Last Day of school

Yesterday was the last day of school for my son and grand son. I made my grand son a shirt from this blog with the SVG and bought him a fabric pen to write his name and his classmates name on it. 

As you can see he was excited but he is really sad about leaving 1st grade. He wants to stay in 1st grade so I had to explain to him that he has past it and it is time to move on and his friends will be going with him.

I didn't get a shot of him with all the names written on it because I was in a rush to get back to work but I got him running to me

Until next time be bless

Happy Birthday to my sister Tracey and my brother in law Kevin

Today is my little sister Tracey and one of my favorite brother in laws birthday

I started with this card from gate fold card off splitcosterstampers  it has been awhile since I have done a gate fold and forgot how simple and fun they are

I used paper from a fancy pants stack but I didn't right it down and I am not home to look for it while posting

I believe the stamps are from S&P company

this card is for my brother in law Kevin who collects Allis Chalmers tractors and I thought this card was perfect for him. I went in my scrap been for the card stock

Happy Birthday JR

Today is my husbands son JR birthday and he was in the reserves and he loves his guns 
so I thought he would get a bang out of this card. I used my explore machine to cut the rifles and the hand written sentiment with the crayola pens...(we were on our way out so the glue isn't dry on the dew drop)

the inside again was used with the explore pen function. 

I am late posting this but Friday night I played along with SOC ladies at Friday night chat 

Challenge #1 - In honor of MJ's birthday we are creating a birthday card using embossing, animal print paper and a metal.  Your card can include other items but must have those three!

don't laugh at my mat it has seen better days  lol

Challenge #2 - Create a Father's Day card, must include the color blue, a die cut and a neck tie!

Challenge #3 - Create a tag, honor someone in the military or the memory of a love one.

Sunny preK graduate

My grand daughter graduated from preK the other day sadly I didn't get to make it but her mother sent me the pic so I knew I had to scrap my little cute girl.

I used the cricut explore to cut the images out. I don't know which cuts the cart came from I just typed in graduate and saw them images and cut them but the frame I found under frames. 

Sunny is a smart little cookie

I used one of my fiscar punches for the gray piece 

I will link this to Scraps of Color Sistah & Brotha Challenge week 14 I am so far behind but hopefully my mojo will stay with me and I can catch up again.

Happy Birthday Sue

Hello crafters, today is an old co worker of mine birthday. I knew I wanted to make Sue a cute card but I knew it would have to be quick so I got on the explore and tried this Anna Griffin card and it was simple. I used an old stack of K&Company paper not sure off hand which one but sad thing is I just cut the seal on it. I added some pearl bling to it and now I have a cute simple card to drop in the mail. The Happy Birthday to my friend is from another Anna Griffin card collection I bought on HSN

and the inside of the envelope 

then I made my son a tee shirt of his favorite team. I use to buy shirts from a website and I traced the image of this football from that site and pulled it into the explore and now he has a Mommy shirt :)

Mothers day gift

Good Morning, quick post here. I am running up to my mother in law and I wanted to make these simple gifts last yr when I bought all these glass cutting boards from the dollar tree but I didn't and last night I looked for the file that Logan's crafty mom shared with me last yr and I could not find it so I went in the the silhouette store and purchased the utensils and did a split not as good as the original I had but I got rid of 6 glass boards that were just sitting on my table.

Lois is my mother in law

I made one for all of my sister in laws, because I was in such a rush this morning I don't have time for a great pic. Now I got to get on the road because we have dinner at noon and I haven't done what I need to do for me so the clock is ticking

Mother's Day cards

Okay, last night I made no excuses and got down with my simple cards and got them in the mail but of course they will be late

on this silhouette it was the stamp from CTMH so I scanned in the lady image and then cut it out on the explore

 more simple cards

On these I used some of the embellishments from Anna Griffin to make these simple ones

I promise next yr to start early. I even had to leave out some people this go round because I just didn't have the time.
