Halloween Already????

Happy Thursday Everyone! Halloween??? Already??? What?? Well... Noooo.... It's  not exactly October just yet, but I have been wanting to try out my Mini Monster's cartridge for sooo long that I thought... Why Not? LOL :o)  I don't care for Summer much, I'm more of a Fall and Spring kind of girl! Since my kids will be starting school in a couple of weeks I thought I would get a Jump start on my fall cards.... I really like how this turned out... it's exactly how I pictured it would come out... How often does that happen? :o) So here's to Halloween!!!!

I Made $5 off of this card! LOL

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday to you all! I wanted to share with you this card I made and I got $5 out of the deal as well.... :o) As I told you yesterday my Middle Son Juston turned 15 yrs. old.... Well in my family I tell ALL my boys that when it's someones Birthday or Holiday or whatever.... that requires a card - to make it themselves instead of buying a card.... It means more when it is made from the heart... RIGHT???? Well my oldest boy Mathew who is 17 yrs. old was asked if he made his brother a card yet??? And well.... you know what the answer is.... LOL And so he says you make him one for me mom.... I reply with... sure for $1.50, He says OK... I say if you want the inside done it will cost $2.50 for the card..... So My Son.... Who is also employed and has his own money says.... I'll give you $5 for it.... I say SURE! So I made him this card to give to his brother for his Birthday! :)

Ho Hum kind of day again!

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone! I hope you are all having a great week! I've still got my Ho Hum days going on and can't wait for my new supplies to get here! I don't know about you but for me sometimes looking at ALL the stuff in my Scraproom makes me think I don't need it (GASP) or I'm just tired of it and need something new.... I'm feeling the "Need something New" Thing and just keep thinking about the new stuff I ordered and I'm ignoring the stuff I already have.... I don't want to make anything... I have 6 brand new cartridges waiting for me to play with them... and yet I'm not feeling it.... I don't think I've lost my Mojo yet again, I just think I want something "NEW"....  Crazy? Probably... :o) Anyway, I totally took this card straight from my old 2006 Paper Crafts Magazine! I changed the colors and papers of course but it's pretty much a copy of the card in that magazine! I really like the colors I chose since I was going for a masculine look... Let me know what you think.... :o)

What do U think this needs???

Happy Tuesday everyone! Sorry I didn't post yesterday but I've been a little busy... and I'm actually very busy again today as well.... running to Dr. and shopping.... We live near the  Colorado border and because I live in such a small town, we have to travel out of state for shopping and Dr. appts sometimes.... Sooo that's what I'm up to this week.... traveling to these places can take upwards of 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours one way, sooo driving and then shopping or Dr. appts. become an ALL day event! But Not to worry I got ya covered now... I was able to schedule my posts this week so you should be able to see some of the work I've been doing.... not as much Cricut this week as stamping but it's ALL GOOD! LOL
Sooooo, I made this baby boy card and I'm not sure if I need to add something to it??? I think I do but WHAT??? I tried adding a sentiment but it didn't look right to me... So I'm asking all of you... What do U think this needs?? The details will be under the picture, please feel free to leave me a comment on what you think I need to add to this card.... Thanks and have a terrific day! :)

Another Forever Young Card!!!!

Hello Everyone! Happy Thursday to you all! I have made yet another card with my Forever Young Cartridge.... I know I've said this already but "I LOVE THIS CARTRIDGE"!!!! I don't know why, other than it has such great flower cuts that I can't get enough of.... I know I'm CRAZY..... But it's what I seem to like a lot of right now! :) I guess I will stop yelling and start chatting with ya about the simple card that I made.... :) LOL
I think using paper with lots of writing on it doesn't need much to add to it... Of course I said that is "ME" soooo that is why I made this simple Birthday card with just adding a large flower and ribbon to it... I think sometimes simple is just as cute as something with lots of layers.... :) Anyway here is the card that I made... I hope you like it! :)
I also wanted to say sorry for the glare... For the life of me I could not get the glare from the rub on to stop well "glaring"!!! LOL Geez...
