Hello all my crafty friends and follower's~
Hope everyone had a beautiful Christmas and got what they wished for.   Christmas Eve we had a bit over cast weather over the island, Christmas Day was just a gorgeous day.  For the Eve we spent it with  my hubby's side of the family so we had the basic dinner, turkey with all the fixings.  On Christmas Day we had luncheon over my daughter's house and wow they had food that they could feed their subdivision with.  We had every Japanese food you can think of plus lots of desserts.   We can't wait for New Year's Day my hubby and I got invited by my son-in-laws Aunty for luncheon at her house and I hear every year they go all out.   Yum yum!
So I worked on a New Year's gift card box that I am going to give the hostess that invited both of us, and I've included (4) cards that I made  and  included envelopes for this set.

Recipe for my box:
Stamp (Ayako) Sister Stamps
Papers from My Little Shoe Box
Spectrum Noir and Copic makrers
Sakura glaze pen, stickles
Spellbinders Hexagons die
Paper piece her umbrella and kiymono

Will be back to post my cards for this box!

Cupcake Hippo!


Happy Monday everyone!  
Hope you got to do some quality time crafting as well, besides being in the shopping mall all weekend.  LOL!
Here's a quick post for today,  I wanted to share a cute birthday card I made last evening using this freebie I got from Stinkin Cute Paper Piecings on Facebook.  Being that they hit their 1000 Facebook Fans this was a freebie they offered.  It's only good for a week so if you want it you might want to  hop on over and check if it's still available.   My papers are from Doodlebug, buttons, pop up dots and Cuttlebug Swiss Dot embossing folder.

"Honey" - Sweet Love!

My blog candy here!

Here's another new digi image (Honey) that is available at Alicia's Crafty Corner.  She is just one cutie of an image.  As soon as I saw her on FB I had to get to the shop and get her.  LOL!
She is full of hearts and also can be perfect for a sweet Valentine's card or however or whatever you can imagine doing with her.   I turned my card into a V-Day card and will give this to my honey, I love coffee and I love sweets so it turned out awesome... I have to stash this one so he doesn't go through my card files to see what I did.  He normally likes to come into my crafty room and snoop in to see what I got on my craft table and always praises me how creative I was and how pretty my projects are.  And then he reminds me constantly that my work area needs to be more tidy up.  I have tons of scraps pieces and backing strips of my two way tapes piled up and keep telling myself oh well today is the day I'm going to concentrate in cleaning up.  Dah, it hasn't happen yet!  I'm sure their must be a lot of you out there that is like me, I mean where do you find a crafty room that is always neat, that means you are just too clean or not as crafty.  LOL!  
Any how back to my card here is Honey!

Recipe for my card:
Papers from Pebbles - last year's stash
Heart die from Spellbinders
Heart Gem from Studio 112
Sentiment stamp from Imaginisce
Markers: copic & Spectrum Noir
Sakura gel pen
Distress with Stampin Up ink

Thanks for peeking in!

Enjoy your fun filled crafty day/evening~
