Jolly Holidays House shaped card

Add caption
I just love this little house from Jolly Holidays.  I used DS to weld two together for a card liner.  The stamps are Stampin up and I used stickles to highlight all the snow.  The card is cut at 5.5 inches.

The craft room is starting to get organized.  I've realized I just plain have too much stuff.  I need to quit collecting so many "alterables"  I think I will use a lot of them for Christmas wrapping this year (I have tons of tins,buckets,bags,frames,etc).
Here's the craft room so far:
 Thats our old kitchen table, now craft table.  Thats our new dog, Daisy, on the bean bag chair-sure glad I spent all that money on a dog bed.   Here is my next up project that just came (cotton grocery bags, LOTS of them).  Thanks for looking!

Thanksgiving Turkey paper piecing svg freebie

I've pretty much been skipping Thanksgiving this year.  We have been so busy with the move that by the time I get organized and unpacked it will be time to think Christmas projects.  That said, this week's freebie is a paper piecing svg/png for the turkey on my header.  I have it laid out on the mat for different colors (see sample Lo below).  If you cut it smaller than import size on scal2, you may have to draw on the boot buckles or leave them off, since they are so small.   Happy  Cutting!PSI_ThanksgivingTurkey

First winter and Christmas cards of the year

My crafting space is almost unpacked.  Sometimes I think its as much fun to organize craft stuff as it is to use it.  I'm been downsizing and I'm determined to start using some of my goodies rather than just collecting them-especially all my "alterables".  I needed to initiate the space so I made a couple of cards.  The first is done with Jolly holidays, snowman is at 3.5 inches.  I used pearls for buttons and a puffball for the hat, paper is DCWV and Stampin Up.  The stamp is SU.  I need some pink cheeks on the snowman, but I have yet to find my chalks since the move. 

The second was done with Give a hoot.  My friend just got it and brought it over to "test".  I have to say I have never given that cart a second look, but now that I've looked through it, I think I have to add it to my collection. 
Thanks for looking!

SVG tester needed for a Gerbera Daisy file

I had a request earlier for my old gerbera daisy, however, that file has long expired (twice).  I have since switched computers (also twice and couldn't find it.   I made a new one, but I'm in the middle of moving and don't have my craft area set up yet - only a small fraction of it has made it to the new house yet since I have way, way, way too much stuff and it is going to take several trips back to the old house.   SOOO, I'm wondering if someone would like to download it and test it, come back and post how it works? 
You can download HERE and check the link above for directions.

UPDATE: Thank you for testing out the new file Myrna, glad it works!
