Happy Easter!!

Well another holiday has come and gone!!! I hope everyone who celebrates Easter had a wonderful holiday!! My family and I had a great day together, the weather was absolutely glorious and the food....yummy!!! I can hardly believe that the kids have to go back to school tomorrow!!
So I actually had some time to create a few cards this weekend even though we were getting ready for Easter. My son's 4th birthday is coming up on May 2nd so I decided to make him a card using the Create a Critter cartrige. There are sooo many cute images on this cartrige, I really had a hard time deciding which one to choose!! In the end I went with the Dinosaur, he is just too cute!!

card is 41/4 x 11in (not 81/4)

I hope you enjoyed the weekend and my card.  Till next time, Happy Craftin!!

"Roberts Crafts" Giveaway!!

Okay guy's, Roberts crafts,"", are having a giveaway. Please jump on over to their blog and check it out!!

It includes:
• Tonic paper trimmer. It comes with 3 blades, 2 sharp and 1 scoring. This is a really nice trimmer, it has a wide base. I love when they have a wide base like that, it makes placing the paper on it so much easier. And if you're like me and you do all your crafting on your bed or on your floor, the stability factor is fantastic! lol
• 3 Bugs in a Rug "Tool Time" collection. I am in love with all the little robots in there! I have two boys and adore it when companies come out with cute boy supplies that aren't camouflage or camp fire related. Who's with me? ;)
• Rockstar mat stack from DCWV
• Karen Foster sparkle burst brads - These are my most favorite brads I think I've ever seen. SO FUN
• Clear acrylic block for stamping from Studio G
• Animal Crackers stamp from Imaginisce
• My Cute Stamps mini stamp
• Petaloo Box Blends flower pack
• Glitter Glue from Studio G
• Paper Shapers punch - Dragon fly shape
• 3 spools of American Crafts Ribbon

So go stop by her site at show her some love, tell her I sent you and get a chance to win!!  Good luck to all!!


Well I started off the day trying to potty train my 4 year old son but that went down the tubes really fast!!!  Within the first 1/2 hour he had messed himself twice even though I had him in front of the potty with the cheerios floating in the bowl!!!  I don't think he is ready as of this moment!!  He is absolutely terrified of the potty!!  I really thought it would have been easier being he has an older brother and sister to learn from!!  Oh well, I will give him a day or two and try again!!  As for some fun stuff, I decided to go to Joann's yesterday with my Mom, daughter and son, in the pouring rain and wind, we had 50% off coupons that we wanted to use!!  I will put together a video of the great things I got and I will post it later on.  So until then enjoy your Sunday, God Bless and Happy Craftin!!

Well I really don't know where the week has gone but today is April Fools Day already!!  I have had a very busy week getting ready for the weekend..  We are going to have a little birthday party for a friends daughter tomorrow and I have been running around trying to pick some stuff up for her since her Dad bought her the Cricut Expression from A.C. Moore last week!!  He got such a great deal on it, it was on sale for $199 and it came with 4 cartridges, a mat and inks, how can you go wrong??  She's going to be sooooo suprised!!  The last time she was here she was having so much fun with mine.  Well anyway, I made her a card to put with her gift and I posted a picture of it below.  I hope you all had a great week.  Until next time, Happy crafting!!
