first post in a while...& probably 1st today

Good morning... noon all my crafty friends.  today i'll probably post throughout the day with different projects in stead of posting them all at the same time. My nephew is visiting from Utah and we don't have a ton of time with him or his parents.  and we'll be going to church at 1pm our time so I'll have to take a break to get ready and enjoy.  so today I have 3 projects done so far...

 This first pic. is of some decorations I used for my Alice in Wonderland party.  They had feet but were easier to store without them.  aren't they cute?  It's not the best picture but  I had to share.  

Surprise Birthday Party

This next pic. is of a birthday card I made using  the crafts meow stamps and their challenge layout. 
Challenges this one is entering:
The Crafts Meow Nov. sketch
Little Scrap pieces anything goes

And my favorite so far, just because I love Christmas, is my dry embossed card using the snowflake and Swiss dots embossing folders for cuttlebug, some paper that I loved and took a sample of  5 years ago from my MIL's stash, I knew i'd make a cute Christmas card with it & she said it was okay to take some.  the ribbon is from Walmart in their sewing section; I just loved the sparkly gold.  and the wreath is from a set of stamps my mom bought from Joann to give me for Christmas a few years ago.  I sanded the gold banners to make the white core pop and tie into the background and i added a snowflake brad to tie in the snowflakes on the back.  the happy holidays metal sentiment I got years ago from my SIL, Karena, and couldn't figure out how to hold it on (it wouldn't attach at all) so I hot glued it on.  My 3 colors for this was RED, GREEN & GOLD & I used this weeks Retro sketch #36.  

Challenges this is entering:

I have to go get ready now so Happy Crafting & hopefully I'll have more for you later today!
