Goodbye 2012

Well, I started this post and it self deleted, so perhaps it wasn't ment for me share the original post. So, here I go one more time, I know that I haven't been a very good blogger in a while, but for a moment, I was allowing life to run me, instead of me running my life. I plan to make some very big changes this year and one of them is to get back to blogging, it's what makes me happy. I'm happy to see the year end and excited to see what 2013 brings and what I can contribute.

Happy New Years to my friends .....

Black and White Birthday Card

Hello and Good Morning Blogger friends .... Here's a little card I made for a friends birthday. I used my cuttlebug. A friend of mine made one of these cards a few years ago, and I thought I would try and remake it. My friend Mona would have us girls over and we would go to our favorite stamp store, get something to eat and then head back to her house and start scraping! It was so much fun ...  

I hope my friend Darlene enjoyed this card .. well short post today, off to work I go ... Thanks for stoping by and see ya on my next post

Hello bloger friends (Hope I still have some left ... LOL)
I've been gone from blogging for a while, I've been so busy with school and working not to mention feeling a little down. But things are on the rise in a positive way and I'm back!

School has been stressing me out, they cancelled out summer session and it's putting me behind in graduating. So that really threw me off. And honestly, I was having a pitty party and feeling sorry for myself.

I've also been trying to work as much as I can, it's hard working part time and trying to make it... but by the grace of God, I always do.

I'm going to start creating once again, I found that when I don't create and express myself, I fall into a funk and lose my Mojo! I know we have all lost our Mojo at one time or another.

I love reading all my bloggy friends blogs, they help to keep me going. I've been lazy not to mention it's been so hot that I don't want to do anything. I made a crad for a friend of mine and hope to post it in the morning or later in the evening tomorrow night, Thanks for stopping by and the continues support!

Baby Boy Shower Favors

Hello Blogger friends .... so this isn't a very good picture, but this is the baby shower favor that I made, they match the invite below. I used the same little train and stamped a Thank you. I added a little bag of light blue and dark blue little chocolate ball candies on the inside. I think they came out pretty cute.

Well another short post, it's late and I'm working and have work stuffs to finish. Thanks for stopping by :)

It's a Boy

Hello there! it's been so long since I have posted to my blog! it's funny how time gets away from you, at times I feel like life is running me instead of me running my life! School has started and i'm taking three classes and it's wearing me out! I'm up all night trying to study, working full time and trying to be a good mother all at the same time, so my blogging has gotten away from me. It's hard to try and balance everything out. you'd think as old as I am, that I would have this all figured out .... but NOOOOO

Well needless to say, I was able to whip out this little beauty for a friends baby shower. I feel like something is missing, but i didn't want to over do the card. I think it came out pretty cute. I used Coco brown bazzill paper, some designer paper from Joanns, cream ribbon and some blue dots. I used my computer for the "its a boy", I couldn't find any cute stamps, so I did the next best thing and made it myself. I used my nesties die cutes and the stamp is from great impressions. I also used some glitter around the die cuts and used my copics to color the train. hope you enjoy!

Thanks for stopping by, until I post again! Have a great day!

Hello Sunflower

Hello blogger friends, I've been working on some cards for friends not to mention Thank You notes for my niece, but the good thing is that I have a few weeks to get those done. I can't remember if I posted this card or not, so if I did, I'm sorry for the repeat, if not, then i hope you enjoy!

A friend bought me this stamp, she called it a Sunflower, however it looks more like a over sized Daisy to me. I used some white puff stuff on the vase and of coursed used my copics. I also used my new sewing thingy that I bought off of HSN. Man, really love that show but it seems like they only have the scrapbooking stuffs on in the middle of the night .....

Well I'm getting ready to start school again, it seems like I have been going forever, but I have to say I do enjoy it. I'm taking three class this semester, I was going to try and go for four classes, but it wouldn't work with my overnight work schedule. Oh well, I'll be busy enough with the three classes.

Well Hope you all are having a fantastic start to the new year, I can't complain, after all were only 10 days in .... this is going to be a great year, I can feel it .... I'm sure there will be a few bumps in the road, but I'm up for the challenge!

Thanks for stopping by and until I post again! have a blessed day :)

Baby Shower Invites

Wow, looky me, two post back to back! LOL, I have been so busy working that I lost time making cards, not to mention I have been very lazy. So I made the following cards for my sister to choose from for her daughter's baby shower. I love this cute little lamb, I think it's just right, I used my nesties and my cricut Sugar and Spice to make the lamb. I think it came out pretty cute.

 This little card was the second one I made, I used my Sugar and Spice cricut again and made the little bib and added some bling, I thought this one was cute too ....
 The one below was a bit more time consuming, this is the one my sister picked, we did some mass producing ... I cut out all the pieces one day and them my sister stopped by for 7 hours and we put them all together. I used my classic circle Nesties and I think the Sugar and Spice cricut, but I can't be sure. Anywho, we made 30 of them and now I'm going to start working on the Thank You notes so my niece can send them out right away. I have some time, her shower is in a few weeks ....

Well until I post again, thanks for stopping by!

Christmas Cards

Well i'm a bit late, but Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!! Gosh, I can't believe that it's 2012 already, can't be sure what happened to 2011, but I think it was good to me ... hehe, hoping 2012 is even better.

I'm late on posting the cards I sent out this year ... the one below is a very simple card, but cute. I used my nestis and a holly punch and some red and white twine .... I found the little red glittery things at Michales, I loved them so much, I bought all the colors they had ...

 This little card is made from a napkin, yes a napkin, I peeled off all the layers until I got to the printed picture and then sprayed some sticky stuffs on white card stock and blam, instant card ... so easy, but the fumes give me a head ache ..... LOL once the napkin dried, I used my nesties and cut out the tree and placed it on green card stock....
Well, a short post today, but thanks for stopping by! I'm working on some Baby shower cards for my niece, she's due next month, i'm so very excited, i'm going to be her Nina ... finally I get to be a Nina (godmother) ....I hope they decide on a name soon, it changes every day but I'm going to call her Emmy :)

Until my next post, thanks again for stopping by :)
