Playing with some new stamps!

Well, it's about time to upload some new cards, FINALLY! I had a little bit of a creative mojo this weekend and took some time to play w/ my new stamp sets! I sometimes have trouble when I sit down to make cards or other papercrafts coming up w/ a layout or what stamps to use, what paper to use, do I use embellishments or not, it can be overwhelming but this weekend I just sat down and went with what came to me. Probably not my best cards but Hey, at least I made some! Enjoy!

But, I wanted to give a shout out to my one and only follower... you asked for another post and HERE IT IS!! Keep in tune because eventually ( and not another year later) there will be more to come! Love ya Jen!!!

Happy Happy Birthday!

January/February were busy months for Birthdays. My mom's birthday was the 17th, our niece, Jordan's, was on the 18th, and then Chad's God-daughter's birthday was February 6th. I finally got to use my new toy, Cricut Create, to make the cards. I actually only used them to cut out the names for the two cards but I still had a great time using it. My mom's card is my first attempt at a quilt card. I messed up in a few spots but all in all it's not too bad. I hope you enjoy!

A favorite saying...

"When I say, 'I am a Christian' I'm not shouting I'm clean livin'. I'm
whispering I was lost and now I'm found and forgiven. When I say, 'I am a Christian' I don't speak of this with pride. I'm confessing that I stumble and need Christ to be my guide. When I say, 'I'm a Christian' I'm not trying to be strong. I'm professing that I'm weak and need HIS strength to carry on. When I say, 'I am a Christian' I'm not bragging of success. I'm admitting I have failed and need Jesus to clean my mess. When I say, 'I am a Christian' I'm not claiming to be perfect. My flaws are far too visible but Jesus believes I am worth it. When I say, 'I'm a Christian' I still feel the sting of pain. I have my share of heartaches so I call upon His Name. When I say, 'I'm a Christian' I'm not holier than thou. I'm just a simple sinner who
received Christ's good grace, some how."

Love is in the Air!

With Valentines Day just around the corner I decided to be ahead of the game and actually work on cards for the upcoming holiday in advance instead of the day before! I'm usually way behind on my projects, especially Christmas cards, and thought that maybe I should get my poop in a group for once. Here are the two cards I made over the weekend. I just love this stamp set. It's called Love You Much and it's from Stampin Up! (of course). I'm also absolutely in LOVE with this new DSP. It's from the Occaisions Mini Catalog and it's called Sending Love. It's adorable!!

White Chocolate Cranberry Blondies-Yummo!

Last Fall I participated in a bake off for the United Way Campaign at work. The participants were to bring their baked goods in to be judged and then once the judging was complete the goodies were divided up to be sold in the bake sale. Well, my White Chocolate Cranberry Blondies won in the Cookie and Bar category! I was so excited! I never win anything!! The prize was a gift card to a local Gourmet cooking store and a really cute fall serving tray. Even though the bake off was last fall I still wanted to upload the pictures because it was a really great time for me and I had even more fun taking pictures of the mess I made. Enjoy!

Crafting in the Cold

Well, I'm feeling pretty crafty today. I got my Cricut Create about 2 days ago and so far I'm loving it. I keep going over and over the crazy things I can do now in my head and it's almost overwhelming!! I can't wait to get some vinyl and try doing some projects w/ that. I will post pics when I do. Stay tuned..
