Birthday card

Uhhh.....I've moved my crafts into another room and it's a DISASTER ZONE!!!! but I realized I missed someone's birthday....aaaahhhh!!!! So I had to literally dig stuff out and clear a space and make a card.
I used the cricut Animal Kingdom for the skunk and the grass is from Plantin Schoolbook and I used the silhouette for the tags and sentiments.

Craftroom packed up

Here we go AGAIN!!!
I've packed up my craftroom and moving it to another room.....Have you noticed every time you pack up your crafts despite that you get rid of seems to multiply! I took off from work last week to move my crafts and it took me two days just to get stuff packed. I moved into the new room and got some things set up (shelving) and the week was'm taking off from work next week and HOPEFULLY!! I'll get my crafts ORGANIZED!!!
I had a meeting at work this let out early...hmmmmm....I'm 1/2 way to Hobby Lobby/Michaels...its been awhile....let me go "look"....I really don't need anything....HA HA HA
I first went to Michaels....LOOK what I found with my 40% coupon...Sew Easy(handle) thats all they had! then I went to Hobby Lobby....LOOK.... I got the mat with my 40% coupon and I got some extra heads and the ruler....SCORE!!!! HA HA HA....Glad I was just LOOKING...HA HA HA
I blame this all on my Mom.....he he he.....Last week when HSN had their crafting show my Mom was watching it with me and they showed the Sew Easy.  She reminded me that when I was little I used to love playing with "sewing cards".....IF your over 50 you'll remember those cards that had pictures with holes punched around the outline and you had like shoestrings to sew in and out the holes.....HA HA.....Well, I wanted to refresh my memory and see if I still enjoy "sewing" on cards....HA HA After all I am a card maker.
My problem now is WHERE to store this???????

Valentine for my boys

The other day I decided to give my boys a different Valentines. The front is the same as the others but on the inside I saw this file in the silhouette store and decided to make it for my boys. I included a Pizza Hut gift card. HA HA HA

Valentine cards

Here's my Valentine cards.
Everything can be found in the Silhouette store.
I was a little disappointed that it wasn't an actual puzzle, but I think it came out OK.
I cut the heart puzzle out of red cardstock and glued the pieces back in place except the one piece. (VERY TIME CONSUMING!!). Then on the inside I wanted the "piece" to print in white on red cardstock....but my printer wouldn't do it so I colored the back ground in red on white cardstock and just redid the one piece of the puzzle as a print and cut and enlarged it slightly so the word would fit then used a pop dot for dimension.

Here's my envelope I used a "heart frame" also from the silhouette store as my address labels.  For privacy purposes I'm showing you my Mom's (she lives with me) but for mailing I used black ink and printed everyones actual address. CUTE HUH??
