Hi ladies

  Here is a peek at what we are making for Club on Saturday.  Like I said in the post cards, you do not need to bring anything, but if you want to make sure you have the DSP you want, you are welcome to bring your own. 


See you Saturday

Butterfly Thank You

Posted by emileehathaway on November 10, 2009

Sorry it’s been a while since posting … again, but I have had two really sick kiddos.  We have had the croup for the last week and a half and I am here to tell you, it’s not fun!!  Carson started feeling sick on Sunday night, by Tuesday morning we were at the Dr.’s, then Kyler started filling icky on Wednesday night, so back to the docs on Thursday and back again on Saturday for the last treatment.  So, needless to say I haven’t had 1 minute to do anything!  But we are on the mend and the house has been cleaned and lysoled, floors moped and laundry done so I feel good about spending a couple of minutes on the computer!  🙂

I don’t know if any of you visit Dawn McVey’s blog My Favorite Things, but I have to say she is one of my favorite’s!   I love her stamping style and she has a super cute personality.  Anyway, the other day she posted these darling butterfly “embellies” as she called them and I fell in love with the card she made!  I had a couple of thank you’s to make so I hurried and whipped up 3 or 4 of these bad boys.  I love her color combo and so why mess with a good thing, right?  I used tempting turquoise, kraft, and pixie pink.  I love the simple look of the card with one big embellishment that is the focal point.


I hope you are having a good week and I’ll be back in a couple of days with more Christmas goodness!


Stamps:  all in a row, season of joy
Paper:  Tempting turquoise, pixie pink, kraft

Are you ready for the holidays?

Posted by emileehathaway on November 3, 2009

I am!  I have been Christmas shopping since August!  I love Christmas, it is my favorite holiday! 

I got my Christmas supplies order and couldn’t wait to use my new goodies and here are the first 2 things I made.  The box is super duper cute and super easy to use!  You get five in a package and these are going to be awesome neighbor gifts.  All I need to do is a little holiday baking … But that will need to wait until December! 🙂


The little canister is filled with candy for my sweetie … it is simply a Crystal light canister modified. 


Don’t you love the ornament on top?  I’ve seen these all over the internet so I don’t know who to give credit to, but it is just 3 ornament punches folded in half, hooked together and attached to the lid.

Both of these projects together took only 20 minutes!  Can you believe that? 

Have a super day! 


Stamps:  Definitely Decorative
Papers:  DSP from Christmas Jingle Simply Scrappin’
Ink: Real Red
Goodies:  Treat Boxes, Real Red polka dot ribbon, ornament punch, metal edge tags

Happy Halloween!!

Posted by emileehathaway on November 1, 2009

I hope you had a super fun Halloween.  We did!  It was fun taking the kids out trick or treating.  Kyler was so excited to get candy!

It was super cute because at each house he would say “Trick or treat … thank you for the candies!!!”

Happy Halloween from my little bunch of clowns!
