Teddy Bear Parade

Welcome to Tina Time!!

This week I am hosting my "beary" own Teddy Bear Parade!!  This is such a fun cartridge, that I wanted to share some of my favorites, although I think every little bear on this cartridge is adorable and I will be making all of them sometime in the near future.... but this week I am showing my far!!  Since my mom found this cartridge for me, I am dedicating this Parade to her... this week is for you, Mom...

Since it is New Years (Eve), I thought the New Year Bear was super cute!!  Every year I make a "box" or jar or something to save a little cash for up coming races and Expo's or maybe a new cartridge that I just have to have... and this year, I made a matchbox and placed the New Years Bear on top!

Isn't he cute???

Added bonus, a "Beary", Merry Christmas Bear I made to put on this darling box for my Hubby!  I put a pair of "Readers" in there, and I actually think he liked the box more... hahahahahaha....  (Not the best picture) but I flocked the fur...he was cut at 4"

Make sure to become a follower if you are not already, and leave a comment each day.  I will have several prizes I will be giving away this week...  Gift cards to Joann's and Michael's.

Lots of surprises ahead...

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas everyone!!  I am sharing one last Christmas post this year... and then I will be saving up for my very own Teddy Bear Parade, beginning January 1st-7th!!  I promise it will be fun and I hope you all stop by...

I bought these cake carriers at the $ store... thinking they would make a great gift!  I was right!

Christmas is the prefect time to bake, and baking makes great neighbor gifts, and well... you guessed it! I will be using these carriers for delivering!
I cut the phrase "Merry Christmas" at 3-1/2 inches out of red vinyl and placed on the lid.  Added a pretty Christmas bow...Voila!  Simple!

I made my mom's Cinnamon Roll recipe, and they looks so delicious!  ( Yes, I had one too many...)  Who wouldn't want to get this dropped off at your front door??

Secret Santa gifts

We did a Secret Santa exchange at work this year, it was a ton of fun!!  I had the Best Secret Santa... but below are a few of the gifts I made for mine...
Each day we left a little something for our "Secret Santa."

I left mine a hand sanitizer one morning... this was so very easy to make!!!

Another day, I made a cute Christmas Cracker filled with hair ties and protein bar.  I cut this at fit to page and added pretty bows via the Bow-dabra at the ends.
And I made this darling coffee cup, cut at fit to page which makes it still very small... but it was perfect for some lip balm:
The other days, I left a wrapped gift, no Cricut!  Hahaha... It was fun and I think we will do it again next year!!

Teddy Bear Parade-coming soon

Just a little note:  The first week of January, I will be hosting my own Teddy Bear Parade!  You'll want to make sure to stop by each day to take a peek, as I will be offering a prize or two- to lucky blog followers!!   I can't wait!!

Hubby's Hat...

When I told my hubby that I was going to make him a hat, he told me there would be no way he would ever wear a stocking cap!!  After all, we live in AZ rarely a need for a winter like hat here... but he could have at least said he would wear one... right???

Well, once I finished the first couple hats, I showed him and he said he wanted one... WHAT???  He said he would put it in his golf bag for cold mornings... I took it as a compliment... so I made him one!  He better wear it least!!  Hahahahha

Gift Cards

This year I decided to get my staff iTunes cards for Christmas, and I thought I would make a Gift Card holder for them.  I love the little Elf on PPDU and had to make him again this year!  I cut him at 3-1/2" and added a little pompom for his hat!
Using Artiste cartridge I cut out the Gift Card hold at 4-3/4" and embossed using apparently the only Christmas folder I have, snowflakes and Voila!  Done... made 10 of these cute little Elves...

Knifty Knitter Hats

I have wanted to knit hats on the loom for sometime, and I was finally able to take a class at Jo Ann's.  Fairly easy to knit on the round looms, below are the first ones... the little pink ones with the "flower trim" is the one I made in class... the pink/white and Green/white ones I made on my own... not too bad for a first timer!!
