Anyone for some Hot Chocolate...

Entered a challenge over at Susie and Vicki's Christmas Challenge. Hot Chocolate.
Here is my Hero Arts Owl that I showed you a few weeks ago. I decided to emboss him and roughin him up abit with crinkles and inked edges....I addy my homemade flower and did some ribbon design out of paper to it. I added a tag in the middel to write on. Like the hot cocoa in his wing. *giggles* was fun to make. Hope you like.

Please do not forget to pass on about my BLOG Candy... Welp~ I do not drink coffee but hot chocolate is yummy once in a while on a very cold day.
We seem to be having those alot lately...
Sooooooo ready for summer weather here...even spring weather is better then winter.
I would not survive the cold states...also my health would be shot.
I decided to make a cup card using my gypsy.
I welded the cups together to make the outside card.
Then used my Martha Stewart puncher for the mugs.
I used my cuddlebug on the star burst shape I cut with my cricut.
I added flowers and rinestones.
For an added extra but I am out of...I am adding a packet of hot chocolate to the inside.
YUMMY surprise card!
I am off tomorrow on my Scrapbook Treasure Hunt. I will be bringing my laptop but unsure if
I will have to time to post. We will see...If not I will be back on Sunday late evening or on Monday. Will miss seeing your blogs but hopefully I can get caught up.
I plan on having a wonderful time...even throwing some outlets and IKea into the mix.

Happy again...

Don't forget my blog candy on left sidebar.
Well we had the Verizon DSL guy out this morning...Our modem hit the dust...So replaced it and now up and running. Happy day!

Hope to get blog hopping later on tonight.

Let me know what you think of my origami cards below.

My Austen made an origami lizard. Whom I call Iggy.

I made a page with it...using my gypsy and cricut.

I free handed the clouds and used foam on them for a 3d look. Inked the edges blue.

Turned out pretty cute and he is happy with it also. Used blue rinestones for the eyes.

So that is all that matters...

here is the layout.
Hope everyone has a super Tuesday!
Smiles...though icky feeling still...

I was trying to put the photos in between writings and it does not work for me. If anyone knows how to help with this please let me know.

Today is my crafty fun day....Watching the boys dirtbike on the property and it being soooooo beautiful out makes is wonderful. I decided to do a sewing project while out on my deck today. It turned out okay...I suppose...Such a cute idea I found on How 2. My cupcake pin cushion.
Let me know what you think. smiles....
Please do not forget to sign up for my Blog Candy if you have not done so already.

Then I decided to browse through one of my card idea books and decided to do some simple but fun are my takes on them.

Summer Time card

A Girl can only wish it was "SUMMER TIME".
Personally I love summer weather.
So I was in the mood to do a bright and cheery card.
Image is one of Sassy Designs.
I entered into Digital-Ink Co. To me this card represents a certain part of "peace".
Too me summer is the best time of year...I love the sunshine and water.
Also entered it for 3 pieces of paper, digi and 5 embellishments over at

Gumball card

Okay~ so over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge they wanted a project with as many circles as you can without making it gaudy. So hopefully this fits the bill. I used the cricut to weld the snowglobe and turn it into a gumball machine. I then cut out all the gumballs....Used stamps to write the word "gum" and cut out the numbers with my cricut and used stickles to make them pop. It was fun to make something that kids can relate too....gumballs!
Please don't forget to check out my blog candy on the left sidebar. smiles...Tammy

Entered this for #flowers# challenge over at Instyle Stamps.
I have entered this into a challenge over at Crafty Angels.
Also entered it in another challenge which is also for the use of flowers #6 Pile it on.

I am a happy and proud mom....My youngest Colten, moved from 1st grade reading into the second grade class for his reading. So very, very proud of him. I have such smarties in my house. Straight A's has become a regular with my boys. My son Jaxten is doing the ACT this Saturday for the Duke Tip program. I could go on and on with my kiddies accomplishments. My big one will be next year. My oldest son, Presten, is 16 graduating from college with his AA and if he continues on his education path, he is as of right now is #1 on the list for Valedictorian. Not jumping the gun but God willing it will be. I will keep you posted. My Austen is feeling much better and actually did all his make up work in just a few days from two weeks missing school. He is back at his straight A's.
God has blessed me through and through ~
Welp~ I decided it would be nice to do a layout with me and my hubby.
It was fun to make...With my cricut put together flowers and glitter.
I did pretend stitching on the Laugh often. It was fun...Love my flowers too.
