New Addition

Hey Everyone:
This post is a little late, but better late then never lol.

Well Thanksgiving has passed.  But this thanksgiving we were given an additional member to our family that we need to be thankful for. My husband and I are very lucky, we have four children between us, and now four grandchildren.
So for thanksgiving we went to Tennessee to meet the newest member.  Our precious new angel named Alexander.

We also got a chance to visit with Alexander's older brother, who is all of 5 years old. (he is know to me as my little man).  Anthony  was very excited about his little brother.  He kept saying my brother is soooo cute.  lol  .

And it was great spending time with the two of them.

While we were in Tennessee we also got a chance to see our oldest granddaughter who lives about three hours away.  Our Andrea is now almost 15 years old, and it was such a joy to see and spend time with her.

We also have another granddaughter who lives here with us. Not literally with us, just not 800 miles away lol.  And we will get to spend Christmas with my beautiful blue eyed Tori.

So besides our four kids, we have our four grandkids and our extended family to be thankful for.
God bless us all and all of you.  Thanks for stopping by.

New Digi Stamp

Hello All,

I've become a member of a new club.  This club is called Crafters Digital Art Center.  And as such we have a challenge going on right now.  We are given some digi stamps and we are to create something with them. As I am card member the digital stamp I am using first is this Fuchia teapot - sandisamples image. I used my make the cut program to cut the stamp and used colored pencils to color the flowers on the teapot. My card is an A2 card using beige cardstock for both the base of the card and the teapot.  My first layer is brown glitter card stock with gold ribbon tied into a bow..
Hope you like.

Good Morning and A Happy Sunday to All

Hey Everyone,

Found something new to play with lol...Found these three 3D letters to make with paper.  Not quite that easy to put together but can be alot of fun.  Still learning this but for the mean time I made the first initial of two of my grandchildren.  There is a V for my beautiful granddaughter Victoria, and an A for my handsome lil man Anthony. I can see this will be just the beginning of my playtime with these 3D letters. Hope you like.

Good Morning All..

Hello Everyone,

Today is my nieces wedding day.  So I want to take this opportunity wish her all the happiness and love anyone can have.  She is marrying her soul mate Mark.  So of course I made her wedding card actually I made two and would like to share them with you.  I hope you guys like. The first card is a little difficult to see the details but the words Forever and Love are glittered up and so are their names which are  centered in side each of the hearts. The ribbon across the top  is embossed with the words best wishes running across. The second card the bride and groom were cut from a cricket cartridge, her dress has glitter glue on the bottom and on the bouquet and the words I do.  Enjoy!

Hello All,

Wow havent been on for awhile.  Well last night I was making a graduation card. The card it self I think came out cute.  My problem was the lettering.  I couldnt seem to get them on straight.  But I decided I would post it anyway.  I normally use bigger letters, this was a fine script font. But I;m sure I will get the hang of it. So anyway here it is.

Craft Robo
US cutter MH/Laser point series
Any cutter using an HPGL printing support feature
You can try make the cut before you purchase just click on the button on my sidebar.
Now to what I've made to you show well make the cut works.  Now im not a very good photographer so please forgive the photography.  My first is a card I made is a regular A2 size and the the little bear is from lettering delights and I used the print and cut option with make the cut.

Next I have made a spring layout. Featured here is my beautiful Granddaughter.
All of the elements on this layout were sized, colored and cut with make the cut and my cougar.
Well thanks for stopping by just a few more days and some great things still in store for everyone.

A request

I was asked to make a special birthday card for a 12 year old, and was told he liked video games.
So this is what I came up with. I hope he likes it.

Hope you do to.

Good Morning

I'm sorry I havent posted lately, been busy with life lol.  But this week I made three cards.. One I am saving for my turn for the  Month of May,  Make the Cut bloghop.  Sorry, you will have to check back for that one.

These two were done for my supervisor and assistant supervisor. My supervisor (Rosa) went out on sick leave, so hence this card is a quick get well card.  The second is the assistant supervisor (John) and its his birthday. He is a guitar player and goof ball, hence the card I made for him.  Both cards were made with my Make the cut program and my fantastic kitty (Black cat cougar).  Hope you like.

LOL So no hints people. Of course any of these can be reproduced for anyone who would like to order.
Anyway here they are.

Hi All

Well its been a few days since I posted something, have been getting things ready for my anniversary with my husband.  And playing with the idea of making wedding cards.
My niece is getting  married this summer so I thought I would try and see what I could come up with.
First I will show you the card I made for my darling husband. Then the other two cards I was trying out. Your feed back would be greatly appreciated, specifically with the wedding cards. Am I on the right direction here or what. Thanks guys

I've been making personal cards lately.  But I did manage to add a few more to the Interchangeables. I  will display only one or two  or three today the others are in the appropriate folders.
This first one is very cute and simple and has no sentiment on it. It could be an "It's  Boy", it can be male birthday card or something you might like better.
The second is has been made with two sentiments but I'm sure it could be made into something else. Aslo there is one that I couldnt decide The fourth one has no sentiment either. Hope you like.

Working on something new.

I just wanted to let you know that I do listen.  I listen to all the emails that I have been recieving. And I am working on one of the requests that was made.
I am working on creating a new line of cards.  These new cards will still be hand made, but the all of the insides of these cards will be blank. 
I hear you , I hear you.  You're asking why?  Well, because all of  these cards will be interchangeable.
What does that mean?  It means that I will be creating cards that the sentiments can be exchanged between them. In other words two or three cards will be made exactly the same. And you will be given two or three different occasions for the cards. I will show you an example at the end here. 
And yes you guessed it.  The name of the new line of cards is "Interchangeables".  Here is an example:
Your feedback would be greatly appreciated. In the coming days I will pick a different design and exhibit them.  So come back, yes come back often.
