Hi Everyone,

Now, I can't wait to get scrappin' & stampin' & enjoy the fruits of our labor! Have a restful rest of your weekend & make some time for crafting ~

Episode 205 ~ Happy Birthday Cards, "Moo ~ "

Happy Saturday Everyone,
Well... we survived the Birthday Sleep-Over Party here at our house last night for our youngest son! Holy Cats!!! Who knew 9 little boys could stay up ALL night long & not sleep a wink? A good time was had by all, but truthfully... I am glad it's over!
I finished up today making the rest of the Birthday cards & wanted to share them with you. I mass produced the Crazy for Cupcakes card so I have plenty of hand for any last Birthdays that might catch me by surprise. I have a box that I keep a stash of finished cards in that can be mailed out in a blink, love to be prepared.
Have a groovy weekend & I hope you can squeeze in some time for crafting ~

Epsiode 200 ~ Birthday cards for Scrubby!!!

Hi there crafty friends!
Today I wanted to share with you the Birthday cards I made for my scrubby in honor of his special day! Some are glittery & some are not... But, all in all, I had a blast making these for him. On another note, I also began the task of re-organizing & moving things around in my craftroom. It looks like a tornado blew through it, but hopefully I will have it all back together soon. I'll share the end results with all of you... wish me luck!

Episode 199 ~ "Use It or Lose It" Boys Birthday card

Happy Saturday Crafty Friends!
I hope you are having a happy day & squeezing in some craft time for yourselves... I am crazy busy making birthday cards like the one on this post for today. Our son is heading to a sleep over Birthday party tonight, I am sure he'll be in a great mood in the morning when we pick hime up for church, ugh!
This card is for my "Use It or Lose It " Series ~ I am determined to use the products I have on hand & not purchase anything else for awhile. Adhesive doesn't count though & for the first time ever, I went into Michael's yesterday & only came out with tape refills!!! That's it! Believe it or not, all the "stuff" was making me kinda dizzy.
I really need to weed through my craftroom & re-organize my goodies... Have a groovy weekend!

Episode 198 ~ Thankyou Luncheon for my "Crazies"...

Hi Crafty Friends,
It's Friday, woo-hoo! Today was my Thankyou luncheon for my "crazies" in honor of them helping me out so much while I was in the hospital in Maryland. These wonderful women ( one was not able to make it) brought dinner every night for my kids, drove them to Dr., appts., & drove them home from basketball. One even spent the night on my couch so my husband could stay with me & not drive home in the snowstorm. Now that's what I call great friends! I am truely, so blessed & I wanted to thank them for being there for me. I love them all ~
The picture frames I made for them were a huge hit & I hope they use them over & over for Valentines Day each year. It was a really wonderful day...
I made the darling napkin rings & also the placecards... I had such a good time making my table come to life! I love to tablescape for any occassion. The florist made the beautiful centerpiece on a gorgeous crystal bowl which we recieved as a wedding gift & the individual mini bouqets were made on those inexspensive glass candle holders. All - all, everything was perfect ~
Have a wonderful weekend my friends,
Big Huggs,

Episode 197 ~ Boy's B-Day Invites Using Cricut Sports Mania & TBB&M

Hi Everyone,
I hope if you are in a part of the counrty that is getting hit hard with all this snow, that you are safe & warm at home with your family & friends. We are due for another storm tonight, bringing with it another 6-8 inches in time for the morning commute, ugh!
Today's post is the Birthday Party Invites I made for our son who will be having a party in acouple weeks. He is a football kind of guy at heart, but the basketball season is in full swing, so that is the theme I am going to go with.
I used the Cricut cartridges; Sports Mania and also Tags, Bags, Boxes and More. Love both of these & don't use them as much I should...
Hopefully this will give you guys some inspiration for creating something for the "little boys" in our lives.
Thanks for visiting with me today and stay warm my friends ~
