Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge - Glitter or Foil

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Well, I took down all our Christmas decorations on Sunday.  It always makes me a little sad to see all of my favorite things get put away for another year.  I still can't believe it is all over already.

On a more positive note, I was offered a new job on December 21st and I accepted!  I have not been happy at my job for the past couple of years so I was thrilled when this awesome new opportunity came my way.  I will start my job on January 21st and I'm really excited!

Ok, on to our Die Cuttin' Divas challenge for this week, which is to use glitter or foil on our project.  I still needed a few thank you cards so I made another one of those this week.
Paper: Recollections
Glitter Paper: CTMH
Snowman Die: My Creative Time

Die Cuttin' Divas Sketch Challenge

Happy New Year!!  I hope all of you enjoyed your holidays.  They sure flew by so fast.  My Christmas was really nice even though I got a horrible sinus infection the week before.  Luckily I was able to see a doctor and get some antibiotics so I was feeling great by Christmas.  I didn't get to do any cookie baking this year because I was not feeling well but my sister made several  different kinds of cookies so we were all set. 



Since this is a new month as well as a new year, our challenge this week is a sketch challenge based on this sketch:


I needed some thank you cards so I made this card based on the sketch:
Paper: Echo Park
Penguin Die: CardzTV Stamps
Circle Die: Cricut Shapes
Washi Punch: Stampin' Up

Die Cuttin' Divas Favorite 2018 Sketch

Happy December to all of you!  I can't even believe it is December already.  I had a really fun weekend.  I went to dinner with my hubby on Saturday night to a wonderful seafood restaurant.  The food is always so good and we enjoy being near the ocean.  On Sunday, my sister and I went to a craft fair at a new winery not too far from my house.  The products being sold were very nice and very high quality.  After we walked around, we were able to sit at a table outside and have a glass of delicious wine.  It was such a relaxing day.  Now I need to get into Christmas mode so I'll be ready in time for the holiday!

On to our challenge this week at Die Cuttin' Divas, which is to make a project using any of our monthly sketches from 2018.  Here is a picture of all of them so you can pick your favorite one to use:

Hello and happy Tuesday!  Are you all ready for Thanksgiving?  I am looking forward to it.  It will be quiet this year because my husband broke his heel last month and he is still on crutches. We will stay home and I'll make dinner for me, my husband and my sister. I am really looking forward to having a nice long weekend off of work.

On to this week's Die Cuttin' Divas challenge, which is Thanksgiving or Thanks.  I decorated these cute little pails that I found at a thrift store.  They were brand new and I think I got 4 of them for $1!  That was quite a bargain and I could not pass them up. I made these for my craft buddies and I will see them this weekend.  There is some candy in them along with a small bottle of Fireball.  We all love Fireball!

We are doing an Anything Goes challenge this week.  You can showcase any project you want to, just remember to use a die cut on your project.

I decided to make one last Halloween card for my project.
All the paper and die cuts I used for my
card are from Doodle Bug Designs.

Aren't the paper and die cuts just adorable??  I've had this paper/die set for a while and I was glad I got to use it for my card.  My Cricut was acting up so I'm very happy I had this set on hand.

Die Cuttin' Divas Any Animal Challenge

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I had lunch with one friend on Saturday and then breakfast with another friend on Sunday.  I had not seen either of them for a while so it was so much fun catching up.  Nothing like hanging with your friends and having some laughs.  I've known both of them for a long time and I just love when we get together.

Ok, on to this week's Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge, which is any animal.  

I decided to use a cute dog/cat/pig stamp set that I have.  I don't know who makes these stamps because they were a gift in a clear plastic bag and there is no name on the stamps.  They sure are cute!  Here's my card:
 Paper: I used scraps for this card
I stamped and colored the kitties and 
then cut them out on my Brother Scan N Cut
Die for sentiment: My Creative Time
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper
Ribbon: Michaels
Dots: Cloud 9 Designs
