Tag your It!!!

Happy Friday everyone!  I'm here to share a tag that I made for Waltzingmouse Makes Blog Challenge.  For this challenge we have to make a Christmas tag that is elegant and beauty.  Well i got the Christmas part, but i don't think that i got the elegant and beauty part!! LOL  I still think this tag is really cute.  The main base of the tag is acrylic 3x3 then i used my Cricut and cut out the blue piece. Before adhering the blue piece i stamped the acrylic with white snowflakes.  I used my Cricut again to cut out the "snowfun".  I really wish that the acrylic would show up better in the picture.  If any of you have any tips about that I would love to hear about it.  Either send me a message or leave a comment here.  We can make more than one tag to enter so i'll be back with another later tonight or tomorrow.     

Materials used: 
Tag: Acrylic -from office depot
blue cs- Micheals
white cs for "snowfun" and snowman- CTMH
Snowman stamp- my stash
"snowfun"- SVG Cuts

Christmas Card

Well, I have been busy!!  I've been getting ahead in my DT projects for Patties Creations Challenge. If you haven't already you should go check out the Challenge that is going on right now, you could win!!  
So i'm not allowed to show some of the cards that i have been making until the Challenge blog posts them so i decided to make a Christmas card to hold you over for a little bit longer!!  The little present moves back and forth and spins around.  All paper used is from my stash and the present is from a stamp set (oh Christmas tree) from CTMH.  You might have noticed but i have changed up the was my pictures are done.  I'm using photoshop elements now and I have added some decorations to the picture.  It's so much fun using this program.  I have had some help from CDAC.
The tutorials I have been finding there helped me out a LOT!!  Well i'm going to go now and make another card to share with you... or maybe something else not sure yet.  Hope you all have a wonderful day.

Fire Chief for the Day

Happy hump day everyone! I hope you all are having a good day. The week is already half done!! YAY!!  Today was very special for my son Robbie.  He was chosen to be the "Fire Chief for the Day" One student from every school in Kelowna  was chose to be "fire Chief for the Day".  What happend when your "Fire Chief for the Day"?  Well his day started when he was picked up by the firetruck at our house.  They had all the lights and sirens on when they came. You should have seen his face!  (I had my camera but it was so cold my batteries shut down :(  )  They gave him a ride to school, they asked me if I would like to have a ride too but I had the daycare kids.  Wish I didn't because i would have loved to share it with him (not because of the HOT firefighters!!!  I know i shouldn't say that, but i couldn't help it! LOL )  Tonight we bring him to the main Fire Hall in town here, were he joins the firefighters for supper with McDonalds!!  Then they show him the fire hall... go through the equipment, and who knows what else!!  I will be posting pics of tonight tomorrow with my next project. I am so proud of him!!

Now on to my Card!!!  Therese the lead for paperfacesdesigns has some really, I mean REALLY cute digi's for fall and halloween.   This is a new image called 

autumn birds. You can find it here.  When you buy this digi stamp you will get another one with it called cat n dog nap.  Now i think that is a great deal.  Buy one and get another one with it!!   Tomorrow i will be back with my next project using Paperfacesdesigns.  I can't wait to show you!!  Don't forget I LOVE reading comments!!! Talk to you all tomorrow.
