Potty Training Blues!
I am in the middle of potty training (ha, ha) my 2 year old, so we are stuck at home for the next few days. I decided to make a couple of cards using some pre-made boxes of cards. First, I made a baby boy card using a DCWV card. I found some old printed papers which were probably Creative Memories if you remember them. I used a cute Stampin' Up stamp set for the card & envelope. I just LOVE the precious little feet that I used to adorn the front of the envelope and I thought the ducky safety pin was perfect for the flap. I used my Stampin' Up punch to cut a scalloped square for my "It's A BOY!" stamp which I attached using a K & Co. brad. I added a little bit of sparkle to the corners using Baby Blue Stickles.

I am participating in my second Throwback Thursday Challenge for Emma at My Creative Time.  The challenge is to use the cart "Doodlecharms" to create a scrapbook page.  I was inspired by my two precious little boys sleeping. I always call them my snug bugs!  I used "Doodlecharms" for the bugs and heart.  "Makin' the Grade" was used for the wording.  The paper was CTMH as well as some old miscellaneous paper that I found this weekend while attempting to organize my crafting space.  Hope Emma & my snug bugs like it!

Father's Day Continued

I also wanted to share something else that I added to my husband's basket. He is an avid outdoorsman. He loves to go to Cabela's, Gander Mountain, and of course...Bass Pro Shops. The nearest Bass Pro Shop is a couple of hours away in Katy, TX. We are overdue for a day trip there. I got him a couple of gift cards to add to his basket, then I made a "ticket" for a day trip to Bass Pro Shops on my computer. I thought it was cute; I hope he likes it.

Happy Father's Day!

I decided to add a little home-made lovin' to my Father's Day gifts. I got inexpensive plastic baskets, added yummies, individual gifts, and personalized them for each Dad in our lives. They have everything from shirts to gift cards to radar detectors in them. I think that the Dads will like them! I used my Gypsy to incorporate a range of cartridges such as Jubilee, Gypsy wanderings, and Gypsy Font. I added dowel rods with the sayings "You Rock" and "You're the Best." Check out my album to see the other pics.

First Ever Challenge!

Well...here is an entry for my first contest ever! Emma at My Creative Time had a Throwback Thursday Challenge using the Cricut cart "Stretch Your Imagination" and the colors blue, red, and brown. I never even noticed this cute chick before. I like how the card turned out! I had my girlfriends at work in mind when I created it. Now...let's see who will get it!

I am starting this blog as a means to catalogue my creations. I am a mother of 2 little boys and a wife to a wonderful guy. When my boys allow me, I love to make things for the special people in my life.
