Christmas in July Crop At Creative Accents

Well didn't get a hole lot done but it was really great to visit, have some laugh's, see what everyone else has been up to..
Hope the  floors have dried out a bit for them at Creative Accents, they had a roof drain back up on Friday night, when we had a good soaking rain and thundre shower go through.  What a mess Julie and Tara had to clean up, quite a bit of paper ruined with water.. 

Anyway they were great about it and we had a good time with the big fan's running in the back ground..

So here is what I got done as far a Xmas cards went..
On Saturday wanted to play with my new stamps so did this card...

It's a set of Fairy Stamps and this one is from the set called Autumn. 

This card again Fairy from the same set.. But I used the Distress Pens on the stamp.. Tara let me borrow her set to give a try.. I do believe I will have to get myself a set...

Well thanks for stopping by.. come back soon.. more stuff on its way.. I was lucky enough to get to the SOTM for Aug. for Creative Accents.. 

Also still a few days left to get into the Challenge

The first Challenge I am entering her in is  Stamptacular Sunday Challenge
I haven't entered this one in awhile but I always look to see what is going on.. They have some neat ideas and challenges.. For this weeks challenge you will create a card or project that uses TWO or More Dies!I used two different spellbinder dies around the girl.

The Second Challenge is Crazy 4 Challenges  Again another that I always look at and have entered a few times..  Stitching ~ Faux or Real  is the challenge this week.. I have Faux going around the edge of the card.. It just needed something and that was it..

Also did some others but you will have to come back and see later.. Aug.. 1 or there about's..

What I did before CARDS

A few years back before I got hooked on making cards one of my pastimes was Cross Stitch.
Well we had some company a few weeks ago and I had to get a couple of rooms tidy so they had some where to sleep..(you know how your spare rooms become collection places)
In the process of the tidy up I got some of my Cross Stitch together, with the backing and frames all in one box..

So that ment I had to start seriously thinking about putting them together so they could be displayed the way I orginally wanted.. Last Sunday was the day.. to hot to work in card room upstairs I headed for the basement and some coolness..
I won't bore you with the time it took me to figure out (remember) how to mount these and frame them .. ( I should put a plug in here for my husband, he painted the frames up for me really quickly when I asked they were just plain pine and I wanted black)

First shot is of them hanging in the dinning room.. followed with not the best pic's of them but enough to show you..

The frames are 9-1/2" X 11-1/2"
