Happy Birthday MOM!

Hello and Happy Tuesday everyone! Did you guys have a nice weekend?
Mine started off ok.... then it hit me.... Yup... I got sick! UGH! Woke up
to 103.8 fever..... and aches and pains all over.... Now.... normally I don't get sick,
for real.... it rarely happens... but when it does.... man I'm out for the count!
I'm grateful it was a long weekend. but I can't seem to shake the 100 degree temp.
I've been taking all kinds of things to try and help it along.....
Any who.... I'll be fine in a day or two (I hope anyway) :o)
Today is my Moms Birthday!!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM!
I have a reunion planned to celebrate her big milestone...
Most of my brothers and sister are coming together for the
first time in about 10 years to celebrate her special day!
It'll be in June.... I have it planned at a park along with
Breakfast & Lunch.... We'll take her out to dinner that night too....
Looking forward to having us all together for a change....
Here is the card that I created for her special
milestone birthday!
She reads my blog.... so I made sure she got the card first
before I posted this! :o) Yes its a box card....
You gotta just LOVE those bad boys! :O)
Card stock, Ink - SU
Digital Paper - Carta Bella
Red Just Twine - American Crafts
Stamp - My Craft Spot
Anyway.... I better go get some more
meds... I really need to work tomorrow! :o)

Guest Designer at My Sheri Crafts!

Hello and Happy Saturday Everyone! Today is my Guest Designer
spot over at My Sheri Crafts! It's a pleasure and honor to be
chosen as a guest Designer... So thanks Sheri! :o)
She is challenging everyone to make anything Masculine!
Now most of you who know me & my blog... Know, that's one of my
favorite things to create! I LOVE print & Cut, Scene cards, &
creating Masculine cards! I have lots of male figures in my life
so I've just learned that it all begins with the paper you choose!
We all know men don't care how fancy the card or project is...
they like "cool" and "simple"... It's just their way!
So here is what I came up with for the
Anything Masculine Challenge!!!!

With Father's Day just around the corner... I thought
this would be appropriate to make! Father's day
is not just about your Father.... it's about your brothers,
and Grandfathers.... They are ALL Dads...right?
So I created this for my boys to sign and send off to
their Grandfather... For which... without him.... they wouldn't
really be here! :o)
Card stock, Ink - SU
Digital Designer Paper & Embellishments Nit Wit Collections (Gentlemen Folks)
Sentiment - Computer Generated
Buttons - Stamps of Life (Mini Buttons dies)
Jute Twine - Papertrey Ink

Of course I did the inside as well....
The inside was completed from:
They have wonderful digital papers & kits....
Perfect to use with your Silhouette! :o)
Well.... now that you've seen what I've created....
Please head on over to My Sheri Crafts and
check out the AMAZING creations from the Design Team
and you can join in on this FUN & Creative Challenge!
I look forward to stopping by and seeing what you've created!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog... I hope
you have an AWESOME Weekend!!!!

My First Shaker Card!!!!

Hello and Happy Thursday Everyone! OMGOSH.... It's been a week
since my last post. So sorry about that... but work has me busy like a bee!
I'm too tired when I get home from work to even think about crafting...
I'll have a 3 day weekend this week due to Memorial day, so maybe if
I have time I can craft away.... I know cleaning my house will be first....
darn house! LOL But hopefully I can fit in some craft time.... It's official....
Summer has started around here so that means I'll be working a lot... Not a fan
of that but it pays the bills! Right! :O) I still have several cards that I made
that I haven't shared with you, so I thought now is as good a time as any! :o)
I know Mother's Day has past.... but I wanted to share this
card I made for my Mom! The card design is from the
Silhouette store.... and as I was looking at it...
I thought??? HUMMMMM???? I wonder if I can
turn this into a Shaker card? Mind You --- I've
NEVER made one before! I should have watched a video
first --- But I didn't... I thought NAAAA --- I'll just wing it!
 So this is the final product... I do need to work on my shaker
card skills... but I really like how this turned out....
The designer paper is Digital of course.... :o)
Sentiment is computer generated...
And the best part is --- My Mom Really liked it! HA! :o)
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back this weekend
since I'm a guest designer on My Sheri Crafts! YAY!
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!!

Teacher Gift....

Hello and Happy Wednesday everyone! I'm so tired right now....
We have 12 families moving out of the area... Which on the one
hand is AWESOME for me.... cuz I get the items they don't want
to take with them when they move.... 
On the other hand....
there's soooo much stuff that I'm exhausted!
  I received several drop offs from these families already....
that I had to close my box (aka Donation box)
I'm working as fast as I can to get this stuff
cleaned and put out for my customers but you know
as soon as I open the box again.... I'm back to square one...
It's just crazy busy... So I may not have time to come visit
as often as I would like due to this "Rush" in donations...
But I will do my best to pop in when I can...
The fact that I'm typing this out with out falling asleep is amazing!
But I wanted to say "HI" to you guys... :o)
Hunter's Last day of school is Friday... It's suppose to
be next Friday but they built a new school here for the
Elementary kids and they wanted to start the tear down of
the old school ASAP.... So we can take them out of
school a week earlier if we like.... And with all the work
I got going on right now.... I could use his help! HA!!
Any who.... This is going to be the gift he gives to his Teacher.
I always give the Teacher something during the year and at the
end of the year to let them know that I appreciate them!
So I saw this box by Lori Whitlock in the Silhouette Store
and HAD to make it! HA!  Designer Paper is MME

I added 10 handmade cards to the box for her to use throughout
the year... (I hope she likes it) The Ribbon is Stampin' Up
2 of the flowers are My Craft Spot Rose Flower Dies
the other 2 flowers are from the Silhouette Store...
I added Gems to all the flowers and attached a
magnet to it for easy closing.... Normally I would
make a couple more things.... but with my work schedule
it ain't gonna happen! But I still wanted to give her
something made from me and this is it! :o)
Well.... I'm really exhausted now.... typing all this
stuff! hahaha Thanks so much for stopping
by and always being so supportive of me
and my work/crafting! You guys are the BEST!
Hope to see you very soon! Have an
