Detailed Birthdays

Hello!  I have been busy again, but nope not on Christmas cards this year!  This year we did something a little special with our Christmas cards, and did some family portrait cards.  Does that mean that I will not do any Christmas cards at all.  I am not sure, we shall see.  I guess you will have to watch and see what happens!  :-) 
Anyways, I made two different cards for my parents, whose birthdays are about a week apart from each other. I went for the detailed images that are free right now on Cricut Design Space, and I have always wanted to do a hot air balloon and a bike image too. They are not perfect, but I am pretty happy with how they turned out.  I love the soft muted colors I chose.  Plus if you did not notice the bike card is a shaker card too!  Anyways, they were a little tricky to do up because of all of the detailed cuts, but very cute too.

Thanks for stopping in today and 
I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Retro Birthday!

Hello again!  I have been busy in my craft room making my Thanksgiving crafts but I did have time to squeeze in to make a fun birthday card for my sister!  I love the Cricut Suburbia Cartridge, and have never really used it, until now!  I love the retro look of this fun card.  Classy, and just plain fun! Well, I got to get back to work on my craft and another birthday card.  See you all soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by! 
I hope you have a fabulous day!

Baby Rattle Shaker Card

Hello! I am back at it again, making cards!  I am trying to decide weather or not to make a bunch of Christmas cards again or not.  I have a ton of things going on in my life right now, like kids and sports, and trying to run a wonderful business, and life in general.  Anyways, it has been a long time since I have had the joy of making a sweet baby card. So I went all out and made a fun interactive card. I really love shaker cards so very much!   They are so much fun to make, and they are fun to play with too.  This one was made for a young couple, who about a year ago, was pregnant with twins, and God chose to keep them safe in His arms in heaven.  So again He has blessed them with the gift of life with a sweet baby girl, who is about to make her entrance into the world.  So I am praying that all goes well for momma and baby.  I can't wait to meet her!  Her grandma is my sweet neighbor, and I know she is so excited.  Anyways, here is the cute little baby rattle shaker card I made for them to go along with their baby gift!

Thanks for stopping by again! 
I hope you have a fantastic day!

50th Wedding Anniversary

Hello!  I am sorry, I have gone missing for quite some time.  Life for me this year has been extremely busy, with a 16th birthday party, a graduation, and open house, and then a surprise 50th anniversary year has consisted of many parties!  Anyways, the Surprise 50th Wedding Anniversary party was for my parents.  They are such special people in my life, and so many others. They are such a Godly example of what love is about.  Their marriage is not perfect, but it has been filled with so many blessing and wonderful memories and joy.  Anyways, my 2 sisters and I, along with our families, were able to pull off a Huge surprise for our parents, we surprised them with a Surprise party and then a few weeks later sent them off on a trip to Oregon, to visit some friends, that they thought that they would never get to go see.  It was a lot of work, but Oh so much fun and rewarding to do this for them.  They greatly deserved it, and needed it too.  They were stunned and totally surprised by it all.  Even down to being on their trip, they still were in disbelief that this all took place.  What a joy!  :-)  I am so glad we got to honor our parents in this way.  We even hired a professional photographer too!  Anyways, this card is a pop-up box card, that I made and was able to slip into their suitcase right before they left on their trip.  They were totally surprised!  This year has been full of surprises for them!  :-)  I love how this card turned out, simple yet elegant, with the touch of gold for it being their 50th, and the splash of blue from their wedding colors.   I am so eager for them to share their pictures and stories about their trip!

The shoes were for the "Shoe Game" where they both had one of each shoe, and answered questions, of who is most likely to... then they would raise the shoe that it pertained to.  That caused a lot of smiles and laughter from all 100+ guests!  What great time!
They are still very much in love!
 Anyways, thank you all for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day!

Nerf Birthday

Okay, this is the last post for the day!  This was for my wonderful son!  He recently turned 16 years old!  Where does the time go?  Really?  I cannot believe that my boy is now 16!  I grew up with only sisters, so he is the only boy, (besides my dad and my hubby), in my life.  So I love watching him grow up and change.  I love seeing the changes that he is going thru, like that facial hair!  That one cracks me up!  I was more the "tomboy" in my family of all girls, so him and I really do connect in so many ways.  He has a large obsession with Lego's and Nerf!  So we had a blast for his 16th party and had a large Nerf War with his basketball team, friends and family.  He has always wanted to have a big party with a Nerf was, so we fulfilled that dream!  Almost all of his basketball team came.  So we had a nice crowd, for some b-ball and Nerf wars!  Woohoo!  It was so much fun!  He will have great memories of that for many years to come.  Anyways, I made this card for him, complete with the Nerf "swoosh" logo, and Nerf darts!  Do you see them?  I think it turned out pretty good! 

Thanks for checking out all these posts, and I hope you have a day filled lots of joy and blessings!

Umbrella Shower

So this cute little card was made for my niece who we had to have a bridal shower for, before she and her hubby leave us soon.  She is already married due to his military deployment, so we decided to have a shower before he comes back and they officially start their lives together.  We would not want to send them off with nothing to start their home with.  Anyways, here is the card I made for her!  It really is a simple yet pretty card that could easily be used for a baby shower, depending on the gender of the baby you could just simply change the colors of the paper and such!

Isn't it pretty! 
Well, thank you for taking a look around and I hope you have a fantastic day!

Basket Ball Coach!

This card was made for my son's Basketball coach.  He has been a great teacher and very patient with all of the team.  This was his last year coaching the boys.  He is passing the torch onto another dad to take over the team!  We are sad to see him go, but also looking forward to what the future may hold for the team and my son.  Either way, I wanted to make his card extra special/fancy!  So I did a Shaker/pop-up card!  LOL  Take a look!

I think this card turned out really good!
Anyways, thanks again for stopping in and seeing what I have been creating!

13 Birthday Candles Bendy Card

GSo I made this cute bendy card for my sweet, smiley girl who just turned 13!  Where does the time go?  My baby is now a teenager!  Wow!  She is growing up and is so pretty and is always smiling and is always the first one to laugh!  She bring such joy and laughter to our family!  I love this girl! 
This was my second but my first attempt at making a bendy card completely on my Cricut Explore!  What a wonderful machine and program!  Anyways, here is what I came up with for her!

Thanks for coming by! I hope you have a wonderful day! 

Garden Bendy Card

Okay, this one was a bit of a challenge for me, yet so fun to make.  This was my first attempt at making a bendy card.  I made this one for my sweet SIL, who is so kind and thoughtful.  She introduced me and my family to an amazing business that has life changing, all natural products.  What an amazing thing!  I have joined her and her family in a journey to better health.  In the past year, my health and asthma has improved and I have finally been able to have a GREAT report form my "Lung" Dr.  Who was impressed with my health improvement.  These amazing health products/supplements have saved my nieces life, too.  The products are all Natural and are changing lives drastically for the better and it is diabetic safe. Actually, it was originally made for people with diabetes and they found so many happy side effects, caused from these amazing products.  Side effects like, weight loss, joint pain improvement/gone, IBS gone, planters fasciitis gone, fibromyalgia gone...the list of testimonies just goes on. Anyways, you are probably wondering what this company's name is and what it is all about!  It is a relatively new company and it is exploding in its growth so fast!  This amazing company is called, Plexus!  I love what their products are and that they are ALL NATURAL!  They are GMO free and Gluten free!  It is so awesome to be a part of this company and this opportunity of a lifetime!  If you ever want to know more about this company and its products please take a look around on my website or message me, and I will be glad to answer any questions you may have!  So here is My Plexus Website, go check it out and see what it is all about!  I love my yummy Plexus Pink Drink! 

Either way, I am so very thankful for my SIL, for introducing me to Plexus and how it is changing my life and hers and our families lives and so many others, all for the better!  So either way, she needed a special birthday card!  So I took on the challenge and made another bendy card!

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a great day!


January Birthdays!

Okay, so these two were made for some very special people in my families life.  One was for our Pastor's wife and the other was for our Assistant Pastor.  They share the same birthday month as I do!  They are both such Godly people and people to look up to.  So here is their cards!  Oh, and I LOVE the Ornamental Ironwork 2 Cricut Cartridge! 

Thanks for stopping and by and I hope your day is filled with many blessings!
