Plantin' Schoolbook, Home Décor / Birthday card for boy!

I cannot believe my oldest son is 12!! This doesn't leave much room for cutesy little things anymore, so for his birthday I was in a crunch. How to make a card using the cricut and still have him like it? Well, I do work best under pressure and in about an hour (with many interruptions), I was able to come up with this card. It's called a tri-fold card, and the ladies at have a wonderful tutorial on it. The right paper can make all the difference! I used Plantin Schoolbook for the cityscape, My community for the clock (striking 12!!) and Home Décor for the star. He liked it, and I was happy :)


  1. Great job! 12 year olds, especially boys are hard to come with something. You did great and I bet thatds of yours loved it,

  2. Great card it was really cool and the colors fit so nice. I'm glad your son loved it. tfs

Hope Frame with Bible Verse

I was inspired to write this Bible verse to go along with this picture frame and Hope banner. It can be found in Psalm 31: 24, and it reads: "Be strong and take heart all you who hope in the Lord." Suffering from any type of cancer is devastating, and the words of David in what is one of the most beautiful books of the  Old Testament can really shed some light into a relationship in which the only comfort that really made a difference was the one promised by our very maker. If you, or someone you know is suffering from this horrible disease, my hope is that you find comfort not only in your surroundings and those you know, but also in the love of our God, just as David did in the darkest moments of his life.
For this project I used the Cricut to make the banner and flowers. I hand-painted the Bible verse and background with watercolors, color pencils, and ink. TFL!
I'll also be sharing this over at Link up for Pink.

OMG Moment

So have you ever had one? You know, an OMG moment? I end that phrase with "gosh" by the way. And yes, we all have OMG moments, and for that occasion, here's a card! Interpret as you wish. I'd like to enter it into Crafty Creations Challenge #111- In Stitches, and into Scrappy Moms  Smiley Cards challenge. TFL!

Hope Banner for October Breast Cancer Awareness

I made this banner for Breast Cancer Awareness in the month of October using several Cricut cuts, embellishments, the Cuttlebug and the Stand and Salute cart for the ribbon. I'll be entering this project to Link Up for Pink.
