OMG, is it seriously only 2 days until Christmas?!?!?  Where the heck did this month go? 

Anyone who knows me at all knows that I adore my Cheekies, and I find any way possible to use them.  Cheekies have graced cookies, cakes, cards, scrapbook pages, and they have even made it to gift wrap, and wreaths!!! I’m constantly trying to think of new ways to use my favorite girls! 

With Christmas just a few days away, I sat in my kitchen today wondering what I could do for my last project as GD for TGF.  I wanted to do something fun, something innovative, something that I haven’t seen in the gallery yet.  Then I got to pondering…I think I may need a drink…  Ok, so then it hit me!!!

I just had to make these totally Cheekie Cocktail Glasses!

I etched my beloved Cheekies into martini glasses, because after a long day of being in the kitchen baking up a storm for all of the last minute guests who keep popping into our house, I’m going to need a Cheekie Cocktail, or two! ha ha ha 

 

Really though, I’m not much of a drinker, but hey, you’ll probably find me drinking water out of these, just because they are sooooooo stinking cute!

I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas, or whatever winter holiday you celebrate.  I’m sad that this is my last post for my guest spot on TGF, but add my blog to your list as I’m not going anywhere!  I’ll be participating in all the super duper fun challenges (because believe it or not, my set of Cheekies is NOT complete) and contributing in any way I can!  I Love the Farm and I’m so grateful for my time here, to Jess and Marie I want to send you huge virtual hugs and oh so much gratitude!  Thanks girls for such a great company, adorable stamps, and the opportunity to showcase just a few things that I can do with your images.  To all of the friends of the Farm out there, Don’t feel limited to ink and paper, I think I’ve shown you that there is WAY more you can do, and I haven’t even scratched the surface! Get to crafting friends!  I can’t wait to see what the New Year brings!

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello there Unity Crafters!!!!! Today marks my very first day in the Growing in Unity event.  Today I'm featuring a card that I made using the set {Jar Full of} Sweetness.  Those of you who know me, know that I'm completely addicted to apothecary jars and have lots of them filled with all sorts of candies on my countertop.  I adore them and i'll never stop collecting them.  So, when I saw this set, I knew I HAD TO HAVE it straight away!
I'm very new to making shaker cards but I thought it would be perfect to have the little sequins I purchased from Firefly Crafts inside the jars to make it look like little candies in there!

I also used a few of the flowers I purchased from Firefly Crafts as well, they are made by Wild Orchid and they are absolutely perfect!






I hope you enjoyed this card today and it inspired you to make something crafty! Surf the Unity site and find a cute stamp and get with it! he he he! See you all tomorrow!
Have a Crafty Day!
