I have never in my life seen anything like the storms that came through the cities of Tuscaloosa and Birmingham today. F-5 strong tornadoes that were over a mile wide. Most of our state has no power and its getting dark and there are more storms to come.  Please pray for those families who have lost their homes and much more....

5 things about being a crafter

I craft because it makes me smile
I craft because it gives me a constructive outlet
I craft because I love to create
I craft because its something I can do with my kids
I craft because I love to make other people smile!:)

I got this award and I am so glad I did. Thank you Traci!!

Ladies when accepting this award, you must list 5 things about yourself (including why you like crafting), pass it on to 5 others, and when you post the award to your sidebar, the award creator would like the award linked to her gracenotes4today

Here are 5 things about me

  1. Crafting really frees my mind from stress without it I would lose my mind.
  2. My favorite part of crafting comes at the end of a project     {The Details}
  3. I enjoy making cards for family & friends but sometimes I forget to mail them. {I am working on that}
  4. I don't have any animals not because I don't like them but I like having a Poop Free backyard.
  5. I knew I was addicted to crafting when I choose to buy punches & paper over a pair of pumps.
Here are the 5 ladies that I am passing this award to.

I used Gypsy Font and some vinyl to make these cute bow holders as a gift. I got some plain wood at Michael's then I painted them pink and sprinkled glitter dust on them. Then I added the vinyl letters and the flourish and dragonfly from Gypsy wanderings. I bought the wooden butterfly at Michael's and glued them on. I used a sure bonder staple gun to attach the ribbon so it could hold weight .  This project was a lot of fun to make:)

Then I bought a letter G at Michael's and decided to make it a bow holder too.

create a critter is still my fav cart

SO here are just some of the cards I have made recently using this cart. All are made using scraps from my paper stash.

Here is a card that my daughter made using this cartridge. This was her first card she made with this cartridge:)

Now I am getting into paper crafting and I LOVE L O V E it!!

Victoria's banner

I made this with the lettering delights pennants. I cut them out on my cricut and then I inked the edges, cut some letters and glued them on and strung them on heavy twine. Bing, bang boom and it was done. Supe fast and super easy:)

Thank you Momo!

Wow. That was so kind of Momo to help so many of us have new friends and followers. I think we should all send her a card to thank her!
