My Gingerbread House and a card to share...

Hello all my fellow bloggers! I know it's been a while, things have been more than crazy for me. I barely got my Christmas shopping done this year, which is sooooo unheard of for me. Anyhoo, wanted to share some Gingerbread houses that I made for some of my friends. I got the wonderful idea from my gf, Teri.

I also wanted to share this Christmas card that I received from my gf, Brenda. She is and will always be the punch queen! Thanks Brenda for always thinking of me!

Card from my bff and a blogging break...

This adorable card was sent to me by my bff, Joy. I just wanted to let everyone know out there that I will be taking a bit of a break from blog land. Have a lot of personal stuff going on that I need to deal with...

Thank you for being such loyal followers and readers and will be back soon, hopefully. Aloha~

A bunch to share...

This pop-up gift card holder was sent to me by the very lovely Mama. Such a clever idea! Thanks Mama!

My gf asked me to make a couple simple gc holders for her two son's soccer coaches. They were the Purple Chargers. I made a pop-up gc holder of my own.

View of the inside. When you pull the flap open, the card pops up.

My daughter's school is holding a Luau fundraiser and I volunteered to make a gift card book holder for her class. I used my Bind-it-All that my bff gave me for my birthday.

The inside are a bunch of gc holders and there are little tags to write who donated them.

I wanted to share my tag that I made for the Christmas Tag Exchange.

Also, wanted to share this lovely rak that I received from Cami. What a beautiful easel card!

Tamiko's Sketch Challenge

Tamiko's is having another sketch challenge. This one also challenged us to alter a C&C image (please note that we got special permission from the designer). The designer let us alter by swapping heads with bodies. Was way more challenging than you would think! Remember, if you use the code Pink10 when you check out, you will get an extra 10% off everthing!

Here is my take on the sketch and altered image. It's Cupcake Kiki with August's head. Hope you like it and have a wonderful Thursday!

Halloween Goodies!

Just wanted to share some Halloween goodies with everyone:

I made this by cutting a huge envelope in half, stamping it and then scoring it at 1" around three sides. This is for my daughter's hula class for Halloween.

Here are the bags that I made for her classmates. Didn't want to get too fancy cause they are 1st graders after all, lol.

These next two treats were made by my gf, Brenda (aka the Punch Queen). She already knows this, but thought I would let everyone out there in blogland know that she is my absolute hero!

One of her punch creations using the SU owl to look like a bat. Amazing!

Thank you Brenda for always thinking of me and for being my hero ;0)!

A thank you card, some goodie bags and more CPC...

Here is a ty card that I made for one of my gfs...just wanted to let her know how much I appreciate her being there for me.

So I am coaching my daughter's soccer team and at the end of the season I always give the girls a goodie bag from me. I got them each a HK lunch box and made them personalized HK tags. The bags are stuffed full of goodies. Hope they like them :0).

Here is another CPC project designed by Sonya entitled 'Candy Cane Card Box'. Such a great idea for a Christmas gift.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great Monday!

Tamiko's Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge!

Tamiko's is having another challenge...this time it is in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month. Our challenge was to use pink and the Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon. Everyone knows someone who has been affected by this...I have someone very dear to me who has beaten this and is in full recovery, so this particular challenge was very meaningful to me.

For the month of October, you can get 10% off your entire order at Tamiko's if you use the code Pink10 along with free shipping over orders of $25. What are you waiting for?

Tamiko's Challenge

It's that time again! Time for another one of Tamiko's challenges...this particular challenge was to use brads, buttons and bling on your card. My bff gave me this adorable C&C image that I just had to ink up. Not your traditional Halloween colors, but I wanted it to be a little bit different. Hope everyone is having a great week!

Altered Anya and some raks to share!

I altered my Anya by using Fleur Anya body with my Flirty Anya Head. The photo looks weird to me, not sure if it is the lighting. Anyhoo, just wanted to share.

For the Christmas tag swap, I was paired with my gf, Berenice. She just started a new line called Karber Digital Images. Go check her out!
