Panda FEVER!

Hello Friends!!!
It's been a while since I posted any of my creations. I've been busy today, looking at patterns from LSHD and deciding what I wanted to make, what I was in the mood to make.
So, after much thought I decided to use a couple of different patterns from LSHD and make some panda bears for Valentine's day!!
Yes, I said Valentine's day. I'm so in the mood to use my imagination on something LOVE related.
My first photo I'd like to share with you is just a photo mat or tag...could be either one. It was been using the rough edge bear pattern from Little Scraps of Heaven Designs (LSHD).
I just love how these patterns can be used for any type of bear that you can imagine to make.
Next is just a set I made using the Love Hot Air balloon pattern from LSHD.
I also made a couple of extra peeker bears to go along with it.
Wouldn't this look so cute on a Valentine scrapbook layout?
I have some K&Company paper called Valentine Sweetheart that I plan to use them with. Be watching for the layout in the next couple of weeks.
Well friends, it's time to let you go. But before going....I want to wish you a very Happy New Year! Make 2012 the best year ever!
Blessings.

Pillow Boxes for Sale

Hello friends!
I have tons of pillow box gift card holders left from the craft fair that we went to. If you are interested in purchasing a few, they are 50 cents each. They shipping should be no more than $2.00 and I can fit about 4 of them in one yellow envelope unfolded. 
Here are a couple of samples of what I have..

 These have been sold, but they come with the band and a tag around them.

In memory of....

Hello friends.
I hope the month of December and all the Christmas festivities are keeping you busy and happy this year.
 
I lost a very important part of our family on December 7,2011. My dear, sweet mother in law, Christine, passed away unexpectedly. She was 77 yrs old. I've had a really hard time dealing with her passing. She always had a way of making you crack up laughing or saying the darndest things at the most inappropriate times. That was just her. 
She was one of the most stubborn women I've ever met in my life. The one thing that stands out most to me in the 24 yrs that I've known her was her love for her family. She LOVED her family.  Always made sure we were fed or had drinks when we came to visit. She was a very giving person...giving to her family.
Take the time this Christmas season to love and cherish your family. If you have sqaubled with someone, go make it right. Don't hold grudges. Embrace life and love the ones you have. Life is short and fleeting.
Make sure that you come to know Jesus as your Lord and Savior. If you don't know how....ask me! I'd be thrilled to tell you how to know the King of Kings.
Much love this Christmas season to you and yours.
Blessings.
Margaret

Day 3 of Tis the Season Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to day 3 of the Tis the Season Blog Hop.
If you happened here by chance you can go back and start here at Elsa's .


Today I wanted to share a little purse gift bag that I made using the cricut cartridge Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. I really like this cart.


Paper is from Martha Stewart and is so darn cute. I just love the little gum drops, don't you. I added a cardstock sticker of milk and cookies to the front with 2 green sticker jewels. The ribbon I used reminds me of a candy cane and looks so awesome with all the gumdrops, don't ya think?

I hope you have enjoyed the blog hop. Hop on over and see what Stacie has in store for you. So much talent in this hop.

Blessings and Merry Christmas!
