Purple Butterfly Card

Happy Friday Everyone!!

Here is a little more information on that project I'm working on.  I am currently making 50 thank you cards for a fundraiser event.  Syndi, the lady hosting the fundraiser, has a little girl who has Rett Syndrome.  Syndi briefly describes the syndrome this way, "Rett Syndrome is the ONLY medically known cause of Autism, along with Cerebral Palsy, Epilepsy, anxiety and Parkinson’s.  They have the most amazing beautiful spirits and are often called Silent Angels because they are mute."  She is having this event to help raise money for these Silent Angels.  

Syndi found my blog and asked me if I would make thank you cards for those who donated items for the silent auction that will go on during the fundraiser.  The event will take place tomorrow evening, Saturday May 1st from 6:00-10:00 in Lindon, Utah.  For more information on the event, please visit her website by clicking here.  There is also a donation column if you wish to donate money to this worthy cause.
 
Here is a sample of the cards I'm making for the fundraiser.  Rett Syndrome is signified by the color purple and with butterflies. 


I hope everyone has a fabulous day!

Hoot Owl Card

Howdy Ya'll!!!

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days.  I've been working on a pretty big project that has taken up a lot of my free time.  I'll post more about that project tomorrow!  :)

Big News!!  We got a new video camera!!!  Well actually my in-laws got us one (did I say how much I love them)!  I'm so excited that we have one!  It will be great to record all our kids' special events and I get to use it for my craft videos!  I'm super excited!  

So while messing with the camera, my DH (dear husband) decided to record me finishing up a card, without me knowing.  With a little editing, he got it to look and sound not so silly and informal.  It's just a video of me putting together the owl from the Create a Critter cartridge.  I think the card turned out pretty good.  I think next time I use the owl, I'll use different colors for the card itself, though.




Have a fabulous day!!  Happy crafting!!!

Nuts About U Scrap Page

Hey Friends!!

So I have noticed on my poll that there are a few votes for scrapbooking ideas.  I'm a little out of practice when it comes to scrappin, but I'm trying to get back into the swing of things.  I made this cute layout for a few pics of my hubby and me.  It may look a little empty, but that's because I wanted to leave room for a lot of pictures.  I hope you like it.  






I cut everything out with my Cricut Create A Critter cartridge.  

I hope everyone has a great day!!  Happy Crafting!!

Purple Butterfly Card

Hey Friends!!

First, I want to thank those who entered my giveaway over at Feather's Flights.  Congrats to my good friend, Mindy!  

Next, I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  My husband's graduation was yesterday.  It was a nice ceremony, even though it lasted 2 hours.  Needless to say my daughter had had enough after one hour, but she really did very well.  I was very proud of her!  

So the other day I made a couple butterfly cards for a benefit fundraiser (more details to come).  Here is one of the cards I made.  I need to get some white ink so I can put a sentiment on it.  I like it.  What do you think?

Happy Crafting!!!

Green Apple Card

Hello Everyone!!

Don't forget to enter my giveaway over at Feather's Flights!  It ends this Friday, April 23rd.

Sorry I haven't posted anything in a while.  Things have been a little busy.  My husband graduates this Friday so we are trying to prepare for that.  Also, his parents just flew in yesterday, so we have been spending time with them, which is great!  I love my in-laws!  Another good thing going on is that my daughter is finally acting like herself again.  She's 10 months old and for the past couple of weeks, she has not been happy at all!  She just seemed angry all the time.  We would be able to entertain her for about 5 minutes and then the next minute she was mad again.  We thought that she was teething, but she didn't normally act like that when teething.  So after a few days, I took her to the doctor just to make sure it wasn't anything health related and it wasn't.  The doc said she looked great, so that was a relief.  But the strangest thing happened.  When we got home, I put her down for her morning nap and she slept for 3 hours!  She has never done that.  And when she woke up, she was happy the rest of the day and hardly needed her binky.  My and my husband are beside ourselves to know what changed, but we have a couple theories.  Our first theory is that she needs more sleep and our second theory is that she is just starting to throw little tantrums.  Both could be correct.  We're just happy that she is happier again.  

Ok, back to crafty business!  :)  I made another super cute card with my Cricut Preserves cartridge.  I so love this cart.  I love the colors and all the cute fruit!  I must say though, that this isn't my best card, but they can't all be winners.  I hope you like it!


Have a fabulous day!  Happy crafting!!

Chicken Fajitas

Happy Friday!!!

So I am very proud of myself!  I fixed chicken fajitas last night for dinner and they turned out great!  I didn't really follow a recipe; I just made it up as I went.  

Recipe:
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 onion
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
1 package of fajita seasoning
tortilla shells
tomatoes and or salsa
lettuce
cheese
(any other toppings you like)

Spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray.  Throw in chicken strips and brown for 4-5 minutes.  Add fajita seasoning (fix as directed on package).  I only used half of the package since I was fixing enough for my husband and myself.  Add cut peppers and onion.  Cook for another 6-8 minutes.  Serve on warm tortilla shells with toppings.  Enjoy!

   

(I love my cute apron.  Just another surprise from my DH!)

If you have any questions about the recipe, please feel free to email me.  Have a fabulous day!  Happy cooking!!

Strawberry Card

Hello Crafty Friends!!

I just had an amazing weekend!  I had the wonderful opportunity to listen to leader of my church give very inspirational talks.  The main theme seemed to be centered around families (ie mothers, fathers, and children).  It made me want to be a better wife and mommy!  Saturday I got to have to girl time with some wonderful sisters from my church while my hubby was at a meeting.  We had chocolate fondue, strawberries, bananas, angel food cake, and cookies.  It was SO YUMMY!!  I had to practice self control so I wouldn't eat too much.  Sunday was spent with my family, of course.  We had a wonderful time doing things together and taking pics of my adorable baby girl in her Easter dress.  It was also nice to ponder and reflect on the true meaning of Easter.  I am truly grateful for all the blessings in my life!

Another thing that made this weekend so grand, was that I got 3 new Cricut cartridges!  YAY!!!  I felt like a kid in a candy story!  So here is just one card I made this weekend with my new Preserves cartridge.  This is such a cute and versatile cartridge.  When I first saw it, I couldn't wait for it to come out!



I would love to know what you think!  Also, if any of you would like to purchase this card or any others I have made, please email me.  If you like this cartridge, you can view more of what this cartridge offers by going here.  If there is anything on this cartridge you would like to be made into a card and purchased, again just email me.
