Basketball Popup Box Card

Hi everyone! Well my son just turned 17! 😱 Where did the time go? Why do they have to grow up? I love that he is growing up so fast and is so much fun but can't he slow down a little...😩 
Anyways, he has grown to love playing basketball these last couple of years and has started to greatly improve in his ability to play. We are very proud of him! So naturally his card had to be all about the game and it needed to be cool.
So this is what I came up with!








Thanks for coming over and I hope you have a fabulous day! 

2015-2016 B-ball Coaches

Hello again! Officially basketball season has come to an close for this school year. We are happy but sad that it is over. Happy because of all the nonstop running from here to there and such. But sad because it so much fun to meet new friend and old ones and just to simply cheer on our son and his team! They did pretty good this year considering they got a bunch of new players and some had never played Basketball before. By the end of the season they finally found what works for them and started beating all the other teams. They also surprised everyone and won the championship game too. We are all so proud of them! They worked really hard for that! 
So of course we are greatly appreciative for the coaches who worked equally as hard at coaching them. I have always made a card for them at the end of the season and this is what they received! Simple and quick! 

The basketball on this one is on an action wobble to give the card a bit of movement and fun.
Thanks for coming by, come back by again soon and have a great day!

Layered Trees

Hi!  I hope you all are doing well!  So I made this card for a very special lady. She is such a joy and a blessing when she comes to visit and just really knows how to love people and be an encouragement to those around her. So I just felt so compelled to make and send her an extra special card. This is what I came up with! I hope she likes it. 
Thank you for popping by and have a blessed day! 

Ordination Card

Recently our assistant pastor was ordained to be a pastor. What a great time of worship and meeting of new friends. It was a very special weekend for us all, but especially for him. He not only was ordained but he also launched his book that day. This book was 7 years in the making and God finally released it to the world. I am very eager to read it. 
Either way, on such a special day, you gotta make a card, right? 😃 A very simple card yet very classy looking! 


Thanks for looking and I hope you have a wonderful day! 

Boys Dinosaur Glass Block


Hello everyone!  I was recently asked to make another glass block for someone's baby boy shower. I found out what their theme was for their baby's room and from there I was able to customize it, down to what his name will be when he makes his entrance into the world. I love the ball cap on the dinosaur! I was very pleased at how well this turned out and I know the momma liked it too! Such a simple little personalized gift to give for many occasions. 



Thanks for taking peek at what I have been up to in my crafting room! I hope you have a great day! 

Valentine's Day Popup Cards

Hi again!  I made Valentine's Day cards for my kids and my hubby! My kids all said they really didn't want a box of chocolates this year, so I just bought a little bit of candy and gadgets...kinda like Easter baskets but no basket. These were free cuts from Cricut for the month of February so I jumped on it and used them. I love pop up cards, so now I think I NEED this cartridge. Well played Cricut...😱  








Thanks for taking a look at what I have been up to lately! 
I hope you have fabulous day filled with many fabulous blessings! 

Foxy Birthday

Hello again, I am trying to do catchup of my crafty creations from the past few months. 
I made this layered card for my daughter's 14th birthday. Hard to believe she is 14 now. She has always loved her animals. It was perfect timing that I had just gotten the Four Seasons Home Decor Cricut Cartridge. And of course so I just had to try it out! 😃 I think it turned out pretty good. Plus I know she liked it and that is what matters.

Thanks you so much for stopping by!
I hope you have a great day! 

Baby Girl Glass Block

Hello all! I have recently had the pleasure of making a glass block nightlight for a dear friends new baby girl. I have never done one before but I think it turned out pretty good. Such a simple and quick gift to make and give, and it is very personal. I love how it has the baby's birth stats on it too, that makes it super personalized. She really loved it! It is now her nightlight for those late night feedings!❤️
Thanks so much for coming by and I hope you have a fantastic day!

Gift Card Envelopes

Hello again!  I hope you are still doing well!  Well, if you have not had this happen you are "lucky"!  Several years ago, my family was celebrating Christmas with over 15 people in one room opening gifts and gift wrap was a flying.  In all the excitement, my dad misplaced his gift card from us and it got mixed in with the gift wrap and was thrown away, and wasn't missed until days later and the trash was already disposed of.  So since then I have been making some kind of envelope to help the gift cards to be a bit bigger and less likely to be lost.  This is what I came up with for this year.  Very simple and quick to make.  The bow was made using my envelope punch board!  I love that thing!  Everyone that got one, loved the packaging and the contents inside, of course!  And as far as I know, no one lost their gift card!  Woohoo!  Success!

Thank you again for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful new year filled with lots of joy and blessings!

2015 Thanksgiving Craft-Coasters

Hello my crafting friends!  I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and Christmas!  Our holiday season was extremely busy but full of fun and great memories!  This post is about my craft that I chose to do this year for my family, we exchange crafts on Thanksgiving Day!  I did coasters!  A little bit of paper, a little bit of cutting on my Cricut Explore, a little bit of decoupage and a little bit of clear acrylic finish, and boom, it is done!  Note:  Get yourself a good quality acrylic finish that is water proof and doesn't yellow.  Don't do cheap quality.  I have had to learn the hard way.  Ugh!  In this case you get what you pay for.  The acrylic I got was cheap and has yet to cure and harden.  So if they are not packed away, with parchment paper to keep them from sticking they will stick to each other and be ruined.   I used a roll of cork and cut to the size of the tile for the backing to keep them from scratching the table that they may be placed on and attached it with just your normal craft glue.  Either way, this is what they looked like as they were "drying" from the acrylic finish.
Thanks for stopping in and I hope you have a fabulous new year in 2016!
