Thanks Card

I love simple cards and this card I made today is just that! I got the idea from here. I just luv, luv her style! Check it out! The DP is by Me & My Big Ideas and the die cut flower and thanks is by Cuttlebug. The butterfly punch is Martha Stewart. I embossed the background with a stamp by Autumn Leaves and clear embossing powder. Very simple, but beautiful. Thanks for stopping by again today!

Snow/ice day!

Our church services were cancelled today because of all the ice and snow. The boys could not wait to get outside this morning and play (yesterday was very nasty with all the sleet and freezing rain). We went sledding with the lawnmower! They had a blast! School is out tomorrow, but unfortunately its back to work for me! Hope to get some more cards posted this week so please check back. Hope everyone has a wonderful week (I can't believe tomorrow is the 1st of February!)

100th day at school project for my 6-year old son

My son's school is celebrating their 100th day at school next week, so they had a project where they had to make something out of a 100 of something (i.e. 100 macaroni, cotton balls, etc). He decided he wanted to take a 100 M&Ms (his favorite candy) and make a rainbow (I thought this was a great idea and couldn't wait to help him get started with his project. The first picture is of him (he's in kindergarten) and the second is our finished project. I thought it turned out just terrific!!

Happy Birthday Grandma/Craft Room

I thought I would add some new pictures of my crafting room. It's always evolving (I guess because I'm always adding to my stash of supplies!!) I share this room with my 2 boys who use half the room as their play room. I guess its OUR "play room" ;) Hope everyone has had a wonderful weekend. Also here is a card I made for my grandmother. It's her 84th birthday today!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!!

I'm doing another quick post to show you a "thinking of you" card that I made for my great-aunt who has been sick for several weeks. I am entering this card into the Stamp Something Challenge for this week. The challenge is to use the colors blue and white. I just love this color combo!

Creative Belli Challenge #82

Well, I was busy this weekend making cards for several birthdays that I have coming up in January and February. Here is a card that I made and I thought I would enter it into the Creative Belli Challenge #82. The challenge is to use glitter or rhinestones. I have used some gems as well as some Stickles on the icecream cone. My DP also has some areas that are glittered. I thought it made the icecream look yummy, yummy delicious! Hope you enjoy! God Bless and have a wonderful Monday!

Happy New Year!

Sorry I haven't posted in quite a while! I have been soooo very busy with the kids being out of school and the holidays! I hope everyone has a blessed New year and that God will richly bless each and everyone of you in 2010. Here is a card that my son (age 6) and I made on New year's eve night. He picked out the images to cut out on the Cricut and picked the colors and I helped him put it all together. He wanted to make this card for a special aunt who has recently been sick. I am entering this into the challenge on My Pink Stamper. She has some wonderful videos on the Cricut as well as some great giveaways (deadline is on Monday 1/4/10). Have a great weekend everyone!
