Birthday Couple!

Hello all!  I hope you all are doing well!  I know we have been VERY busy around here, and it just does not seem to let up.  Just trying to squeeze in a few things here and there, on top of all the other things going on in our crazy lives.  I love being busy, but sometimes it can get to you and you just need to rest a bit.  Anyway, part of my busy-ness is due to procrastination.  Then when you have procrastinated and others things get added to the pile suddenly you are really going nuts!  I am sure none of you have this problem!   Well, I just found out this week that my hubby's Uncle and his wife had their first wedding I quickly put together a card for them.  I was in such a hurry, that I failed to get a picture!  Humph!  Then I find out that both of their birthdays are coming up just a week I have made them both a card and this time I got pictures!  Plus, we have had several graduates this year, and more birthdays and in between all of this is Father's Day cards.  Whew!  Anyways, here are the birthday cards for our Uncle and Aunt!

Gaming Birthday!

Hello dear friends! So I have been busy like crazy and have failed to take the time to post any of my projects as of lately.  There are many more cards being made and in the process as I type this!  So stick with me through this next month as I will be posting many more...later!
Well, my nephew had his big 13th birthday about two weeks ago and yes I am just now getting around to sharing it with you all!
He is really big into the X-Box games and such and I always try to do a card that has to do with whatever they are interested at that time.  So naturally, I had to make something to do with the X-Box.  So this is what I came up with!  He seemed to love it, when he opened it he nodded his head and with a big grin, said, "Oh yeah! Now that is what I am talking about!" LOL

I used:
Plantin SchoolBook Cricut Cartridge
Cricut Craft Room Basics Cartridge
Recollections Comic Heros paper
Two shades of grey carstock
Sizzix Dots on a Line Embossing Folder
Colored brads
Stampin Up! Crystal Effects for the "X-Box Logo"
Action Wobble
The Sentiment is computer Generated
Brown bakers twine
Well, thank you for taking a peek at what
 I have been doing!
I hope you have a great day!
