I think I am done, got these projects finished up yesterday and all my pressies wrapped, whew, under the wire on this one. The above are utensil wraps for dinner tomorrow, my roommates last name is White, ie the reference to dinner at the White House, lol.
These are the doggie (dear) bags for left overs, just a grocery bag and did a label with my Silhouette Cameo. Wishing you and yours a very Merry one. hugs

Well, I have to admit I have given my little star flower a work out this holiday season, but it has been a fun adventure working with it. I needed a small giftie box and made a Christmas Tree using the flower, Scanned it in and turned it into an element with my Silhouette Cameo. The little star on top is also one of the flowers but just cut out from white card stock and then sprayrd with gold mist by Design Master. The trunk extends over the side to create a closure for the box, more for looks as the end tucks inside to close. I then cut out some tiny snow flakes and done. The project was a little time consuming but once done it is now just a matter of pulling it up on the Cameo and cutting pieces out. My little miracle tool. Happy Holidays one and all.

The background and dolphin were done with NeoII crayons and pen, then finishing with some acrylic white for the splash at the tail as he comes out of the water. The background is crumpled tin foil with the Design Masters "TintIt". Hope your weekend is filled with magic and songs. Hugs

My roommates sister had open heart surgery earlier this week, she got a new "heart pig valve", she did well but has a bit of healing time ahead, so I did this card so her brother could make her laugh.
Did a little pig sketch and made an element with the Cameo, then used existing elements I already had, a tag "Pig Skins" (she is a razorback fan), "Pig Valve" (her gift to enhance life), and what in the heck are "Moss Piglets", lol, well they are a microscopic organism that is being used by a company in Illinois to revolutionize LEDs, you may google them as "Moss Piglets", very interesting. Inside the card says, "they all make life good, so glad surgery went well."
Our day is glorious and I go pick up my son from work and spend a few hours with him, one of my favorite days of the week, hope all of you are traveling a blessed path, hugs

Dog bone is a sketch done with the Cameo and then "Intense Ink Pencils" are responsible for color, scanned in and turned it into an element also with Cameo and cut it out for card. It is now onto putting the final details onto sons' birthday pressies, we go to dinner tonight, fun fun fun. Hope your hump day is smoooth and cooler than ours will be we are into increasing triple digis through Friday, hugs

My son's birthday is tomorrow, I walk his dogs on Tuesday, so today I am putting a 12pk. of Corona on his counter, so he can kick off the celebration tonight after work as a little surprise. I truly can't imagine life without my Silhouette Cameo, there is barely a day I don't use it for something. The balloons were done with the sketch feature, then cut out and embellished with pen and ink. Some thin twine to give the fun card some depth. It will be attached to the beer carton with an appitizer fork, my roommate had a package of them he was going to throw away and I rescued them from the garbage can,
giving the fork a coating of alcohol ink (Chameleon - Deep Black), attached to the back with a glue dot and then a piece of scotch tape over the back for double adhesion. The fork will attach to the side hand cutouts on the carton.
A fun way to kick off a birthday, it was quick and easy, just what my life calls for lately. Hope everyone made it through Labor Day unscathed with some good memories. Hugs

Geeze not sure what is going on today but nothing and I mean nothing in my studio is working right today, so after this post I am shutting her down and give all a breather, lol.
I went on a tangent this morning, trying to get a decent emboss from my new Curio, it is probably me not the machine, heaven knows I am not the most patient. "Believe In yourself" was embossed on vellum but it just did not come out strong enough, so I started playing with sprays and chalks and golly olly I came up with the new background, added a couple flowers and my bee and am calling it done for today, will work more tomorrow. Have a great rest of your Sunday, hope everyone is ready for school, those that are going, hugs

I have been using an old cricut mat for a spray sheet, looking at it the other day, I thought "I need to scan this in, so did. It has spray paint, gesso and masking tape on it which gives the background some great texture. I needed a male birthday card for this weekend and this did the trick. Used one of my new feathers and a birthday rub-on.
Have a great weekend. Hugs

I volunteered to do a few cards for a chemo clinic, they will give out cards to those who are having a really great day or some that are having a hard one.
I have pups to walk today, a son to hang out with for a while and maybe even a little studio time. Hope you have much to smile at today, tomorrow and always, hugs

I was straightening up the patio table yesterday and the cat treats were sitting there and I decided they needed a container, there was an empty Puff's box and it all just came together. So now they don't tumble with one of our Delta Breeze gusts and it makes us laugh. I set up the panels on my silhouette and cut two and just adhered them to to the box, I cut the bottom out so that it fits over the snacks, the snack bag is a little larger than the opening so it holds the snacks in the box until you pull it out.

When I design a card, it is usually because I have found an element that sparks my imagination or I find words rolling around in my head that have to be put to print. I found this scale first and have hung on to it knowing I wanted it in a card. Then yesterday after a conversation with a friend afar the words came, So I celebrated friendship yesterday with this card.
I also gave thanks for this awesome cool down we are having in N CA, walked pups yesterday who were thankful they didn't have to high step it over burning cement to get to the grass, saw my boy child and spent a few hours with him, wow busy but great week. Hope you are rolling into the second half of your week, happy and content. Hugs

This rose was a must cut in the garden this week, actually it is red, took some artistic liberties when coloring, I used three or four inktense pinks, a black micron pen for the drawing and some zentangled leaves. The tag was done using my cut template and a background of crumpled paper bag. Have a great Sunday, hugs

So the moral of the story, if you don't have time to try an idea, be sure to write it down at least so it does not become fodder for the brain to misplace, discard or simple disregard. Happy Tuesday, Hugs

FOR SILHOUETTE USERS:
So here is a little FYI, I have not seen this done, but doesn't mean anything, I have so little time to create and almost no time to catch up on new stuff. Did you know you can clean up your cuts with the eraser on the Silhouette? I enlarge my element after I have traced and detached, move it to the side off the white background, enlarge and then take the smalled eraser possible and clean the zagged lines, wow, it works.
Long post, hope it gives some help, relief and Bless your Goddess within! Hugs
