CTO Challenge # 37

Hello Everyone,

I just have a quick card I made for Halloween. It nothing fancy by far. I realized at 1: 30 am on sunday morning that I had forgot to make my card for the CTO Challenge. So I hurry up an put this card together, literally in 5 minutes. So sorry for this crappy card and I will post you some pictures of my school halloween contest. The teacher had to dress up and it was fun.  Th second grade teachers' dressed up as a school of fish. We were so cute!! But the kindergarden  teachers' dressed up like all the character in the Strawberry Shortcake books and stole the show. Congratulation Ladies!!  There is always next year.
(LOL)

Until Next Time ....

Guest Designer at Birthday Sundaes

Hello Everyone,

I know it has been a few weeks since my last post but my life is really crazy right now. I just had a birthday last weekend and I am still celebrating. Today, I have a tall card that I made as a guest designer for Birthday Sundaes. This was the first time I ever made a card this size and also my first time to attempt coloring a digital stamp. I am not sure if I will continue playing around with digital stamps. I really didn't like how this came out but at least I can say I tried. I decided to use my school color (LSU). I am  so flattered to be featured on Birthday Sundaes and hope you  guys stop by and join in their challenge.  So until next time.....

MAG Challenge






Hello Everyone,

I am so sorry that I am late with my post. I realized today as I was packing to leave school, that I forgot to post my last project for the MAG Challenge by the Page . Then when I sat down to post it, I quickly found out that my internet was having issues. So I figured better late then never.  I cant believe that the time pasted by so fast and my term with MAG is over. I really wish I had time to continue on but right now teaching and my family takes up most of the time in my day. I have been sick that I have not found the time to get in my craft room.  But life has other things in mind.  Well enough about that. Today's challenge comes from the Sentimental cartridge.  I used the card base to create this card. It is nothing fancy but I still like it. So feel free to join in on this week challenge.  Remember that you can only use the die cuts from the specified page. But don't worry,  you are allowed to use any other types embellishments just as long as they are not from any other cricut cartridges.  I hope you decide to join in on this week's challenge and apply for the design team too. So until next time....

MAG Challenge by the Page #42


Hello Everyone, 
 Today I have a project that I designed for  MAG Challenge by the Page.  The project for today came from the Once Upon A Princess Cricut cartridge page 66. I used the diamond to create my card base. I used ribbon to tie them together instead of welding it with mu gypsy. I think it adds a little character to the card. It is a little on the simple side but  I still think it is  cute. I didn't put a sentiment on the card because I am not sure who I am going to give it to.  I will just have to add it later. Well I really hope you enjoy it and decide to join in on this weeks MAG Challenge by the Page. Remember that you can only use the die cuts from the specified page. But don't worry,  you are allowed to use any other types embellishments just as long as they are not from any other cricut cartridges.  I hope you decide to join in on this week's challenge because you are always invited. So until next time....

Joy!!


Hello Everyone,

I have quick card that I made using my scraps from my last project. This card really said alot to me after the awesome Word, I received Sunday from pastor Joel Stockstill. He taught about how to keep a pure heart. He explained to us that "Happiness is a feeling". Happiness was never one of  God's  promises but "JOY" is something totally different.  God promised us unspeakable joy. Joy is a gift from God were as happiness is an emotion. Joy is something that lives with in us. It a gift from God that no one can take away from you.  So I thought how perfect this was for this card, to remind me to stop operating off of emotion and start walking with in the gifts that God gave me.  So until next time....
