The most wonderful thing happened today...

So my 13 year old son had his best friend over for the last couple of days. Today I am sitting at my scrapbook table (which is in our living room). He and his bestie are watching tv. I am working on a card. He says to me "who are you working on that card for?". I say "I am working on it for xxx." He say's its his besties mom's birthday today. (I know besties mom very well. She is a friend of mine and I love her. But, somehow I didn't know it was her birthday.) Anywho, my son says that his bestie would like one of my cards for his mom's birthday! That made me feel so good! And if that wasn't already the best, as bestie, my son and I are looking through my stash, my son says "yeah, my mom is really good." My heart melted! What a great son I have! I made sure to tell him how great he is and how great he made me feel!

My Pink Stamper Design Team Entry

Over at Robyn is having a design team call. To enter you have to make a card, scrapbook page or other Cricut project with our own favorite cartridge using Robyn's favorite colors. The colors we have to use are pink, green, brown and one more of our own choosing. Well, this was not too hard for me to do, 'cause pink and brown are my two fave colors! The additional color I used was purple. We also have to post the recipe to our project. So here goes the recipe:
"Beautiful" Card
Owl - Paisley Cartridge - 3.5"
Scallop - Mini Monograms - 5.12"
"beautiful" - Paisley - 1"
Gems - Micheal's $1 bin
Ribbon - from my stash
Paper - brown - Core'dinations
Paper - Patterned - DCWV, misc. Spring Stacks
Flower Brads - Making Memories
Ink - Cat's Eye
Googley Eyes - from my stash

Everything is created on my Gypsy and cut from there. It saves so much paper and makes it so much easier. Thanks for looking!

You are fabulous Card - Cricut Paisley and Street Sign

Hi all! Here is "for the fun of it" card I made today. The base of the card is a standard 5.5" x 4.25" card. I just cut it so it would open to the side instead of to the top. The "You are" is cut at 1" using Street Signs. The "fabulous" is cut using "Paisley" at 1" The mushroom is cut at 3.50" also using Paisley. This cut has a few layers, but comes out darling. The patterned paper is from a DCWV Spring stack that is a few years old. The cardstock is Core'dinations. I added a bit of bling. I just love how the colors came out on this one! TFL!

Happy New Year!!!!

Welcome to 2011!!!! I am excited to start a New Year! I must admit though, I am no party animal. Me and my 2 younger sons camped out in my room at 9:30pm. We had one of our locally famous Scooby Doo cartoon marathons. I think I made it till about 10:30. I know they both beat me because they jumped on the bed to wake me up when the Scooby Doo dvd was My dh (darling husband) and oldest son say they stayed awake for the New Year. But, we did all have a "toast" together before we parted ways for the evening. We had sparkle cider. That stuff is tart! It was such a nice evening together!
Anywhooooo, with the start of the new year, I have a new blog background. Let's see how long this one lasts....
Have a wonderful start to your new year. I hope to be posting lots this year!
