Throwback Thursday 01/26/12

Hi Everyone, it's time for another Throwback Thursday from My Creative time with Emma. This time we were suppose to do something for Valentines day. I decided to use my Hello Kitty Greetings Cartridge again. I don't get to use it very often with having a boy so I am going to use it every chance I get. I am LOVING it!! She is just so cute. I also used the Tags, Bags, boxes and more cartridge to cut out the door hanger with my Gypsy. I love doing door hangers! I hope you are all having a great day and don't forget to check out Emma's blog for lots of great ideas.

Sympathy Cards

Hi Everyone, I don't do sympathy cards very often but this week I had to do two of them. We had a friend of the family loose their father and a friend of mine and my son's lost their husband/dad. We want both families to know that our thoughts are with them.

Christmas Card 2011

Hi Everyone! We are in the middle of a snow storm right now so it is a good day to stay inside and get some work done and upload a few pictures. This is the Christmas Card that I made for Christmas this past year. It took a long time so I was really glad when I was done. I sounded so simple and fast in my head, but then I kept wanting to add more details. I ended up handing a lot of them out by hand since it cost so much to ship. Here I make my own cards to save money, but it ends up costing me more :). Everyone seemed to love them so it was all worth it. Next year I told everyone I am going to do something simple. We will see if I can do that or not :). It's hard to see but the cover I letter pressed which in person looks really nice. I need to learn how to take better pictures. I hope you all enjoy and post again soon!

Throwback Thursday Challenge 01/05/12

Hi Everyone! It has been a very long time since I have been on my blog. Things have finally slowed down here so I am spending more time in my scraproom and doing LOTS of catch up. What a busy year it was. We did a lot of landscaping during the summer and fall, then football started and took up lots of time and then I started in on my Christmas cards and let me tell you I have never been so happy to get something done. I hope to post some pictures of them sometime yet this week. So onto this project. This was for another Throwback Thursday challenge over at My Creative time with Emma. (here is her site if you would like to go and visit She has a ton of cute ideas) For this project we were suppose to do something with our Sports Mania Cartridge or something sporty. I do have that cartridge but nothing creative was coming into my head when I was looking at it, so I decided to make some gift card holders for my two nieces who won my son's fantasy football this year (go girls). I found this little cheerleader on the Hello Kitty Greetings cartridge and I think she is so cute! I hope you enjoy and thanks for stopping by.

Throwback Thursday Challenge 04/01/11

Happy April Fools day! We are suppose to get a rain and snow mix today so that is a pretty bad April fools day prank...really snow??? Spring has to be coming, it just has to. For todays post I did a card for Emma's at My Creative Time with Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge. For this challenge we are NOT to use our Cricut Machine which was hard for me but I did it. I haven't done a card without it in quite a while. I just made a quick Easter card. I think it turned out pretty cute, so maybe I will try more cards without my Cricut...gasp! I hope you enjoy and have a great day!

Aren't we cute

Good Afternoon! What a beautiful day it is here in WI. Not really warm, but the sun is shinning and there is no wind, so it feels great! I got the pups out for a walk today so hopefully they will sleep well tonight. For todays post I did one of my pups. These were just after they got their hair cut. We go to Petsmart and I think they do a great job and they always add a cute bow on when they are done. Now that I think about it I don't think I even used my Cricut on this one. That is huge for me :). Well I hope you are all having a great day and will post more soon.

Forever Young

Hi Everyone, I have been working on a few things, so I finally have something to put on my blog. Yea! For todays post I did a couple things using the Forever Young Cartridge. First I made a journal for myself to hopefully help me get motivated into eating better and log what I am eating and exercise that I do. If not it is just pretty to look at :). The next project I made was a birthday card for my niece that is turning 16 this weekend. That number is making me feel old! I can remember when she was born and the only grandchild. Now their are 8. Time goes by so fast. Anyways, I hope you enjoy them and are having a great day!
