Merry and Bright Challenge Card and Thankfulness Day 9

 Have you noticed I do a lot of challenge cards? 
Hee hee! They motivate me! Especially ones with prizes!
Based on the sketch I needed a circle - so I went with this ornament from Holiday Hospitality. I just love how versatile it is! I stamped it on Night of Navy cs and embossed it with silver EP. I punched it out with my pink marvy circle punch and popped it up on a scalloped circle of silver cs cut with my purple marvy scalloped circle punch. I changed the sketch a bit and moved the squarish panel behind the circle. For this I used my snow fulurries embossing folder and inked up the side that would push into the cs! I love this technique and can't believe I haven't tried it sooner!
To top it off I used some wired silver ribbon and made a layered bow of sorts, and added a bit to the top of the ornament to make it look like it was hanging. Thanks for looking!

Today I am thankful for one of my besties, Natalie! We taught 4th grade together last year but she moved to first this year. I miss her terribly! She is hilarious, says what she thinks and isn't afraid to tell it like it is - oh she's always there with an extra Doctor Pepper when I forget mine!
This is one of my fave pics of us! We were at Joe's Crab Shack celebrating her birthday while at CKC in Des Moines last summer!

Who is the Krafty Mama?

Hi I'm the Krafty one! :) I'm the Queen to 2 little knights and a sweet princess. I married my knight in shining armor (kevlar) over 8 years ago and I am a REAL mom, wife and substitute teacher trying to be the best I can be! I love "krafting" but tend to buy more supplies than I actually use. I love make up, nail polish, hair products and fashion but have been known to leave the house in sweats a messy bun and no make up! I love to cook and bake but am guilty of feeding my kids McDonalds in a pinch. I love direct sales and have joined too many to mention! I would love to get to know you!
