It's All About Olaf!

Good Morning and Happy Monday! 

I hope everyone had a great weekend!  What did you do this weekend?  I had a pretty full weekend, on Saturday, I taught my monthly Religion (CCD) class.  On Sunday, my grandson Mikey had his 3rd birthday party Olaf style.  

I made a couple of things for the birthday boy, take a look:

Of course a birthday card!

For this card, I used my Frozen Cricut Cartridge along with my Cuttlebug to create this card!  My sentiment is from Cardz TV! 

And of course a Birthday Shirt with Olaf.  I am totally loving my embroidery machine.  And it seems I learn something new every time I start digging into the the Sew What Pro software, like the fact it can covert images into an SVG file so I can cut the material using my Cameo rather than by hand!  Of course I had my machine since October and I'm just figuring that out.  LOL 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you again soon!!!

Until next time...........

M&M Valentine

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Valentine's Day!  And I hope your sweetie was good to you!

I have some Valentine treats to share today. 

This were made using some jelly jars, Valentine material, red ribbon pink and white scrap card stock, baker's twine, and a sweet sentiment from My Creative Time!   And of course some Valentine M&M's.  It was quick and simple and gives just the right amount of SWEET!

I also have to share my present from my oldest grandson, Brayden!  He really loves his Nana!!!!!

As you can see, he gave me a dozen red roses, a stuffed froggie (cause froggies are my favorite) and he made me some dynamite!  Because he says his Nana is "dynamite"!  LOL  He is the sweetest boy ever!!!!    

That's my share for today!  See you around soon!  
Until then..........

Vintage Bridal Shower Invite

Hello my crafty friends!  

I have a Vintage Bridal Shower Invite to share with you guys today.  My secretary is hosting a bridal shower for one of her friends and asked if I could help her make some invitations.  Of course I said yes and of course I took over the project.  LOL 

The card is 5X7 and the top layer is 1/4 inch smaller than the base.  We added a piece of lace tied a bow and added a flat back pearl to finish it off.  

It's a very simple card but really pretty!  We made 85 of these.  Yes, it's a huge shower. LOL 

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time........
