Guess what UPS dropped off to me in the mail today!!!

That's right my Cricut Expression 2, 5th Anniversary Edition arrived today.  I have been holding my breath since I got the call that my order was being placed on back order, although I called and ordered before it was officially launched.   I am just thankful my order was honored , I am doing the happy dance, but now it's time to learn the new machine and introduce my gypsy to it's new friend.

I will be back later after I cut my first project.

Mother's Day Basket


I hope all the mothers. mother-to-be or mothering-mentors had a great day yesterday.   I ha a great day with family spending quality time.  I wanted to share the Mother's Day Basket my siblings, son, nieces, nephew and I gave to my mother.  

 She had a basket of goodies, lotions, perfume, sprays, plaques, a framed picture of the grandchildren, cards and flowers; and my sister cooked a slamming dinner for her.  It was her new Jenny's Precious Treasures that made her tear up (and everyone in the room)

I painted and decorated an AC Moore box her favorite colors, red, black and silver.  

On the inside of the box, I matted a picture of her parent(both watching over us from heaven) and a two pictures of her children.  

On the top of the box I made a collage of her precious jewels, her grandparents, husband, siblings, children and grandchildren.

I hope you enjoyed, and thank you for stopping by.

Day 8 challenge is to create a distressed tag. It must use a minimum of 3 colors of ink, use at least 1 image stamp and 1 sentiment stamp. The sentiment stamp must have two different ink colors and stamp -- this should be one press on the tag and not "stamp one color, clean stamp, stamp second color." A unique piece of ribbon or other embellishment should be used for the hole in the tag.

Tim Times Ten Challenge-Day 7

Day 7 challenge threw me a wrench and everything else in the toolbox..lol. I had to create an acetate tag. Using a recycled piece of acetate, we had to dry embossed and inked, be two-layered, include an image, and you must use some type of "dimensional" product to embellish your image -- fun flock, flower soft, heat embossing, etc.  The theme had to depict a fall or winter scene (and I am thinking happy spring/summer thoughts).  The acetate should be from some packaging that is recycled plastic and help prevent us from killing our own planet with non-biodegradable materials such as plastic...

Here is my take on this challenge
Dry embossed acetate frame with fireberry and gray whale

3-D Christmas Stocking
Piece of 6x4 acetate
Silver foiled cardstock
Red glitter cardstock for the stockings
Cuttlebug Frame (I did not have this label, to name it)
Color/box black, fireberry and gray whale Inkpad
Clear Stamp Christmas silhouettes stamps
MS Sugar cube icicle
