Gift Bags For my Kids.

I seen a tutorial on how to make a rocking nugget on So I made some using my Cricut for the kids in my Sunday school class.

These were easy and fun to make. The kids liked them. They also included “Elf Kisses” and a little candy cane plus a mechanical pencil.

This is a close up of the square little bags.
And these are the purse looking ones. They turned out cute and the kids loved getting the treat bags.
I hope you had a chance to hug the littles in your life. We had a wonderful Christmas with our family. God bless you all.

Joy, Christmas Card

This was the last card I did for this year. The sentiment was from Create with TLC. Paulette, is so sweet to give away each day a freebie. She also has a great store.

This is the theme for my coming year. I “will choose Joy” daily. I think we all need to choose to have joy. When we look at the daily life it can suck the joy out of us. Jesus wants us to have Joy daily. May your days be filled with Joy.

Merry Christmas, Honey.

This is smoky. She is 6 years old and the newest addition to our family. I got her for my sweet husband. He has been wanting a cat.

She is a sweet cat with an attitude. She has grabbed our daughter because she was ignoring her. She has hissed because she was done being petted. We all laughed 3 strokes and your done. She likes the heater in my craft room. She was helping me finish up the last of me cards. She was given early because of sadness our nation experienced with the loss of all those kids. Kayla and I decided he would like her sooner for comfort. We figured God allowed us to get her Thursday for this reason. 
God bless your New Year.

Outlawz Ribbon Challenge

This weeks theme is ribbon at the CAS challenge on Outlawz. Add a ribbon or bow to your project. I needed to make goodie bags for my little kids in my Sunday School class for Christmas. So I was lucky enough to do both with the same one. 

I used my Cricut to cut the bags and the words then did the dashes and inked the edges, tied the bow and done. This is very much a CAS (clean and simple). Which is good when you have to make 12 and all the goodies for the inside. I’ll post a picture when I’m done with everything.

Thank you for visiting today. I hope you have a wonderful day and that your Christmas is full of Joy.

Merry Christmas to you all. May your hearts be full of love. Say a prayer for those families who are going to have a very hard Christmas in CT. We have said a lot of prayers.

Joyful Christmas

I wish you a joyful Christmas. I can’t believe it is only 6 days away. Are you ready?? I have about 12 more cards needed. If I would quit adding people to my list it would help.

For this card I used the scrap from the gift bags I made that have the word Joy on them.I cut them with my Cricut and glued it to a coordinating paper. The flower is from one of the dies I got recently, and the embossing on the base is snowflakes from Tim I think. Just use what you have.

I hope you enjoyed your visit. I thank you for stopping bye. You always bless me with your visits.

I cut the chair from a piece of designer paper and was so happy it was the perfect size. She has a pearl earring and her handcuffs are sparkly.

Crazy Santa Bookmark

This Stressed out Santa is from  Rick St. Dennis MFA. It is in a set of 4 digi bookmarks. I love how the fur sparkles on his suit. I can just imagine how I would look after working Christmas.

I love my Spectrum Markers. They blend so nice. I hope you don’t get this stress out for Christmas. Breathe deep and relax. Take some time to do something that you love.  
God bless you for stopping bye and leaving some love.
