Merry Christmas Eve!

Merry Christmas Eve! Hey everybody! Long time no post! Life has been VERY busy as I'm sure it has for everybody! I have been making lots of cards and I wanted to share some of those today.
These are some cards that I made some of my close friends, we called ourselves the Football Mommas back in football, but since we are starting basketball, we can call ourselves the Basketball Mommas! :)
We wanted to get together and make Christmas cards this year, but life was too busy and we didn't get around to doing it. So I made them each a card and I made them some tags too. Here are all of the cards together. I used my American Crafts Christmas paper that I won last year. I love that stuff, the colors are so pretty! And here they are by themselves. I made them like a quilt-y pattern (I'm sure that's not a word), and I thought it fit good with the scripture, "For unto us a child is born, unto us a Son is given. Isaiah 9:6" And I stitched on each one and added some of my twine from The Twinery. LOVE that stuff! And here are the tags. I made them 10 each.I used several different Christmas stamps on all of these. I realized I have Tons of Christmas stamps...and that make it hard for me to choose which ones I want to use. So I just used all of them! :)
I made some more cards very similar to these for my MIL to give out, but I skipped the stitching and twine, I was running out of time. :)

Well that's all for today! I hope you all have a VERY Blessed Christmas Eve! :)

Everything But The Kitchen Sink Challenge # 28- Textures

Good morning! It's time for another EBTKS challenge! I had a really fun time with this project! Ann used this picture of this fuzzy blanket and pillow as her inspiration. So we were to make a card with textures. My first thought was a fuzzy baby blanket. So I figured since the blanket and pillow were blue, I went with a boy theme. Here is my baby boy card. I used left-overs from Chace's blanket I made him last year. It's SO soft! I want to make one for a baby girl now! :)Our sponsor this time is LimeLight papercrafts! And here is the package up for grabs to the winner.So stop by the EBTKS blog for all the details and check out all the other DT's cards.

Have a Blessed day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hey! Happy Thanksgiving! I just wanted to post some of my Thanksgiving cards that I sent out this year. We had a great day today with family! I'm full, but yet I keep wanting to eat more! :) I will be sleeping in tomorrow, as I DO NOT do the Black Friday! I would rather sleep and we had a cold front come in tonight, so it's going to be COLD! :)

I hope ya'll had a Blessed day! :)

Thank You Card

Hey everybody! Here is another Thank You card that wasn't accepted. It was the first time I have ever used the Butterfly dies and I think the last! :( Not because I don't love them, but I forget that I have them or I get new stuff and I want to use it! I need to break out all my "older" stuff and use it more!
Look how pretty those butterflies are! :)

Well that's it for today! I need to get stuff ready for Thanksgiving tomorrow! :)
Have a Blessed day!

Happy Birthday Baseball Boys!

Well hello! I am here today with some Birthday cards I made for Chace's friends months ago! :) The friends were actually on his baseball team at the time, so I figured I should make them in their "real" uniforms! So here they are in the orange, black, and white uniforms! :) (This is before I got my Copics, so I used colored pencils.) Here is a close-up of the grass! The Practicing Creativity stamp, Just Dandy" worked great for this!

Have a Blessed day!

Thank You So Much Card

Hey everybody! I'm here today to show some another card that I submitted and wasn't accepted. I really like how it turned out, very simple! And I love that I can still use it if it doesn't get accepted. I haven't submitted anything in several month's. Just taking a little break. But maybe I should send out or give away ALL of my "reject" cards before I submit again?! Lets see if I can do it! :) I guess I could give away some as Christmas gifts too! :) I need to go through all of them. I'm getting lazy about not posting the supplies. So if you have a question about something, just ask! :)

Have a Blessed day!

Sweet Baby Card & Custom made ribbon

Hey everybody! I wanted to show you a card that I made with inspiration for Kristina Werner. I loved her card and I love this one! There is just something about those different color onesies, that I LOVE! :)And look at this ribbon. I custom made it to match the onesies. It was a satin white ribbon and I just used my Copics to make stripes. I have to do this again! :) Here are the colors I used!
Supplies: Cardstock-(PTI) Sweet Blush, White, Melon Berry; Stamps- (PTI) Mega Mixed Messages, (Dulces Ideas) Welcome Baby; Ink- (Memento) Tuxedo Black, Ribbon- (Offray) White satin; Other- Copics
Well I am going to spend the day with some of the Momma's from Chace's football team today. We are going over to one of the ladies houses to make breakfast burritos and make a slide show of the boys for their banquet this Friday! We have all became really close and because we don't see each other almost everyday at football practice anymore, so we all decided to get together every week for lunch or craft (I can't wait for that)! I think we might make Christmas cards soon! I need to get that together! :) We had lunch the week before last and we were in the restaurant for almost 4 hours! Most of us are SAHM, so we are able to get together while the kids are in school. We all laugh til it hurts! :)

Have a Blessed day!

Thanks for everything card

Hey everybody! I wanted to share a card I made for a PC publication that didn't get accepted. I used the Mehndi Medallions for Wplus9 Design Studio. I really love these stamps and I love this color combo! :) Here is a close-up of those Beautiful stamps!
I have still been dealing with my throat. I am still taking the antibiotics the Dr. prescribed, but still having issues. The thought comes in my mind, will it ever go away, but I have to keep believing in the healing! I'm getting very frustrated and starting to wonder if it has anything to do with the shot I received from the dentist that day, like damage to the nerves or something! A million ideas have went through my head,of what it could be, but I still have no answers!
I am still praying for a complete healing in Jesus name and ask if you would continue to pray to. Thanks so much for praying so long already!

Have a Blessed day!
