Sports Themed Baby Shower Favors

I made these favor bags for my friend Ashley's baby shower, that is coming up on May 10th.  She is having a little boy - named Barrett.  She has decided to go all boy with a sports themed nursery - so we decided to keep that theme going all the way through and do a sports themed baby shower.  I made the 2-5-7-10 boxes that I found on splitcoast stampers.  They were fairly easy to make & just as easy to decorate. 

I used the Sports Mania Cricut cartridge and cut out the footballs at 1 3/4" to use as closure for the bag - matchbox style.  I cut the letters out using the Don Juan cartridge at 3/4".  I wrapped the box with football ribbon I found at Michael's - a few weeks ago during their 60% off sale!  I punched the flap of the box with a border punch (the only one I have without flowers and such).  I am working on the diaper cake now as well as altering some wooden letters to spell out Barrett, with sports decals on them.  I will post pics as soon as I complete those.  Thanks for looking.

Happy Mother's Day

Behind Christmas and Thanksgiving, Mother's Day is one of my favorite holidays!  I just always remember my mother always taking time out to do whatever she needed to do and then some, often all by herself.  She taught so much about life & love and I owe her the world!  Now that I am married, I have a mother-in-law who loves me dearly - for which I am eternally grateful!  I have made my Mother's Day cards this year some members of my family.  I appreciate your feedback & comments as they help me grow!

I made this one for my sister:

Happy Birthday Vikki!

I love love love making cards personally for my family & friends.  It just opens up such an opportnity to not only tell them that you are thinking of them - but the handmade card also shows that you care.  One this card I used my cuttlebug, ribbon, nesties & bling.  I love the look of these colors together, I had some left over black & white paper from doing my wedding album and it added a nice touch of class to the card.  The outside of the card says:  We can talk, we can trust, we can depend on each other.  The inside of the card says: and we do!  Vikki we are so happy to be celebrating you on your birthday!  We love you girl!

This by far has been one of my favorite cards!  Thanks for looking!!

Wishing everyone a very Happy Easter!  I am working at the hospital this weekend - I came home from work yesterday to my 'Just for You' paintcan!  I was so amazed at all that I got.  My partner went above and beyond!  The paintcan is absolutely beautiful!

Just For You Paint Can

Yes, I did!  I joined another paint can swap over on the cricut message board!  I am a paint can addict.  They are so much fun to decorate & fill!  I have been in a few swaps with my partner before so I new a lot about her, but did get the chance to learn so much more about her.  She loves the color sage & I decorated the can in this beautiful K & Co paper and of course added some bling to it!  I hope she loves it!  I had so much fun doing it for her.  Her paint can to me is on it's way here.....once I have I will post pictures here!
