Wagon full of wishes...............

This week project for The Cutting Cafe was definitely a challenge for me.  Regina did an outstanding job (as usual) on this cute little wagon.  It's not near as cute as hers but is a ldifferent idea.  That is the joy of crafting, we all have our own ideas.  I decided to use my Silhouette (again ;o)) and make a card out of the wagon cutting files. 

This LITTLE RED WAGON BOX template - cutting file features the following: 1 wagon - approx. 3.5 in width by 2 inches high 3 boxes - in small, medium and large size 22 sentiments Several other items to decorate the wagon The file com...

Happy Birthday..........

Well it's that time of year again when alot of our family are having birthdays.  It's hard for me to believe, but my youngest son turns 17 next month.  Just doesn't seem possible.  Sometimes I tell my self  "Whoooohoooo, I'll have more room in the house, less laundry to wash, less dishes to clean, etc."  But I mostly tell myself,  "How will I handle missing my kids that I love so much and have had at home every day since they were born?"  Guess every mom goes through this so called "Empty Nest."

This weeks project for The Cutting Cafe is done using

This POSTAGE STAMP SHAPED CARD template - cutting file features the following:
1 postage stamp shaped card - approx. 4 by 4.5 inches. (with a top layer)
2 mini postage stamps (photo not shown below)
7 other mini postage stamp images (approx. .835 by 1 inch)
The file comes in the following formats: PDF, SVG, MTC, WPC and JPEG
(here are a few images from this set)

This stamp/cutting file is so versital and can be used for just about any event.  Since I have so manyfamily and friends birthday's coming up, I thought I would make it into a birthday card.

With being so busy with everything, the silhouette makes it so easy to create quick and easy projects.  Again, I used the print and cut feature and added some sparkle to the birthday hat.  Hope you enjoy!

Spring Showers Bring May Flowers.....

We are having spring like weather today.  It's beautiful, but enjoy it while it's here, because it will change. The weather here has been so confusing.  One day freezing "coat" weather, the next day warm "flip flop" weather.  It's no wonder everyone is sick with something.  Showers sound wonderful.   We have been going through a three year drought here in Oklahoma so we desperatley need the rain!!!!!!!!!

This set from The Cutting Cafe' brings lots of hope of what's to come.....SPRING!!!  One Spring Day printable stamp set has 90 plus images.  Some are black and white and some are in color. 

Here is a sneek of the One Spring Day~Printable Stamp set

One spring day 2


For this card I used my Silhouette (again).  I colored everything in Silhouette Studio and used the print and cut feature.  I backed the card with black cardstock and added a black bow.  For the striped background I used a digital paper you can find here.  I layered the flowers to see some of the outline.
