"Thanks so much" Scene....

Hello and Happy Friday everyone! I know it's been a really
looooong time since I've posted and for that I'm sorry! I haven't
been able to view your blogs either... which I'm really sad about.
Life has been crazy for me and I thought I would tell you WHY!!!
 
Okay... here it goes.....
I've been in the process of selling my home & my Business
I'm very sad about the business part, because I LOVE my store!
But.... My husband has started to have more health issues
and I can't run a business and take care of him. So, we
decided it was time to say goodbye to the store...
 
Since, starting all of this... I found a new home! YAY US! But...
I haven't found a buyer yet on the store.... Which has
truly surprised me, since I'm really asking a low, low price for
the business and how it is basically a turn key operation.....
anyway... I will be away for awhile as I try to pack up
my house & dare I say it... Close the Store! UGH! That was painful....
I have tons, and tons to do and be ready to leave by Oct.
 
I hope to return to blog land and challenges and crafting
as soon as I get settled in my new venture.... So....
 
This is NOT GOODBYE!!! It's just a break....
I promise to be back soon and visit all of you....
Now.... I still may pop in on some of those hops you
all are apart of.... cuz I like FREE Stuff... I mean.. really...
Who Doesn't??? :o) But that may be it... If I'm lucky of course...
 
I've been looking around my craft room since I got
home from work.. and I can tell ya... I don't look forward to packing
this stuff up... especially knowing I can't craft until I
get it all unpacked again in the new place... But it
needs to be done....
 
So... I'm gonna leave you with a card I created
for a friend of mine... She asks me ever year to
make her some Lamb/Sheep Thank You cards
for the people who buy her children' animals
at our county fair... :o)
 
 
As you can tell... I used Miss Kate Cuttables (Lamb)
Sun, Flowers, Fence, Grass  - Silhouette Store
Sentiment, Tags - My Craft Spot
Ribbon, Ink, Card stock - Stampin' Up
Digital Paper - Fancy Pants (Wonderful Day)
Baker's Pink Twine
 
 Thanks for stopping by!
I look forward to "Reading" all of your
wonderful stories and "seeing" your amazing creations
very, very, soon... and as always...
HAVE AN AWESOME DAY!!!

Pioneer Days...

Hello and Happy Saturday Everyone! It's that time of
year were it's super crazy busy in my neck of the woods...
Utah celebrates it's birthday which means everyone here
celebrates too!
Lots of visitors come to town and spend their
money (that's the best part) ;)
 
And of course Celebrate Utah becoming a state! HAHA!
We always have a schedule of events
for our celebration and today is the Parade and
lots of vendors at the park and shopping throughout
town... It certainly helps all the businesses out! :O)
Followed by some other events and the day
ends with a beautiful Fireworks display! :O)
 
During all of this madness I realized I had to take a minute
and create something... Do you know why? Well...
I'll tell ya why.... My son's birthday is tomorrow and I
always have time to make something for one of my boys!
The day that I don't have time means I got a problem!
 
So the other night when I was exhausted... I thought for a minute
on what my son likes.... I always try to make them a card that
represents them in some way... Last year I made him a cool
record card with a bass & amp (Click Here to see that Card)
and this year, I created this:
 
 
My son LOVES Bacon! I mean he really, really LOVES it!
So when I saw this cut over at SVG Cutting Files
I knew I had to have it!
I know it will put a smile on his face....
Card stock - SU
Digital Designer Paper - Carta Bella
Bacon & Shape Card - SVG Cutting Files
Balloons - Silhouette Store
Googlie Eyes - My Stash

 
And here's the inside sentiment....
I think it'll make him laugh! :O)
 
Any who... that's about all I have for today...
I've got a full day of work ahead of me
So, Happy Pioneer Day and thanks so
much for stopping by!
 
Have an AWESOME DAY!!

Print N Cut Get Well...

Hello and Happy Tuesday Everyone! So Sorry I've Been MIA
Again! Work has been crazy and my home life has been too!
So much going on and no time for anything really! :o)
So, before I get back to some other things that I'm
trying to do I thought I would post another card for ya.
Now... I've had nooooo time for crafting....
So this is another card I made awhile ago
that I thought I would share today! :O)
 
 
This is another card I had made for my MIL
awhile ago.... She just asked me again if
I could make her 36 cards! UGH!
For some reason.... I can't say NO to her! :O)
She's not in a hurry for the cards so at
least I'll have time to make them! :O)
 
Well... That's all I really have time for!
Thanks so much for stopping in to
see me! I really appreciate it! :O)
 
Have an AWESOME DAY!!!

Hello and Happy Tuesday! Can you believe it's July 1st Already?
I know I can't! You do realize, this means Christmas is just around the corner! HA
 
As you can tell by my post, today is a New Challenge
over at Silhouette Challenges... Where we like you to
create wonderful projects using your Silhouette Machine!
 
As many of you know... I LOVE the Print N Cut
feature on the Silhouette... It's super easy to use
and you can create a project in a short period of time (sometimes)
Of course this depends on how much time you want to
spend on a project! :o)
 
And with School being just a little over a month away...
I thought I would create a Back to School Card
for my sons Teacher!
 
 
EVERYTHING is made with the Print N Cut Feature
except for the Black CS which is Stampin' Up!
 
This took me 5 minutes to make... and
another 5 minutes to put together! And
I LOVE how it turned out! :o)
 
The Digital Paper, Banners, Red Ruler Strip, Black & White
Apple strip is Lori Whitlock (School Days) 
Cup w/ Scissors, pencils, Ruler is Shery K Designs (School)
 
With a HUGE HEAVY HEART
I want to announce, this is my last
Challenge as a Designer on the Silhouette
Challenges DT! I appreciate the opportunity
to be apart of a wonderful DT and share and inspire
all of you with our challenges! Nana & the Whole
team are amazing Ladies and very talented.... and I
can't THANK them enough for letting me be apart
of it for the past 1 1/2 yrs. I will miss them all dearly...
 
 I have several important things coming up
within the next few months and I need to keep
my focus on what's important to me & my Family
at this time.... I will share what's going on in
a later post with my wonderful bloggers...
But for now...
 
Head on over to see what the DT has created for
