Puppy LOVE....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!
I hope you all had a Fabulous Weekend!
I had sooooo much fun at my Crop on
Friday night! I ended up knowing several
people that attended it.... It was a big surprise
for a lot of them to see me there and vice versa.
I told my hubby that if I enjoyed it I would do
it again next month. Well... I have to say I had a
BLAST! The gals that I sat with Laughed and joked
all night... I think we were the only table doing that!
The owner of the store was sooo happy to see a group
of ladies laughing and joking and scrapping all at the same
time. Of course I was making cards while they all scrapped.
I do have a layout from that night, but I haven't put it together
yet. When I do, I'll post it for ya! :o) Ohhhh and I also got
volunteered to Host a Cricut class! I was totally surprised as
to how little they know about their machines.... Of course I'm
far from being an expert, but I use my machines daily and try
to get the most out of them... I also brought my (Gasp) GYPSY
with me!!! Yes, the tool I least like! LOL To be totally honest with
you... it was helpful to take that (1) item instead of the #### cartridges
I own with me! And it helped several people out... So I will
be bringing it with me next month as well...
Ok enough chit chat about my fun crop...
Here is today's Card! :o)

Card stock, DP, Stamp, Ink, Punch - Stampin' Up
Cartridges - Easter (#42) on the overlay is
Cut @ 1 3/4"
Sugar & Spice - (Circle) Cut @ 2 3/4"
Sweet Hearts - (Doggie) Cut @ 2 1/4"
using the flip button
Beige Pearls for the dogs eyes - Kaiser Craft

Well... That's my card for today!
Mi-Mi will be here tomorrow with
something to show you... I'll be out
doing my monthly grocery shopping...
I've kind of put it off for a few more
days than I should and my family
says I better feed them! LOL
Have an AWESOME Day!!!

Giddyup Birthday...

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone!
I can't believe the week is almost over yet again!
I'm actually going to a crop tomorrow night!
I haven't been to a crop it like 3 years...
I'm looking forward to it... I have a couple of
friends who are also going... They asked me to bring 
one of my Cricuts and I thought it would be the
perfect time to bring my Gypsy along...
All my cartridges are on it so they will have a 
LARGE selection to choose from! :o)
I've already "Pre-Done" my cards... They are all
cut and ready to be put together... So, I'm
hoping they will all get done tomorrow night...
But I DO plan to talk most of the night...
Sooo, let's hope I get some work done! Tehehehe
Here is my last masculine card for the week!
I hope you enjoyed looking at them as much
as I enjoyed showing them to you! :o)

so I just used an alternative! Well that
is it for me this week! Be on the look out
for Mi-Mi... I'm sure she has something
wonderful to show you! I hope you have a
great week/weekend! And I'll see you all back here
on Monday! Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

a HUGE Packers Fan and as soon as the game was
over... he was kind enough to give me a call...
Just to gloat! As soon as I saw his name pop up on my phone
I thought, Oh No.... Here we go! And yes he threw a few digs at
my Wonderful Bears team.... Sooo I'm a little Bummed... :o(

for the hat and heart and of course
I needed to use googlie eyes... :o)

Juston who is 15 1/2 yrs. old comes inside
last night to tell me... Mom.... You are not gonna
believe who I just seen! I Laugh at him and say WHO?
Remember we live in the middle of no where!!! :o)
He and his friend are out in the freezing cold walking
around when they go stop by the Shell Gas Station
to warm up a bit.... and who walks into said Gas Station???
TIGER WOODS!!!! I was like Naaaaa... No way! And he
swears up and down and so does his friend and the guy
that worked behind the counter.... Tiger Woods walked into
our local gas station and bought something to drink... I then
ask him.... Well... did you get his autograph???
And he says NOOOOO!!!  He and his friend were
in complete SHOCK that this man came into the
gas station and all they could say was OMGOSH....
That's Tiger Woods.... they said it about 15 times
 while telling me this story... They still cannot believe they
seen him and they were soooo nervous they
never asked for his autograph! LOL

the moral of this story is to make sure you

My Niece said she was having a Little Mermaid
Birthday party for her... So of course I had to whip out

I'm not gonna lie... This card was SOOOO HARD to put
together! OMGOSH! Trying to put Ariel's face together
was sooo hard with such teeny tiny pieces! But after 2 tries...
Yes I said TWO!!! I really was not happy with the first Ariel

except for the cuts I used to make Ariel and
the flowers... I used Core'dinations Card stock...

Sweet Teddy....

Hello and Happy Tuesdays Everyone!
I hope your week is going great so far!
Today I get to make a long journey to
the Doctors with my hubby! I mentioned
on another post that he had a stroke at such
a young age (36) and is now disabled... I was
just a Stay at home mom... until this happen then
I became a caregiver as well.... And since we
live pretty much in the middle of no where....
Our Dr's. office is about 1 hour and 45 minute
drive from here! He goes to a specialist every 6 months
and His Dr. is located in Colorado.... Luckily we live near
the 4 corners so CO, AZ, NM, are just a hop, skip and a jump
from us! LOL Still it is a long drive there and then the long drive back....
It's like one of my monthly grocery shopping trips... it's an all day event!
Sooo while I'm away I hope you enjoy this cute baby girl card I made! :o)

(Click on the Image to Enlarge)

I thought this came out soooo cute!
I LOVE Bears... Infact I collect them!
I have bears all over my house... Well not all
over.... but almost all over and I've been collecting them
for many, many years! Sooo when I seen this
cute bear on the cartridge I just had to make something! :o)

Everything is Stampin' Up except for
the Peachy Keen Face Stamp... I used the Large
Critter faces, I also used stickles for the bow,
Signo white gel pen for the Faux Stitching, and
Bazzill adhesive gems for a little extra bling!
Thanks for stopping by... I really do appreciate it!

Baby Boy Toy Card....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone!
I Hope you all had a terrific weekend!
I told you last week that I would post some
of the baby cards I was making last week...
Sooo to start off the new week I have a cute
little baby boy card! I think it came out adorable
so it is now my favorite card for today! LOL
I also have a story for ya.....
With all of my cards, I start them all out
in my Design Studio... And I place shapes
and cuts where I want them to be and I also
take notes while doing this process..... This
terrible thing happened with my designs this week...
I pre-designed all the cards I made last week and thought
I hit the save button like I always do... and the next morning
when I went to open my program up... there was nothing
there! OMGOSH!!! I freaked out for about 5 minutes....
I kept saying Where is it???? Where is it?????
As if the computer was gonna tell me! Anyway...
I was sooo upset that I had lost all that work I did
and then I remembered that I also took notes and
wrote down the sizes/measurements... Soooo
I'm happy to say that I was able to create almost all
of the cards that I had lost in that file! Thank Goodness!
I am still missing some of my notes... Not sure where I put them
but otherwise I was able to get all my baby cards done, and
my Male Birthday cards, and some Thank you cards....
I still kind of wish I knew what I did... maybe it was sooo
late and I clicked the wrong button... I know it is the likely
thing... but I keep thinking I swear I hit the save button...
Anyway... It's all good now! and here is one of the
cards I saved on paper! :o)

(Click on the Image to Enlarge)

Card Stock - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - Basic Grey
Cartridge - B is for Boy (Lite Cartridge from Wally World)
Toy is Cut @ 2 1/2"
The Word (Baby) is Cut @ 1" with the Shadow

I LOVE this paper from Basic Grey... I know it's an
older collection... but it's one of my fav's for
Baby/Children's cards! :o) It's a clean, simple look without
to many layers.... Well that's it for today... I'll be back tomorrow
with a baby girl card for ya! :o)
Thanks for stopping by.... I appreciate it!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!
