Squirrel Thanksgiving Card

Hello, everyone!  I can't believe Thanksgiving is around the corner.  Can you?  

This past week, the DT over at has been featuring cards made with her wonderful stamps!  

When Cricut came out with Create A Critter2, I just HAD to have it! I love the images, especially this squirrel! 

He was the first thing I thought of when I saw this stamp.  It's from Joy's It's All Fall Puns set.  If you don't already have it, you can grab your own set here.

With all the holidays coming up, I think this says it all.  Our family usually has a large get together.  It's loud and fun!  

This card is 4.25" x 5.5".  I used Bazzill paper as the base.  Both yellow and brown background papers were printed with my Imagine from the Enjoy The Seasons cartridge.  The frame is one of the basic shapes on the Imagine and I filled it with the yellow pattern from Enjoy The Seasons. I added some glitter to both of the acorns to add some flair.

Well, I am the last post of the week for the Design Team.  We'll be taking off next week to be with our families. 

 I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Joys Life Tags and Bags Blog Hop begins today!

Hello, friends!  Glad you could join us for Joy's Tags & Bags Blog Hop!  

  If you came over from June, then you are in the right place.  If you happened to stumble across this post and want to start at the beginning, you can do so here.

I have to say, I was stumped on what to make for this hop.  I actually made a bag using my Imagine but then changed my mind.  (maybe I'll post that pic later)  Lots of brainstorming, scrapped projects, and then I saw this cute SVG and knew it was what I wanted to make.

This stamp is from Joy's Yummy Puns set.  I like that the saying can be used in different ways.

Once I decided what paper I wanted to use, it was a quick project.  I used my Cameo to cut out the purse that I got from My Scrap Chick. The holly and berries are a Sizzix die and the paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle's Wonder Wishes collection.  The ribbon I used was also something I've had in my stash for YEARS! 
I've got some nieces and co-workers that I think would get a kick out of these purses.

*** Now how about some Blog Candy??? ***

I'm going to give away Joy's newest stamp set, Oh Christmas Puns, to a lucky hopper!

Thanksgiving Tag

Hello, everyone! Today, I've got a tag for you  for Joy's Life's Design Team blog

 For this project, I decided to put my Cricut and Silhouette aside and just use my Cuttlebug. I got this wonderful die with leaves at my LSS for a steal! Glad I got to use it so soon after purchasing it. 

The fun saying comes from Joy's It's All Fall Puns set.  If you don't have yours yet, you can purchase it here.

I kept this tag simple and like how it came out. These would be easy to mass produce and attach to treat bags, or whatever goodies you come up with.  
And don't forget...

 coming this Monday, we'll be hosting a Tags & Bags hop starting at  Hope you can join us!
