gyspy challenge- gold and black

This week Nilda asked us to do a gold and black challenge. WEll, when she said black and gold I knew exactly what I wanted to do. I seem to have a one track mind when it comes to black and gold. I am a huge huge huge Pittsburg Steelers fan. This is what I came up with. Of course I would have loved to have seen the Steelers back in the Superbowl but I wanted them to know that I am still very proud to be a Steelers fan even though they didn't make it all the way this year. I hope you like it and thank you so much for looking and for leaving a comment

Party Favors Gypsy DT project

This week at http://the-gypsyspot.blogspot.com/ Nilda asked us to make party favors. I kept trying to think what kind of party favor I would make since New Years was over. Then it hit me, Valentine's Day is right around the corner. So I made these for my kids. In the bags I put Dove chocolate and in the sour cream containers I put M & M's. I love making the sour cream containers, they are so easy to make. I cut the rectangle out with my gypsy and added the heart from George to the center of the containers. For the boxes I used TBBM and used BB for the word love that is cut out in the center of the boxes. I then took the cutout of the word and put on the sour cream containers and the heart cutout from the container I put on the boxes. Wow, that sure is clear as mud isn't it...lol...if you look at the picture you will understand what I was trying to say. I hope you like them. They were a lot of fun to make. Thank you all again for being so patient while I was away. It is so nice to be back.

2010 Gypsy DT project card

I have been so far behind this last month getting anything posted to my blog or even the message board. I am so sorry for that. Hopefully I am just about ready to get "back to normal" if there is such a thing. This week over at the Gypsy DT, Nilda asked us to make a circle card welding 2010 somewhere on the card. Well since it was after New Years before I started on mine I was almost at a loss on what to do until one of my very dear friends told me it was his birthday on that Monday. I knew exactly what I was going to do then. I turned what could have been a New Years card into a birthday card. I hope you like it and thank you so much for looking and commenting and thank you so so much for being patient with me during my little break. Hopefully I am just about ready to get back to things full force.
