Busy Busy Busy

Hi everyone,
I was suppose to go shopping today. I need to get the rest of the stuff I need for my little Christmas gifts. But the hard rain turned into a hard snow and made our road to scary for my hubby's whimpy little car. So he had to take mine. That leaves me stuck at home. Oh well there's still time. I had lots of other things to finish.
Starting with the necklaces and boxes for my family's Christmas eve party.

I did the necklaces in three shapes and two colors

This white is a shimmer white and the snow flakes are silver embossing

and purple ones are three colors sponged  together and again silver embossed snowflakes.

The gift boxes came out pretty cute too. I thing the gals are going to like them.

Next I decorated some tea bottles and filled them with Hersey Kisses. These are for the ladies in my stamp club and some of the neighbors.

These are fun to make. I have everyone saving their bottles for me. You can put just about anything in them.
Here's one I did for my mom's little dog Buffy

I still got to do the candies for all the kids and nuts for the guys. Hope I can have my car back soon.

I even played along with three challenges. Told ya I've been busy.

I have one card for two challenges The Friday Mashup and The Sunday Stamps.

The challenge for the Friday Mashup is to mash together Heat embossing with A clean and simple card.

Now the Sunday Stamps. This is a great sketch

Here is the card I created

The flower and love you are heat embossed. And all my supplies are from Stampin' Up.
Lucky Limeade, Real Red, And Whisper White card stock Real Red ink. Crumb Cake DSP. Pretty in Pink grosgrain ribbon. The stamps are Itty Bitty Banners and Mixed Bunch. I also used the matching punch and framlit. The Perfect Dots folder was used on the background and I add a scallop border using the Scallop Trim Border punch. The bottom sentiment is from the So Many Saying set and I punched that out with the Modern Label punch. The flower in the back is suppose to be the flowers leaves. I think it worked.

My next card is made for the Try Stampin' On Tuesday challenge.

I don't know why, but I made a Father's day Card. Guess maybe I don't need no more Christmas cards. My plan was to make 2 Valentine cards. I don't have a clue what happened. Later I'll need it so what the heck.

Every thing is from Stampin' Up except the brads and twine. Basic Grey, Pool Party, and Whisper White card stock. The DSP is Domestic Goddess. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set.I punched the words out using the window punch and backed it with the Modern Label punch.  I don't know the name of the fishing set that the lures are from. I inked up the twine with Basic Grey ink to make it stand out a little.
Well believe it or not thats all I have for now. I'm tired and going to sit back watch a scary movie with a glass or two of wine.
Hope you like all my projects. Please stop back again.
