My Creative Time Challenge - Celebrations

I was so excited to join Emma at for another of her "Throwback Thursday" challenges.  I just love to see what she creates with the older Cricut cartridges and I am always so happy that I can join her.  The theme this week was birthdays.  She asked us to use the Celebrations cartridge and our project could be anything we wanted.  I was so excited to make a birthday card for my cute friend.  Also, a special congratulations goes out to Emma for her first DVD!!  I have mine on order and cannot wait to receive it!  That is so exciting, and I am thrilled for her.  Thanks so much for visiting and be sure to check Emma's blog to view all of the gorgeous entries!  Happy Crafting!

WHOO-RAY! A Baby Shower Invitation

My darling SIL is expecting her first baby in September.  I am thrilled beyond words for her and my big brother so I wanted to do a shower.  I love to go to baby showers, so I wanted hers to be super special!  We are all so excited for them that "WHOO-RAY!" seemed to be a perfect theme.  Sincere thanks go to Missy and Jill for their endless hours of helping me get these ready to mail.  You gals ROCK!  Stay tuned for more great "owl" projects to go with the shower.  We have tons in store!  Thanks for visiting!

My Creative Time Challenge - Wild Card

First off, I want to sincerely thank Emma for hosting another challenge.  I have been so happy I can make time to join her, and I was thrilled beyond words that I was chosen the winner of last week's Throwback Thursday.  I was truly in disbelief.  I cannot wait to get my Zooballoo cartridge out and get caught up on my scrapbooks!  Thank you Emma and Peachy Keen Stamps! 

Now, on to this week's Throwback Thursday.  She chose Wild Card and asked that we do our favorite holiday and make a card for it.  For me, that was a no-brainer!  I LOVE Valentine's Day and thought this was a perfect time to make a card for my hubby... or daughter.  I haven't decided who this will go to!  I used the "Argyle" cut because I love argyle and my card just came together from there.

Please be sure to check and check out all the beautiful entries for this week's challenge.  Thanks for visiting!

Grandmother's Poem

My husband's grandmother is one of the sweetest women I know. She is super talented in so many areas and is just one those ladies you wish you could be more like. She is amazing with ceramics, and does these tiny little intricate flowers on most of her pieces that I would just kill for! She has a friend who's son is leaving on an LDS mission in the Fall and she wanted to give her a piece with a boy kneeling. I love this piece, so I was happy she'd call to tell me about it. Well, she wanted to know if I could take her poem she had written and "dress it up". I was beyond flattered. She told me she needed three of them, but she didn't care what they looked like. My thinking was, I'd design three different styles and she could pick the one she liked best, and I'd put two more of them together. I delivered them to her, and she loved them all, and decided to keep all three! It's always so fun to have such a talented woman enjoy the things I make. It makes my hobby that much better! Thanks for visiting!

I'm so sorry about the poor picture quality.

HOORAY! I was able to join Emma from and her "Throwback Thursday" Challenge. I absolutely love Zooballoo. It was the second cartridge I ever got for my Cricut! I decided to try to make a "Post It Note Holder" and put that cute lil' fox on it. I just love him! Thank you so much Emma for doing your fabulous challenges. They ROCK! Thanks for visiting...

"My Creative Time" Challenge - New Arrival

I finally was able to make a little time to play along with Emma at and her New Arrival Throwback Thursday Challenge. I really love New Arrival, and I hate to admit it, but I don't use it like I should! I hope to get better about using it because it really does have some great cuts on it! Thanks for visiting!
