We have all been busy this holiday season and I am no exception.

My card sales didn't do to well this year and I'm not happy with it. Several of us were wondering if it was the economy? Maybe! I got the same old response as every year....."Oh there very cute!" Sometimes you just want to jump the table and shake them and ask them why they wont buy one.  haha  Though you know you can't, you still wish!

Here's a few little dudad's for you. They sold nicely on the gift card holders but not on the cards. One only knows what people are looking for and what will make them buy. Oh there are two different ones to download, so make you you get both!

So please us these as much as you like. Maybe you might have better luck than I did!  haha

Happy Holidays,

Thanks again Shelly and here is the new file.

I have noticed that you have to click on the date to get more text on the blog. This includes the link to the wreath.  ~ Lisa

Not sure how I keep doing this, but I have won again. This time it was a wreath challenge. You either needed snow or a banner. So I did both.

I did have one problem, I can only do it in GSD form. If you think you can do the challenge and reformat into  WPC, SVG or PDF, please send it to me so I can added it. I will give you full credit of course!  :)

Hope you enjoy it and will use it!

Happy Halloween!

Well we made it. Another holiday about to be over.

I really feel sorry to all the children that cant Trick O' Treat because of all the snow and lost power they have. I think that one will go in the record books. You know they said that a Nor'easter has not hit this part since the Civil war.

So what about my Scary House? I bet you can do something nice with it. Maybe sending a card to your friends. :)

Christmas is Next. I know! We only have a few months. Hold on to your wallets!! lol

Have a SCARY day,
Scary House

Almost Halloween....

Well surgery didnt go. There was some complications and Im going to have to try it again after the holidays. :( You know, it's hard to get worked up for surgery and them do a boo boo. Oh well. Keep up my attitude for it to be tried again. :)

How about a Nutty Pumpkin to go with the bat? Someone mentioned that they look like they had to much candy! lol I do believe the have.

I still have one more file for you guys that I will try to add on Monday, Halloween.

You guys have a wonderful weekend and get those pumpkins carved!

Are you "Batty" today?

Are you really going "batty?" Some days I wonder! lol I know my good girlfriend is. She has 3 teenagers and lucky to have hair. Next year will be worse! They will all be in high school together! OMG! If I lived closer, I think I could save her more! lol

This is one of the last files I have of Halloween for you. This bat I did is really cute, but then again I think he needs yellow eyes. Since I dont scrapbook anymore, I tend to use the same paper for cutting.

Like I said, I have one more file for you but here's the problem. I am having surgery on Thursday. Nothing huge, just an out patient. I am hoping to give the last file as your Halloween gift, but if I am late, please understand. :)

Have a wonderful "batty" day!

Sweetest Day...

Did you get something from your Sweetie?!?! I did. Flowers and many, many little Milky Way bars which are my favorite. I made this card and I bought him 2 of his favorite candy bars too.

I am seeing that many of you can not find my files. Go by the name of the file and it is ALWAYS under my name. This file is called "Love my Sweetie." Click on those words and it should take you to a website called 4Share. Click to download and you have to wait 20 seconds or so....sorry, Im cheap and this version is free! :)

Oh I must let you know that this file fits a 6.5"x5" card.

Hope you can use this file for Valentine's Day, Anniversary, or just because.

Love My Sweetie

Something Bubbly

I noticed with all my cuts this year they are in orange and black, I do have alot of orange. lol But looking back this would be cool with a florescent green and black. What do you think? Just to let you know, the font is call ARCANUM. Please download it here if you do not have it. It's free too!

Remember most of my files are some one elses that I traced so please DO NOT sell them. There is that little thing called a "Copy write Law" and I dont want to get slammed nor do you. If you want to change the colors or you like the item reversed, go right ahead, but it doesnt mean that they are now yours and you can sell them.

Have you gone to scrapbook shows and seen all those people create a full page spread with Disney? Well they can get their butts in BIG trouble. I have heard that these companies have "spy's" that go to different states and sue you for EVERYTHING. So please watch what you do.

Hope you all enjoy the file! :)

Happy Halloween

For some odd reason we are have a VERY warm weather spert, which I LOVE! This is not our Indian Summer so that makes it even better.

For this download 4Share decided to be a pain and download my whole file separate. So please, find what you need and click on that. For my friends who use PDF's, it looks like your gonna have to email me. Sorry. If you want the whole file, email me and I will send it to you personally.

Another craft show tomorrow. This is the place that took care of me last year when my hip cracked and I could not move. I told my hubby, Mike, that I WILL I will always pick them first!

Ok, well here's your first of many Halloween I did this year. Hope you like that and can use them.

Hugs, Lisa

Im here.....some days!

OMG where has the time gone? This Summer, as always, has flown by and it's not fair. I mean if you are lucky to live in one of those warmer states, which I do notm you dont know how lucky you are!!! Plus no one has been willing to adopt me. You know I come with my own craft supplies, that I am willing to share! lol

As we all know, I am not in the best of health and I am now on a Kemo drug for my rheumatoid arthritis. I guess you can swap drugs for different problems. My hair has not come out but for a week after my head kills and I fell like I am getting a head cold. I guess I can handle a week when I feel good for the next 4 months then I feel like I am going down hill and I start to hurt.

So I have been working on files for you like mad, I just need to cut them. They are mostly for Christmas and Im working on a Halloween or two. Im just trying to make several, cut at once to make it easier for me. See I am almost booked solid with craft shows from October 1st until December 10th. So if I can cut all at once, posting them will be no sweat. :)

So just hang in there and I'll be joining a Card Blog Hop that I would love for you all to look at. This is happening in the next month or so. There are tons of people who have joined and all you have to do is look at our cards and get some ideas. I hope to see you there.

As for you, I hope you are doing well and I'll be posting soon!

Hugs, Lisa

So I had to choose a winner. How do I do that where there so many creative people out there? Well this was the brain child of my husbands, Mike, that we make a video and here is the link. If there is something wrong with the link, please let me know ASAP. For all my creative challenge friends, here's the link so you see the winner. Guys have a heart...It was taped when I was in my PJ's with no make-up on!!!! lol

Finally I got this bunny done. I am so busy creating Mother's Day cards for my first show.

Now there are very small pieces, like the eyes, that you might want to either enlarge the bunny or maybe you might have a white gel pen.

MTC friends, I tried and tried to import this file into the MTC software and thats where I got upset. If there is someone out there that does save it as a MTC piece, please send it to me so I can add it. :)

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter!

Something new for me......

As some of you may know, I am having a show on April 30th and I am creating cards like mad. I am also trying another "challenge" so I can win some stuff. Hey, times are tough and we have to do what we have to do. :) Her challenges are every week so you never know what I might post. :)

The Digi stamp comes from Stamp Fairy, which is just to adorable!!! You really must check them out. Here's the link.....http://stampfairychallenge.blogspot.com/

I picked this girl, who is in a Halloween costume, because I thought she was jumpy and full of life. You had to use a WILD apron for inspiration and add some flowers that I punched out and curled. Oh the girl is colored from me. I have a stack of images I color on the main level of my house while I watch my soap. haha I just love to color, always have. :)

OK, I must go and create more. Keep your fingers crossed, I see two have been turned in already and they are GOOD!!!!.

P.S. I have a bunny for you, I just need to cut him!

Something New.............

So many new things have been happening......

For X-mas, I bought a Cricut Expression. I know, I know but I am not using the cartridges. I have 2 that came with the machine and I bought one only because I won some money, $30, for a card competition. I don't really like the card. You know, you had to use the paper they gave you and had limits. Trust me.....I'm not sending it.

Anywho, my hubby calls her Big Yeller. Im not to fond of the flowers but I'll live. So I am using this software called Make the Cut http://www.make-the-cut.com/. I have been playing around with it and let me tell you it welds like a snap. You don't have to trace!!!! YEAH! The software is so easy to use, compared to the Craft Robo software that I pulled my hair out on. lol
So this is my first attempt to share a file. I have 2 PDF's because it would not let me "combine" the two. If you can help me combine, please do. It is in MTC, Funtime and GSD form also. They are all in one zipped file. This helps me here on my blog.

I hope I will be able to create and share in all file forms, If not, I will let you know.

Lots of Love,

Happy January!

Winter is in full swing so I thought you would like something cold.

This is a frame that I made into the card. I see that I need more color because the frame and card is white. So I decided to take my blue ink pad and go around all the edges of the card. To save money, I did not include plastic or acetate to the frame. I'm sure if you were only going to do one of these it might be nice to save the photo. So you should be able to use a standard 4"x6" photo but don't quote me. You might need to trim it. I also added 2 layers of foam tape to "raise" up the piece. Make sure you don't put the tape on the top. haha I had to tell my self several times not to do that! :)

Sorry to my Funtime friends. I tried.....I really did but I can not get it to work. It just would not vector right and it was just a pain. If some one can do it for me, please send it along. Again, I will give you full credit.

You all have a wonderful day and lets see what I can scurry up for February.
