Halloween Wreath

Happy Tuesday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have a special kit project to share with you.  It's straight from the new Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog.  This Frightful Wreath Simply Created Kit made the list for my top ten Holiday Catalog items.  The minute I saw it at convention.....I was all over it.  Let me share this little cutie with you.
This boo-tiful wreath comes together in a SNAP......and couldn't look any cutie hanging on my front door.
Not only does the kit come with this super fun black tinsel, that completely covers the wreath base.....
But it also comes with a darling silver glimmer paper spider web that get's attached right over the top of the black tinsel.
But it also comes with  a starburst rosette center.......
And a kit to complete this frightfully adorable purple spider.
This kit was such a hit that I have one ordered and on the way to my granddaughter Hailey.  Just know she is going to have a blast making this for her front door.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you some boxes I made using the new Gift Box Punch Board from Stampin' UP! .......... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Kinda Eclectic Card

Saddle-UP! Reply

Happy Sunday My Blogger Friends!
Today I have a darling little card I received from my good friend Ann.  She was registering for my upcoming Saddle-UP! event on October 18th........And she used her Western dies to create this cute message for me. 
I have typed in "BOLD" the words for each of her die-cuts.........
It reads......Kadie, "Hat's" off to you!  You always "Speer" me on........
to make "bootiful" cards.
You always "Trigger" my imagination.  I feel so "Lucky" to be able to attend your Saddle-UP! Event.
Now how cute is that!   Without a doubt........Ann hit her registration for my Saddlle-UP! Event out of the park.  Thanks Ann for making this extra special card for me.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you a card I received from my upline Lisa Pretto .......... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Mighty Kind of You!

Happy Saturday My Blogger Friends!

Today I'm busy cutting and packaging up my September Stamp Camp........So needless to say......I'm at a FULL RUN!  I have another Yee-Haw card to share with you......I'm jumping right in with my card share.
This card came together in a snap.......with the help of just five Stampin' UP! ink colors.
I first grabbed some Crumb Cake cardstock and stamped the sentiment and woodgrain flag with Early Espresso ink.  I then used my banner framelits and cut out two different sizes of banner flags.
My wire image was stamped with Smoky Slate ink.......
And my star images were stamped with Daffodil Delight, Old Olive.......
And Soft Sky ink.
This card was completed in no time flat!

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share with you an extra special Saddle-UP! reply I received .......... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Hooray Card

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
Well to say that I've met myself coming as I'm going the last couple of days would be an under-statement.  I actually ran into myself yesterday.  I will be sharing lots of new card projects with you soon........But for today.............it's one more card from the Yee-Haw set.  Let's jump right in with that share.
Here's a fun little 3x3 card that I made.
I stamped the "Hooray" sentiment three times.  I used Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight and Real Red ink for each of my three "Hooray" sentiments.
I used Crumb Cake cardstock for my base card and used the Woodgrain stamp (with Crumb Cake ink) over the front of my base card.
Just love how this 3x3 notecard turned out.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share another Yee-Haw card with you .......... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Sheriff's Pouch

Happy Wednesday My Blogger Friends!
How about another fun project using the new Yee-Haw stamp set from Stampin' UP!  Today I have a special little burlap bag project to share with you.  Check this little cutie out........
I used one of the Stampin' UP! Burlap Bags to act as the base for my super darling Sheriff tag.
I stamped the Sheriff badge image onto Whisper White cardstock.....Using Tempting Turquoise ink.  I then grabbed my new Blendabilities and started coloring in the badge.
I stamped the Woodgrain background stamp onto some Crumb Cake cardstock and then set out to create a simple banner flag.  I used Clear Embossing Powder to bring a real WOW FACTOR look to my banner flag. 
I fussy-cut out my Sheriff badge and added it to a 1-3/4" Early Espresso circle......and added some Linen Thread around the embossed banner flag to form a fun little lasso.
I used one of the new Stampin' UP! natural clothespins to attach my banner flag to the side of my muslin bag.
Just love how this project turned out.........And can see making some more of these for my upcoming Saddle-UP! event in October.

Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back tomorrow to share one more Yee-Haw card with you .......... Hope you can make plans to stop back and join me for that share.  Keep Living Your Dream!
