Just had to post today that my AUsome Auburn Tigers won the SEC Championship game yesterday!!! I am so proud of those boys, their coaches and families and all of those who make these things happen. What a great day when your dream becomes a reality. I know these young men have been working hard all year long to reach this goal and it's just an amazing time for them. Way to go guys!! Now, they are on their way to Glendale, AZ for the National Championship Game on Jan 6th against the Oregon Ducks. WAR EAGLE!!!

I'm working on some Christmas projects and hope to post some here very soon. Hope you're doing some fun stuff too :)

Hi there!!

Long time, no see! Well, I've been getting better (health wise) so I've been crafting again. I haven't been doing many cards. Actually, I've only done cards that I needed for birthdays and such. However, I do have a new addiction..............VINYL!!! I am so in love with this stuff and what I can do with it! I've been plastering vinyl on EVERYTHING! There's even a little bit on the hubby's car :) I've been using my trusty Cricut machine and cutting all sorts of fonts and shapes. So, I'm gonna share some of my creations with you. It's kind of a long post, so bear with me. Also, most of these pics were taken at my office, so I apologize for the not so good pics! Thanks for stopping by. Let me know what you think of my new hobby :)

Miss Me?

I've surely missed you!! Pardon me why I explain. I've been away for a while trying to get my health issues under control. Well, the doctor's have finally diagnosed me with Fibromyalgia and I'm now on a medication for that condition. It is incredible how much it's helped me. I still have some hip issues, but I'm in therapy for that. So, thank you for all of your prayers! Next......little Miss Maggie turned 2 a couple of weeks ago. I can't believe it's been 2 years since that precious little angel became our granddaughter. And...........she's going to be a big sister!! YES! My daughter-in-law and son are expecting their second child in September. Am I excited??? YES!!!!!!
So, I'm happy to be back crafting and to share my wonderful news with you. Now...since I've been away for a while, I wanted my first crafty project to use a sketch from my fav sketch blog......2Sketches4U.
So, here is my take on Laura's sketch #46: (I flipped the sketch)

I found this precious image online (it's a free vintage image). I printed it, chalked it and cut it with my handy oval cutter. I added this great gingham ribbon, the scalloped edge (Cricut - Accent Essentials), a couple of little butterflies and a few little blue pearls. The paper is from the SEI Morning Meadow collection and it's called Breeze. It has a beautiful shimmer to it. I think this card could be used as a new baby card for a biological or adopted child or even a Thank You card for a baby gift. Well, thanks for stopping by today and I hope to be "seeing" all of you real soon! Hugs........:)

Merry Christmas!

Well, I've not been up to scrapping lately due to health issues, but I just HAD to pop in and wish everyone a very Merry Christmas! To all of my blog world friends, I've missed you very much and I hope to soon be able to get back to creating. I will be visiting your blogs as often as I can over the next few days. I'm off work this week and I've got a little time on my hands to pop over and visit. So, keep me in your prayers and know that I miss you very much! I'm leaving you with a picture of my little Maggie. Isn't she too cute?! Merry Christmas :)

I'm still here :)

Well, I just wanted to pop in and let you all know that I haven't fallen of the earth's edge! I'm still here, just haven't been here as often. I'm still having my back and hip problems and after 4 doctors, still no real diagnosis. It has really hampered my crafting of late so I haven't been posting. I see a new doc in December and I'm hopeful that he can offer me some relief. Anyway, I've missed all of my blogging world buddies so much! I will be popping in to "see" you soon and I hope to be posting more frequently. Have a great weekend and Happy Halloween!!

(any prayers you can send my way would be totally appreciated):

MyGraphico and Tuesday Morning Sketches

Well, we survived the recent flooding and our basement is back to dry concrete again. I hope we don't see another drop of rain for a long, long time!! So, today the MyGraphico DT has partnered up with Tuesday Morning Sketches and we've put together some really cute cards. We were able to use ANY MyGrpaphico image that we wanted and man, it was really hard to decide. I had a birthday last week and I need to do some Thank You cards, so I put this one together. (Killing more than one bird at a time here :) I used the pear from the brand new release at MyG called "Ultra Mod Patterned" and you can find it here. I downloaded it, resized it, then printed it on some orange paper. I added some scrap papers, some rub-ons and a few little orange pearls. Super easy!! So, because of the partnership today, you could win a prize both at MyGraphico AND Tuesday Morning Sketches by participating in the challenge this week. Just use the sketch provided, a MyGraphico image, link up your creation and you could win! MyGraphico has so many really great freebies, so if you don't find one for purchase, just pick up a freebie and come join us. Hope to see you over there! Thanks for stopping by today :)

Here's the sketch we used for this week's challenge:

A little Sunday somethin'

This one is a birthday card for a friend. I used some sweet S.E.I. papers, some ribbon from my stash, a fabric beauty from Loralee Designs, some bling and a sentiment that is computer generated and then cut/embossed with my Nesties. I think she's fab! Thanks for stopping by :)

Autumn at MyGraphico

There is a new challenge today at the MyGrafico Challenge Blog and you're gonna love this one! It's a 1 - 2 - 3 challenge: 1 digital image, 2 designer papers, 3 embellishments. This week the design team is featuring this Autumn Elements set:

I chose to use the scarecrow image and I think he turned out pretty cute. I printed the image, colored it, added some stickles and pop dotted the shirt on the scarecrow. I did this in order to add some rafia underneath. The 2 patterned papers are at the top on down the side. My embellies are a couple of flowers, the stickles and some cording. So, thanks for stopping by and if you'd like to purchase this set, go here. Also, if you would like to participate in our 1-2-3 challenge this week, please come join us! It is highly suggested, but not required that you use a MyGraphico image, but with so many freebies on the website, why not use one of those and join in the fun?! Have a great week!!

"School Kids"

This week's MyGraphico giveaway is the School Kids set. So, the other DT members and I were asked to create a card or project using this set. I chose to make a tag for a lunch bag. Isn't she cute? She is just one of the really cute little images on this set. I colored her with colored pencils and shaded using baby oil. Then, I used my Cricut to cut the tag using Tags, Bags, Boxes and more and popped the little lady up with dimensional dots. So, what do you have to do to win this set? Just create a card or project with a Back To School theme, preferrably using a MyGraphico image and leave a comment with a direct link to your project here. If uploading to SCS/PCS or MyGrafico ning please use keywords: MG15. That's it! Easy peasy! Be sure to check out the other DT projects too. Each DT name is shown on the MyGraphico page.

Pumpkin Boy....

Doodle Palace has just released some fab new fall designs and the DT was asked to create some yumminess using some of these goodies. My card uses the new "Pumpkin Boy" design. Isn't he the cutest?? I've used three different patterned papers, some raffia, a computer generated sentiment and my little pumkin boy digi image. I printed him 3 times - once each on white, orange and green. Then I cut up the little pieces and paper pieced him together. I love this little guy and Doodle Palace has more great Fall images for you to love as well :) Head on over to the Doodle Palace and check out the other DT creations and while you're there, pick yourself up a set or two of these fab images.
