I am a little sad today, but it's been a really long day.  Issues at work are taking their toll on me, and I had too much to do when I got home to craft! 

Unfortunately, I didn't any links to submissions for the challenge so I won't be able to give the stamp set away.  But thank you everyone for the wonderful comments on my box.  I will keep looking ahead for the 100 followers.

Here are some things I've done over the last few weeks.  One of my end of summer projects was to clean up my craft room.  In the process I decided to use up all my scraps.  I literally used everything I had that was big enough to make a card and ended up with seven cards.  They are pretty blank but they are a start to my card stash.  Next time I need a quick thank you card, i won't have to start from the beginning....which will be SO nice.
Some of them came out really neat looking.

I also have my July DT project for Scrapper's Delight to share with you.  I used one of my pre-made cards in the picture above and paired it with the cutest digital stamp.  If you've never been over there, you should visit Bugaboo stamps.  They are so adorable and there is such a wide variety of styles of stamps.  I chose the fat mouse and colored it in with my copics.

When I wasn't paying attention, I put the stamp on....and it came out crooked.  But oh well.  That just gives it the handmade look. :)

I hope everyone is having a good evening.  I have to get back to what I'm doing.  It's my husband's birthday today and I didn't even make him a card!!  He knows what kind of stress I've been under and like the wonderful man he is, doesn't seem to mind at all.  But I do have brownies in the oven that should be ready when he gets home :)  So at least I did a little something, even if it was last minute. 

Wednesday I am the guest designer on the Bug Bytes and I'm working on a super cute project that I'm going to finish up tomorrow!

Good night all!

Want a chance to win a prize??

It's the SWEET AS CANDY challenge on Scrapper's Delight! 

If you've come here from their blog, then welcome!!  To find out what this is all about, please visit their blog here.  If you hop on over there, you will find links to all of the awesome project for the design team.  The inspiration for the theme of this challenge comes from snacking while crafting.  What do you all snack on when you craft?   Personally I tend not to simply because it drives me nuts getting stuff on my fingers (like potato chip grease).  Just a thing of mine anyway :)

Now, onto the project I created.  For this challenge, I pondered over what to do for awhile.  Many times I tend to make cards but I wanted to do something a little different.  My husband's birthday is coming up next week and he LOVES Recee Cups (however you spell it) and I tend to get him a bag to go along with whatever gift I give.  So, since we're thinking candy for this challenge, I decided to make him a cool container and put them in there.  Here it is:

This box is 3.5"x5"x1.5".  I started with an 8.5x11 sheet of cardstock and just went from there.  The top is actually hinged so it's kind of like those doughnut boxes.  I kept the colors similar to what would be found on the candy I was putting in it...unfortunately I did not have time to get to the store to buy candy to put in it before I had to send off my picture.  The little candy corn (isn't it just adorable?!?!?) is from the cricut Mini Monsters Cartridge.  BTW, there are a ton of cool cuts on that cartridge.  With Halloween coming up I'm definitely going to explore some more projects with it.  Other supplies I used were cardstock (from my stash and idea what some of it is), stamps and ink are from Clear Dollar Stamps, Stickles, and the circle and scallop are some Nestabilities dies I just got and had to try out.   Oh, and I used a glue pad and Martha Stewart glitter for the tag. 

To be eligible for the Scrapper's Delight giveaway, you'll need to enter on their blog.  I also wanted to give something away to another lucky person who follows my blog.  After going through my stamps, I have an extra, brand new set of Fiskars stamps.  It's a coffee/tea set that I just thought was adorable.  To be eligible to win this stamp set, please leave a comment on this post with a link to your creation for the Sweet as Candy challenge.  So for those participating in the challenge on the Scrapper's Delight blog, just also let me know where to find your project and you might win these stamps! 
If I can make it to 100 followers, I will do another giveaway of a Cricut Cartridge.  So please follow me!!!
Here are some other pictures of my project.  Thank you for stopping by!
