Die Cuttin Diva's Color challange #79

Here is my card for this color challenge. I embossed the purple white core card stock then sanded it. I then used yellow ink on top of the areas I sanded. I cut the pumpkin with the Cuttlebug Pumpkin Spice die cut and embossing set. I hope you enjoy the card.

You're my cup of tea card

I had the best day with my mother Saturday. It is so nice having her around to spend time with. She took me out and I had my very first pedicure. I sure did not know what I was missing all these years. I can understand how some people can get addicted to it.  For me it was a really great experience but I am pretty frugal on some things so I don't see doing it that much. Don't get me wrong the whole experience was great but I get free foot massages at home. LOL
I made this card with the Better Together Imagine Cartridge and the swirls cuddlebug embossing folder. I distressed the edges of the paper with the Tim Holtz distress ink.

Congrats card

You ever make a card then tear it apart and start all over again? This is one of them. I don't knwo why I could not get this card the way I wanted until i found the tak bubble punch to put the words in. It was one of the punches I got at TJ Maxx for $2.99.  I used the Imagine more cartridge for the chicken.  The paper is from Creative Memories. I them used a gel pen for stitches and gems to add a little bling to the country theme. hope you have a blessed weekend!

One of my favorite layouts in my sons baby book.

I love these pages. I used Creative Memories baby paper and matching stickers. I am so behind on his scrapbook. He is now 20 years old and I am barely started with his book. Hope you enjoy the layout!

Sending Love

Hi all! I have stocked up on Cricut Imagine cartridges because the Cricut website has dropped their prices on the Imagine cartridges to $19.99. I have a feeling they won't be making many more of them since they are dropping prices like that which makes me sad. I love my Imagine and what it can do with it. I have been hearing alot about the Cameo Silhouette but not sure I want to invest in another big ticket item at this time. I will wait until more people switch to see what their opinions are after using it for a good while. If you want to let me know what you think about your Silhouette if you have one please leave a comment.

For this card I used the Better together Cricut Imagine Cartridge. I love the images in this cartridge. I used the Martha  Stewart Ring punch for the corners of the paper.

Since my mother moved in we are finding we need more craft storage space to allow both of us to use the space effectivly. I also want her to feel at home in the craft room. I found a six section wire rack system at ALDI's for $16.99. I bought two sets and combined them using the extra pieces to make shelves. I used plastic ties to put the shelves in and it works great. I am moving some of my stuff there to give her drawer space and purchasing baskets to put on the shelves of this system for her material. I still have a lot of work to do to get the room the way we need it and to make it work for both of us. Wish me luck!

I am absolutely loving having my mother her with us. It is so nice to come home and see her. To have her give me hugs. I really did not realize how badly I missed my family.

Grateful Bag

I made this with the Cricut Imagine and the Imagine More Cards cartridge. I took out the embedded colors so that I could use my own cardstock paper. The flowers alont the front are from the Imagine More cartridge. It is really simple and fast. I have had some luck finding Studio G stamps on sale for 24 cents. Love it. The Grateful stamp was a thanksgiving stamp at Walmart. If you wait until the day after each holiday you can usually get the holiday stamps for around 24 cents. I bought a ton of them for Christmas last year on clearance. I can't wait to start using them for my Christmas cards his year.
