Hi Fellow Crafters!
I hope that you are all enjoying this hump day!
I am really looking forward to this weekend. I have a lot going on. On Saturday, we have a wedding to go to for my husband’s co-worker. I am a little nervous because the reception is a the country club and lets face it I am just a small time country girl. I know nothing about country club etiquette and I am worried that I will use the wrong fork and it might cause the world to stop turning or something. Just kidding. But I AM NERVIOUS ABOUT THAT! And on Sunday its my BIRTHDAY!!!! I will be 31! I was so worried about turning 30 that I cried for days but this year has been full of wonderful things and I learnt a lot about myself. So bring on 31 I am ready for it!!!

Ok back to the wedding. I had to make a card for the happy couple and I am not sure that I like this one but for now this is what I am going with but I may change my mind at the last minute.
I used the sweetheart’s cartridge to cut out the Mr. and Mrs. Image. I used purple cardstock and then cut the shadow on a shimmery purple velum. I add a little doodle to that.
Then I placed vellum over the mat layer only at the top to create a muted look. BTW that paper is from a black and white slice stack by making memories. I found it at Tuesday morning and couldn't pass it up for 1.99.
The ribbon is from wal-mart. The picture doesn’t really show it but it has shimmer as well.
I think it might have taken me 15 minutes to cut it all out and put it together. Super cute and super easy.

Well that is all I have for today, Thanks for stopping by!

I've been MIA!!!!

Hi Everyone!
I am so sorry that I have been MIA for the past few weeks.
I have missed posting and commenting on everyone blogs, but I have been having internet troubles.
So I thought today I would give you all a little update. I finally got my cricut back, but When I received it I kinda lost my mojo. I did make 200 bookmarks for the volunteers at my church but silly me forgot to take a picture. Other than that I have been doing a few cards and playing with some new goodies that I have gotten.
Let’s see I guess I can list some of the new things that I got.
Cricut Carts:
Everyday pop up cards
Wrap it up
Simply charmed
B is for boy (lite cart)
Celebrate with flourish (lite cart)
Sugar and spice (lite cart)
Bloom (lite cart)
Block party. (lite cart)

I finally got a heat gun and some embossing powder. I have to say that I must be doing something wrong because it just doesn’t turn out right for me, so that is something that I have been playing with.

I gotten a few stamp sets from my local big lots that were only 2 bucks.  I couldn’t believe that. Most of them were inkadinkado or Hampton arts. I have been putting my stamps in cd cases, and trying to get them organized.

I have gotten several new paper stacks that are super cute.

Some of the stuff was early birthday presents since my Bday is on the 14th of August. I cant wait to see what my hubby got me. I kinda know but I just cant wait to get my hands on it.

Lets see other news in my life, My job hunting my have paid off. I have an interview on Thursday. The manager sounded positive that I would get the job. Its not much, waitress at coffee house but any job is good. I have not worked in 7 years because of my back and I am ready to get back out there and give it a try. Maybe it will help ease the bickering between hubs and me. He is such a wonderful man and great provider, He has always taken care of me, since I was not able to work but I think that sometimes, it gets to him, when there is things that we would like to do and cant. Please just pray that I get the Job, I think that it would lift my spirits a bunch.
This month has been hard for me. I found out that 2 of my friends have cancer. A good high school friend was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer and he is only 31.
My best friend that I spend so much time with was diagnosed with leukemia. I am just praying that they will both make it through and that Gods will be done for them. It has been very taxing on my nerves knowing that they are both suffering. Ok enough of that.

I think that is all that I have to share today. I have a card or twenty that I might post pictures of this week and I will be back to let you know if I got the job! Fingers crossed!
