Deepest Thanks!

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!

Happy 30th Smurfday!

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!

SVG Cutting Files PURPLE Monthly Challenge!

Hi folks! I've neglected my blog for about a year now and am ready to get back in the game! It's not as fancy as some of the others but I basically just post the cards, crafts and baked goods that I make. Last month my mom received a Silhouette Cameo for her anniversary. When she asked me what I wanted for my birthday I told her that I wanted the same thing she received for her anniversary. LOL! So since we live together she was gracious enough to share with me. Day one of playing for hours was disastrous and she was ready to give up, I convinced her that there was a learning curve with any new machine and vowed to learn how to use it and teach her what I learned. We are former Cricut users and I still love my bugs, but there's plenty of room for the Cameo too! I do not normally participate in blog hops or challenges but I am going to try to do both. Here's what I came up with for the purple challenge...Thanks for stoppin' by and checking my blog out!
