Where have I been?

Hello Followers :)
I know I have been gone for a while. It has just been crazy. I injured my ankle and needed surgery on it, so I haven't been crafting much. We also went on vacation and I was going to do some autoposts for projects you haven't seen, but ran out of time before we left and we didn't have internet on the trip. I will start posting again and thanks to all of you for staying around :)

Crafting Family day :)

Hi Everyone. It is wednesday :) I have my Crafting Family project today.
It's a cute and easy card for you today. Sometimes you get sucked it and think a plain card doesn't work, but I want to show you cards don't have to have tons of stuff on them to be nice :)

This was a simple card to make. I used American Crafts paper, from the Campy Trails collection and the paper is called Buffalo Lake and it is of course from Crafting Family :) The aqua and brown paper were just scraps. I cut the American Crafts paper into rectangles, and used both sides, the yellow is the back and then sewed them together on my sewing machine.

Attitude is Everything at Crafting Family

Hi Everyone!
Happy 4th of July.

I have a short post for Crafting Family today.

I made a quick little box for you today. When you take off the band it opens like a pizza box. It's perfect for a cookie or some candy.

I used Basic Grey paper for the band, tag, and one of the flowers. It is from the Wander Collection, and it is called turbulence. The flowers are a scalloped circle and I punched it 5 or 6 times and then pushed a brad through it. I then got it slightly wet and scrunched it up to make the flowers.
I eyeballed the tag. The sentiment is from K Andrew Designs Positive Thoughts.

Enjoy your day.

Getting Cricky Simply sunday Challenge

Happy Sunday!
I hope you are all surviving the heat.  This month's challenge at Getting Cricky,

We were challenged to make something for a summer celebration. So here is what I came up with.

I apologize for the uncropped pics, I have been having computer problems and wasn't able to crop them.

So here is the finished project. I plan on using for the summer get togethers for the table.

The ketchup bottle says "Ketchup with you soon" and the mustard says "I could just squeeze you" The sentiments are from K Andrew Designs Food for Thought.

   This is the view of it from the back.  I used a lot of stickles and gemstones on this.

This is one of the side views.

I made up the pattern myself.  If you are interested in it,let me know and I can write it up. :)I used the K Andrew Designs Twine.

So, I hope you have a great day and head on over to join in our challenge. 

I also plan on entering this into Decorate to Celebrate.
