I wanted to write to all my fellow bloggers, I am currently MIA because of my son Ethan Andrew Pinter is currently in the PICCU at Cincinnati's Children' Hospital. He is put on a ventalater so he can breathe and let his body heal.. and rest. He has a CMV virus and EBV Virus and he is post transplant for almost 10 1/2 months now... so there are a lot of hiccups after transplant. This disease has a lot of complications with it. These virus's are treatable thank the good lord. Just want to write to tell you all that when I do get home with Ethan I will start crafting again.. All i ask are prayers! Thanks for visitinf my blog!!! Updates are posted daily on my Face Book page over at Melissa Pinter!
Happy New Year and God Bless

New Design Team

Hello Crafty Friends, I know it may seems like forever since my last post. I  told you in the previous post that I have joined two New Design Teams, well it is actually three now.
The first Design Team
I am on is  Srappin Chics Challenge Blog. This group does three projects a month well as of right now. She will be changing things up after the New Year. (Jen Roseman)She gives us a theme and then we have to make three different projects but using the same theme. Be sure to check out the Scrappin Chics Blog and if you take on the challenge, use the links to post it so you can win the prize that my Design Team leader Jenn Roseman is giving away. 
So the THEME for this month is HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS! So I decided to make Home Decor for this month. I worked really hard to make these. I did have some help from my friend Tina (also known as CRAFTY AND GREEN) and my husband Chris. They gave me some pointers.. like my bow was to small and my flowers were to big. So I changed it up and these wreaths turned out awesome.  So here is the finish project!

I made these FIVE wreaths using Flower Shoppe Cartridge on the  Cricut.

The flowers were cut at 1.7 Inches and I used little red Rhine stones for the middle part of the wreath.  I went in the dollar section at Micheal's and found little pine cones and chipboard mistletoe. These wreaths are actually garland and I just coiled it up and made wreaths.

Well I hope you all like these and please take the time to stop over at my New Design Team and check out what the other fabulous Designers made for this Team. The next project will be posted in a couple of weeks. Also after the Holidays I will announce the other fabulous teams that I am on. Also in the up coming months I will be participating in Blog Hops and swaps.. So stay tune... a lot of exciting creations and GIVEAWAYS..
Hope you all have a Great Crafting Day!
Please leave some love and stop over at Scrappin Chics Challenge Blog...

My Cricut Craft Room 100 Blog Hop

Welcome and Good Morning to another wonderful day for a hop. You should have came from My Cricut Craft Room .

So I wanted to make something for Christmas to share to you so you can make one before Christmas is over plus you can use this year after year and maybe one day pass it off to your children.

Here it is.....

I made this Advent Calender using four Cartridges..they were Gingerbread,Snow Angel, Just Because Cards, and Alphalicious.

The envelopes were cut at 3 inches. The two Snowmen were cut at 4 inches and the Big Snowman was cut at 7.8 inches and the Christmas Tree was cut 7.9 inch.

I wanted to use Velcro to close the envelopes but they kept opening so I was like forget it so I left it open.
I am going to place little scriptures from the Bible in them and what a better way to teach your children the words of the Bible. The last one I will place a piece of paper to a clue to a present.

Here is another Advent calender that I have made. I used Trim The Tree, and Just Because Cards, and Alphalicious for the wording same with the above Calender.

The ornament was cut at 8 inches and the envelopes were also cut at 3 inches and I added some pretty embellishments and decorated it.

Here is another close up of the side view.

I have made two more but you will have to see how I finished them.  So don't forget to stop by to see the other two Beautiful Advent Calanders tomorrow for day 2 of this hop and yes I used two more cartridge to make these Calendars.

Here are sneek Peeks of them...

Well thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a fantastic Crafting day!

Next Hop to the Fantabulous Jen L.

Here is the line up just in case you get lost on your way!
Remember please leave some love on each and Everyone's Post because there might be blog candy just for you!  Have a great crafting day!
