Card Creating Sunday

Hello I hope you all started out your weekend off great. I know I have not been doing many projects lately. I have been going through some things well I call them trials that god gives me. I just found out that my best friend in the whole wide world ( MY MOM) is going to a kidney specialist and she only has one kidney and  she is a 2 on the kidney failure score board. 10 is the kidney failure. I'm worried but then I try to think positive and God has a plan for all of us. I just am praying that God keeps her around.

I am one of the Design Members featured over at My Cricut Craft Room. Today's theme over there is Card Creating Day.

I made this Birthday for someone's Birthday that is coming up. I made an envelope and a pretty card to match. I made a rosette and added a cupcake to it . The cupcake's are made from The sweet Shop Cartridge.
Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog. Please leave me some love. Have a great crafting day and have a safe Halloween!

Well hello friends!! Hope you all had a great weekend and boy there was  a lot going on this weekend. Blog hops..K Andrews had an awesome Blog hop this weekend. Her Design Team rocked it. If you have yet visited her blog you should stop over at My Cricut Craft Room to see the line up.

I had my first ever Scentsy Party;Saturday Night and boy that was so much fun. If you are new to my blog Erica is my sister-in-law. So if you see me refer to Erica that is who I am talking about. She came and brought those wonderful and amazing treats that she made for the Blog hop for K Andrews stamps, they were a hit. If you have yet seen those stop over at her blog.

I wanted to share what My daughter (Haley) and I made for her school project. She had to decorate a pumpkin and it had to be a character from a book or movie. So she wanted to do 101 Dalmatian. So this is what we came up with.

Ha isn't it cute. I literally spent an hour and a 1/2 at pat catan's and was walking down the isles to come up with an easy way for her to do this by herself so she could actually say she did this and be proud of it.
I did help glue the ears and eyelashes.
Boy she is so excited to show her teacher!

Now onto my card that I made for Imagine-ation Monday. This is when you use a Imagine cartridge or paper and basically make anything creative.
Halloween is almost here, so I wanted to make Haley's teacher a pretty card. Here it is...

I love these accordion cards they are so much fun to do.
I used Imagine more Cartridge for the orange and striped paper. This Cartridge is so neat and the paper is amazing on it.

Well thanks for stopping by here and reading my blog. I hope you all have a great start of the week...STOP BY TUESDAY for Card Creating Tuesday! Don't forget to  see what the other  Design Team Members  came up with. I promise you won't be disappointed. Have a great Crafting Day!

Welcome friends I hope you all are having an awesome week. I can't wait for Saturday I am having a scentsy party. This is my first party at my new place. I just want people to show up just to have fun, they don't have to buy anything, but what women doesn't like candles. I will have to share to you all how it goes. I have an update on my Ethan. I received great news Tuesday night that my son's anti-rejection is back to normal. Thank the good lord and every one's prayers. I was so afraid that I would have to go to Cincinnati and watch him in one of those cage cribs. I hate seeing him like that plus he gets no sleep. So Good news No Cincinnati. So once again thank you all for the wonderful prayers.

So today's theme over at My Cricut Craft Room is Theme Day Thursday. The Theme is WINTER! So here is what I came up with...It's a masculine card or I tried to make one.

Cut an 8 1/4 x 4 1/4- inch piece of plain vanilla card stock. Score the card vertically at 2 2/4 inches from left edge.
Form a 2 3/4x 4 1/2 inch top folded card I used Polka dot paper.
Take a tag and cut the little circle at the end of the tag.
Take flower shoppe and make two different flowers. These were cut at 3inches. Take blue ribbon and add it to your card.
Use Pink By Design stamp Baby It's cold outside.
The Inside.. I use Trim the Tree to make the inside note part.

Thank Goodness It's Friday!
I don't know about you all but this week has been so productive for me. Taking Ethan to the doctors almost everyday but Monday. His labs are showing that the anti-rejection medicine is hurting his kidneys so the doctors are debating on putting him on another medication. Ugh... So if you all can pray for my little man I would appreciate it. I don't know if you all know but Madison is doing  a wonderful project for the Month of October. It's called I feel the love project. Please check it out over at her blog!! Its .

So today I am featured as a guest designer for My Cricut Craft Room. Today's Theme is FESTIVE FRIDAY. I chose to make a cute Halloween card. Here it is......

Light purple single fold card (6in) square
green,purple and orange designer paper or plain paper (NOTE): I used Target Dollar section Scrapbook Halloween Paper

Take the two panels and mount it on the purple designer paper. Take the Pink By Design Cute Halloween and stamp on the upper right corner the little spider and spider web. Take the white Gel pen and out line the embossed spider and spider web. Add little white spots to the spider to add a little extra detail.

So Busy..

So guess what Friends Haley comes home tonight!! Yippee, I know I haven't spent hardly any time on crafts... I have been feeling kinda down lately. I don't know what it is. I watched like 5 episodes of Drop Dead Diva and I laughed, Cried and basically went through all the emotions you can imagine ( giggle). I don't ever hardly watch Television. All of my spare time usually  is spent crafting. I will get back into it, I just guess I was kinda in a funk.
So Haley is coming home tonight after being with her dad in San Diego. Her father just got married last sat, so she flew on weds to be in it. Plus she has no clue but he will break  the bad news to her and tell her he has to go to Iraq.  I know I know why do I care?? Well me and my Ex are actually better as friends. Yes I know what your thinking but hey think about it. For Haley's  sake at least we can talk and respect one another instead of bashing each other. After all he will always be Haley's Father.
I have been so busy making cupcake wrapper and labels ( for my hubbys ). I can't wait to show you the finished product. Well I just wanted to update all my NEW friends and Thank you who stops by and comment on my projects that I have made. I promise in the next couple of days there will be more crafts that I will be making. I hope you all have a Great Crafting Sunday!
