Good morning to you! I am so lucky to have today off! I am excited to get a bit of crafting done and not have to rush around! I have lots to share with you today. Some of it crafty.....some of it personal. I know it is January and I should be posting Valentine's Day projects, but I never had a chance to show you a few of my projects in the October issue of the Cricut Magazine. So here is the first project.....a pumpkin card that uses the Wrap it Up cartridge and my Gypsy to weld the pumpkins together. I also added a few flowers using the Mother's Day Cartridge.
My LO shows my kids carving/painting their pumpkins. (Giving Cort a knife would be a dangerous proposition! LOL!) I used the Autumn Celebration's Cartridge for the pumpkins and title. I added a few leaf stickers to the pumpkins and rhinestones to the cat's eyes.
My last card today is a vintage witch. She comes from the Happy Haunting's Cartridge. I applied glossy accents and black glitter to her and a purple rhinestone "necklace." The flowers were cut using the Mother's Day Cartridge. The background paper was swiped with white paint and I machine stitched around the perimeter.
On a personal note, my girl had her big cheer leading event this past Saturday. I turned from mother into crazy paparazzi lady the whole day! It is one of those days where my heart feels ten times bigger. It is such a special day for the cheerleaders and the basketball players. The local papers and TV crews were there to record the event. (as well as this crazy mother!; ) Here, Cortney was patiently waiting to go to the game!
I love these next two photos of her shaking the heck out of her pom poms!!!
Here is the the group performing their half time show. : )
This is our little squad.....just 5 girls, but the bestest friends you ever want to see!
I love the blue uniforms this year too......must be because they match Cort's eyes. : )
Thank you for letting me share these special moments in my life and my family's life. It means a lot to me. I appreciate your sweet comments too.....
Have a great day my friends!
