Holiday Update and Ikea Expedit!

Hello Friends!! I just wanted to give a quick update. I have been out of town since last Wednesday and will be busy again starting tomorrow. I have no time to work on any challenges right now :( I really want to because I just got TWO 4 shelf Expedit from Ikea this past Sunday the 27th. They had a deal going on for Sunday only they were $19.99. I wanted to get the 8 shelf one plus a 4, but they didn't have a 8 shelf in white. So I just went with Two 4 shelves. I love them, wow why haven't I gotten them sooner. I have two Ikea's near me. One is two hours away, the other is 3 hours away. I think it is worth it, plus I buy other goodies from them all the time. I got both the sets all sit up. I'll have to post pics whenever things settle down around here. I hope to enter challenges before next week. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving.

Hugs, Sheena

Pictures of my new expedit will follow in near future. I recommend them if you need great storage for your paper/paper packs they fit perfectly.

CARDZ TV Challenge #1

This is CARDZ TV 1st Challenge with a Design Team. For this challenge is called "Just My Style" make a card doing what you do best. Your favorite technique. Well I have so many favorite ways to make cards, but I really love using pattern paper for all my cuts and inking the edges. Just here recently I really started liking inking. I would ink every so often before, but I just love it when you use all pattern papers for the cuts and ink all the edges. I also love making my own Sky background paper by using clouds etc. So for my Cute little card I made a night card, this card could be used for a baby card. You could always add a stamp sentiment on the front or just put one inside. If you haven't seen Mary's work over at CARDZ TV be sure to check it out. Mary is such a Sweet lady!

Hello Friends!

I have been so busy this past week/weekend. First I have been working on my Christmas cards. That has got me missing some challenges I want to enter, but I'll work today to try my best to make it in them. Second, our upstairs Neighbors water line that goes to his washer has been leaking for the past Two Weeks down into our Coat closet and Laundry Closet. If it wasn't for me putting my Christmas tree up early we wouldn't have known til after Thanksgiving and the leak would have been a lot worse. He didn't have the line tightened. If anyone has any good tips for keeping Mold/Mildew away from where the water leaked please let me know. We have a fan on to dry it out. It has helped a lot. Our maintenance said they will be back out to spray some stuff, but we don't see them coming back out here. They were in a super hurry the other day when they did have to come fix the leak. It was close for them to be going home. Plus our maintenance is on the shaddy side..eeek. Lease will be up next year an we hope to buy our own place. So sorry if I haven't been posting on anyone's blog or watching videos. I have been busy and upset with all this water leak stuff.

On a better note. I won at CARDZ TV!!! Yay!! If no one has been over to Mary's blog to watch her awesome videos and see her beautiful cards, go check it out. CARDZ TV

I hope everyone has had a Great weekend so far. I hope to make some post today. I got my coffee in me, I'm ready to go :) :)

Cooking With Cricut Challenge #58

Here is what I made for Cooking With Cricut challenge this week. This week you had to make a project using Cookies, Cookie Monster and/or Clocks. This week was Cookie Monsters Birthday. I don't own a Sesame Street cart..so I came up with my own twist of having Cookie Monster on my card. I used Blue lettering. I think it turned out cute. After making this fun card, I'm now hungry for some cookies...I guess a fun size snickers will do for now..hehe :)

I Used/Recipe:
Wausau Cardstock
Best Occasions cardstock from WM
Mickey Font cart- (Cookie) 1"-- (time) 3/4"
P Schoolbook cart- Circles range in size from 1/4" to 4 1/2" (card base is 4 1/2")--Oval 2 1/4"
PDDU cart- Clock top -- I have several carts that have clocks, but none were what I wanted, so I made my own. I used circles and a scrap grave stone from PDDU for the top of the clock. Not sure size of the top.
SU Dimensionals
CTMH Ink- Desert Sand
White gel pen
Sharpie pen
Silver gel pen
4 1/2" x 4 1/2" card
*I free hand the bite in the cookie*
