Valentine's Subway Art

I realize that it isn't Valentine's, but I just this this Subway art is too great not to share!  I look at it as getting a head start on next year!

You can see it at this website:

Crafting Like Crazy!

I have been having a crafting streak!  My sons school is asking for things for teachers that they can give to them next week for Teacher Appreciation.  It is raffle style, so since I am not sure that my kids teachers will get the items, I went generic.  That doesn't mean boring!  I have caught the 'free printable' bug and can't get enough of these adorable pieces of art that are available on blogs.  So here are the two that I am giving to the teachers:

I got these frames at WalMart for a great deal!  I thought these would make great additions to their classrooms or homes. 

(I didn't print these on my printer.  I took the files on a flash drive to FedEx and had them printed.  They look so great!)

You can get these amazing printables here and here  WARNING!! These sites are addictive!! ;)

Of course as I was browsing, I found more that I loved, so I printed more.  I only had 2 more frames, so I will have to get more soon so I can display these beauties!  Here are the ones I wanted to display right now:

I just love these!  I got them here and here

My son's Boy Scout troop is having a fundraiser in a couple of weeks and they wanted families to make things to be auctioned off.  So I made 2 pillows for that.  Here they are:

The back:

Hopefully someone will want to bid on them! 

Thanks for looking!  Love to know what you think.  Have a creative day!!

ColourQ Challenge #132

I have had a very exciting week!  I was chosen as a courtier last week, which is always wonderful!  Thanks again so much! Then my family and I went to Las Vegas for a getaway.  We were only gone 3 days but it was so nice to have a break from reality!  We don't gamble, so we find other activites like roller coasters, swimming and malls.  We had a great time!

I thought this week's colors at ColourQ looked really fun!  Here they are:

Here is my card:

I got this Preserves Cricut Cartridge awhile ago and have wanted to use it.  I thought it would be fun to go simple this week!  These colors are just so fun!  Thanks for looking.  I love to know what you think!  Have a creative day!

ColourQ Challenge #131

I hope you are all having a great week!  Here are the super soft colors for the CQC challenge this week:

These are amazing colors and I was super excited to create with them!

The card I made was WAY time consuming (took a long time to design), but I am thrilled with how it turned out:

I wanted to try 'curling' my organza ribbon for a soft, pretty effect.  I like how it turned out.  I just happened to have all of these ribbon colors in my stash!  I made it so they come from the back of the card over the top and to a point on the bottom.  This was not easy, but I finally got it on the card! 

I got this Scalloped Frame punch (EK Success) at JoAnn's a couple of week ago and have been wanting to make a card with it.  I really love it.  I wanted to add some flowers and so I thought it would make the perfect 'wreath' background. 

I love to know what you think, so leave a comment below.  Thanks so much for looking!  Have a creative day!

Carrot Garland

One of my friends on Pinterest pinned an adorable carrot garland from this Fiskars post.  I knew I had to make one!

Here is mine:

I used my Fiskars crimper to crimp my strips of orange cardstock before making the carrots.  I think it adds such a cute dimension! 

What do you think?

Have a creative day!
