I haven't used one of my newer cartridges, Once Upon a Princess very much but wanted to make a little thank you card for one of my BFF's who is going to watch my son while we go to our oldest sons high school graduation!!   OMG !  The oldest is off to college!!!  Four yrs ago Kim convinced my husband who had just turned 50 that I, at 36 ,needed a baby and BAM we had Liam!  She was even in the delivery room with us! When I say she has seen everything, I mean she has seen EVERYTHING!!  LOL She truly is my BFF!!  So, thanks Kim for giving up your night to watch Doodie since he is not allowed in to the graduation.

Happy Mother's Day!

My husband told me I could get the Expression for Mother's day.  Ok, when he told me I could get the Expression I thought he meant the Pink one so I went to Michael's and got it.  When I got home, he said I thought you were getting the green one! AHHH he meant the E2!  OMG!! Oh well!  I had already opened it and got it all set for its big debut today and am not good at waiting for a new one so it's staying!! I hadn't even figured out my Cricut yet and now I am trying to figure out all the different settings on the Expression!!  I had a great day though with the fam and then I got to work on the MPS challenges uninterrupted for a few hours.  I hope you all enjoyed your day!

Mother's day!

This is the Mother's Day card I made for my mother in law! She is going to spend the night with us and have breakfast with us since the little dude is sick and we can't go out!  "Nanny" will be going back up north in a few weeks so I am glad she will be with us to celebrate.  Without her, I wouldn't have my awesome husband so I really am so grateful for her!!  I am linking this to the Patches of Pink Link up Party.

Happy Scrapping!

Happy National Scrapbooking Day! Or as I call it, an excuse to craft all day! lol  Apparently my son missed the memo that it was mommy's weekend as it is NSD AND Mother's day and he is sporting a fever! UGH!  Good thing his daddy is so awesome, he is taking care of both of us!
I am entering this into So Saturday Challenge #9 which is to use embossing.  I am still experimenting with my Cuttlebug and really need to use it more! I also used my I-Rock which I love!  Have a great Day! be sure to check out Card Creations and More by C  as Christina makes the most beautiful cards. I just love looking at her creations!!

Appreciate the Teachers!

Teacher Appreciation Week is the first week of May.  I love this week!  I am not a teacher but I believe in thanking the teachers who take care of my son all day and teaching him things that I know I would just not be able to.   Each day of the week I give a little treat to his teacher.  The first day I baked bread and gave that and an apple to her. After all, breakfast is the most meal of the day!! lol   Tuesday I gave her a cup with a packet of instant Latte mix and put a tag on that says, "Thanks a Latte!" and included a straw.  Today it was a pudding cup that said, Thanks for "puddin" up with me!  Tomorrow I am giving her this little pack of watermelon gum with a treat topper that says, "You're one in a melon!"  Friday will be a bouquet of flowers.  Be sure to thank your teachers this week!  I am linking this up to
