Happy New Year!

Pin It
Happy New Year my friends!

Sorry to drop off the face of the earth for a little while but sometimes life takes on some interesting journeys. I guess I should fill you all in....

I started a new job for United Parcel Service in October as a Supervisor at the Airport. It's a really great job with amazing benefits. I am very lucky to have it. But along with the great job comes, many long hours (especially during the Christmas holidays) and less time for crafting. I am learning to balance working full time with being a good wife and mom, and running my home ebay and etsy businesses. Needless to say I am super busy and have very little time for much else.

So I decided to let my blog take a different direction this year. No longer do I have a design team. It's sad because those girls: Angela, Kim, Veronica, Sue and Marji dedicated so much time to my blog and really became a daily part of my life! I value them and their friendships so much!! I will no longer be doing monthly challenges. It's just too hard to get the sponsorships and we have such few participants anyways. I will continue the blog hops for now. And will be staying on with Miss Kate Cuttables. So I will be posting my own projects occasionally.

 I'd like to bring some other fun in to my blogging...maybe pressure cooker recipes, weight loss tips, videos...what ever floats my boat! LOL! We will see...all depends on how much time I have to play!

For now I hope you will stick around and visit me every now and again! At least for the blog hops! These girls work hard for them! And thank you all for being there to support all these years!! I truly am grateful for you all!

Come on back Wednesday...for the last Challenge winners of 2017!!

Dear Scrappers,

This is Veronica from Vicky's Scrapping Passion sharing with you my last design for Connie Can Crop, a layout that I created using this month's sponsor image gingerbread-lane-digital-stamp:

I used the sketch from last sketchy Saturday

The right side:

The left side:

I used glittery printed cardstock from my My Mind  Eyes, some KI alpha stickers and ephemera, and some rick rack. I'm planning to add the pictures of my children making a ginger bread house with their cousins 4 years ago...

I hope you enjoyed this card and decide to join us at Connie's, there is some time left for this month's challenge:

YouTube Tuesday-Waterfall Card

Pin It
Hi!  It's Kim from Katydid Cards.  For my final Youtube Tuesday video this month, I'm sharing the making of a waterfall card using images from our sponsor this month, Craftin' Desert Divas.

I just made my first waterfall card last month and it's not that difficult but it sure does have a wow factor.  Why not try making one for our challenge this month.

You can make any sort of card or project you wish just so long as it contains a fancy fold.

One winner, picked at random,  will win two digital images from Craftin' Desert Divas.

For additional information about the challenge or to link up, just click here.
