Pumpkin Poop Box and Poem

Ok, so if you saw my You Tube video, you know how to make this cute Pumpkin and box!  Here is the funny little poem that goes inside the box. Don't forget to buy some candy corn for the "Pumpkin Poop"!

I started to carve a pumpkin
With my carving knife and scoop.
But the pumpkin got so scared,
He took a little poop.

It looked so cute and funny—
Just like a candy treat.
So I’m sharing it with you now,
Because you are so sweet.

Btw, I didn't come up with this idea, it's been floating around for years.  If anyone knows where it originated, please let me know and I will give credit for it.  Thanks a bunch.

Get ready for Halloween!

This card was shown on my recent You Tube video, so I thought I would post the card recipe!
I've been having fun with the Big Shot Swirly die cut made by Stampin' Up!  It makes everything look
so elegant! Plus, the Top Note Die cut is so versatile you will have to have it!

The Pumpkin is made with three wide scallop punches.  Watch my You Tube video for details.

Here's what I used: Pumpkin Pie cardstock for the pumpkin #105117, Olive green for the card base #100702, Whisper White #100730 cut with Top Note Die #113463, Garden Green cardstock #102584 cut with the Swirly Die #113456.  The Boho Flower punch #110711 was used for the flowers on the Swirls.  I used some scrap paper and buttons for embellishing. And Ta-Da! You're done.

If you make this card, let your imagination go wild, and send me a picture if you can! :>

Christmas Kitty Scrapbook Page

This is a picture of my Kitty, Jazz.  She's not too thrilled about having a hat on her head. So, I matched my saying to her little facial expression.  Hope you get a little giggle.


New My Digital Studio software!

Hi Everyone!
This is my first card using the new MDS software.  It's a Thank you card for all my viewers of my blog.  Thank you for visiting my site!
The software is pretty easy to use.  This is my second time using it. And believe me, I am not too computer savvy....even my blog is a MIRACLE! Hahaha Enjoy!

Fun Halloween Card

Hi everybody.

Here is a card I made today. I love the Twick or Tweet Stamp Set with this little chick! I also put some swirly Big Shot embellishments with a few rhinestones for a little razzle/dazzle. Hope you like it. 

 Ok, so here's what I did.  I used Kraft cardstock #102125 for the card base, Razzleberry Lemonade DSP #115675, Dusty Durango for the Matt Cardstock #115321, For the large scallop - Basic Gray Cardstock #108692, and Glossy White Cardstock #102599.  I used Jet Black Stazon Ink #101406, the ribbon is Crushed Curry #115614, and of course the Swirly Die Cut #113456.  

If you don't have this Die Cut, you will want to get it because it is so versatile and dainty.  I love it.  Hope you like it, let me know if you have any questions, and if you'd like to order anything, just go to my store at  Thank you! Take care everyone!

Labor Day Update

Hope everyone had a relaxing day today. I did a little cleaning and relaxing with my hubby. I am trying to get two new videos up on You Tube but since I am not a computer whiz, it takes me some time. I did try a new video camera but I didn't like it, so I returned it. So, if you know of one that is good for You Tube, drop me a line. Once I get the hang of it, I will be more consistent. But, honestly it takes me a while....Sorry, don't give up on me just yet! I am also heading out for some R & R for a week but I will be back refreshed and ready to rock! TTYS
