100 post winner and stuff....

Thank to all the wonderful bloggers out there left such nice comments on my 100th post! Everyone gets a treat! If I did not e-mail you requesting your address, please let me know! My computer is acting up and I had to sign back on a couple times.
The lucky winner for the crown is Zakka Life! Please take a moment to see her little demo! I can't wait to try it out!
~ Our home is safe from the fires but not from the smoke! We are fairly close to Camp Pendelton's fire and it's just awful! The sky is orange. We are staying in the with air conditioner on auto and 2 air purifiers running.
~As you may have read earlier, I went to my Mom's in Borrego Springs for a visit with Dyllan on Sat, and came home on Monday. During the stay, the only time the tv was on was to play Dyllan's Dvd's. And plus the air was fantastic in the desert, blue skys with lots of wind. We had no clue to what was going on in california until Monday. All the normal ways out of Borrego were closed or on fire. I ended up adding 2 hrs onto my already 2 hr drive to take the "back" way out of Salton Sea and Palm Springs route. I will post pic's from this visit soon.
Please enjoy my card creations!

I learned the art of "punch craft" from a friends on tuesday while Dyllan was in pre-school.
I love the frog the best. He required: 4 oval punches, 1 round, some little circles for the eyes and a flower punches for the toes.
The pink flower is obvious that I used 2 sizes in ovals, a mini flower in the center and I cut a circle punch in 1/2 for the leaves.

The lady bugs were oh so simple and the folded flower was fun to make!
I used 5 tags, tiney flower, and butons. I'll add a demo on this one another time.
I don't own these punches, but I do have the cricut which can make multiples of these shapes in various sizes for me!

The monkey was a little tricky you can see the different shapes ans sizes we used. The arm and legs are from a punch my friend uses with gift card holder making.
The bunny is my creation! Dyllan is a magician for halloween. I covered a small pail with black paper and added a foam rim. After making the bunny, I added him to the rim. and on his butt is a cotton ball. After halloween I'll post pics of his full costume.
I hosted a halloween card contest with my scrapbook group and added a few of my own.
These are all mine using scraps, buttons,glitter, and just 1 CTMH stamp set.

I could not stop making them once I got started so I'll post more before I give them away!
