A big SHOUT OUT to all y'all!

Well I want to thank all of you that have come to visit my blog from Fantabulous Cricut.  And I’m honored that some of you want to follow mine : ) 

I’m posting the little mini cards as well as several others I’ve been working on lately.  Check out the Paper Gallery if you have a chance!

Thanks again everyone!!!

Challenges this week!

I’ll be entering the following challenges the week of January 23…

Fantabulous Cricut #95 - Label It!
Mojo Monday - 225
Totally Papercrafts - Make Your Own Flowers


Goodness!!!  That’s the word that about sums up the first few weeks of this year so far.  Now that the house has recovered from the worst stomach virus that has hit our family in years, I’m finally able to get everyone back to work and school…freeing me up for a little “me” time a.k.a. crafting time. 

With the laundry done, supper planned, dog fed, and candles lit, I’m sitting down to pay a little attention to my blog.  That said, a “Valentine-ie” card that I’m entering in a few challenges, and a “Spring-ie” card for my girlfriend, since Houston is flirting with the 80’s these days.

I used metallic colored pencils that looked neat and unused to color in the stamp and shade the flowers.  I found them in the kid's art supplies I reorganized over the weekend.  They are now mine...muah, haaa, haa, ha!

It's a new year!!!

As my husband likes to say…”It’s a new year!”, time to start over, pursue dreams, and continue to work on that never ending to-do list.  At the top of my list -  take down the Christmas decorations.  Ugh…I’ve been putting it off all week, tomorrow for sure!

I got the wonderful news that I’d won my first challenge yesterday.  Fantabulous Cricut was so gracious in awarding me the top challenge honor!  How exciting!  I have to say, that I am so inspired by everyone’s creativity and skills…I only try to duplicate : )
I’ll get started with entering new challenges next week, after I get that Christmas stuff down. I’m finding it’s really exhilarating to win things. Aaahhh, the little things. In the meantime, I’ve uploaded the birthday card I made for my brother-in-law.
