your favorite.  My six year old son, had the idea to put googly eyes on them and I totallly loved it!  I think those are my favorite. :)  Happy Monday everyone. :)
