HIMCR #78 - Freestyle!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas! We did! It was so nice to have all the kids here especially since my husband is still overseas, who was missed more than he will ever know! It's been a long time since all the kids have been home on Christmas day and it will be a while before we are all together again! My oldest daughter leaves in March for Ukraine to serve an 18 month mission for our church. We will miss her but are so excited to see her serve!

I had so many great ideas and plans of things I wanted to get done this past week but with all the kids here ....... None of them happened!


The challenge this week since it is a fifth Saturday is FREESTYLE! I love this week since anything goes we get to see a wide variety of crafty stuff!

You have until Friday, December 28th to link up your creation to get entered into the drawing. We are combining this week and next week. When uploading to online galleries please use code HIMCR77.

Class Treats!

I made some treats for my kindergartener's class using SCRAPS!

I used an old sizzix die for the tree!

I don't know why I keep this old retired stuff, maybe it's for my kids but in a hurry the sizzix dies are great.

I use my Accucut with an adapter and cut 3 at a time!

I used the Stamping' Up star punch too.

My sweet kindergartner!


Thanks for visiting today!


Be sure and get out your scraps and get entered in to this week's challenge!

Blue Sleigh Wishes

I made another couple of super quick and easy Christmas cards using this week's challenge: Blue and White. Today is the last day to get your challenge submission done and entered into the drawing for the $20 gift certificate from our sponsor Pumpkin Spice. For all the challenge details and to see all the gorgeous entries so far click HERE!

Here's what I came up with this time:

This is a super quick card!
I might be making more of these last minute!

Sleigh was cut at 6.5" from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge.

The reason it is cut so large is because it is an accessory to the rudolph image but is actually only about 4" high.

Recipe:
Card Base: SU Buckaroo Blue 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Other Cardstock / Paper: DCWV The Winter Magic stack and DCWV La Crème stack
Ink: Vintage Violet
Stamps: CTMH Holiday Wishes
Accessories: Cricut & Create a Critter 2 cartridge, Super Cheap Dollartree Glitter glue!
