Get well cards

Hello crafters, I forgot to post this yesterday but I did get them off in the mail. I used my Explore again. I just love that it is simple to get a card knocked out so quick. My husbands nephew had emergency surgery Sunday so this first card is off to him. I chatted with his mother today via FB and he is doing well but he can not do any lifting for 6 weeks long time for a young man.
I goggled comfort sentiments for cards and this is what I found.  
I loved it so much I used it for both of my cards. I used the Crayola markers in the Explore
This card is for my cousin she also had emergency surgery Sunday. She has been off work all week with no lifting. I know she will love the color combo.
As always be bless

Baby Z layout

Hello crafters, I will be working on Baby Z's album for my daughter I need to upload and order all the pictures I have saved off of FB of baby Z for this keep sake album for them. I purchased a real nice album the other day at Joann's that I can't wait to fill with baby Z's pictures. 

For this page I used CTMH Z7173B BabyCakes paper packet, the so sweet is from the My Stickerease Assortment Z7173C and the little buttons are from BabyCakes Assortment Z1869 I knew I loved this paper when I saw it and knew I had to have two of it (thanks Shanta lol)

 I used the Cricut Explore to cut the layout in the design studio with the make it now so all I had to do was pic out the paper

the stars and sleep baby cut perfect
my mat wasn't sticky enough and I missed the moon up but it doesn't look too bad

I just love how this simple layout came together look for more with this paper pack while I work on the album.

Little KD Thunder

My oldest grandson Kendrian (KD) worried me so bad yesterday for his shirt. I wasn't in the mood to craft yesterday so when he got up this morning he started again about how he wanted his jersey shirt to wear to school. So I asked him what he wanted and he told me and I thought to myself man I should have just done it yesterday since it was so simple and easy. I used the font Varsity and I had a tee shirt already and the vinyl so he  was a happy camper going to school this morning. 

Well time for bed it was a long first day back to work.

Baby Z

Good morning, I made myself a shirt and wore it to my daughters house and she and her husband wanted one then my other daughter wanted one and the list just kept growing 20 shirts complete for family and friends to wear to Zaiden's services tonight. It just hurts my heart that this grandson will not be able to ask his Nana to make him anything so these shirts were made out of love for the projects that I will not get to make for baby Z. I got the split Z from a FB group that a lady donated the whole alphabet and then I found a font that I loved and ran with it.  

I know I have said it before but I just love the Explore the ease of everything. I found some baby tags cut them and used the crayola markers that Danita's niece LaShaundra posted on FB love it since I didn't bring my other markers with me this week.  So these worked out just perfect since I had a Wally in this small City and no craft stores. 

I would like to ask for prayers today since we will have Baby Z wake tonight and then bury him tomorrow. I can't help but to feel so cheated of his time but I know God has everything worked out for our good

sad this is the only picture I have of me with baby Z (the other baby is my other grandson Kai who is 6 months)

I am trying to keep myself busy today so I decided to bling my explore up. I used the application skitch on the ipad that my good friend Danita told me about to create The Scrappin in my handwriting and Diva is from the Rock Princess cart and of course I had to add some bling to off to the next project

Baby Zaiden

For those of you that follow me on Facebook know I lost my little grandson Zaiden on Friday. We still don't know the case of death but we think it was SIDS. Z was only 2 months old and it is so hard to believe this little guy is in heaven. I had to go to my daughter today so we could go to the funeral home and get the arrangements today so this morning I decided to make a shirt in his memory. I used the explore and I can't believe how simple the vinyl was with this machine again I am in love with it. 
I wore my shirt and my daughter and her husband wants a shirt. Then my other daughter wants one for herself and son. Tonight my daughter just texted me and stated she needed a couple more for her friends so I will have something to keep me busy and my mind busy.

Within the 2 months this little fellow was here he had so many different looks I am so going to miss him and seeing him grow into a big boy

Please continue to pray for my daughter Kendra and her husband Jermey

Happy Birthday Jessie

Yep another birthday card. Yesterday was my cousin's husband birthday and I didn't get a chance to upload this card.  I used the explorer again, as you know I am a simple person and this machine is right up my alley. I used an image off one of the carts that didn't have a shadow and I tried to give it one but failed and time was not on my side so I rushed this card but it is one that is complete and get in the mail. 
I used an old DCWV Safari Chic stack
I pulled out my Ultimate guide to the perfect word for the inside sentiment.
Then I topped it off with an animal print envelope, I keep this up I will have put a small dent in the  
12x12 stack of animal paper

Happy Birthday Rodney

Today is my kids dad birthday and he always loved chocolate cake. I may try and make him one this weekend but today this card is off in the mail to him. I used the explorer and can I say again I just love this machine. I am so happy to have fallen back in love with Cricut. The cupcake comes from the cart Cake Basics and I used stickles to give it that extra. I used the font Tear Drop for the writing sentiment. 
The paper was from a stack from WalMart Colorbox Natural Expression. 

Okay now I need to start typing in my sentiments in the inside of the cards so I will limit my spending on stamps (Prayerfully)

I will be submitting his to Sweet Sundays for the sketch and Craftin Desert Divas

Happy Birthday Rodney

Come on Spring

Hello crafters, I don't know about you but I am so ready for old man winter to get out of here. So I thought I would make this simple spring card to get myself in a better mood. I played around with the cricut design software and I found so many images that I forgot I even bought on the carts. I can't remember right off hand which image this one was off but I want to say a Spring cart ??? any way it brought a smile to my face.

I even managed to make an envelope to go along with it although the paper was from a 12x12 DCWV stack and the card paper was from that same Wal Mart stack that has been sitting on my desk but I like it.

Note cards

Hey crafters, my sister asked me for some note cards and I was happy to get rid of some of my product in my room. I used the explorer and tried to use my fonts installed on my computer.

I can't remember the name of the font but it was to intricate for the explorer so I went with Elegant cake for the font.
I used Paper Studio Harpers Boutique for the black and white cards and on the color ones I used colorbok Light Bright

Glasses layout

Good morning crafters, I finished that layout that I had cut out the images on the cricut explorer yesterday. I used the cartridge Dr Checkup and this is only the second time I have used it shame shame right. 
Well my son, grandson and I had eye appointments a few weeks ago and we all walked out needing glasses which my son and myself  are use to them but my grandson it was his first time. Dr stated he needed reading glasses so he got a pair and stated he looks like a nerd (but a smart one lol) I pulled out an old 12x12 stack by My Mind's Eye Twinkle Twinkle little star

I even pulled out a sticker set I bought on HSN Write on I really should have been using this said to say I want another one and I have only used 3 out of it lol. The Sweet came out of it as well 

Well I better get to moving got more projects to knock out....Be Bless

Cricut Explorer

I must admit I was the first to say I wasn't going to get this machine but OMG my first cut this morning.....I Am in Love lol

I told several of my girlfriends if I didn't like it...HSN was getting it back but no way this is a keeper...just wish I could send the two expressions, E2, Imagine, mini  and gypsy away. Thank goodness I gave away the create and cake machine.

I do believe this will be my first go to machine :)
Fist cuts I will finish the layout when I get back to my Oklahoma home of my grandson getting his first pair of glasses.

Okay really I can not buy any more machines
