Birthday Card for Parker

Hi Everyone...
Just wanted to post a little card I made for my 2 year old great-nephew Parker's birthday. It's very simple because I know as soon as he opens it, it will get crinkled LOL.  But I put it on an Action Wobble and I hope he enjoys it.
Paper - DCWV Seasonal Stack
CardzTV Stamps - "It's A Guy Thing"

You're Berry Sweet Card, KopyKat Series

Hello Everyone...
How is your Monday?  Mine is great! I texted my sweet friend Sheree this morning and asked her if she was up for a challenge...of course she was LOL.  I challenged her to make anything from Mary's blog over at CardzTV.  Mary is our design team leader and such a sweet, inspirational lady.

Sheree over at Boots and Bling Time made Mary's "Just-Be-Claws Card" and it turned out absolutely adorable!

Here is my card:
I thought this card was so adorable!
This is where you can find Mary's adorable Berry Sweet card.

Enjoy our fun challenges and we hope they inspire you.

My Pinterest Project With Sheree...

Hi Everyone...
So...how many times do you get on Pinterest and pin, pin, pin and never make what you pinned?  I do it all the time.  So, I challenged Sheree to make something from her Pinterest board and I would make something from mine.  I have always loved this card.  I didn't have the exact cartridge, but I was close.  Also, I didn't have this kind of background paper so I made my own.  Here is what I came up with and don't forget to go over and check our Sheree's blog as well to see what she came up with.  Hope this inspires you to get on your Pinterest board and make something you like.  Let me know if you do and I'll link your project to this post.  Have a great day.

I meant to run my leaves through the Divine Swirls Cuttlebug folder but didn't remember until I had glue on one of the leaves LOL...I hate when that happens.

Just Some Cards for Some Friends of Mine...

Hi Everyone....
I was so excited to get in my room last night and make something.  I feel like I'm coming back around.  I challenged myself to use some single sheets of paper I bought a long time ago and I used some of Emma's beautiful stamps from her Just A Little Note To Say set.  I used scrap pieces of ribbon I had and the turtle came from Paisley.  Also, I keep all my Cricut books in two small crates and I decided whatever I pulled out...thats the cart I used.  I was just hoping it wouldn't be Mini Monsters LOL.  So here are some little 4x4 note cards I made.  Have a wonderful weekend.

CardzTV "Moms the Word" Blog Hop

Hi Everyone....
I just love Mother's Day.  There is nothing better than being a mom and daughter.  I go and see my mom on the Saturday before Mother's Day because I have 3 brothers and 1 sister that I have to share  her with.  She's a popular mom.  I always tell her in the cards that I give her that if I had a choice of all the moms in the world, I'd still pick her.
My two favorite mother sayings are "There's no other like my mother" and "If it's not one thing, it's your mother"  LOL.

Welcome to the CardzTV "Moms the Word" Blog Hop.  If you just came from Elaines blog, then you are in the right place.  Your next stop will be Kristens blog.  Every one of my design team sisters have just done a beautiful job.  I know you'll get inspiration from this hop.

Mary will be giving away 2 sets of her fabulous stamps - winner's choice.

Have fun and Happy Mother's Day...here is the card I came up with.

Pause Dream Enjoy 52 Tags - Zoo Theme

Hello Everyone...
How is everyone?  I have decided I'm going back to work.  I haven't worked since last May.  I feel like I'm able enough to drive the school bus again.  I have a great chiropractor and a wonderful massage therapist keeping a close eye on me and I am feeling confident.  I am so happy to be exiting such a dark time in my life.  Thank you Lord.
This week on Pause Dream Enjoy's 52 tags in 2012, we have a zoo theme.  I think this zebra is so cute.  She came from Create A Critter.  I am enjoying journaling on the back of each one about the events that happened in my life the week prior.  They are already interesting to look back on.  Well I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. 
Susan
