Forever Young Cartridge Purse

I finally broke down and purchased the Forever Young cart. I didn't think I would have a use for it since I am the mom of two boys and a Star Wars Cartridge would be better for this house (Hey Provo Craft, are ya listening?!) But I found that there are so many purses on this cart and I love it!

Now before you take a gander, please keep in mind, I am very, very, mechanically challenged. I can't put together kits, paper crafts, etc. So, this, my friends is an accomplishment!

This is Flower number 8 Purse. I also did the flower as well. I ran the middle part of the flower through my Xyron and then glittered it up! I also inked the leaves and the remaining flower and added a bling to it. It is perfect for a couple of Hershey's Kisses inside!

Until Next Craft!

Aunt Word Book

My aunt's birthday is on Halloween and I have been meaning to send this word book to her at Mother's Day but I flaked. So, I am determined to send this ontime for her birthday!

Until Next Craft!

Birthday Card....Take Two

I started making a card from "Card making with the Cricut" and it went in a totally different direction but I think it is cute nonetheless....

Until next craft!

Since my husband assured me that there are no more mice in my craft room, I went into my room and make a birthday card.....

Hope you have a great Sunday afternoon! It is pouring rain and very, oh so very windy here! 

Until next craft

Is there a mouse in the house?!

I am so bummed! I have found, I thought was 1 mouse in my craft room but it turns out (after the pest control guy came), there were 3 mice that have decided to put a change of address to my craft room, my sanctuary! We are hoping the last mouse is caught. I have not stepped foot in that room since last week! I have thank you notes and invitations to do! Can't Mickey and his friends understand that!? Anyway, I will return, hopefully this weekend after my husband goes in there and white glove cleans it!
I will be the lunatic holding a soup ladel behind him!

Please forgive me if the thank you to my wonderful co-creators of my blog hop are late!
