Never fails...try to clean things up and I make an even bigger mess! Started off working hard as I was cleaning things out, unitl I found tons of forgotten stuff. From there I was back at my desk using the stuff. I still prefer Prismacolor pencils, but slowly getting more comfortable with using the Copic's. Everyone tells me if I take a Copic class I will really love them. I'm afraid of that too. They are not cheap either, around $7.00 per pen. I only have a small few, around twenty, but for now I'm fine with what I have. Anyway, a card for my sweet Momma. She was here last weekend for a short visit on their way to Florida for the winter. I sure do miss her when she's gone. Her visits are just too short. Love you Mom!

Trying to get a hold of my craft room. It is horrible..... again! If I don't make a card, page, or project my room will stay pretty decent, but like when I am cooking it's all or nothing! I got these cute paper mache boxes from Hobby Lobby a year or so ago. They have been on the shelf collecting dust until I attempted to reorganize my room. I decided to put all of my ribbons in them. Later after I took this picture I used my Cricut and added "Ribbons" to the front of the yellow box. Maybe now I will use them more.
Just finished adding "Ribbons" to the 3rd box. Now to fill them up!

I spent all of last week getting ready for our neighborhood garage sale that we had this weekend. I really need to be putting things back in the attic and straightening my house. My sweet Momma will be visiting us this coming weekend, but instead I opened my mailbox today, saw Angie's video, and just had to make one too! So here is my version of this cute card box. I used the DCWV Holiday Collection "The Christmas Stack" for this sweet card box. It has 180 beautiful coordinating papers in this nice stack. Anyway....who doesn't love to procrastinate???? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3xZvo7a6ag

Not a lot to go on...just Group #3 and looks like the name Martin. I love the cartridge she used in making this, but not sure which one it is. She spent a lot of time piecing all of this together. Good job!
(Added later; this tag was tied for 2nd place!)
This is sooo cute! This was from Bea Robinson. I think I have her on my blog list, but will check and make sure. I know we are on Skype together. I can't wait to "thank" her for this super nice tag! It was just too nice to open tho, so I took my pic without taking it out of the package. Bea spent a lot of time with the outside package of her tag also. I love the handwriting on it. I try and add some of my own handwriting on everything I make. I have horrible printing, but I think it's important to whoever receives it.
This is really a great tag, but it has no name or any info to go by. I take hundreds of pics when we go on a trip or visit our Grands and this would be a great mini to make. You can't tell, but she has two layers with summer on the bottom layer and a window on the top layer showcasing the font. She also has a dozen or so ribbon ties with cute sayings attached on the top right. Really cute!
This is from Lisa AKA Scrapsation. I need to try and locate her also. Really nice bright colors and a lot of paper piecing also.
(Added later; This won 1st place!!)
I was soooo happy to receive this tag. Kathy had shown it on her blog in September and I thought "wow!" It is totally an awesome tag and I love every inch of it. This was done by Marianne Ash at PaperPiecer.blogspot.com and her YouTube name is Mash723. I will be looking for her!
Marianne even added this fun tag to her tag package! I listed my personal tag in an earlier post. I will have to go back and relocate my tag and post it on her too. I just wish I had made one for myself...oh well next time I will! Have a good Saturday and ROLL TIDE ROLL!!
Okay, I found my tag...here it is
