Butterfly Wishes.....

Hello and Happy Monday Everyone! I hope everyone had a
Fabulous Weekend! Mine was alright... Nothing to exciting going
on except for my Machine!!! I was Cutting and Printing and cutting and
Drawing with my Silhouette pens when all of a sudden..... Some of my
Sketch pens would not stay in the blade holder.... I was like WHAT???
So I go to put my blade back into it and cut, then it starts
popping out of the holder???
I'm like what the heck is going on?? I check to make sure I have it
locked and it is... but as it's cutting it unlocks and the blade keeps
popping out.... So... I guess you ALL know what that means? Right???
I'm gonna have to call Silhouette today.... and most likely.... I'm gonna
have to send it in to be fixed!!!! UUUUGHGHGH.... I'm not gonna
be happy with that.... but I know it needs to be fixed....
Do you know how much I use that machine???? A LOT!!!
And with it gone.... I'll have an empty space on my desk and
noooo machine... WAHHH!!!! Of course I still have my Cricut
machines... but really??? Who wants me to use those???
NOT ME!!! LOL Anyway.... I'll let you know how everything
turns out.. In the mean time....
Here's another card I made for my MIL....:o)
I won the Jar Die set a while ago from My Craft Spot & Thought

for another Challenge over at

Ch# 9 Anything Goes
Begins: Wednesday, January 1

A blog dedicated to the Silhouette Cutting Machines.
You MUST use a Silhouette somehow in your project.

Sponsor this month is:
Butterfly Kisses Stamp Set by My Craft Spot
Well.... as you can tell it's time for another monthly Challenge
over at Silhouette Challenges! This month you get to make
ANYTHING!!! How cool is that! Everyone should join
in on this Challenge! I know a lot of you got new machines
for Christmas.... So why not crank them up and create
something to share with all of us! :o)
Here's what I made this time around:

With Valentine's Day a couple weeks away...
I thought I would go that route....
 Ink - Stampin' Up
Card Stock - Kaiser Craft, Bo Bunny Double Dot

I added Black Stickles Glitter to her cute
antenna's and pink Chalk for her cheeks....
White Gel Pen and googly eyes.....

Yellow Stickles Glitter for the Honey dripping
and Crystal Stickles for the word Honey!

I added Pink tulle to her wings just to add a
little somethin' somethin'!

 The Design is from My Scrap Chick
and was all cut out on my Silhouette!
I wanted to add some Valentine's Candy
to it for my "prop" to fancy it up a bit...
But I live in a small town and it was
hard to find any by the time this was due
for the challenge! So you get to see it plain!
Now that you've seen what I created... it's your turn!
Go make something fun and amazing so I can stop by
and check it out! Thanks so much for stopping by

Flying By....

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone! Boy what a week....
I'm already exhausted from this first week back to work...
I can't wait for Friday to arrive.... I swear it's like everyone
just decided to CLEAN during the holiday break.... cuz I've
gotten sooo much stuff donated it's ridiculous! I mean it's great
for the store... but when you're the only one doing the sorting and
separating and pricing it becomes a lot of work and sometimes a
bit overwhelming! ;o(
My back room is soooo full right now.... That
I'm just asking myself... Am I going to get this done? I'm guessing I will
but it's gonna take some time... and I'm gonna do it without trying
to kill myself hurrying in the process.... I think I've pulled a few things
that I shouldn't have... But I'll keep takin' something for the pain and
press on and hope I get some type of donation reprieve so I can
get this mess caught up first before the next big donation! :o)
Sorry bout' all the talk of my job.... but who else am I gonna talk too?
I know it's not what you came here for so let's show ya
what I've made to share! :o)
You're not gonna believe this... but I actually used
my CRICUT to create this card! Say What???
Yup... I've had the Creative Cards Cartridge since it
first came out and I've Never Ever Used It! I know
soooo sad... Right?
Well, when I was deciding on cards to make for my MIL
I thought I would pull out a couple
of my cartridges that I haven't used or haven't used in
a really long time.... So here ya go! :o)
Card stock, Ink, Gem, Stamped Sentiment - Stampin' Up
Designer Paper - MME
Card Design - Creative Cards Cartridge
Button - Papertrey Ink
Twine - The Twinery
I really do like how it came out.... It was simple to
put together once I decided on what paper to use! LOL
Thanks so much for stopping by and reading my crazy
week so far at work... I hope you all have an
