My Christmas Gift From One of My Nephews

I want to tell everyone that i really had a great time at my Moms for Christmas. Not all the family was there. But there was 20 of us there. We were missing 9 to complete the family gathering. I do have one thing to say about my Nephew Justin Johnson he tricked me good. He was passing out lottery tickets. So i proceeded to scratch mine off. As i did so my eyes got bigger and bigger and bigger then i started hollering and dancing and shouting I won 5000.00 dollars. I was excited flinging my arms wooohooooooo .......but that was all shattered he had played a trick on his old aunt Sissy. He had given me one of those fake tickets and had told everyone and they were all watching and laughing, and taking pictures. Wow what a big let down. Oh but his Aunt Sissy took it in stride. Justin your aunt Sissy loves you but............ you had better watch out. It may be when you least expect it but i will figure something out........ So that is how my Holiday went. Hope some one else can top that Christmas gift.

Christmas Candles

I made these this morning.  This is not my idea, I got it from Michelle's Rubber Room.  She has a lot of great ideas.  Pictures are from my stamps tho.  I colored them in with Bic Mark-it Pens.  Then melted the images into the candles.

Special Birthday Blog Hop Today

Kathy Queen of Peachy Keen is having a birthday today and her daughters are doing a special blog hop in her honor.  It was Emma's site CreativeTimeForMe that i was first introduced to Peachy Keen Stamps.  Since then i have gone hog while so to speak in buying them.  Ha Ha.  I love them.  So i  made this Card for Kathy Hoping she has a great day. 

I took a 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" pink cricut card stock  for the card
I used Summer In Paris Cart for the sofa done at 3"
I made the window, curtain, and valance free hand
and I tried to be careful with the eyes they are supposed to be in hiding.
I wrote  " Quiet, sssh, hide on the window with the gelly roll pin from PK

Inside  I went to the diet coke site (knowing that Kathy loves diet cokes)
and printed  4 diet coke cans cut them out and glue them all together to make it stiff
i found the candles on a piece of scrap paper cut the out and glue to coke can
i used zig 2 way glue.

Now for the back of the coke can I made my own  wobble
I took some jewelry wire wrapped it around my zig pen about 4 times
and cut it.  I took 2  1" circles  and punched a hole using a martha stewart punch  (little tiny hole)
I stuck both ends of the wire into the pink 1" circles and tape it down then i tape one end to my
card and the other to the back of the coke. (it works great)  I used  TERRIFICALLY TACKY TAPE
for both sides of my homemade wobble.

I made the Tear Kitty and the Pig Peeker and put behind the coke can.
I used the Happy Birthday from Joyslife's Father and Son's Stamps.
I found the surprise part off of a piece of scrap.

If any one sees this please let Kathy know i made her this card and maybe she might come by and look at it.
The special hop starts at this site
