Good Moms

I'm so happy to share the sign that I just finished for myself.  I decide to make a sign for me!  I'm always making for everyone else that I never take time to make something nice for me.  I was on the Silhouette store the other day and saw this and had to have it!  It seems like this was so true the first 3 weeks of the month.  I was busy baking like crazy for the kids swim meet one weekend.  I got honey spilled all over the floor so it was sticky for sure.  The kitchen was a mess for sure and the laundry piles were really bad cause I got the flu bug in between it all.  But the kids were so Happy!!!  Ok well minus when Mom got sick and they had to take puppy out more and help Dad around the house!

Cards from this week

I had some time this week to make lots of cards.  I post a couple cards earlier today that I made for a friend but wanted to post the rest of them.  She is making cards pack for her FRG's Make it, Bake it, or Fake it Auction.  So I wanted to be sure to help her out.  Here are the rest of the cards I made for it.

These cards were all made using stamps and dies from My Creative time!

The next 2 cards I made was from a Unity Stamp.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope everyone has a great weekend!!

Live Each Day

I'm so happy how my cards turned out with the Unity Live Each Day sentiment stamp. 
My friend's FRG is having a Make It, Bake It, or Fake It Auction next week and
 I wanted to help her out. 
The star embossing folder and the MCT Stitched Star Dies were great to go along with this card.

Thank You for Your Service

Happy Memorial Day!
I have had this stamp Unity Thank You for your Service for awhile now and have been wanting to use it.  So after seeing all the cool cards on the Operation Write Home Blog Hop over the weekend.  I decide that I would make a card with my stamp set finally for my hubby.  I used a sketch from a challenge on the Operation Write Home Blog for their Sketch Challenge #226. 
Here is the sketch I went by.
Thanks for stopping by to look!

Unity be inspired Challenge

It feels so good to be posting and making things again!  I have decide know matter how tired or how busy we have been I'm going to take time to craft from no on.  I have so missed spending time in my craft room.  Today I made a few cards cause I have a list that I need to make to go along with my end of the year gifts.  
This card is for one of the teacher that is retiring this year.  She is always great to make sure to get me pictures for the yearbook.  I will miss her help next year.
I will be entering this card into the Unity be inspired challenge.
You need to use these colors and this sketch for the card.

Thanks for stopping by!

You are 100% Awesome!

I did alot of crafting over the weekend!!  I'm so excited to share my projects with you but I will have to wait a few weeks to do it.  Since most of them are gifts for my kids teachers and staff members at school end of the year gifts.  My plan is to get the post ready so the moment they have been given out I can hit publish for you all to see.  
I do have a card that I made this weekend to share with you.  I made it to enter in a Challenge over at My Creative Time for Designer Challenge Color Palette.

Guest Designer for My Creative Time

 Hello My Crafty Friends! 
This is a very exciting day that I have been waiting for all year!!  Today I'm a Guest Designer for 
My Creative Time!  I love using MCT Stamps and Dies!!  A friend introduced me to the stamps a couple of years ago and then my collection started from there. 

I made a couple of little projects for today to using Bulid A Pretty Flower.
I also used a few other stamp sets and dies and will list them under the pictures.

This is a little K cup holder that I decorated for a little gift to a friend.
I cut out a MCT Stitched Doily Die and a tag from MCT Tag Die and stamped all the pretty flowers from  Bulid A Pretty Flower.   Then added a little tag from MCT Teeny Tag Layering Dies and stamp it with a It's Your Day from MCT Teeny Tag Holidays.  I'm so happy with the way it turned out and love the colors together too!

I decided well everyone loves chocolate too!  I think one of my favorite dies from MCT Treat Slider Box Die!!  I cut out the treat box and the treat wrappers on kraft cardstock.  Then used Bulid A Pretty Flower on the treat box and wrappers.  Last I added a little MCT Teeny Tag Layering Dies  and stamp it with Sweet Friend from Teeny Tag Greetings Stamp Set.

I hope you enjoyed my projects from today.

 I also wanted to thank Miss Emma for the opportunity to be a Guest Designer!
Hope Everyone has a nice holiday weekend too!

Hello Crafty Friends

Hello to all my Crafty Friends!!
It's been awhile since I have posted but I have been crafting here and there.  It just has been very busy around my house between work, finishing up the yearbook for the kids school, and taking the kids to all their busy activities. 

I thought since it's been awhile since I posted anything that I would post a few random things I made over the last few months.  

My friend's birthday was back in February and she is a Big Seahawk fan.   So I saw this online and had to make it for her.
I made this baby afghan for a baby gift for my husband's supervision.  They just had a little girl!!
I love how soft this yarn was I used for the afghan!

 I made this cute TGIF sign for the kids to send to Grandma for Mother's Day! 

A few weeks ago the kids had a Home Swim Meet so us parents organized some raffle basket for the concession stand we had.  I was in charge of fixing the baskets!  I made some cute little tags for each basket.   One of the baskets was a homemade basket so I put some cards in it that I had made along with the TGIF sign too.  I had so much fun making the baskets up!!

Ok I hope now that school year is winding down and summer is on the way that I will have more time to craft and get things posted.
