Charity DT Stamp- Sneek Peek!


I am so excited to show off this set! I'd also like to take a minute to thank Laura for giving me the opportunity to help create this set and for being a part of the DT4.  I have enjoyed each and every member of the DT4, and getting to know you. Ms. Laura you are an amazing lady, and I am glad to call you friend.

An exciting new thing happened with DT4. Our team was given the opportunity to create a brand new stamp set for a charity of our choice. We have chosen Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. This charity supports the research and cure for childhood cancer. You can click on the link to find out more about their foundation.

We have named our charity stamp set "LEMONADE STAND". This set will release on Wednesday September 1st, 2010 on the Creative Clear Stamps Store website. The size of this set is 6x8 and features 20 clear stamps. The cost of this set is $20.00, of which $10.00 will be donated to the foundation throughout the month of September. The first 10 orders will receive a free secret bonus item with their purchase.

The Creative Clear Stamps Store will be closed  tomorrow Tuesday August 31, to prepare for some changes to the site before the release. A new rewards program is headed our way!

Here is my sneak peek of this set!

This first card I made for my friend that is going through breast cancer treatment right now. I gave this to her a couple of weeks ago with a meal. She is a really sweet lady, and my neighbor. Please pray for her, she is a true gift of a friend.

The next set is also for her, I will be delivering it tomorrow. It has a card, a homemade body scrub that is Lemonade-Tea Scrub, and a little notes clip so she can attach doctors appointment cards to it.  I think she will enjoy it!

I hope you enjoy this and enjoy the rest of the hop! This is such a great cause and I would love to see them get a lot of donation from this set. 

Thanks for hopping by and don't forget to order your "LEMONADE STAND" during the month of September and help us find a cure for childhood cancer!

CUPIECAKES - Fun challenge & FREE DIGI!


WOOT! Hubby will be home this evening! I have really missed him! :-)

Today I am sharing one of MANY cupcake projects you will be seeing over the next couple of weeks. (My son's girlfriend, who happens to be one of my best friends daughter has a birthday in September, she will be 16 and she LOVES cupcakes!) The first little project is a bookmark...I had to remove the top of this one, due to the fact it is a bookmark and would not survive the beating I am sure it will take! 

Next I worked on her gift bag, I am thinking I will add HEY CUPEYCAKE words to the top...still thinking on that, but the giant cupcake is so flippin' cute! 

So do you like that CUPCAKE????  Isn't it ADORABLE! and the DIGI is FREE! Thats right....FREE! 2 Cute Rubber Stamps is running a little 2 Cute challenge, and it runs to Sept 6th! So you better move it and go, get your FREE DIGI, and CREATE! :-) ha!

Who knows you may win some more of their super cute stamps! You should check out there stuff!

Enjoy your weekend!

Happy Thursday Chica's!

Hope today is finding you getting to craft a little! I have twelve cards here to share with you today...YEA! you read that right TWELVE!

I signed up for a little swap over on SCS. The goal was to use all scraps, except from your base and embellies! Lets just say I have enough scraps to back 1000 more! (rolling my eyes) SERIOUSLY! I just can't seem to get rid of some of those papers!

Hope you enjoying seeing what I came up with for each card, as they are all different!

TA TA! Enjoy your weekend!

Good morning everyone!

I have a quick card this morning to show you. I used my cuttlebug folder in my big shot to emboss the base, an SU border punch to run across the center, cut the small stamped piece with my cricut, punched the circle with my SU circle scalloped punch and used a MS flower punch for the center....I love this sentiment, don't we always have people in our lives we are SO PROUD of!!! This CCS sentiment can be used for so many job, graduation, passing a test, getting a promotion....the list goes on and on!

Thanks for stopping by.
Enjoy your Monday!

Thursday...some true Faithfulness!

Hello Gals,
God has shown true faithfulness and love to our family yesterday. He showed that he still does miracles! My nephew (18) rolled his truck on his way to see my Dad...(My Dad and Momma M live in the MIDDLE of NO WHERE...LITERALLY!) My Nephew is leaving for College Friday morning and was going to see Dad before he began his college journey. His truck is totalled, he is really beat up, but Lord God Praise you! He is alive and no major damage! Seeing the truck site and hearing the details from the Department of Public safety, he is safe and a home tonight! A true miracle!!! Love those you love today, forgive those you haven't! Life is to short to take that chance!

Now on to my projects, I created these for a SCS swap I was in for Rolodex cards. You place the Rolodex cards in a holder and these make great gifts for friends and family, they are great devotions for bedrooms, offices, desks, etc...

I hope you enjoy these!

Blessings to each of you...I am thankful for each one of you who visit me here everyday.

Happy Birthday to ME! :-)

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me...

Happy Birthday to me! :-)  

Did you enjoy that?

Hey I figure if I have to get older I should embrace it right?!

So I got to create a little last night...WOOT! Dear hubby had to leave for out of town job again :( (sigh...booo!) (But hey it does pay the bills!$) He was really sad that he would not be here with me for my Bday! He has been with me the last 15 of them! :-) Oh well, I will get to celebrate with him this weekend, as he is working at a place on the river, so I am leaving on Friday to go up there and we will celebrate then!

So on to WHAT I created....

I used the MOJO MONDAY sketch.

I also want to play in the Challenge over at Stampin Sisters in Christ....its a great challenge, this week it is based on the
Proverbs 17:22 "A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."
The challenge was to create a card that was "clean" and makes you laugh! Laughter is such a great blessing the Lord has given us! Our Great Physician is such a kind and giving God to have given us such a gift!
 So laugh a little its at yourself or with someone else! 
HEY, I AM A YEAR OLDER TODAY....I need all the miracles and healing I can get! (hehe)

Have a happy, fun filled Tuesday!

JOY is giving away a cutting board, and chances to win a Workbox! The Workbox had been around for a while, but this month a shipment of New Limited Edition Workboxes in four different styles of wood is on its way.



HIP HIP HOORAY! Happy Monday!

What do you think about Hunny Bear?

He is just adorable, huh?!!! I so love the balloons, and his happy little smile! 

I figured today I would post a Birthday tag (mine is tomorrow!:0) using HIP HIP HOORAY
I used Hunny Bear on the front of the tag, with the "Just for you" sentiment, on the I chose the "hip hip hooray birthday" circle for the back. I used my pearlesant water colors to color everything, added some flock to Hunny's belly, some buttons, stardust pen to outline the balloons and package, some pebbles to spruce up the buttons & blue balloon, a bit of stickles and several fun ribbons! 

I think I will give this little jewel to my best friends daughter on her package, as her Birthday is Wednesday! :-) She will love it!

Tags are quick and fun...go get some Creative Clear Stamps and start making some tags! ;-)

This little project was also created with Clear Dollar Stamps August Challenge in mind. "Cute and Fuzzy!"

Make the most of your week...see ya next Monday!

A HOT Monday & A BIG Birthday weekend!

Happy HOT Monday! :-)

We are getting some major heat here in Texas now that August has arrived! WHEW! I mean like 102 in the shade! If you are getting this heat, stay hydrated and get as much AC as you can, it can be great for the swimming pool, but really bad if you don't take some cooling breaks!!

Today I am showing off a couple of the little projects I made for my nephews birthday's! Two turned 21 & the other one turned 19 this weekend! We had a swimming party which was a great family fun!

Each one got a little tote, with different theme types as to what they like, two of them love to hunt, so here is one of the totes with a tag attached, I used the "Deer Hunting" stamps from CCS for the deer tracks, then the Happy Birthday Happy came from the "Hip Hip Hooray" set. This set is so super versatile, and I love the honey bear that it has, so I can color, but the nephews ages just would not allow for that! LOL The other is a little pocket tag card which I did to match another one of the totes (not pictured here) But I also used the same two sets...they are just so perfect!

FYI: Are thinking about Christmas and the upcoming Holiday's? Go check out some the sets Laura has on sale! They are a real deal!

See ya next Monday, till then...Happy craftin'!

Hopefully I can do tomorrows Mojo Monday, tomorrow afternoon and post it on Tuesday! :-) Thank would be wishful thinking with things around here lately, but we can always hope!

So here is what I created, using scraps...yes scraps! WOW! I embossed the base card then followed the sketch. Go go give it a try! They are really fun, and this weeks sketch was great.

My Soul MATE!

Hello Gals!
How is everyone on this bright and beautiful MONDAY Morning! hehe!

Well, I love technology and the Internet, but being on again off again ALL weekend was not my idea of fun! I could not even preloaded this post or any others! GRRR

Enough of my whinny self! Onto my card.

I made this card for my sweet hubby who will be leaving out of town again next week, and I am so gonna miss him! I don't tell him enough how much I really appreciate all he does and how hard he works, so I thought this card would be spot on!

The stamps are from the Creative Clear Stamps set called True Love. I used a little bling, a Martha Stewart Border punch, stamped on my glue pad, embossed with ZING red embossing powder and added punched hearts with some red and polka dot ribbon. I think he will love it!

Have a super day!
