Thanksgiving last cards for the yr

Image
Today is my mother's birthday and if she would have lived she would be 64 yrs old. We lost her early she was only 37 but as always GOD is good. Gone but never forgot...Happy Birthday Mommy love and miss you to pieces. 
I finished up my last cards for my grand daughters. I cut the teddy from Teddy Bear Parade cartridge on the explore machine. I even put the teddy's on a wobble for the girls  





This card I made for my friend Sherri and her husband William. I managed to pull out the Cameo to cut the pie.
I made the envelope with the stack from DCWV Sweater Weather.  last card was for my other friend Julia and I used the explore to cut this turkey out and used the $1 stamp from my stash from Joanns a few yrs ago

Thanksgiving was never meant to be shut up in a single day. ~Robert Caspar Lintner


For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson

Thanksgiving

Image
Remember the reason for the season - thankful

I completed all of my cards. Some are very simple for my family that I did manage to get in the mail on time. Some of these I used the CTMH kit to mass produce 20 cards love those kits



This is one of my favorites I made for a sweet friend. I love the easy of these flip it  dies

To simple for a person that is always running behind. Only thing now I need to order another A & B plate for my embosser




Not sure which papers I used I just pulled out all my fall paper and got busy



This one is for my sister since I didn't lay the paper on straight but it is the thought that counts right lol

As always be bless


Animal print

Image
Morning, crafters today I was playing with my embroidery machine. I purchased this font from  so I wanted to see what it looked like on my bathroom towels. Before I got married my bedroom and bathroom was some type of animal print. Last week hubby and I went to WalMart and I knew I wanted something different in the bathroom and I touched this set and he said get it. First time in 9 yrs I had some animal again. Love it but it looks better with the M on it.



I got another wedding coming up and now I know my money went to a good place with this font.

Thankful

Hello crafters, quick post here while I am waiting on my work intranet to come up. I thought of those charges I bought a few yes ago on clearance somewhere. I purchased the file from silhouette and cut the file with my cameo 
After looking at it I may go back and add some words around the charger just a little plain but for a quick project I am happy. One less unused item in my stash

My project life swap Divas cards on FB

Image
This will be my last swap for awhile. I really enjoyed it but I hate spending postage I may just play along for me to keep myself busy.
This first PL is my favorite but I tell you what that AC glitter paper isn't any good. I used my Explore machine to write out Jingle Bells and some musical paper.


I guess I was in a rush when I took this picture on this second one. (sorry for the blurriness) I used Stamps of Life stamp and die for the snowman.. I used that awful ac glitter white paper for the snowman and the staze on ink didn't work well either but I refused to start over so I used the viva black ink to add in the eyes, mouth and button 



The last one I used again a Stamps of Life Christmas die and stamp set. Another mistake was to stamp on vellum urgg and I just noticed the writing is upside down on this card...oh well this swap is complete and off in the mail on time.

Week 45 Give Thanks

Image
Today I was talking to my crafty sistahs as I do everyday....(I just love this women). Treva suggested since we have done some Thanksgiving cards to post to SOC Sistah/Brotha Challenge Week 45 give Thanks. I do good for a minute then I fall all off. I haven't posted on SOC in a long while well tonight here is my simple card. I also told the ladies I was going to scrap lift this card from Courtney Lane


I used an old $1 stamp I think from Joann's and my Explore to cut out the leaf 

Well I got a lot more cards to get done before Thanksgiving

Baby Ly'Ana

Image
I just love when my mojo is at home and she stays for awhile. I also love making things for my family and friends. Today I have a few things I made for my little cousins new baby Ly'Ana


I saw this fabric at Joann's and just fell in love with it but I tell you what I will never use it again. This stuff just slides so bad.


I followed a youtuber for this video how to make this pinterest inspired mini. I love how it came out but since my cousin isn't a scrapper I left it plain just to add pictures. 


Ly'Ana  is a cute little chocolate baby girl.


This mini was so simple a must to keep for quick ones. 













I had to make some quick onesies using my Explorer machine





Enjoy Relax

Image
Today is my husbands oldest daughter Crystal birthday and she is like me LOVE to cruise so I thought this card would fit her to a T. She loves the beach matter of fact I believe she is going this weekend. 

I used Stamps of life stamps and die for this card paper in my stash


Happy Birthday Crystal we love you

Welcome Darton

Hello Crafters, for some reason I keep forgetting to post on my blog now. 
Here is a project I did for my girlfriends new grandson


I enjoyed making these projects
I made some simple onesies and since my girlfriend's family are cowgirls and cowboys this was just right.





I should have did a close up of the charms. I found at Hobby Lobby a cowboy hat and boot. My girlfriend enjoyed the gifts





It is simple but since she isn't a crafter she can just add the pictures and have a complete mini. I have more blank pages but I didn't add them in this post

You got a friend in me

Good morning crafters, I wanted to show off this cute simple card I made. I am really trying to use what I have or what I get new in the door. This paper is old Teresa Collins Carolina Breeze. The stamp is an old one from CTMH You Got a Freind in Me. I had embossed it with one of those Lindys Embossing powders that was just sitting in my room. The butterfly was a new item I got in the mail from the Anna Griffin folders die auto ship purchase from HSN. 


The inside stamp is from Stamps of Life Strawberries2stamp


I had fun making this simple card
God Bless

Project Life Card Swap Divas

Image
Hello Saturday crafters, today I have completed my first set of PL cards for Project Life Card Swap Divas  This is my least favorite of the three but non the less it is done. It is a 4x4 winter card Triple stamping technique. I used a snowflake stamp from S&P and the warm winter wishes is from ctmh Frosted


The next one was Rainy day. I used my cloud punch, Stamps of Life stamps for the sentiment and for the boots
This last one is my favorite. I used my Explore machine with the slice feature to cut the leaves out and add the paper to the back of the card. I added sequence and the stamp is another CTMH stamp gratitude
