It's Calendar Time!!

Each year, for the past three years, A Muse has created a variety of calendars available for purchase with proceeds from the purchases going to a worthy cause. This year's cause touches the heart strings of every parent out there. This year's cause is Charley's Fund. To read more about what's behind Charley's Fund and learn how you can participate, please click this link. Won't you please help?

Usually I would create a monthly or yearly calendar project but this year I decided to make calendar cards! I used the mini version of the A Muse 2011 Calendar to create cards that signify a special day of the month like a birthday in January or the first day of school in September.

Be sure to visit the A Muse blog to see other great ideas shared by the Creative Team as well some very special guests. Let's bring Charley's dreams to reality!!

Are you my mummy?

When my youngest was younger we used to play the "are you my mommy?" game. I thought this would be a fun, simple card to share. The hardest part is stamping the sentiment and getting it on the two layers! I used a microfine pen to fill in what didn't stamp.

I'm so excited cuz I'm going to Impress tomorrow for a Making Memories Slice class. I'm going to get my Halloween on! I think we are playing with the new Toil and Trouble cartridge, which I do not own. Plus, I'll be with some peeps so that makes things even more fun!

You're Bewitching!

Halloween is not a big holiday for me. My kids don't even like to dress up. I might decorate my house a bit but never with witches or devils. I pretty much stick to pumpkins, maybe a spooky tree or a bat. This year, though, I've been having lots of fun crafting up cards to teach for some fun ladies that take my classes with all kinds of Halloween images. I've scoured card galleries, magazines, even catalogs for fun ideas. This card is based on one I saw on Splitcoast. I finally opened up my Martha Stewart Web Border Punch from last year and used it on some Onyx A Muse Cardstock. Looks so cool!

Anyway, I'll have some more Halloween goodies to share soon!
