Card for Ella

Hello, It's Easter morning. What a Beautiful day. Getting ready to leave for church to celebrate our saviors resurrection.

Going to be having an Easter Dinner later on today at my daughters. 

Before I head out to church, thought I would share a card that my little Grand Daughter and I made for a little girl named Ella Grace, They recently found out that she has Cancer.
We don't know Ella. All we know Is that she is 8 years old and that she will be in treatment for 2 years and also that she would love some cards.  

So of course we had to make one for her. My Grand Daughter Scarlett choose the papers and most every thing on the card and I mostly put it together. We make a great crafty team. 

So here is the card that we made her.

 We hope that she likes It and that it makes her smile. Please say a prayer for Ella. Thank You for stopping by and I hope that you have a blessed Easter.

 Would Love for you to stop by again.

 Happy Easter

Choo-Choo! Baby's on the Way!

 Hi, Glad you could stop by. I can't get over that It's already March, February usually seems to drag on forever to me. But It seemed to fly by this time. The weather right now seems like a yo-yo. 
One day rain, next day freezing and snow and the next in the 70s. 
But glad that soon the cold weather will be gone. 

I am going to be a Great - Great Aunt for the first time. Yeah, That does make me feel kind of old. But super Excited and so excited for my sister Tonda, She Is going to be a Great Grandma. What a blessing.

So today I want to share with you a Baby Card that I made for the new addition to the family.

 Had to use my phone to take the picture so didn't get a real good picture of It. This card was easy to make. But when I first started making It, I made the Train in red, I hated It! 

My little Great-Great Nephew's name will be Bo. I have always liked that name and think It's cute for a Girl or a Boy.

This Isn't a normal folded Card, It's like and envelop that has a slit in the back to close It. 

You can find this on the Paisley Cartridge under Cards/envelopes. 
The Train is from Everyday Paper Dolls Cartridge
BO - Cricut Craft Room Basics 
Tag- Sweet Treats Cartridge
The little puffs of smoke are actually little clouds. But I can't remember what Cartridge I got them from. (Shame on Me)!
The Baby Stamp is from a Cardz TV Stamp Set called (A Day at the Beach) and I embossed It with White Embossing Powder.

I popped the train up with Stampin Dimensionals and also popped up a section of the train and embossed it with the dots Embossing folder. 

That's It for my Card, Thanks for stopping by and have a Happy- Crafty Day.

The Sky's the Limit !!!

 Hello, Glad you could stop by. I just had to share with you my excitement.

 I had entered a Giveaway hosted by Shelley, Her blog is Shelley Bean. She had a giveaway celebrating her Birthday.

I thought how sweet of her to have a giveaway for her Birthday.
She was giving away the Stampin Up Stamp Set called The Sky's the limit and with It she was also including a finished card and Card Kits to make three other cards.

 Only a few days before entering the giveaway, I had been talking to my sister. She was telling me how she had gotten this Stamp Set and I told her that I had really wanted to get It and that I was kind of jealous of her.

 I had put on hold making any crafty purchases for the last several months because I was having health Issues and was waiting to see If I had colon cancer. I recently got the results back that It wasn't cancer. Praise God!!! I still have some problems and may have to have surgery but at least it's not cancer.

 Anyway, I won her Birthday Giveaway and I was so shocked and for me to think that It was to late to get the stamp set because you could only get It for a limited time and then to end up winning It.  Well I got a little emotional.

 I received It In the mail today and not only did she send the Stamp Set, Card and Kits to make three other cards. She also sent four envelopes and some of the designer series paper.

 How Sweet and kind of her. I just Love It and can't wait to play
with It.

I really enjoy Shelley's Blog. Love seeing her creations. If you would like to check out her blog here is a link.


 Again, Glad you could stop by. Have a Happy Crafty Day!

Valentine Hugs!

 Hello and Happy Valentines Day to You. So glad that you could stop by.
 Hope you are getting to spend time with the ones that you Love today. 
To me Valentines Day is more than just for Spouses and people who are dating.  It's a day to enjoy all the one's you love and for remembering your loved ones that have past on.

 I had plans to make my Grand Children Valentine Cards and was hoping to get time to make my Mom one as well. But between being in pain with some health Issues and having a severe cold and work. It just didn't happen.

 But I did help my little Grand Daughter make her Valentine Box for School. So thought I would share It with you all.

 She Loved how It turned out. Her favorite animal Is the Koala Bear. So we thought It would be fun to use this cutie from the Create a Critter 2 Cartridge.
We started with a large size Pop Tart Box. Covered in white cardstock.
Other Cartridges used-
Create a Critter 2 also used for the word HUGS
Other hearts- Cricut Craft Room Basics
Red Scallop Rectangle- Storybook Cartridge
Also used-
Red Glitter paper for the heart and Bow.
Dots Embossing Folder from Sizzix
Valentine Stamps from Michael's
Heart Border Punch
Pink and White Baker's Twine.

Well I better go. Gotta get ready for work. Again Happy Valentine's Day to you all. (Remember to let your Loved one's know that you Love them.)
Would Love for you to stop by again sometime. Happy Crafting!

A Cozy Christmas!

 Hello and thanks for stopping by. It's Christmas Day! Hope you are enjoying this wonderful day with your family. 

Wanted to share with you a little something I made my Mom for part of her Christmas present.

(click on picture to enlarge)

It started out going to be a card but decided to put it in a frame so that she could sit it out and enjoy it and continue to enjoy it years to come.

Placed a 2 inch circle on whisper white card stock for the moon and masked the bottom. I then sponged the sky with Soft Sky and Night of Navy Inks from Stampin Up.

Stamped the cabin with my new stamp set called A Cozy Christmas and then stamped the trees with another new stamp set called  Wonderland. Both from Stampin Up. I am Loving both of these stamp sets. So glad that I bought them.

I then added some stickles to the roof of the cabin and a little to the tree's. Added some yellow to the windows.I know you can't see it but I sprayed some glimmer mist to the snowy ground to make it sparkle a little and stamped a few snowflakes. 

I am so glad that I decided to put this in a frame.
I also thought I would go ahead a post some of the pictures I took of our Elf on a Shelf. His name is Ernie. This was the third year that he has visited us.

My Grandson Walker Loved seeing the Minion Bananas!

Walker called him Captain Ernie!

He was on a sled on the Tree with his hat stuffed in a Christmas Ball. The kids laughed at this.

I don't know If Ernie wants me sharing this private picture of him, He made his own comic strip magazine. Just glad he remembered to get the toilet paper.

I think he thought it was pretty funny to wrap himself up like a present.

Found him In the container that the bag of marshmallows were in.

  Ernie enjoyed hanging around seeing how good Walker and Scarlett was being.

And on the last day that Ernie was with us. We found him sitting In the tree. Showing us what the
true meaning of Christmas is.

 Ernie usually comes to visit us around 12 days till Christmas. Unfortunately I didn't get a picture every day. Santa came by last night and picked him up.  The kids are already missing him.  Wonder what silly things he will do on his next visit.

 Hope you enjoyed seeing my gift for my Mom and seeing some silly pictures of Ernie. Would Love for you to come by again.

 Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you!

 Happy Birthday Jesus!

Crochet Santa Ornaments and Winner!

 Hello, Hope you are doing good and thanks for stopping. This past Saturday I was in In the Santa Baby Blog Hop. I had so much fun making my projects.

My Grandchildren took the Santa and Mrs. Clause Treat Boxes today to their Christmas Parties. Hoping the teacher's and helpers like their little gifts.

If you hopped along on the blog hop, you know that I had my own little giveaway. I will be posting the winner at the end of this post.

But first I want to thank everyone for their nice comments and want to welcome my new followers.

Also I would like to share a couple of Santa Ornaments I crocheted last night to give to my Grand Children. I will be putting them in their Advent Calendars. They will be getting them later tonight. Want to give them to them now so they can put them on their tree and enjoy them.

These little Santa Ornaments worked up really fast. Thought they turned out pretty cute. I like making them something to have as a keepsake. Last year I made them snowflakes. The Santa's were a lot easier than the snowflakes that's for sure.

And now It's time to announce the winner of the Santa Baby Blog Hop.

I had the True Random Generator pick the winner and the Winner Is....................
