It's a Small World Holiday Blog Hop

Happy Holidays Everyone!! Thanks for hopping by!!You should be coming from Jess's Blog
We have some very talented ladies!!
This is a tradition I started with my family a while ago. Every Christmas you get a new coffee mug. And inside you get some snowman soup!! I love snowman soup! It is best served with Baileys but I didn't have any little bottles
around my house!
Here is the poem that I attach to my Snowman Soup!!
When it's so cold that
you holler and whoop
It's time to bring out
the Snowman Soup!
Pour the packet in a mug.
Add marshmallows too.
And throw in these kisses
that are special just for you.
This one I put in a mug! I also etched the glass to add a personal effect! :)
All you need for Snowman soup is:
A package of hot chocolate, mini marshmallows, A candy cane and a few Hershey kisses!
So here is a list of all the Blogs!! In case you get lost along the way!

Cards for a Sweet Little Girl

So I stumbled upon this blog and really want everyone to try and join in!! So over at
Techniques by Trish She has written the following:
Madison, was in remission from Leukemia! Their family was over joyed that such a young girl had beat this vicious cancer (she's only 6 years old). However, just last week, their family was just hit with the most horrific news........Madison's cancer has returned.
Now I personally do not know Madison BUT i'm the type of person who wants to help whenever I can. I know that I cant cure her but I can help with making her day a little better by sending her a card to put a smile on her face. So, this is where i'm hoping to get your help.....i'm hoping to get a TON of cards to cheer up Madison. "Get well" cards and anything that is super girly would be perfect!!! And if you'd like to send a small gift, ex: a barbie or stuffed animal, im sure it would cheer her up and keep her company while she spends the next several weeks in the hospital. I know she loves pink, butterflies, and anything girly.
If your interested in helping please send your cards/packages to the following address by Friday, October 29th (please have it in the mail on or before that date):
Trisha Theo
Po Box 7806
North Port, Florida 34290
Thank you everyone in advance for spreading the word and helping this young girl get through such a hard time,
Trish
Ps....if you'd like to send a card to Madison's parents with words of encouragement or your prayers, their names are Bobby & Maria.
So if you ladies have time please make a card and send some smiles to this little girl!! :)

Fun-Mare Before Halloween Blog Hop!!

Welcome to the Fun-Mare Before Halloween Blog Hop!!!
You should be hopping from Cheryl's Blog! If you want to start at the start click HERE
We have some very talented ladies in this hop!! Some great spooky ideas!!
So for this blog hop I made sour cream containers filled with chocolate eye balls & chocolate pumpkins!!! Sounds good hey!!
So I used BoBunny Halloween paper, and stampin up stamps!! These remind me of Popsicles that I use to have as a child!! Here is a close up for you!!
To make these I just cut my paper 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 then I put double sided tape on both long sides and one short side. Then you take it and roll it like a tube (toilet paper roll) Then you stick your one side together add candies and then stick the other side together as seen above! I used a paper crimper to make the edges look like that!!
So the next stop on this Fun-Mare blog hop is Debbie's Blog
Happy Halloween Everyone!!

So yesterday I went to the scrapbook store and fell in love with the Halloween BoBunny paper! I do not normally make Halloween cards but I figured why not! When I seen the paper I thought of my bella stamp!
I have used the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #76 this weeks challenge is this sketch:
I used BoBunny paper, embossed it with a skull folder, sanded the embossed area.
Stamp is a bella stamp, colored with my copic markers.
I used glossy accents on the pumpkin and sprayed the image with glimmer mist.

Wall Skulls! with my Silhouette

So my daughter had left for two weeks and we decided to paint her room and put up some skulls! She wanted her room to be pink with lime green doors! She has a quilt & sheets that are lime green with other colors on it as well so that is where she got the idea from I think!
She has the quilt with her so I couldn't take pictures of her bed made!
I made all the skulls with my silhouette!! I love that machine!!
I hope she loves her room!! :)
