I found this file in the SVG Cutting Files store and thought I might use it some day. Someone special in my life is expecting child #2 but has not announced it to the world, hence my discreteness. I'm waiting for my BFF to tell me she's pregnant with her #2 also....but I haven't heard from her lately...hmmmm. I digress, I am elated for her. Made this out of purple paper not even thinking about the PURPLE challenge, so I'm submitting my second project! Yippee! Come back soon for more projects!

I was surfing for free cut files the other day and came across this cute VW Bus. My friend Denise's birthday is tomorrow so her card will be late. I did red polka dots because it reminded me of Minnie Mouse's dress and she's a HUGE Disney fan! I rushed myself so much I forgot to sign the card and I wanted to add Mickey ears to the VW circle. C'est la vie! Have a Disney Day! Thx, Jen

My godparents sent me a belated birthday card and to my surprise there was a $15 Starbucks gift card for me. I was pleasantly surprised as I have not received a gift from them since I was a child. So I whipped up a quick thank you card for them. First I'd like to thank Kate from Small Bits of Paper for her awesome tutorial on cutting your Cricut files. (the ones you own, for integrity purposes). You can find it here - Kate's Video! Thanks for stoppin' by!

Warm Greetings! Today I finally got my calendar for 2014 up on the wall with all the birthdays and anniversaries written down. I know, March is almost over; I missed a few birthdays but got some important ones and noted who will be how old. My main goal is to at least acknowledge those with milestone birthdays. Lately I have been practicing tracing coloring pages with the Cameo and I am loving it! Some of my cuts were not as clean as I wanted but it's handmade, right? Still way better than a Hallmark card, IMHO. After filling in birthdays for March I discovered that my daughter's former children's worship ministry intern was turning the BIG 3-0 on Friday. As I was a tween/teen in the 80's I just had to do a card from that era for Hillary. I know the Smurfs were quite the pop icon way back when and I'm hoping that she will be surprised and love the card I made for her. Thanks for stoppin' by!
