Steam Punk Blog Hop

This month I have once again challenged my group to think outside the box and to go from bright colors, flowers and butterflies to gears, clocks and grungy colors with our November Steam Punk Blog Hop.

Lorby's World will be sponsoring this hop with a $10 gift card to Michaels. Please begin at Lorby's World (blog address here) to find out how to enter the drawing.

My Steam Punk Creation:

I'm new to Steam Punk, but I enjoyed making this tag.  I used Graphic 45 Steam Punk paper.

Thanks for stopping by, I will be the last person on the blog today.

To "Die" For Blog Hop

Welcome to the Krazy Crafting Crew's October blog hop: To "Die" For. Many crafters today have die cutting machines and we thought it would be fun to let them show off some of the work they do with their machines and tell us which machine they own. I can guarantee you will have a fun time looking at all their creations and if you're in the mood for ...a new die cutting machine, their work might sway you on which one to buy.

Our hostess for this hop is Jearise from Lorby's World and her blog is the place to start. She will have a give away going on so make sure you check out how to get signed up for that while you're visiting her.

Now let the fun begin...

We have several weddings and engagements happening around here.  I used my Cricut Expression to cut the card and the different layers.  This card is for our Pastor's future daughter in law.  The Cricut makes it easier for me to get the die cuts and size I want.

Thank you for stopping by and now on to Paula -

Aunt and Uncle Day

This is a special card I made for my Aunt and Uncle.  My Aunt was my Mother's only sister and such a special link to my past.  My Aunt and Uncle lived their entire lives in Jefferson County Alabama.  After Seventy something years :-) they relocated recently to Arizona to live near their daughter.  I miss them so much, but the memories in my heart are enough to last me a lifetime.
